Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom
The Good The Bad And The Ugly
The Hobbit Battle of 5 Armies.
Best of the lot.
That said I didn't like the 1st 2 very much.
Saw it at the renovated Cinerama in Seattle.
The laser project is fantastic.
Took my daughter to see Big Hero 6 this afternoon. Well worth your time! We usually have daddy/daughter movie day out once a month or so.
One of Mrs DC's must watch xmas films. It's probably pretty good, and looks pretty cute on many levels, but I have such a strong dislike for morons like Will Farrell that it spoils the film for me.
Die Hard With A Vengeance
hysterical and we even get Zooey singing!
The Polar Express. It was an okay film, but the CGI animation was kind of creepy. The characters looked very unnatural.
This Is Where I Leave You
I'm not sure why, but I have only appreciated Jason Bateman's work the past 5 years or so - I was oblivious to Arrested Development. Serious or funny, this guy just never seems to disappoint.
Hyde Park on the Hudson, rented it to show my 88 year old mother.
Found it slower the second time around, but it really seemed to capture the personalities of Franklin, Eleanor, and Sara.
Rented Draftday. Much better than I thought it would be.
The Skeleton Twins
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The first was a great little drama the second was distracting.
Into The Woods. Not much of a musical fan but this one was enjoyable, with a few laughs.
Frozen-- Xmas night. A lot of fun, haven't enjoyed a Disney like this in many years.
I just watched two- The Grand Budapest Hotel and Inside Llewyn Davis. Both were marvellous and funnily enough F Murray Abraham from Amadeus appeared in both of them.
"The Green Lantern" - I was leery of it, but I got the blu-ray for cheap. I wasn't expecting much, but I kinda liked it!
Wife and I saw The Imitation Game yesterday. Really good movie but not as good as it thinks it is. If you see it, I think you'll understand what I mean. Too many "big" emotional contrivances.
The Dark Knight. The start and the ending are amazing but I noticed a bit of sag towards the middle. Heath totally deserved the Oscar.
The last of the Hobbitt. I liked it overall, but it was too long and the battle was so padded out, it was silly.
The scene with Lee and Blanchett was the highlight for me.
ah yes, how to make hard boiled eggs into a creepy food item..........
Guardians of the Galaxy
Mrs DC absolutely loved it. I expected to at least enjoy it but it just didn't do anything for me. Maybe just a case of the wrong pick for the mood.
Inherent Vice: Best film I've seen in 2 years and even the Tits were era correct (such dedication to the craft)
