    Just watched Muppets Most Wanted with my wife and 2 grown children. Nice that the kids were with us tonight and we all enjoyed the film.

    Sheesh, I'd never have thought that Jodie Foster had more sense than Hopkins when it came to staying away from really bad sequels. Neither of us could get all the way through this one and Mrs DC has a super-high tolerance for stuff like that.
  8. Watched Shooter the other night on Netflix. It's ok; I had read the book it's based on 20yrs ago. The book is fantastic.

    Come Back to Me - on Netflix streaming, a pretty good thriller refreshingly different from "found footage" or "Saw"/"Hostile" type films.

    THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY - Gorgeous-looking and hunger-making. Perhaps a tiny bit too long, but still good.
    THE PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR - Funny animated spy/action movie.
    GUTSHOT STRAIGHT - OK neo noir film.
    SHOOT FIRST..DIE LATER - Good 70s Italian crime thriller.

    Boring , a movie where nothing happens for almost 3 hours.
    All these professional reviewers must have been corrupt.

    'Enemy', starring Jake Gyllenhaal

    Incredibly awesome; five stars - I'm kicking myself for missing out on this when it played in theatres.

    Sound City. Thought I was going to hate it but 75% of it was great. Too much sucking up to Macca in the last 15 minutes, though.

    'The Passion of Joan of Arc' (1928) with live piano accompaniment. One of the greatest of all-time in my book.

    Draft Day

    This might sound odd but the biggest thing I took away from this movie was how utterly fantastic Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City looked from the overhead shot they used. I have no idea if they colorized it to make the red pop out but it looked amazing!

    Movie was okay I guess. They tried to lose me right from the start with Chris Berman. I hate Chris Berman; the kind of loudmouth you'd leave a room to avoid listening to.

    And again this may be odd, but real life people from media to NFL commissioner Roger Goddell don't make the movie more believable to me. At one point near the end they say there's no way Denver is going to take a quarterback because they have Joe Blow already; why don't they just say Peyton Manning since they're already trying to sell me real people and real teams and neither the Denver franchise nor Manning himself are needed beyond a mere mention?

    And they work so hard to try to make it real then you have the main character's mother, who was married to a lifelong football man, insisting that her son performs some funeralesque ritual hours before the NFL draft?? Nobody is buying that. Widow/Mom would understand that today isn't the day for that!

    I went to see Boyhood in the theater with my Dad.
    I was disappointed with the middle section - and the end lacked the punch I was expecting.
    Because he does mushrooms and watches the vista all is well??
    It's not an awful movie, by any stretch. Just not up to the hype

    The Babadook. Australian horror movie. I found the first half hour pretty creepy but it just became a standard modern horror movie after that. Disappointing. Entertainment Weekly gave it a B+. I give it a C.
