    Well, for today's movie I tried to watch The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning. But it was just so bad that after 25 minutes, I shut it off. I couldn't take it. So I am now watching the original to make up for it.

    She's Out of My League. OK romantic gross out comedy, not as well written as others in the genre but generally funny with a couple of really hilarious set-ups, and it has it's heart in the right place.

    Predator 2. It's not like I'm a huge fan of the Predator franchise, but I have seen and liked Predator and Predators enough that I thought I should check out the middle film too. I liked it. On the one hand, this is definitely the most dated of the 3 films with over-the-top 80's cops and bad guys, and it's easy to see how it borrowed heavily from popular 80's films Robocop, Lethal Weapon, and Ghostbusters. Also, taking it from the rainforest jungle to urban jungle probably sounded like a clever gimmick, and while it did create some interesting possibilities it mainly made it feel like a standard cop story. In spite of all that, the last 25 minutes were very exciting [SPOILERS] starting w/ the battle in the slaughterhouse, chase across the rooftops, and ending in the Predator ship. That's what I like best about the Predator series: one-on-one, head-to-head, and in that sense it really delivered.

    Ramona & Beezus. It was cute, not much to it, really, but it's nice to have a family movie without suggestive stuff that goes over the kids heads, and free from fart-jokes and other gags.

    The Karate Kid (2010). Surprisingly well made and effective remake. Iíd go so far to say itís one of the best films Iíve seen this summer. I was pretty skeptical at first but I will see pretty much anything w/ Jackie Chan. I can never say the new film is better than the original Ė Iím way too biased having grown up with it and the 1st sequel. But despite the fact the new one follows the events of the original pretty closely this new one absolutely feels like a complete film that stands out on its own. The direction and pace really develop the characters and relationships. Iíll always love Miyagi more, but Jackie Chan and the writers really make Han into a completely different character. Miyagi was a quiet but cheerful man that had generally overcome his demons, whereas Han has been beaten down by life. Itís a very different personality for Chan to be playing, and very much one of his best performances to date. And no matter your opinion of Jaden Smith the kid, what he lacks in experience he makes up for with raw projection and nails every poignant scene. He is a formidable child actor who makes Dre less angry and more vulnerable than Daniel-san was portrayed. My guess is none of the new filmís scenes will ever be iconic as ďwax on, wax off,Ē but I daresay a couple of the remade scenes play better than the original, and Smithís splits kick is pretty incredible. Iím really surprised by how much I liked this film.

    Leap Year
    For some reason, Amy Adams will always be Giselle to me. This was a sweet movie. Matthew Goode was just the absolute cutest. It makes me really want to find a cute guy with a British or Irish accent that isn't Robert Pattinson.

    Brooklyn's Finest

    Despite an AMAZING cast I found the movie pretty boring to be honest.

    It was a decent story, nothing really new or overly amazing though. And I must say ... this was the most grainy Blu Ray I've seen (even taking into account older movies). Not sure what the deal was, or if that's what the director was going for or what. It was actually distracting.

    Shutter Island

    i know i'm super late on the watching shutter island ferry.. but i did enjoy the movie. i saw it more as a deep character development movie than i did for its plot, and Leo DiCaprio, i feel, had a better acting performance than he did in Inception (which he did very well in as well). watching it a second time, i really get to see all the extremely small details that point in the direction of the true story

    1962's How The West Was Won Got to see it absolutely complete, widescreen, and uncut with NO interruptions. It even included the full five min intermission with the songs and footage shown, also had the EXIT for the end with the five minute songs and no credits, just the word EXIT. (Credits were at the beginning of films back then). What an incredible film and a list of Who's Who for the cast.

    I first saw this when was 7 years old in the Cinerama Dome (Archlight) theater in Hollywood. If I remember correctly it was filmed in Cinerama specifically for the theater (it has a HUGE wrap-around screen).

    This always has been one of my favorite films and a delight to get to see it in it's original presentation again!

    Over the last three weeks I watched a bunch:

    On DVD:
    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - The only Harry Potter movie I haven't seen yet besides of course the upcoming Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2. I really enjoyed this one. I liked the whole time travel/shift sequence, and it filled a few gaps for me in the overall Harry Potter story line.
    Followed this one up with:
    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - The first Harry Potter movie I saw in the theater. This was just my second viewing since the theater. I haven't read any of the books, but people say this one has some key scenes cut out. I can't comment as I haven't read the book, however the movie is still enjoyable.

    I didn't have the next two Harry Potters on DVD yet, and I was still in a fantasy movie mood so next I watched:
    The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe - just as fun as the first few times I watched it.
    The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - I guess I'm one of the few that enjoyed the movie. Looking forward to Dawn Treader at Christmas, but disappointed Disney bailed out on this series.

    I went on a quick road trip to Alberta, up to Edmonton via the Jasper parkway and down to Calgary. While in Edmonton, at the West Edmonton Mall went to see:
    The Sorcerer's Apprentice - I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed it. When they first announced this project I wasn't really interested; sorcerers in modern day New York? But with each trailer they released it caught my interest more and more.

    At home on DVD, felt like a classic live-action Disney movie. Went thru my library and realized I haven't watched this one yet:
    Davy Crockett: King of the Wild Frontier - Not bad. Quite enjoyable. Last time I saw it was sometime in the 80s on TV on one of those Disney aferrnoon shows. Would be good if these movies were resurrected again and sparked interest in and breathed new life in Frontierland in Disneyland. I've got the 2-movie set with River Pirates, so I'll be watching that one in the near future.

    Last night at the local theater:
    Inception - Wow! What a show! You can't go wrong with Chris Nolan. I can best describe this as Mission: Impossible meets The Matrix. I've been hooked on Nolan's movies ever since he filmed Insomnia in my hometown of Port Alberni. Inception is complex and is definitely worthy of repeat viewings, like Nolan's The Prestige. Looking forward to Nolan's next project which will be Batman 3, or is that 7?

    In the mean time I managed to get a hold of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on DVD, so that's what I'm watching next.

    It was pretty good. I love Steve Carell and of course The Rock. Not super fond of Anne Hathaway, but she was pretty awesome in this. It was action and comedy so I was definitely glued.

    I REALLY like this movie. The only thing I didn't like is the liberties they took with geography.

    Walt Disney Concert Hall, golf course, train tracks.... and then a bridge over water? Definitely not within walking distance.

    Sherlock Holmes - BORING! It made me goto sleep twice today.

    *my reason for having no choice but to watch it*

    My job made it a special movie day today. The "associate" decided to pick Sherlock Holmes. I could have picked a movie too. But there was no good choices for us to choose from (I wish the Blind Side was one of the choices) . Though, I did guessed Sherlock Holmes. But that was a very small want from beginning.

    Sorry for anyone that likes Sherlock Holmes. For now, on Sherlock Holmes will not be my cup of tea. I needed a pot of coffee, after seeing this.

    Doubt with Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was quietly intense.
