Saw "Looper" last night. Interesting premise, cool ending, but parts of it definitely failed to hold my attention. I'd probably give it 3.5/5.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Parts 1 & 2--Brilliant and faithful adaptation of Frank Miller's Gotham masterpiece. It's all there. Carrie Kelly, Harvey Dent, the Joker, the Mutants, The Sons of Batman, Bats vs. Supes. President Reagan. Really great. I only noticed three minor scenes/lines missing tbh...which is amazing ("Why do you think I wear a target on my chest?", "Boy wonder, gotta be." and "Robin, stand up straight." Peter Weller as the voice of Batman. See it.

Resident Evil: Retribution on DVD. Freebie gift so I can't complain! Cleverly made fun romp if you can stand the gory superviolence that goes with the franchise. Usually whenever anyone mentions CGI it's in a negative way, too much, or too obvious, but quality levels here were high, it's a sharp, believable visual experience. Innovative opening sequence! Also, Jill Valentine, woo. Critics didn't like it much, but I did.

Resident Evil: Retribution

I have to be honest, I hate this franchise on principle. Completely butchers the games appeal.

That said I love the over the top action sequences. This one is probably the best in that department too. I just wish Anderson would leave the script to someone else, his directing is great but his writing is abysmal.

Like dpaterso said, it's a fun little romp. If you want a compelling story or a movie that doesn't defy logic by all means look elsewhere.

Kon-Tiki (English language version). Quite a lovely film, and worth checking out if you love true adventure stories!

Dear Ms. Annoying for 2013,

I agree with your assessment except for one thing:

Peter Weller.

Now, he did a fine job in Part 1 and I liked the story--it was also done (in a fairly toned down way) in Batman, TAS--but in Part 2, he sounded too robotic.

I really expected him to say "Come quietly or there will be...trouble".

Kevin Conroy IS the voice of Batman, but Part 2, sick as it was, was excellent. Lots of ultraviolence, but worth a watch.

Winter Passing. I'm surprised I'd never heard of it before. Zooey Deschannel was fantastic, and it was just a great movie. It also happens to be the only Will Ferrel movie I've never seen.

Caught up with Looper and Sinister recently.

Looper was amazing, as I had anticipated, and I was pleased with Sinister for what it was. I convinced myself of the plot halfway through, and I came out 98% right, but I thought it was enjoyable.

Sadly they're already working around a sequel....

Fair enough. And yes, too Kevin Conroy. While, we're at it, I didn't love the Joker's voice. Would it have been to hard to call Mark Hamill?

And, btw, it's Ms. More Annoying for 2013. Thank you.

I stand corrected on the 'More Annoying' thing. I agree with your assessment of the Joker's voice but DiMaggio wasn't bad. He also did The Toyman in Superman: Doomsday. For this Batman and Batman, Under the Red Hood, he did Joker and while I prefer Mark Hamill, I think DiMaggio's take on it was acceptable.

Check your PM's, please.

Skyfall - Great, but weird. Somehow, I felt like I was invading 007's privacy in the last act, and felt more questions were left than were answered (but with very interesting suggestions in lieu) , but it set up and completed the reboot elements in a very interesting way. And, of course, Javier Bardem...just wow. I want him to play the Joker, should the Clown Prince of Crime return to the big screen anytime in the next decade.

Red, for the same reason (only thing on). Still a delightfully fun movie.

I'm watching Gladiator for the first time ever at the moment. It's the director's cut, and so far I love it. Suddenly I'm glad Les Miserables gave me a fascination with Russell Crowe.

It's okay, my wife's a huge Johnny Depp fan, too.

Watched 'How Green Was My Valley' and 'Manhunt' over the last couple of days. Excellent in every way. Walter Pidgeon wasn't the greatest actor around, but he had a very distinctive voice. I'd forgotten how good those films really were, old-fashioned in the best sort of way.

If he could steer clear of Tim Burton and Pirates for awhile, I might be into him again. But lately...eh...

Last watched: Following. Old black and white Chris Nolan movie about an author who shadows a professional thief to get information for his characters, and gets caught up in Intrigue for reals. Better than it sounds.

Rhoda, I've been wondering if that movie was worth it.

Also, have you seen Depp in The Ninth Gate? It's a terrible movie, but he has some good lines.

I thought so. It certainly held my interest for the duration. Some twists are easy to see coming, but it's so well-acted and restrained I found it a compelling watch.

Indeed I have--first and last Roman Polanski film I ever watched. Very unsettling.

I guess I must be in the minority because I liked that flick. Granted, the twists were easy to see and you know he's going to sell his soul to you-know-who, but the acting was very good and the direction, as always, impeccable. Polanski is certainly no angel and deserves to be run in for what he did (even though they'll never get him) but he is a terrific director.

Watched They Shoot Horses, Don't They? and it was practically a perfect flick. Also re-discovered Klute. Never liked Hanoi Jane and never will, but damn, she did some great work.
