Hey now! I kinda really liked this one. I mean, it wasn't revolutionary or anything, but there were plenty of good jokes, it was cute, and they didn't try to outdo themselves like they did on part 3. It was witty and creative, but still a small little story. Although I do have issues with Hollywood trying to tell me that a boring, repetitive, work-a-day family style is what we should all strive for. I'm not even there and I already hate when they tell me that this is the best I'll ever have. But whatev.

I saw it in 2D. I don't know that 3D would have been that amazing.

This was a nice little review, and then we careened headlong into psychoanalysis.

I think you're projecting your distaste for psychoanalysis onto Dan, an unwitting victim of your pent up rage.  Oh, and you clearly hate your mother.

60 Hook
I first saw this at a reviewer's preview in 1991. I hated it, and slagged it off in the local paper I was writing for at the time, declaring it "Spielberg's folly" or some such pretentious nonsense. I watched it again this afternoon whilst working and I don't know if I have become a less cynical, soppier old sod but I loved it for what it is; a magnificently-entertaining family film. Dustin Hoffman excels as a comically-nasty Captain Hook and even the oft-irritating Robin Williams dials it down a notch to create a credible 'grown-up' Peter Pan. I hereby stand very much corrected.
61 A Hard Day's Night

New-to-me movies are bolded.

1. Up In the Air
2. Bottle Rocket
3. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  I could have used a little bit more exposition, but visually amazing.
4. The Hangover Funny, but Bradley Cooper's character was annoying. Would have been better in the theater
5. Avatar 3-D version.  As has been stated before, so pretty
6. The House Bunny It didn't suck. And was way more conservative/traditional than I would have expected.
7. Keeping Mum Maggie Smith plays a psychopath, Rowan Atkinson plays a normal person, and Patrick Swayze plays a sleazy golf pro.
8. Tin Man Sy-fy mini series redoing "The Wizard of Oz".  Stick to the original, as Zooey D. is annoying and Alan Cumming is underused.
9. The Talented Mr. Ripley Who knew you could feel sympathy for a psychopath?
10. When in Rome Cute, predictable, and snappier than expected.
11. Gods and Monsters very quiet film, and interesting look at the director who created Frankenstein and Showboat.
12. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Animated Short Films
13. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Short Films
14. In Good Company Dennis Quaid = good, Scarlett Johannsen = I don't understand the appeal.
15. Shaun the Sheep off the Baa By Nick Park, lots of sheep shorts. Previews were for the under 5 yo crowd.
16. Alice in Wonderland 3D.  Just enough Johnny Depp.  Good flick, very fun, and remarkably not scary-creepy.
17. Saving Face Chinese lesbian living in New York tries to keep her life from her mother.
18. Hogfather Another Sy-Fy type movie. Really need to stop watching these, because they aren't as good as they should be.
19. Fanboys So fun, and the music was dead-on.  I'll leave all other fan-wanking to people more vested in Star wars.
20. How to Train Your Dragon 3-d.  I think I should be getting residuals for dragon-inspiration.  Toothless= dead ringer for my cat!
21. Sex, Lies, and Videotape- I still love James Spader, though he has creepy characters nailed.
22. 17 Again.  Sucked Again
23. The Proposal- not too bad on the plane
24. Four Rooms  Interesting combo of short films.  Tarantino is annoying, though.

25. Barbershop  Light movie, and pretty funny.  I'd heard it was good, and I definitely enjoyed it.
26. Babies very cute, and we westerners way smother our kids.  Look out for goats!

22. Crazy Love - Ugghh. Two people who deserve each other. I know I'm being a bit insensitive and cruel toward the woman (I forget her name) and you could give me very good reasons about how she has been psychologically damaged, but as far as I'm concerned about cases like this, "don't care, don't care, I just want my Okama game sphere back".
23. The Yes Men - A documentary about a couple guys who set up a fake WTO website and how legitimate organizations would get fooled and contact them about making presentations at their various conventions and seminars. Some definite funny laugh out loud stuff at their speeches and demonstrations but everything in between was so boring. But it was relatively short so it was worthwhile watching.

3 movies I watched that won't go toward my count but were worth noting for me because I was on an 80s kick.
THE KARATE KID - you haven't REALLY seen it till you've sat with The Greg and he rattles off all of Daniel LaRusso's punk-kid offenses
WILDCATS - a family favorite. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
ROMANCING THE STONE - I thought I would grow up to be Joan Wilder, a romance novelist who spends evenings celebrating with her cat and airplane bottles of liquor.
