My god, I haven't seen a film with such a constant atmosphere of dread since The Shining. I really loved it.

"Surprise is an insubstantial blade, a sword worthless in war. It breaks when troops rally, it snaps when commanders hold the line, but fear never fades. So let the enemy know we come, let their fears defeat them as everything falls dark, as the worlds sun sets, as the city is wreathed in its final night. Let ten thousand howls promise ten thousand claws. The Night Lords are coming, and no soul that stands against us shall see another dawn"

I rewatched Hugo recently. Damn, what a great film. It's basically Scorsese's Cinema Paradiso. Entertaining performances from Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Shinji Ikari wannabe, Asa Butterfield.

What a beautiful film to look at and experience.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I've decided if life should ever lead me back to teaching a class of high school kids film I would start the course with that movie. Hugo is just a complete delight. Also one of the only movies to properly get 3D. Sooooo of course it was a financial failure. Such is life.

Went on a date to see Thor 3: Not As Thorgettable as Thor 1 & Thor 2. It's a great date movie. Lots of laughs. Cate Blanchett is having a blast slinking it up as a badguy (and as per usual in Marvel her talent is what makes the character work because the writers forgot to give her a character) & the movie not taking itself seriously helps. Won't remember anything about it when we get to Avengers: We Put Infinity In The Title Cause We're Never Ending next May but not a bad two hours.

I'll probably remember Thor 3: the Thornering almost as much as a fuzzily remember Captain America 3: Hydra Within (which isn't much, but still more than any other Avengers film out there). Props to being the only Thor movie that actually seems to understand certain aspects of Norse mythology, instead of just pretending to be Shakespeare.
