Captain America: the Winter Soldier was entertaining. Bit the camera technique used for the fight scenes made for tough watching. It took the Bourne feel and made even more jittery. It felt like an etch-a-sketch

Rewatching Hunt for Red October. Such a good movie.

Edit - apparently Mctiernan was released in February, good for him. Hope things turn around and we get some more films from him.

Double edit - "Mosht things in here don't react well to bulletsh.

The very cool poster for Cannes 2014 was just unveiled:

Nice, Mastroiani was a cool customer.

 

Saw Noah at the weekend; everyone else I went with thought it was rubbish. Given the fact that everyone knows how things will turn up I feel Aronofsky did a decent job of introducing some unexpected stuff. Beautifully shot, especially the Luke-on-Tatooine and the history of the universe scenes. I have a feeling they'll re-release this next year for an Oscar push; Crowe is on screen for 90 minutes or more, with a variety of hair and beard styles and combinations. Overall an OK flick with a ponderous third act.

 

I'm off to find some berries now, got a craving for some reason...

Watched The Raid 2 the other day. Man the theater was going nuts haha. Movie was really, really good. IMO it improved from the first in almost every way. Of course due to the first being set entirely inside the apartment complex, the feeling of claustrophobia and the kind of suspense that naturally brings is missing in the second. But (minor spoiler from second) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
if you've seen the second the fact that he is undercover in a way brings the same kind of suspense from being "trapped".
Most critics seem to prefer the first while people I've talked to tend to like the second.

Joe starring Nicholas Cage yesterday. It's similar to Mud in story. A little darker tone but IMO not even close to being as good. I'm still bias towards Nicholas Cage, however. I just can't take him seriously. Some part of me will always be laughing at him.

Match Point by Woody Allen today. It was alright. Got kind of bored in the middle but the end saved it a bit.

Very interested in watching The Great Beauty and A Touch of Sin.

So, I finally watched Avatar. I am one of those people cursed with the aversion to watching or reading the same thing that everyone is already talking about. I am also usually broke, so going to the cinema is rare. But I still wanted to see the film, and saw it at the Library.... Even on my small tv and without 3D effect, it was a pretty exceptional film. I enjoyed the storyline and the constant action....absolutely beautiful and reminiscent of some scènes from Neverending Story at times, for me anyway...

 

Would've been good in 3D on the big screen... maybe its time to change my ways...

If you haven't seen Gravity from last year yet try to seek it out in 3D, there might be a few theaters still showing it.

I've only seen three movies that were made better for viewing by 3D.

 

Avatar, Gravity and Dr. Tongue's 3D House of Stewardesses.

I usually try to avoid 3D, but I can agree with two of those. Gravity definitely deserves to be seen in 3D on a big screen. I had to look up that last one; it wasn't what I expected, but the 3D was very well done. Didn't care much for Avatar (3D or no), but it had some great use of neon colours:

J̶o̶h̶n̶ ̶S̶m̶i̶t̶h̶ Jake Sully was a great original character, too.

Scorsese's Hugo was pretty good in 3D and Prometheus was better in 3D than 2D (even with the stupid story, I caught it in both 3 and 2D in the cinema to compare shog[1].gif).

shit, never got a chace to watch gravity 3d. pooo

Parts of the story and characters may feel lacking, but visually it was definitely the wildest ride I've personally had at the cinema.

i heard the same. coincidentally, I felt the same way way about avatar and yet was blown away that I watched it several times in theatres.

About to watch Blue is the Warmest Colour... Hopefully I can stay focused. Hard to watch movies at home IMO

quick update: Good movie. Slightly underwhelmed considering the rave reviews. Enjoyed the ending.
