    Sharkar Part 2. Sharkar is a Bollywood (India) movie inspired by The Godfather. Amitabh Bachchan plays the lead and is India's Al Pacino. Great actor. And Aishwarya Rai is in it - was named most beautiful woman in the world.

    I watched "doubt" this weekend. This movie reminds me of my life at Catholic Girls' High School. I really miss sister Marylin though.

    Good flick. Weird in a way too.

    Don't know Elephant Walk, but A Place in the Sun is fantastic.

    Watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall last night...terrible movie. The cast was decent and the storyline had potential until whomever whote this garbage butchered the whole concept. Terrible, terrible writing.

    I watched it a while ago and thought it was a entertaining movie.

    Obviously it isn't a masterpiece, but still pretty funny. Most other so called "romantic comedys" are utter crap and unwatchable for guys, this one was not nearly as bad.

    But I've got to admit that I was slightly distracted by Mila Kunis, she's so hot in that movie.

    Very, very funny movie if you sarcastic, cuss-filled comedy.

    Evil Bong

    I watched a movie called Evil Bong last night, it stars Tommy Chong who starred in the Cheech and Chong movies from back in the day. Its a good movie that mixes horror and comedy.

    I have trouble making myself see this movie because it seems like I've seen it a million times already: A down and out sort of guy manages to find redemption with the help of a good woman? Is that basically it?

    If you like Tommy Chong, go find "Far Out Man" at once. A very funny movie.

    Yesterday I watched 8 1/2.I don't know I think there was a deeper meaning there somewhere but I just completely missed it.So confusing movie,I don't get why it is considered so good.:confused:Maybe I should watch it again sometime.

    I also watched Nostalghia(Tarkovsky).Very touching,highly recommend it.

    not impressed at all, it had a very veeery promising beginning, I thought it was gonna be a helluva movie but it would have been just ok, IF it didnt last 3 hours!

    Quentin Tarantino should start to digress a bit from his Quentin Tarantino style of movies on EVERY movie he makes

    Idiocracy. Although it was a comedy, I found the whole theme a bit disturbing.

    Inglorious Basterds is a good movie, if you don't mind a dialogue heavy movie then you'll probably enjoy this. It's your typical Tarantino film where some people will either like it or find it boring but I was fine with it. The best scene is when all the Germans including Hitler died in the theater.

    You want a spoiler alert for a friggin' comedy that was released several months ago? What next, getting angry at me if I tell you that Steve Martin ends up making a fortune in the The Jerk? ("Use the opti-grab!")

    I haven't actually haven't seen Inglorious Basterds, and may like to someday, and the knowledge that some poster says the best scene is the one where Hitler dies in the theater is not troubling to me in the least.

    Just finished Rocky II. Wasn't as good as the first, but still compelling nonetheless.

    Just saw the original Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes. Both were very good movies and Charlton Heston remains one of the best actors of all time.

    Just got my hands on two other Charlton Heston's movies (Soylent Green and Omega Man), hopefully have time to watch them some time soon.

    Watched the first and third of Chan-wook Park's Vengeance trilogy (Sympathy for Mr Vengeance and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance) last weekend. Still liked Oldboy the best out of the three due to its more fluid plot, but these two aren't too far behind. All are quite violent films that are also thoughtful at the same time, and I recommend all three :)

    Last night at work was The Last King of Scotland which angered and upset me. I do like Whittaker though.

    That was followed by All About Steve (which I enjoyed despite the critics' negative reviews). Bullock was great in that role.

    The African Queen

    A film shot in technicolor on location in Africa in 1951? With an unshaven, scruffy looking Bogart and a Katharine Hepburn that looked her age? No way said the big studios. So an independent film it became, helmed by loose cannon John Huston, probably the only director mad enough at the time to make this project work.

    Well he not only made it work but this unlikely romance/adventure between river rat Charlie Allnut and well mannered and proper Rose Sayer, who go down river on Charlie's raggedy boat to try and torpedo a German gunboat, became an enduring classic, one of the finest motion pictures ever made.

    And FINALLY, it's now available on DVD/Blu-ray.

    P.S. To CanadianChic, you can find "Dead Snow" on amazon.ca For another good "**** zombie" movie, see "Outpost".

    Edit: Huh... apparently, you can't write n..a..z..i.. on this forum lollll

    A bit of a stretch, but I have been watching a ton of netflix, but no movies (the last one was The Proposal, not mine but my wife's choice).

    I have been watching a lot of Arrested Development on Netflix Instant View. I wish this show was still around.

    Oldboy by far is one of my favorite movies and I agree, the other two before it didn't par up.

    Post your reviews of OMega Man when you get to it.

    Sympathy for Mr Vengeance is the most depressing and nihilistic of the three. Good but a real downer...

    OldBoy is a brilliantly constructed masterpiece.

    Sympathy for Lady Vengeance has a more convoluted story, but it's still a great film. The soundtrack is brilliant, but the music in Park's films is always fantastic.


    Park's Thirst is also very good. A priest becomes a vampire and his faith is tested when a temptress tries to lead him astray. A cast of eccentrics provides a stream of dark humor in a film that turns the vampire genre on it's head.

    For park chan wook fans, check out JSA. Not what I expected for a movie about the DMZ, but definitely in a good way.

    Yeah, aside from the poor acting from english speaking actors and by Lee Yeong-ae (as the "neutral" major in charge of the investigation), Joint Security Area is a fine film about a touchy subject, which shows that people kept apart because of political allegiance, have more in common than they care to admit.

    Yep; Heston is epic. "Ben-Hur" wouldn't have been the same without him :)

    I will, but probably need to wait another week before I have time. I heard 'I am Legend' is a remake of Omega Man and I've already watched the former, but hopefully the latter will be a different experience.

    I agree with your assessments of the trilogy. All three are depressing, but the first movie certainly have the saddest ending for all the main characters. The dark humor scattered throughout these movies are also pretty good in my opinion, especially in Lady Vengeance.

    I would love to see Park's other movies, certainly JSA, and his segment in Three Extremes (its a series of horror movies, with a Chinese, Japanese, and Korean segment). The plot for Thirst sounds like something I would enjoy also, so I look forward to watching it soon :)

    Just saw this myself. Not a bad Hollywood movie at all.

    Go watch "Against the Current" on your cable's On-Demand movies this month if you like more independent fare.

    I just saw "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". Some of you may be aware of the trilogy. It's a pretty hardcore movie so viewer discretion advised.
