My queue was rearranged, so last nights viewing was Crank. For an action film, Bravo! Read the comments at the link.

Sunshine

It had its flaws, but I very much liked it. Did I mention it had flaws? Because it had a great bunch of them. Almost ruined the experience. But still, great movie.

Shooter

Enjoyable enough action movie about the worlds greatest sniper who gets framed for an assasination and seeks revenge.

I assume they are hoping to turn Swagger (Mark Whalberg) into the new Bourne with a series of movies. Unfortunatly it has none of the charm of the bourne movies.

I've seen it described as the NRA's dream movie where the law of the west means shooting everyone who has wronged you with no consequences.

It was OK.

Just got back from VACANCY. It was creepy and surreal...and it was directed by an authentic Nimrod!! Actually, it DID have me on the edge of my seat, with many twists. The weakest part was the ending, there was very little payoff after everything that had come before it.

Recent films:

Amelie - I loved every single bit of it. (Perhaps I already mentioned it in this thread, but I can't be bothered to check.) Sadly, originally, years ago... when I heard of Amelie and how "Amelie will change your life!", I thought the movie was about a weird psycho killer. Nothing could be farther from the truth, and now I feel somehow sad and embarrassed.

INLAND EMPIRE - Oh my god what a film.

"Equilibirum", well not really. After about fifty or so minutes I switched channels. You do the maths.

I didn't like that movie either, but people I come in contact with seem to like it for some reason. I gave it points for trying, but it was just poorly put together.

Last night I watched - Peaceful Warrior

I saw the trailer at www.apple.com/trailers and was really impressed!

Now that I've seen the movie I don't now whether I like it or not...

Too many questions haven been left unanswered but then again, if you've seen the movie and understood it you actually shouldn't be bothered by the unanswered questions...

I am

Spoiler:
The thing I'm talking about is the Socrates' jump. How did he do it? Also, when he pushes Dan off the bridge, you see him standing down the bridge. It took him less than a second... I need to know!

Hm.... Haven't seen it in ages, but I wish I had.

Hey, don't dis Equilibrium... the guy had $30mil to work with, which is rather little for a sci-fi movie. He did well with what he had. If you really want to see a shite movie, you should try the director's second effort, "Ultraviolet". (for some reason I nearly typed "Aquavelva")

The Last King of Scotland

Great movie about Idi Amin. Was really good watch. Forest Whitaker did impressive job as Amin.

Pfft, Roger Corman in his heydays could've "made a film about the fall of the Roman empire with two extras and a bush." (Cameron quote)

Also, happy birthday Jack Nicholson. I'm a little late, but he's always been my man.

nr. 6 - Casablanca

Number one love story of all time, isn't it?

8/10

There's a lot of great things with this movie, the direction is superb, and the dialogue is very well written. What drags it down for me, is that I think Humphrey Bogart is a quite boring actor. There's just nothing special about him, and I wasn't even near crying through-out the movie, and I cry at almost everything.. (Lady and the Tramp made me cry last night..)

A Night at the Roxburry - at least it wasn't offensively bad.

A Knight's Tale - the trailer made me think this was a horrible movie, but I heard that it's meant to be a comedy. It turned out sort of good for the movie it was meant to be.

Finally got to see Hot Fuzz (last Friday, actually)! It was really good. The style reminded me a lot more of Spaced than Shaun of the Dead did. The ending especially felt a lot like "Gone" (the episode from the second season with the 'shootout'). Overall, I was quite pleased with the film.

That's a bad thing? I hate movies that make me cry.
