    Wow, I'm thoroughly impressed by Mickey Rooney's taste in women. :D

    Didn't even know he and Ava were an item. What a babe!

    "eat, drink & kill Mary." Awesome. ;)

    Eat, Pray and Love was a relaxing movie starring Julia Roberts, Javier Bardem, et al. Since I've never been to Indonesia, it's kind of a substitute for me...

    Mr. Holmes, about Sherlock Holmes in his old age. I didn't see the point.

    I want to see "The Walk", but I think I've missed it. Did anyone see it?

    "Spectre"
    No narrative here whatsoever, just the usual things blowing up and going fast. A bit of a bore, really.

    Bridge of Spies - My favorite film of the year

    Just saw Spectre. I honestly have no idea what I felt about it. I came out with no feeling at all. That being said I think this is Daniel Craig's best performance as Bond.

    Spectre sounds like I've seen it before but I still want to catch it on the big screen before DVD.

    Spotlight is tops on my must-see list. From the reviews, it is odds-on favorite for the Oscar and has a great ensemble cast (Keaton, Schreiber, McAdams, Ruffalo, Slattery, Tucci, D'arcy James and more). The true story of uncovering the Boston Archdiocese sex scandal is compelling stuff.

    Psychological thriller. Interesting.

    I rewatched Gone Girl last night (recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it + the book is good)

    Dat box-cutter scene still gets me, never gets old

    Wonderful movie for any dog lover, or anyone who can appreciate a story about life-long loyalty.

    This is a tough movie to watch. Extremely good, though. Very good music as well.

    Delicacy (2011) starring Audrey Tatou (Amelie Poulin, De Vinci Code) love story which evokes pathos, non-cliched.

    Spectre, best bond movie since Casino Royale (not Niven's!).

    "Heart of a Dog"

    Very personal and abstract "documentary" written, produced, directed and largely filmed by Lou Reed's widow, about a variety of things that seem to matter to her. Rambling and incoherent at times, mercifully only 75 minutes. One guy mumbled loudly as the theater emptied "it's the first time I wanted to shoot myself during a movie."

    Yesterday was the day of tough movies. First Hachi and then TDH. Diffrent kind of sadness, but ultimately very tough.

    I think it takes more time to appreciate the masterpiece that TDH is. I'm still kinda analizing it.

    The Gambler… Hated it.

    There is some tennis as part of the story, but let's just say they took a generous portion of artistic license in portraying a player and a hitting session between himself and a 60+ year old woman. I mean c'mon, the guy was 3.5 at best. o_O

    That was LeeDF. Sureshs played the old woman, and he had to lower his NRTP considerably (as well as his cup size) to make the role believable. :p

    One of Jake's best performances (maybe even the best) and the script was strong from Gilroy. Cinematography was top notch for this arthouse film. Only minor hiccup I had with this film was I'd like to have known why Bloom was a sociopath (depends how you view Bloom but that's how I viewed him, not necessarily an antagonist or a villain), why he lacked such empathy towards everyone around him, that part of the character itself was never fleshed out, maybe he was too obsessed with capitalism and business which ended up in him becoming like that, but that's just a guess.

    Anyway, great film.

    Not bad. We enjoyed it. It never got boring.

    In fact, the first sequence in Mexico City is fantastic. Then the sequences in Rome showing a funeral and then secret societies assembling in ancient palaces were great. The references to government surveillance were very timely.

    Just go watch it. You will love the 3 women in the movie.

    The palace where the secret society meets was actually shot at Blenheim palace in the UK. If I had one complaint about the movie it would be that the locations were similar to the recent Mission Imposible movie (Blenheim Palace, Tangier etc).

    The scene in Mexico City however is worth the price of the cinema ticket alone.

    In short, ''soft power'' is the subliminal message just as it was with Skyfall!
