Two movies this weekend:

Gone Girl....as good as the book, perhaps a little better.

August: Osage County...I loved it. A very dark, depressing, train wreck.

I found some article that was along the lines of "the best films you haven't watched on Netflix", and queued up all the recommended films that were above 4 stars (in Netflix's personalized rating). Great movie.

Snowpiercer is a solid sci-fi thriller.
Blue Ruin, an interesting, fairly unique suspense film
I Saw the Devil is a Korean horror-suspense film. Super gory and pretty disturbing, so skip this if that bothers you.
Broken was an entertaining coming-of-age type film, with Tim Roth and Cillian Murphy, both of whom I enjoy.

Next up in the queue:Short Term 12, Headhunters, and the Netflix original documentary "Virunga", about the park rangers that patrol Virunga National Park.

Interstellar. It was as bad as Gravity, and nearly twice as long. Three hours of nonsensical melodrama in space.

My friend was so bored that she went out twice in the middle of the movie to watch another movie. Both times, when she returned and asked what she missed, I couldn't come up with an answer.

I expected much more from the writer of Inception.

It's sad that as we get smarter and smarter about science, our science fiction keeps getting stupider.

Pinnochio, (2002). Directed by and starring Roberto Benigni, Italian. Live action. Imaginative, charming, and funny. In some parts, touching. See it in the original Italian audio version, not the English-dubbed. Recommended.

Nightcrawler, a suspense thriller about a sociopath that joins the ranks of those filming emergency situations and selling the footage to TV news broadcasters . We haven't gone out to a movie for years but we did recently and we both thought it was a good movie.

"The Judge" with Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall. Somewhat of a down-trip story about a Chicago lawyer returning to his rural, small-town and clashing with his father. Engrossing as it unspools, the movie doesn't quite come together. ( There's too many characters with too many back stories elbowing each other in the ribs).

On the other hand, Downey has some verbal fireworks which plays to his strengths, and Duvall does what HE does best, though I don't believe he's seventy-two -- as stated in the movie -- for a minute.

I loved Saving Mr. Banks as well; my favorite movie that year.

Recently watched:
Ivory Tower; fantastic documentary on higher education. I had seen it at its premiere at Sundance film festival and watched it again and enjoyed it.

Chef: food porn with great music. Fun.

Reservoir dogs: an oldie I hadn't seen. I think Tarantino appeals more to male audiences.

Salmon fishing in the Yemen. I enjoyed it. I like Ewan McGregor. Big Fish is also a great film.

In the theaters:
Boyhood: excellent.
Jersey Boys: go see the live show instead.

Saw Gone Girl with DW and thought it was quite well done.

Interstellar with DS and thought that it was long and kind of boring, predictable. Saw it in IMAX and wouldn't say that it added much when compared to Gravity which really took advantage of the format. I wouldn't go back to see Interstellar again.

Loved "Saving Mr. Banks."

Just watched "The Social Network," loved it. Really hadn't known much about the background. I actually hadn't realized these were all Harvard guys seriously obsessed with getting into a final club. It confirms my impression that social prestige is still alive and well, and is what separates the Ivy League schools from the merely academically excellent schools. I loved the scene where the Winklevoss brothers visit Harvard president Lawrence Summers. I wonder how their bitcoin ETF is coming along?

I've watched it a few times, liking Rex Harrison's performance more each time. Also, if you liked "Night Train" you might also like Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes as there are similarities.

We saw "The theory of everything" last night, the Stephen Hawking biography. It was really emotional and very well done movie.
At times, it is hard to watch the progression of his delibitating ALS disability, but the director still manages to also come up with some funny situations.

I second the positive review of Fury. It's a bit cliched but I found the life of the tank crew to be intriguing. An on-line site said that it was estimated that it took ten Sherman tanks to defeat one Panzer.

Not sure exactly who/what recommended this to me, but we watched 'Amelie' on Sunday night.

Didn't know what to expect but it was very enjoyable - a nervous style like 'Moulin Rouge', memorable characters and very Parisian in its charm.

"All is Lost." Wonderful, gripping movie; should have been called "The Old Man and the Sea" (pace Hemingway).

In its almost complete absence of dialogue, it reminded me of my favorite section of another film I liked, "The Black Stallion" - the section where the boy and the horse are alone on the island, getting to know each other (I watched that film with my daughter many many times when she was little and fascinated with horses; thankfully it was still enjoyable after dozens of viewings).

Yesterday, I went to see Faces of Eastern Europe, 13 short films from 13 European Union countries presented at the Goethe Institute in D.C. All films were good, some were excellent. The ones that emotionally influenced me the most were Day after Day (Hungary, 2001) and Alexandria (Romania, 2007).

