Just finished “The Night of the Hunter”

I watched it under the pretense that a friend of mine (whose opinion I greatly respect) didn’t like it. I may have watched it looking for things not to like as a result but I don’t think it had to much of an effect on my final opinion. I thought Robert Mitchum was good. There were a couple of scenes where he was actually pretty scary, I thought. The plot was also solid for the most part. Some of the characters were meh, actually most of them were. Some things just struck me as stupid. It might just be that it hasn’t really stood the test of time. Usually I don’t support remakes but I’d like to see this done again by a capable director just to see how it stands. A lot of the things I didn’t like about it may have come from it being made in 1955. I don’t generally dislike movies from the 50s but I can’t really explain it any other way.

I was reading about this today. It seemed pretty interesting. Apparently City of Angels was a remake but I didn’t see that. Nic Cage & Meg Ryan aren’t really attracting me to find it though. Anyone got any opinions on this?


Bronson, 2008 (Dir. Nicolas Winding Refn)

This is on the list.


I guess I shouldn’t be surprised but Rango was more than enjoyable. It seems like a pretty sure choice for Animated Feature of the year come next award season. I swear it had to be pushing the limits of the “PG” rating with all the death and mild language.

Saw Green Lantern

It wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be. Or, it wasn’t as bad as reviews would have led me to believe. I did enjoy it even though it had some obvious issues. I’d still like to go back in time and cast someone else but Ry Ry was necessary for the movie they did.

Doing GL in a less serious tone was a choice I wouldn’t have made but it seems like it was easier to make than a TDK-toned film would have been. It’s enjoyable for the most part (not so much in the middle) so I recommend seeing it if you already planned on it. Don’t go out of your way but don’t shy away. If you’re a big GL fan like I am, you have to see it. Maybe you’ll hate it, I don’t know. The hate hasn’t sunk in yet.
