I thought Prisoners was excelllent

Watched Capt Phillips which was intense and also excellent. We then watched Enough Said with Juia Louis Dreyfous and James Gandolfini. Good movie, well acted. She gets hotter with age btw. Shame he left us so soon.

I watched Enough Said coming back from China a couple weeks ago. A sweet, touching film. Both JLD and JG were excellent.

As for Prisoners, I have a hard time watching films or TV shows where kids' well-being is threatened, so it was very uncomfortable for me. And the scenes with the captive suspect were difficult to watch, as well. But overall, a very compelling film. hard to say "entertaining" though!!

'Paris, Texas' from Wim Winders

Still a bloody brilliant film. I always love Sam Shepard's writing, and Ry Cooder's score is spot on. I'm fascinated by Wenders and his admiration for the American West. This German filmmaker who is enamored with the West. Great film and excellent peformances by Kinski and Harry Dean Stanton. Reminds me that I need to watch 'Wings of Desire' again.

Blue Jasmine. Woody Allen's best film since Match Point, IMO.

I enjoyed Match Point, but found the tennis metaphors to be too forced. 'Blue Jasmine' is his best since, well, 'Midnight in Paris', I suppose...

There's a lot of talk about Amy Adams being "due" for an Oscar but I just can't see things that way with Blanchett's performance being as brilliant as it was.

EDIT:

Oh yeah, the last movie I saw was 'The Lego Movie'. Great entertainment for all ages. Several laugh out loud moments.

Woody's on late-in-the-career peak with Midnight in Paris and Blue Jasmine. And Cate Blanchett deserves the Oscar that she is obviously gonna win.

Dallas Buyers Club - fantastic, Matthew Mconaughey gonna win the Oscar. Lose or gain a lot of weight - you win an Academy Award
