I've fallen off the wagon of whatever I was wagoning. Oops.

I'm blaming all the preparations for Katsucon, work, and preparing for my mom''s visit. In the meantime, have a list of what I've managed to watch for the first time this year.

-The Road to El Dorado (don't laugh. Although I did need that).

-Europa, Europa. A mesmerizing WWII movie rife with magical realism, if you could apply that adjective to war movies. The lead had that much ingenue to him.

-Schindler's List. Again, something I haven't been able to watch for many years and for quite a ridiculous reason. I wonder if the film is still censored back home.

-Lust, Caution. The opposite of a "feel good" movie. I haven't been upset by a film before to the extent of selling it back, but Ang Lee's cinematography is breathtaking, nevertheless.

-The Artist. Utterly charming, if formulaic and predictable. The plot is familiar and comfortable if you're a fan of old Hollywood and black and white movies to begin with.

-Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Very atmospheric, if dizzying in its quick narrative. it's the acting and editing that really makes this one, rather than the plot, compacted as it is.

-Sherlock Holmes II. I went to see it with the boys, and got exactly what I expected. It was a bit underwhelming.
