I'm trying not to read SG's post about Paranormal Activity because I really want to see it...my nephew said it's scary and I love scary. There probably aren't spoilers but I can't take the chance.

I went to the movie theater last Saturday for the first time in a long time, by myself with a big popcorn and pop, and saw Brothers.

Tobey McGuire does a great job. Natalie Portman is simply beautiful, and they could just rename Jake Gyllenhaal "Yum."

The girl who plays the oldest of the daughters, Bailee Madison, is the cutest thing and a great little actress.

I liked it.

No spoilers I promise.
It's not an in-depth critique anyway, more me being self congratulatory for seeing it in a quiet cinema!

Up in the Air - "B" Clooney at his most charming, fabulous, crinkly-smiled but a weensy bit tortured. Berri good.

Sherlock Holmes - "B" Holmes as James Bond. Great chemistry between Downey and Law - clever, psuedo tricky-occulitsh story with possible debbil worshippers. Nice.

I saw Angels and Demons about 6 months ago and was surprised how much I enjoyed it...good disposable entertainment.

My next two movies when I get these others back in the darn mail: Paranormal Activity (and I want to be SCARED) and Public Enemies.

No spoilers please!

We saw Up, Epic Movie and Inglorious Basterds.

I liked Up more than I thought, Epic Movie was just another comedy spoof, along the lines of Scary Movie and IB was just plain weird and needlessly bloody, IMO. Typical Tarantino output.

Avatar in 3D (not IMAX) was fantastic! Star Trek was OK. Hope to watch Wolverine by the end of the weekend.

Watched Avatar last night. Very good stuff 3D and CGI are finally good enough for actual story telling.

Yeah, I'm wondering when people are going to finally cotton-on to Tarantino and see him for the sociopath he is.

Julie & Julia: Great! Meryl Streep is an amazing actor, and a great voice actor--she had Julia Child DOWN. Also, it brought back a lot of memories for me--I swear my mother went through that whole cookbook too. (Shudders at memories of being forced to eat aspic.)
