*SPOILER AHEAD*

Not because of the graphic nature (I've seen much worse), but because the scene was so real emotionally, with the couple, and how they tried to reason with the killer using humor, etc. It was really sad...you get the sense the couple were also very much in love


****more spoiler alert****



I guess the guy lived

that is why we got so much detail in that scene

also, did someone live in the first shooting attack?

Yeah, I think he did live, if I recall. The same with the guy in the first attack...he was the one who pointed to the killer's photo much later in the movie, when he sat down with the investigator.

Bah, beat to it by angelordevil.






Zodiac
8.5/10

I really enjoyed this movie, all of the actors did a great job. Robert Downey Jr. was hilarious. I liked the way that little bits of humor were thrown in to lighten the mood up, it helped the movie be not so depressing and dark. It was nice to see Anthony Edwards acting again, especially since I've been hooked on early ER episodes as of late. He is an excellent actor as well. It's long, and probably could have been cut a little, but I don't think it's overly done and it did keep me interested the whole movie.

so all the attacks we saw were recounted by someone that survived

with the exception of the taxi driver, but that info was from the kids and the knowledge that he took part of the guy's shirt

the rest of the killings we just hear about

that is why this movie is not that sensational and also seems so credible

it really is a damn good movie

Pan's Labyrinth

8.7

Really enjoyable, but also quite intense. The actors were all pretty amazing, most notably the little girl who played Ofelia, the main character. There are 3, 4 at most scenes that are graphic and received the "ewww reactions" but the last ones actually felt more satisfying than disturbing (Maribel Verdu is v. powerful onscreen). I didn't think it would be, but the story in the reality portion of the movie was as interesting as what was going on in Pan's world.

The Zodiac. (5 out of 10) Let's see it's about a serial killer in the bay area (where I am from). Now in the trailer the show alot of Jake Gyllenhal but in reality he really does not play a major role until the last hour and a half of the film. The movie was slow and way to long. Clocking in at 2hrs and 40 min to be excact.

The Marine. (1 out of 10) Cheesy (what do you expect from a WWE film) The acting was awful, the survival rate of John Cena surviving a hail of gun fire and explosions which seem to blow up a whole block or building is amazing and yet no scatch on him at all. watch it if you love cheese fest movies.

The Protector.( 10 out of 10) Starring Tony Jaa from Ong Bak Thai Warrior in his 2nd western released film is loads of fun. The fight scene towards the end had me tearing up at how beautiful the fight scene was and all the broken bone (tearing because of laughing that is) I Highly recommend this to anyone!

the departed- really good movie. it got long at parts but i really enjoyed the first hour and a half or so especially. the acting was great from everyone i thought. jesus christ, lots of people died. but the final one made it all worth it.

Being There

6/10

I've always heard so many great things about this movie. And while Peter Sellers remains awesome, it kind of put me to sleep.

Pan's Labyrinth
8/10

Stunning movie. It's foreign, so it's all in Spanish and has English subtitles. The entire story was gripping, a few scenes were cringeworthy, but nothing that isn't seen in every horror movie that comes out.

I realize that this one is slightly older, but I just recently saw Lost in Translation, which I thought was absolutely superb. The central relationship was exceedingly genuine and the characters were always believable. As a matter of fact, nothing about the film felt in any way contrived, which is something that I cannot say about most films that I have seen lately. I realize that this film polarized a lot of viewers, and I can understand how some would not enjoy it. It demands attention and requires analysis, and has some very strong existentialist themes running through it. For me, however, these things were all strong points. 10/10.

Lost in Translation is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's so superb. A favorite moment of mine is when they're all in the apartment singing kareoke and Bill rocks out the Peace Love and Understanding.

Yes, it is emotional without being awkward or saccharine, which is something very difficult to accomplish; it is almost like the movie equivalent of the song Wish You Were Here.
The only thing unrealistic about it is this- I have worked in the Humanities for six years now, and I have never seen a philosophy major look like Scarlett Johannson.

I've hardly seen any woman at all who looked like Scarlett Johannson.

And I was going to review The Prestige, but I seem to have forgotten what I was going to say...
