The Social Network
Well told and shot or whatever, but kinda boring, and Eisenberg is such a robotic po-faced actor.

Still don't care about facebook.

The point of the movie isn't really to get you to care about Facebook though, and that's why I liked it. It's just a made-up story that's somewhat based on a true story about a bunch of college assholes trying to start a business.

I didn't really like the whole thing where the twins and random dude were suing Zuckerberg for stealing their idea.  It seemed like the only proof they had that it was their idea is the emails between Zuckerberg and twins, which... I think Zuckerberg would have been able to actually sue them in the long run, since he was doing all the work and seemingly not going to be paid.

Besides - how can they claim it was their idea when the idea already existed with myspace and all the other ones?

That was the point I think.

I actually liked the Winklevoss twins, purely because of the comic relief they supplied a lot of the time, even when it was humour at the characters expense.


Besides - how can they claim it was their idea when the idea already existed with myspace and all the other ones?

I may be wrong, but didn't they mention that in the actual movie? Sure, he apparently stole the algorithms that allowed him to start stuff up, alongside Eduardo's, but yeah. But they mentioned something to do with social networking not exactly being a new thing...

Also, I love the actor who played Eduardo - so even if the movie had been shit, I'd have loved it just because of him.

Well, that's what I mean.  At the end of the movie they said that Zuckerberg paid the twins off - but I really don't think they had much of a case.

When you're worth billions, something tells me you can afford a few million to shut a couple of idiots up and let you have your website.

He's got billions. His worth is up for debate. An important distinction, I feel. A man's worth to the world shouldn't be measured by the size of his hoard.

Yeah, penis length is the only thing that God actually cares to measure.  And I'm pretty sure mine is the biggest, but I'm too humble to talk about it in public.

Get Low
Great film set in the 1930s about an mysterious old hermit (a fantastic Robert Duvall) that lives in the woods who comes to town to arrange his funeral and to have a big party while he's still alive.
He knows lots of rumours surround him and wants everyone who's ever heard a story about him to come to the party... and to have a chance to tell the true story.
The greedy local funeral director (Bill Murray) and his morally guided protege (Lucas Black) help him set up the whole thing.

Apparently based on this guys story.

2009 according to IMDB which you should totally check out when you want to know anything about a movie *glares* tongue
It didn't get a wide release (only 4 cinemas according to Wiki-p) but the DVD is out soon.

Gnomeo & Juliet

Meh. It had some funny moments and a few nice touches but overall it seemed too uneven and unfocused for my tastes.

And I'm still convinced that the person who voiced the flamingo (who turned out to be Jim Cummings) was merely doing a Sacha Baron Cohen impersonation.

Rating: C–  "Not as bad as I feared it would be."

Season of the Witch

Oh Nick Cage, what happened to you?

I think Ron Perlman is one of those "missing links" of evolution.

Where the Wild Things Are

Watching it now on tv, maybe 3/4 of the way done.  Holy crap, most boring movie ever.  Who the hell did they make this movie for?  Couldn't be for the young children that enjoy the book because sitting through this would be torture.

When I was in primary school our class went to see Where The Wild Things are as a Christmas treat. I thought the ending was absolutely terrible, but for some reason a teacher said to me "It makes you think".

I don't think that gives Lord Of War enough credit, that was decent, it should be squished up between World Trade Center and The Weather Man.

Exactly.   Good thing I go to a theater that shows movies for 2 dollars on Friday night.

I've seen 7 of the movies listed up there.  Those aren't all his movies right?  What's the one where he wins the lotto and gives money to the waitress?

Anyways, Conan made a new terror alert system featuring Nick Cage: http://www.tbs.com/video/conan.jsp?oid=242591

To bad using Monopoly money won't get you into the theater.

I was thinking the same thing as you...the movie you were thinking of is It Could Happen to You and no, it is not shown on the matrix.

If you haven't, I'd recommend you see Adaptation, Matchstick Men, and Lord of War. The former two are fantastic, and I didn't really mind the latter. Plus, Matchstick Men has Sam Rockwell, so it's automatically good.

If you like Sam Rockwell, I suggest "Moon" if you haven't seen it.  I thought it was pretty damn good.

Despicable Me

Finally, finally got around to seeing this.

All I can say is it's amazing. I loved every minute, and the fact that it manages to combine laugh out loud moments with heartwarming moments, without being overly cliché and sappy... Yeah, it gets an A from me, and I'll definitely be watching it again.

It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!

Moon was good. Moon was very good, actually.

That's the best line from a movie in quite a while.  Totally agree with your review.  Definite A. 

I saw it in the theater in 3D, and it wasn't overly done, so I barely noticed it, but when I thought about it I thought "wow."  Yeah, I'm articulate like a fox.

Moon was very good indeed. Despicable Me was nowhere near as good as Megamind though. But I liked the little yellow minions.

Moon was absolutely fantastic, one of my top 5 from last year, but that's expected considering the director is spawned from David Bowie's loins. He won a BAFTA for Outstanding Debut by a British Director, Writer, or Producer for Moon. I can't wait for Source Code (Duncan Jones's newest work being released in April) just because of it being helmed by him.

Gnomeo and Juliet was way more enjoyable than a movie about garden gnomes reenacting one of Shakespeare's worst plays had any right to be.  It wasn't as good as Despicable Me (which was awesome and light years better than Megamind, shut up tnuk, you're stupid) but it wasn't even close to the travesty/tragedy/tragesty that I was expecting a week or two ago.
