Jesus is Magic/B- or C+ Straight standup would have been better,but it was okay.

Hostel/The Forgotten/Bewitched

I wish that The Aristocrats wasn't so "clever" and had just let comedians do their thing without all the editing/cuts away. Still an okay view...

No kids.Got a little brother but,hes outgrown that.

Saw that awhile ago.It was okay a little too long and a little too low budget tho.The sequel had a bigger budget,but it was sucky.

I thought Aristocrats was okay. Bob Sagat's version was hilarious. I picked up Clerks 2 the other day on DVD. I was worried I would be let down, but damn it was almost as good as the first one. Great movie, and the 90 minute or so documentary was interesting.

I give the original Clerks. a 10/10 - it's a comedy classic, and other than Annie Hall, has the best comedic dialogue I've ever seen in a film.

The second one I gave a 7/10 to and I liked a few scenes in quite a bit...

Saw a pretty good one tonight.

A History of Violence

It's a solid three-star movie. I kind of wish that the story had been more involved, but what was onscreen was always interesting. Viggo Mortensen is a badass in this movie.

Not sure if William Hurt's Oscar nomination was warranted, though...

I liked that film. Thought it was very simple and effective. Those sex scenes were somthing else.

But for a Cronenberg film it was unusual. Didnt have the usual Cronenberg signitures.

I enjoyed that flick...Its almost so bad its good, kinda good.

Have you seen any Takeshi Kitano movies,Nails? He kind of created the archetype for Mortensen's character.That movie was like a Takeshi Kitano movie with a happy ending slapped on.

But for a Cronenberg film it was unusual. Didnt have the usual Cronenberg signitures.

If you want see something similar with a harder edge, Id recommend :

Violent Cop (derectorial debut;crazy movie)
Hana-bi (aka Fireworks,Probably Kitano's best)
Sonatine (I think this one is one is part of the "Tarantino Presents" series)

Easier to find might his movie called "Brother" it was an american movie I think,so its kind of like Takeshi Kitano "lite",but an okay movie.

He directs/stars in all of those.

I really enjoyed it. It was brutal and funny in some parts. Theres also a message behind it. The government blaming the kids, friends turning on friends, etc.

Ive heard they are making an American version. It will probably suck though unless the filmmaker is fearless.

watched the weight of water last night. pretty good film, it has sara polley in it, Ana from dawn of the dead. i love sara polley, and in this film she gets down with another chick, and her brother, and even this little dog gets to lick her face over and over again the way i would. anyway, the film is very well put togehter, the cinematography is tight, and great directing by kathryn bigelow ( yes, she's the sister of deuce ).
liz hurley is also in the film, my God, she rubs an ice cube all over her exposed breast and then sucks it. i'd still rather be that little puppy licking sara polley's face, i could see the joy everytime his little tongue touched her cheek

this one's a double header, i watched two good movies recently, so here's da **** on both:

Matewan: wow, great film that probably never got the recognition it deserved. Corruption and union busting in poor coal mining towns, i have a feeling the movie is based on a true story. Excellent performances, believeable characters.

Luck: canadian made low budget film starring sara polley. even though she doesn't get naked in the film, i've watched several of her films now and and am starting to think she's got a "no nudity" clause in her contract. DAMMIT!!!
anyway, the film is a real roller coaster ride about gamblers and the 1972 olympic hockey series, which canada won. very good story, the characters really become real and likable in a hurry. the film really pulls u in. there's some shots of polley, closeups, where i actually licked my tv screen, i just wish i'd remmebered to dust it once in a while first.

Matewan was an incredible film. John Sayles is one of my favorite filmmakers out there, especially because of Lone Star.

i recently saw superman returns, the break up, davinci code, mission impossible 3, click

wtf is up with the "son"?
when did lois & superman have sex? i assume it was just aluded to or insinuated. he certainly didn't act like he slept with her by his aloofness and calling her ms. lane. there was no hint of intimacy at all between them. i just didn't buy it.

davinci code, not as good as book, but decent flick.

I thought Superman returns sucked. But that was sooooo last summer! :rolleyes: ;)


I actually thought the son storyline was the best part of that lame film.
Also, in Superman 2 after they shagged and he turned human and back again, at the end he kisses Louis and she forgets everything.
Maybe that would explain Superman's aloooofness.

but she knew her son was superman's baby...i thought she forgot everything?????

anyway...i wasn't impressed with the movie and i certainly wouldn't watch it again.


oh, i did watch the last season of sopranos...
not as good as previous seasons. i didn't care for the dream/hospital episodes. and though i am not anti-gay by any stretch, i found ther whole gay vito think disgusting, mainly because vito is disgusting in appearance and personality. his manner of death was brutal and uncalled for though.

But i thought she didnt know until ther son threw a piano across the room.

