Megan Is Missing (2011) 7/10

Terrifying and disturbing. I wish, I can elaborate.

Loved it.

West of Memphis - 8.5/10

I knew of the case somewhat from doing random research, but this really opened it up to me. My only "issue" was the length, but that may have been because it was 3am when I started it, and I hate pausing a movie.. I'll for sure watch this one again.

Speaking of, look up Lena Olin and Juliette Binoche in The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Thank me later people.

Not to mention Daniel Day-Lewis. It's a fine film that has worn very well.

A little OT, but it's pretty neat how the son of a British Poet Laureate married the daughter of Arthur Miller.

Back to back posts.

I'm only 30 mins into The Master and I'm wondering how in the hell Paul Thomas Anderson did not receive an Oscar nomination for Best Director. It's a damn shame.

I think what happened with The Master was that people completely expected it to be one thing (an examination of Scientology), and it ended up being this bizarre film that appears to be about nothing, but contains so much. I think it's brilliant, but it seems it confounded people too much.

So keep trying to figure out how PTA didn't receive a director nomination. Then try to figure out why he didn't receive a screenplay nomination. Then try to figure out why it didn't receive a cinematography nomination. Then try to figure out why it didn't receive a nomination for its score. Then try to figure out why Phoenix and Hoffman aren't the favorites to win in their individual categories.

I can explain why Phoenix isn't the favourite, but that has nothing to do with his performance in the movie.

Streets of legend

6/10

One of the best lowbudget and street racing movies I have seen.

10/10 ? Yes, I really loved it for my own reasons. And yes, hated the lead b**ch. Reminded me of Linda Fiorentino.

And those who got sucked in gasped at the horror, if you know what I mean.
Can't wait to see it.

Ah, nothing quite like casual, dingbat sexism to make a point.

The Queen of Versailles - 8/10

Was expecting this documentary to be sort of a "Real Housewives of..." knock-off and it certainly starts out that way - but damn, it gets pretty good halfway through as they have to deal (or not deal) with the financial crisis of 2008. I didn't really know the Siegel story and the building of the largest home in America, etc. so it was all new to me.

Pretty interesting - but disturbing.

Good Day to Die Hard - 7/10

..... not much to say, really. Just humorous, stupid action fun. Not nearly as bloody or as good as it could've been, got very repetitive at times and the baddies were acting more idiotic in several gunfights than any NPC in any FPS, I think Bruce Willis honestly forgot his lines a few times and kept repeating the same non-swear on numerous occasions, and had a lot of moments that just dragged on, but it was fun.

Don't expect an all-time great, just expect to have a decent to good time.

Hamlet (1948)

The 2nd instalment Laurence Oliviers Shakespeare trilogy. This is my first direct experience with Hamlet, at least that I remember, so I don't have any prejudges against it for not being on stage or for any possible omissions or changes made for the screen. I really liked this film, my biggest complaint is that the language is hard to follow from time to time as a person with English as a 2nd language and no subtitles. Fortunately it wasn't a problem to follow the narrative. Laurence Olivier has a reputation for being one of the very best actors of all time, for obvious reasons I have never seen him on stage, and I have a limited experience with him in film (The Boys From Brazil and Henry V), but I like what I have seen already. But I found him to out of this world as Hamlet, his delivery and presence is simply out of this world.

A History of Violence 7/10
-Very slow, sometimes awkward. Didn't like the way everything was resolved. Just ended. Weird.
