Quarantine - Good for the first 3/4ths. Almost a B. The ending kills it horribly though and drops it easily to a C or C-.

The Conversation - Nothing but love for this movie. Gene Hackman is brilliant, and Harrison Ford isn't so bad himself for a youngling.

He's Just Not That Into You

I thought it was cute. Certainly a lot of scenes to relate to in the movie. Some of the characters were annoying, like Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Anna (Scarlett Johannson). But overall, a good movie to laugh with and at, and nod your head with in agreement.

8/10

He is good looking, but I wouldn't get too flustered over him. Maybe its because I thought his character was a douchebag.

Yes, his character was a total douchebag, but he was still very aesthetically pleasing to the superficial homosexual eye.

Saw Burn After Reading and You Don't Mess With the Zohan last night

Burn After Reading 8/10
Great movie by the Coen Brothers. It was a bit of a dark movie but really funny. Loved John Malkovich, Brad Pitt and George Clooney in it.

Zohan 7.5/10
This was a funny but also stupid and ridiculous movie. Some parts I cringed at and other parts I almost fell out of my chair laughing. The mother from My Big Fat Greek Wedding is in this movie and all I have to say is WTF did she do to her face. Yikes! It was hard to watch some of the scenes with her in it.

It was good. I liked Ben Affleck and Jennifer Aniston together. Gigi was indeed annoying as hell.

My Sister's Keeper - 6.5/10

I thought the movie often veered too much into treacle, with too many slow-motion montages, long glances and heart-tugging music. However, it was rescued by the strong performances by the girls playing the two sisters and solid supporting cast (Joan Cusack, Cameron Diaz, Alec Baldwin).

Life Before Her Eyes/A Life of Memories.



another pile of cack wasting the talent of a decent young actress Rachael, who really does save the movie in a way.

but with Uma in it, its like watching someone who aint acted in 10 years re-emerge on screen and die, for future roles.

this movie was a fuking mess.

The Boondock Saints

I loved this movie. It was just all kinds of cool. Willem Dafoe gave a great performance, so did the guys playing the twins.

Harry Potter and the Blah blah blah

First off, I don't think any of the HP movies have been any good. Even Cuaron's film suffers from really awkward storytelling and "WTF-this-is-dumb"-ness. But prior to this, my favorite of the films was probably the last one, if only because shit actually happened in that movie that seems to mean something.

So yeah, this is easily my favorite Potter film yet, if only by the sheer virtue of not being complete rubbish. Most strikingly, the film is fucking gorgeous. Like "Holy shit, if this had a great screenplay and more talented direction it would be fucking breathtaking" gorgeous. Additionally, it's really funny. This is probably the first time I've watched one of these where the majority of the characters weren't just tolerable, but were actually compelling and entertaining. I lawled a bunch. Mostly because of Luna. She's awesome. Why the fuck isn't she in every iteration of this dull-a-thon?

Thankfully, this film felt as though it had some forward momentum for a change. It seemed as though things were happening with reason with a tangible threat just beyond the gate. Of course the whole thing still comes off as pretty haphazard, and I'm sure these film adaptations still fail to capture what seems like a fundamentally novelistic story-line. Thus I doubt any of them ever had much a chance of really being great. But one thing they really could have done here that would be made things a lot less trivial was at least give some kind of indication as to the relevance of being "the half-blood prince." I mean, it's revealed as though it's supposed to mean something, and I'm sure it couldn't have taken more than a couple lines of dialogue thrown in somewhere to give non-HP-readers at least some clue as to what the hell that means.

And Emma Watson rocks a pair of jeans.

You know, even having read all the books, I was never too keen on the whole "OMG IT'S THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE!" thing. It was a really weak plot twist in a rather weak book. The movie version made it seem even more irrelevant.

That being said, yeah, the movie looked fantastic, somehow, even though the 5th and 6th books are the worst, they ended up the best movies.
