Terminator I. 9/10

I've only seen parts 2 (one of the best movie sequels) and 3 (yawn) before, and I heard good things about this one. Not necessarily a fan of "Mr Universum" but he works in this role (and I prefer him as the villain). Much like Alien(s), a scary vision of the future, a very cool looking cyborg and probably the best usage of time travel issues next to Back to the future. I liked how, as opposed to part II, Linda Hamilton was more voulnerable this time.

No Country For Old Men

Masterful acting, cinematography, suspense, the ambiguous ending made me scratch my head but I was cool with it. Not that I pretended to figure it out but I was so blown away by the preceeding action, I almost didn't care. That and I was working on a nice buzz. Cheladas

After only one viewing, I'd give it 8 to 8.5/10

3:10 to Yuma

Christian Bale, Russell Crowe, Western, sounds like a winner
Probably exactly what I expected.

after only one viweing, 7 to 7.5/10

The Kite Runner. 6/10.

Didn't like it. But I didn't like the book either, so maybe I'm just hopelessly biased against it. Some nice cinematography and I pretty much liked the kids that were cast - usually I have a huge problem with kids in movies. But it just left me flat, kind of like the book. I hated the main character and that didn't change one bit. It did however tell me that I should skip Atonement, as I felt similarly about that one.

American Psycho

Brilliant satire of the '80s yuppie culture and great character study into the mind of a serial killer. Bale's awesome in this and the rest of the cast is pretty solid (Willem Dafoe ftw.)

8/10

And I watched one of my favorites, The Big Lebowski, with my friends tonight. Some of them really liked it, but most kind of liked it. They'll like it more when we start quoting it though.

Elizabeth I: The Golden Age

From the God awful reviews, I had really low expectations of this but figured I should see it for Cate Blanchett's Oscar-nominated performance, and because I generally love big sweeping historical movies even when they're bad. I gather from the reviews that it was widely panned because it liberally embellishes historical facts, and because of the melodramatic love triangle, and because the set and costumes overpowered the story itself.

However, I was pleasantly surprised by it, perhaps because of the low expectations. I was pretty much expecting a disaster, but that it wasn't, IMO. Cate Blanchett can do little wrong on film and here again she was magnificent. I really can't take my eyes off her when she's on the screen, much like I felt about Meryl Streep in the 80s-90s. Though my Elizabethan history is quite weak, even I could see that the Sir Walter Raleigh story was probably all wrong but I certainly wasn't annoyed by the fact that there was a focus on the romantic triangle, especially since it involved a dashing Clive Owen. Samantha Morton was wonderful as Mary Queen of Scots, though we should have seen more of her. I basically liked what everyone else universally hated about it. I took the history with a grain of salt and enjoyed the colorful sweeping production.

All in all, though it wasn't near the quality of the first one, I thoroughly enjoyed it and can give an enthusiastic vote for a third installment, Elizabeth I: The Final Years.

Becoming Jane

I had a hard time with Ann Hathaway in the title role and she did little to convince me that the hotter-than-ever James McAvoy would have given her a second look, let alone fallen madly in love with her. It wasn't very good but it's worth seeing for James McAvoy who is so hot I can barely stand it.

Two words: James McAvoy.

7/10

Good fun.

The premise at the end did not work that well for me.
But, not enough to ruin it.

Good to see Spacey working
and Bosworth, very nice.




One small disappointment.

The previews feature Doors music.

and I was looking forward to it in the film.

Like the Kinks music, in Deejilng Lmt.

I did not hear any in the film.
they did have some Stones.
