63. The Wolf of Wall Street - 8

This was really, really good but even as such it was easily about 45 minutes too long.  They spend so long on the set up and debauchery culture in and around the firm, that it is over halfway in before we even get to the "consequences" portion of the film.  As celebrated as Scorsese's editor is, she really dropped the ball on this one.  There is so much nudity and sex in the first 2 hours that even I was a little surprised.  Not in a "morally outraged" kind of way, but in a "I can see why this was almost NC-17" kind of way.

That said, DiCaprio should be a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination, and Hill is incredibly strong also.  Many of the supporting cast are recognizable in a "that guy" sorta way, but all do a really good job.  This film is almost a comedy in a lot of ways, maybe even moreso than:

64. American Hustle - 8

The second of a fully legal double feature that C-Fan and I took in on Saturday afternoon.  I didn't laugh as much as I expected to, but it was really well done and fun.  This movie also suffers from being overly long... they spend a lot of time setting up the final half hour... maybe they couldn't have done without some of the sequences, but I certainly could as they were a little boring. 

The entire cast does a great job here, even during some of the scenes that let them down a bit.  Bradley Cooper is doing the finest work of his career here, even better than Silver Linings Playbook.  The other 3 leads are right up there as well, with perhaps Amy Adams' cleavage turning in the most screen time of any cleavage in film history.

93. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
94. Man of Steel
95. Blackfish
96. The Wolf of Wall Street


Man of Steel: Eh. There was too much destruction. If Superman really cared about humans it would have been very easy to fly a few miles outside of town to duke it out and only destroy some trees. The amount of insurance costs would be beyond anything we've encountered. Also, the g/f hated the not-even-thinly-veiled allegory to Christ. And we both thought that Zach Snyder makes great movies for 13 year old boys. We are not his target audience, I guess.

Blackfish: What Butter said. It's obvious that they only tell one side of the story, but they tell it in a way that it makes SeaWorld sound like an evil corporate spin machine and no matter what we heard from the other side of the story we would hate it. And in fact we know what they would say anyway. I thought the best parts of this was the education about Orcas in the wild and how they behave. Absolutely fascinating.

Wolf of Wall Street: My first thought: so....this is basically Boiler Room? (Turns out that yes, they use the same source material.) Second thought: Wow that was a lot of craziness. Third thought: the blond was really amazingly stunning. Fourth thought: the debauchery and nudity was over the top and the point could have been made just as effectively with considerably less amount of screen time. I'm not complaining about nudity - ever - but for effective filmmaking I don't think that much was needed. I truly enjoyed all of it, though.

In conclusion: TWoWS = Boiler Room crossed with Goodfellas. Good times and glad I saw it, but not a movie of the year.

