Coco-Chanel-Igor-Stravinsky-5-550x365

What a shame. This could have been great. When you watch the “making of” and hear what the filmmaker’s intent was, it’s like, “wow! If only that was actually in the movie!”

What’s there isn’t bad. It is beautiful, first of all, and it is interesting, only because the time period is fascinating, the making of perfume is fascinating (to me) and The Rite of Spring is among the most kick-ass pieces of music ever. Sadly, I never got under the characters’ skin. Not once.

But it looks fabulous. Worth checking out, for the most part. (Though some prior knowledge of CC & IS is recommended.)

A really well made, completely unoriginal film.

My full review (including video) is on UGO.

Supes&Bats2

Not the greatest DC Animated Original Movie, (the list ranking is here) but fun because SOOOO many unexpected characters show up. Who amuses me more, Power Girl or Gorilla Grodd?

Superman/Batman: Supergirl

Read this in anticipation of hosting the LA premiere of the DC Animated Original Movie version. I enjoyed it. A bunch of Amazons fight robots, then they take a wormhole to a Hellish planet and it ends with all of our friends there. It’s very sweet, in that way.

I still don’t quite understand most of the characters’ motivation, but I did enjoy myself.

Really close to being good.

The New World (Extended Cut) (2005/2008), Terrence Malick, A

Don’t ask me to pinpoint what is new about this second cut, close to 40 minutes longer. It feels like the same movie, except now you definitely need to pause for a bathroom break.

I still love it and Ann does, too.

Machete (2010), Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis, B+

I didn’t like it as much as I did the first time.

“Did you do any fornicating?” Oh, that wacky Nixon!

The Damned United (2009), Tom Hooper, B

Any movie with Colm Meany as a bad guy already has a strike against it.

This movie is very well shot and well acted, but the minute it is over you think – my God, this is about intra-British soccer. . . from 30 years ago! Who cares?

It wants to be Amadeus, but the gravity just isn’t there. And it may be the least colorful film about working class Brits I’ve ever seen.

Still, Michael Sheen is (as always) fantastic. Worth seeing for him alone.

The American (2010), Anton Corbijn, C+

I wanted to like this. And I kinda did. But, also, in a more truthful way, I did not. It’s no Limits of Control.
