    Monuments Men........

    Terrible movie making... I think it could have been a great story, but the cliches, one liners and predictable corniness made it almost unwatchable. I have only walked out on 2 or 3 movies in my life. This would have been number 4, but my date wanted to see if they recovered the Madonna and Child. As you watched the cast, it was hard to believe they would make such a bad movie.
    The subject deserved so much better.

    Do not waste your time.

    Cheers,

    Winter's tale. I liked it for the story. On the fence about the acting. Colin Farrell's second best acting performance aside from in bruge. It's def worth the watch was planning on seeing monuments men till last week when people here bashed it.

    Caught a film from a couple of years ago, The Town with Ben Affleck. For yet another story set in Boston with Ben Affleck using his accent...it was decent. I was expecting something really predictable and with a lot of action...there was an element of subtly and some decent acting by the girl...there was also suspense that built slowly, and the end was not a typical Hollywood ending... Worth a watch if you like gangster stuff...

    Beyond the Black Rainbow, highly recommended.

    Ending pissed a lot of people off, but I loved it.

    Some films I watched over the past week in no particular order:

    Fireworks Wednesday by Farhadi. Really excellent film by one of my favorite film makers.

    Le Cage aux Folles by Molinaro. Nicely done.

    Last Year in Marienbad, Night and Fog and Hiroshima mon Amour all by Renais. They all try to unite two opposites: the past and our memory of it. To do so he breaks everything down into discrete parts, and then puts them all back together like a jigsaw puzzle. This is why he favors montages, which are bits of information strung together to create a unified whole. I highly recommend all three of them.

    Blood Simple by the Coen brothers. Not upset I watched it but I wouldn't consider viewing it again.

    The Hospital by Hiller (written by Paddy Chayefsky). Highly recommended. Chayefsky is such an excellent writer.

    Sweetie, Bright Star, and Holy Smoke all by Jane Campion. I enjoyed all of them very much.

    Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Punch Drunk Love all by PT Anderson. Only enjoyed Punch Drunk Love. I found the other two a bore to sit through, which is a shame because they are so lengthy.

    Society (1989)

    Was pretty much a movie length version of the TV show Goosebumps, with a not so subtle allegory. If you like corny 80's horror movies (1986 version of House) you might like it.

    Don't know that I've ever seen Anatomy of a Murder, but NxNW is banging. This forum steals so many pictures of Carey Grant from that movie.
