    I saw Up for the first time this past weekend. Hands down, the best animated movie ever created. Makes it into my top 10 favorites as well.

    ehm I prefer to stream because it's much easier and faster way.
    Oh yeah thanx for the link.If you find Tokyo Story or Tokyo Monogatari too please do post.:)

    oh btw the last movie I watched is Sunrise Song of two Humans.Highly Recommended.

    Imo the best movie of the last year-of the ones I managed to watch- and definitely from the other oscar nominees.So touching.

    Makes me look even more forward to ToyStory3.

    You "normally" like Vaughn and Favreau but you were disappointed by Swingers? What movie did you like with those two? It's far and away their best film.

    I saw The Crazies. Pretty good.

    The Bounty Hunter. Was pretty good and had its jokes, but the Ugly Truth was better.

    Nope. I do believe the thread title clearly states "What was the last movie you watched?" Specify please? :)


    I saw that one in the theater a couple weeks ago. Tomorrow I'm checking out Alice in Wonderland. Is it just me or does Depp look like Madonna in it?

    I liked it. I had been looking forward to it for a long time and it was even better than what I thought it would be. I like to be stumped (which is a rare thing with movies) but this one had me until the end.

    Okay okay, I'll be specific. I just named those because I had already seen them but felt like watching them again. Brother's Bloom was the last one I watched. But the last movie I watched that I haven't seen before was "House of the Devil".

    Last movie I saw in Theaters was Alice in Wonderland in 3D. I thought it was amazing. I've always been a fan of the book. The movie sort of mixed elements from Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass so not exactly true to the orginal but extremely entertaining nonetheless.

    The Hurt Locker

    Very good suspense, great images, well acted, and a good sense of the day-to-day tension these kids go through during war.

    A bit too hollywood at times though (the laid back attitude of the hero) with a few action sequences.

    Not the best oscar-winning war movies in my opinion though. Not too deep in thoughts.

    I found "No Man's Land" (2001 Best Foreign Language oscar) about the Bosnian War better.

    Saw Alice in Wonderland tonight and was pleased. My friends and I were the only ones in the theater to laugh and I adored Chester. I recommend this one...great visuals and well done overall.

    Sounds like you may like independent films. check out "Against the Current"on your TV's 'on demand' menu.

    I watched "Blind Side". It was better than I thought it would be.

    Sandra Bullock looked great in the film as a blonde.

    oh the russian? I was amazed at the size of the production and the special effects it very well pass like a hollywood movie.

    I just watched A Bout De Souffle.What an amazingly good movie.What a visual style and dialogues.It may become my favourite movie.
    I don't know if the rest of the french new wave movies are like that too.

    Just watched shutter island and Edge of Darkness. I thought both of these films were fantastic. If you like Taken, see Edge of Darkness.

    But, which was the LAST movie you saw?

    I watched New Moon today at work and was not happy. I found it to be depressing and unexplained. Mind you, I believe if one were to read the book it makes it a more enjoyable experience. Damn you Edward you insufferable jerk! Ahh...young love and heartache.

    Tomorrow night is Brothers and I will give my thoughts.

    Killer Nerd and Bride of Killer Nerd

    Well I just got done watching the movies Killer Nerd and Bride of Killer Nerd. Its a double feature that includes both movies which is dubbed the "Killer Kollectors edition" on the cover. Killer Nerd is basically about a nerd who was picked on in high school and decides he wants to take revenge on his tormentors.

    Here's the cover art of the original Killer Nerd which I watched probably 10 years ago.(the guy on the cover is the antagonist)

    [​IMG]

    And here is the cover of the double feature which I watched both movies earlier today.

    Watched "The Men Who Stare At Goats" last night. meh....it had its moments, but i thought from the previews that it would be better. Not really a bad movie, but definitely not the best i've seen. just so-so.

    I read this article a while back, that said that Microsoft employs more millionaire secretary's that any other company in the world. They took stock options over Christmas bonuses. It was a good move. I remember there was this picture, of one of the groundskeepers next to his Ferrari. Blew my mind. you see **** like that, and it just plants seeds, makes you think its possible, even easy. And then you turn on the TV, and there's just more of it. The $87 Million lottery winner, that kid actor that just made 20 million o his last movie, that internet stock that shot through the roof, you could have made millions if you had just gotten in early, and that's exactly what I wanted to do: get in. I didn't want to be an innovator any more, i just wanted to make the quick and easy buck, i just wanted in. The Notorious BIG said it best: "Either you're slingin' crack-rock, or you've got a wicked jump-shot." Nobody wants to work for it anymore. There's no honor in taking that after school job at Mickey Dee's, honor's in the dollar, kid. So I went the white boy way of slinging crack-rock: I became a stock broker. Great flick. Going to see How to train your Dragon at the Drive-in while we still have one.
