Duck Soup (1933) - 8/10
I prefer Night at the Opera. A real shame is that many (especially Groucho's) jokes are so fast that I couldn't always follow. And you just can't subtitle something like that.
But the funniest part of the movie is the non-verbal Mirror Scene.

The Player - good stuff! Altman rocks.

Best part is the ending (from Bruce Willis' part to the end)

Tru dat and there are some other non-verbal gags that are hilarious too, but the ingenuity of 1/3 of the Marx bros is, for a good part, lost on me. Unfortunatelly. Groucho is not much fun if you can't follow what he says.

Rango (2011) 8/10. Kinda a Chinatown for kids, with a lot of Spaghetti references thrown in. The animation is very good--PIXAR level. Hans Zimmer riffs on a lot of music that people on this board will recognize. Los Lobos provides a few songs as well. There are quite a few chuckles throughout the film. The highlight is a double cameo--Timothy Olyphant as The Man With No Name playing The Spirit of the West. Gore Verbinski, you hack genius!

Good to hear. I'm looking for a movie to watch tomorrow and it looks like the theater's showing crap, so it's on the short list.

Fahrenheit 451 - 7-8/10 - Hmm. It starts out great, and reasonably close to the novel, but the changes in the second half are a bit jarring. A very pretty film - perhaps too pretty given the subject - and well-acted, though I'm not sure what the point of Julie Christie in a dual role was. I liked enough to be generous towards it - for now.

Aliens - 7/10 - 3rd viewing. It's alright. Forget Dances With Wolves when talking about Avatar, Cameron's just as keen on recycling his own work as that of others. The action scenes are good and the effects quite impressive, but the dialogue scenes are laughably forced and the slow pace doesn't help. Sigourney Weaver is cool and Lance Henriksen does a good job, but someone strangle that frigging kid please.

I think I like the movie better than the book, though. And the point of Julie Christie in the dual role was an extra Christie with every order.

Monsieur Hire (1989) - 4/10. Pointless remake of Duvivier's Panique (1947), itself sourced from a Simenon novel. The updating might have worked--here the title character is not only a pariah but a voyeur--if it weren't for all the plot holes. It never occurs to Sandrine Bonnaire's character to put blinds on her windows? And, if M. Hire has evidence that will exonerate him, why does he run? And how is it the police inspector never searched M. Hire's apartment to begin with? Finally, the filmmakers missed a bet with their theme: If Sandrine Bonnaire is motivated by amour fou, wouldn't it make sense for M. Hire to be similarly stricken? SPOILERwhenshetriestoframeM.HirehewouldallowhimselftobeblamedandaccepttheconsequencesoutofmisplacedloyaltytoherSPOILER.
The film is just not well thought out.

The Untouchables - 7/10 - The coolest movie in the world at age 14. Really goofy and over-the-top at age 22. But still fun in its own way.

I'm not a huge fan of the book - generally speaking, Bradbury was a better short-story writer than a novelist. That being said, I think the later sections rather compromise Bradbury's message. That and the pretty pictures make the novel's feeling of doom and repression almost moot.
