The Good Shepherd
I see lots of "borrrrring" reviews. It's not boring. If you want James Bond, go to the movies with the previous poster. (Nixonbo or whatever his name was.) But one complaint: Angelina Jolie and Matt Damon's kid would be much better looking than that!

Australian "Elephant" meets depressed art-school reject piece. The end scene should have been dragged out to 3 hours. In fact if the director/writer just did the end scene on repeat I would give it a better score.

Woops. Almost forgot I hired out Triumph of the Will. For some reason it made me want to listen to Pantera ... "Run your mouth when I'm not around. It's easy to achieve. You cry to weak friends that sympathize.."

Kinda boring. C+

Batman Beyond: Return Of The Joker


Pretty damn cool, it's got Joker (obviously) and Harley Quinn, old Batsy, new Batsy, old Batgirl and Robin and a cool storyline to boot.

The animation is nice too.

Casino Royale
It was very good. It's fun that the bonds follow now linear time line. He's not a 00, so its before all the movies, yet its after 2001 :O! Felix lighter comes in a few times doesn't he? Is he always black, who's the guy who always wear hiwaian shirts and give him vehicles? Also, didn't bond marry someone who he left mi6 for, who was then killed which caused he to return? And the last villian with the funky glasses, whoTF was that? Even with all the questions, i loved it.

Happy Feet
Cute.

Dejavu
Funky. Although the trailer is very misleading and shows a lot of key scenes, i glad i didn't remeber the trailer when i saw it.

Felix Lighter was always or mostly white until now, George Lazenbys Bond married, but she died in a car accident or something in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Hawaiian shirts guy I don't know, Q?

Jack Wade. Appeared in Goldeneye and Tomorrow Never Dies as kind of a Felix analogue, but then disappeared, never to be seen again.

The Good Shepherd
Matt Damon in Team America: MATT DAMON!  big grin
It must be real easy for Damon to make that blank face he does, because he does it a whole lot in this film.
Anyhoo, DeNiros first big director role I think, and he does a decent job, there were some good scenes of political secret spy-type boring things happening (as it probably usually is), and the behind the scenes Order of Skull and Bones/Stonecutters society was cool (I don't know if thats what actually happened, but it fitted the story anyway).
disturbed me quite a lot, so I must have been wrapped up in the story, good job DeNiro!

Note to self: learn to speak spanish before seeing Pan's Labyrinth.

*glares at hilo* Assumer!

Did no one see "The Fountain"? I know a bunch of you like "Requiem for a Dream". No love for Aronofsky's latest film? After I saw it, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I wanted to immediately see it again...and again. Never did, though. I'll have to wait for the dvd to see if I really liked it as much as I think I did, or maybe I was influenced by the ridiculously good soundtrack. *listens*

Yeah, it got horrible reviews. But it's purty!
Except the sap that comes out of the tree. It's just....gross. I don't care how mature you are, everyone has the same thought when they see that scene, whether they admit it or not. Especially when Hugh Jackman starts putting it in his mouth.   no no

I REALLY wanted to go see it, but have no friends and no money. Plus it was in and out of theaters in about 60 seconds. IT LOOKED beautiful in the trailers though.

The Fountain

Yeah. It was alright, I guess. I'm just not a Hugh Jackman fan.

I over-heard some lady afterwards say it was a cryptic and complex story. I thought it was kinda lame and very much laid-out. Meh.

Pretty colours and effects, though. C+

Minority Report

Good story for a movie but it was done too stupidly. It felt for like I was watching a comedy. Also see A.I.,Close Encounters of the Third Kind and any Jurassic Park movie for other Steven Spielberg comedy works.

The Illusionist & The Presitge
Or "Everybody Getting Punk'd Left Right and Centre!"

Illusionist: Edward Norton as a mysterious magician, Rufus Sewell as evilish Crown Prince and Paul Giamatti as the Police Inspector were really good, and Jessica Biels badonkadonk! (drool)
The story itself was simple enough and guessable where it was going (I don't like to use the word "predictable", as I liked the story)
I liked the degraded look of the film too, helped with the suspension of disbelief and the neat illusions.
B!

Prestige: I liked this one better, even though the story was revealed to me by reading a few too reviews and even a spoiler (fucks sake people!)
It did have me a bit confused at the end, so I'll watch it again.
Bale and Jackman did as good a job as Norton, they're all good actors blah blah blah but it was great to see David Bowie and Andy Serkis together as Nikolai Tesla and his assistant, heheh.
Also, Scarlett Johanssons badonkadonk!  love

A-

So, The Prestige was better, even if Bales character doesn't accidentally call Michael Caines character "Alfred"...

The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave

I've had the (original) drive-in poster for this movie for years (it's framed and on my wall) and I've finally found the damned film a few days ago. It's trashy as fuck and as such, I love it. B+

I've been looking for this one film for a while: Head Of The Family. I vaguely remember watching it on VHS when I was like 13 and I still haven't got it out of my mind. Softcore porn mixed in with a really bad comedy/horror combo. Gawd. I want it...

Requiem for a Dream

Was for the most part, an hour and a half anti-drug ad. If I wanted to see an anti-drug ad I could have see it on TV and it lasts a lot shorter and plus I don't get to see some lady getting sex from some old man butt to butt.


A waste of a buck I paid for it.

Requiem for a Dream is one of the most awesome movies I've ever seen. The end is just crazy. Something that really stuck with me. And that's the story of how I got drug free! (okay not really)

Also Brick and The Prestige = very excellent. Good taste everyone but HoJay!

I just saw "Notes on a Scandal" and thought it was very good, in a "that was good" sort of way. Not a "best movie ever" by any stretch, but the acting and camera-ing were pretty good and I wouldn't feel too upset if anyone involved got any awards. My only complaint is that I must be "maturing" because I didn't think the teacher on student action was very sexy. I wouldn't want to have sex in an alley, sorry boys! B-

Notes On A Scandal was written by Patrick Marber, who was part of Chris Morris' Day Today/On The Hour team, and also collaborated with Steve Coogan on his early series'.

He's nominated for an Oscar for this.  Bizarre.

Is that the "aberrant sexual behavior" mentioned in the rating box in the trailer?

This movie has all sorts of "aberrant sexual behavior!" Pretty much everyone is screwed up in some way.
Teacher-on-student shed action. Teacher-on-student alley action. Implied blow jobbing...
Then you have creepy Judy Dench, acting all pervy. :Shudder: I won't spoil it, although I am not sure a lot of PEELers are going to be seeing this. I think it skews a little too adult for most of us here.

It was a good movie though, don't get me wrong.

I listen to Mark Kermode's reviews weekly, and he rates it highly (although his movie-of-the-year is Pan's Labyrinth).  Maybe when it surfaces on DVD.  On the basis of Dame Judy's performance, I'd see it.

It kicked Requiem for a Dream's ass. It felt like the fat lady was going to eat the kids. They where brain washing the kids to make them little evil christian nazis. They didn't even know the real world.

The Horror.  frown

Anyhoo:
Angel-A
Luc Besson! That dumb guy from Amelie! A six foot skinny blonde supermodel in a short dress!  big grin

Black and white film in Freedom language French, about a loser guy who meets a mysterious beautiful woman who starts helping him for some reason...
He owes a lot of money to some nasty guys, and runs around scared but the woman helps him out.

A little cheesy and simple towards the end, but I liked it because it's Luc Besson with quirky humour and some great acting from the leads.

Spot the Leon reference!  love

Smokin' Aces
So kewl. I <3 Ben Affleck. Deal with it. I thought Jason Bateman was hilarious, but I seemed to be the only person laughing at him. Neither have huge parts, though. In the first scene Alicia Keys is in, "SpottieOttieDopalicious" by Outkast is playing, so that's just too much awesomeness right there. Ryan Reynolds is surprisingy non-horrible.

Bah, you saw Smokin Aces before me, curse my poor friend who wants me to wait and see it with him, maybe this is a sign to donate my cinema voucher to him, mwaha.

Pans Labyrinth
The bad guy was great, and the girl was ok, I think, maybe she's a terrible actress and I couldn't tell because of the Spanish, but whateva.
I was expecting more Labyrinth, with an underground society and lots of hobgoblin-y creatures... and maybe the Lord Of Darkness from Legend, but he never showed up and there were only a few creatures.

That weird root baby was the best one, awww.
