    Little Miss Sunshine

    Meh. It was okay but I don't see what was so great about it honestly.

    Thank You For Smoking

    I liked the satire, but loved how it kept in touch with the issues at hand.

    I think it is a crime that "Little Miss Sunshine" was nominated for a best picture Oscar and "United 93" wasn't. The voters should be ashamed.

    Speaking of which...

    United 93


    I even teared up a little, probably from dust in the air or something. I loved the attention to detail (i.e. the terrorists shaving before the attacks). The most moving for me, aside from the cockpit take back and the calls to family was the scene where the passengers are praying while the hijackers are shouting to Allah.

    ----------

    So yeah, I don't see how LMS even comes close to United 93.

    I mean, maybe theoretically. But the actual characters, plot, story and events are based loosely off Whitey Bulger. I think I would have some idea. I live in Boston, have read a few of books about him, and dealt with a deluge of articles about the movie when it came out in the local press (along with dealing with packed local theaters when I went to go see it due to the fascination with anything Whitey around here).

    Maybe there's some sort of plot twist in Internal Affairs that they mimiced in The Departed.
    it was a remake of a Hong Kong film/trilogy. When it was adapted for the Scorsese version, the screenwriter used the Whitey Bulger story as inspiration. but the actual concept was from the hong kong trilogy. when foreign films or tv shows are brought to america, plenty of things change. the general story is hong kong's the specifics for the departed came from the US screenwriter/Whitey.

    here is an article from IGN.com with oscar nominated mark wahlberg discussing possible sequels.

    http://movies.ign.com/articles/756/756953p1.html

    Not Departed Yet?
    Sequels said to be possible.

    January 19, 2007 - Martin Scorsese's award-winning gangland film The Departed was a remake of the Hong Kong hit Infernal Affairs, which itself spawned a trilogy. Now comes word from none other than Departed co-star Mark Wahlberg that there could be sequels (or prequels) in the making for Scorsese's all-star flick.

    "We may do another one because it's based on a Hong Kong film [Infernal Affairs], and there is a trilogy. So we may do a sequel with a new cast, and a prequel and bring back the rest of the guys," Wahlberg informed MTV.com.
    so i'm trying to figure out how its a remake in theory...

    moving on...

    The Illusionist- I really enjoyed it. Big Norton and Giamatti fan.

    The Proposition- Great Austrailian version of a western. Guy Pearce is great.

    Prairie Home Companion- I was significantly disappointed. I expected a lot more, but ultimately it bored me.

    Hard Candy- Weird thing... I can't say watching it was a pleasant experience but when it was over I felt like I enjoyed it. It is beautifully shot, I think. And quite cringeworthy. My final assessment is that I think its worth a look.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    It wasn't nominated for best picture, but the director was nominated - so that is something at least

    Edward Norton has been my favorite actor for a few years now. Other actors I really like: Peter Sarsgaard, John Cusack, Adrien Brody, Sean Penn.

    I have just borrowed "The Illusionist" from a colleague, watching it tonight!

    I thought it was pretty decent, yes. Pretty grim atmosphere which gives it a more realistic "feel".

    I REALLY liked this movie. It's definitely over the top, but I like the controversy it created and also how human the pedophile was portrayed, which I thought was good because you generally don't recognize a pedophile by looking at him, but by his behavior/actions. Also very original and my god ... the castration part ai, ai, ai .

    Easily one of my favorite movies of the last 10 years. Another great performance by Edward Norton, but a really good playing supporting cast and a director that knows how to tell a story like this without getting in the traditional politically correct BS that would make the movie seem to much like a preaching. Really like this movie.

    This movie was easily one of the best 3 movies I have seen this past year. It not getting the recognition it deserves is a shame. I totally aggree with you.

    Das Experiment (The Experiment) a little German thriller that does a good job of keeping your interest all the way through the movie.

    Based on a true experiment that took place at Stanford. Volunteers were put in a position to be either a guard or a prisoner, placed in a unifrom or prison clothes, and subjected to that role play.

    Basically those who got to be guards with the power did in fact become somewhat sadistic within a week of the test. While those who played the prisoners turned on their counterparts.

    As I posted in another thread this excellent movie can be found in (I thought probably the majority, but maybe not) your local Big Lot stores for $2.00 bucks. For something different this is worth seeking out.

    Saw a documentary on that experiment in a sociology class. Very, very interesting.

    The Illusionist. Quite good. Although magic tricks lose much of their impact when they're on a movie screen.

    HAPPY FEET - had low expectations going into it...and happy to say they were met. It wasn't as good as the other CGI movies I've seen lately...but if you like musicals....then it might be worth a look

    Saw III - I liked some of it, but it is largely "torture porn" with the gore and just for how twisted the violence is. Some of it in this one is just silly though.

    Borat - Pretty funny. I don't worship it like some seem to (speaking generally from what I hear/read across the 'net), but I laughed several times.

    My wife and i just finished a SAW triple header. She loves the movies, so i got her all 3 for her birthday. The third one was very different from the first 2, but the end did tie tham all together. At least these movies had the theme of people having choices and having to pay for making the wrong ones. While the paying was a little over the top, at least there was some point to it.

    Last night any new releases I might have been interested in were out so I went in search of some older movies including It's All About Love

    Joaquin Phoenix, Sean Penn and Claire Danes - can't be bad, right?

    It wasn't bad - it was terrible. Supposedly it won some awards - I hope one was a Razzy. The most exciting scene was watching ice freeze in a glass.

    And my GF's comment was, "I'm glad to see that in the future all women will be weakly helpless, universally exploited, mindless, and incapable of taking any action except to be saved by a man." Somehow watching that movie made her mad at me ... I have to figure out that sequential thought process sometime.
