    I still enjoy this one. It has some humour but also is pretty sad. A few moments that tug at the old heart strings.

    "Who Killed the Electric Car"

    I found it interesting although I wonder how much manipulation was involved in its telling of 'facts'?

    I did find it interesting the cars were destroyed rather than sold 'as-is' when they decided not to allow renewals of the leases.

    The Savages - 9/10

    Spectacular.

    I think Philip Seymour Hoffman ranks behind only behind Bogey, Paul Newman, Morgan Freeman, Vince Vaughn, Jack, Bobby De Niro, Paul Rudd, Ben Kingsley, Bruce Willis, Robert Redford, Sam Jack and Tim Robbins on my favorite actors list.

    He's certainly borderline Top 10 depending on the day.

    Little Children - 8/10

    This is a slow, dialogue-driven movie from In the Bedroom director Todd Field about the doldrums of passionless life in suburban America, focusing on the interacting lives of a stay-at-home mom, a stay-at-home dad, a careerless shamed police officer and a pedophile.

    The whole thing follows a fairly predictable plot line (some of which is Crash-level cornball), but most of the sequential developments of the story aren't really the point. The story is more told through the reactionary shots, body language and awkward character interactions in response to the dialogue/events that occur throughout -- something that the director and the acting performances craft into a riveting and clever exposition on this topic.

    One other interesting notes it the narration device that Field uses often throughout, something that is stand-out for the wry/ironic, half nature-documentary/half-NFL Films feel it adds to the film.

    A lot of people won't like this movie at all, but I thought it was a very, very well made one.
    I LOVED that movie, Jay. Of course, the average viewer's thoughts will stick with Jackie Earle Haley's performance simply because it's so provocative, but it really was an outstanding, overlooked performance.

    Along that same vein, I've been meaning to rewatch Happiness by Todd Solonz. Have you seen it? Another movie with a pretty well thought out look into the mind of a pedophile.

    Rudd? Really? Huh.

    I worship Seymour Hoffman. I think he has more acting range than ANYONE in Hollywood right now. I've liked some Bruce Willis stuff, but I think he is so overrated, sometimes I have a problem watching him.

    Vince Vaughn drives me insane. I want him to be in something really good again. I'd like to see him take a career path similar to what Bill Murray has done of late.

    Another good Ferrell movie. Not in my list of favourite Ferrell movies but I enjoy it nonetheless.

    Nope.

    More of an idol than a "favorite actor," but yeah.

    I've liked some Bruce Willis stuff, but I think he is so overrated, sometimes I have a problem watching him.
    I certainly don't think he's a good actor, I just really like the way he plays Bruce Willis so well in every movie. Probably the coolest dude in America.

    Vince Vaughn drives me insane. I want him to be in something really good again. I'd like to see him take a career path similar to what Bill Murray has done of late.
    My complete and unwavering love of Vince became undeniable at the point when his sheer comedic brilliance tricked me into watching -- and thoroughly enjoying -- The Breakup at least six times. Just saw Made for the first time in years last week, too, and, yeah, he's a genius.

    Bolt in Disney Digital 3-D

    It was a kid's flick, OK premise, you'll like it if you like dogs, but...

    The 3-D effects were astounding.

    Watched Hellboy 2 the other day - was better than I expected. A bit more plot and texture. Not bad.

    Well, a lot of people love it, so you'll probably disagree w/ me. But for me it suffered from really bad writing, structurally. A lot of things are just thrown in haphazardly in order to develop a theme that comes off hackneyed and trite. (They try to send this "live your life" message despite the fact that nothing in the movie [plot, character] was about that.) It's like the writer said to himself, "Okay, if we just spend 15 minutes on this thing, that'll totally set the theme/mood! We won't even have to make it relevant to the story!" Also, it suffered from the same problem as Marley and Me, in that the movie comes off as one extended highlight reel of one person's life with no extended scenes or fully-plumbed drama, but rather 10-minute scene after 10-minute scene that does nothing but show the next thing that happened in this person's life. (Where's the conflict, the point? Why does this just feel like a biography? Although BB didn't miss the mark here quite as much as MM.)

    BTW, UB, I know what you mean. I really wanted to love this movie; it looked great. I had even hyped it up to all my friends/family. Yeargh.

    Watched Open Window. For me this movies had "almost" written all over it. There was almost enough tension, it almost moved fast enough (it was never going to move fast, not that kind of story but it was downright somnolescent at times) and I liked using therapists to reveal what the couple couldn't tell each other. But it just missed for me for some reason - couldn't tell you why. I had empathy for the characters and everything. Maybe I was in the wrong mood for it or something. The cornball ending didn't help either.

    Dunno why I didn't like it - script seemed solid, acting was good, can't point at anything in direction. Just wasn't quite compelling enough or something. It was almost good.

    State of Grace - 8/10

    I'd never even heard of this until it came on IFC today. It's about an Irish crime family in Hell's Kitchen, New York, and features some stellar performance from Sean Penn, Ed Harris and, particularly, Gary Oldman, whose character here might now be my favorite of his aside from Drexl Spivey in True Romance. It has a lot of the common gangster flick themes going on, but is really just a very solid film all-around. Maybe I'm out of the loop and just hadn't heard about it, but I'm surprised it doesn't get more play -- especially from the Boondock Saints and The Departed fans. Must have just fell through the cracks, I guess. Either way, just an all-star cast who are firing on all cylinders along with an intriguing story. Great ending, too. Meanwhile, I forgot how much of a fox Robin Wright Penn is. I'm thinking this film is where they met.

    Bottle Rocket - 8/10


    Still my favorite Wes Anderson joint.
