^Yes.

Revolutionary Road

It was alright. Good acting. Kind of tedious until it kicks it up a notch later on. I liked the ending. Not something you want to watch twice.

Slumdog Millionaire

It was so very enjoyable to watch and the story so so spot on. Dev was absolutely brilliant and he is really nice looking.

I'm looking forward to seeing Slumdog Millionaire, me and some friends read the book in school and we're going to see it together when it comes to theatres smile

I just finished Rescue Dawn, woke up early and wanted to watch something, it was alright but a bit long.

Now I'll go watch other stuff booze suggested, and NOT what Books suggested

You should all download the soundtrack (or, I guess purchase it, if you're into that kind of thing)

I think Heartbreak Ridge is the only one of his films I saw at the cinema.

Lady Vengeance

Doesn't touch Oldboy, but still pretty decent. Story wasn't as tight or twisty.

Pineapple Express

Heard lots of hype about this movie, and as much as I tried to see it over the summer, I never had a chance and finally got to watch it on DVD. Seeing how I didn't mind the Cheech & Chong movies, I thought that this would be as good or better, especially as it was billed as the "first stoner action comedy movie". I shouldn't have had such high hopes for this movie, I was horribly disappointed. The movie failed on both the action and comedy fronts. The action didn't keep me interested and I only chuckled several times. Seth Rogen should seriously stay away from playing lead roles and stick to playing supporting characters, which IMO is his forte. Add some old, cliched stoner jokes, forgettable acting, and played-out and forced best friend conflict and relationship conflict and you have a disappointing and barely decent movie.

You need to be on some Pineapple Express to enjoy this movie. That means for me and more non-drug users, you probably won't have that pleasure.

REPO! The Genetic Opera

Expecting so much more, but utterly disappointed.

Only two characters I liked and feel did a good job were Mag the opera singer and the here and there Voice Over guy, who appears very little.

City Of Ember
Charming, reminded me of Lemony Snicket, had a great style and the sets were cool looking.
The leads were ok and there were some creepy bits (for kids I imagine), Bill Murray was fine but him and Tim Robbins and Mackenzie Crook could have had bigger roles, guess it wasn't that kind of movie.

B!

Max Payne

Oh wow, looked at some reviews online just now and lol, 18% on RT, haha!
I don't think these people played the game (I did) because clearly it was badass and like the game in most respects (ridiculous plot but stylish and mindless violence!!)
Take a look at the shootout scene in the office block when Chris "Robins nipplesuit" O'Donnell takes one in the chest in super-slomo (I lol'd) and tell me it wasn't pretty badass! Reminded me of the lobby scene in The Matrix.
Because I played the game the ending was obvious and I didn't play MP2 so I didn't think Mona was completely useful or necessary but whatever.
Dissapointed Olga Kurylenkos nipples were good enough for Hitman but not for this, awww. frown

In Bruges

Excellent. Even better than I expected considering it's in the top 250. Funny and unexpectedly emotional, especially that one scene  cry Hopefully it gets a screenplay nom. Chloe was cute too.

I thought it was pretty decent too.  I never played MP though... the person who had was a little disappointed... but all in all, it was still one of the better movies based on a videogame that are out there.

I guess I start off by quote FazeShift, and then agree with him without actually saying anything specific about the movie.

That movie was awesome. I felt bad for the black guy thought because he cried when he got smashed in the face with the coffee pot.

Ghost Town

Ricky Gervais sees dead people.  Ricky plays a New York misanthropic dentist who, after a routine colonoscopy dies for 7 minutes and when he comes back he can see, talk to, and do favours for ghosts...

Excellent, I thought.  Good supports from Greg Kinnear and Tea Leoni (Kristen Wiig as Gervais' surgeon is a good turn too).

I saw Ju-on 2 at a summerhouse with two friends, and it was freaking scary, it's just scary thinking about it now since I am pretty much alone and it's dark. :weep:

The Dark Knight was better the second time. But it would have been great if they ditched the political/banking stuff and focused on the raw battle between the Joker and Batman in Gotham City. smile
And the chase scene was really cool.

RocknRolla
Guy Ritchie and his London gangstas again, real estate scams and blagging lots of money and tough guys are invovled!
The title RocknRolla is played by Toby Kebbell (the younger brother in Dead Mans Shoes Melll wink ) but he only shows up 40 mins in but he's pretty good in this too, there's lots of characters all doing various wheelings and dealings, including Gerard "THIS IS SPARTAAAA" Butler who's great in it.
The scene of him and his buddies (one is Stringer Bell from The Wire) being chased by two Eastern European unstoppable gargantuans is brilliant. big grin

I read the book.  The characters they play did not have large roles in the book, so it seems normal that they wouldn't in the movie either.
