Nice. Although I have never heard of the last two. Planning to watch Jack Reacher tonight. A classmate from high school has a speaking part in it.

SIDE BY SIDE: The Science, Art and Impact of Digital Cinema. You could make a documentary about paint drying and I would watch it and find it fascinating.

Watching paint dry is way more exciting than you might have guessed:

Movie 43. Stupidest f@#king thing I have ever seen. Don't watch it.

One of the most vile, puerile "movies" ever put to film. I'm sorry.

Speaking of movies, I've been meaning to see that Spike Jonze movie "Her", where a guy falls in love with his OS. Looks really good.

Waking Ned Divine (netflix). Funny, entertaining flick about a couple of guys in Ireland who decide to impersonate a lottery winner in order to claim the prize, after they discover that he died from the shock of winning.

Enemy of the State

Watching it after the NSA scandal came out made me feel a bit awkward....

Finally got around to re-watching The Godfather Part III for the first time in a long time.  What a confused mess!  Here are a few thoughts on it:

I take no issue with long movies, but from the obviously pained editing it occurred to me that the only reason this film clocked in at ~ 170 minutes was the rationale "because it's a Godfather movie."

Sofia Coppola, so often ridiculed for her bad acting in this final chapter of the saga, was truly the least of the movie's problems.  Great acting by Eli Wallach, however -- so much so that I think he should have been recognized for it.

Al Pacino fades in and out as Michael... sometimes he got back into the character, other times he's just later career Al Pacino.

Connecting the plot to the JP1 nontificate was an interesting move, I'd like to have seen more of it.  But why did the picture go out of the way to tell us it's set in 1979 when P6 & JP1 died in '78?  Odd.

I was very, very surprised Coppola had the nerve to make Michael mention P2.

About 40% of this movie is salvageable, the rest should be cast into fire.
