Just watched Annie Hall. The last and first time I watched a Woody Allen was over a year ago, it was Manhattan. It was absolutely iconic, but the Muriel Hemingway plot line skeezed me out. I liked Annie Hall.
Ralph Fiennes 'Coriolanus'. Surprisingly good, given the production values of a provincial rep. Of course most of the merit lies in the text.
Gerard Butler is a revelation though. We know manly grunting and wrestling is well within his sphere of expertise, but it turns out he can articulate and move at the same time, which is always a bonus. I found him quite compelling. Perhaps because he was playing it gay. 4 stars.
Danny Boyle's 'Trance', I don't know why DB so frequently feels the need to ruin a piece of perfectly inoffensive cinema with insane bloody theatrics in the finale. I suspect it's because he lacks depth and thinks spectacle is an appropriate substitute. Disappointing. Not even the marvellous Mr McAvoy could save it. 1 star.
'To The Wonder'. Quite possibly the worst pretence of a film ever released. You know how sometimes movies can be so bad they're good? Not even that. Malick should be shot for crimes against Art (and humanity).

I just watched a movie called, "42" about Jackie Robinson. This was a very good movie. I would give this a 9/10. I also just watched a movie called, "Deuces Wild" with Stephen Dorph. I would probably also give this one a 9/10. This was a really good movie and it reminded me of a mix between "The Outsiders" and "A Bronx Tale".