A usual, new to me movies are in bold

1. The Switch A really ridiculous premise, and Jason Bateman couldn't pull it together.
2. Friends with Kids Nice ensemble, fully fleshed out characters, it was fun.
3. The Hobbit Definitely lighter than LotR, and I enjoyed the sing along portion. Did wonder where are the women of Middle Earth are, though.
4. Monsters, Inc.  Still very funny, and a lovely film.
5. The Descendents Clooney was very good in this- I can see why he was nominated. Thought it was interesting to depict the coma-wife as not a saint, and that none of the characters were. Lots of good ethical questions, too.
6. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day-- the farcial side of this makes my heart sing, and it's so very lovely. I could see it as a stage production.
7. Argo Finally saw it, and it was incredible. It really lived up to the hype even after several months of hearing how great it was, and that almost never happens for me.
8. The Bourne Legacy Started off way to slow, and the constant Bourne references were a little much. Was ok, but I don't see them making more of these. The motorbike scene went on way too long.
9. Monsters, Inc. (Again) Caught even more jokes this go round. My mother thought it was adorable.
10. Silver Linings Playbook It was good, but a little uncomfortable with the depiction of mental illness.  I felt like the end implied that Pat was cured by his love of Tiffany. I did think the question of what is mentally ill was well depicted. DeNiro's OCD, the hair-trigger temper of the brother, Tiffany's self-destruction... what makes someone "crazy?"
11. Warm Bodies fun, not terrible, and I really enjoyed it.
12. Good Day to Die Hard things go "boom", I laughed. Saw with Lando, so a plus!
13. Pitch Perfect I loved this movie! Too bad the netflix didn't have any extra features.
14. Wreck It Ralph Fantastic movie. Clever plotting, great story, and visually awesome.
15. Admission Paul Rudd + Tina Fey + Lily Tomlin = could have been better, but still better than most movies.
16. Cedar Rapids I kept wondering what Ed Helms's mother thought about him walking around in tighty-whiteys.
17. Oz: The Great and Powerful Actually liked James Franco in this. Mila Kunis was ok, but her voice really annoyed me-- and why did one sister have a British accent and the other didn't?
18. Blow Dry-- a movie from 2000 about a British hair-styling competition. Between Alan Rickman, Bill Nighy, Natasha Richardson, Rachel Griffiths, and Hugh Bonneville, it's pretty good. Silly, but entertaining. Oh, Josh Hartnett does a not half-bad accent, too.
19. The Crow-  Oh, Brandon Lee! You could have been a great actor. Sniff!
20. Legally Blonde-- Still a fun movie, can't believe how long it's been out
21. Resident Evil- nope. just nope.
22. Iron Man III-- my house made the movie! (sorta) Will have to watch again to pick out Wilmington screening locations
23. What's Your Number Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be, but not as good as it could have been. Chris Evans was actually funny. huh.
24. Behind the Candelabra The rhinestones! The sparkle! I really don't get all the Soderbergh love, though.
25. Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves -- Why did I love this movie 20 years ago?
26. Crazy Stupid Love- Look, I'm really only watching it for Ryan Gosling, and I don't care who knows it.
27. Star Trek: Into Darkness It loses its punch when you realize they grow up to be Nimoy and Shatner. Like Kirk and Spock are going to be killed off?
28. Fast and Furious 6 Nearly enough car racing, and dear god, how long is that runway?  "Samoan Thor" made it all worth it.
29. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Saw this the same weekend as IM3. Completely forgot I saw it.
30. American Reunion: Wow, this was really bad. Really, really bad.
31. Two Weeks Notice: I could watch Hugh Grant bumble and Sandra Bullock spaz in many movies. It's a good Saturday afternoon flick.
32. Not Another Teen Movie Wow, I watch some bad stuff. Surprise appearance by Josh Radnor, though, so not all bad.
33. Dark Shadows Terrible. Johnny Depp, what were you thinking?
34. Magic Mike- Still don't get the Soderbergh love.
