I've been busy the past two days.

  • TED: I've always claimed that Seth MacFarlane is either hit or miss with his comedy. This is a hit. Good laughs.
  • THE AVENGERS: 2nd time seeing it. Enjoyed it just as much this time around.
  • SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED: Wonderful movie. Highly recommend this movie!
  • YOUR SISTER'S SISTER: Nice little film. Recommend to catch this when it comes out on video.

COSMOPOLIS - WTF is the only description for this. I think I only stuck to the end as I was determined to get something out of it and was hoping for some kind of resolution or conclusion. Neither was forthcoming.

BRAVE - really nice animation, and a great start to what could have been an excellent movie. 

Instead, a plot twist that seemingly came out of nowhere brings the film to it's knees.  There's humor, but really pushing the boundaries of what's making fun WITH Scottish people and what's making fun OF them.

I also would not recommend this movie to young children.  There were quite a few scary scenes.

I'd not waste any time at the theater with this one.  Maybe it's a rental, but I'd most likely recommend it as a "if it's on Cable while I have nothing better to do..." kind of movie...

Just got home from MOONRISE KINGDOM.  My girlfriend and I loved it.  The phrase that comes to my mind is "modern fairy tale."  Wes Anderson is a true auteur and the cast was terrific, including the child actors.  Whether you see this in the theater or on DVD, don't miss it.

The Amazing Spider-Man.

Had me fairly absorbed for the first half, and then it sort of fizzled out. By the end I felt like I had overdosed on CGI web-swinging shots.

It has some jaw-droppingly dumb moments, like one where Peter Parker bends a goal post by throwing a football at it.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: Wonderful movie with a great cast. The story, characters and the locale all felt truer than The Darjeeling Limited maybe because the movie let itself be carried by the story and characters more than the director trying to be clever and artistic.

 MIB 3, My daughter and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Not as good as the first but way better than 2. Josh Brolin really nailed young K.

Been playing beat the heat and seeing as many movies in a super cool movie theater.

  • ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER: A bigger POS than I expected. Walked out after 45 minutes.
  • AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: I talked about it in the official Spidey thread. This was a disappointment because they completely changed who Peter Parker is. A well made film, just not a good Spider-Man film. The Spidey in costume stuff is fun to watch.
  • TO ROME WITH LOVE: The latest Woody Allen film. A good but not great effort from Allen. There are four stories that have no connection to one another. It would have made more sense to take the approach of EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SEX* and shoot it as four complete stories instead of cutting them together. Editing them together made for a disjointed movie. Fans of Allen will still enjoy this effort as there are some great moments. The Alec Baldwin/Jessie Eisenberg story is the strongest and most original of the four. This will not have the mainstream appeal of MIDNIGHT IN PARIS.

TED -- I find MacFarlane's animated work to be more miss than hit, but this movie was incredibly funny.  I think he will have a very good career as a comedy director, but I hope he works in front of the camera as well.  He comes across in interviews as very charming and likable.
