    Not a movie, but I saw the Book of Mormon yesterday. Funny, but not as clever as I expected. And don't get me wrong, I love South Park, and I thought Bigger, Longer, and Uncut was amazing, but there's something out of place about seeing south park humor (especially the toilet kind) performed live in theater with the cheapest tickets being over $100 each. I dunno... everyone was cheering and laughing, but I thought it was a little embarrassing in a couple places.

    7/10.

    Guess I was wrong about civil war... It was actually based on a comic book plot from 2006 or so. Wish they had fleshed it out a bit more though.

    Meh....I publish for a living, and as such, read a LOT, so I don't really feel like I am missing out. The graphic novel category has become pretty big, adult coloring books are blowing up right now, and every city seems to have a comic con where adults dress up like Halloween in super hero costumes. It's just not my thing, seems like a whole generation of people who have no interest in growing up, and nobody is forcing them too.

    Not to bag on them or anything, I like the Marvel movies and occasional video game, etc, but I do draw the line.

    I buy the ones I like out of a bargain bin for a quarter apiece and read them all out of order... you don't have to be "comic book guy" to read them. A lot of the marvel titles are really good.

    If it's a crime to enjoy movies that aren't padded out to ridiculous length; aren't dependant on special effects to carry the thin plot (and don't have soundtracks with the reverb rammed up to maximum to make them louder, sorry LOUDER!!!!!!!), then I'm happily guilty.

    The Man Who Laughs (Paul Leni, 1928) 8/10

    No apologies for posting another old film. I was initially drawn to this one by the claim that the hideous grin carved onto the face of the title character was one inspiration behind 'The Joker' in the Batman comics, and you can definitely see that; although that's as far as it goes with that particular connection. This one is sometimes cited as being a horror film, but it's not. What it is is a melodrama, but with a gothic German expressionist visual palette, so in the same category as 'The Hunchback Of Notre Dame' and 'Phantom Of The Opera' really. Worth seeing. The acting from the principals is terrific, especially leading man Conrad Veidt who has to do most of his facial acting with eyes alone because of the large appliance over his mouth to create the grinning disfigurement.

    Interesting also as a halfway house between the silent era and talkies; the film has a movietone soundtrack which features crowd noise and sound effects alongside the musical score. Dialogue is still on inter-titles.

    The only real disappointment with the DVD is that it lacks the tinting of the original film. Hopefully someone will restore that sometime.
