V for Vendetta 9/10 (a comic based movie, but scarily relevant story)
United 93 7/10 (really, about the only type of movie worth making on that event)

on the "past Oscars winners" Crash 7,5/10 (a tad overtly PC) vs Brokeback Mountain 6/10 (Heath Ledger's charater's wife saves the movie)

Thought it was far less of a comedy then it was advertised. It was ok, not as horrible as most people made it out to be.

Not so much a comedy - that's what I had heard about it. Maybe I'll have to throw it into my Netflix queue.

I thought The Break Up was really, really boring.

Saw The Last King of Scotland tonight. There is an astonishingly gruesome scene towards the end. Apart from that, Forest Whitaker was incredible - anyone at all familiar with the footage of Idi Amin would see how great of a job he did. The rest of the movie was alright, but it's his performance that is the best part.

Pan's Labyrinth

8/10

I really enjoyed this movie

Set in the 1940s, it's basically a good vs evil story set in Spain. While the fascists battle the anti-fascists, a little girl uses the power of her imagination to rise above it all (he said, in a deep, movie-man voice).

It's subtitled in English, which is a little distracting for about two seconds. After that, the story really pulls at you at makes you think.

Running With Scissors

6/10

I enjoyed this movie more than I was expecting to see it. I liked the book and was curious about the movie, despite the negative reviews I'd read.

The story (as in the book) is almost too hard to believe, but once I got past that, I was able to appreciate it. Annette Bening was VERY good. She deserved her Oscar nod.

Or was it a Golden Globe nod? Maybe she wasn't nommed for an Oscar. Oh well, whichever it was, she deserved it.

The Live of Others.

9/10.

ETA - This is a German film with English subtitles.


Set in the GDR in 1984, when the state employed 100,000 people in the Stasi (E German secret service) and use another 200,000 people as official informers (That 300,000 total meant that one in every 50 East Germans worked or informed for the Stasi, unreal), story follows a Stasi member's surveillance of a playwrite who is living with his lead actress. The man watching them eventually, for reasons revealed in the film, becomes disenchanted with why he is watching the writer and the tension slowly builds from that point on.

It's just over 2 hours, and it is 100% plot and dialogue driven, and so some might deem it slow. I loved it, and it got a huge round of applause from the audience I watched it with, so they seemed to love it as well.

Flags of our Fathers

8/10

I'm not a big fan of war movies, but in the spirit of the Oscars, it was on my list. It touched me more than I expected it to.

I would also like to see Letters From Iwo Jima, but I'm waffling between seeing it in the theaters before the Oscars, or just waiting for DVD.

The Guardian 8/10

A movie with a lot of heart to it and was really enjoyable to watch. Was reminded a few times though of "Officer and a Gentleman" with the similarities.

I had indeed heard that Letters is the better of the two. 8/10 might have been high for my rating ... maybe it was more of a 7/10. I shouldn't rate a movie when I'm still choked up over it.

I liked Flags ok, too.