35. Much Ado About Nothing Thoroughly enjoyed- Amy Acker and Alexis Dennisof are so good together, and I loved Fran Kranz.
36. Pitch Perfect- still a fun movie. Hard to believe that Anna Kendrick is the same actress from Up in the Air.
37. The Heat OK, it was fun, and I laughed. One of the NKOTB was in it with a wicked Boston accent.
38. Anchoman- It's still pretty funny.
39. A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas This was not good. I'm only a little ashamed that I watched it and laughed.
40. Man of Steel Hadn't planned on seeing it, but I really enjoyed it. Cavill was the perfect Superman. And I like how they dealt with the Lois Lane doesn't recognize Superman situation.
41. Madagascar 3  I was not the target audience on this one.
42. Rango Nice, sweet movie. Very different plot than I expected, which helped the concept greatly.
43. Mr. and Mrs. Smith-- Total fun, plot-holey fun. A good rewatch
44.  Big Miracle - Heartwarming story about whales in Alaska. Makes me glad to be someplace warm.
45. Shawn of the Dead- I hadn't realized how many people from Spaced were in this! Still excellent!
46. Don Juan de Marco meh. It's 20 years old now...
47. RED A rather fun movie- plus Helen Mirren with a gun? Awesome! I'll watch her be an action hero any day.
48. Despicable Me 2 Saw with Lando and my cousin, I think the adults laughed more than the kids did. It was a fun flick.
49. Monsters University Not as great as the first one, but loved seeing more monsters.
50. Elektra I can't buy Jennifer Garner as an action hero, and found the plot weak.  Would have preferred a story about her and the representative of the side of evil- that would have been interesting. Goran Visnjic (sp) was a bright spot.
51. Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters The worst movie I've seen all year. Terrible! Thought I'd see Jeremy Renner in another movie, but he was pretty much wallpaper in this. Famke Janssen was the best thing in the movie.
52. The Wolverine There was a point in the movie where I thought, "Hugh Jackman REALLY wishes that he could break into song right here, but Wolverine is too brooding for that."  I also thought that it would have been more interesting for the love interest to be Yukio (the redheaded woman).
53. Savages I can see why it flopped. John Travolta wasn't too bad, and I wanted more out of Taylor Kitsch.
54. The World's End good soundtrack. I laughed a lot, and really enjoyed it.
55. Monty Python's Meaning of Life A fish, a fish, a fishy....
56. Miss Congeniality- Still fun, and Sandra Bullock does goofy so well.
57. The Lone Ranger- It wasn't perfect, but it was made for 8 year olds. I liked it, loved the horse, and was super happy when the theme came on.
58. The Butler- tried to do too much of a story, but it was alright.
59. The Birdcage I'd never seen it, and it's amazing how much social norms have changed in the last 19 years. I found it more shocking that the young couple were 20 and almost 18... too young to get married!
60. Don Jon JGL and Scarlett Johannsen were knock-outs in their characters. A little predictable, and needed more Tony Danza (but doesn't everything?), but was still fun.
61. Interview with the Vampire-- wow, this did NOT hold up well.  I spent more time laughing at it than anything else.
62. Hugo- beautiful, just beautiful, and not the story I expected. Well done, previews, for not giving it away!
63. Avengers-- this is still a good movie. I love the Hulk.
64. Iron Man 2 Wow, Gwynneth Paltrow was awful.
65. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen Saw this ages ago, wanted to like it more than I did. Ewan McGregor is delightful!
66. Love Actually- Still love this movie. First thing I saw Martin Freeman in!
67. Raiders of the Lost Ark- Harrison Ford was so young. The special effects aren't wonderful any more, but it's still good.
68. Four Christmases- The horrible families make me really anxious, and it doesn't get better on repeat viewing.
69. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug It wasn't terrible, but I enjoyed it. Should have been called Thorin Oakenshield and friends, and I'm annoyed I have to wait a year to see the end.

