Are you some kind of entertainment journalist? You seem to always see super early screenings and Red carpet premieres.

The Sound of Music- Robert Wise's classic adaptation of Rogers and Hammerstein's final collaboration. Waaaaaaaaaaayyyyy too long, but lots of fun. Earnest (some might say cheesy), and shot on gorgeous Todd-AO 70mm with Wise's precise camera-work and beautiful compositions, and a nice eye for grandeur and the extraordinary detail and color 70mm brings. Andrews and Plummer make a fun and hugely engaging pair, the kids aren't annoying, and the cinematography never ceases to fill up the eyes, though the film's thriller-esque detour in its final acting into a tale of escaping Nazi-occupied territory is an odd turn. Good musical numbers have made the film a sing-along cult favorite, and the exuberance is pretty hard to resist. Incidentally, having the HDTV with SRS in the center of the room with an AC unit behind it while my bed is in the opposite corner just might have something to do with the horrible acoustics I got from SRS and even the stereo downmix. Better late to realize than never than never. Probably would sound stunning in 7.1. Also, is soft focus hard to render on Blu, or is it my TV? I should calibrate the damn thing.

Dullsville. For me, it was the exact opposite of awakening. What would that be--sleepening?

The Grand Budapest Hotel - sadly for me this ranks with his previous MK at the bottom of my WA favorites list

Just saw this on HBO the other day. I actually like these low budget IFC Midnight movies.

Basically it's about 7 people who decide to participate in a "game" being orchestrated by a lunatic millionaire. He offers them some life and death choices.

I really liked Jeffrey Combs in that film!

Just finished watching Werewolf Fever (2009)

Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella (1997) - Seeing the 1965 version on the Disney Channel as a kid was probably my first exposure to the music of R&H. This remake starring pop singer Brandy features garish costume/set design (purple, gold and chartreuse are everywhere) and a "rainbow" cast featuring a black queen, white king and Filipino prince. Brandy is slightly out of her element in the vocal department, but Whitney Houston really belts it out as the fairy godmother. A couple of songs ("The Sweetest Sounds" and "Falling in Love With Love") were added from the Richard Rodgers catalog and seamlessly woven in to pad out the score. The computer effects look a tad dated, but kids will still probably find some wonder in this adaption. Personally, I'll take the Lesley Ann Warren production any day of the week.

Clue - Speaking of Miss Warren, she co-starred in this 1985 cult classic. I know it's gained a huge following since it's release, but I never got around to seeing it until yesterday. While it didn't provide me with a single belly laugh, it does supply a few solid chuckles ("Flames... on the side of my face." God, I love Madeline Kahn). The cast all bring their A game and help elevate the material, but it's not something I'll be revisiting any time soon.

Frozen - Cute enough, but the Disney animators really need to work on distinguishing their female character designs. I know they're supposed to be sisters, but Anna and Elsa have the exact same face... which also happens to be he same face as Rapunzel in Tangled. Still, the songs are catchy as hell and the dialogue is fairly snappy. Best Disney animated film since The Lion King? Well, maybe... though I think I enjoyed Wreck-It Ralph a bit more.

Mother (2009) - Korean drama from director Bong Joon-Ho (The Host). A woman goes to great lengths to prove her mentally challenged son is innocent of murdering a local girl. Kim Hye-ja gives a flawless performace as the title character. I'm surprised Hollywood hasn't remade this, as the story seems like perfect Oscar bait material.

The Day the Earth Stood Still- Robert Wise's 1950s sci-fi classic about a spaceman and super-robot who come to warn against nuclear power. A bit dated and didactic (some might say the message is a little crypto-fascist), but also iconic, beautifully shot, and lots of fun. Performances are solid all around, and though some FX are dated, others have held up surprisingly well. Wise's clean compositions and some gorgeous B&W cinematography make the film a visual treat, while the narrative is nice and tight-remember when an SFX sci-fi film was 90 minutes? Still pretty damn good.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - I've always gotten a kick out of this one, because it's obvious style over substance and it works on that level. The Blu-ray is stellar.

The Stranger Within - 2.5/5

A woman becomes pregnant even though her husband had a vasectomy for three years and she has not been with another man. OK horror/sic-fi made for TV film written by Richard Matheson (Twilight Zone).
