I thought it was pretty depressing.

Watched:

The Devil's Backbone: It was decent. Kind of a rehashed storyline, revenge story involving a ghost, but good none the less.

I rewatched The Incredibles last night and enjoyed every moment.

Johnny English
I can see why this one was panned. It's not particularly funny, and it's all a bit stupid.

And yet, for some reason, I don't hate it. I'm not quite sure why, since I almost certainly should. Maybe I'm just a sucker for terrible spy spoofs (hence my relative like of Spy Hard, I guess).

Bourne Ultimatum

Great ending to a superb spy trilogy.

Excellent film with some great fight scenes (esp the one in Tansania).

How does it compare to The Bourne Supremacy? I was distinctly underwhelmed by TBS, and I know that it and TBU share the same director. Has he managed to tone down the headache-inducing camera movements a bit?

(Sorry if this sounds like I'm laying into the series. I'll happily admit that there's a lot that I don't like about it, but the first two films were still enjoyable.)

Saw A Scanner Darkly last night. What a strange movie, but very entertaining.

I thought it was great, so funny, you just can't beat a good transvestite film!

I thought it was pretty good too, nothing extraodinary but still interesting.

Idiocracy. Mike Judge's 2006 movie.

Just as good as I heard. Mike Judge tells a tale of America in 2505. Brave New World kind of future, hehehhe

The third is pretty much like the second.

Ah, okay. Maybe on DVD for me, then.


Good Night, and Good Luck.
I liked this. It's hardly impartial, but then it doesn't try to be. And it was very well made.

Saw Superbad a few days ago. Really funny script, was laughing so hard I think I nearly broke an internal organ...

Black Snake Moan

I liked this film. S. L. Jackson did a pretty job playin' the blooze man. Ricci was hot, but did a fair job playing the troubled sex-addicted youngin' (sound of many feet racing for the rental shop).

I liked how the story played out and the (some of the) characters worked through their various issues.

I saw Hollywoodland a while ago on DVD. It was good film. The acting was well done as well as the period setting was done really well. They really had managed to make the 1950's Hollywoord pretty well. The only thing I didn't quite understand was
Spoiler:
why we had to follow the detective around and why did we have to learn & how about his family?

Network - now I know where Lewis Black got his shtick. Good movie, with great performances all around. The movie is as relevant today as it was when it originally came out. About the ending:
Spoiler:
I think it could have done without the killing. That made it more over-the-top than necessary, and the message they had been going for had been delivered just fine before it happened.

Watched:

Anna's Eve: I usually like ghost stories but there was something missing with this one. It just seemed average.

To Die For
The person I watched this with thought that it was better than Memento. While I agree that Memento probably isn't as clever as it thinks it is, I'm not sure that I'd go quite that far. That said, I found this amusing for the most part, and Kidman was great.
