    Hitman

    Another movie I had on my computer for a few weeks and finally decided to watch. The only reason I watched it is that it was brought up while I was hanging out with friends and they seemed to have enjoyed it. It certainly was bloody and gory which are two things I look for in movies, but the acting was horrible and the plot line was very messed up as in there didn't seem to be one. It was what it was and nothing more. Not great, not the worst.

    In Bruges

    Forgot what it was about when I went to watch it. Turned out to be rather interesting. Kind of boring until the end. The best part was the racist dwarf who got karate chopped by Colin Ferrel.

    I'll agree to disagree there

    Across the Universe

    This movie had been on my hard drive for some time. I avoided it because i knew it was a musical and singing and dancing is usually not my taste. it turned out to be pretty good. The music was great and the acting was better than expected. A lot of very cool scenes and great cinematography.

    Henry Poole Is Here

    Luke Wilson is in this drama. Didnt fully know what it was about for the first while. Had Ben Harper's "Morning Yearning" as one of the songs so that was the best part. Interesting story and some good acting. The little girl was a little odd to me though. Something just not fully believable about her acting.

    I actually really enjoyed this movie. I am not sure who it is supposed to be aimed at as in what age group but I was entertained until the end. The end was a little weird and I am sure Natalie Portman looked like a nut in the last scene when they were filming before all the special effects were added cause she looked like a nut even with the special effects added.

    I cant believe I liked it but by golly I did sir.

    2nd time watching this movie. I liked it a lot more the second time around. I think knowing what to expect helped me to focus on other parts of the movie. Still a good movie.

    Synecdoche, New York ... C
    I went to a Q&A with Charlie Kaufman that featured a screening of this film. I'm a big fan of Kaufman's (Eternal Sunshine, Adaptation, etc.), but I found this film extremely tedious. I went to the screening with a Russian, a Romanian, a Brit, two Jews (and me in the role of Joe Q. Midwest I s'pose) and each of us had a similar reaction to the film. So take that for what it's worth.

    The movie is about death, if that wasn't apparent during the first three quarters minutes the last 30 minutes beats that into your head. After the first 40 minutes, which were generally enjoyably absurdist, the film lost me (and my rag-tag posse mentioned above). There are many great moments in the film, one that is incredibly effective involves Philip Seymour Hoffman's daughter Olive on her death bed and her flower tattoo. There are enough moments to make a couple of strong movies but together it just seems a mess. The individual performances from Hoffman, Samantha Morton, Hope Davis and Catherine Keener are enjoyable in spite of the nonsense.

    Synecdoche is clearly ambitious -- the concept alone is fascinating. I think, ultimately, Kaufman needs a filter like Spike Jonze or Gondry to get his story to the screen (not George Clooney though, as Kaufman complained quite a bit about his work with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind). I'd also like to see Kaufman take a shot at a screenplay written by someone else, though he apparently has zero interest in that himself.

    Scanning through several reviews (NY Times, Onion, NPR) it seems most critics disagree with me, so perhaps it is worth a second viewing.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    It was on "At the Movies" Saturday afternoon and IIRC both said "skip it."

    Sounded very disjointed from what they said. I may rent it eventually just since Schenectady is about 30 minutes from where I grew up and it'll give me that, "I'm happy to be FROM there" feeling but that'll be the only reason unless someone attends and gives me a rave review.

    Pretty entertaining. The hair removal was painful to watch, especially since I believe it was actually done.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    it most certainly was done for the movie which makes it that much better.

    Just got back from Saw V. Pretty good. Not quite on par with the previous four, but entertaining nonetheless.

    I'm starting to worry a little that it may become stale, though. There were still a couple of good twists, but nothing quite as mind-blowing as some of the older ones.

    Won't stop me from seeing Saw VI, though.

    The funny thing about Iron Man is, I have not heard one single negative review of it from anyone. That is simply amazing.

    It was horrible! what a bunch of flying donkey it was! What are the terrorists in Middle East doing talking in a EUROPEAN LANGUAGE "Hungarian!"

    Just another popcorn flick with very little detail to realism and physics...this is one movie which I will NOT watch again....

    Was hoping for something better...guess I'll have to wait for Titanium Man to come out...

    I liked it too. Of course, I love both Will Smith (as an actor) and Charlize Theron (as an incredibly beautiful woman), so that also helped.

    Been a while since seeing this one. Had it more in the background than anything. Plan to watch it again today, maybe with an AoD follow-up.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    I picked up the first four NOES films, and it's been a looooong time since I watched them. The first one is still the best, IMO.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

    Not terrible, but not great, either. Continuity issues started to emerge here. The concept was good (Freddy killing in the real world through someone else's body), but only executed averagely (I don't know if this is a word, but if not, I'm trademarking it now).

    Gonna watch parts 3 & 4 today.

    they do Dubbing in Hungary yea...but in the original English version of Iron Man there was a scene where one of the terrorists was "speaking" in Hungarian and the guy next to Tony Stark responded by saying "one minute" in Hungarian...just seemed so out there

    quantum of solace ... B-
    this wasn't quite as good as casino royale but lightyears from bond at its worst (coughdieanotherdaycough). daniel craig is enjoyable and dame judi is also good. you can clearly tell the stunt coordinator is that of the bourne series - especially in hand-to-hand combat. the action sequences (especially the opening) are difficult to follow but there sure are a lot of 'em and they merge together (though i did enjoy the one with the horse race). as far as comic relief goes, there wasn't much. once it comes out i might get into more specific things that bothered me
    Spoiler Spoiler:
    but for now i'll just be purposefully vague.

    2 was the worst of the bunch - after that they got back to the original premise.
