ARGO - This film in and of itself is fantastic. It's a classic with the same riveting pace and social/historical import as ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN. But beyond the film itself I've learned that Affleck changed some of the facts. In other words, he didn't trust the drama of the story he chose to tell, so he amped up reality. I know he's hardly the first, but this time it seems so pointless. The real story is great. A film just as exciting could be made based solely on the dry facts, but Afleck couldn't do it or didn't trust himself to do it.

I was really impressed with Ben Affleck's first two films, Gone Baby Gone and The Town, so I'm really looking forward to this. The tampering with facts issue aside (All the Presidents Men did it, too) he's becoming a far better director than he ever was an actor, I think.

You can't deny that when he wants to be, he can be a bloody good actor.

I completely agree, but I don't think I'd seek out a movie on the strength of him starring in it in the way that I've started to with whatever he directs.

BACHLORETTE - Puts Bridesmaids to shame. Funnier, coarser, wiser.

DJANGO - Bummed me out and left a real bad taste in my mouth.

HYDE PARK ON THE HUDSON - Jesus fuck, what a boring movie, which Bill Murray does not a thing to help.

LINCOLN- Jesus fuck, what a boring movie, which Day Lewis does something to help. Also Kushner's occasionally brilliant script, though there are some flat-out bad moments in there too.

ZERO DARK THIRTY - An oddly cold, emotionally vacant movie. That's the point, I suppose. Left me with a cold, emotionally vacant response.

SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK- HATED this movie. Quirky, attractive people initially don't get along, but they are too hot to NOT fuck each other.

LES MIS - Probably a really good movie, just not for me. I started skipping around once my eyes got used to the mindblowing effects. What'sherface is really good.

TEXAS CHAINSAW - Big surprise: it's not too bad. Well made, good enough plot, and there's a moment near the end when Leatherface is getting beat up and we feel kinda bad for him. Neat trick.

SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS- I liked it a lot, particularly the ending which turns the movie's meta ways towards something deeper.

BERNIE- Almost unbearably slow for the first hour, but it's a movie that I've had difficulty shaking off since watching it. Jack Black's performance is lovable, as always. Dude'll win an Oscar someday.

SAVAGES- I guess it's dumb to complain about a movie with such a title, but this very unnecessary violence and lack of moral center (and really lousy ending) put me in a queasy, bad mood.

ARGO - This film in and of itself is fantastic. It's a classic with the same riveting pace and social/historical import as ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN. But beyond the film itself I've learned that Affleck changed some of the facts. In other words, he didn't trust the drama of the story he chose to tell, so he amped up reality. I know he's hardly the first, but this time it seems so pointless. The real story is great. A film just as exciting could be made based solely on the dry facts, but Afleck couldn't do it or didn't trust himself to do it.

So the best movie of the year is actually not. Very frustrating.




Thats a good roundup of films. My faves of the year shook out like this:


15. Once Upon a Time In Anatolia (total mood film)
14. Cloud Atlas (ambitious and oddly moving)
13. The Grey (existential and not what I expected in a great way)
12. Perfect Sense (truly under rated and released apocalypse film)
11. Beasts of the Southern Wild (profound, like New Orleans David Gordon Green)
10. Kill List (the less you know, the better off you are)
9. Rampart (rambling but corrosive)
8. Killer Joe (brutal and brutally funny)
7. Rust and Bone (another masterpiece for Audiard)
6. Oslo August 31 (deeply moving)
5. Looper (best sci fi in years?)
4. Anna Karenina (love how it manipulates time and space, formally ravishing)
3. Moonrise Kingdom (surreally sweet, as usual for Wes)
2. Zero Dark Thirty (a crackling procedural.... Chastain deserves the Oscar)
1. The Master (a towering, oblique masterpiece)

Somewhere up there, my dad's reading that and thinking, now there's a man who knows how to educate a woman.

Yeah Jessica Chastain will win this year. I'm surprised at the response to Django, I thought it was a blast.

Jessica is quite the workhouse it seems. Good choice of roles. And her lips are mighty pouty.

I watched Django at work this past weekend. To be truthful, I didn't know one thing about the movie before pressing play......what a movie! While watching it, I thought to myself how is it I hadn't heard ? ? ?

So - what responses are you referring to?


Hope to watch it again this weekend:

Cabin in the Woods

The last half hour of this film effectively saves it for me, going from "what was all the fuss about?" to, "oh, so that's what all the fuss was about."

just finished part 2 of barry lyndon-- watched part 1 last week

to those who think blu-ray makes no difference---- daaamn it looks amazing

web pictures don't do justice, but i believe stills from this movie ought to be hanged in modern art museums all over the world, as postmodern reconstructions of classic painting


 


 


 



absolutely exquisite. the way kubrick made use of bad actors to fit his style is just genius.
