The miniseries version was included, but I watched the theatrical cut. Maybe if I watched it one episode a day I wouldn't be as bored?

Yeah, that's probably true. Scenes From a Marriage isn't as easy to watch in one sitting as most of Bergman's stuff. Its probably better spaced out, and yes, the full uncut miniseries is superior.

I watched Good Will Hunting again last night. That's a film that's still good on the 3rd viewing (though I don't feel the need to own a copy).

Well, I seem to be a roll lately, with bad horror films. My latest endurance test was The Messengers. There were so many holes in the script, I'm willing to bet it was typed on a sponge, lol.

Desperado - I love this movie! One of my favorites.

I've watched a few movies lately.
In the theatres, I saw Pan's Labyrinth and The Queen. Both very different but excellent nonetheless.
I saw 4 DVD movies this weekend. Nightwatch was all I hoped it would be. I knew it had received good reviews, and I wasn't disappoiinted. Prairie Home Companion was a bit of a mishmash. I usually love Altman films, but this one seemed really disjointed. Having an angel of death as one of the characters seemed out of place, and a little creepy given that he died after this was made. Little Miss Sunshine was a joy. Even though it followed a typical dysfunctional family plot (everyone hates each other, tragedy brings them all together, etc.) it still had some freshness. The last film I saw was Mistress of Spices; unfortunately entirely forgettable.

I'm on a movie watching spree right now since I can't see my girlfriend due to weather. I'll update with the movies I've watched after I finish each one;

Cobra - I like it, really corny, but I like it.

Quote:
Night Slasher: The court is civilized, isn't it pig?
Cobretti: But I'm not. This is where the law stops and I start - sucker!
Tango & Cash - One of my favorite movies, could watch this ten times in a row and still not get board.

Quote:
Gabriel Cash: Don't you think you're getting a little radical here?
Ray Tango: What's radical?
Gabriel Cash: Blowing a man's head off with a hand grenade is a touch much, don't you think?
Ray Tango: You got your way - I got mine.
Gabriel Cash: Come on, maybe he doesn't know anything.
Ray Tango: I don't really care.
Die Hard - Brought action movies back, 'nough said.

Quote:
Hans: Touching, Cowboy. Touching. Or should I call you Mr McClane? Mr Officer John McClane of the New York Police Department?
John McClane: Sister Teresa called me Mr McClane in the Third Grade. My friends call me John... and you're neither shithead!
Desperado - I love this movie, I remember seeing it for the first time when I was like 7 or 8.

Quote:
Priest: Would you like confession?
El Mariachi: Maybe later, where I'm going I would just have to come straight back.
The Boondock Saints - Another one of my favorites. A classic, pure and simple.

Quote:
Connor: Now you will receive us.
Murphy: We do not ask for your poor, or your hungry.
Connor: We do not want your tired and sick.
Murphy: It is your corrupt we claim.
Connor: It is your evil that will be sought by us.
Murphy: With every breath, we shall hunt them down.
Connor: Each day we will spill their blood, 'til it rains down from the skies.
Murphy: Do not kill. Do not rape. Do not steal. These are principles which every man of every faith can embrace.
Connor: These are not polite suggestions, these are codes of behavior, and those of you that ignore them will pay the dearest cost.
Murphy: There are varying degrees of evil. We urge you lesser forms of filth, not to push the bounds and cross over, in to true corruption, into our domain.
Connor: For if you do, one day you will look behind you and you will see we three, and on that day you will reap it.
Murphy: And we will send you to whatever god you wish.

In the last few days I've seen JFK and The Departed (the latter courtesy of the Region 3 DVD release, that came out today). I enjoyed them both - albeit for different reasons - though they were both perhaps a little too long.

Next up on my random DVD imports list is Casino Royale, since that's released on Thursday in R3 format, and is actually on its way to me in the post at the moment. I still haven't seen it, so I'm hoping that it doesn't turn out to be a disappointment.

Incidentally, the R3 release of The Departed is split across two discs for reasons that I couldn't quite understand, and the special features seem to be different from (read as "less interesting than" the R1 ones). Not bad for £9, though.

Just finished watching Twisted (starring Ashley Judd and Sam. L. Jackson). It sucked, an intriguingly good beginning that turns into typical cliched excrement soon after. Philip Kaufman as director should be bitch slapped for working with a shitty script, and Judd, though a good actress, so totally lacks the depth and range to play such a complex character. I at least liked the subversive views of a beautiful San Francisco, though.

This is good to know. I'll see if I can track down the miniseries.

Reservoir Dogs - I love this movie, didn't think I'd like it at first, but once I got into it I loved it more and more.

Quote:
Mr. Blonde: Hey Joe, you want me to shoot this guy?
Mr. White: Shit... You shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize.
Ransom - I remember watching this movie when I was maybe 10, and I hadn't seen it since. Glad I watched it again, time to get it on DVD.

Quote:
Tom Mullen: The whole world now knows... my son, Sean Mullen, was kidnapped, for ransom, three days ago. This is a recent photograph of him. Sean, if you're watching, we love you. And this... well, this is what waits for the man that took him. This is your ransom. Two million dollars in unmarked bills, just like you wanted. But this is as close as you'll ever get to it. You'll never see one dollar of this money, because no ransom will ever be paid for my son. Not one dime, not one penny. Instead, I'm offering this money as a reward on your head. Dead or alive, it doesn't matter. So congratulations, you've just become a two million dollar lottery ticket... except the odds are much, much better. Do you know anyone that wouldn't turn you in for two million dollars? I don't think you do. I doubt it. So wherever you go and whatever you do, this money will be tracking you down for all time. And to ensure that it does, to keep interest alive, I'm running a full-page ad in every major newspaper every Sunday... for as long as it takes. But... and this is your last chance... you return my son, alive, uninjured, I'll withdraw the bounty. With any luck you can simply disappear. Understand... you will never see this money. Not one dollar. So you still have a chance to do the right thing. If you don't, well, then, God be with you, because nobody else on this Earth will be.
Man on Fire - Borrowed it from my dads friend, thought it was going to be lame. Glad I watched it, another movie to get on DVD.

Quote:
Rayburn: A man can be an artist... in anything, food, whatever. It depends on how good he is at it. Creasey's art is death. He's about to paint his masterpiece.

Casino Royale

Yes, I hadn't seen it yet . Good film. I felt that the plot was a little too disjointed, and none of the action sequences struck me as particularly spectacular, but the acting was good. I look forward to the next one.

Well, the bad horror movie streak is relentless for me, lol. This time it was Hannibal: The Wonder Years...oops, I mean Hannibal Rising. This movie was pointless on almost every level, and I never felt the dread or suspense I felt while watching most of the other ones. No Anthony Hopkins, no Barney the Orderly, no FBI...none of the consistent traits of the previous films. I really hope they stop after this.

The one good point: the Asian actress was incredibly beautiful.
