Frozen - Much better than Tangled IMO, the animation was dazzling and the two leads were beautiful.

Friday - A laugh riot, Chris Tucker pre-Rush Hour fame was still the highlight of the film much like The Fifth Element.

Die Hard - Pretty much the only entry in the franchise worth watching IMO, the action never stops being exciting and Alan Rickman pre-Snape with his fancy suit, haircut and German accent make for a fun and menacing villain.

Saving Mr. Banks looks absolutely gagworthy.

Last night I saw The Wolf of Wall Street. If you feel like seeing The Wolf of Wall Street, consider the following alternative:
1) Rewatch Goodfellas.
2) Pretend that instead of Italian mafiosi, everyone is a crooked Wall Street stockbroker.
3) Congratulations! You've just saved an hour, a ticket fee, and a whole lot of tedium.

I thought The Wolf of Ball Street was one of the better films of the year. It's got the Goodfellas vibe, Leo ballin' mad vagazzle and having fun with a candle, and the most hilarious drug trip in the history of ever.

It's a worthy Scorsese film, though Goodfellas will (and should) rightly go down as the better film.

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

Infernal Affairs - I'll be honest, I never saw The Departed before seeing this but overall this is a well crafted thriller in my book. I was confused at first as to which mole was which but the movie does a good job at putting all fears of not following well the story to rest. My only complaint would be the downer of an ending it goes out on but they made a trilogy out of this so I guess I should check that out.

I've started the Zatoichi films series and have gotten through six of them so far. Here's how I'd rank them in descending order:

The Tale of Zatoichi
Zatoichi the Fugitive
New Tale of Zatoichi
Zatoichi on the Road
Zatoichi and the Chest of Gold
The Tale of Zatoichi Continues

I've also seen The Searchers, which was good but not as good as everyone makes it out to be, and Tokyo Story, which was amazing but I still like Late Spring better.

Videodrome. I don't know what to make of it. At least I got to see Debbie Harry naked.

Rocky III - Literally watched it three times in a row. It's THAT good to be worthy of being my all time favorite of the Rocky saga.

Watched Braveheart with my dad on New Year's. Somehow having missed the fact that it was directed by Mel Gibson, I was not adequately prepared for the overload of kitsch in this film. There is not an ironic or self-aware bone in its body. Which is kind of charming, in a way. It's a very (very) dumb movie, but it's an entertaining one and I'd watch it again (especially with some riffing partners).

Mel Gibson's Fabio hair never stops being distracting/funny.

I also saw it cited on a list of "The 10 Most Historically Inaccurate Modern Films", which included no less than three movies directed by and/or starring Mel Gibson, and one (Pearl Harbor) from Braveheart's screenwriter. So, lol.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug -- I thought the fight scene along the rapids was fucking awesome and fluid, lots of transitions and split-second feints and counterstrokes.

The sad thing about this was that I had a teacher in high school who showed us Braveheart because we were studying...something or other. Possibly Middle Ages Scotland, or kilts.

In other news; Finally got around to watching the 1979 coming of age film Breaking Away. It's basically about four guys from Bloomington, Indiana who graduate high school and don't know what to do with their lives. One of them aspires to be an Italian bicyclist.
It was pretty great, relatable, funny, etc. But the ending was a little cliche. That's what you get from a coming of age story. [/i]
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!