47. The Slanted Screen - Interesting perspective from male asian actors on the stereotypes and steps taken to increase available roles with more character depth in hollywood.  Very similar statements as other underrepresented minorities in movies, but it was interesting to hear a brief history of what stereotypes that are perpetuated that frustrate asian male actors and directors. Would enjoy a similar film analyzing female asian characters and the stereotypes and objectification they experience.
48. Our Idiot Brother - Mildly entertaining quasi-indie flick with bigger name stars.  Not bad, not great.
49. Cashback - Had no idea or expectations going in, but found it to be a fairly entertaining little romantic indie film. 
50. Hopscotch - Probably would have sat longer in my Netflix queue if it weren't for CR's recommendation.  Enjoyable cat and mouse movie.  Glad I ended the year with it.

A usual, new to me movies are in bold

1. The Switch A really ridiculous premise, and Jason Bateman couldn't pull it together.
2. Friends with Kids Nice ensemble, fully fleshed out characters, it was fun.
3. The Hobbit Definitely lighter than LotR, and I enjoyed the sing along portion. Did wonder where are the women of Middle Earth are, though.
4. Monsters, Inc.  Still very funny, and a lovely film.
5. The Descendents Clooney was very good in this- I can see why he was nominated. Thought it was interesting to depict the coma-wife as not a saint, and that none of the characters were. Lots of good ethical questions, too.
6. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day-- the farcial side of this makes my heart sing, and it's so very lovely. I could see it as a stage production.
7. Argo Finally saw it, and it was incredible. It really lived up to the hype even after several months of hearing how great it was, and that almost never happens for me.
8. The Bourne Legacy Started off way to slow, and the constant Bourne references were a little much. Was ok, but I don't see them making more of these. The motorbike scene went on way too long.
9. Monsters, Inc. (Again) Caught even more jokes this go round. My mother thought it was adorable.
10. Silver Linings Playbook It was good, but a little uncomfortable with the depiction of mental illness.  I felt like the end implied that Pat was cured by his love of Tiffany. I did think the question of what is mentally ill was well depicted. DeNiro's OCD, the hair-trigger temper of the brother, Tiffany's self-destruction... what makes someone "crazy?"
11. Warm Bodies fun, not terrible, and I really enjoyed it.
12. Good Day to Die Hard things go "boom", I laughed. Saw with Lando, so a plus!
13. Pitch Perfect I loved this movie! Too bad the netflix didn't have any extra features.
14. Wreck It Ralph Fantastic movie. Clever plotting, great story, and visually awesome.
15. Admission Paul Rudd + Tina Fey + Lily Tomlin = could have been better, but still better than most movies.
16. Cedar Rapids I kept wondering what Ed Helms's mother thought about him walking around in tighty-whiteys.
17. Oz: The Great and Powerful Actually liked James Franco in this. Mila Kunis was ok, but her voice really annoyed me-- and why did one sister have a British accent and the other didn't?
18. Blow Dry-- a movie from 2000 about a British hair-styling competition. Between Alan Rickman, Bill Nighy, Natasha Richardson, Rachel Griffiths, and Hugh Bonneville, it's pretty good. Silly, but entertaining. Oh, Josh Hartnett does a not half-bad accent, too.
19. The Crow-  Oh, Brandon Lee! You could have been a great actor. Sniff!
20. Legally Blonde-- Still a fun movie, can't believe how long it's been out
21. Resident Evil- nope. just nope.
22. Iron Man III-- my house made the movie! (sorta) Will have to watch again to pick out Wilmington screening locations
23. What's Your Number Not nearly as bad as I thought it would be, but not as good as it could have been. Chris Evans was actually funny. huh.
24. Behind the Candelabra The rhinestones! The sparkle! I really don't get all the Soderbergh love, though.
25. Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves -- Why did I love this movie 20 years ago?
26. Crazy Stupid Love- Look, I'm really only watching it for Ryan Gosling, and I don't care who knows it.
27. Star Trek: Into Darkness It loses its punch when you realize they grow up to be Nimoy and Shatner. Like Kirk and Spock are going to be killed off?
28. Fast and Furious 6 Nearly enough car racing, and dear god, how long is that runway?  "Samoan Thor" made it all worth it.
29. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Saw this the same weekend as IM3. Completely forgot I saw it.
30. American Reunion: Wow, this was really bad. Really, really bad.
31. Two Weeks Notice: I could watch Hugh Grant bumble and Sandra Bullock spaz in many movies. It's a good Saturday afternoon flick.
32. Not Another Teen Movie Wow, I watch some bad stuff. Surprise appearance by Josh Radnor, though, so not all bad.

70. Moonstruck- this is still a good movie "Snap out of it!" Cher was good, Nic Cage was good, and the lines were snappy. Good way to finish the year.

224. Hospitalite (Film Movement DVD; 2010 release from Japan)
Updating the last 10 days or so of 2013 (movies seen in the theatre in bold):

225. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (DVD)
226. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Springdale Cinema de Lux)
227. The Wolf of Wall Street (Springdale Cinema de Lux)
228. Last Vegas (Danberry Dollar Theatre)

Walter Mitty is quite good actually, much better than I expected.

Assuming I'm in town, going to the movies on Christmas day in the late afternoon with my kids is a tradition going back many, many years to when they were young. Now it's one of those rare occasions that we are actually doing something together all three of us. This was the 1st time in 3 (or maybe 4?) years that I was actually in town on Christmas day. Per the old rules, we had a democratic vote, and the choices were Anchorman 2 (reason I saw the original Anchorman a few days before--hard to believe, but I had never seen it) or The Wolf of Wall Street. Imagine my surprise when both my kids voted for Wall Street over Anchorman. It was my preference as well, but I was perfectly fine with going to Anchorman 2. Anyway, out we went to The Wolf of Wall Street. We were all three pretty let down, if not outright disappointed. As it turns out, the movie is WAY, WAY too long (3 hours) for the amount of material covered. Could've easily cut 30-40 min. from the first 2 hours of the movie. This could've been a truly great movie, had it used some much tighter editing.

Last Vegas: for no other reason than I just went there. Pretty lame movie, but Vegas looks nice.

Onwards and upwards to 2014!

32. Turbo - I don't have to watch Monster High movies so given that perspective this gets 5 stars.

33. Frozen - Best Disney "Princess" movie in a long, long time.  Probably the best since The Little Mermaid.  Too bad they fucked up the marketing so badly.

34. Christmas Vacation

35. Vegas Vacation - I've seen this one a few times... it's highly under appreciated if you ask me.

36. The Heat - I LOL'd, a lot.

37. This is the End - Dumb, really dumb and obviously incredibly vulgar but funny as hell anyway.

38. Despicable Me 2 - Awesome, as expected.

I'm sure there were at least 12 other movies but I did a lousy job keeping track of them.  Oh well, I lose 2013.
