2012 Movies #136 - 140

  • Skyfall (2012)
  • confidential submission
  • Tremors (1990)
  • Predator (1987)
  • Waking Sleeping Beauty (2009)

I can’t talk about the confidential submission, but I loved the other four films I watched since my last film2012 blog post.

Skyfall is by far my favorite Bond film, and if I wasn’t out with the flu all of last week I would have already seen it a second time in theaters.

Predator is another case where I was convinced I had seen the film as a kid, and realized a couple minute into the film that I had only imagined watching the film. On a side note, is it really weird that I keep imagining that I’ve seen R-rated films from the 1980s? My memory seems to be full of imaginary versions of R-rated movies.

As an animation fan, Waking Sleeping Beauty was delightful to watch. I was already well versed on the business aspects of that period of Disney’s history, mostly from John Taylor’s 1987 book Storming the Magic Kingdom. However, it was great to see it all told from the perspective of people who worked for Disney Animation. I hope one day soon we’ll see another golden age of Disney traditional animation.
