Anchorman 2 - Gets a bit excessive at the end, but there was enough hilarious shit in it for me to unreservedly love it.

The scene when they first met after the bar and sat on the park bench, each unsure if the other was going to make a move was, I found, absolutely electrifying.

The big one though, the ten minute one. That's the one that's been generating all the talk. That's the one I meant.

I thought the park bench scene was great too. Also the second bench scene with just Adele.

For Christmas my wife bought me 50 Blu-Ray films by Warner Brothers. Some good movies and some great movies in the set.

Watched Argo. I liked it but wasn´t blown away by it. It looked fantastic, though.

Also caught up on netflix and watched "Side Effects". Nice turn around in the story, didn´t expect it at first. "The Warriors", which I wanted to see for a while. Very simple plot but quite enjoyable. And last, "Before Midnight". What a great ending. Loved every minute of their conversations, such amazing writing from all 3.

Looking forward to watching Barbara, which is now on Netflix. I'd like to see how it represents East Germany compared to The Lives of Others which, based on my admittedly limited knowledge, does it brilliantly.

Thanks for the tip - Barbara is in my que now. Watched this last night. Thumbs sideways.

- interesting role for kristin scott thomas, but it just misses the mark. Not as involving a lynch piece, not pure violent tarantino delight; an odd quasi-reality of inhuman interactions, long experiments with color filters, and synth rips from scarface. Perhaps I missed something since I haven't seen the reference films (el topo, the holy mountain, etc).

I didn't like Only God Forgives much at all. It's one thing having anti-heroes, but these characters were both repellent and bland. Had some visual flair but that was about it.

La Grande Bellezza. Fantastic

Watched this today. Really bizarre. 

 

Also watched the 400 Blows last night. I amazed as to how fresh the movie feels even after 20 plus viewings.

Watched North By Northwest last night. I am not 100% but I would have sworn as the train was leaving the station and Grant is looking at the window to make sure he gave the cops the slip, that they are standing on a "20th Century Fox" red carpet.

 Finished the Boardwalk Empire, the Homeland and now I'm in the middle of the 4th season of the Wire.

Post Tenebras Lux

What a piece of shit. Almost as bad as Holy Motors. The imagery was amazing, really 10/10 stuff, and there were some really beautiful moments and some sensational acting. But the movie just had no cohesiveness, or point really. It was a mess, way too artsy fartsy. How this dude won best director at Cannes for this is beyond me. Watch the trailer below, it seems like it could have been something special.... nope.

Just saw the one of the best movies of the year.

 

 

The storytelling is sly and sophisticated, but extremely captivating - especially when you realize that all you're really watching is Phoenix carry on half a conversation. Cinematography, design and wardrobe mesh beautifully to create a very subtle future that could be tomorrow or 50 years from now.

 

I can easily see three Oscar noms: original screenplay, cinematography, and best actor. 

 

Wow.

A Room With A View.

Just fine - from visuals to script to acting. DD Lewis perfect as ever.
