American Gangster
I loved it, probably even more so than No Country for Old Men. 5/5

Thank you so much for mentioning this movie. I just watched it, and it was magnificent. I constantly had the "Matrix"-effect, thinking "what, if this were true?"

Interesting that you should compare it to The Matrix, as it's one of the most minimalist sci-fi films I've ever seen, while The Matrix is at the other end of the spectrum... though I get your meaning.

Ironman

Probably not one of the "A" superheros, his list of villians isn't as well known as Spiderman or Superman.

In the comic world Ironman is a Billionaire playboy (Tony Stark) with an alcohol problem who turns from Weapons maker to superhero in a powered armour suit. Stark is a Member ,and recently leader, of S.H.I.E.L.D and the Avengers.

Great piece of casting then putting Robert Downey Jnr as Tony Stark.

Robert Downey Jnr is without a doubt the star of this film. His deadpan responses are very funny bring a lot of humour to the part.

Some decent action sequences, nods to the fans (Warmachine, SHIELD etc) and plenty of good SFX. Although the story is slightly hampered by it being an Origin story, you don't get full on Ironman until towards the end of the movie.

Everything a blockbuster needs and a decent start to the new Blockbuster season. Roll on a sequel.

7/10

Blades of Glory

Absolutely Fantastic! Some might find this comedy bit stupid, but it hit the right spot on me. Will Ferrel's character was hilarious. I think it's safe to assume if you liked Zoolander, you'd like Blades of Glory as well. I don't laugh often even when I watch funny films, but this movie gave me many many laughs.

For me it was funny as hell, seeing someone punch an old lady right in the face always cracks me up .
As for my friends (both girls) they were terrified, always jumping and stuff. People were screaming all over the place in the cinema hilarious.

I liked the movie, maybe if the story was set in USA or England or something like that I would have found the movie boring, but beeing in Spain it was actually refreshing and .. cool , especially since Portugal is mencioned .

Fracture (2007)
Despite the best attempts of the DVD box art, this isn't another Hannibal Lector film (I already knew that, too), but it is enjoyable in a more-than-a-little-unlikely kind of way. And Anthony Hopkins is always watchable.

Speed Racer

Probably a bit of a marmite movie. It will split the audience into love/hate, but I must admit I didn't hate it as much as I thought and actually enjoyed it at times.

Be prepared for a pastel coloured assault on the senses as this film is like watching a computer generated kaledescope at times.
The races are multicoloured, fast and furious as the cars flip, corkscrew and do some kind of strange car kung-fu to stay on the track. There is absolutly no basis in realistic physics in this movie. It really is a living cartoon.

Unfortunatly off the track things are a bit boring, the plot is wafer thin, the twist you see coming a mile off and Speed's family are a tad annoying (They certainly could have done without the not-funny comedy little brother and his monkey sidekick). Christina Ricci as the girlfriend is a cute as a button though so that's not bad.

It is all very fake and pointless. So why was I having fun .

I'm fairly sure this movie is like some kind of LSD fueled dream and any moment I'm going to get the withdrawl.

5/10

I have just seen the movie *bordertown* about some factories in Mexico where some of the world's televisions and computers are made.

The best part of the movie was that both Jennifer Lopez and Antonio Banderas were in this movie.

My respect for them both just skyrocked 200% --- it is a very political movie...

Die Welle (The Wave)

I haven't read the book, but quite liked the movie. It wasn't as powerful as "Das Experiment", but still great, a well done portrayal of modern German youth, and of how little effort it takes to make a blind mob out of them. The teacher was very charismatic, and I sure would have enjoyed this kind of class myself - up to a certain point.

I have to see it, Das Experiment was extremely good.

Am I the only one who is is excited that Argento is making films in a very rapid pace these days? Can't wait to see Mothers of Tears and the upcoming Giallo.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I wanted to love it...I sooooo desperately wanted to love it...but I left feeling sad and disappointed. I feel like an asshole for saying that, like some pretentious jaded cynic who doesn't get the goofy fun of Indiana Jones movies, but I just didn't have a very good time watching it. There's too much CGI, the dialogue is stiff and most of the jokes fall flat, and it's just...not much fun. That's not to say it's a bad movie, I don't think it is, it's just not what I hoped for. I pray in time it'll grow on me because I want it to.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Well, I can only say the same thing as samnandmax said.

I really was excited about this movie ever since they finally announced that they were going to make it. The trailers were good, all the pre-talk was soooo good.

But yesterday when I finally saw, holy crap it was a huge disappointment in every possible way.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

I'm devastated. They have destroyed my childhood. I have to see it again though, it didn't feel totally terrible at times. But the magic from the first three movies are gone, but more then that they really managed to destroy the fundamentals of the series.
