    The Babadook (2014)

    Simply a wonderful film and one of my favorites of the year. Reminicent of some of the great psychological horror films of Roman Polanski as well as Cronenberg's The Brood. Great to see a film not only directed by a woman but coming from a woman's perspective. Not the scariest film ever made, as William Friedken tweeted, but is a film that stays with you long after it's over.
  5. I am glad they are coming to Phoenix. Of course, they seem to always come to Phoenix. One of the few great bands that come here. I usually have to go to LA to see anyone if I do.

    Streaming on Netflix in the US. I just thought it looked amazing.
  7. I thought quite the opposite (I thought it was delightfully simple), but the association between Resnais and these marvelous faces is enough to whet my appetite. Now that is my kind of teaser.
  8. Nicholas Cage in Kick-Ass! Oh wait, positive movie dads sorr.
  9. Swiss Family Robinson (1960), a movie that drives me nuts but was a favorite of my wife's as a kid. I have never seen the 1940 RKO version.

  12. One of my favorite's of the year. The film is a big, overstuffed and often loses itself; but I laughed and was genuinely moved.

    Blue Like Jazz (2012)

    The wife and I watched Blue Like Jazz last night and both enjoyed it. It made me laugh out loud several times and; l enjoyed the quirky sensibility and overall vibe. The film fits easily within the fish out of water learns life lesson genre and as far as that goes does not break any new ground. I did not think it any worse either directed or written than any number of mainstream Hollywood films that are released each year or make money at the box office. The film does have some script and pacing issues and often comes across as a series of funny vignettes rather than a cohesive whole; but it was not a major distraction for me. I found the film refreshing in its portrayal of faith as a journey of discovery as most popular films avoid faith like a plague and most "Christian" films present an us vs. them black and white view. Also, as has been said earlier in the thread the films soundtrack is one of its best features and is what keeps the film for me at least from seeming totally fragmented. I hope that Steve can continue to make movies in the future.
  16. The horrible digital projection is the reason I chose not to go see Singin' in the Rain. I could not justify the 12:50 price tag at the moment times 4. But I concur Darren that Singin' in the Rain is a special film. I too will watch anything with Gene Kelly who was one of the great American dancers and the greatest of film dancers.
