Post the name of the latest movie you've seen and your rating out of 10.

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds  8/10

It has been awhile since I felt this uncomfortable while watching a movie.

The Defiant Ones - 8/10 - what was the deal with Poitier's singing? Totally took me out of the film... And I kept getting distracted by how tight Curtis's pants were. Otherwise, great!

The Disappearance of Vonnie (1994 TV Movie) - 6/10

I wanted to watch this movie because it's a true story about one of the first times ever in the U.S. that a man got convicted for a capital offense without a body or a murder weapon having been found. Unfortunately it never surpasses the level of the average B-movie.

The Iron Lady - 8/10
Zulu - 7/10 - could have used a bit of a prologue explaining the situation this battle happened in, for those of us unfamiliar.
The Count of Monte Cristo - 8/10
The Man Who Knew Too Much - 8/10 - the ending was too abrupt but otherwise, I liked it very much.

Ghost In The Shell,. The first time put me to sleep. but since I was a little tired the first time I went see it and I was sitting in a dreamlounger in the reclining position, I decided to give it a second try. Bad idea and a waste of money. The second time still put me to sleep even while the seat saw in the strait up sitting position. The film is boring with it's monotone performances. The dogs were the best part of the film.

Personal Shopper  8/10

Kristen Stewart was even better in this than in Clouds of Sils Maria. Powerful, nuanced performance in a challenging role. She's become quite an actor.

Weird...I totally posted this about an hour ago and now it's gone... :\

Ninotchka - 8/10 - Garbo's penultimate film...oh what might have been! Her performance at the beginning really annoyed me but I guess it was necessary to show the contrast to her later behavior. Interesting fact - actress Ina Claire who played Ninotchka's rival ended up marrying John Gilbert, who had been Garbo's lover for many years.
Made in Dagenham - 6/10 - I wanted to like this so much more than I did. I love a lot of the actors and the subject matter was compelling but the execution just seemed very blah. Disappointing.

The Help (rewatch) - 8/10 - a lot of stuff I forgot from the first time I saw it. But one thing I remembered and it broke my heart both then and now was Mae Mobley banging on the window when Aibileen was walking away. I don't know what they did or said to that child (or children - the part was played by twins) but dang, it worked! Tears in my eyes, a lump in my throat.

Top Five - 8/10 - apparently I liked this a lot more than the average IMDb'er.
Stage Beauty - 7/10 - there are certain quirks of Claire Danes' acting that seemed to be heightened in this film and I really don't like. I've seen her in maybe 5 to 7 projects before and it wasn't until this movie that I really noticed now distracting and yet boring it is. Two examples are when she is making out with someone and when she starts to cry. The rest of the film is mostly interesting, and a story I haven't seen before.

Joe Kidd (1972) - 7/10

Trespass (1992) - 6/10

Children of the Damned (1964) - 7/10

The first two were about to leave the Netflix Latin America catalog so I watched them before it was too late. Joe Kidd is a decent western, Trespass is not perfect and is only to pass time if there's nothing better to do.

The last film I watched as a follow up to village of the damned (1960), it is not as good as the first version.

Carmen Jones - 7/10 - disappointing.
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - 7/10 - Best Tim Burton film I've seen in at least 10 years. Remember when a new film of his being released was a reason to be optimistically excited?

Missing (1982) - 8/10, With this I have seen 4 of the 5 pictures that were nominated for the 1982 Oscar. I think this one is better than Gandhi.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist - 7/10 - trying to watch more of Riz Ahmed's movies. I liked it and him in it, but in general it seemed rather white-washed and too unrealistically soft. I wish she had spent more time on him in  the classroom so we could get a better understanding of why he was worshiped in what seemed to be a very short time.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) - 5/10, why is this famous? I found it mediocre and it has nothing to do against other 80's teen film like The Breakfast Club.

A Patch of Blue - 8/10 - I hate Shelley Winters
Something of Value - 6/10 - Meh
Hell or High Water - 8/10 - I hope Gil Birmingham gets more parts off of this - he is an underappreciated/underused actor
