Capote
Capote (2005)
11 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

[u][b]Wallace and Gromit

[/b][/u]I'm not familiar at all with the shorts, but I thought the movie was fun, nothing more. The animation was fluid and excellent, but I just didn't find the film that funny. Maybe I just don't get it.

[u][b]Capote

[/b][/u]Believe what you've heard about Hoffman's performance, it is that good. He comletely emodies Capote and the voice is dead on from what I can recall. The film is a fascinating exploration of Capote's life during the time he wrote his famous novel In Cold Blood. It examines the relationship between the killers he is writing about and how the book consumes and changes his life. But make no mistake, this is mainly Hoffman's show, and a great one it is.

[u][b]All The President's Men

[/b][/u]There are few things in film I love more than a brilliantly written script, and so it's no suprise I really loved this film. Basically all this film is about is the journalistic search by Bob Woodward and Carl Berstein to find the real truth behind the Watergate break in's. But even though the concept itself is simple, the execution is brilliant. By firmly placing the film in the perspective of Woodward and Berstein the audience only knows what they know, and so each new encounter with a witness is suspensful, interesting, and makes you crave more. It's surpsingly easy to understand for a movie that contains such a wealth of information and naturally, Redford and Hoffman give excellent performances. I was a little unsure about the ending at first, I expected something...bigger. But on retrospect, the subtle approach taken is perhaps the perfect way to the end the film

[u][b]Doom

[/b][/u]Sooooo horrible, but quite hilarious. I got a kick out how many video game cliches they threw in. The Rock's performance also qualifies under the so bad it's good category. I love his exaggerated facial expressions, especially his eyes. I still don't know whether the first person shooter perspective is hilariously bad, or hilariously good. It's funny how the game plays out exactly like a videogame, and that's not a compliment.

[u][b]Princess Mononoke [/b][/u]

This was my first Miyazki and it's one of the best animated films I've seen. The animation is vibrant and some of the most stunning I've seen. The fantasy and imagination I expected was fully realized and was just fascinating to watch. And jeez, this wasn't a kids film. It had gore and blood, I certainly wasn't expecting that.
