Strange, beautiful & disturbing

English Manners — 1 day ago

WORTH CONSUMING!

A perfectly observed comedy of manners. The subject is suburbia – a newfangled development and its liminal underpinnings.

WORTH CONSUMING!

The stars make it worth seeing, but it only borrows the title of the book. Interesting plot with the same heavy-handed moralistic overtones, but lacking all the wit of the original.

A story about "Inside Llewyn Davis" — 2 days ago

WORTH CONSUMING!

Isaac makes a wholly believable Davis, spiralling out of control as his hopes of a folk-singing career are dashed at every turn. But most of the problems he has are brought on by his own inability to connect with people, from his friends and his sister to his nursing-home-confined father and even his audiences. As counterpoint, we see other folk singers on the rise. It’s a cautionary tale, to be sure, thoughtfully presented.

A story about "Barfi! (Hindi Movie / Bollywood Film / Indian Cinema DVD) (2012)" — 2 days ago

WORTH CONSUMING!

Wow! Precious story, beautifully filmed. Needed a quick sub plan for speech class and thought, “Well, it’s got a lot of interpersonal communication”—huge hit with 17-18 year old students, and they’re pretty harsh film critics. Lots of flash-backs and forwards. I had a hard time following the plot the first time, but well worth the viewer’s effort. Would also be good for a film class—several overt references to classic comedy.

A story about "The Day the Earth Stood Still (Two-Disc Widescreen Edition)" — 6 days ago

WORTH CONSUMING!

As remakes go, it was okay. Certainly not the impact of the original, but times have changed and so has our view of the universe. Reeves was a good choice to reprise Michael Rennie’s role as Klaatu – kind of stone-faced, emotionless acting. Connelly upstaged him as Dr. Helen Benson, as did Bates as the Secretary of Defense. Cleese has a small but important professorial role in explaining the nature of human nature. Not terrible.

The minions definitely need their own movie.
