My pessimism about seeing this was huge. Every single preview I had seen made it look like warmed-up crap and something I really didn't want to see at all. Then, upon realising that it was about to leave 3D cinemas - to make room for Alice in Wonderland - and the Oscars were looming I finally reckoned it was time to relent and reverse my position, if only to try and find out what all the worldwide fuss was about and why so many people seem to feel they need to see it over and over again. I'll admit it exceeded my expectations. The story is utter clichιd pants - as if written by a student of the George Lucas Shit Script Academy - but the impressive and pretty visuals succesfully draw you in and totally immerse you in the whole experience. However, during the initial battle scenes (I don't think that's a spoiler is it?) I did think of a whole new title for this movie... "Team America: Other Worlds Police"

1. A Boy Named Charlie Brown- "Owning 10% of Charlie Brown is like owning 10% of nothing!"
2. Crazy Love- Documentary about a guy who threw acid on a former girlfriend's face, blinding her.  Pretty interesting.
3. Wristcutters: A Love Story- Quirky little story.  Liked it a lot.  
4. District 9- Liked this a lot.  Pretty different.
5. The Maiden Heist- Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken and William H. Macy.  Very cool quirky indie-type film.  Don't know if this just got a limited release or we just weren't paying attention, but this was really good.
6. Julie & Julia-  LOVED the Julia stuff, didn't care one way or the other about the Julie stuff.  Meryl Streep really can do anything.  
7. The Rare Breed- Jimmy Stewart, Maureen O'Hara, and Juliet Mills.  Brian Keith plays what has to be one of the inspirations for Groundskeeper Willie
8. Cover Girl- Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelly.  Pretty cute, if predictable.  Phil Silvers and Gene made the movie.  Rita was just the pretty face.
9. Big Fan- Um...good, but creepy. Sports Obsession taken to the extreme. Patton Oswalt was really good in this.  
10. Zigfield Follies-  You have let me down Turner Classic Movies!  Let me down!  Somehow hearing that William Powell was "playing" Zigfield made me think that this was a movie about the follies, not a bunch of folly skits....sketches...whatever.  They were okay and all, especially the Astaire/Kelly number, but not what I was in the mood for.  Guess there OTHER movie where William Powell plays Zigfield is the movie about the follies.  
11. Moon.  This was good.  Really well acted, liked the Compy played by Kevin Spacey and a smiley face quite a bit.  Skip the short film that's also on the DVD though.  It's not super short, and not that good.  No idea the director was David Bowie's son til I IMDB'd it later
12. Taking Woodstock- I liked it.  Freaking loved Liev Schriber.  
13. Roman Holiday- TCM on Demand.  Very good.  Kept wondering who the friend was.  Looked him up, he's the guy from Green Acres!  Gregory Peck was awesome.  Audrey Hepburn was awesome.  Pretty much made me want to run away and play around for a whole day.
14. Pinky- TCM on Demand again.  Part of Black History Month.  Man, racism sucks.
15. Pop Star on Ice- Johnny Weir's documentary.  Really interesting.  I guess Sundance aired it as a precursor to his reality show.  I think that Johnny really got judged at the olympics based on his off-ice antics as equally as his performance. It's funny, at one point Johnny's mom is comparing Johnny and Lysacek and she's talking about how Johnny is more artist, and Lysacek is more athlete, and that's the same complaint that Plushenko had with the Olympics, that he was the athlete and Lysacek was the artist. 
16. Full Grown Men-  We watched it for Judah Friedlander and Amy Sedaris.  Amy was in it for approximately 3 minutes, and Judah couldn't save it from the annoying twit of a lead.  I didn't like this at all.

4. District 9
5. The Maiden Heist
6. Julie and Julia
7. Big Fan
8. Moon
9. Taking Woodstock - I enjoyed this one very much.  I wasn't sure how Dimitri Martin was going to do as a serious actor but he really delivered, I hope he gets more roles.

10. Pop Star on Ice - Pretty much just made me hate Johnny Weir.  I wouldn't give the little diva a medal either.

11. Full Grown Men - The wife didn't like it, and I can understand why.  I don't know what I thought of it.  The lead was a twit because that was the character he was playing, and he actually played it pretty well, you were supposed to dislike him.  I guess I identified with it because I've known a few guys like that in my time, always using and abusing someone even less secure than themselves.  I really enjoyed Judah, again not someone I would expect to do well in a non-comedic role, if that fits.  The character WAS funny, but he was playing someone other than Judah Friedlander I guess, which is far different than anything else I've seen him do.  I give it some credit, it was well made and the story was interesting.  Unfortunately the lead was far too unlikable, even if that was the point.

13. The Damned United - I love Michael Sheen... I didn't think I'd be interested due to the subject matter, but this character study was fascinating. Timothy Spall was great too. Not so much a sports movie as it is a movie about obsession.

Wow, WHAT a powerful documentary this turned out to be. To be honest I'd never even heard of it before it won an Oscar (for best Documentary feature) at last Sunday's Academy Awards, and was surprised when our local library had it in stock and immediately available to take home with me. It mixes outrage and covert activities into a mind-blowing true story about how thousands of dolphins are routinely culled - for a reason that somehow defies logic - in a cove near Taiji in Japan. In the process we get to learn about the utter hypocrisy of the International Whaling Commission and how it is being used as little more than as a governmental pawn for the Japanese fishing industry. The activists, in what becomes a massive game of cat & mouse with Taiji's fisherman and police force, manage to secretly install video cameras disguised as rocks around the cove and film the horror for the whole world to see. Utterly captivating, maddening and heartbreaking in equal measures. Recommended 100%.

Visually this Levinson movie has always been top notch for me. It's as colourful and beautiful as they come. It's a shame he couldn't have squeezed out better performances - or even better actors - to play the lead roles, and not have succumbed to certain elements which stick this film squarely in the 80's. It could/should have been timeless.
