Wow, what a great film, really impressed me.
Modern day high school film noir whodunnit with the guy who played Tommy in 3rd Rock From The Sun as a detective kind of guy finding out what happened to his ex girlfriend (Claire from Lost) and ending up in the seedy drugs underbelly.
It also has that short black haired chick from Heroes and Richard "Shaft!" Roundtree, dig?

Brilliantly shot and great dialogue, A+

Casino Royale

I have to admit that I probably belonged to those people that were a bit sceptical after the announcement that Daniel Craig would be the next Bond.

After having seen Casino Royale all that is left to say for me is:

"I apologize, Mr. Craig, you rock as Bond."

Casino Royale, and not only because of Craig, is without any doubt the best Bond in years.

Casino Royale
I agree: best Bond in years. B++

Wrath of Khan
I hadn't seen it for ages. Everyone always says it is the best one. It was actually quite boring and without any action at all! Those crazy old days. To watch Star Trek III or not? B

Serenity
I don't think I was concentrating enough at the start so I had no idea what was going on. Or perhaps even if I had been, I still wouldn't have. But by the end - totally kick arse. A

Casino Royale:
Ha! Pretty damn awesome. First time the audience has been able to take bond seriously in decades, I swear. This doesn't mean that it doesn't contain larger than life action sequences/characters/etc... but it maintains a level of believavbility not seen since 'For Your Eyes Only'. Actually, it's probably a little straighter than even that.

Now, one may say that it's not Bond without the wacky.. but what this film has in spades is BOND. The character. Not the pastiche. Seriously, this is the best rendition of Bond since Connery... hell, since the novels, probably. He's actually a character with actual understandable motivations for once, beyond 'he's a playboy myssoginist secret agent who all the chicks love'. Don't get me wrong he still IS all that, it's just that he's much closer to being a real person in this movie. And he's also something of a complete prick. Awesome.   smile

Main complaint is in the last 20mins or so, when the movie kind of loses the plot (litterally). It picks it up again eventually, but by that time, the fantastic mood that permiated the rest of the film is lost. 'Tis a pity.

However, the final scene makes up for it somewhat. Smug bastard.   big grin

B+

The Prestige:
About as good as you could expect a movie about a vendetta between two rival magicians could be, which it turns out is pretty good. Michael Caine is Alfred, again, and David Bowie plays his straightest role ever...

Compelling, and occasionally chilling. Overall, pretty neat. B

The Insider
Slipped under my radar back in 1999, directed by Michael Mann, journalist thriller based on a true story, with Pacino and Crowe.
Very entertaining stuff dammit.
Crowe is a whistleblower for a big tobacco company and Pacino discovers he has a big story and tries to get it out.
If ya got 2 and a half hours to spare, I'd recommend it.

Saw Casino Royale.  Excellent and classic Bond, although a little light on the explody.  The new guy's ugly as sin, but played the part well, and it would have dragged significantly in the middle if I didn't also like poker movies.  Still, a hell of an improvement over the last few Brosnan films.  Well-acted and mostly under-the-top.

Night at the Museum

I found it pretty funny. Paul Rudd has a cameo-ish role! I love him. I've grown to like Ben Stiller over the years. I never cared for those parts where he's like a total ass like in the Meet the Parents/Focker films.

Finally saw Borat!, and have to say it was fantastic, but plenty of cringworthy moments.  Pretty sure a lot more of it was staged than they're letting on, but it doesn't ruin the fun.

The rape actually didn't bother me that much.  The sacreligious nature of the film is why I probably won't watch it ever again.  It's a movie worth watching at least once though.

Great fight scenes, but the most entertaining was the one with the kids.  If only they would put kids beating each other up on tv, talk about pay-per-view.

Blood Diamond

I only remember it somewhat fondly because it's one of those movies that's so predictable it encourages me to distract myself by thinking about something else the whole way through, thus accidentally helping me improve my mind. Otherwise, though, it's just one big pile of steaming Hollywood shit, served with a side of liberal independent female reporter bitch.

C

Casino Royale


I agree that it's the best bond film since Connery leftthe series, but I was never too impressed even with him. Mostly interesting, with a very special love on my part for the poker scene and the very intense (for a PG-13 movie) torture bit.

B

The Departed

It's certainly exciting (and is probably the first Scorcese film since Casino to be so) and filmed with an intelligence that Quentin Tarantino in his wettest dreams will never achieve, and is the single most entertaining action movie in years. Plus, it has Martin Sheen in it. Where the fuck can you go wrong there?

X-Men 2

Is a crapy movie. They don't even have real black people they do black face and call the people aka mutants. What is the deal with the black faced naked chick? Eye candy for men? duh! The movie looks like it's edited my this man:  


I sure didn't know what the hell was going on or cared. Someone just stuck a bunch of movies in one. It sure don't want to see part 1 or 3 after seeing this shit.

Umm...they weren't supposed to be black.  Although now that you mention it, it is odd that there are three blue characters and one black one in contemporary X-men.

Well you could have seen the movie The Departed is based on, Infernal Affairs, before. And in that case you might be disappointed about the end of "The Departed".

I'm not saying that the Departed is a bad movie, but the end made me think that they were paid a visit by some Chinese censors during the production.

The only way "Infernal Affairs" is better than "The Departed" is it had way more Asian deaths. Am I right, peeps? *high five*

SlackJM: Prepare to be agreed with! The most sexcellent Bond film in years.

I didn't really like the Le Chiffre death, though. Sure, I know they're trying to break the old Bond conventions, but I like a good old fashioned villain showdown.

Mr "Really, I'm not Emilio Largo, I swear" at the end just didn't cut it.

Superman Returns

How can a movie about a man who can cut diamonds with his foreskin be so boring?

We get it, we KNOW Superman can fly, we don't need 30 minutes of footage of him doing nothing but that to get the point across.

Even that scene where a bullet bounces off his eye was a lot nicer in the trailer!  cry

Kevin Spacey and Parker Posey livened it up, shame there wasn't more of them. I suppose Brandon Routh was alright, but choosing him because of his resemblence to a man who, when you get down to it, was more famous for his horse falling skills than his acting skills was not really a good idea.  no no

VERY Interesting anecdote: I thought Val Penn was M Night Shyamalan.  frown

What a twist!
Singer did a great job with the reboot button, the next one will be better, he just had to explain to kids and stuff that Superman is strong and stuff, and he has a boner for Lois.

Wait for The Silver Surfer to see an indestructible guy, he's basically Jesus and God and Superman combined, if my Wiki reading is right.

It had my man Matt Damon in it, but still managed to take up a lot of time, and the plot wasn't even that good. The only reason it was barable was cause I was with a hot chick.

This was actually a lot better than expected. It has steve carell in it, so you can't really go wrong. His character was hillarious, and so was Dwayne, the kid that didn't talk.

Seriously, though, this thread reminds me of how little I go to the movies anymore. I used to go all the time. Oh well... I don't have the money to see 50 movies in a year, and even if I did, I'd spend it on something cooler.

Casino Royale

Everything up to the torture scene
Tense, exciting, and sexy.  Everything a Bond movie should be.

The last 20-30 minutes or so
Halp, halp, won't somebody help me?  My plot has holes in it and it's sinking faster than a collapsing house in Venice!

Overall, the best Bond movie since Goldeneye.
