Two Alfred Hitchcock films via US only Hulu:

Foreign Correspondent

A rather excellent WWII spy film directed by A. Hitchcock. Nominated for 6 Academy awards, won 4.

Notorious

Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. Also directed by Alfred Hitchcock. 2 Academy nominations. 1 win. This was before Bergmans' scandal... having an affair with Roberto Rosellini. America banned her for 7 years before she did Anastasia in 1956.

Both are Criterion collection, so the video is awesome quality.

Today I was watching Lion in Winter with Patrick Stewart and Glenn Close. I don't understand why anyone made this made for TV garbage. Patrick Stewart sure isn't Peter O'Toole and Glenn Close sure as hell isn't Katherine Hepburn.

No Anthony Hopkins.

The 1968 version was perfect. The scripts are almost identical. I think if you are going to remake something, it shouldn't be a clone.

In the 1968 version, only Richard and Louis were gay. In the remake everybody is gay.

The last movie that I saw was Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. I love Johnny Depp so I always make sure that I watch his movies. Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my favorites!

Never Let Me Go! I can't recommend this movie enough. Although slow paced, it is a movie which makes one think. The acting is good, and directed very well. On HBO this month.

Come to think of Russian spy movies... I just watched Salt again. Pretty good if you ignore physics. I guess that's true with most action movies though.

Seabiscuit
On HBO this month. One of my favorite Horse movies. Well acted, well directed and great cinematography. If you love comeback stories, this is for you. And, with time, love and patience almost anything can come around.
Give it a watch.

So far, none of the major horse movies have disappointed me. I've always found them to be a safe bet for a rental. Seabiscuit, Flicka, Hidalgo, Secretariat, Black Beauty, Black Stallian, War Horse, etc. were all pretty good and worth a watch.

Yesterday I went out to see Red Tails (story about Black WWII fighter pilots) with some family members that had made the trip to visit us. It was ok, and a good film for the big screen. It was worth the drive, time, and ticket price to see it at the movie theater, and normally I feel robbed when I go to a theater. Get off your ass and see it. You won't say it was the best movie you ever saw, but you might agree that it was worth it. I don't get out much, but I finally did for this, and it was alright.

The last movie I saw was the one where Hugh Hackman controls a robot for boxing. I honestly forgot about the title.

But unfortunately, I haven't seen Ghost Protocol yet.

No kidding. I don't buy candy and pop anymore. I go out for dinner first. It's about the same money. The ticket price isn't that bad. It's $12 for a coke and popcorn that's a killer. $12 buys pretty good dinner.

I don't feel really burned if I do it that way. Well... not always... sometimes the movie is so bad... The Apprentice with Nicolas Cage was one of those....

I saw Tangled in 3d. This sort of thing probably wouldn't be my normal cup of tea, but it was so beautiful. Terrific eye candy and a gentle story... how could you go wrong?

Umberto D.

An 1952 Italian neorealist movie about a poor old guy and his dog in WWII. Don't read the imdb spoiler. I'd have to say this is one of the best movies I ever watched. Good movies take you to a believable place that you have never been. Great movies provoke an emotional response. This movie does both.

It reminds me a little of Life is Beautiful. You could do worse than either of these for some not so mild drama.

I tried to watch "The truth about Love" with Jennifer Love Hewitt. Netflix. I think the Ghost Whisperer was cute.

When are people going to figure out that you can't fake a British accent? That goes double if you are Jennifer Love Hewitt. 20 minutes..... next...... What was that Stargate chick... err.. Amanda Tapping.... she's doing some scifi thing I might like, but I just can't take the phony British accent....

They sound like a drunk chick pretending to be British. No good could ever come of that. What happens after they start pretending to be British? It's never pretty.

Somehow I have this urge to run now........... RUN! FORREST!

The English Patient. Saw it for the first time last night believe it or not. I didn't know anything about it; didn't even know it was mostly a romance film, but it was alright. I'm usually not at all into romance, but this was done well enough to get me past that.

Some of the 3D effects were good, but the movie was crap. No story, just rush from one fight to another.

Beowulf gets a point for having Rhona Mitra in it. She's hot. Even with Rhona Mitra... 3/10...

Rango...

I usually like this sort of animated thing and Johnny Depp, but this movie has got to be the stupidest thing I ever saw. By 20 minutes, I was completely bored. That's mostly because the first 20 minutes of the movie are simply 99 ways to kill the lizard Rango. It got tedious. As did the mariachi owls, after 5 seconds. The animation is very poor too. It looks like they used 10 year old technology and the art is just ugly.

Rango himself is just ick. And the plot (if you can call it that) isn't any better. Take an iguana, put it in a paint shaker.........

People liked this movie. Were they giving lobotomies away free with your Rango ticket? I'm sure glad I didn't pay to watch this stinker.

I don't even think weed would help.



Felix the Cat -1958 http://bit.ly/IWNohL lol

It's on Netflix too.

last movie i watched was trigun badlands rumble, surprisingly good for a TV -> movie transition even though both were animated, it did have the annoying side effect however of making me wish the TV show wasn't long since over.

Hooked on Borgia. I can't wait for the second season in the fall. I think the only place you can get it is Netflix streaming.

isn't enough. Hella good.

saw "safe" and that new men in black flick, both were decent enough, safe was a pretty typical jason statham flick looking back on it, but pretty enjoyable for what it was, new men in black one was a lot better than i expected but nothing i would have paid to see.

You live out there by Mac. Have you tried Imax 3d? I know they put in an Imax theater at the aviation museum, but haven't been out there to try it.

nah i haven't, i thought the only one is the murdock theater at omsi? had no clue there was one near mac.

either way, i doubt i'd see the point in it, if i really wanted to i could probably figure out a way to watch 3d with VLC and my set of nvidia 3d vision glasses.

As far as I know the OMSI theater only shows educational stuff. It looks like the aviation museum is doing the same right now. They were playing some real movies for a while.

Hmm...

I've been watching Earth 2 on Netflix. Typical 1995 fare. The men are wimpy, whiny and impotent. The women have balls. The toughest character is a 9 year old girl.

I'm getting kind of tired of that plot line. No wonder it got cancelled. All the intrigue of having coffee with a bunch of drama fags at a UC Berkeley Starbucks.

John Carter. Meh... It's not a wonder Disney dropped a bundle. It's the formula blockbuster. Starts out a pretty decent story, then 20 minutes of ARRHG!!! KAPOW! SPLAT by a bunch of long haired scantily clad Irish guys, the girl gets a kiss. Somebody gets a gold cookie. The wookie growls. Fade out.

I found the 12 foot high aliens reminiscent of Jar Jar Binks, although not quite as far fetched. John Carter saves the planet, gets the girl... but we knew that before we started... It's remarkably similar to ERB's original work, but I'm not sure that's an entirely good thing. It's got some Disney comedy that's almost funny. Lynn Collins is pretty cute. Taylor Kitsch seems like a young Johnny Depp on Quaaludes. Willem Defoe as Tars Tarkus. Interesting choice. Not sure it worked. Without his face, DeFoe really might have been anyone.

You should probably spend a buck and get this on Redbox or something. 6/10. Wait for cable?

This movie looks expensive, but $250 million? Disney might break even.. probably not.. It's the franchise Disney was looking for. They were looking for a new Star Wars. I think we can safely say this ain't it.