As for the Sopranos, i havent watched the last series, and didnt read watever u said. But i am going to download Lost season 3 for xmas, so i can join in some of ur threads that exclude me. :)

Actually talking about superhero films. I have watched HULK afew times recently. I think they ****ed up and didnt make him very angry, but the film looks beautiful the whole way through.

you could tell she knew by her face when lex first asked her who the father was, before the piano incident. plus, it explains why she was so scorned when he left - why she wrote that award winning article.

Superman Returns was a huge disappointment. The baby aspect was silly and didn't advance the plot at all. I felt overall there was too much padding just to allow the movie to be as long as it did. Too long.
I liked Batman Begins much better.

I didn't see the Sixth Season of the Sopranos yet. I have a few of the seasons on DVD but I heard this season wasn't as good so I was holding off picking it up until the price came down. HBO charges an arm and a leg for their DVD sets.

It would have to be a lot better. For me, Superman Returns was about a two star movie.

On another note, I saw Little Children last night with Kate Winslet and Jennifer Connolly. Very good. Todd Field made the film and he has a knack for showing how suburban life often tends to hide a lot of darkness. Much like American Beauty. The sex offender subplot was very sad and did a good job of showing how someone like that takes a toll on their family.

I saw Unforgiveable Blackness when it first aired. It was very good. Combined with reading the book, it makes for a very educational experience. Usually you can't go wrong with Ken Burns. I don't care about baseball so I sat out the epic documentary Burns made on that subject but his Civil War was incredible and the one on jazz was very good too.

Saw Out of Sight and Conspiracy Theory the past 2 days - couple late 1990s films. Out of Sight was okay but not worthy of praise I'd read about it - I was surprised to see it was nominated for an editing Oscar. I thought it tried to be too clever with the snips and visuals and out-of-order sequences when it could have been concentrating on making the end of the movie quasi-believable. It was on okay watch, but Get Shorty - another Leonard novel turned film - was way better.

Conspiracy Theory was decent; I would have liked to have seen Mel's character a little more reasonable - but I guess that's not going to happen. The MK Ultra angle and his CITR obsession kind of spoiled the whole thing, but it was entertaining the whole way through...

Out of Sight - 6/10; Conspiracy Theory 7/10

I watched the host,a Korean(i think) movie getting all kinds of praise,it was Okay,very well directed,but just okay.Dark humor type of thing.If youve seen Battle Royal it was kind of like that in a weird way.

Theres this other movie,Memories of Murder,by the same director,which is much much better.

I liked Out Of Sight but I felt it did better in terms of mood (ex. the romantic tension between Lopez and Clooney) than the story. That was the beginning of when Steven Soderburgh peaked as a director. Then he had The Limey, which I really liked, Traffic, Erin Brockovitch.

Rocky 6- I was disappointed by the actual fight,not that Im a stickler,I guess i was expecting too much.Its like the rest of the movie was building to the fight,but the rest of the movie set the expectations higher than the fight scenes could fufill.

My Super Ex-Girlfrined- I was expecting a really bad comedy,but it had its moments.That girl from the scary movie franchise...is hot.

oh and this kung fu movie called 7 Grandmasters

THE BEST kung fu movie all time.Awesome fight scenes + enjoyable characters= :wank: :luvbed:

I watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on DVD over the Holiday. I dont care how sad I sound, but I love this movie. I was a huge fan of the turtles as a kid, and this movie still lives up to what it was back then. I feel like if people can actually look past the fact that its four walking talking turtles then they will realize its a good film. Its too bad they went away from the serious tone in the sequels.

The first one was good, the second pretty bad but more kiddy and kind of good for them. The third was damn near unwatchable. Like Masters Of the Universe (1987) unwatchable.

I took all the kids to see Night at the Museum. All the outside-the-museum stuff is really basic, but it moves along quickly and the theater definitely seemed to like it. Ben Stiller is pleasant, and is his trademark self yet not crude at all. Only very little kids would be scared. It's a fun watch and gets a boost from a good supporting cast including Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, Mickey Rooney, Dick Van Dyke... 7/10

Finally got round to seeing Elizabethtown on DVD yesterday after I kept myself away from it for over a year due to some harsh criticism from some critics. I was pleasantly surprised, it was a wonderfully told story coupled with fantastic performances from both Bloom and Dunst.

Anyone watch The Firm last night on Bravo? I watched it and it is very similar to Green Street, although it should be expected really.

It stars Gary Oldman and a few other actors who are now soapstars and is basically about football hooligans and a rivalry between two local 'firms' of hooligans. They are fighting it out to decide who leads the 'national firm' to Germany, where England are playing.

It's a very gritty and distinctly British film, but enjoyable. The acting is ok mostly, and the action is cool unless you see it close up and realise how **** some of them throw punches :D

I've seen them all now.

I think that they get better as they go along - 3 might be slightly better than 4.

