Not sure if it's just my lame theater, but some scenes in this early on were VERY dim.

 

 

 

I suspect it was probably the theater...I had commented to the lady friend how bright and beautiful the image was for 3D. For a non-IMAX, it looked spectacular.

Need for speed 10/10 

I'ts a great adaptation of the videogames on the big screen. A lot of fun. 

 

Oh, and watching Godzilla over the weekend.

Chef (2014). 8.4/10 Excellent. I wanted to see this, sought it out, and was rewarded. Directed by, and starring Jon Farveau. Also John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, and Bobby Cannavale (The Station Agent).

 

I stayed for the credits to catch the closing song, and was rewarded

with more scenes, and at the very end, Jon Farveau gets a lesson on preparing the perfect grilled cheese sandwich.

The Lego movie

 

8.5/10

 

Really good, and much better than I thought it would have been. It's family friendly, but has so many adult gags that will keep older audiences giggling like 9 year olds hearing the word "penis".

 

Go see it!

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

 

10/10

 

Easily the best film I've ever seen. Not sure that it would be so for most, but something about it caught me.

I agree, it was refreshing to see Jon in something other than a comedic lead role. Lots of top name actors and actresses casted into this movie including Dustin Hoffman, Robert Downey Jr, Oliver Platt, and Sofia Vergara along with the above mentioned. I got really hungry after watching this movie as the dishes that was being prepared by Jon in the movie looked so good. 8.5/10

Let me just say that I know this is not a film that most would consider all that good, but if you're in the mood for something mindless, light, and somewhat amusing, it's not a bad option. The lady friend and I enjoyed it for what it was...

 

Loosies - 7.0/10

You guys will probably think my taste has really gone into the crapper, but a buddy of mine recommended this one because they knew it would be my sense of humor...and for the most part they were exactly right. I admit, I laughed quite a bit here. I don't know who any of these main characters are, but one or two of them - particularly "Barry" - were really funny with solid comedic timing. There were also some cameos that were fun, so that was a plus. This is the sort of movie to watch when you're getting your drink on and just wanting to laugh a bit at stupid people. 

 

"Someone Marry Barry" - 7.4/10

I had no idea Jon Favreau directed so many movies (Iron Man 1 & 2, Cowboys and Aliens (now I want to see it), and he's to direct the upcoming Jungle Book) and The Office tv series. RDJ was a great cameo, and DH played the cliche owner trying to make the Chef cook what they want them to cook. When he audibly crunched into the grilled cheese sandwich my mouth started to water - also when he cut up that steak. Great food movies will do that - acurately depict food preparation.

 

This made my list of great food movies - in no particular order:

 

Babette's Feast (1987)

Mostly Martha (2001)

Eat Drink Man Woman (1994)

Big Night (1996)

Julie & Julia (2009)

Soylent Green (1973)

 

The last two being the outlyers with no Chef in the kitchen orchestrating the action scenes.

Not missing much with Cowboys and Aliens.

 

You have to have http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097108/   this on your list of great food movies.

but really, does that seem like a bad thing, to you?

 

 

I don't know, but you have a way of turning any film into an interesting prospect with your treacherous word spell, so I'm extra cautious when I read it. That said, this is one of the few recent horror movies that interests me. I'm baffled by the descriptions I've read and the not so bad critical response. Nice review as always.

Yes, Jon has a bit more to offer than his usual comedic movie roles. He also has a cameo appearance in Iron Man 2 & 3 I think. If you enjoy food movies, check out Jiro Dreams of Sushi which was reviewed earlier in this thread. Jiro is the grandmaster of master sushi chefs, his creations are so mouth watering you just wish you had a seat at his chef's table when is creating his master pieces. This movie also takes a interesting look at Jiro's life and his philosophy.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi was a great movie.  Probably a 9/10 range.

Jon Favreau is so money...and he doesn't even know it
