The outstanding story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, told in flashback by Antonio Salieri. Excellent acting, music and costumes. This film was responsible for awakening my interest in classical music. Recommended!
Agreed, Amadeus is brilliant!

I saw the new "Sherlock Holmes" movie for the 3rd time yesterday. I was watching it with Louie and a friend of ours, but I had to go to work in the middle of it. Apparently they watched half of it, then got bored and started playing Halo. Can't say I'm not a little hurt about it. lol

I'm a hard-core Holmes fan, but I thought this movie was pretty awesome even considering the books. But apparently I'm in a minority with everyone about this movie.

I'll watch tomorrow, or the day after. i'm not a Sherlock fan, actually I've never read or played anything about him. Do you think the movie is a good way to introduce me in his tales?

I saw Hachiko: A dog's Story today.

It's an incredible, and touching, true story. Pet lovers definately MUST see it. Hachi was an example of loyalty. My sister cried a river watching to this movie.

Been renting a lot of comedies and romantic comedies lately. I can't remember the titles to all of them because they all tend to run together as they all have the same plot, types of characters, etc.

However, one that stood out a bit was the New Moon movie. Yes, I'm another annoying Twilight fan. I really enjoyed the second movie. I may be 35, but most of the time I feel like I'm going on 15 emotionally sometimes. I still love these types of movies. Ah, teenage love. The angst, the drama, the intensity! How I pine for those more innocent days sometimes. I thought New Moon was great and the acting was a little better in this one. I also have a bit of a thing for werewolves anyway, so that's always a plus in a movie for me.

Inglorious Bastards was excellent. I wasn't a Tarantino fan years ago, but every movie of his has grown on me and now I look forward to his movies. He is truly brilliant at writing dialogue.

I saw The Lovely Bones recently based on the book. I haven't read the book yet but I'm kind of glad Peter Jackson decided against putting the actual rape scene from the book into the movie. There really was no need for a graphic scene. The scene in the movie was spooky enough after Mister Harvey convinced her to go into his underground lair. I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. I enjoyed the visions of heaven after she died and watched her family and murderer.

The one movie I was disappointed in was Avatar. The special effects were great but the story was severely lacking. It was terribly predictable. I saw it in 3-D which was interesting. I enjoyed the movie for the effects, but I just wasn't that impressed with the story.

The Wolfman

It is really good! Not since the remakes of Dracula and Frankenstein (which is over 15 years ago) has Hollywood reinvented the classic horrorfilms. This one does the job well. It moves a bit to fast at times but the film is gorgeous and it really manages to capture the essence of the original.

Juno
best screenplay my ass

Requiem for a Dream
my ex-ex-something-girlfriend will like this one, her aunt, you know..

(500) Days of Summer
Zooey Deschanel is NOT hot nor beautiful come on whats wrong with everybody shes cute with amazing eyes but thats all there is. Now, i get why the dude from 3rd Rock likes her but everyone else wanting to screw her like she was some goddess was just plain silly. Other than that (and the psycho-emo scenes from Tom) the movie was actually pretty good, we laughed many times, just like:

Synecdoche, New york
And i mean we laughed a lot, this movie had even more 'wtf am i high' moments than Being J.Malkovich, and yeah we get why the house is on fire and 'who' is Ellen and whats the movie all about but we just laughed throughout almost 90% of this movie jesus christ .
Anyway, Charlie Kaufman is god.

Star Trek (2009)
A nice and intelligent reboot, nothing mindblowing.

Today I watched the movie Ben X with my mother. Basically, it's about a boy who has Asperger syndrome and is bullied a lot because he is different. I thought the movie to be really impressive and throat-gripping for the first, say, half, but other half, heading towards the ending was...well...weird. I liked the first part much better.

The reason me and my mum watched it, was because she is a teacher at a high school, and a colleague of her showed it to a group of first graders, so of about 12, 13 years old. My mum and I agreed that this movie is definately not suited for those kids.

Why the hell is she showing that violent and dramatic movie to 12 year olds?
Everybody knows kids that age should only watch Little Mermaid cause of their weak little brains that can't distinguish sh*t!
Thank god my teacher only showed us movies where ants drink beer with flies and lions sing with warhogs cause that really helped us understand about life

The idea was to teach the kids of the effects of bullying, about being different and about autism. Those kids are pretty harsh to eachother, there are some autistic children in it, and there is not much respect for those who are different, so the idea of said colleague must have been that this movie captures all the problems present at school. The basic idea is right, just....don't use this movie.

Okay, enough off topic for today

Asperger's Syndrome isn't autism.

Actually it belongs to the autism spectrum disorders, which is pretty broad.

Yes, but that doesn't make me an autist. I've met an actual autist who's considered a mild case, and there's little resemblance between us.

That's what you get with broad spectrums, there are so many falvours, that one case does not resemble the next. I'm sorry if I have offended you by using the general (and hence broad) term.

Where The Wild Things Are
A very strong movie about childhood and growing up.

Shutter Island
Rather entertaining with a lot of suspense.

9
Not as good as it could have been but it got a few really exciting chase scenes and it looks good.

I'm currently watching Departures, the japanese film that won the Academy Award for best foreign film last year on DVD with my parents . The movie is fascinating so far, and it has a great music soundtrack, and very likable characters.

The only problem is that the movie is slow, and my mom has a low attention span. She can only watch T.V. for maybe an hour, or an hour and an half. We've been watching it for four days, now, and we're getting close to the two hour mark. The movie itself is 2 hours, and 11 minutes.

I also recently saw The Blind Side, and I thought it was wonderful. It has to be Sandra Bullock's best movie. I'm really glad she got a nomination for it.

My parents and I finished watching Departures tonight, and we all really enjoyed it. This may be the first foreign film I've ever seen that wasn't an action movie, and it was great.

Last night, I also watched The Hurt Locker, and I was really impressed with it. It was incredibly suspenseful, and realistic. Jeremy Renner was great as Will James. I sincerely hope that Kathryn Bigelow wins the Best Director award because she did an amazing job.

I saw Hurt Locker during the weekend. A very average movie, can't see what's all the fuss about. As war movies go, I am still impressed with Generation Kill (although it is a series, not a movie technically
