One of Nic Cage's shining moments is The Weatherman. Plain and simple. FACT.

Somehow I knew that 'her high waisted pants' was an existing search term.

I'm a big Spike Jones fan too. The collaboration of Director, DP, and Production Designer on Her is just about the finest I think I have seen since before 70s realism. Glad we are getting back to more exploratory looks now. Music video directors have always had that playground so they are a nice addition to Hollywood films.

I know alot of people hate Tarsem, but the look The Fall is exquisite, unfortunately the story trips over the look a few times, but it is pretty minor. All in all, a really nice film too. I have enjoyed it numerous times.

Has anyone seen Bellflower? Indie from a new director a couple of years ago. He makes his own cameras, built the car in the film with the flame throwers. It is super low budget, but he does some very cool stuff with the little budget he has. He kind of throws continuity out the window in exchange for anything that serves the story like some crazy exposure and depth of field settings. Everyone says "continuity is for pussies," but most directors are addicted to it as if it is the metric of directing. I look forward to what he can do with some money. It is a bad relationship revenge fantasy movie, but it is clever. And anything that doesn't actually need to be clever is dead simple, pretty rare from a young director. It is worth a look, but warning, it is kind of harsh.

Bad Lieutenant Port of Call New Orleans surprised me quite a bit. Very good for a Cage movie

So, this is probably old news, but I just saw that Michael Douglas is playing Hank Pym, so they're are obviously including a passing of the torch plotline.


Also, with the announcement of further details about the Dr. Strange movie upcoming, what are people's thoughts and feelings about Marvel announcing not only will his movie not be an origin story, but that they are not doing origin stories for movies going forward?

Seems a bit ballsy...

It is a bit ballsy. And I'm very genuinely curious as to what they're building towards.

Finally saw The Expendables.

Terrible movie which was only mildly interesting for the plane scene and Terry Crews blowing the shit out of everyone with his shotgun.

Now to watch Expendables II and decide if I really want to go see the III tomorrow. :-)

Rented some movies last weekend:

RoboCop - ignoring the original and taking the movie on its own merit resulted in a pile of "meh". Nothing really happens and I found myself really not caring about any of the characters.

Divergent - it was an okay movie but I suspect it would have made more sense if one reads the book first. The movie that is its most obvious comparison - The Hunger Games - was a superior movie.

47 Ronin - I quite liked this movie despite its most obvious flaw (Keanu). It's a nice looking film with some nice fight scenes. If they had cast someone more believable as the Japanese half breed, it would have been better.

It just came out a week ago.

Expendables II was slightly more interesting. God these films suck, though. Their only redeeming factor is 80s action stars being hilariously cheeseball.

And for that reason alone, tomorrow I will see III.

I meant that an HD copy of the movie leaked out quite some time ago.

I took my son to go see this when it was playing in theaters. We really enjoyed it. My son was stunned when it was over. He didn't realize that we had been sitting there so long. That's pretty good for a 15 year old that isn't really into the genre all that much. In fact he has gotten more into (somewhat) similar stuff since watching that movie. I would have loved almost any other major or minor actor playing Keanu Reeves' part, but they limited his role enough to get over it.
