Seven Psychopaths - I kinda like the self-referential nature of the movie. It's a bit like the Charlie Kaufman one, Adaptation, except I think that was done a lot better. This movie is pretty scattershot and varies wildly in tone but I laughed a few times. In Bruges was a lot to live up to though.

Restless - A Gus van Sant film featuring Mia Wasikowska as a girl with terminal Hollywood cancer, i.e. she shows no symptoms whatsoever until right at the end. Weird extra feature on the disc: a silent version of the movie with title cards and everything. They actually shot silent takes specifically for this purpose.

A great movie! That character is one of the best femme fatales ever. Fiorentino never really hit it big; rumours abound that she's difficult to work with!

^Not sure what happened with my post above...

I saw Les Miserabales a few days ago. Being a lifelong fan of the stage musical I was very interested to see how it translated to film and I cam away quite impressed overall. There are some quibbles (more on that in a minute) but Hugh Jackman really impressed me as Valjean. Other standouts were Anne Hatahway, Eddie Redmayne and Samatha Barks. I felt that Russell Crowe was completely miscast. His voice was wrong for it, and he didn't seem invested in the action in any discernible way. I'd been hoping at the very least for a well acted Javert from him and I was disappointed in that regard. Amanda Seyfried was OK as Cosette. It's a rather thankless role but she did what she needed to there. I'm not a fan of her voice in a legit soprano role (it's fine in Mamma Mia, and elsewhere) either. But she didn't stick out like a sore thumb for me in the same way that Russell Crowe did. I was also thrilled to see Colm Wilkinson (who created the role of Jean Valjean onstage) in a small role as the Bishop. For most of the cast singing live on set seemed to allow them to act more than they might have otherwise, and take more chances. However i think it may have been a hinderence for Crowe. I'd heard that the close-ups in the film were too much, but it didn't bother me. At it's best I think the technique gave a sense of intimacy to an epic story, but it was a bit overused. So not perfect in my book, but definitely good.

The Paperboy (2012) - I found it ever so boring, I saw around 20 minutes and got bored so I turned it off.
