Well about this casting news I read this morning Gus Van Sant teaming with Taylor Lautner what is that does anyone think he can pull a good performance from the guy?

"What's on your mind cinematically speaking?"

Moulin if I could pry it out.

BTW,Nat - is that Jim Broadbent on the far left of your banner (or Peter Jackson looking older and even more grizzled than usual?)

Speaking of,when was the last time someone gave him a really meaty role?I know for a while he was everywhere (maybe a bit too much so),but I think I'm ready to see him again.

I watched it for the first time at the weekend in a double-bill with Holy Flying Circus and I've been thinking about it since- so imaginative and still timely.

Also,I'm looking out the window and seeing grey skies and wet and it's reminding me of the beach landing in The Piano so I may have to watch that soon.

I can't stop thinking at how wonderful Michelle Williams is in MY WEEK WITH MARILYN.The movie is light as a glass of (fresh) water,but she makes the journey worth it.

What's on my mind is that I'm pretty jealous that you get to see Tin Tin today!!!

Other than that,I was thinking about Tower Heist,which I think looks fun,and realized that it is the first Eddie Murphy I've actually looked forward to since Bowfinger (I'm not counting Dreamgirls because that was an ensemble thing).It has been a looooong 12 years for long-time Murphy fans,to say the least.

Assuming it's here in Manhattan,any chance you've got two extra tickets to that Tintin screening?My girlfriend would love me (a bit more) forever.Haha!Enjoy.

I am excited to go to the Three Rivers Film Festival opening gala on Friday and finally see A Dangerous Method!I am curious to see if Keira is too crazy or crazy enough.That shot of her in the trailer where her body is convulsing while she cries is stuck in my head.

I just watched the Lindsay Lohan sentencing on TMZ and she looked so nice,makes me miss her on the big screen :-(

C'mon Lindsay!!!!Emma Stone is gobbling up all your potential parts!LOL :-)

I'm thinking that I'm so poor I should stop going to the movies but that would make me pooranddead inside - so I try to shoose which ones I'll go see.And it's hard.

I was one of the people who saw War Horse last night,and it is the epitome of Oscar bait.It's too bad that with a cast that strong,not one person gave an interesting performance.

Le gamin au vélo

The Dardenne Brothers do it again...They always move me!They achieve so much with apparently so little.

Vertigo - seeing it tonight for the first time,so my movie bucket list,which only ever gets longer,will get a little shorter.
Which makes me wonder - I'm seeing it at the local repertory's Hitchcock mini-fest,where they offered Psycho,The Birds,North by Northwest and Vertigo.I'd only seen Psycho previously - did I make the right choice?

I watched Juno last night for the first time since buying it on DVD and I LOVED it.It has to be one of my favorite movies.It's just brilliant and beautiful.It made me cry.

Also,can't wait for Melancholia!!!!Gonna see it in the theatre the day it comes out.

Honestly I always wonder about these Oscar Bloggers,not you Nat.They keep switching contenders as soon as the moment they hear something new about the others potential folks,then switch back up when things die down.can they at least wait and see what really heating up before making assumptions.I don't know.....

November 2,2011 | Unregistered CommenterChand

Will you be going to see Nicole Kidman in the recently confirmed "Our Wild Life".Also just going on whatever,do you think she has a good chance to get nommed for Stoker and The Paperboy?

November 3,2011 | Unregistered CommenterLeigh

Mike in Canada,I don't think you could go wrong with seeing any of those Hitchcock films.I's duggest you might want to catch up with the others at some point.(My personal favourite is "North by Northwest.")

I'm still thinking about "In Time,"which I saw last weekend.It's a great idea for a story...but it's ruined by a really awful,pedestrian script.
