    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.

    Yeah, yeah, we get it, we're all connected. The wisdom here is a little banal but the Wachowskis are dazzling filmmakers and this film is visually stunning; it needs to be to keep you involved for 2 3/4 hours.

    The History of Computer Chess: An AI Perspective (Documentary)

    One of the most interesting parts of the Q&A at the end was when attendee asked a question
    'What is the single most important thing you learned from 40 years of computer programming in AI field ?'

    (David Levy answered)
    Problems that normally required human intelligence for solving problems
    can be solved by computers without using any intelligent techniques

    Savages - 7/10. Not that great. Del torro is good, but the story is pretty ridiculous, the post production is excessively washy and it's hard to really care about anyone in the story.

    The Watch - 7.5/10. A simple lighthearted comedy that is fun if you want to shut your mind off for a bit and watch a standard hollywood buddy movie.
