So I've been to the movies twice this month, and did not see a single explosion during the nearly 4 hours I spent there.
When a friend of mine said I should go see this movie, I was a bit skeptical as to the premise: Ballerina goes insane; the tagline: "See Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis make hot lesbian sex" did little to allay my suspicions going into the movie. Despite, or possibly a bit because of the second, these points I went to see it, and was frankly a bit amazed. It's an extremely well done psychological horror, the main character loses her grasp with reality almost as fast as a protagonist in a Lovecraft story.
Also, the CGI is well done, supports the story and doesn't destroy you suspension of disbelief, and the music supports the story extremely well, and there's not really any moment where you're thinking to yourself "wtf? Why are they playing "I love you" while she's screaming at someone about how much she hates them." Which, when you think about it shouldn't be a plus, except there's far too many times where someone in the production of the movie was smoking crack and ended up putting music to a scene that has no right being there.
The King's Speech
So this movie has apparently been out for more than a month now, and the first thing I heard about it was at the coffee machine at work. There was something going on about the Prince and what'serface, and then a brief 30 sec spiel about the movie in the middle of the story. At that same moment a lady said "Oh that was such a good movie, you really need to see it!" Now, I've never even meet this women before, but you know, I'm a sport, so knowing nothing except that I had seen no previews for it, not a single one, which is in and of itself abnormal, I went to see it.
Anyway, it's a good movie, and the scene that most likely got it it's R rating in the US was possibly the funniest thing ever, all 5 of us that were in the theater at the time broke out laughing. If you have kids, they've probably heard worse at school, there's no blood, no violence, no nudity; just proper English and people hating on the Aussie.
I highly recommend both of these.
