Thief
Michael Mann does great crime stories. This one, a bit like Heat, focuses on a diamond thief trying to get out by doing one final big score but has to do it for some big gangster to get a big enough take.
James Caan is the lead guy.


It's pretty good, but not as good as Heat or Collateral.

I did security training with the weapons consultant from this movie.He was extremely professional and I learned quite a bit on gun handling.Everything is very realistic in this movie. The Tangerine Dream soundtrack is awesome

Good story, sub-par acting. I didn't see the ending coming.

Cool, ya the safe breaking stuff is good, and the soundtrack is some classic crazy 80s!

The Invention Of Lying
Only went to this because of A GIRL I LIKE! OH NOES SRY RICKY GERVAIS!
I knew it was going to be disappointing because of a review I read beforehand.
There are some funny moments and touching human interaction insights, but it's too mishy mashy (try to follow the technical lingo here...)
Liar Liar > Yes Man > This.

some movies i watched since i left germany (plane, cinema, tv):

Terminator 4 - could have been better, could have used more Arnie wink

Wolverine - SHOULD have been way better

Toy Story 2 - pure awesomeness!

Wall-E - cute movie, liked it a lot

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li - *facepalm*

Inglourious Basterds - very good, mindless violence

Up (3D) - awesome, especially for the added 3d effect

Persopolis - very interesting movie, and a totally different style

Batman (1966) - so bad, it's good again

I have to say, watching Up in 3D didn't seem much different to watching it in 2D, the glasses just made me feel a bit dizzy. I think that will be the first and last time I watch a movie in 3D. hmpf

They just need to make all cinema screens a big dome, like the old Omni we had here. That was kind of like 3D without glasses. We went to an educational film about rollercoasters (fuck yes) there once and you felt like you really were on the thing. Good for people who are too scared to go on a real one I guess. But real ones don't go through fire or segments of missing track. Usually.

So, as I've said before, I'm not really good with reviews but:

Ponyo
So I finally got to see this after travelling to Wollongong because Bob (the guy who owns the cinema here) never shows new Miyazaki movies here but I'm getting off topic.

This movie was really good. The animation was great and all of the voices were good too.

A+ or 10/10 or whatever rating system you prefer me to use to tell you that it was a good movie...

Zombieland
Best film of the year? Quite possibly!
Funny as hell, plenty of gore, the best cameo evar!!!1, and great soundtrack.
Awesome.

A

Almost forgot:
Assassination of a High School President
Ok, think of Brick, the great film noir set in highschool starring Joseph Gordon Levitt, this is Brick Lite, set in a more posh school.
Bobby Funke (Reece Thompson) is a gum chewing gumshoe school paper writer trying to uncover who stole the SATs from the principals (Bruce Willis, awesome) office safe, and finds it was the star-jock-with-the-hottest-girl-in-school-girlfriend-(Mischa Barton, yes her boobs appear)-and-student-president!
*record scratch* OR WAS IT?
Basically, no, and he has to reinvestigate.

It's pretty funny at times, but less noir than Brick but still entertaining.

My friends went crazy over Kung Fu Panda and bought the The Art of Kung Fu Panda.

It's really interesting how they come up with the characters and different styles to create the movie.

I thought the 2D animation at the start of the movie done in flash was... perfection.

I am really into watching crap movies lately.

American Psycho 2.
Mila is really a cute girl. But this movie is a complete waste of her comedic"talent",as well as time. Implausable storyline miserable direction.Absolute Dreck.

We weren't gonna watch them anyway!

City By The Sea
I watched it on TV because the description looked interesting, DeNiro, James Franco, Frances McDormand, even Eliza Dushku and Deputy Ops Rawls from The Wire show up.
DeNiro is a cop with an estranged junkie son (Franco), who accidentally kills a guy and DeNiro is put on the case and discovers it was his son, everything goes from bad to worse and he tries to bring his son in peacefully.
Decent story acting etc, the bad guy in it is kind of a cliché: Mullet, motorbike, mawn-off motgun (lol)

Neither did the crew. From all accounts, everyone had a shit time making that movie, to the point where the planned large scale battle with the French at the end was chopped out and replaced with them all getting arrested for killing that dude two acts ago. They had also run out of money. Good times.

The Sex and the City movie, but like the extended version with the commentary by Michael Patrick King so I could listen to him explain himself out of the hideousness only to be bored and have none of my outrage responded to

Meh. This movie is clothes porn, and nothing more.

That's definitely a pythonesque ending; running out of money so you cobble something together that makes no sense.

I think the only Python movie to end brilliantly was" Life of Brian'.
They made superb comedy masterpieces, but didn't know how to end them.

Yes, I've always been a bit disappointed by the Holy Grail ending too.

I think that the Meaning of Life's ending wasn't necessarily brilliant, but it worked for the film and I can't really complain.

The dialog in the film more than makes up for any oddities at the end.

Roger the Shrubber: Are you saying Ni to that old woman?
King Arthur: Um, yes.
Roger the Shrubber: Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can say Ni at will to old ladies. There is a pestilence upon this land, nothing is sacred. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress in this period in history.
King Arthur: Did you say shrubberies?
Roger the Shrubber: Yes, shrubberies are my trade. I am a shrubber. My name is Roger the Shrubber. I arrange, design, and sell shrubberies.

Well, there's no denying that.

I'm tempted to say that the best scenes are near the beginning, but how could I forget things like "There are some who call me...Tim?" or the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch? It's all too good.
