    Know about it, just worried it's just NSA's formula/same movie with Mila Kunis and Timberlake. Although I will watch it becauce of lovely Mila!!

    Agree on all accounts. Looks like the exact same movie as NSA. Mila is nice to look at though, very nice. Woody Harrelson is also nice to look at depending on what angle you are looking at him from, if you know what I mean.

    Becos my neph is a Transformers fan :D, and my bro thought that they had used 3D much better than HP.

    Yes, i was commenting on that dork Shia whatever, and that the lady was taller than the man (much like short Michael Fox and Tom Cruise). My bro tells me he's the in-thing (can't remember exact words), Dorky has been signing on many movies.

    Anyway, i won't be seeing a movie for a long time now. Phew !

    "Confessions" (Kokuhaku), a Japanese revenge film. More subtle and complex than the Korean revenge/thriller "I Saw the Devil". Highly recommended.

    INCREDIBLY disappointing for me, I wasn't expecting anything great but it was just god awful. I think I am actually getting tired of Seth Rogen.

    why see "Transformers"? Because I was on vacation in Cape May and there's an unvarying relationship between shore resorts and the kind of films shown locally in theaters.

    Red Riding Hood. Pretty good, nice story and the way they edited the colors and the photography were nice too.

    The Ghost Writer. I really liked this one too, again the photography and the sets were amazing and it has a very interesting story too.

    The Other Guys. I am not sure about this one, it could be the worst movie ever or a work of art & geniality.

    Found out Mila Kunis tragically hired a butt double for 'Friends With Benefits', so no freebies for us. I'll still see it though. Hope she looks as unbelievably smokin' as she did in Sarah Marshall:

    I watched "Fear Me Not" last night. Like many Danish films, it was an intelligent film with interesting characters, but very dark and depressing.

    I saw Breakfast at Tiffany's (missed the first hour).
    I liked the closing scene, man and woman embrace in the rain, and there's the lost, drenched cat in between the two. Otherwise, I am not fond of romantic stuff much.

    You had me at dark. I'm in!

    It's got's a nice opening scene too. But it's mostly a chick flick.

    Saw Captain America last weekend, it was a good summer popcorn action flick. Caught Horrible Bosses the weekend before and that was astounding. Has to be the comedy of the year.

    I agree. I have spent a fair amount of time in Denmark and have found Danes to be pretty happy and content relative to other countries. Nevertheless, Danish films are usually pretty dark. The Danish sense of humour also tends to be very dark, which is one of many things I enjoy about Danes.

    "Crazy Stupid Love" is a mildly amusing comedy with an excellent Ryan Gosling, but Steve Carrell makes the same mistake Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin made -- a comedian who starts to take himself too seriously as a leading man ceases to be funny.

    Isn't von Trier Danish as well? I saw Dancer in the Dark and that's one of the most emotionally heavy movies I have watched.

    I also saw Antichrist with Willem Dafoe in it. Can't really think of an appropriate word to describe this film.

    Yup. And furthermore, von Trier and Levring (the director of "Fear me Not") are two of the original four members of the "Dogme 95 Collective" (von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg had previously written the Manifesto). For those who are not familiar with it, "Dogme 95" is an avant-garde filmmaking movement with very strict rules which was created in opposition to big budget Hollywood/commercial cinema.

    While "Fear Me Not" is not a "Dogme" film per say, it still follows some of the rules such as shooting on location, concentrating on the story and the actor's performances without any gimmicks such as special or optical effects, superficial action and excessive violence/gore. Also the "using what you shoot" rule, meaning no multiple takes and hundreds of feet of film left on the cutting room floor.

    scott pilgrim vs. the world (very behind in my netflix queue). if you have seen it, I thought the universal symbol at the beginning of the movie with the 8-bit music track was pretty awesome. Other than that, the movie was good, IMO. But not really great....

    Say what? The other 'rules' make some sense, but this one seems nutty.

    Happiness. Hilarious black comedy, though disturbing. Surprised to see it wasn't Neil LaBute who directed it.

    Hahaha glad to see I'm not the only Machete fanboy here.

    ^^ I was actually expecting more of it, I think the direction was not very organized and it seems that is hard to do a good representation of aliens and alien ships with so much light. My wife wanted to see Friends with benefits maybe we should had gone with that one...

    One of the best modern films OAT!

    Hot emo chicks, great music, retro video game references skillfully done, kung fu fighting, and Jason Schwartzman nough said.

    Just got SuckerPunch in the mail I'm psyched, but wish I had seen it in IMAX.

    All Good Things… NOT!

    The Roommate… Almost turned it off 3 times, but it was raining so I had nothing else to do.

    If you can find it, see Single White Female with Brigit Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh instead. 10 times better.

    Just watched "I Saw the Devil" last week, it was very good but not quite excellent. I have been looking where I cam find a dvd for Confessions, the ones at Amazon are region 3s.

    I enjoyed watching The Man from Nowhere and The Chaser better than Devil. Mother was an excellent movie as well.

    Any other recommendations?
