I obviously watch a lot of films so I'm not going to list them all, but just the ones that stuck out.
- Excellent film. It really had me rolling. The film doesn't try to be funny but instead lets the main character's delusions carry it. I'm not the first person to say it, but it's so true: you have to play comedy straight or it's not funny (see: Will Ferrel).
It's available on Netflix watch instant so I'd go for it if you've got the time.
- Just saw this yesterday, and Sean really had to twist my arm (no pun intended) to get me to watch it because of that infamous scene. Ok folks, the scene is not disgusting, it's not gory, and it's really short, and after spending all that time with the character, it makes perfect sense. In fact, I found myself telling James Franco to just cut it off and get out of there already several times.
The Kings Speech
- One of my favorite films this year. I can't decide who I'll be rooting for for best picture (this or Social Network, which I think is most likely to win). It's just a spectacularly made film that manages to be touching and deep without getting dark, dreary or melodramatic. I like the elements of humor throughout and the way it never felt like you were laughing at Berty's expense, which would have cheapened it.
hmm, I can't remember what else I've seen recently.... so I guess that's it for now