Day after Day is about a day in a teenage boy's life. Alexandria is about a father, his daughter and other people in the daughter's life. Both films are remarkably realistic and have unexpected turns that still stay with me.

Maleficent, with Angelina Jolie.

It's categorized as a dark fantasy, which I would agree. I liked the excellent high-def production quality, which is what I would expect from Disney. The close-up facial expressions of the main character are very effective.

What's the downside? It's produced by Disney, you could just sense where they were restricting things to keep the PG rating. I think this storyline could be put to better use if someone other than Disney produced it. Perhaps Tim Burton.

Seems high-- more like 5?

The problem was a standard Sherman 76mm gun would bounce off the front armour of a Panther.

However:

- a British American innovation was the Sherman Firefly with the 17 pounder gun. Not quite the dreaded German 88, but significantly improved penetration. Thousands were built

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-7cHchSB5Q
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFf74AD_RkY
(both of those clips are giving me an error, which might be due to my location)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sherman_Firefly

- the Allies also had the mineral resources to produce a tungsten carbide AP shell, the Germans found they just did not have enough tungsten to make these (I think they did make some with natural, non radioactive, uranium). That shell also improved penetration

Probably more like 10 Shermans to kill at King Tiger (Tiger II). Penetration only by blind luck.

Gone Girl - If I wasn't in a public theater I'd have been screaming at the screen: don'tdoitdon'tdoitdon'tdoitrunrunrunrunruuuunnnnnnnawaaaayyyy!
Interstellar - lost me in space, but nice visuals
Birdman - better than I expected, but I'm not sure how the story ended -- I will remember Emma Stone's name, though
Whiplash - holy cow, J.K. Simmons! This guy! Wow, whew... EDIT -- Addition, actually...he got the Oscar for best supporting actor. Well deserved!

Housebound, a horror/thriller/comedy made in New Zealand. Young female felon is sentenced to seven months of house arrest in her mother's old house way out in the boonies. Cut off from the drugs and cell phone signals and unsavory pals who make her life worth living, we watch boredom bring her aggression issues to a fever pitch - just as a murderous spirit begins to stalk her through the house. By the end you will be feeling very sorry for the murderous spirit.

Funny, refreshing switch on the usual helpless teenage beauty terrorized by the supernatural. The humor is very British. Nice use is made in the plot of the ankle bracelet that holds her prisoner; a mere humiliating symbol of isolation and outsiderdom in the beginning, it takes on a thematic life of its own as she struggles with her authority issues.

Transformers: Age of Extinction. If you like high speed driving through crowded street scenes and a lot of action, you want to see this movie. As for the plot? Well, it's Transformers.

For a PG-13 movie, I was surprised to see product placement for two companies which market to the over 18 crowd. I guess they had to throw something in for the adults, as the movie is sponsored by a toy company.

Out of the Past. 1947 classic noir with Robert Mitchum, Krik Douglas and Jane Greer- considered by many one of the best noirs ever. Great 40s dialogue and cigarette smoking styles throughout...every other line reminded me of that line from Play it Again, Sam where Bogie tells Woody: "[quote with offensive language removed by admin alex]". I was at the edge of my seat until the ending, which was a bit of a "Then they all got run over by a truck" ending. For that reason I would not put it in the same category as, say, The Big Sleep, Chinatown or LA Confidential.

I'm a bit horror film fan, but most are just not that good. I recentlys aw this gem. If you like the genre, this is a good one.

The Babadook (2014)
Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles to discipline her 'out of control' 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible to love. Samuel's dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both. When a disturbing storybook called 'The Babadook' turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced that the Babadook is the creature he's been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control, he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son's behaviour, is forced to medicate him. But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her, it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real. (C) IFC

Posted by Sans SouliersWhiplash - holy cow, J.K. Simmons! This guy! Wow, whew...


I'm really looking forward to Whiplash. I have been a big fan of J.K. Simmons since Oz. He is amazing. He even makes the Farmers Insurance commercials interesting.

I'm also looking forward to Birdman.

I started a Netflix subscription, so have been watching quite a bit. Mostly things I've seen, but a few new ones...

Nebraska- I thought it was pretty good, however I can understand how some people thought it was a 'very good' movie. Happy I watched it though.

Hours- Decent movie, a little bit different. Paul Walker, while maybe not a great actor, can make a ton of stuff entertaining

Expendables 3- I was entertained, but was hoping for a bit more. Hoping Stallone will come out with a few more solo movies before he hands it all in.

'The Hundred Foot Journey'.
If you've ever been to France or love great food or like a feel-good, somewhat funny story, this is it.
While not highly publicized, this is a nicely done movie. I would rate it '2 Michelin stars'!
