Re: What was the last movie you watched?

Les Miserables

Flawed but engaging modernisation of the celebrated play. I thought Jackman was utterly convincing in the mannerisms he used to portray his character at the different stages of his life and the tight lipped emotionally restrained sing songs with Crowe were utterly compelling. Even though neither men are great singers, this felt like perfect casting because you could hear the story and hurt in their voice and it felt genuine.

This brings me to the film's downfall. The younger actors might have been superior singers with higher notes and everything but when they sang it still felt like High School Musical, there was no compassion, no pausing between the notes, no sense of any real loss. I stopped listening to the words when they bellowed out their numbers and this in turn distracted me from the story being told.

Then there was Anne Hathaway whose supporting performance is worth the ticket price alone. When she dies inside and says goodbye to her dreams and worth and any sense of a reasonable life she thought she might be able to hold onto through her tear stained musical number I got goosebumps.

Overall, an enchanting if at times frustrating experience.

8/10

Ghost Rider 2: better than the first but still crap. Idris Elba was cool. I just don't know what the fuck is up with nic cage I use to think he was a capable actor years ago. This gets a 4/10

Men in Black 3 - pretty good film, a few new characters introduced, and a really heartwarming, albeit saddening, twist at the end. A beautiful way to wrap up the trilogy.

Cinderella Man

Wouldn't say it's my favorite film that pertains to professional boxing, but it's definately up there. Highly recommended for sure.

Inglorious Basterds.

Movie hits a perfect note within the first 20 minutes.

Nouvelle Vague.

Re: What was the last movie you watched?

Last Saturday I saw two great movies

The Hurt Locker

Great movie that I think could easily be compared to Zero Dark Thirty, but I think that they both have their differences. The acting was great and Jeremy Renner delivered a star making performance that will not be forgotten. 9/10

Schindler's List

One of the best movies I have ever seen and is one of Steven Spielberg's greatest movies. Liam Neeson did a great job as Oskar Schindler as well as Ralph Fiennes, whose character came off as a badass. This is a cinematic masterpiece and I HIGHLY recommend this to everybody. Thank USA for airing this without commercials. 10/10
