    The Place Beyond the Pines - 8/10

    Really enjoyed that though it almost certainly helped that I knew nothing about it before I started watching.

    Up

    Very moving. The film struggled to justify it's feature length though I thought; the escapades just lost focus imo. Still terrific fun though, and emotional.

    80/100 or 80% or 8/10 or 4*

    Every time I think about Up, I get upset at Pixar for that copout ending third. Then I remember the wonderful film it is for the first two thirds. Then angry again.

    And their output since Up has been quite mediocre with the sole exception of Toy Story 3. Brave in particular was Dreamworks level of manipulative sham. I dearly hope they find their mojo again.

    :(

    See I think it's the other way round; the first and final thirds are wonderful, the middle third - not so much.

    Let Me In - 8/10

    Wow, that was rather good. I loved the chemistry between the two leads, and the story went to some pretty interesting places.

    Only sour point for me was the bully characters, who seemed sadistic beyond belief. Particularly the guy at the end: "well, you damaged my brother's ear, so basically I'm going to drown you, and if you somehow don't drown, stab both your eyes out". What? Who would do that?

    I haven't seen the original, but I want to now.

    Pixar has lost it completely. They are now worse than Hitler.

    Planes? I mean WTF! Brave... ;_; And now what? Finding Nemo 2?

    My ass.

    Well, it basically is. John Lasseter was heavily involved and its roots are in a Pixar franchise, and Disney own Pixar.

    It's interesting that they didn't actually release it under the Pixar banner. I suspect that was a late decision based on the quality.

    I just assumed it was Pixar! I want to look forward to Toy Story 4, but I'm worried they will sully TS3, which is practically perfect as a film imo.

    It's not pixar. It was meant to be a direct-to-DVD film, Lasseter was heavily involved (in fact that's the only reason it got a theatrical release) but it didn't involve the majority of pixar.

    Yeah everything I've heard is that it was all done at the Disney animation studios in LA. Pixar are still very much a separate entity getting on with their own thing in Emeryville.

    They can say it isn't pixar all they want but that doesn't change the fact that without pixar there would be no planes. Or that if pixar wasn't dutifully presenting their behinds to the mighty dollar there would be no planes.

    Their hands are dirty all the way up to their elbows.

    I think Tonka's basically saying that it's Pixar in all but name.

    Oh. I was confused by the implied condemnation of PIxar (the business) acting like a business.

    Alright to look at but fucking hell, the standard of acting and the script is absolute dogwank.
    That's about right, cheesy as heck, but CGI was cool, probably turn out to be a guilty pleasure in years to come.

    That sounds really polemic and distateful.

    But obviously, you're irrefutably right.

    The Big White - 9/10

    Rewatched it recently. I hate American comedy, and I dread Robin Williams. But this is actually a somewhat deep and pretty entertaining movie. Love it.

    edit: and Robin Williams is actually pretty likeable here.

    I think Pixar have got some original films coming out. When Disney took over they cancelled at least one original work for them to work on sequels. Incredibles 2 is pretty much a dead cert.

    The Star Wars films now will keep on coming and coming too once they get the gears rolling. They may accidentally make a few good ones.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    The Name Of The Rose...aka Sherlock Holmes in the middle ages. I love this film, seen it several times and never get bored of it
    100%

    Interesting little pop fact if true:
    Sean Connery's career was at such a low point when he read for the role that Columbia pictures refused to finance the film when director Jean-Jacques Annaud cast him as William of Baskerville.

    Misery

    It's been ages since I've seen it and initially I was going to save it for Halloween night but just couldn't resist... Utterly brilliant thriller!

    8.5/10

    Pitch Perfect - 4/10

    A cashite. Off the back of positive reviews I was hoping it'd be a guilty pleasure, but it's a completely derivative rom com, awfully scripted and totally mis-paced - there are several occasions where it genuinely feels like a key plot development has been cut, not least the numerous times where the girls burst into a spontaneous routine which happens to be perfectly synched and harmonised.
