I've seen 4 movies in the last 3 weeks (quite unusual for me, but I'm bored).

Iron Lady (hagiography of Thatcher - 1 star)great acting but right-wing political views being soft-peddled.

Bond, OK, for a bond film. 1.5 star

Lincoln - great acting, really amazing actually, 3.5 out of 4 stars.

Argo - Iran hostage thriller. Almost had a heart attack watching it. Even you know it all works out, very suspenseful. 4 out of 4 in my book.

I'd give Prometheus a zero out of however many stars you want. It would have been disappointing if it had potential. It had no potential. The story was so weak that nothing could have saved it. A total waste.

I saw Argo over the weekend. It was good but they got sucked into Hollywood over-dramatization. Great (true) story, but I really doubt that everything barely happened by mere seconds (trying not to give anything away). It just seems kind of unnecessary over dramatize it. The story itself is dramatic enough. Worth the watch though.

The L Shaped Room.
A real gem, early 60's, starring Leslie Caron, is remarkable. Brock Peters is great as well. Story unfolds slowly with unexpected turns.

Can we talk t.v. here? Only two more days until D. Abbey season three begins. Anyone else a fan? My prediction is that the IRA guy lasts all of two episodes before being gunned down in the Easter Rising. This will force the prettiest cast member back under Lord Grantham's roof. Have a bone to pick with show's Brit writers in that this drama's villians are an Irish woman and a gay man. Wait a minute. That's my house.

Somebody here recommended 'El Topo'....gave it a spin last night, but couldn't finish it. I'm all about the surreal, but that one was just too over the top for my simple mind.

I'd love to hear the view of someone who knows cinema really well on the significance and meanings behind that one.

For stay-at-home New Year's Eve I bought the first two seasons of Downton Abbey.
Them Brits do know how to do some things right. In fact, bloody well right.

Narnia, care of my 6 year old son, at least I get to see the awesome landscape of Castle Hill, NZ and it's certainly better than Sponge bob!

Just saw "The Fall". Probably the greatest movie ever made with the only
possible exception being "El Topo". It grossed $3.2 million worldwide.
But then people didn't get van Gogh either. Dostoevsky, Beethoven, and
Mozart all died penniless. It's a pattern.

S.Leeper, what are your favorite time travel movies? i'm a huge fan of em, i liked Looper quite a bit and Primer is one of my favorites. seen the usual ones..time bandits, 12 monkeys, etc.

watched Moonrise Kingdom. typical Wes Anderson fare, if you're a fan. didn't like it as much as The Royal Tennenbaums or This Aquatic Life but i'll probably watch it again.

watching Argo tonight. then i have The Fantastic Mr. Fox on que for more Wes Anderson nuttiness.

btw, thanks to Reilly for recommending The Fall. it's been on my radar for a while but i'd forgotten about it. i watched it recently and really loved it. the little girl who played Alexandria was awesome, as were all the sets.

I thought Looper was pretty damn good. But Im not a ime travel snob. ;)

Prometheus was good, but lots of unanswered and unexplained questions linger. The story didn't feel complete.
