Midnight in Paris is not Allen's best, that is still held by Annie Hall. It's good to see Allen back in the Best Picture field, where he probably was snubbed for Match Point. Anyhow, this is a comedy to the utmost degree, with more laughs and chuckles than Bridesmaids. This might be an Allen rehash of The Purple Rose of Cairo, but this is still one of the best movies of the year. 'B+', and you can see it listed on 'Chinese Appease'.
My favorite scene is probably when Owen Wilson's Gil takes his fiancee to see the time portal, and Inez is just waiting and waiting. It's very funny and brought the biggest smile to my face on any film of the last year.
BEST PERFORMANCE: Corey Stoll as Ernest Hemingway. His performance was almost like a drunkard, snobby, but a dash of brilliance. He was a picture of the era, and I'm amazed SAG didn't recognize him.
Let this blog be home plate for my thoughts on Moneyball.
