Just got back from Enchanted which was totally adorable.

Enchanted is a Disney movie about a typical animated Disney princess (Amy Adams) who, one the day of her wedding to True Love Prince Edward (James Marsden) is sent into the real world by Edward's Wicked Stepmother (Susan Sarandon). She ends up in the mysterious...New York City and her paths cross that of a dishy, doesn't-believe-in-love-any-more single dad, divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey). Hilarity, havoc and true love follow.

It was AWESOME. No wonder it's 93% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

I still can't truly get used to the fact that Patrick Dempsey is sexy (I keep thinking of his 1980s movies where he played a total dweeb) but the fact is his rumpled professional character is darn near irresistable here. Amy Adams is awesome, awesome, awesome. Why have I never seen her in anything before? Oh, and James Marsden? THUD. He has clearly made a career of playing a 'prince charming' type who loses the girl's heart to the hero of the movie (The Notebook, Superman Returns, even X-Men movies a little, though I am a total Cyclops/Jean shipper) and this is yet another one of those roles, but he is so funny and so goofily adorable here, that if Giselle doesn't want him, I do. Mmmmmmm....

This is probably the first American movie in years where I bought the romantic comedy (a genre that has pretty much been dead here for years). But it worked. I laughed and I sighed with equal gusto. Oh, and the scene at the ball? Pure kdrama awesomeness, girls and boys.

Anyways, this is super-great. Go watch.

(In addition to already playing Shoot ‘em Up and 3:10 to Yuma which are already playing).

Here they are in order from most interested to least:

Eastern Promises
With: Naomi Watts, Viggo Mortensen, Armin Mueller-Stahl
About: While trying to learn the identity of a dead prostitute, a hospital midwife (Watts) encounters a mysterious crime boss (Mortensen) who illuminates a path through London's underbelly that may lead to her answer.
Why: Where do I start? It’s my most anticipated Hollywood movie of the year. I love David Cronenberg and thought History of Violence should have won every award there was, so the mere thought of him and Viggo Mortensen and Naomi Watts doing another movie together fills me with glee beyond measure. Add in Russian mob, and some amazingly good early buzz and YES. Oh YES.

Atonement
With: Keira Knightley, James McAvoy, Romola Garai, Brenda Blethyn
About: Fledgling writer Briony Tallis, as a 13-year-old, irrevocably changes the course of several lives when she accuses her older sister's (Keira
Knightley) lover (James McAvoy) of a crime he did not commit.
Why: You are kidding, right? Right? (Btw, my icon is from it and made by the amazing [livejournal.com profile] alexandral)

Se, jie (Lust, Caution)
With: Tang Wei, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lee-Hom Wang
About: An espionage thriller set in WWII-era Shanghai, in which a young woman, Wang Jiazhi (Tang Wei), gets swept up in a dangerous game of emotional intrigue with a powerful political figure, Mr. Yee (Tony Leung).
Why: You have seen my LJ and you wonder? I love period movies, war movies, Asian movies, Tony Leung movies, Ang Lee movies, love movies, and movies with hot men. And this has all of the above. Btw, this is rated
NC-17. Whaaaaa? But it’s for explicit sexuality, so my ‘whaaaaa’ is not an upset one :P

Rest of list here )
