Patriots: the End of the Dynasty
Under the Tuscan Sun. Pretty good movie. Of course, getting to watch Diane Lane is never a bad thing. I know its a total chick movie, but I really enjoyed it. Makes us want to take a trip there.
"The Brothers Grimm"
Not very good. Don't rent it.
"The Transporter 2"
Okay. I liked the first one better. Statham sure knows his martial arts, but most of the crap in the movie was outlandish and totally unbelievable.
"Waking Life". Cool...deep in to some heavy philosophy, but cool. Have a beer and enjoy the visuals.
Glory Road. I loved it. The only thing I would have changed was have Ashley Judd play Don Haskins' wife.
For those of you who haven't seen the movie make sure you stay for the credits. They show commentary from Don Haskins, Pat Riley, and several of the Texas Western players.
Finally, a message from Kegboy: For those of you who have seen the movie did you notice that Willie Worsley brought the ball up the court and he wasn't even the point guard. Bobby Joe Hill was.
Underworld: Evolution - brings the story from the first movie to its logical conclusion. I liked the mythos that the first movie created, and while this one doesn't add a whole lot, it stays true to the setting. I enjoyed myself until the last half hour or so, which felt really rushed.
I really enjoyed it. Beckinsale is hot in the skin-tight outfit, but there is more to the movie than that...haha...
And yes, the ending felt very rushed, but if they made it any longer more people would complain...
I'll be buying this one when it comes out on DVD.
"Man-Thing", awfull, don't rent or buy it!

a pal and i just caught the last 20 minutes of "Soylent Green"....anybody seen it? i thought it was really good, at least the last 20 minutes we saw. Charleton Heston stars.
reminded me of "Logan's run" when i first flipped the channel and saw it on. although i didn't think they were much alike, it still made me think of it.

The Brad Pitt / Angelina Jolie version.
Blah. Nonsense plot, nonsense action. Everything is completely implausible.

Watch this movie. Now.
I just watched Kong last night and loved it. I dont understand why there is not more positive responce to this film. It was excellent.
then: adverb - at that time; at the time in question
than: conjunction & preposition - introducing the second element in a comparison
It was late, I couldn't sleep, and there was nothing good on TV.
The Touch of Satan
Anyway, I saw Underworld 2. It was pretty good. I don't remember if I saw the 1st or not though.
"Broken Flowers". Is that how it's supposed to end or did they just run out of money?
I do enjoy minimalistic films, but this one was not well done. I'm a big fan of Murray, but this one was made without a purpose. Sure, the critics say its about the Journey and not the resolution, i however vehemently disagree

Pearl Harbor! I that movie. It's one of my favorites!
2007 Super Bowl XLI Champions!
Haven't seen March of the Penguins, but SuperSize Me rocks...story of my life...
I just watched 'Underworld' tonight...It is good, and Kate Beckinsale is SMOKIN' hot...Way hotter than in Pearl Harbor...Nice to see the range she has also. Will have to watch 'Underworld 2" now....
I read somewhere that she fired more rounds in the first one than any female has ever fired in a movie before...
RESIDENT COUNTING THREAD PHILOSOPHIZER
We went and saw Glory Road today. It is a very good movie. Well acted and it told the story very well. A must see for everyone, especially people that don't know what the culture was like at that time.
Did quite a good job at keeping it interesting, considering the main characters were sitting in the same place for the majority of the first two acts. Better than Phone Booth anyway. The ending was rather standard fare though.
Chunk of concrete
The New World. If you didn't like The Thin Red Line, you'll hate this.
I thought this review summarized it pretty well:
"The New World" is a masterpiece. It's also a little bit boring. It's dull and then dazzling, dull and then brilliant, dull and then awe-inspiring. It lulls viewers into a pleasant trance and then interrupts that trance at frequent intervals for some of the best filmmaking imaginable -- some of it beyond imagining.
In his Nobel acceptance speech, Ernest Hemingway said that to do something truly great a writer must drive himself "far out past where he can go, out to where no one can help him." Frankly, I find it impossible to imagine how Malick made this movie, how he saw it in his head, how he put it together, how he dared hope he could succeed artistically. How did he know that when he put this film together it would even make sense? It's rare in commercial cinema for a director to go this far out, to that no-man's land that Hemingway described. It's yet more rare for one to come back with something this beautiful.
