I watched "New York, I love you" yesterday.

Since I love New York, I had to check this one out. It's actually not one movie, rather about 10 short films that have been mixed and cut into one lengthy one. However, some of these short movies felt a little weird, and didn't follow the thread some of the other movies had.
I recommend it anyhow, to anyone who loves New York!

lol I know, but I liked how serious the story was, and then they bursted into songs that came out of nowhere, and had me laughing. Don't get me wrong-I loved the movie. But some of the songs and their silliness ruined the mood for me.

I hate double posting, but I have to comment.

I watched this awesomely weird movie called "Dante 01". It was French, and usually I'm not big on foreign films. I find it difficult to keep track of reading subtitles and following characters' facila expression, what's going on, etc. I was pleasantly surprised. It had a darkish science fiction plot that felt refreshing and new. The characters caught my imagination, and I found I could follow the plot and watch the characters. I really liked this movie, and even though it was out there, I really liked it.

I'm always surprised by how easy I find it watching subtitled foreign films nowadays. I did a 'French Cinema' course at university this year, and saw and enjoyed a lot of films I would probably never have otherwise seen.

Oh, you silly English-speaking people

Almost everything I watch has subtitles.

(Partly because I tend to not watch anything in Finnish, partly because anything in Finnish is, more often than not, awful.)

You really should check out French films more. There are several brilliant ones:
Diva, Delikatessen, Les Visiteurs, Nikita
just to mention some of my favourites. And let me tell you, the US versions of Nikita and Les Visiteurs aren't by far as good as the original films.

I guess it takes some time to get used to it.

I watched "The Green Hornet" (the new movie) last night. I had no expectations, but it was actually funny. Maybe a little stiff story, but great characters, and Seth Rogen works very well. I thought it would be more of a dark superhero movie (like the new Batman movies) but it was rather more easy going like Hellboy 2...
I recommend it, if you want an easy and funny movie.
The 3D affects, was rather dull, except for some moments, like some fighting scenes and a scene late in the movie.

Hey, recommend some French movies, bud-bud.

In the last couple of days I've watched: Paper Man, Buried, and Conviction.

They're all good. Buried especially has an amazing performance from Ryan Reynolds, as a guy who finds himself in a coffin. Yup, it's a one-room, one-man drama that surprisingly works. In Conviction, Sam Rockwell is brilliant as always. If you didn't know that, you really should watch Moon as well.

I'm not frustrated by them, I just like being able to look at characters' reactions to things said, etc...and having to read what is said sometimes has me missing those moments. I love reading subtitled games...

Ouch guys. I'm trying, I'm trying. I do read fast, but not fast enough to catch people's facial reactions when something is said, and rewinding every 2 minutes gets frustrating.

Now, back on topic-saw "Being Human", the US version yesterday...oh wait, that's a tv show.

La Haine - Though I should warn you, it's a bit on the depressing side.

Don't get me started on poor American remakes. I'll be here all day and I have things that need to get done.

Doesn't the American remake of Les Visiteurs have Jean Reno (star of the French original) playing the same role?

I'm watching Metropolis at the moment. It's a silent movie and that makes it hard to understand what the people are on about when they're talking. It's also a bit of a depressing film, and it has a robot in it.
