Viewing Journal: 6/29/2010

57) MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO
(1988 dir. Hayao Miyazaki) 4th Viewing: June 29 2010
Totoro's cameo in TOY STORY 3 got me wanting to see this again. It's too freakin' good. Like everything Miyazaki graces. It's my 3rd favourite film of his after SPIRITED AWAY and PRINCESS MONONOKE.





 
56) THE CRAZIES
(2010 dir. Breck Eisner) 2nd Viewing: June 29 2010

55) CREATION
(2010 dir. Jon Amiel) Date Seen: June 29 2010




Like THE READER in '08 and THE LAST STATION in '09, CREATION is the cornerstone of period film mediocrity for 2010. The film doesn't offend me in a religious way, I'm a firm believer in evolution and I admire Charles Darwin a great deal, it's just so damn corny and dull. I really don't understand how filmmakers can ruin subject matter this interesting.





 

54) WINTER'S BONE
(2010 dir. Debra Granik) Date Seen: June 29 2010




The best film to come out of Sundance Film Festival in years. And a total palate cleanser for me. I've been seeing a lot of rubbish in theaters lately and this was exactly the type of film I needed! Even though it's quite bleak, I honestly can't wait to see it again. Will most likely end up being one of the better indie films of the year.
