    i don't buy that!

    no way theatres are that vunerable to some mass attack in the U.S.! there would have been actionable intelligence if N.K. really went that far to plan something like that...

    He very well could be but not because Sony was hacked and threatened. Not even close.

    Jessabelle. Petrifying horror film. Not as scary as Evil Dead or Grudge though.

    And Winters donated her Oscar (1 of 2 she won) to the AF Museum.
    I've been twice- very harrowing, but well worth the visit.
    Lest we forget.

    Loved Miracle on 34th. Saw it a couple years back. I'd love to watch it again sometime.

    p.s. I hope your seven year old likes it.

    Just saw Gone Girl. Interesting. Sort of reminded me of Basic Instinct.

    What could you not understand ? The ending ? Or the entire story ?

    SPOILERS


    She goes scot-free in the end. But the FBI is on the case, iirc, and there are still clues that can implicate her, or at least make her entire story suspect. Their "arrangement" can't really last very long, her personality will cause her to do something else soon.

    Maybe she'll be caught in Gone Girl - II

    Elf, with will ferrell and james caan.
    Saw it after dinner last night here at the house with some aunts and uncles who had not seen it... and some young ones who had seen it many times.

    Lots of laughs from all ages.

    Mele kalikimaka, everyone. God bless....

    Saw the original Die Hard. That movie started a whole genre of action films that were pitched by the makers to the studios as "Die Hard in ...." and the ... ended up being ships, planes, submarines, arenas etc...

    I remember watching some other movie in 1988 when a trailer for Die Hard came on. After it was done, everyone in the theater started laughing because up until then, Bruce Willis had been an actor on Moonlighting which was a comedy show and people didn't believe he could pull off an action movie.

    Just saw The Artist, and quite liked it. A nice homage to film-history and the silent era.

    Read the novel; an interesting device to make the twist and some good paranoia, but found it a little flat overall. Would you say the film is worth watching if one already knows the plot?

    I just saw the "Interview". pretty good for the comedy. I would give it about 68% in Tomatoe meter.
    Some good funny parts and some parts that didn't work. but overall, I would pay$5.99 for the rent. it is Worth it.

    and it never hurts to have some hot babes in the movie too............LOL

    The Interview. I guess I only watched it because of all the problems surrounding it. Overall it was funny although a lot of the humor was pretty raunchy. The plot was far fetched (but it is a comedy) as the CIA would never recruit a talk show host and his producer to assassinate a world leader. Especially given their wild heavy partying lifestyle.

    Not to give anything away, but I did get a kick out of the fact James Franco kills Kim Jung Un and escapes in pretty much the same far fetched fashion he tells the CIA he wants to do it....rather than the planned ricin poisoning he is supposed to carry out.

    James Franco is playing basketball with Kim in one scene and I thought "this might have been better if they had a fictitious basketball player based on Rodman there to whack him."

    Witherspoon has issues. She decides to take a 3 month hike up the west coast. How these two facts relate isn't always clear but that just leaves more room for your own interpretation. Worth seeing.

    Started seeing Secondhand Lions and i am enjoying it.

    I loved it. Reminded me of Singin in the Rain which had roughly the same plot of silent to talkies, iirc. Also, the French actor reminded me so much of Gene Kelly.

    Finally saw most but not all of "Silver Linings Playbook". Much new-earned respect for Bradley Cooper after seeing it. Will look forward to "American Sniper" as a result. Underwhelmed by Jennifer Lawrence...she was OK in it but an Oscar??? Naomi Watts should have won for "The Impossible".

    Yes, it's a lovely movie. I think it mixed absurd humor with some seriousness in a quite unique way. And agree that Bradley Cooper surprised; I didn't know he had that in him before I saw that one. I thought Lawrence was very good as well though, but an Oscar might perhaps have been a bit much, yes.

    The Bank Job - 2008 - Jason Statham. Based on the 1971 Baker Street robbery. Interesting.



    The Color Purple - 1985 - Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey and even a tiny role for Laurence Fishburne (credited as Larry).

    The Getaway is fantastic. McQueen Is my favorite actor. I had a poster of McQueen on my wall as a child. I was 4 years old when he died and I still remember my Dad telling me. One of my earliest memories. Getaway is probably my favorite McQueen film. That film is about as cool as it gets. The only thing I remember being close was Payback with Mel Gibson...my other favorite actor.

    Odd Thomas - A good horror movie with elements of comedy in it. Never heard of it, before I watched it with some family. Quite surprised.

    Heaven's Gate. Brilliant. If anything it needs to be longer. Add an extra hour in the right places and it could be the greatest film ever made.

    Enjoyed it a lot. The kid is amazing too. Reminded me a lot of Forrest Gump.

    Thanks a lot, all of you who recommended it.

    Oh, by the way, I saw The Piano a month back. Enjoyed it greatly. Holly Hunter, Sam Neill, Anna Paquin.

    Excellent, touching film about defeating ignorance and racism in the military. De Niro played the bigotted drill commander who wisens up perfectly.

    Did you see the director's cut of Sling Blade? It's like 2 and a half hours and the only version I've seen. I wouldn't want anything cut out...
