3 sentences:
1) Exactly what I expected (nothing more & nothing less)
2) a roller coaster for adults
3) See it in 3D or not, in Imax or not, but see it where you know the sound will be perfect.

More on this in the film's topic later today.

Laura (1944) dir: Otto Preminger stars: Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb, and Vincent Price great, some of the lines between Price and Webb are hilarious. 9/10

The Beast With Five Fingers (1946) 7/10. Is the detached hand of a dead pianist strangling people, or is Peter Lorre seeing things? Turns out, the answer is . . . yes! Good gothic horror flick with noir stylistics. Robert Alda's performance as the hero is so smooth it barely registers.

The Big Combo (1955) 7/10. First Blu-ray viewing. The widescreen framing is, for the most part, convincing. There's plenty of print damage, but black/white levels are solid, and the image is only a little soft. This is so much better than those copies of PD prints that have circulated for years. What about the film itself? Obviously, if you have lighting by Alton and music by Raksin you're half-way to a great movie. Getting all the way across the goal line, though, is difficult with a dodgy plot, a dull hero, a wilting heroine, and some of the lamest dialogue ever committed to cinema. Strangely, although everyone around him is mouthing idiocies, Richard Conte is never less than riveting. Did they really save all the good lines for him, or was he just the kind of actor who could read the phone book and get applause? "First is first, and Second is Nobody." Hmmm, no, must be the performance.

V for Vendetta (2005)
- 5.5/10

Disappointing, to say at least.

My main beef with V is that really wanted to convince us it's somehow  profound, when it's pitched at the sophistication level of a high school sophomore. Muttering about revolution doesn't lend depth to a movie. Presumably the graphic novel is better in this regard.

Phenomena - 4/10 - Jennifer Connelly is an outcast teenager who can psychically control insects. There's also a deformed serial killer, a razor-wielding chimp, Motorhead music and Donald Pleasance. Why then does it suck so much? None of Argento's movies are strong on plot but most make some sense. This one just feels like a million ideas randomly thrown at the screen. It's too disjointed to draw the viewer in and too disgusting (or ridiculous) to be scary.

La nuit américaine (1973) - 8/10
Probably the best film I've seen about filmmaking.

Indeed, the comic book (from the early/mid 80's, btw) does not traduce well into the movie. Which is, also, reasonably outdated (if that's the right word), as well as self-indulgent in forced philosophy in more that one occasion (courtesy of Alan Moore). But the comic book (with all its faults) still has a fluid and captivating atmosphere - story bond, greatly due to the Lloyd's art, which this movie, sadly, doesn't even try to emulate. But more than anything else - it looks like a cheap-looking, unenthusiastic movie, although you can clearly see they put a lot of money in it. Some call it irony.

Same here. Which means there is room for the definitive one.

Pina (2011) - 9/10
It happened to be on the telly. I first saw it in 3D at the cinema, and must say the small 2D screen can't do justice to the visuals. But still it's one hell of a film.

V for Vendetta is an excellent comic with the for Moore usual fantastic storytelling. The film, which is not bad, fails cause the film simply hasn't enough time to tell the story in all its complexity. And by condensing it the film loses the things which made the comic so fascinating. The best scene was then one which was not directly inspired by the comic.

Make a faithful TV mini series out of the book, and you have a good chance for a masterpiece.

On the other hand Watchmen follows the comic often very closely, still it does not find its spirit.

Watchmen though has the insurmountable disadvantage of being directed by Zack Snyder.
