    Mouth To Mouth (578/335)

    by  • 12/1/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    MOUTH TO MOUTH – A loose-knit group of street kids are on their way to a festival. The group is free, democratic, egalitarian, socialist, and more or less sober… Or so it seems to newcomer Bat (Ellen Page) and the audience for the first bit of the film. As things progress, more and more of […]

    Chinese movie update (509/298)

    by  • 10/25/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    During our trip to China (October 12-24) I didn’t really track the when and where of each of these films; many were on the flights, some were during hotel downtime. Most of these 22 films were during the over 40 hours of airport and flight time we had during our travels. Thankfully, Cathay Pacific had […]

    Saw, Saw II (464/267)

    SAW – I haven’t re-watched this since initial release, and Knowing how this one ends does change my appreciation of the locked room scenario that introduces the story. In this film it still feels like Jigsaw is a moralistic killer – he has a very black and white view of the world and is sentencing […]

    The Call of Cthulhu, Killers (393/229)

    by  • 8/17/2011 • film, movies • 0 Comments

    THE CALL OF CTHULHU (Netflix) – A modern, silent, B&W, no-budget film of the Lovecraft mythos. I don’t think I’ve seen a fan-made film that was as good as this. I suppose there’s something to be said for having amateur actors who don’t have to speak KILLERS (Netflix) – Funny, but not really all that […]

    Film Geek (380/223)

    FILM GEEK (Netflix) – I’d swear Portland exists in some alternate universe where people like Scotty Pelk really do exist, and they really DO end up with the girl. If you’ve attended a film festival, odds are you’re spoken with or overheard someone like Scotty. If not, maybe you ARE Scotty. There’s nothing surprising here, […]

    Mary & Max, Brick (117/72)

    by  • 3/13/2011 • film • 0 Comments

    MARY & MAX (iTunes) – Devastating film. It’s beautiful technically and emotionally. The innocence in both characters is nearly complete, even as they age, and Mary grows up. She is nearly as bad at reading people as Max, and things really break down when Mary graduates. There are continuity issues and flat-out errors, but I […]
