Movie Diary 2/3/2011

The Adjustment Bureau (George Nolfi, 2011). I don’t know the Philip K. Dick original, but the movie boasts an unexpected blend of humor and romance, not so much paranoia about the possibility of a supernatural bureau correcting and guiding human events as a shrug about the whole thing. Matt Damon and Emily Blunt meet cute in a mens’ room. (full review 3/4)

At my other website, What a Feeling!, we continue scrolling through 1980s pictures with a couple of new postings: Roger Moore’s swan song as 007 in A View to a Kill (the closest I could get at the moment to a John Barry nod), and Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning, as ominous a title as there is in movies.
