    I finally watched Moneyball. Been putting it off for awhile but watched it right after the Yankees lost.

    I really enjoyed it and I'm tempted to read the book.

    It Might Get Loud
    docu about Jimmy Page/Edge/Jack White meeting/discussing about their guitar interest/influence

    3/5 - it's a bit slow.. maybe the star power made me expect too much

    watched some good ones:

    The Fly How did I miss this one ? I love good sci-fi. It was made in 1986 and is pretty good.

    Seeking a friend for the end of the world. Okay movie.

    Prometheus. I like work done by Ridley Scott, so I liked this one as well. Though, I hope there is a sequel to deal with all the unanswered questions.

    Grabbers. A sci-fi horror comedy from Ireland =) it was fun, though not as good as Slither.

    Just saw 30 Days of Night. So, so bad.

    Brilliant movie (and completely hilarious). One of the few movies I've seen people applaud at the end.

    It is a great movie.

    As long as he doesn't summon the hideous Boston accent!

    I can't stand any dialogue with that dialect; absolutely horrible! Ben and Matt seemed to make sure every other movie they did included their Massachusetts roots, at one point :twisted:

    Saw "Contact" again recently.

    Still don't understand why so many were completely lost when it comes to the point of that movie :confused:

    Hello, she went to Heaven! Excellent juxtapostion of faith and science...

    Los ojos de julia ie Julia's Eyes. sort of not too bad, about a 7 as far as middle of the road horror suspense flicks go.

    Also so Argo, and dug it, gave it a 8.5.

    Umberto D.

    Stark post-WW2 film by the great Vittorio de Sica ("The Bicycle Thief"), brilliantly done, even more interesting if you read a bit about de Sica's life.

    The Tree of Life

    I like Terrence Malick work because of great cinematography and beautiful script. The Thin Red Line is one of my favorite movies. The Tree of Life has great visuals but I had a hard time getting into the movie for the first 20-25 minutes but as it progressed it become better and very good.
    It is not an escapist fantasy, rather it will make you analyze your entire life. Alas, the place I am right now, doing that hurts and which makes this movie a painful experience in a way...

    Detropia

    Grim documentary on the deterioration of Detroit in recent decades. Great cinematography, no hero or villain here, more pathos than explanation.

    Whatever that last Resident Evil movie was, that was the last movie I saw. Yes it was bad. Yes I was upset that I used money on it. Yes I was expecting it to stink but I went anyways. But before that I saw Moonrise Kingdom which was just fantastic

    I watched The Seven Samurai, in which Toshiro Mifune can do nothing without raising a smile. His character cradles a child whose mother has just been killed by bandits, and Mifune lugubriously exclaims something like, "I used to be this child!"

    My favourite Kurosawa film is probably still Ikiru, yet Samurai has aged about as well as any film you'll see in the historical genre.

    Ikiru is a lovely movie. Have you watched any of Ozu's movies, Tokyo Story for example?

    Apocalypse indeed! One scene shows the mayor discussing a contingency plan to move the entire population to the inner city and turn the abandoned half of the city into farmland.

    Watchmen. Not a perfect movie by any means but Jackie Earle Haley and Jeffrey Dean Morgan nailed Rorschach and the Comedian perfectly. The Comedian/Ozymandias fight in the beginning is one of my favorite all time scenes.

    I tried to watch the Ozu recently, and couldn't make it through one scene. It's one of the fews films I feel that I have to watch though, so I'll be returning to it, or possibly just watch another of Ozu's films. My next Japanese movie is probably going to be Mikio Naruse's Floating Clouds. It's been sitting unwatched in my collection for some time now.

    Seven Psychopaths

    The writer/director who brought you "In Bruges" is back, and the result is a similar blend of dark gangster humor (some VERY funny moments, if you don't mind the blood) and some wistful philosophizing on how we're victims of our own impulses.

    1. 'The Invisible War'. Far from comfortable viwing but an important issue highlighted which needs greater publicity.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandst...nson/2012/oct/29/****-military-shocking-truth

    2. 'The Watch'. Latest Ben Stiller movie about a load of guys who form a neighbourhood watch group to fight green goo aliens.

    Was funny for about 5 mins. Then they ran out of ideas.

    3. 'Total Recall' (Colin Farrell version). What a load of crap. The Arnie version was alot better, not least because it didn't take itself so seriously.

    4. 'Savages'. Good for about an hour or so, before it turns into some formulaic shoot 'em up.

    5. 'Rust and Bone'. Haven't actually seen it but Coutillard is supposed to be amazing in this.
