    very few movies hold a candle to goodfellas, but that is really besides the point. i never handicap a movie because it was not a great as some other movie. i judge it on its own merits, and by that standard, casino was superb.

    Stitches, don't get me wrong - I like Casino A LOT! The only reason why I drew parallel was because both these movies were made by the same director, same actors star in main roles and both deal with similar subject.

    Gigantic - Paul Dano and a terrific Ed Asner and John Goodman in a quirky NYC set indie.

    Very entertaining. Might even have been great if some douchebag colour grader hadn't got his hands on it. There's *way* too much of this - it's painfully noticeable in every goddamn scene. Such a shame, as modern made films set in the 70's can look great and authentic (Argo, Münich) when they don't resort to this crap.

    Saw "Her" by Spike Jonez tonight and was blown away. It does a great job of deconstructing and rebuilding the idea of love and attachment.
    Especially enjoyed the scenes with the ex-wife, flashbacks and present time. Wondering if it was inspired by Jonez failed marriage with Sofia Coppola.

    Watched The Incredibles last night - first time since seeing it with my niece and nephew years ago. Such a good animated movie.

    Saw Don Jon. I think I enjoyed because I watched it alone, without my wife, so didn't have to defend "how guys act". The interaction between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlet Johansson is great. She plays a very convincing Jersey girl and controlling flirt. I liked how they made her less than perfect.

    Fun movie, but I suggest not seeing it with a female.

    I hated Don Jon. The least enjoyable from the recently seen films.

    Competent, apart from overly mushy ending. Worth checking out how the film deviates from the actual events.



    And just finished this: [​IMG]

    Hadn't seen it for some years. Still magnificent; hard to believe it's made by the same crew as the vapid Hobbit movies.

    ^^ I washed the whole trilogy again the other week, and they truly are excellent. ^^


    A classic.


    I thought the concept of the movie was great but I didn't really love the entire execution. I will say that Scarlett Johansson's portrayal of a horrible jersey bitch was probably the best part of the movie.

    Sup guys.

    Saw "Enough Said" on the plane. It was really good. Couldn't help thinking it was a "mature" Elaine Benes the whole time. Not in a bad way.

    "Long Walk to Freedom" on Friday. The writing and acting were both great but they didn't really explain how/why Mandela was recruited into the ANC or how he rose to the top or how he changed.

    Enough Said was an amazing film. So sad to have seen Jim Gandolfini for the last time in a motion picture [​IMG]

    Glad he went out with a bang. I think I would have preferred the movie had it ended after their "breakup"
