Flags of Our Fathers


7/10

Good movie, however after seeing "Saving Private Ryan", there is no other better war movie in the past 10 years.
Ryan Phillippe's performance on "Flags" was weak. No emotion whatsoever.
I also saw the other Clint Eastwood movie "Letters from Iwo Jima"
7/10

A Scanner Darkly- 7.5/10
Interesting & nifty concept, good performances, captivating dialogue, story had both funny & sad elements . It was not great but still managed to be good all around.

Harsh Times - 5/10
Christian Bale as an ex-soldier in south LA even speaking spanish from time to time and being a very gritty character as he drifts around the streets in violent escapades. I'm still trying to digest that, his performance was good, no doubt but the movie had nothing much going for it otherwise. It seemed rather pointless and stale and the kind of movie that's been done 100 times over.

Illusionist.

7.5 / 10.

I thought it was good, but I kinda saw what was coming. There was no "OH SHIT, SON" moment for me, though I think they were going for it.

I liked The Illusionist a lot, but preferred The Prestige. Now THAT had an "OH SHIT, SON" moment.

I very much enjoyed Broken Flowers. Bill Murray is excellent in a very understated role, and the ending is creative, avoiding cliches. There is a great deal of strong commentary on aging and family, and also some genuinely funny moments. By the end, I really sympathized with Murray's character.

8/10

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

I was so excited to finally see this because I had heard about how amazing it was, yadda yadda, the usual. I get to watching, and it really is a future comedy classic. The sight gags are great, it has so many quotables, not just from Borat, but the idiots he interviews (especially during the Rodeo scene). After I finished, I sat there digesting what I had been watching for the past hour and a half and was unsure of what to think. Then my buddy and I were rattling off one-liners and scenes from the movie and that's when I knew it was genius. My only gripes were that some jokes wore thin after a while (about 700 Jew jokes?) and the naked fight was the most uncomfortable scene I have watched since The Gimp violated Butch and Marcellus in Pulp Fiction. After repeated viewings, this rating will probably rise.

8/10

Added bonus - I now have a term for anyone who awkwardly hits on/flirts with girls or is just a creep altogether: an Urkin!

Little miss sunshine.

7/10

Wacky family goes and enters the beaty contest. Funny jokes (A. Arkin is great as the druggy Grandpa), even if a tad too Hollywood-ish towards the end (the silent speaking, the family dance in the end, the making-up between them). Highlight of the movie is Olive's dance in the end.

My son is a horror movie buff and recently borrowed Suspiria from a friend of his. It's an Italian movie by Dario Argento from the 70's . The story is about a girl who enrolls in a ballet academy that's run by a coven of witches. Overall the movie has kind of a creepy, unsettling feeling but isn't particularly scary. However, the opening scene is about the most disturbing thing I have ever watched. Anyone who's seen it knows exactly what I'm talking about. I was bothered by it for days afterward.

Overall 6/10

I watched a real stinker of a movie last night. It was called Trixie and starred Emily Watson as a bumbling private detective. It was one of those movies that from the cast you'd think it couldn't possibly bad, but even Dermot Mulrooney, Nathan Lane, Brittany Murphy, and Nick Nolte couldn't save it. It tried to be funny and serious and mysterious all at once, and it was really dumb. I watched the last 45 minutes or so of it on fast forward.

There were a few mildly funny parts. I'll give it 2.5/10, but I think most of that is just because I'll watch most anything that includes Nick Nolte.

Fast Food Nation - 1/2 good movie, 1/2 pretentious writing that was basically trying to beat you over the head with the message they just told you in the first half of the film. It was almost like they had two different writers and directors for the movie.

Read the book instead. Much more informative, entertaining, and not at all talks down to you.

Just came home from the cinema after seeing Reign Over Me this evening. What a beautiful movie .. heart warming and heart breaking at the same time. Just wish I (or my friend) bought some kleenex along

Children of Men 4/10

I couldn't wait for this movie to end. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because I really enjoy watching Clive Owen, but thats about it.
