Movie 33: Day & Night
This was still attached to Toy Story 3, along with a trailer for Tangled (which is apparently coming soon to theaters). Still entertaining, but starting not to hold up after multiple viewings.
Movie 34: Toy Story 3
This one, on the other hand, is still wonderful. The series goes out on a high note, and I look forward to watching them with my daughter (knowing the viewing habits of kids, probably many, many times).
Movie 35: 127 Hours
The first time I saw this I was the only one in the theater. Watching with a crowd definitely enhances the experience. Still love the editing and sound design, especially during the amputation scene. I've seen more graphic imagery in movies (shot some, too), but the way this is cut together makes the scene more visceral than the sum of its shots.
Movie 36: The Kids Are All Right
I'd forgotten how sharp the writing is in this, with a lot of subtle self-referential dialogue and foreshadowing that went mostly unnoticed the first time I saw it.
Movie 37: True Grit
Another one that was better the second time around. I definitely prefer it to the John Wayne version, but their approaches to the material are so vastly different it's almost apples and oranges.
Movie 38: The Fighter
A really good movie, and my least favorite of the ten. Which is a sign that the Academy managed to get this ten nominee thing right after only two tries.
Movie 39: Winter's Bone
John Hawks needs to play more creepy, potentially violent criminals. Jennifer Lawrence and Debra Granik just plain need to make more movies.
Movie 40: Black Swan
Still my favorite of the year. Most of the elements are done better by other nominees, but the effect of the film as a whole had even more of an impact the second time.
Movie 41: Inception
For a summer action movie the characters spend a lot of time talking and explaining things to each other. Also, the music and sound design that were so highly praised when it first came out don't really have as much impact the second time around. All that said, still a fun and well-made movie.
Movie 42: The Social Network
There were speaker issues in here at the start of Toy Story (21 hours ago as I type this), and I wonder if they never got resolved. The score of this film was less impressive than I remember too, which makes me wonder if that's what happened to Inception. Sleep deprivation may have me rambling about AMC's surround sound instead of rambling about the movie in question, but I'm not sure what to add to one of the most discussed movies of 2010, except to say that Jesse Eisenberg has perfected playing "young man quietly pissed off at the world".
Movie 43: The King's Speech
Two things I noticed this time that I hadn't the first time around: There are several instances of the "have a disagreement, stop working together, make amends, resume working together" cycle, which bordered on repetive toward the end (I had also been in the theater for 23 hours at that point, so my patience may have been slightly less than the average viewer). And it's a sports movie, complete with training montage, only instead of athletic competition it's public speaking (much like The Social Network is a rock n' roll movie with web design instead of music). Neither of which make it a bad movie by any stretch of the imagination.
