Melinda and Melinda

To call it Woody Allen's comeback, like some did, is REALLY stretching it. But, it's kind of funny, has solid drama, and Mitchell does a fine job in the difficult lead role.

Pan's Labyrinth

Well...THAT was overrated. Parts are magical (the art direction is spectacular, and the script is really good), but much of the imagery in the film is incredibly horrible (even in her escapist dream fantasy world). It's certainly deeper than it looks on first glance, but to get a full appreciation of that, I'd have to see it again, which, no thanks, I don't really want to. The lead performance is dull and annoying, but Maribel Verdu saves the film from total oblivion, and Sergi Lopez is scary good, literally. Oh, and if you're going to see this movie: I can't emphasize enough how violent it is and how much of that violence it chooses to show. It could match, I dunno, Hostel or something.

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (Les Parapluies de Cherbourg)

I hate to say stuff like this, but it's awfully dated. It's clearly supposed to pack an emotional wallop, which it doesn't any more because we've all seen this story a billion times since then, told in better ways. But it's still quite good, and so very pretty. I want to be Catherine Deneuve here, or at least steal all her clothes.

I was actively shocked by how GOOD this was. It's a period piece but totally full of passion and never, ever boring. Norton and Watts are spectacular. It was sadly pretty darn overlooked last year.

Batman Returns

Meh, it's very Burton (weird gothic style), and I just don't like him. The acting is pretty bad too, despite the fact that I've heard the opposite.
