    The opening scene is absolutely amazing. Some other parts are great, too, and overall, the story is good. There are just some things that really bother me though, namely
    Spoiler Spoiler:


    Not as good as the first obviously, but it was still worth checking out.

    1950s Cary Grant flick where's he's a doctor with a shady past. I really enjoyed it. Not sure why cause not much happens but good movies from that era are just so refreshingly different and simple compared to nowadays that it's really just a pleasure to watch. Plus, Cary has that Clooney-esque likability about him where you could pretty much watch him read the phone book and it would be watchable. Shunderson is the man. Great monologue for him.

    I just watched "there will be blood" all I can say is WTF?????

    I have no idea wtf this movie was about. The fact that this movie won Oscars just further solidifies in my mind that the Academy Awards are not worth the powder and lead to blow them up with.

    Agreed on "TWBB", but I have to admit, I'm catching myself thinking about the phrase "I DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE" often lately.

    That's the dork I am: If I were an NBA star, that's what I'd be yelling at the other team right now whenever I did something to dominate them.

    Found some pretty good films in a bargain bin the other day so I watched Titanic last night.

    Early on I was reminded how visually stunning that film is - and how horrible the acting is. So I switched it to the commentary by the historical consultants and the dialogue improved tremendously.

    Still couldn't keep me from hearing Leonardo Dicaprio screech "Rose!" about every 3 minutes though.

    Just got back from seeing "what happens in Vegas"

    It was much better than I thought it would be. Kind of predictable but still good for a decent laugh.

    Before The Devil Knows Your Dead

    Wow did this movie ever suck. I mean Wow what a waste of my time. I thought Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke alright I should download this. 45 minutes in I wanted it to end. 1 hour 30 minutes in I couldn't believe I was still watching and 1 hour 50 minutes in it finally ended.

    it almost didn't seem like a movie. It jumped all over the place, was trying to tell a lot of stories and it just failed on everything. But you did get to see Marisa Tomei's boobs for the first 15 minutes of the movie so that made up for it.

    But wow is sucked.

    -5/10 I deleted it off my computer the second it finished. Not worth the hard drive space it took up.

    I saw that a couple of nights ago and you're right - it is truly horrible. Part of it was hating pretty much every character within the 1st 20 minutes of the film. If I'd given a crap about somebody it might have just been bad. Heck, even Tomei was screwing everyone in the family - I'm just glad they didn't show her sexcapades with the old man. Though I will say it's hard to believe she's over 40 - amazing what genes and a personal trainer will do for you.

    Before the Devil knows you're dead- I liked it, not loved it. I wasn't expecting much and seemed to be a little less "run of the mill" than most movies as far as the story goes. The whole Tomei character was kind of just thrown in and not needed, but it wasn't that bad, to me.

    Death Proof



    Granted I haven't seen any of the movies that were supposed to be inspiration to DP, but man this movie sucked. The car chase at the end was good but other than that, wow...

    wow, really? i guess i'll be contrarian and say i really enjoyed it. i'm also a big lumet fan, so maybe it is a different strokes, different blokes kinda thing.

    newman - yes it jumped all over the place but i think it was purposeful. in its shell this is a simple melodrama about a simple, perfect, victimless crime that went spectacularly wrong. jumping around heightens the tension to the inevitable chaos. we see the robbery happen then we see how these people got to this point and we see it unroll and it isn't tremendously surprising. but this film does it in small chunks instead of just letting the story play out chronologically. the big theme here is regret - going over and over and over a mistake from several perspectives.

    i would agree with DK in that hoffman's character is somewhat difficult to emotionally invest in (if you don't buy into the opening scene in rio) until probably the first scene with the drug dealer. but i think the others are fairly easy to dive into.

    once again maybe it is just a taste thing - i dunno.

    I liked Death Proof overall, but my God it was so slow and dull whenever it wasn't doing something awesome.

    I agree, but the movie sticks with you and the performances are memorable. Have you seen "No Country for Old Men" yet. I think you'll like that

    I saw that at the movies last summer.

    No, I couldnt' stand it.

    (Ducking as I type this watching out for the sniper bullets that both Scott H. & Bulletproof will fire at me for thinking this) to me both of these films suffer from the same problem, snobbish eliteism thinking about how American films must have an ending so they go to the opposite extremes.

    Beautiy is in the eye of the beholder I understand and just call me an idiot but I actually happen to like to walk away from something with closure. Or if it is open ended then that is because there is another film coming ala L.O.R. fellowship of the ring.
