Gonna echo what you guys said about Hard Eight. Gwenyth Paltrow seemed more out-of-place than I thought Sam Jackson would've been, but all 4 actors were terrific.

I'd rank P.T.'s movies like this:

There Will Be Blood *****
Magnolia *****
Boogie Nights *****
Punch-Drunk Love ****1/2
Hard Eight (Sydney) ****

I enjoyed Hard Eight quite a bit as well. Probably a 7.5 or something around there.

Now that TWBB has had time to digest fully, I'd rank his films as such:

1. Punch-Drunk Love
2. There Will Be Blood
3. Magnolia
4. Boogie Nights
5. Hard Eight

TWBB and Magnolia are EXTREMELY close, though. It's damn near impossible to pick one over the other.

I know you're a big fan of the aesthetic use in PDL, but what else puts it above TWBB and Magnolia for you?

I'll be in Marfa, TX, this week for the film festival and they'll be showing TWBB outside on the set of TWBB before they tear the set down.

I think Magnolia is his best film.

Boogie Nights has grown on me, there was a time I did not rate it so high, but now I think it is outstanding.

PDL I saw once on the big screen and was a bit distracted paying too much attention to Adam Sandler playing against what had been his type casting up to that point. I do think it is a very good film but think many will think it does not measure up to Magnolia or Boogie Nights because it is not the same scale.


I haven't seen Hard Eight but otherwise I agree with all of this.

They also shot some scenes from No Country for Old Men out there.

Yes they did, and also here in New Mexico where I saw Javier Bardem and that hairdo in Starbucks one morning. Definitely an moment.

The Visitor 6.5


This movie is getting rave? reviews.

So perhaps, I expected too much.

Same director as The Station Agent, I'd give that a strong 7.5

The actor that played the father on Six Feet Under has the lead here.
He was much more interesting in SFU
This movie was fine, just nothing too special. I don't like movies that have the nice little neat Hollywood endings. I thought No Country ended just fine. A lot of people were complaining on that one, not me.

Well, this movie is like you read the middle section of a somewhat engaging book.

I would have pissed my pants on the spot.

FINALLY saw Hot Fuzz I didn't think it could get much weirder than Shaun of the Dead, but I was oh so wrong...Still, it WAS fantastic.

Walk Hard - probably about a 7/10

It was actually much funnier than I had expected. I was expecting a few good chuckles but then a lot of dragging, and while there was still some dragging, I laughed more than I was expecting to.

I just watched this too. I agree 100% with your review. Better than expected, but not hilarious.

Just saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall

And it is very halarious! I dnt wanna ruin anything for those who havent seen it but I think it's worth a watch.

Mila Kunis

She was actually good in this movie and her voice wasn't annoying as it usually is.

The Orphanage

First movie I've been to in a long time where people shrieled at parts. Think the last time was The Descent like three years ago. Anyway, I thought it was pretty good but not great. The atmosphere and overall look and feel of the film were superb with the house becoming a character in it's own right. The direction was spot on too, with many instances where I felt the camera was giving us a ghost's POV.

My main problem is with the ending. After giving it some thought I've realised that it does work after all whereas at first I thought there were some huge flaws in logic. But it just didn't sit right with me, like the whole film was building up to something completely different and then *twist* it winds up being something that feels way too familiar.

But on the whole it was well worth the trip, espicially with a packed audience. (The laughter that errupted when the stairs are revealed was great.)
