I just watched Basic Instinct, it wasn't fantastic, but it was quite interesting and fairly enjoyable.

I liked the character of Catherine Tramell, although I really did not need to see Sharon Stone's vagina.
Obviously I knew to expect it due to the infamy of that particular shot, but still, no thank you!

To conclude, it was worth watching, but I'm in no rush to see Basic Instinct 2.

Inside Man

Wow. The trailers of this were really, really pointing to nothing else than a cliché movie with pseudo-cool bank robbers and a couple of good cops.

The actual thing is more comparable with Fight Club in the mood that it carries (I found). Not all characters are believable - I found particularily two to be obnoxiously badly played (the psychologist and the "problem solving" lady) - but it's really my only gripe. The movie is beautifully made and in my opinion not at all predictable as to its outcome...

Spoiler:
though I predict bank robberies that are well planned out to go somehow along the lines of Quick Change, and this movie clearly picks up on the idea, but it is used as a diversion only.


One thing got lost along the way, though, the why of the bank robbery. But it's really clearly said in the beginning - because he can. That's enough for me.

Favorite scene in the movie?

Spoiler:
Where he's sitting with one of the hostage's kids in the vault and asks for the kids' PSP, only to see this completely brutal shooter game (and the kid is apparently a fan of 50 Cent). Then follows this awesome scene in which he test-plays the game, getting directions from the kid what the purpose is, etc, and he shoots a guy down, sticks a grenade into the guy's mouth, and then gains distance before the guy's head explodes, which is so ridiculously brutal I could not help but laugh. A lot.

But the humour only got better. Because he hmms, glances at the kid and says, (paraphrased), "You know, I think I need to talk with your dad about this game."

I find that just great - the criminal, shocked by the violence in a game. That speaks volumes. It's such a funny, funny little scene!

I just saw the Inside Man as well, and it was a good movie. I like movies where I can cheer for the "bad guys", and in this movie I liked the other side(s) as well. The ending felt a bit too long, but that may have been because I had to piss real bad.

the game, I couldn't believe how stupid it looked. It was so bad it was funny. I love the GTA games, though, so I don't know how above it I am.

I saw this yesterday and loved it. It gave my brain a bit of a workout, and I really liked the intro bollywood music. Besides, how can you go wrong with Clive Owen, Denzel Washington and Jodie Foster .

Bollywood? I thought it was Middle Eastern, but it's possible it was from India.

I thought Inside Man was quite underwhelming, personally. Every critic talked about how "clever" it was, and how it would keep you guessing till the end, but every important point is made obvious within the first half hour or so of the film, and the so-called twist turns out to be completely irrelevant.

Besides, I don't need to be preached to by Spike Lee...

Inside Man for me too. Thought it was great - a well-planned storyline and good structure.

The scene Pink and Crusoe are talking about was brilliant too, especially for someone who hates gangsta games as much as me. The videogame itself had the entire (packed!) cinema laughing.

From what I've heard from others, the commentary was mild for Spike Lee.
Spoiler:
I personally didn't find the Holocaust profiteering message to be heavy handed. Maybe because I hardly ever hear about it.

The Bourne Identity.
I´ve seen it before and like it then and now.
Did not think that The Bourne Supremacy was necessary though.

If they use ultra-close shakycam again I will walk out of the cinema. What's the point in planning a car chase or fight if the viewer hasn't got a clue what's going on ?

Ronin had the BEST car chases, but with it came the knowledge that perhaps no movie will ever top it

edit: Oh and Ice-Age 1 rocked, can't wait to see part 2.

Just saw Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy last night. I had to read the book, watch the movie and compare them for a project. It was good, but I liked the book a lot better. Something about the movie made it feel just a little distant from the book. I really didn't like how Earth gets rebuilt and Arthur gets with Trillian.

Oh, whoops. Spoilers.

It's light entertainment. I don't usually spend my theater money on animated movies. Bottom line, I laughed a lot, and I liked it.
