Tulpan - 8/10

The film is set in Kazakhstan (real that is, not the Borat version ) and is about a young man who returns from the navy to live with his sister's nomadic family in the steppe, and must win the hand of the only unmarried young woman around in order to get his own flock. The romance though doesn't play as big a part as I'd have thought and there's very little actual plot; the movie mostly focuses on depicting the daily life of the family in a harsh, desolate region that nevertheless has its own peculiar beauty. Slow-paced but very captivating. I think though that I've learnt more about sheep giving birth than I've ever cared to know I also found it a tad distracting that the dialogue was half-Russian and half-Kazakh so I constantly switched between reading/not reading subtitles.

The Soloist

Yes it's corny and schmaltzy and all that but I enjoyed it anyway-mostly for RDJ's performance. Jamie Foxx's just didn't ring true to me. Robert just continues to amaze me with his acting skills, and his attractiveness is at its peak too. The scene in which he's talking to his ex wife about the earthquake and the situation with Mr. Ayers just killed me.

9/10 for his performance

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

You know those movies you have in your Netflix queue, that you added way back when because at one point you wanted to see them, and just didn't have the heart to take out of your queue? And then they bump to the top of your list but you don't feel like watching them because you're in the middle of yet another TV-on-DVD show marathon so you keep pushing them back? And then you finally figure that you'll watch it?

I have a lot of those movies in my queue, and this was one of them.

A lot of it was really dumb and too over-the-top, and the cheesy lines were eye-rolling, but as far as continuing the Terminator story, I kind of dug it. I hadn't realized this movie's plot was "this is when the shit goes down."

Good call. Best Picture 2009?

Have you seen Chaplin or Two Girls and a Guy?

The only saving graces of this movie are the truck chase sequence with "Arnold" riding on the back of that crane, the general hotness of the T-X, and how epic and bleak the ending was. What an incredible way to end a shitty movie.

Let's hope Salvation fares a lot better than this.

Die Hard, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Aliens top it, son. But that's about it, from what I've seen, at least.
