America is so rich! We had two Bob Dylan's and threw one away.

Excellent movie! Thanks Bolo.

Olympus Has Fallen

Nice action thriller. Keeps you glued to the screen if you like that kind of thing. In this movie the White House is taken by terrorists. Boy, Morgan Freeman is looking old these days...

The thing about these kind of films is it makes you wonder if it's all propaganda to make you scared as hell of the latest enemy of the moment. In this case the North Koreans.

Warning: Action means a lot of violence.

Searching for Sugarman

Won the Oscar for best documentary and my favorite movie in quite some time. If you're on this site, then you like music. And if you like music, you'll LOVE the movie. Best to see it if you know nothing about it. It's a well-crafted film that really celebrates the elegance of the human spirit.

deadhead siskel and ebert....

Okay, saw "The Master" last night and absolutely loved it. Fascinating all the way through and great cinematography. I'd vote best film of 2012, with Moonrise Kingdom coming in second...

flicks

Yeah, Life of Pi is good, I will probably see it a second time. Argo left a bad taste in my mouth because of the overdone and improbable ending, which bothered me even before I learned it was complete fiction. I loved the first 30 minutes of Skyfall- great chase scene and the sequence with Adele. After that, downhill for me. I really enjoyed "To Rome with Love", but mostly because of the great Rome scenery and I'm a hopeless Woody Allen fan. Still haven't seen "Flight" and "The Master". Both look promising.

I liked Lioncoln, Skyfall

Lincoln had a lot going for it. But it was a political movie and without a knowledge of history a bit hard to follow. I thought Skyfall was underrated. It was a good Bond movie plot about a disgruntled agent who got traded for six other agents after being captured and left for dead, then seeking his revenge against "M", who retires in this movie. Skyfall won the Oscar for best original song and for a change I agreed with the judges.

Argo was good, but not good enough to win an Oscar. It was a symbolic political statement and psychological preparation by Hollywood in tandem with the government in case America has to lead an attack on Iran. Look for more of these psych. ops. to prepare the public for an unsettling shock: The very possible use of bunker-buster tactical nukes. This is a major escalation of war in the Middle East that will have dire consequences. After watching Argo a second time I believe Bryan Cranston should have won the Oscar for best supporting role. He is such a good actor that he will not be typecast as a bad guy for his role in the TV series "Breaking Bad". Sally Fields was rather melodramatic with schlocky lines as Lincoln's wife (she won that Oscar).

I missed Life Of Pi as of yet and from all the praise I hear think it will go on my bucket list.

Moonrise Kingdom

I don't know. I didn't like Argo, Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, Skyfall, or Beasts of the Southern Wild. Life of Pi was sorta fun (in 3D). My favorite last year was Moonrise Kingdom. Not a great year for movies, IMO
