Year One
Lowered my expectations for this and they were met!
Someome give Michael Cera an action role or something, poor kid is typecast.
Same for Jack Black actually.

Pumpkinhead
Low budget & interesting slice of Halloween flavored Americana, combining old American folk tales & deep south voodoo legends.  A creature is brought back to life by an old witch, to wreak revenge on a group of young city adults that accidently killed the beloved son of a local bayou farmer.  Atmospheric & enjoyable, particularly the surprise ending.  

7/10

V is for Vendetta.

 Visually annoying and one 'plosion away from being a death race movie. Overly preachy.Many fan boys actually wondered why Hugo weaving was not nominated for an Oscar. Because he is masked and many of the shots are done with a stunt double. doh.You can see whatever you want to in this flick. Anti-church, anti government, anti-taste ,anti-intelligence.
Also stars Natalie Portman whom is at her best when she is being psychologically broken. It 's bad when your best movie is about a 13 year old serving as a surrogate wife.(ewww) Leon. It is currently 181 out of 250 on IMDb best of. Fanboys rock the vote.

Tali Pocong Perawan

An Indonesian horror movie that's one of the best and worst I've ever seen. It's based around an incredibly deranged guy who stalks his roommate's girlfriend. He tries to create a potion that will make her fall in love with him and in the process defiles a body incurring the wrath of a Pocong, which is quite possibly the most hilariously ineffective ghost ever. Only about an hour long too so it moves along pretty well and never has the chance to get stale.

Actual Value: 2/10
Comedy Value: 10/10

Oh man, awesome, the Pixar guys must smoke some strong granola, when you realise you're watching a pack of dogs chasing a giant parrot, a boy scout, and old man and a talking dog with a floating house trailing behind them, you're like whoooaa... tongue

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
I had only heard of this movie and didn't really know what it was about.. So I liked it. There were a few good laughs in there and some great vomit inducing moments too, which is hilarious when you're watching it with a group of other girls because the noise of "eeewwww" must wake up the entire neighbourhood.
My neighbour asked if she could be teleported to the recording studio right when the camera was tracing the microphone cord and we made fun of her for being a perve, even though she just wanted to go to the recording studio, not watch Michael Cera and Kat Dennings making out.

Hoodlum

Sort of a prequel to American Gangster with Laurence Fishburne playing the part of Bumpy Johnson a role portrayed by Clarence Williams III in Gangster.
But we are talking numbers in Hoodlum instead of the slightly nastier heroin. It's Bumpy vs Dutch Schultz(well played by Tim Roth) and Andy Garcia's, "Lucky" Luciano, for control of the lucrative numbers racket in Harlem in the Mid Thirties.
Plenty of death-killin to be had. And a fine supporting cast of Chi McBride, Cicely Tyson and Vanessa L. Williams. Excellent musical numbers featuring the famous Apollo.
This movie shows that even a good man can turn into a monster when he surrounds himself with other monsters.

Thank You For Smoking
Very entertaining film about an amoral cigarette industry spokesman, who finds a way to promote smoking no matter what the situation.  Not for anti-smoking advocates, but high quality film none the less.

Inglourious Basterds
Fiiinallly. I've been meaning to watch this for ages. Hilarious, poignant, clever, gory. Everything you'd expect from a Tarantino. Not his best, but still one of the better movies I've seen for a year or so.

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan
Sneaky dealings of Ones (Cavil and his bros) behind the scenes destruction of the human colonies, set right before the Cylon attack and up until Galactica Cavil and his Caprica counterpart get airlocked in whatever episode that was.
We see lots more of the main Cylon models (more of Fours and Fives getting treated like crap, and also a new Six who likes to get drunk in her underwear love) going about The Plan of the destruction of the human fleet and a bit more of the Final Five.
Also this is not made for TV so there's basically boobs everywhere! love
(well, a few tasteful scenes tongue )

MOAR BSG!!

I Know What You Did Last Summer
Here's 100 minutes of my life that I want back.  Like I posted in the Halloween thread, I saw this film at my friends house after Halloween dinner.  We started counting the horror movie cliches, and there were so many we just stopped at some point.  Pretty brainless plot, flat acting, you don't get emotionally invested in the characters, the killer is unmasked too soon, etc.  It got so bad that we started taking bets & doing an over/under on what would happen next.  "$5 she runs away from the killer down the dimly lit alleyway instead of in the middle of the brightly lit street", that kind of thing.  Unintentionally hilarious; doing your own commentary is about the only way to watch this film.

Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus
In one of the scenes, a poorly animated Mega Shark jumps out of the ocean and bites a plane in half.

I love my life.

I always thought his timing would be near precognitive to do that... there's a lot we don't know about mega shark, science needs to get on that.

The appeal of this movie continues to grow! Were there any timely in-flight meal quips? That would completely undermine the artistic integrity of Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus. no no

Not that I remember M0le, just a quip about marriage and airplane turbulence.

Its in the top 5 bracket for best movie of 09 in mind.

"Nothing had better happen. We're getting married tomorrow, and she's pregnant."

I'm not sure that bit about pregnancy was in the film, but I think I should write schlock from here on.

It could be a new career for you.  Just write as many cliches as you can think of on a piece of paper, connect the dots & you've got a movie.  You'll make millions.  Just be sure to share it with us poor PEELers...

Blair Witch Project
It was good I thought, I enjoyed the ending and it's link to the earlier interviews.

I just didn't think it was very fleshed out, not a lot seems to happen. Paranormal Activity (the inspiration for me wanting to see this) seemed a bit meatier, excuse the expression wink.
