Damn, I seriously hate when my recommendations don't pan out for others. :frown: I am not expecting to change your mind, but allow me to reply to your criticisms nevertheless.

Yeah, I also know people who've seen only Mikhalkov's film and enjoyed it a lot. What I really should have said is that watching it with knowledge of Lumet's IMO gives the most satisfying experience,...

Milk could have been a great movie. All the elements were in place -- I agree almost entire cast is pitch perfect, add to that fantastic editing and best Danny Elfman score in ages -- except the...

Count me in as disappointed by Let the Right One In. The most overrated film of the last season for me. I didn't like the odd shifts in tone Andrea mentioned, and also how little was explained about...

Star Trek as well.

I really tried to give this universum many chances in the past but none of the shows or movies managed to hold my attention for long. Technobabble and ridiculous science (which...

"Life sucks, and then you die." But seriously, I don't think there was a one simple message the film was trying to put across. Rather, it tried to evoke a feeling of radical pessimism/nihilism (I...

I disagree. "Literal" in what sense? Perhaps if you only concentrate on what is being said, it could seem heavy-handed compared to the rest of the movie. But surely the setting and the situation are...

Clint Mansell's incredible theme from Requiem for a Dream.


Yeah, the same in the whole Europe, I believe. I wonder if this means we'll never be shown the fake trailers from the interlude, too. :(

I admit I may be a little biased, though, because I find Martin Scorsese even at his best slightly (not terribly) overrated. For example, Taxi Driver, while I appreciate its great acting or camera...

Not to mention Raging Bull. :devil:

But seriously, the saddest thing is that currently I am practically sure Scorsese will get his Pity Oscar for this, decent at best, film.

I am sure you had found it out by now, but the latter (and then the latter again: Amistad :D ). An awfully underrated movie, too, if you ask me. Far from Spielberg's best, but not such a waste of...

How does it compare to previous Iñárritu's films - and what did you think of them, for that matter? I almost loved Amores Perros, but then almost hated 21 Grams, so I'm a bit reluctant to see Babel,...

I always try to stay through the credits. Dealing with the peer pressure (or cinema employees' pressure :D ) may be hard, but I think I owe it to the creators. Also, I hate it when TV broadcasters...

That would be Begins, wouldn't it? ;)

I am a great fan of Tim Burton in general, and his two Batmans in particular, but still agree Nolan's film was the best take on "Caped Crusader" to date.

I mostly share this opinion. This was my main gripe with Good Night, and Good Luck, not to look far.

Still, I'd argue a feature film can take you to places documentary will never be able to. (For...
