So I really liked Wreck-It-Ralph. As did my older son. The younger one was kinda frightened by some parts. It ended up having a deeper story than I expected and a lot less cheap "oh, here's a reference to games".

Not as timeless as other Disney movies, but really good. It will strike a cord with it's target adult audience.

And the Disney short at the beginning was awesome.



That being said, OZ and the Hobbit. Can not wait.

I watched Howl's Moving Castle recently. Wasn't as good as Spirited Away, but worth a watch. There were a lot of things left unanswered, which annoyed me, but overall it was really good.

Ghibli is weird.

Pom Poko, a nice children's animated film about raccoons protecting their land from construction a la Fern Gully.




...that have massive balls and use them for various methods of aerial pursuit and even attack with them:



Once again. Nice children based cartoon about a family of raccoons...



...that use their balls...



...Ghibli is weird.

Here's what I was talking about. Going over the reviews it seems like the main issues with it is that the movies don't have the special features like the Disney releases do (something I never watch anyways so I'm not missing out on anything) and the packaging - which when you get 16 movies for $40, you can't really complain about the packaging.

Saw Cloud Atlas



Didn't read the book, I had no knowledge of it prior to the movie other than the trailer - so I had zero expectations. I was entertained and slightly confused by the way the story was presented b/c of the way it switches back and forth, but I liked it. Tons of great actors, and it was beautiful to look at without being too focused on aesthetics... so sayeth Urban the film snob.
$10 for 3hrs of entertainment that doesnt drag. well worth the price of admission, but we've all seen/heard this concept in movies before (interconnecting past & current lives).

3.8/5

Hugo Weaving is a Boss. The only other movie where he is consistently this badass is Wolfman. I think he does a better job in diff characters than Tom Hanks

Saw Wreck-It Ralph. It was a great movie for anyone of age. Like Bret mentioned, it targeted the mature audience pretty well. There were cameos like crazy during the beginning, but it changed to newer characters in during the rest of the film.

Also, Disney's animated short "Paperman" is amazing. Better love story than Twilight. It has no dialogue!

I'll give Wreck-It Ralph a 4/5

Finally got around to watching Spider-Man. I really liked it. The action was really fast-paced and I liked that part of it. Not sure about a couple other aspects of the movie. But I'm thinking that the man in the shadows was Norman Osborn.

Skyfall 5/5



Widely hailed as the best Bond film ever, Skyfall did not disappoint. I don't know if I would go as far as to say the best, but it's surely in the top 5. The set pieces and cinematography were stunning, and there was a large emphasis on developing characters.

I'm not sure I like bringing those characters to the 'Bond classic' with Q, Moneypenny, and M. I really appreciated the fresh take and newly minded agent approach of Casino Royale. And really I'll just miss Judy Dench.

I thought Casio Royale was better than Skyfall but to each their own. I could not believe the psychopath killer from No Country for Old Men was so... flamboyant haha. Just goes to show how well type casting works.

Alex mentioned that Bardem had a Heath Ledger like quality. I could see that but it wasn't so expressed as it was in The Dark Knight. Obviously there are plot threads that tie in there. Joker has the stories about his scarred face, oftentimes starting with his father. Silva had his messed up face related to his work with M or Mother. Getting into jail only to escape. Minions in every branch of society, ready to help him.
Overall I thought it was a great Bond movie, but I don't think they should have leaned into the "best Bond yet" hype.

I'll agree that it was really good, but not quite on the level of Casino Royale.

I'd still give it a 20/20/20 though. The relationship between M and Bond was so fantastic, and so much of it just went so perfectly.

Dan, the director explicitly stated that he took a lot of inspiration from TDK when he was creating Silva. That's why.
