X-Men: Days of Future Past: Already shared my thoughts in the review thread. One of the best X-Men movies.

The Ramen Girl: starring Brittany Murphy Aired on The Movie Channel the other night. Surprisingly really charming movie. Filmed almost entirely in Japan. Good cast with lots of humor

The Internship: Aired on Cinemax. Decent comedy with some charm. Vaughn and Wilson were good, but this lacked alot of the edge from their previous works. Also, predictable as hell.

Dracula (1968)

I wonder if Francis Ford Coppola ever saw this version...



Not that this one isn't guilty of plagiarism: it directly rips off Dracula's death scene from Horror of Dracula, and some dialogue from the 1931 version.

Denholm Elliott seems like an odd choice for Dracula, but he's terrific.

I'm glad someone put this on YouTube so I could finally see it. Much better than I was expecting.

12 Years a Slave. Had to keep pausing it because it was just so horrific.

Fong Sai Yuk- After seeing Corey Yuen Kwai's terrific action choreography in so many mediocre international movies, seeing him actually direct a movie on his home ground in his element is wonderful. A broad, scattershot, occasionally messy but always exciting blend of drama, slapstick comedy, political intrigue, and electrifying action sequences, with Jet Li Lian-Jie as a Cantonese folk hero who winds up battling injustice as part of a secret cult. Beautiful cinematography, action sequences you have see to believe, funny comedy set pieces, and great performances. Those who think Li is too serious should definitely check out his comedic chops here, Josephine Siao Fong-Fong, a longtime industry veteran, is an absolutely delight, and Vincent Zhao Wen-Zhuo is a terrific villain who's a great physical match for Li. HK cinema at is absolutely scintillating best. Dragon Dynasty's DVD is yet another hack job, the censored US cut with a mono Cantonese track spliced over it, and a disappointing transfer. Still probably preferable to the non-anamorphic HK release with a new 5.1 mix full of horrible new FX. Sigh. I hate this fandom. Maybe I spoke French, the HK Video version would be good, but even then you get forced subtitles. FML.

Millennium (1989) - Very interesting time-travel premise, hindered by dated effects and a lousy romance subplot revolving around the miscast Kris Kristofferson and Cheryl Ladd (who sports a rockin' Flock of Seagulls hairdo for most of the movie). Basically, the future is so polluted that the human race has become infertile. To ensure the survival of our species, scientists develop time travel. They send agents into the past to rescue passengers from airplanes that are about to crash so these healthy specimens may continue to reproduce. As the passengers were destined to die anyway, transporting them into the future would not cause any potential time anomalies/paradoxes.

Burke & Hare (2010) - John Landis returns to directing, with Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis playing the title duo. This grim, true-life story of two men who turn murder into profit by selling fresh victims to a local doctor teaching anatomy is given the comedic treatment. Unfortunately, this film only manages to be mildly amusing at the best of times. Isla Fisher pops up as a former prostitute and love interest for Pegg. He uses his share of the funds from the cadaver business to help her character stage an all female version of Macbeth -- a subplot that doesn't come across nearly as funny as it sounds on paper.

You're braver than I for being willing to try to stomach that movie.

3.5 out of 5 - Really entertaining horror flick that imo does it right - no time wasted explaining what's happening or why, it just happens and at a pretty good clip. Not perfect, but a good little ghost story.


4 out of 5 - Beautiful, trippy little movie that will be a cult classic. Fans of Paprika will find a lot to like. It meanders a bit and gets muddled a lot, but it's also memorably odd.


2 out of 5 - Good performances from Juno Temple (plays cracked out well) and Michael Cera (Completely unlikable and creepy). Kind of a dull movie, while it also is a bit of a horror movie that doesn't explain what's happening, it just isn't all that much fun to watch beginning to end.

Non-Stop - ***/5: Entertaining and predictable Neeson action yarn.
X-Men: Days of Future Past - ****/5: The best X-Men film by a wide margin. Still can't decide if I like The Wolverine a tad more.
A Million Ways to Die in the West - ***/5: Just as I expected, a live-action Family Guy cutaway gag. Had a couple of real laugh-out-loud moments. Far from a comedy classic, but it seems like it would be good background noise.
The Lego Movie - ****/5: Best animated film I've seen in a very long time. It bad everything.

Upstream Color (2013) on Netflix streaming. I must agree with the many reviews stating that it gets progressively less interesting with each act, although I must admit that the final act didn't gel for me until the final shot. Unfortunately, both of Carruth's films have fallen a bit flat for me.
