"Summer in Pittsburgh? That's fucking harsh." Truer words were never spoken.

Send Jess Biel my way then , I wouldn't mind

Nice in "Summer Catch".


"Summer in Pittsburgh? That's f**ing harsh." Truer words were never spoken.

I'm from Pittsburgh - you're missing out on the real secret of Pittsburgh...


Anyway, just saw (again) "For Love of the Game", damn good film, don't think it did good at box office, I had to go cross-town to catch it about a decade ago.  And I saw "21" - OK; but if the kid was so smart why didn't he get a safe deposit box rather than stash all that cash in his room?

Young Mr. Lincoln - 8-9/10 - A pure, unrefined piece of sentimental Americana, with lots of beautiful, poetic symbolism. It's a bit corny in patches, but that comes with the territory in John Ford films. Henry Fonda gives a great performance - career-best, or close.

Rent - 9/10 - I hadn't seen this since high school, but watching it again was like visiting with an old friend. Yeah, there are parts of the story that don't work, half the characters are unlikeable jerks and the cast is way too old, but I still have fun watching it. Plus I always want to bone Rosario Dawson after watching this flick, which is a plus.

Far From the Madding Crowd (1967) - 9.5/10. An adaptation of the Thomas Hardy novel about a flirtatious female farmer (Julie Christie) and the 3 men in her life. Despite the fact that Christie's limitations as an actress are everywhere here apparent, this is one of the finest literary adaptations I know. Of course it helps that the men are played by Alan Bates, Terence Stamp, and the immortal Peter Finch, AND that the English countryside looks so fabulous in 'scope. Watching this again, I realized this is where Scorsese got the scene in Casino of Sharon Stone throwing the poker chips in the air.

Another hard day at the cineplex (though I don't know why I bother).

Toy Story Imax 3-D - 5/10. The toys get dumped at an evil day care center. This is just very, very, very, very OK. The 3D is the best I've seen, and the film is quite clever in places, but overall it's a very predictable exercise.

Jonah Hex - 4/10. A disfigured bounty hunter with preternatural skills (he can converse with dead people) wanders into what amounts to an episode of The Wild Wild West. There's not an ounce of originality in this, but at times it shows a certain flair. The Neveldine/Taylor script keeps things moving along, but at 81 minutes you might question whether you're getting enough for your $11.25. I don't really know the comic book, but I'm guessing this adaptation has not served its source material all that well. Anyway, at no time during the movie did I get the feeling that a franchise was being launched.

I haven't seen the second one. The first was (also) okay.

Persepolis - 9/10 - I love the books, so tried to go in with modest expectations to avoid being horribly let down. Well, I wasn't. It did admittedly skim over much of what was in the books, but nothing terribly crucial was left out (some of Marji's childhood and a good chunk of the historical/political background to the Iranian Revolution were all I really noticed). It definitely maintains the comic's perfect mixture of charm, humor, pathos and tragedy, making Marji sympathetic without glossing over her less-than-admirable actions, and deftly mixing her personal and political tragedies. The animation is excellent too: the visual style is pretty basic, but enhanced by excellent animated montages, and the mostly black-and-white imagery allows for some brilliant stylistic touches. Magnificent.

Yep. Exept the second half is much less interesting than the childhood. That "mixture of charm, humor, pathos and tragedy" works perfectly well with a little girl as main character, and less with a woman.

I agree to an extent; the story is less inherently interesting when she's a teenager bumming around Vienna, but I think Satrapi's strength is in telling her story well. I did think some of the movie's funniest moments came after she grew up (especially her rant about her boyfriend, and the Eye of the Tiger montage).
