    The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

    Funny comedy but I expected something raunchier with Ari Gold as the leading man, I wanted to see the same sort of character but he felt a little soft (that's what she said). There were some great moments, like the 40yr old 10yr old in the film was a good gag and the start with the hate crime had me laughing but the overall story and ending just seemed a bit of a let down.

    The Blind Side

    A movie about a poor black kid who gets a break and makes it to the NFL. Surprised Sandra Bullock got the Oscar for this one. She just seemed like anyone. Maybe that is what made her so good, is that she seemed very natural in this one. It had it's moments of cheese, it moments of touching and its moments of poor acting, but really what film doesn't. There were a few moments that had me chocked up and a few that really made me think of life and helping others but then it ended and I played some Guitar Hero and the world went back to normal.

    Chicago 10

    It is a documentary based on the 1968 Democratic Convention held in Chicago and the ensuing riots and protests that followed. It is based on actual footage and on the court transcripts that took place after the fact. It was pretty cool and interesting, a little heavy on the hippie love side but it was well done and a good watch.

    Fireflies In The Garden

    Has Ryan Reynolds, Julia Roberts and William Dafoe in this one. Don't remember hearing about this movie in theatres and I really had no idea what is was going to be about when I went to watch it but I figured what the hell lets add to the list of movies I have seen. It is about a death in the family and how it brings up the past and the relationships between everyone. It has its moments but it wasn't great nor was it terrible. It held my attention for the full 96 minutes.

    Bewster's Millions

    Old school comedy with John Candy and Richard Pryer. It is about a guy who is going to inherit $300 million if he can spend $30 million is 30 days without having any assets at the end so he basically has to blow the $30 million in 30 days. It wasn't all that funny but it was made in the 80's I think or maybe 70's but it cant really hold up to comedies now anyways, but for what it was it was pretty good. I liked the idea of having to spend the $30 million because I would love to have that challenge.

    Get Smart's Bruce And Lloyd: Out Of Control

    Terrible. I wasn't expecting much and I had to watch this in 3 instalments because I hated it so much but when I start a movie I finish it. Please dear god don't waste your time watching, downloading, looking this movie up and quite frankly reading this or any other review of this horrid horrid "movie".

    Family Guy: Something Something Something Dark Sider

    It was your typical Family guy take on Star Wars. I liked it.

    Still Waiting

    I could never recommend this movie or the first one but they strike closely to my heart because of my former employment (especially Justin Long's character).

    I don't think I have experienced so many different emotions and thoughts during a movie. And if I were to watch it again, I'd probably have an entirely new experience. That's the beauty of it.

    It was my first time watching it. One shot that stood out to me was this one:




    This picture could keep a philosopher busy for years!

    Yup! Very good movie. Good that they basically cut the potential political messages out of this movie as that is surely not what it's about. Definitely a must-see IMHO.

    I also saw "500 days (of summer)". Another very good movie IMHO, but I realise it's not for everybody. Note: this movie has an absolutely superb musical score. Loved it.

    Just saw "Good" with Viggo Mortensen about a professor in literature who rights a novel about mercy killing of his story telling person then gets approached by the NAZI's in 1937 to work for them and his ideas are distorted into something absolutely horrendous and he in fact gets distorted along the way, though he does seem to realize in the end that he has helped create something horrific. A rather slow drama driven movie, but worth seeying for sure.

    GI-Joe... haven't seen it (yet) and I'm glad about it, but I fear the day I can't escape it is nearing... I'm absolutely DREADING seeying this one.

    Seen it before but I hadnt seen it in a while. I liked it more or at least the same amount the second time through. I was able to focus on the story more because I knew what was going to be coming up. Clint Eastwood is one racist ******* in this movie.
    AWESOME MOVIE! I can't understate this. Loved it when I first saw it and still loved it when I saw it the second time. Can't remember if it won anything, but it definitely should have and if it didn't that would have been a total shame.

    Why do that to yourself? I haven't seen it and I know ... for a FACT ... that it is a gigantic waste of time. Tell you what. Any time you feel like you are going to watch it, grab a coat or jacket and a book and leave the house. you will have 1000 times more fun. Come back after two hours and think of the torture you just avoided.

    It's hard to describe. Think of it as a documentary without a narrator. They just compile all kinds of footage from modern life using aerial photography, long-distance "zoom" lenses and time-lapse photography to name just a few.

    The original score was written and performed by Philip Glass.

    Sound boring? It isn't. It is just as breathtaking today as it was when it was made 30 years ago.

    Some people leave this film inspired. Others leave terrified. Others still feel lost. Some leave the film feeling cleansed.

    Just let your mind go and take it in. You likely won't think of filmmaking the same again.

    For me, Hurt Locker was good but I never thought I was watching an Oscar winner.

    If I look at the oscar winners from the last 20 or 30 years, I can say half of them didn't deserve it. Case in point: what movie won when Pulp Fiction came out? Don't remember? Exactly.

    Hurt Locker was fantastic. But it was a fantastic ACTION movie, a genre that almost never gets oscar gold. It won because the voters wanted to reward a smart, genuine, apolitical action movie.

    But there were still politics in the vote. They also wanted the movie's female director to finally get her day.

    OK, so I just looked it up, and BOY did I pick a bad year to use as an example.

    1994:
    Best Picture
    WINNER Forrest Gump, Wendy Finerman, Steve Tisch and Steve Starkey, producers (Paramount)
    Four Weddings and a Funeral, Duncan Kenworthy, producer (Gramercy)
    Pulp Fiction, Lawrence Bender, producer (Miramax)
    Quiz Show, Robert Redford, Michael Jacobs, Julian Krainin and Michael Nozik, producers (Buena Vista)
    The Shawshank Redemption, Niki Marvin, producer (Columbia)


    EDIT - four weddings and a funeral? REALLY?!? WTF?!

    I saw Alice in Wonderland too. I thought it was OK but like those above, I kept wishing that someone other than Disney could get their hands on it. I kept thinking that if you're going to do this really trippy and freaky version of Wonderland, what they should have done is let Guillermo Del Toro have it and give it the full Pan's Labyrinth style treatment. Now THAT would have been freaky.
    Tim Burton and Alice In wonderland were a perfect match, IMO.

    Problem was..Tim Burton and Disney....not so much.

    And thing is, Disney is capable of doing "older" movies..like Pirates, but this was clearly pretty much a kids movie.

    As I really love Gladiator, this makes me excited. I hope it's good.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Is more godawful than I could ever imagine. Worse than Transformers. Bad. As a matter of fact, the movie is playing right now and I'm typing this out because I cannot force myself to pay attention. May God have mercy on my soul.
