    La Joueuse D'Echecs (2011): 7/10. Above average French film about a cleaning lady who discovers she's a chess prodigy. Kevin Kline took some time off from making out with Phoebe Cates to co-star as the mentor. Think "Good Will Hunting" only it's about chess, not math.

    Michael Mann's first and one of his most critically acclaimed motion pictures.

    I liked it. I like Manhunter, and I can see a lot of similarities between the two. The way some of the shots are framed, the jargon-heavy dialogue, the synth-heavy score, and even the actors (Dennis Farina and William Petersen made their big-screen debuts in Thief in background roles).

    The particular version I watched (online) had a poor sound mix; I could barely hear and understand the dialogue at certain points. That took away a lot of the enjoyment for me. Criterion just released a 4K transfer on Blu-ray; I might borrow it at some point to compare. The sound mix may have been deliberate, as Michael Mann sometimes does unusual things like that (e.g. jump cuts).

    Watched great Gatsby. Awesome soundtrack.

    Finally got around to watching both footloose.

    I hate Kevin bacon... and I'm obsessed with Miles Teller....so needless to say I like the newer one better.

    Watched: Place Beyond the Pines...eh I had really high expectations... I was disappointed

    Watched The Lucky One... eh it was a cheesy romance but whateves

    Watched That Awkward Moment...like I said.. I'm obsessed with miles teller lol

    But I don't like going to the theatre. Nobody in the crowd ever laughs. People r so laame.

    Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2 - not as funny as the preview made it out to be. Then on top of it, if vegetables food have feelings, what does the food that is alive eat when everything is alive. How do vegetarians feel about this? I should have known.


    Had to wash my brain a bit by watching Gran Torino - with Clint Eastwood. Brought some grumpiness with reality for me.

    The Lego Movie was fabulous. I literally cried laughing, and I don't remember the last time I did that. And the animation is extraordinary. A well-deserved 99% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not even the predictable plot point of
    could ruin this movie.

    Did you see it, @Jennifer?

    I've wanted to see it ever since I saw the first trailer, but I don't know if I'll make it out while it's in the theater. Maybe I will. I laughed so hard during the trailer itself. I actually haven't been to a theater movie for 1-2 months at least now, haven't felt like spending the money. I bet Hobbit 2 was the last thing I went to see.

    I think it's rather awesome that it was running a 98-99% of RT, which beats the pants off many more serious movies with far larger marketing campaigns. I'm inclined to think the few hold-outs just are elitists or don't have a real sense of humor.

    I don't want any spoilers, though. Trying to dodge those.

    ---

    Probably the best "new" movie I saw recently was on Bluray, "Prisoners." It avoided many of the flaws of that genre and also led in some unsettling direction, without apology. It might have tied together a little too neatly, but... some decent acting there.

    I still have to finish "Children of Men." I only watched about half of it, then forgot to get back to it.

    Yesterday I watched The Prestige (which I will tentatively call my most favorite movie... although it's competing with Endless Sunshine and Pan's Labyrinth). Well-acted, well-written, well-directed, good art direction; the movie itself structurally reflects the movie's themes; the movie works whether or not you've seen it before and "know all the secrets", everything still makes sense regardless. (And if you don't figure out the secrets, it's not that the answers weren't there, it's that the movie skillfully misdirected you -- "Are you watching closely?") Plus, psychologically it's this horrible story of two men where one man can't let go of another's mistake, so they end up in an accelerating jealous circle of revenge and upstaging until both finally pay a heinous price. One might look a little better than the other, in the end, but both are complex and corrupt in their own way. Even when you hate their choices, you can understand their justifications. And an unrecognizable David Bowie as Tesla is a real coup for Nolan, he's great.

    I have trouble thinking of something that could and should have been done differently.

    Then I watched "GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra." Complete fluff, with everything a scripted cliche, but fun, cute, lots of cool action, and the actors enjoy it and don't take themselves too seriously.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
