Man of Steel.
My favorite Superman movie so far.  In this case the cliche "action packed" actually applies.  :D

I loved it too, but it appears that the die hard fans don't like it.

Re: Movies you've seen lately - A Christmas Carol (B&W, 1951).

It's Christmas! Time for the Christmas spirit.
Spotted this post in my BazQux feed-reader: It's Time to Watch Alastair Sim's Scrooge. Again.
So I downloaded the 1951 B&W (all British cast) film and watched it with my 7 y/o son.



As well as having read Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol a couple of times as a child, I think I've probably seen all/most of the film and TV versions (though I don't recall the 1935 version). However, no-one seemed to capture Scrooge so perfectly as Alastair Sim in this 1951 version. Really good supporting cast as well.

So:
"A Merry Christmas to us all; God bless us, every one!"
 - Tiny Tim - A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens.

Heh.  One thing that bugs me about Superman is how can he claim to be "Super Intelligent" when he flies around with a cape creating immense drag?  That thing should only be worn around the house like a smoking jacket.  :D

Perhaps he flies so fast that the drag is insignificant to him getting where he needs to go? :P

Could be he earns Sky Miles.  Or perhaps the S is really a corporate logo and he gets Promotional Consideration?

I watched Julia's Eyes. Nice plot, badly played.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Much better than I thought it would be... especially for a remake.  It's a lot more coherent than the original, with some great turns for the actors, adapted to a new age.

Loving Vincent
http://www.imdb.com/...262342/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Animated using actual paintings in the style of Van Gogh. Actors then have some kind of filter applied to make them look in the same style. There was some variation, but it worked very well. Every now and again, a scene comes along that's exactly like one of his paintings. The story worked quite well, it's after Vincents death, with someone trying to deliver a letter to his brother, and trying to find out what actually happened to him, and why he died.

I enjoyed it

I actually saw the 1935 version over Christmas, can highly recommend it -- loved Scrooge, and the very dramatic acting style of the time suited well.
