By the middle of the movie I'd gotten over my protests about the talking animals and CGI look of things (it's all really well done, but, y'know) and started following along more closely... the voices are familiar and impressive/sad/funny and then I realized they were putting other stuff into it for grownups... spoilers not needed, but one big scene started to develop and it was an homage to other great (not for kids) movie(s)... when the character spoke, it was fantastic.

4 stars, Joe Bob says check it out. 

 
If you can somehow find the extra features and watch the one about how they made it, it's pretty amazing and Jon Favreau and crew developed and used methods that had never been used before.

My family and I watched Pather Panchali last night (got the three DVD set for Christmas last year, just now finding time to watch).

Pretty amazing movie, outstanding cinematography for a movie that is over half a century old.

I am looking forward to the second and third movies in the trilogy.

New series: "The Crown" - about the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II
 
Masterfully done.

I thought it tackled a very difficult subject with sensitivity and in a unique fashion. Great performances. Not perfect, but worth watching.

Watched this last night on Netflix, after seeing it in a list of 15 great movies you're not aware of. True, I wasn't familiar with it.

It's a difficult film: confusing, violent, driven. I'm not sure what I think of it, including its convoluted/twist ending.

But reading up on it, turns out Spike Lee had remade it recently (to negative reviews), so it has some place in the "influential" category. Click the pic to go to the IMDB entry.
Ebertgives it 4 stars.
A man gets violently drunk and is chained to the wall in a police station. His friend comes and bails him out. While the friend is making a telephone call, the man disappears from an empty city street in the middle of the night. The man regains consciousness in what looks like a shabby hotel room. A bed, a desk, a TV, a bathroom cubicle. There is a steel door with a slot near the floor for his food tray. Occasionally a little tune plays, the room fills with gas, and when he regains consciousness the room has been cleaned, his clothes have been changed, and he has received a haircut.

Watched Miles Ahead last night. Not a big Davis fan, but I love Cheadle. It was a good movie. Well done.

Yes, he likes the "centering" shots in his films.  You can tell how much he is influenced by Kubrick in a lot of his work; he often uses the "single-point perspective" shots too, like Kubrick liked to do.

We didn't like this at all. Wes Anderson is very hit or miss for me and this was definitely a miss.

 
I liked "Moonrise Kingdom" but mostly because I want more movies like it to come out. Wes needs to have stronger plots with more conflicts in his movies—otherwise they meander and have extraneous scenes. "Rushmore" was brilliant. "Grand Budapest Hotel" was quite fun—who knew Ralph Fiennes could be so funny? 

Ralph's also in a dark, dark comedy "In Bruges" with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. Ralph's a foul-mouthed and foul-tempered crime lord who packs Colin and Brendan off to Bruges, Belgium after they botch a hit. Very funny if you're in a noirish mood and are willing to handle a few awfully gory scenes.

It's a neat film - funny and quirky like a lot of Wes Anderson's other stuff, and a good story.  I'm surprised I hadn't even heard of it until a few days ago.
