Just came back from Brave, which was really a great deal of fun. Rollicking good fun, great animation, etc. A little weak in the story, but not bad. Probably not up there with the very best of Pixar films but worth the time to see. Special mention of the short before Brave: very sweet short entitled, I believe La Luna.

Some good animation coming up: Finding Nemo is to be re-released. Wreck It Ralph looks like it will really be good.

Good Neighbors, a really strange murder mystery, where there is a side issue regarding cats. Slow to build but worth the wait till the end.

Ok I know I'm a little late to the party but my daughter and I watched The Help last weekend and loved it! I'm almost done with the book now. Very slow going but great story.

I'm kinda doing a binge of kinda bad movies and thought I would recommend:

Bad Teacher.

This one is highly recommended for KMInfinity.
It's not a great movie, but it has some moments. I was in the mood for something like this. Highly inappropriate and pokes some pretty big fun at a couple of stereotypes.

Forgot: Just watched Two Days in Paris on Netflix. I somehow overlooked this previously but was reminded about it by the upcoming Two Days in New York. A very good film I thought--falls into that category of romantic dramedy. Written, directed and starred in by Julie Delphy. English and French, with subtitles. Easily see influences by Woody Allen, hits stereotypes of the French, Americans and artists of various kinds. Very smart and also sweet/sad.

Finally saw Albert Nobbs. Don't usually like period pieces but wow, this was a good film. One could say how sad that people couldn't be themselves then but still hasn't changed in some parts of the Bible Belt.

Also saw Bernie, liked it but not crazy for it. The eveil woman reminded me of my mother...

Just saw Bernie as well. I liked it, but wasn't wowed. Except to learn that it was based upon a real person. I knew they used the actual townspeople in the film. Which makes it all that more darkly, darkly humorous.

Still haven't seen Bad Teacher. :P

Caught Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close this weekend, apropos 9/11. I was not impressed much. The film seemed very manipulative, very contrived. I didn't much like the premise, or the kid playing Oskar. (Or, maybe the way Oskar was written and the kid was directed.)

I loved the book (Extremely Loud), but haven't seen the movie yet. Have heard/read plenty of both good and bad about it.
