Doppelganger - 4/5

A scientist working on a machine to help the disabled becomes stalked by his own double. A dark comedy with elements of horror from one of Japan's best Kiyoshi Kurosawa. Contains some excellent split screen camera work.

Livide (2011)

The atmosphere, score, cinematography, FX work and set design are all beautiful here. Leads are pretty solid as well.

The issue for me was that there were just too many ideas and a confusing (final) 45 minutes.

Red 2 - Very interesting movie, Bruce Willis and John Malkovich were very interesting and funny to watch.

Steve Niles' Remains - 1/5

In post apocalyptic Nevada a few people try to survive a nuclear accident that has transformed most of the population to flesh eating zombies. The bad acting and weak story can't save this one.

Killing Them Softly - 4.5/5

A mob assassin is brought in to track down those responsible for robbing a high stakes poker game. Intelligent film that compares the economics of organized crime to that of the US banking and financial system. Some great performances and dialogue by a top notch cast.

In the Heat of the Night (1967)

What a fantastic film. Easily the most reluctant pairing of cops I've ever seen on screen. Poitier exudes such grace and confidence, all while working in a nearly impossible situation. Great seeing a young Scott Wilson in there, too! And Steiger just chews through the picture with such panache. Still a powerful film, even today.

Re: Last movie you watched

The Book of Eli- Why anyone gets so upset about the so-called religious themes in this movie is a mystery to me, since they're pretty much nonsense. As a shoot'em-up post-apocalyptic action flick, however, the movie is actually pretty fun. Some cool set pieces and nice design elements, and Washington and Oldman have a blast chewing the burned-out scenery.

Clear and Present Danger- Classy Tom Clancy adaptation by Phillip Noyce. There's a degree of sophistication in how the film presents the world as a massive mess of conflicting interests rather than traditional good guys and bad guys. Good performances, some cool tech that's way outdated now, and a few good action scenes. Overlong, but also pretty good.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire- A retread of the original, but still quite good. High production values, well-designed, faithful to the novel to a fault. A bit overlong, but well-cast, classy, and handsome.

Modern Times- Chaplin classic with a well-deserved reputation. Some stinging social commentary, fantastic set pieces, and a genuinely warm tone. Great stuff.

White Zombie- Poverty Row classic made with a budget that makes Clerks look like Avatar, and surprisingly effective. Nice and lean, iconic performance from Lugosi, and some remarkably effective set design and atmosphere. In the digital age where low costs are now more possible than ever, it's impressive to think such a thing could have been made when cinema was so young.

Magnificent Obsession- Douglas Sirk melodrama in rich color. A bit flat and arch, but great performances from all involved and a great sense of the overwrought the way only a director with a proper sense of opera and theatricality could do. Pitched over the top, but not so far that it falls over.

The Driver- Walter Hill action thriller with the director's great sense of B-movie aesthetics. Good action scenes, nice archetypal performances, and a great sense of neon atmosphere that predates Michael Mann and co. by a good few years. Just don't tell Nicholas Winding Refn.

The Way Way Back. 3.5/5 pretty damn cool movie. I can pretty much watch Sam Rockwell in anything. Really good change of pace role for Steve Carell.

New World

It's by the same guy who made "I Saw The Devil". I won't be surprised if they make a US version of it.

I wish the ending was just the half way point in that one.

Grown Ups 2 - With all the hate, I expected to hate the hell out of it, didn't, actually enjoyed it (it's innocent afternoon TV fodder) - just glad I didn't pay to see it. 3/5

For those curious to see this, it has been available to stream on Netflix for a little while now (in Korean with English Subtitles). http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/New_World/70270998

Also to note, Sony bought remake rights to it back in April.

Any movie that has a cameo from David Cronenberg and features a bad guy turning down premartial sex with high teenage girls so he can beat them to death using each other can be considered nothing less than a masterpiece, but I still think you're low balling it.
