Final Destination 3

7/10

Watched it tonite on On Demand. I think I liked the first 2 better but this one was good too.. the deaths were pretty gross as usual. And it looks like there will be a #4.

Stick It- 6/10

It was fun to watch but not something I would have paid to see at the theatre. The acting really left something to be desired,lol.

Little Miss Sunshine 9/10 I really loved it. Great acting and the characters felt very real. I love disfunctional families. dark and funny well written.

Invincible 8/10 Mark Wahlberg was excellent. it had a bit of a good will hunting feel to it. guy from wrong side of the tracks makes something of himself. The cinematography was outstanding. Good action and I enjoyed the story.

Got teary both movies

Goodbye Lenin

10/10 - Revisited this little gem, recently. Amazing story and the acting is fantastic. Highly recommended even if you're not a fan of subtitles. There aren't a lot of movies dealing with the DDR, but this one does it with a sense of humour. Daniel Brühl is quickly becoming one of my favourite actors.


Little Miss Sunshine

Just saw this one, this past weekend. Steve Carell at his best. I liked it much better than 40 yr old virgin. Possibly the best movie of this year.

After wanting to see this movie forever, I finally rented it at Blockbuster over the weekend.

It's a quirky and bold movie that's about a whole lot of things: Time travel, yearning for acceptance and love, giant rabbits, and generally questioning everything society says you should never question. In other words, my kind of movie.

Jake Gyllenhaal is the lead actor. He's great as the emotionally mashed-up and lost Donnie. His real-life sister, Maggie, plays his on-screen sister, which adds a great sense of reality to the family.

The soundtrack is also kick-ass (or kick-arse if you happen to be residing in Canada).

I finally saw this movie last night. I loved it.

Alright for seeing once. 6/10

The Departed- seven and a half out of ten.

Rubbish beginning, amazing, brilliant, genius middle and a weak, lazy, defies-all-logic ending. After the ending, which frankly just served to tie up any loose endings in the easiest way possible, I saw it was directed by Martin Scorsese and was like, "Ah, so that explains the gratuitous violence of the ending then!" I mean, like I say, I wouldn't have minded so much if I didn't get the feeling that it just ended that way to tie up all loose ends without any effort whatsoever while still surprising the audience.

However the middle part of the film was superb, and it did give you a lot to debate about after the film (like was that guy who got shot after the roof incident actually an undercover cop or not?). Plus Ray Winstone's attempt at an American accent brought a nice touch of comic relief (why not let him do his Cockney accent though? I mean there was a Glaswegian there, whose accent I actually understood , so why not a Londoner? )

Fearless 8.5

Jet Li's acting ability has improved slightly.
The fight scenes were amazing. The love story between Jet Li's character and the blind girl was too underdeveloped and contrived. The visuals (the landscapes) were breathtaking. Overall a decent flick

The Last King of Scotland

9/10

About the relationship between Ugandan dictator Idi Amin and and a young Scottish doctor who becomes his personal physician. The acting was great. Forest Whitaker was amazing as Idi Amin. He was charismatic and funny and then terrifying. He scared the bejeezus out of me James McAvoy was great as the impressionable doctor. Very disturbing though, and not for the squeamish!

Yeah, the character is fictional. I guess the movie is based on a novel. I also hope forest whitaker get an oscar nomination. He was amazing.

I'm hoping to see Science of Sleep this week. I've heard so many mixed things about it. Or maybe I'll just pass

Agreed- except for the fact that I didn't hate the beginning. The background stuff was good. Re: that other guy who shot after the roof thing- he knew Costigan was undercover but never said anything. I'd say he was undercover cop but what I don't get is why the police would release that information to the news.

I'd give it a slighty higher rating (8.5/10) but I wish the movie was longer and that more focus was put on the ending.



(Is anyone else excited about Babel? )

Ella Enchanted 8/10

A great movie for girls starring Anne Hathaway. There's a wee bit of crude humour but nothing I wouldn't let the mini fahs watch.


The Matador 8/10

Pierce Brosnan and Greg Kinnear
Fabulous witty script
