More movies

Posted: December 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

Added a few more movies to the “Seen It” category this weekend. With my being on break for the next two weeks, I will probably add to this list over the next few days. We’ll see how that goes. Quick thoughts on the recent additions:

 

Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol: A

Simply put, this one is fantastic. Got to see it in IMAX on Friday night and it was well worth the extra few dollars. The scope is huge and the action set pieces are amazing. Should see some technical Oscar nominations coming its way, especially in sound categories.

 

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows: B+

Not quite as fun as the first time, but still worth seeing. Robert Downey, Jr is great again, as is the rest of the cast. Yet another twist of a yarn, even if the ending isn’t exactly unexpected.

 

Young Adult: A-

Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman get back together after the success that was Juno. This one isn’t nearly as light-hearted as their first time around, but it is rather engaging. The way that Cody weaves her symbols throughout the story is rather incredible, and the idea of feeling stuck in a state of arrested development is one that I’m pretty sure that a lot of people can relate to (or at least I can).

 

Still waiting on a few others (namely Melancholia, Dragon Tattoo, and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) before I can make my final list for 2011. It’s coming though.
