I watched Grindhouse: Planet Terror

Wow, it's been a while I watched a Zombie movie. Either way, I never seen good one as this. Tarantino was involved and playing a role of rapist as well. Brillaint flick on it's own way and purposely especially near end very over the top for laughs.

If you can't watch the gore bits you should stay away, but otherwise I'd recommend this for everyone for some -literally- brainless action and funnies.

I saw Persepolis today, a story of a girl growing up in Iran in the 1970s-1980s. I really recommend it. It was an amazingly beautiful, sad story that made me want to get the graphic novels as well. I had also been mostly oblivious to what had happened in Iran. The great terrible wars of my childhood were wars in Bosnia and Kosovo.

The Third Man - great cinematography and film making in general, but the story itself wasn't my thing.

Watched:

Flight of the Living Dead: This was a damn good flick. The claustrophobic feel of the plane coupled with turbo zombies really set it's own mood. I think I'll actually buy this movie.

Last night very late I watched a very fine little film called 'reign over me' starring Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle. Adam Sandler proves in this movie that he can act. And what a great actor he is. I thought it was a movie about two guys friendship, finding each other after a very long time. This film (or movie) is so much more...it even reaches backwards in time. I won't say anything more since you shall see this movie to understand of what I'm talking.

As sidenote, Adam's character is playing 'shadow of the colossus' in this film.
If you watch the film, you will agree that this also says something about how Adam's character evolves throughout the film.

Speaking of danish movies (never heard of Prag though), have you seen Princess? It seems really interesting, mixing anime with live-action and dealing with really harsh subjects.

The Reaping

OK horror movie. Not as cleverly twisty as it thinks it is but has some very nice set pieces and decent acting from all the leads. Not something I'd hurry to see again but definitely worth a look if you just want an enjoyable but not too taxing horror with some nice special effects. Has some basis on the plagues of Egypt (from the Bible) and one nice monologue from the lead detailing a brief scientific round-up of what could have caused them. A DVD extra sort of promised to expand on this but didn't really do the job.

Sunshine

Like the concept (the sun is dying. The movie follows a crew sent to reignite it) Sadly they couldn't stick with this story and the struggles of the crew to survive in this harsh environment to reach their goal (which IMHO has plenty of scope). Instead they decide to tack on a highly implausible horror plot that destroyed my suspension of disbelief. Worse, Danny Boyle, uses this subplot as an excuse to slam in a load of the shaky out-of-focus shots he so loved in 28 days later. I'm sure he considers them clever and arty but after a while they are just plain aggravating.

Amusing casting choice. The crew sent to make the sun "Flame On!" contains the Human Torch from the Fantastic 4 films.

I... I.. I'd give my life to be dead!

Weird coincidence, I found it lying on the shelves and started watching it for the first time in three or so years. That movie's full of quoteable stuff like that.

The best scene in the movie is when he is going to be castrated. Oooouch!

28 Weeks Later: Awesome. Better than the first? Yes, I thought so. I'd watch it again... soon.

Am I the only one who thought it wasn't nearly as good as the first one??? Still decent though for a direct and unnecessary sequel.

In my mind 28 Days Later very clearly consists of two parts: Before The Military Base and After The Military Base. I never quite could put my fingers on why it does, but while the first part is super oppressive, the second part comes with extra cheese...

Uhm, What Women Want. Don't even dare to ask.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut

It's still Blade Runner. If you like the movie, you'll like this version of it. If you haven't seen it, this is probably the version to see. The differences aren't that important, though.

The Wedding Date
I wasn't going to watch it in the first place but ended up doing so because of the handsome actor Dermot Mulroney.

I think I had seen it at the tender age of six or someting alredy, but trust me, back then it didn't make all that much sense to me: The Great Dictator. To anybody who likes to impress with their l77t German skillz but in reality barely knows a single word, except for maybe Sauerkreit, oh, and Wiener Schnitzel: Learn from the greats. Learn from Mr. Chaplin. Seriously, that's... that's incredible.
