Watched:

The Plague - Very interesting film but I sort of wish more time was spent explaining the story rather then the fight to stay alive.

Gravedancers - Great ghost story type movie. Liked the idea on this one.

Wicked Little Things - Either you like it or hate it. I liked it.

Saw Tenebre again, Argento really is the best.

Ratatouille

A delightful movie. A small country rat with a penchant for haute cuisine instead of garbage moves to Paris and helps a clumsy young man become a chef.

Weird plot, but Pixar has previous made cars, toys and fish lovable but Rats must have been a hard sell. Maybe not Pixars best movie, but certainly in with a shout.

Directed by the best animation director (Brad Bird - Iron Giant/Incredibles) in the business Ratatouille will leave you with a great big smile on your face by the end of the film.

5/5

The Darjeeling Limited - Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums were good movies, but Life Aquatic was not. Darjeeling is perhaps Wes Anderson's best work. The more I think about the movie, the more I want to see it again because it was so much fun looking into it. It was on the shorter side, but the amount of things he was able to fit into it made it seem much longer, and in a good way.

Apparently you should see a short called Hotel Chevalier before watching Darjeeling. The iTunes link is down, so I can't comment on how important it is. From what I read elsewhere, there are a couple things that it explains, but nothing that's hard to figure out watching Darjeeling on its own.

The new Kubrick DVDs came out today (FUCK YEA), and if you're not getting them then you're probably retarded. Or not in Region 1. Or don't care to get them.

I am retarded for getting them (or at least being intrigued)? I sure hope you missed the "not".

Is that a new Kubrick collection?

I'm gonna watch Absolute Giganten on telly tonight. No commercial breaks, thanks. The best, most bitter-sweet movie about friendship and all the rest I've seen in ages. IMDB entry in English. Soundtrack: The Notwist, amongst others. w00t!

Yes it is a new Kubrick set. Packaging sucks balls, but there are some updates to the DVDs that I've been wanting for a long time, as well as some other bonuses. Fucking October would be the best month ever if school wasn't in the goddamn way!

Superman: The Movie
This has aged surprisingly well. Sure, some of the effects look a bit... well... bad now, and some of the dialogue really is trite, but I enjoyed it. Lois is such an annoying character in this, though.

Frank Langella is easily the best thing about this. And the only way you're possibly being able of getting some enjoyment out of this is if you grew up during the 80s and are male. I'm talking about Masters Of The Universe. 'Nuff said.

Clue

The film version of Cluedo (or Clue as the Americans call it ) A group of people are invited to a house in the middle of nowhere, given colour-based pseudonyms and then Mr Body is bumped off. Slapstick ensues with many other murders and 3 possible endings.

Got this in a charity shop on DVD. A lot of famous names are in it and it's an enjoyable enough film but not quite as funny as I remembered it. What did make me laugh was one of the "extras" advertised on the back.

You know, as opposed to those annoying menus you can't make a selection on.

Legend (the director's cut) has a fairly poor story and execution, but nostalgia and beautiful scenery keep it watchable on occasion.

Bridget Jones's Diary was a nice comedy.

Ronin is an example of how to make a good action movie.

The Game goes too far with the right things happening at the right times. I'm able suspend disbelief for entertainment, but not this much. That being said, I still like watching it.

The Beastmaster scared me as a kid, and today there's still something about the effects that creeps me out. Another thing my opinion hasn't changed on is Tanya Roberts.

I remember seeing this at the movies and I was the only person in the theatre, just as well I was laughing pretty hard, it was a very funny movie.

As for recent movies....on the flight from Atlanta to Dakar, they insisted on showing us License To Wed, so I saw that with no sound, since my headphones were busted. They also showed us Nancy Drew, which I had seen in the cinema previously. It was an unforgivable attempt at making a Tween film...really disappointing for fans of the old series.

...Then we saw Stardust in our cinema at home, and I enjoyed it quite a lot...some nice comedic moments.

I've added nancy drew to my list of "movies I'm going to remake if I ever become a movie director". also on the list are Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy - based on the books (since we have a rather good tv-series based on the radio-transcript) and Harry potter as a serial, at least a mini-series of each book.
I know there's more but that's the big ones I can remember now..

Plus an early appearance of the young Tom Cruise.

Planning to see that at the end of the week. I've always liked Michelle Pfeiffer.
