Up. I just saw this and was pleased how it turned out, and was very glad that it was much more than Carl taking Russell where Ellie would have gone. Jolly good, I say.

Saw 2012, it was over the top and ridiculous but I loved it.

I saw "Law Abiding Citizens today. Pretty good movie. The beginning shocked me, even though I knew wht was going to happen. The idea of the movie, to have been wronged by th system and want to bring it down, was pretty interesting, and Gerard Butler was pretty good and creepy how he c be perfectly calm massacering someone. I think he's better suited as a pig in chick flicks like "The Ugly Truth" more than the serious role he played here, bu he played it very well, full of emotion and easily getting empathy.

Recently I've seen The curious case of benjamin button. In my opnion it's a masterpiece I've really enjoyed this beatiful and touching movie.

Do you guys know about flixster? It's a website where you can make a list, reviews and ratings about the movies you've already seen or want to see. Pretty interesting, add my profile!

Actually I also saw Up recently in 3D and was rather disappointed in the same way as tsa was. I think it might be one of the weakest Pixar films I've seen despite it showcasing (again) their mastery over computer generated emotions. It had me welling up like Wall-E did. As Lucien21 said though, it makes me wonder what a Pixar film would be like if it didn't pander to kids so much.

I also saw Benjamin Button too and thought it was brilliant. It provoked so many questions about age, love, life and loss. The special effects were astounding.

Hey maxf1, Moon is one of the finest sci-fi films I've ever seen, up there with Blade Runner. Clint Mansell's soundtrack is hypnotic and Sam Rockwell was perfect!

Oh and I also saw Men Who Stare at Goats. I thought it was a waste of my time, straddling some sort of serious hokey spiritual eccentricity and self-parody. It contradicted itself whilst not really knowing where the hell it was going.

While I've heard some things about how they did it, I've gone out of my way to avoid behind the scenes features on Benjamin cause I don't want to ruin the magic. Loved that film.

I just watched Ghost in the Shell 2.0

Absolute blasphemy. I can't believe they butchered the original film like that.

They changed the sex (as far as voice acting) of the Puppet Master, removed symbolism, arbitrarily replaced cel animation with 3D animation for no real reason, and messed up the sound effects.

Even the work that replaced the original 3D animation was often worse by adding unnecessary visual complexity to it, or simply just not adding anything of value.

Just terrible...

I've decided to take a day off today and enjoy it watching to movies. Watched 3 in a row!

O Auto da Compadecida (A Dog's Will) - 2000

My favorite brazilian movie. Nice taste of humor, a lightweight script without resorting to cliches of cinema like appeal to the periphery and urban violence. I really recommend it!

Die Welle (The wave) - 2008

Awesome, just like the original one. Really interesting, made me think about the society we live in and about the power of influence of groups. They should show it in every school around the world!

Antichrist - 2009

I really don't know if it's brilliant or insane. Beauty combined with horror, poetry combined with sickness. It's intense, strong and stunning.

The Men Who Stare at Goats

I saw this recently with my Dad at a Tinseltown Theater. I wouldn't call it one of the best movies of the year, but we both agreed that it was a very funny and very outrageous comedy.

George Clooney was wonderful, and he had solid support with Ewan McGregor, and Jeff Bridges, who was hysterical as the Zen-loving type General. Kevin Spacey, was okay as the Villain, but it's not one of his best performances. The references to Star Wars was hilarious, and I loved them because I'm a true Star Wars fan.

Go see this if you're looking for a Comedy that's not more of the same. It was pretty original in my opinion.

Well friends I have seen "2012".
That is an awesome movie.I really loved it.

With the Mayan calendar ending in 2012, a large group of people must deal with natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, typhoons and glaciers.

No long description of the 2012 plot yet. But we heard the movie was about 2012 movie, 2012 doomsday, 2012 olympics, mayan calendar 2012, 2012 film, end of the world 2012, december 21 2012, 2012 prediction, nostradamus predictions 2012, london 2012, more or less....

Did it mention which film it was reviewing? I think I missed the title.
