Thanks, The original with Maureen O Hara or the remake ? I almost forgot about that one, that is a good heads up indeed !

Bio:
" ... I was in this room, see, this big, huge dark room, and it was filled, every inch of it, with chairs, all of 'em facing one direction like, like a church maybe, only the chairs were facing a blank wall. Can ya imagine? A blank wall! Suddenly the lights went out. I blinked my eyes trying to get 'em adjusted to the dark when the blank wall lit up, lit up, and there was sound from everywhere. And the wall wasn't blank anymore but instead ... there was everything on it, everything, everything you could ever think of, and more. Lots more. And smiling people, friendly, like nobody you ever met. And they seemed ... they wanted me. They beckoned, calling for me. I could barely make it out, but I could hear 'em ... "The dreamtime! The dreamtime! The dream... "

Before Midnight

Before Midnight

(2013)

Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke portray a couple so well that at times I felt as if I were intruding as they navigate/negogiate both their present day lives as well as the life they would like to have in Richard Linklater's sublime paean to modern love. Pretentious and self aware throughout, while essentially 5 or 6 conversations and yet ... therein the sparkle.
I dare you to watch this and not think at least once that you've had their very conversation, with exactly the same emotion.

Looking at the other critiques for this film simply leaves me speechless. Did Nurse Ratched not check to see if the other inmates at this asylum were indeed taking their meds?
Its the best fairy tale brought (that's right, we asked for them to bring it and they did, they brought it!) to film, bar none.
This is one, I'm thinking, that goes over the heads of this generation. I don't know why. Gonna need the next one (barring the zombie apocalypse) to appreciate this.
Charlize Theron's evil queen is delicious. Stewart's okay ... why they be hatin' on her so bad? CGI's great too.

My Super Ex-Girlfriend

A wee bit of fun, a guilty pleasure, reversing the traditional superhero dynamic: what if a woman had the superpowers? In this film, played for yuck-yuck-yuck-yuck-yucks, naturally she' d have to be, er, you know, a little, er, difficult, yah?
So what if its a one joke premise? The ensemble has some fun with it, with Luke Wilson as Lois Lane, Rainn Wilson as Jimmy Olsen, and Eddie Izzard as Lex Luthor.
And of course, me always liking some Uma Thurman and Anna Faris.
Its better than it sounds.

Jack Reacher

By-the-numbers standard crime thriller, with Cruise as the tough-as-nails investigator (leaned out 21st century style with no traditional trench coat, no traditional whiskey in the bottom desk drawer of a crummy second floor office, no traditional smokes, only plenty of whoop ass), Rosamund Pike as the babe (shimmering) and, of course, the usual cast of suspects.
Served hot.
Cruise doesn't say the line, "I'm Batman", but if he did it would be the same movie.
