Moneyball was good too. A lot of it has to do with the director. Sorkin gets too much control over his tv shows and gets to indulge his worst impulses, whereas the director can temper them if he has the good sense to do so.

Lots of movies today.

Started with Silver Linings Playbook. Went on with Life of Pi in 3D. At home, I began watching my Woody Allen collection -- so I started out with Banana. I enjoyed them all, probably SLP the most, followed by Life of Pi. Banana was good too.

Life of Pi was my second movie in 3D (first one being Avatar) and at first it felt odd, but in the end it was a nice experience. I guess it would work well without 3D too though. I'm not yet sure whether I'll go see the Hobbit in the movies (and whether in 3D and with/without HFR). I guess I will, just for the sake for being in the know about the HFR 3D buzz.

how you get so much free time? awesome.

Switching studies (or more precisely, location) at the moment. So besides finding a new appartment, a new tenant for my old appartment, moving all my stuff and a bit of studying, I've got some spare time. wink.gif

Sad story re: cinema. Pretty much all movies get dubbed in Germany. So all mainstream cinemas only show dubbed movies. It's hardly bearable to watch it once you've seen a movie in the original version. One of the very few cinemas in Hamburg that screen original versions, and probably the one that screens the most, will go out of business this February -- lease expires and the owner increases the rent fivefold. frown.gif

I'd like to see both, too. smile.gif
the impossible wasn't good. solid acting and a true story but it just shouldn't be made into a movie. you already know what's going to happen from start to finish.

My only gripe with the film was that it felt its length at times.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I had a feeling that they should have ended it after the shootout instead of tacking on 20-25 minutes of more action. Ultimately though, I thought it was a very entertaining movie.

I watched Silver Linings Playbook today. Bag it up with Argo and Life of Pi and give em back to the indians

Intouchables. Great movie. Splendid acting.
And, well, P&P.

Tomorrow, I'll go see The Hobbit in HFR 3D and Django Unchained afterwards. Excited.

Hobbit was disappointing. Pacing was dreadful

Les mis was ok. Dont understand the gaga

Looper was engaging. Kid is an amazing actor

Dont watch total recall

Prometheus was great. Loved the references to the old films here and there

Abraham Lincoln was boring and dreadful. Dont watch.

Watched inside man again. Was ok.


I just need to convince the lady to go watch Durango unchained with me
