    Don't Laugh!! I was flicking through channels and was watching this movie but didn't know the title of it and I got really into it. About a half hour later I hit info and I was watching Step Up 3!! Those dance scenes were unbelievable!! Robot guy made the movie. Highly reccomend.

    The third part of the film was just incredible.

    Saw Harry Potter tonight. Pretty decent, though I can't understand for the life of me why they didn't develop Draco's character more (haven't read the books so don't know if its different there). I also thought Bellatrix deserved more time in the film. Alan Rickman was pure class as always.

    I've read most of em, and i don't think think Draco is developed much, although maybe in one book there is something about his wand and a lot of fight about it. (Either last or second last book). But character-wise, Draco and his sidekicks are shown as stupid.

    Snape is acted well, but somehow in the latest one i felt it was a bit forced, esp how he talks extra slowly at one point. I felt it was overdone for effect. Snape becoming emotional was a bit much, iirc.

    Yeah, I remember that part. He was like talking to everyone when Potter and company got into Hogwarts. Agree with you there.

    I just felt like Draco's whole conflicting feelings on sort of pleasing his father and following Voldermort's orders vs. him not actually being that bad of a guy (like when he didn't tell on Harry in movie 7 part 1) wasn't explored enough.

    Saw the first half of "I am Kalam" an Indian movie. Was nice and light-hearted. Cute kid.

    Unfortunately, "Confessions" does not have a region 1 release yet. I own the UK Blu-ray (region B), but both my dvd and blu-ray players are region free.

    Haven't watched a lot of Asian cinema lately, but aside from "Confessions" and the films you have mentioned, the best is probably Takashi Miike's "13 Assassins". I saw that at a film festival but I believe it has been available on DVD/Blu-ray region 1 since July.

    Thanks, that's what I thought about Confessions. I already have 13 Assassins on bluray(with digital copy as well), maybe I will watch it again soon or wait on a snowy day(not sure if I can wait that long :)

    "The Guard" is in theatres now, a mature cop and crooks comedy with Don Cheadle and a large Irish cast, the film having been made in Ireland. Lots of dark and ironic humor, some of it hilarious, highly recommend this film.

    Sucker Punch, I found it interesting, like if the make a remake of "Instinct" and include scenes of Hopkins character mind while he was contemplating the world through the window.

    This weekend I also saw Koran by Heart, I think it is a beautiful documentary, really moving.

    Attended a sneak preview of "Fright Night" last night. It was better than I thought it was going to be. I thought the 3D was totally pointless. My girlfriend, Imogen Poots, is in it.

    Last night Captain America with my GF.
    good summer movie, but won't be too successful here in Germany. It started only 3 days ago here and there were not more than 20 people in the audience. I guess, too patriotic for germans.

    I liked it, and am excited to see the Avengers.

    Blood Simple. Forgot how good this movie is… and how long ago it was made.

    The Resident. Creepy.

    Contagion.

    Take a bottle of Purell with you. Ten minutes into the movie you'll be overcome with an overwhelming desire to wash your hands.

    Just saw The Machinist last night, great movie. Christian Bale was so skinny, he looked like a Holocaust survivor.

    I watched 'Lonely hearts' which stars John Travolta, Jared Leto & Salma Hayek. Violent and in a way disturbing movie, but worth a watch.

    "The Debt," very much like "Munich." wrestles with the problems revenge presents to the soul, but also has a very contemporary political sub-theme of what happens when a lie is maintained in the interest of government policy. Highly recommended.

    E:60 movie "Catching Hell" about the 2003 Cubs and Steve Bartman incident. If you really want to see how sports can affect people in good and bad ways, watch this movie.

    "Killer Elite" -- everyone into the pool....of blood. Bad guys versus worse guys. The only times the guns stop is for the fists to fly. A silly little romantic sidebar to keep your lady from being angry you brought her to see this.

    (note -- my wife, who gave up socialism for anarchism, appreciated the craziness of the film, and found the romantic element pleasing)

    Just finished "Don't Be A Men ace to South Central While Drinkin Your Juice In The Hood". Great spoof flick of all the black hood movies from the early 90s.

    Being from Oakland, I really want to see "Moneyball", but I won't pay 10 bucks for a theatre ticket with a tiny screen. I'll wait until it comes out on dvd, then rent it for a buck.

    Instead of watching 'Inside Man' as I wanted, I was forced by my girlfriend to watch Bad Teacher.
    Bad movie, good legs.

    Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. It was good, but it didn't blow my mind. In fact, I have seen a movie that really got my goat in a long time.
