If you ever watch it again though, just keep my comment above in your mind. And see if the whole damn thing really makes any sense at all.
Benicio Del Toro's lisp as Fenster, good God.

Fenster: [laughing] Hand me the keys, you cocksucker.
Cop: In English, please?
Fenster: Excuse me?
Cop: In English.
Fenster: Hand me the fucking keys, you cocksucker, what the fuck?

Possibly my favorite Del Toro role right behind Franky Four-Fingers.

He's going to play The Wolfman in the eponymous remake. That looks... interesting

The characters tell the story different four times. In flash-backs, all as the characters tell them, we see the stories. Are they lying, are they all telling their own truth or is there someone who tells THE truth?

it is no. 73

on imdb

I was kidding about Godzilla. I wasn't sure what the japanese film reference was.

Just saw that on imdb thanks to Lila

Wasn't thinking of Rashomon, actually was what I thought he was trying to say with Memento. Without really referring to the story itself,it seemed to me the film could have just kept going indefinitely. But it's been a few years since I've seen it. Sure beat Pirates 3.

Spider-Man 3 - 5/10

The first film was a decent origin story let down by a weak villain; the second installment was IMO a huge improvement and one of the most enjoyable comic book movies I've watched. Sadly, I thought that Spider-Man 3 was an overstuffed bore. It had its moments and some cool special effects but was ultimately ruined by a sloppy script that tried to cram in too many characters and plotlines none of which end up to be fully fleshed out. I mean, what kind of lazy "convenience" writing is this when one of the trilogy's biggest conflicts is resolved by having a marginal character explain the truth at a totally random moment?

Letters From Iwo Jima

9/10. Very well done and I really felt close to the characters. Beautifully filmed too.

Apocalypto

6/10. I actually liked this more than I anticipated I would. The scenery was beautiful and I liked that they didn't use famous actors.

Ocean's 13

7/10. Very entertaining, lots of pretty eye candy. It should probably be the last of the series as they said it would be. But vast, vast improvement on Ocean's 12 which I thought sucked. It was better not having Julia Roberts in it, IMO.

I watched both of the Kill Bill movies the other day back-to-back. The fight sequences were so well choreographed, and I liked the way that the plot slowly unraveled, revealing the basics first but only digging deeper later. I also love the way that Tarantino uses music in his movies. I did miss the style of dialogue used in movies like Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, but overall two great movies 8.5/10

Today I watched the Brazilian movie City of God. It's the gritty, unsentimental story of the neighborhood in Rio of the same name and shows a young crime boss's rise to power and what happens when his power is threatened. Very good character development and cinematography, though a little slow in the beginning. 7.5/10

I actually prefer K.B. vol I to II. I think it better captures the wuxia/spaghetti western blend of style Quentin was going for with the project. Plus, I prefer the soundtrack in I to that in II, although the song in the final film end credits (always forget how to spell it so I won't even try) performed by Rodriguez' band is fucking amazing.

I liked 2 more, too. That huge fight scene in 1 was amazing, but I felt dropped in on my head at the start. I like the way that Tarantino doesn't explain a lot early in his movies, focusing just on developing each scene instead of filling in back story, but it was fun in 2 to see more of why she wanted revenge and how she went about getting it. The last half hour wasn't at all where I thought it was going to go, but I really liked the ending.

The music work better in 1, though, especially in the restaurant/club fight scene.
