The Phantom Carriage (1921)

Brilliant silent film. Story has some similarities to "A Christmas Carol", dealing with regret and the consequences of inflicting pain on those who care for you. Loved the non-linear way the narrative unfolds, which made for a rewarding viewing experience as everything revealed itself... and the whole "spectre of death" angle really added to this morality tale's appeal.

Heat (1995)

I looked for messes, I looked for tape, I looked for messy tape.

None to be found.

Always loved that film. Blu-ray ain't too bad either, though I miss the minor line of "Ferocious aren't I?" Al Pacino was very quotable (some of them approaching hilarity but I'm too familiar to laugh now) in this film.

Gas Food Lodging
Not as lovable as Anders' Mi Vida Loca, but I liked this enough. BTW, I don't get what this tagline has to do with the movie:

Reitman's Young Adult.

Actually enjoyed it a lot. Charlize being a completely unlikeable character didn't bother me. The movie did a good job depicting her delusional state, and her inability to escape from her past.

Tiny Furniture

This is the movie that got Lena Dunham's name out there. The knock I'd heard on this one going in is that nothing really happens. That was a pretty accurate assessment. However, I still enjoyed it. It really felt like a prequel to Girls, so if you're a fan of that show you should check this one out.

3 WOMEN

if you like Bergman's PERSONA or David Lynch's MULHOLLAND DRIVE then i'd recommend this one. a wonderfully surreal mindfuck of a movie.

I absolutely hated this movie and everything about Mavis. But maybe that was the point.

Re: Last movie you watched

Home Alone - I love that the address of the house in the film is the actual address of the real house. Pretty cool. Watching it again - like I do every Xmas - I'm noticing how good of an actor Culkin was at that time. He had natural ability in front of the camera.

I completely agree, I thought that Young Adult was a great movie, and Charlize Theron is an excellent actress (not bad looking either!).

Re: Last movie you watched

The Hobbit: Enjoyed this one. I think it helped that I wasn't constantly comparing it to the other LOTR films. Part of me wishes that The Pale Orc was done practical instead of CGI.

Never Let Me Go: Dystopian Society? Depressing? I'm in! I enjoyed all the leads, especially Keira Knightley (Ruth). How incredibly heart-breaking and tragic that character was, ended up being a highlight of the film for me.

Really great movie with heart. I'll own this one soon. Lots of fun cameos.

Take Shelter - Good movie & another great performance by Michael Shannon.

A Dangerous Method - Excellent, Cronenberg does it again.

Re: Last movie you watched

I turned on TCM this afternoon and caught the last 20 minutes or so of Carol for Another Christmas. Sure would buy this on DVD if it was legit release. I did find a seller on the internet but it sounds like a boot. The seller claims its public domain but I wonder why the usual PD releasers do not have it?

Re: Last movie you watched

Well, glancing at the Wikipedia page it looks like that film hasn't been shown on TV in over 48 years. Today, and the 16th of this month, were the only scheduled airings.

Sounds like something I'd love to see. Anything with Serling's name automatically piques my interest.

The Last Boy Scout (1991) - Tony Scott was a badass director, mad bad ass films and had the courage to go out like a badass when he knew he was dying.

Dredd

Fucking BADASS. All of you guys that were heaping praise upon this one weren't wrong. I really can't wait to grab this on BD when it hits in a few weeks. It's too bad that audiences didn't go see it while it was on the big screen.

Jingle All The Way: Went from 'so bad it's good' in my mind, to 'I'm surprised this is good'.