I haven't read the books, but I would rank the movies in this order:

1. Prisoner of Azkaban
2. Goblet of Fire
3. Chamber of Secrets
4. Sorceror's Stone

They weren't classics by any stretch of the imagination, but Barbershop and its sequel had some characters I liked, were somewhat amusing, and pleasant to sit through. The same can't be said, I'm afraid, for Beauty Shop, which is a weak spinoff that plays like a sitcom pilot - a very formulaic one. What's good about it, though, is how many legitimate, respected actors take a crap in this film. It gave me one of my sig pics too...lol

Glad to see Little Miss Sunshine getting the nominations. I watched it tonight and it's the best comedy I've seen in years. It starts sharp and entertaining and doesn't peter out; in fact, the last 15 minutes of the movie are a very satisfying pay off. Nice to see the little girl getting a Supporting Actress nod, even if it is just to show up in a pretty dress and watch Jennifer Hudson get her trophy

I haven't seen a lot of those movies, but The Departed deserved its noms, and it's interesting that Mark Wahlberg gets a nomination over the loved Jack Nicholson for the same film...

It was on Starz so I saw it for free. Good performances, but for what occurs onscreen, it's slow - and I'm not usually one to complain about that. Depp put a lot of effort into his character, but the writers didn't give us any reason to care about him. And other than one very graphic scene and a naughty play, it's really not a very sexy film either for it to be a dominant theme...

i watched a montreal film called maelstrom last night. it's ****ing awesome, well, maybe not the ending, but the rest of the film is fanatastic. it's about this 25 year old yuppie named bibiane who's life is a ****ing mess. she looks alot like amanda, this career woman i fell in love with last year who was way out of my league. the film has, damn near everything, some social commentary, interesting, great lines like " the abortionist wears a bulletproof vest to mow his lawn ", and of course, the most important thing - NUDITY

Nah the movies fine if you enjoy that stuff.I thought the movie was actually only intresting for about 1/3 of the movie,and I didnt like the ending,it didnt fit I thought.

Starts off with a young girl, 14 yrs old, meets up with a guy shes been chatting to on the net. Hes much older. So ur thinking, he's a sicko right?
They go back to his place, theyre flirting and drinking, u think, she seems nice, hes probably gonna try and get her into bed.
Then he collapses.
She has drugged him, and tied him up, and believes he's a peadophile and starts to castrate him.
But they is no evidence of him being a peado, she seems more ****ed up than he is.....and so on.
Dragged on a little too long, but it was different.

I can't imagine that there were really 5 better male peformances this year. It's a solid directorial debut from Robert De Niro. Nearly 3 hours, but it doesn't seem that long. Good cast too - Angelina Jolie, Joe Pesci, Alec Baldwin, Billy Crudup are also in it... 8/10

Well, we are led to believe she does, but wen he gets loose, he realizes she didnt.
Then instead of calling the police on her (he cant because she finds peado images on his computer), he attempts to kill, her, but she zaps him with a tazer. When he wakes up he is standing on a chair with a noose around his neck.
He gets loose yet again.
Then i kinda lost the plot, but she makes him hang himself. And she walks home.
Im not sure how she convinced him not to kill her.

It's like all the story building they do - the boxer, the two cops' relationship with Scarlett's character - are all wasted as soon as Eckhart starts getting obsessed. The characters are seem like they're in different movies later - I can figure out why Hartnett is doing what he's doing in the second half - too many subplots going in different directions. Either this one was written poorly, edited poorly, or both. What a waste of a good cast. 5/10

watched Grey Owl last nite... good film, the native characters are more interesting than he is, like how they know he's a fake but the accept him anyway. not as good as little big man ( one of my all time favorite films). also has canadian hottie annie galipeau in it, damn, she is fine. i think she is metis ( mixed race, native + french for all u non canadians out there )... here's a pic of her holding her beaver

Borat was ok. But not as good as i thought it was going to be.
I preffered him on the tv show. In the film it was going for shock, and alot of the material was ripped from the tv show.

i watched You Can Count on Me last nite. pretty decent film, not great but interesting - mostly for the characters and the acting. it's about this brother and sister who didn't have much of childhood and how messed up they are as adults. the sister is a hot ginge milf ( laura linney - i've wanted to fornicate with her for years) who does some questionable things. really good performance by mark ruffalo ( but then i've never seen him in another film, maybe he acts the same in every movie) as the **** up brother. really reminded me of myself quite a bit

saw G.I. Jane last, no, i'd never got around to seeing it before. good film, but the political stuff kind of ruined the movie - the "don't ask, don't tell policy " part of the movie seemed funny to me, not serious, although i did like anne bancroft doing a very good imitation of texas gov ann richards. i'd give bancroft the sausage, though, and demi moore's thigh muscles were amazing, i'd like to lick the sweat off them.

i like unbreakable, pretty good film, i always feel a little sorry for jackson's character at the end, i guess because some people who know me in my everyday life think i'm a monster too... but my real attitude is this:
