I think Australia was the first movie I saw this year. There are a lot of movies in the cinema right now that I want to see. Including Frost/Nixon, Fanboyz, The Pink Panther 2, Defiance and Milk and... if I were with my friends I probably wouldn't mind seeing he just not that into you >_<

^Somewhat agreed. It did remind me of The Kingdom, but maybe just because of the location. I also liked how they seemed to try to have the customs somewhat insightful.

This is mainly so I won't forget to put these movies on my list but I recently saw Elizabethtown which has Orlando Bloom with an American accent.
Saw Frost/Nixon and Defiance at the cinema tonight, history night at the movies.

I was going to write a semi-long review of Australia, because I kept thinking of things to say about it while watching it, but I'm not going to bother. I think I can sum it up by saying the cinematography was really pretty, but I just didn't care that much about the story. I loved the very beginning, and the kid was the best thing about it. He was really great, and his grandfather dude. And yes, it did have some extremely corny moments (reunion hug! booming orchestra cue!). It's worth watching, but eh...

6.5 or 7/10

Didn't it feel like the movie was over when [possible spoiler for picky people] they got the cattle on the boat? [/]

I watched The Order of the Phoenix today, I think for the fourth or fifth time. I really like the Harry Potter movies, maybe because I didn't read a single book until last year when I read the deathly hallows.
Looking forward to the half-blood prince, I actually did start on that book because I got it for christmas last last year but I could barely read 5 pages, I don't know what it was, maybe bad translation but the book was booooring, at least the first 5 pages.

Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain
It was fantastic. And French.

Reservoir Dogs
This may in fact be one of my favorite films ever now. The last few minutes were awesome.

Coroline
Predictably twisted and bizarre.  The animation was pretty, although it seemed stuttery every once in awhile, which was odd.  I really had no interest in this movie, but was dragged there anyway by my friends.  In short, if you like watching every six year old in the audience crap their pants in unison, then you'll enjoy this movie.  Otherwise, meh.

Valkyrie
Bryan Singer does a real good job of winding up the tension of the last plot to kill ol' Hitler (based on a true story, historically accurate or not, it's edu-tainment!)
Really great ensemble cast.

A-

Sex Drive Unrated
Completely stupid, but a few funny parts.

The unrated version has post production boobs and cawks added in for some stupid reason.

Amanda Crew is really cute in it because I guess she reminds me of one of my college friends.

I told you a few weeks ago it was called a boom mad
And in this day and age I doubt they'd ever let things like that get by if it was noticeable. It's an easy SFX fix. Maybe the projectionist was playing tricks mad

Oh, sorry Books, I forgot. But I really do not think this was the projectionist playing tricks, I have never seen this so obviously in any movie, maybe it was though, I can't see anything about this on imdb. But it really spoiled the movie for me and this was all I could think of.

Single White Female

I first saw this in the cinema many years ago and enjoyed it enough to buy it when it came out on video. While I don't rate it as highly as when I first saw it I still think it is a good film, mainly due to the quality of the two lead actresses, especially Jennifer Jason Leigh who seems to be excellent in everything I've seen her in.

Bridget Fonda plays Allison Jones who learns that her fiancé has cheated on her with his ex-wife. She ends the relationship but doesn't want to live alone so puts an advert in the newspaper for a flatmate. Out of the applicants she chooses Hedra 'Hedy' Carlson a mousy girl played by Jennifer Jason Leigh, at first she seems like the ideal choice but things start to go wrong when it appears that Allie and her fiancé are getting back together. Hedy is determined to keep them apart, at the same time she starts to dress like Allie and even changes her hair style and colour to match. Things soon spiral out of control leading to a violent confrontation between Allie and Hedy. There is also a sub-plot about Allie's work involving a client who sexually harasses her then fails to pay for her services.

I have tried to keep them to a minimum as a thriller won't be very thrilling if you know too much. As mentioned before, the acting is good and the plot is fairly plausible till the climax when it becomes a fairly standard confrontation between the two protagonists. There isn't too much violence and what there is isn't all that graphic, there is however a fair amount of sexual content and nudity which I suppose some viewers might feel uncomfortable with.

7/10

Heh, you saw it at the theatre and the movie is as old as me! Thanks for the nudity warning, now I won't watch it with my parents!
And Tweek, I finally watched A Scanner Darkly last night. I loved how it was animated, but those costumes they wore kinda annoyed me if I watched them for too long. It was not exactly as I thought, but I thought it was very good. The characters were brilliant and the actors did a good job.

This is Books's favorite thread I think so in honor of him I will review a movie I saw about Books.

It was called "Franklin and the Library Card" or something like that but anyway Franklin left his book out in the rain and was scared to return it but it turned out ok because the Library doesn't really hold any weight when it comes to fees and stuff. You can just not go back and join a different one instead.

Overall I give it an A.

Books if you can stilll read this I hope you are appreciative smile

Happy Go Lucky
Sally Hawkins was great in this, the story is just a girl who's so cheery and happy go lucky that you can't get her down really, she meets an angry driving instructor (also great douchebag acting) that gets her down for a bit, but by the end she's happy again.

7/10 B
Fix'd!

Also:
Slumdog Millionaire
To be brief: middle-age Salim was the best part, it was definitely my favorite non-WALL-E film of the 2008 Oscar film cycle, but if this won Best Picture, I'm still amazed how WALL-E wasn't even nominated.

Boyz N The Hood
One of the few "hood" films I can actually sit down and watch. This one is probably my favorite out of the genre.

A-

Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder (with commentary)

The Futurama crew always delivers a pretty enjoyable commentary. I woulda liked it better if it had Billy West in it though.

A-

True Lies

Rewatched another one of my Schwarzenegger guilty pleasures. Fun romp all around. Gotta love how the bad guy dies at the end. Probably James Cameron's last good movie.

B+

South Central LA, Futurama, and Schwarzenegger. Doesn't get funner than that.

Some animated stuff.
Hulk Vs...
Two short films about Hulk fightin, one with Wolverine and the other with Thor, lots of "AAAAGGGHHHH!" shouting and running at each other, smashing fists and fast cut fight scenes.
I liked Deadpool in the Wolverine one, and the bit about Bruce Banner being the Hulks only control in the Thor one.

Wonder Woman
Heheh, Nathan Fillion did a voice in this, he's even funny as a cartoon!
"Your daughter has a great rack!" big grin
A lot of "bitches be crazy" in this, like for the competition to find the best Wonder Woman, the women of wherever WW is from shoot arrows at the contestants, bit crappy for 2nd place, not even a friggin medal!
Lots more fast cut fights and crazy monsters in this too.

B- for all

Walled In

I got somewhat into it and watched the whole thing.

The movie should have been shorter than what it was. The ending was f*cked up and it was really gross! Ripped off freddy's song.


I'm glad I saw paid nothing to see this movie.
