Normal Movies that I have seen recently

and this is just my opinion

The Alamo... 3/10: 3 is for pity

Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain... 10/10: beautiful, beautiful movie

Mulholland drive... 7/10: It wasn't what was expecting, maybe was expecting too much

The Passion of the Christ... 8/10: Good accomplishment, good performances, good photography, good direction, touching, etc... a story seen 363567 times

Frida... 5/10: great soundtrack, poor movie

I would like read opinions of movies that you have seen recently

Amelie :Oh, I like your avatar, its one of the gnomes pictures haha.

I have been watching so many movies recently....

Educating Rita - hilarious, funny, charming, a little sad, its a really ambiguous ending which is sort of annoying

Meet Joe Black - brilliant, funny.

Shadowlands - I cried through about half of this movie a bittersweet tale, very good.

Love actually: One of those feel good movies, leaves you with a warm glow (could have been the wine though)

Lost in Translation - It was Ok, I didnt get what all the hype was about.

Big Fish - took a while for it to get interesting imo and sort of bored me, but it picked up and I really liked it in the end.

Field of Dreams - an old movie but good yarn.

I have seen more movies than this but I can't remember which ones - Ana y Otto, a Spanish film but I havent finished watching it yet and am also going to watch some older films this weekend like Green Card, Edward Scissorhands and A League of their own which were all excellent as far as I can remember.

well, since my memory sucks, and i don't see a lot of movies, i can't remember what i've seen recently. i don't recall seeing anything in the last month though, other than some russian films for school.

I hated Lost in Translation

I just saw Somethings Gotta Give and I loved it. I swear I have a friend who is just like Jack's character.

Lost In Translation - loved it.
Big Fish - OK, but Ewan was in it so that gets bonus marks.
Cold Mountain - a bit blah.

that's about it really.

Lost in Translation wiped me out for days. I was heartbroken. I was gobsmacked that I was heartbroken.

Capturing the Friendmans was very good. Edge of your seat good for a documentary of that nature.

I hated Something's Gotta Give because, well, I'm young, and don't like romantic comedies.

Cheaper By The Dozen - hated it - but I don't like family films.

Underworld - really enjoyed it, because I loved the clever twist.

Mona Lisa Smile - not a bad movie, although most of the content infuriated and depressed me.

Yep, me too--but still, I love it sooo much. Capturing the Friedmans is definately a must-see. I finally saw it last December, and it's very powerful.

I haven't really seen much in theatres lately cos I've been so broke. I did see Starsky and Hutch, and it was entertaining, but ok. I still really need to see Eternal Sunshine...

Miracle:
Pretty good, especially considering the fact that I'm not a big hockey fan. The acting was great, I thought Kurt Russel was pretty awesome, and the story was inspiring. The extent of my knowledge of the 1980 Olympics is what they showed on I Love the 80s, and, even though I knew the Americans beat the Russians, I was still on the edge of my seat.

The Passion of the Christ:
Amazing movie. Gibson is incredible. It's possibly one of the best made films I've ever seen. Plus the story... just incredible. The sleeves of my hoodie were soaked. I'm so glad I saw it.

Donnie Darko:
This movie had me totally confused for a few days, and my brain was shot for about a week, but I think it was really good. One of those films that really gets ya thinking...

Save the Last Dance:
Aww... your typical chick-flick-trying-not-to-be-a-chick-flick movie. It was great though, the dancing was awesome, the story was sweet, it was good times.

I haven't been to the cinema in a while, but...

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. 10/10 - Just fantastic, deserved every one of the Oscars it won, if you haven't see it you should.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. 7/10 - I think they did the best they could with this film, but I have to say I still prefer the book to the film.

Good Will Hunting. 10/10 - This was on tv the other night and I couldn't resist the chance to watch one of my favourite films again. I love everything about this - storyline, script, acting, everything.

Fever Pitch. 8/10 - A must-see for any football fans. Unless, like me, you're a Liverpool fan, in which case this will have you hiding behind the sofa in despair.

Divine Intervention. 9/10 - This probably isn't most people's type of film, but if you like slightly quirky, art-type films and have an interest in middle eastern culture, you'll enjoy this.
