Crazy Rich Asians was hilarious and accurate haha. More towards the 'Crazy' part from my perspective.

My wife saw it (I was baby sitting the 18month), she think it’s a glamour version of Korean drama... don’t think it will do Asia though

Watched this last night with my son. What a visually stunning movie this is!

I wanted to like it and I did, right until the last 20 minutes or so when things started to get a little silly. Not a bad film overall. Nice cameo from Aunt Lydia too.

Watched 'La Strada' for the first time yesterday evening.

I saw this at the Museum of Modern Art recently. I had not seen it at the cinema for 20 years. The performance of Quinn is quite extraordinary, especially if you got to know him in the Euro schmaltz he did later in life to cash in. He captures a range of emotional sadness that is so heart breaking that the film is almost unbearable - the stupidity of not accepting love from another human for no reason except shear cussedness is so perfectly portrayed.

Some passable movies for a change:

MV5BNGUxZmJkZTgtMmI1Ny00Mzg3LWFlY2QtMjNkM2QwZGVhYTQyL2ltYWdlL2ltYWdlXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNjc1NTYyMjg@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_.jpg

The structure is much like Singing in the rain but with worse acting(Cyd Charisse is a graceful dancer and I loved her bit in Singing in the rain but I begin to see why she rarely got leading roles..), not nearly as funny, fewer memorable songs and absolutely no chemistry in romance department. It's not a bad movie, but frankly it doesn't live up to the hype.
So what do you want from pairing the great female Hollywood dancer of all time with Astaire? ACTING?! So when Pavarotti lumbers across the stage but hits the high notes you're gonna say, lose some weight?

You know it’s a movie after all... not a dancing contest. I don’t expect Elisabeth Taylor type of performance but something close to half the level of Debbie Reynolds would be nice

Joaquin Phoenix prowls with a damaged animalistic intensity along some dark corridors of the human psyche in this violent tale of sexual, political perversion and human corruption. The direction and cinematography give this film a poetic fluidity in its visual realisation. An intense cinematic experience not for the faint hearted which delve deep in to that heart of darkness which resides within man.

saw the Dawn Wall documentary last night and thought it was great.

I'd say it has oscar potential, although the field is pretty stacked this year (and a sports movie won last year which might move some votes around).

As a climber, I wished it had focused a little more on some of the technical elements, but it is obviously trying to find mass appeal. The behind the scenes stuff that played after the credits was interesting--seeing how they got the camera crew in place and managed to get some of the shots.

Was given some tickets to a prerelease screening of this last night. This is a very unique and original film that blurs the boundaries between documentary and reenactment.

This is a highly original piece of cinema. The movie moves seamlessly between reality which is presented by the culprits breaking the forth wall and linking to specific sequences with the actors then engaged in the narrative action. One of the most interesting films I’ve seen this year. Highly recommended.
