Oh my god, me either! I had the volume up high, and I could not understand nor even hear half the time, any of the dialogue.

I don't think I'll ever watch that movie.
It's really great, and doesn't feel at all Hollywood. But I agree it really does take a lot out of you. The last 10 minutes in particular are really hard to watch. You're just begging and begging that they'll break through the doors, pull up the plane, and somehow make it out alive.
I've never been more physically affected by any other movie. I didn't cry in it, but it left me with such an emptiness in my chest. I still get it when I think about what I saw. It's as close as we can get to the real thing.
--------

On a light note, HOT FUZZ is/was/will forever be fantastic! I laughed so hard in the last half hour.
It has quite of bit of guns in the movie, so if you're having a hard time grieving I wouldn't recommend watching it so soon, but it really was hilarious.
I love the Simon Pegg/Nick Frost relationship.

If you loved Shaun of the Dead, you'll love this one.

9.9999/10
(I found it funnier than Borat, too)

"Yaaarrrrp"

I hate to sound like Lancemc, but that was probably the best movie I've seen this year (so far)

The mix of action and comedy was brilliant and balls-to-the-wall action scenes during the last act were incredibly well done

I saw Hot Fuzz last night as well. I was a bit disappointed. Just a better-than-average comedy for me. Probably a 7/10.

The best film this year by far has been Zodiac. I'm dying to see this again on DVD.

I'm planning to go to a movie with a friend this week sometime. I hope Zodiac is still in at the bargain theater then, because we missed it at the big theaters. I'm too much of a wuss to go see it by myself

The murder scenes really aren't that bad...well, one of them is...but still, they're so beautifully filmed that you WANT to watch them. But there is one scene later in the movie that is utterly terrifying. It even had me pushing myself back into my seat, haha.

But it's seriously one of the best films I've seen in the past couple years. Do yourself a favor and see it if you still can.

I think it is a very good film.

It does a good job of capturing the seventies

I took my daughter along with my nephew to see 'Firehouse Dog'.

I think it was pretty good for a kids movie ... even the adults can enjoy it.

Too late. Anyway, I wasn't planning on watching Hot Fuzz based on the trailer but I guess I'm gonna have to now. I don't trust Pla's 9.99999 rating... how would you rate it?

Disturbia

7/10

I was hoping it wouldn't be too much of a slasher movie and it wasn't. Pretty good story line. If I could do it again I would rent it instead of seeing it in the theater though.

Inside Man (Denzel Washington, Clive Owen, Jodie Foster, Christopher Plummer)

Good story line, not just a typical bank robbery/hostage situation

8/10

Rumor Has It (Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Costner, Mark Ruffalo, Shirley MacLaine)
Aniston is engaged to Ruffalo's character. Rumors where they grew up/society circles about "Mrs. Robinson" character from "The Graduate" and if it might be based on someone in Aniston's family.
No great acting or much surprise here.


meh - 5.5/10

I just got back from seeing it and really enjoyed it.

I viewed Ghost World as a means of seeing as much of Scarlett Johansson's work as I am able. To my disappointment, her role was less pronounced than I had expected, but the film was strong nonetheless- very quirky and open to interpretation. It focuses on an unlikely friendship between an eccentric young girl and a socially awkward middle-aged man, and the manner in which that relationship interferes with the friendship of that girl and Scarlett's character. Much of it, in terms of setting and character development, reminded me of a more ambitious and serious version of Napoleon Dynamite- especially the town, which seemed to be suspended in a late 80s or early 90s timeframe. Overall, a quaint but strong film.

7/10

I'd say 9 or 9.5. The trailer doesn't do it any justice. It kind of plays out as more of a homage to cop/action movies than a parody to them, much in the same vein as Shaun of The Dead (except that was a different genre, obviously). If you love SOTD or British comedy (as I know you do ) you'll definitely enjoy it. It's just a tad too long, but the last act makes up for it. Trust me.
