    A streetcar named desire. Bloated, overrated, baroque.

    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, with Oldman et al. As bad as this is, I can't say I was surprised or disappointed. I got what I knew I was likely get. Director Tomas Alfredson had no clue.

    Anyone who's seen Alec Guiness as Smiley, has seen enough. Not to mention Burton in The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, or Caine in The Ipcress File, etc., etc.

    Has anyone seen In the Mood for Love? I stumbled across it and noticed all the praise it's gotten so I'm borrowing it off an inter-library loan.

    Wong Kar-wai's In the mood for Love? Have seen it, and well, it's worth watching at least one time.

    In the theatre Dark Knight Rises which had its moments but was a bit mediocre, especially compared to the previous two installments. Overblown and trying too hard.

    Otherwise Rashomon which I hadn't seen for about 15 years. Still awesome. I actually got that out because I'd just watched Sanjuro which I'd never seen before. Thoroughly enjoyable, I probably liked it every bit as much as Yojimbo -it's amazing its taken me this long to get around to seeing it.

    Three great Kurosawa films there. Toshiro Mifune is fantastic.

    The Dictator

    Terrible movie. Old humor.

    The Iron Lady. I squirmed throughout this. I was almost embarrassed for all concerned.

    The innumerable flashbacks were a detriment (as they were in the 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' remake). What's wrong with an old-fashioned biography, I ask.

    Revenge Of The Killer Coloraturas
    in which a marauding gang of sopranos kill people by singing extremely high notes which cause their victims' internal organs to vibrate to exploding point. Gross.
