    Priceless!

    Watched Small Town Murder Songs last night. Still don't know what to rate it. I saw the trailer and it looked interesting. The music in the movie was a good fit, really set the mood. The movie itself is what I like to call "one of them festival flicks", as in ambitious, artsy, and the like.

    I'm gonna go with 3.5/5.

    Watched Buried last night, aka 90 minutes with Ryan Reynolds in a box. Mixed feelings, especially about the ending and a few details in the movie. 2.5/5 (4.5/11)

    I saw that one a few months, liked it a lot. Wouldn't watch if you get claustrophobic though, lol. I'd probably give it 7.5 or 8/11 myself. Definitely wasn't perfect, but still good. I liked the ending, but then again, I like at least some movies to have an ending that isn't a typical Hollywood ending

    Is anyone else getting sick of Ryan Reynolds? Anyways, we tend to watch a lot of kid friendly movies...

    You Again - Over done theme, but slightly entertaining - 5/11
    Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 - Funnier than I thought this would be - 8/11
    Rango - Up there with Kung Fu Panda 2 - 10.5/11

    I haven't seen Rango yet, but my wife and I ended up walking out of Kung Fu Panda 2. We were both so bored we couldn't stick it out. And I was really disappointed, but I think Kung Fu Panda is easily the best animated movie Dreamworks has done.

    Cedar Rapids. Very, laugh out loud funny. 4.5 stars.

    And

    The Way Back, not nearly as funny as Cedar Rapids, but an excellent film nonetheless. 5 stars.

    Captain America: 4/5. Thrilling from beginning to end with some terrific performances, great period flavor and outstanding CGI; a fun, old-fashioned adventure film with a modern flair; Hugo Weaving makes a great villian. Docked a point for the utter preposterousness of the whole thing and some silly CGI scenes, (mostly involving scenes that were designed for 3D, I'm sure--I saw it in 2D). Be sure to stay thru the credits for a first look at The Avengers coming in May 2012.

    That's one I really want to see! And The Avengers as well, although not as much since I learned that Edward Norton wouldn't be playing the Hulk.

    I'm in the minority of people who like Ang Lee's Hulk better. But Norton did bring a external intensity to the role that Bana did not.

    Captain America. I was prepared not to buy the CGI required to make Evans look scrawny, but I have to say they did a really good with that, so good in fact that when they turn him into the super soldier, I thought he looked fake when they opened the device. There were a couple of scenes that did look fakey, like the first time he's running after being transformed. Good story though and I agree with srboone, Hugo Weaving made an excellent Red Skull. 4.5 stars.

    Captain America - 9.5/11 - but I do think it helps to know the storyline a bit. My wife didn't grade it so high.

    Ange Lee's hulk for me would have been a 0/11. I hated the whole Nick Nolte Role, and how CGI it actually was, making the character totally unbelievable. While I enjoyed the storyline surrounding Norton more (7/11 if I am feeling generous), I still find myself wondering why they need to make this guy so big. Cant they just do what the highly successful TV series did and hire some roided out guy? I think even with green paint that makes it more believable. I mean, you can even do the Green Mile trick on him if you really need him to be bigger.

    I liked the framing of Ang Lee's movie. Someone finally figured out how to make split screen come alive; not only by using panels to suggest story flow, but by using different angle shots within the same panel. His film was visually arresting and exciting to watch. I also like how the action sequences were secondary to the juxtopposed oedipal complex stories of two children and their parents. Definitely not your typical comic book movie. The Norton Hulk movie was a 90 minute chase movie which is fine, but it was ordinary and what I expected from a standard formulaic action picture. Hulk:3/5; The Incredible Hulk: 2.5/5

    I'll definitely give you the scene splits. I did like those, but at times they got a bit confusing. Still, I don't think it stayed true to the story. Even more so I have this as a point of argument....

    Spoiler!


    ...but I will concede on the splits.

    My counterarguments, Ken, would be that:

    1) this is a movie, not the comic book; and much like movies based on books, they have to be allowed to stand on their own; changes made are for dramatic purposes and drama in books and comic books are different animals than drama on film; and

    2) every few years, the writers of comic books rewrite the origins of their heroes anyway--with slight differences; somebody always complains, but it's still done. How else could Batman have been created in 1939, have a 20 year crimefighting career and still be duking it out with the baddies in 2011?

    And as for the CGI, well, I only gave it a 3 outta 5...
