I watched this weird yet awesome movie called Gummo. It's like if homerjayla made a movie.
Same guy that made the disturbing Kids movies I think? I remember them being quite well done.
I have plans to see District 9 and Ponyo soon...Has anyone seen Ponyo yet?

The Ugly Truth

This film is so funny. Remember girls never take a vibrator at a restaurant  laff

Noted!

Easy Virtue

Surprisingly funny. A young guy comes back to his family home (in the UK) after traipsing about in the US, he brings with him his car-racing wife and American "Whatserface", the family doesn't know what to think of her! Hilarity ensues! (Also, it's set just after WW1) Colin Firth is charming and cool as always as the dad, Jessica Biel (Beil?) is quite likable as the US wife, Prince Caspian is the son and is also pretty good and the dude from My Family (the tall son) is brilliant. Although the ending comes by no surprise, it's still nice.

Battle Royale 9/10

besides being a great gore-fest (a bit more believable than the usual gore-fest at least) it's also a nice way to symbolise the crossing from education to work-life in japan, which is, as far as i know, really brutal (just like the film shows).
It's also very creative of different ways of killings (crossbow, sickle, guns, hand grenades,  sword, suicide, poison, hatchet, knife, exploding collar etc.)

The Breakfast Club
Yes, I only just watched this last week. I've been told I have to catch up on John Hughes movies.
Almost every scene reminded me of that scene being spoofed by another movie or tv show. But otherwise it was alright. Anthony Michael Hall looked so young and pretty.

Sixteen Candles
What the hell was that? Fuck off, as if the guy you have had a crush on for who knows how long is going to suddenly want to go out with you when he realises you're giving him googly eyes. Not to mention he picked up your note that says you'd sleep with him! And then he tells his mate he doesn't want to just sleep with you. I stared at boys from afar for all my high school years and I got nothing. I should have 'accidentally' dropped notes in front of them that said I wanted to screw them, eh? Anyway, pretty boring to watch. hmpf

Only makes sense that you'd like a movie that is fucked up. But I'll admit I've seen previews and it looks scary as shit. Like "don't see that if you want to ever have children" kind of scary.

I went to see Coraline today (now that its finally reached NZ). I didn't know what to expect, having never read (or even heard of) the book, but I enjoyed it more than I suspected that I would.

It wasn't great, but if I had to justify why I thought that, it would be hard to think of anything that was actually wrong with it (as far as a movie-going experience goes). I'll see if a second viewing tomorrow changes my mind.

Of the animated movies that I've seen in the past year* I think I'd rate it second only to Bolt.

Watchmen

I was watching the Watchmen, and it was a competent and satisfying adaption! Alan Moore can complain all he wants.

Two complaints:
1. I wasn't the only one hoping Rorschach would sound like Skeeter, was I? Instead he was a typical Max Payne brooder. They blew their chance. frown

2. I find it hard to believe a dwarf held that much blood! no no

Anyhoo, back to Coraline

I finally remembered* something that I thought actually detracted from the story.
When she's trying to find the…
…was an unnecessarily and uncharacteristicly video-gamey touch.

Now that I've got that off my chest I return you to your previous discussion.

Inglorious Bastards
Slightly overhyped but I enjoyed it, Chapter 1 was probably the best. Individual performances were only alright apart from the jew hunter who was excellent.

Camerons raised the bar a bit I think, he's essentially taken Gollum type technology, improved it, and applied it to a whole freaking planet, but of course you still know in your mind it's CGI.
Watching the trailer on a tiny monitor doesn't do it justice either.

First one, then the others.


Inglourious Basterds
Oh my fucking Dalai Lama. This film was amazingly awesome.
It was all classic Tarantino. I can see Christoph Waltz being nominated for some awards for this, don't see Pitt so much. Kruger was pretty good in it, but not sure if award-worthy, and Mike Myers' and Samuel L. Jackson's parts were pretty funny. Mélanie Laurent could get some awards nods too. Speaking of which, she was pretty hot. Just saying, just saying. I'll give this an A, just behind District 9 and ahead of Up as the best film I've seen this year. Also my second favorite Tarantino, behind Reservoir Dogs.

Even I enjoyed it, and I'm a girl!

I'm not well educated in Tarantino films though, because I suck. I'll get right on that at some point.

Jumps? Out of fear, excitement, or arousal?
I don't know...I just don't know. The volume was up just a tad too high, so I'll give him that, but I always prepare myself for sudden loud noises in films so as not to embarrass myself by jumping every time some guy walks around the corner and the music goes BADOUUU.
