Went and saw Cabin in the Woods tonight. SO good. Seriously. Go see it.
It's still playing near you? Hasn't been around here in a while.

Loved it, and I can't wait for it to come out on BluRay.

It was at the cheap theater, and last night it was only a dollar per ticket. WELL worth it.

Yeah, it's still at the discount theater near my house. My brother took his girlfriend the other night to see it (she hadn't watched it yet), and she loved it. Which is good; means she's a keeper.

There used to be a $1.50 theater in Dover that would play old movies sometimes,I wish it was still there.

John Carter of Mars

Maybe its because I know nothing of the books, but I really enjoyed it.  I came in not expecting much.  Just don't understand all the bad reviews of it.  The lead is likable, and smokin' hot.  Like the fact that its set in the 1800s.  And the special effects are cool.

This is one of those rare occasions where the most enthusiastic fans of this are people who love the books, but it's nice to see it appeal to those who've nto read them. Idf you liked this, do go and read the first few at least, the film got their spirit pretty dead on. :)

Yeah, I've never read any of the books and went into the movie not sure what to expect. I loved it.

I'm not sure I can really put my finger on why I was so "meh" on the movie.
  I do know that part of it was the human civilizations on Mars that I am supposed to care about. Um...no, fuck humans, this is Mars goddamnit!
  Also, the (non-titular) Princess was the primary reason there were so many problems. That being said, even if she had married him the bad guy still would have caused trouble. But really, she kept talking about "sacrificing everything for her people" and then didn't do that.

In Bruges
I wish I hadn't taken so long to see this.  It really was great.  I'm not a fan of Colin Farrell, but he didn't bother me at all.

The Gold Rush. It's classic Chaplin. I watched the silent version, as opposed to the cut Chaplin did in the 40's where he added narration and some dialog.

So Chaplin was the George Lucas of the silent era?

I can just see the Gold Rush fanboys complaining about this in their soda shops.

And, like Lucas, he made sure the original wasn't easily available after releasing the new version, it was decades before the silent one could actually be seen.

But it's been available for the past 10 years. It was released on DVD in The Chaplin Collection (though it's on the special features disc) and it's on the new Criterion release.

That one's actually the one that was touring the country recently it combines the score from the later version with the restored silent print. Chaplin was a fairly decent composer.

I just got sad because I realized years from now this will be known as "The 2D era".

Kings of Pastry - A Pennebaker/Hegudus documentary about the pastry competition to win the title of Un des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France.  MOF for short.  It means you are the one of the best craftsmen in France and it's one of their most prestigious titles.  This one just happens to be about dessert.  It's a very quiet and subdued affair.  The chefs are low key, go about their business in a no nonsense manner and avoid the histrionics so common in American cooking shows.  And it's utterly compelling.     This is serious business.  It isn't about selling yourself.  And while the goal is to achieve perfection, it isn't such bad a thing if you don't.  Devoting yourself to the goal is enough for some of the chefs.  There's a very zen quality to it.  Yes, the French take themselves a little too seriously but you don't really get that too much with this documentary.

Hatfields & McCoys - The History Channel mini-series about the famous feuding families.  Kevin Reynolds of Kevin Costner fame is actually well suited for a tv mini-series.  His bland and uninspired direction doesn't seem so bad on the small screen.
