    Or I guess what passes for psychiatry in the movies.

    How authentic was Lambs?

    Not sure you've followed the film. People sure have been treated in intolerably awful ways by other people, some appalling appalling things have happened in world history, maybe check em out....

    The place beyond the pines was a very good film. It's long and has some crazy twists. The main message may be a little too preachy for some, and the second half loses some steam. I'd give it a 7/10.

    Zero Dark Thirty- Very good. Especially the last half hour. 9/10
    Hunger Games- Entertaining. 9/10
    Silver Linings Playbook- Hilarious. J-Law and Brad is awesome! 9 or 10. *can't decide*
    21 Jump Street- Funny. 8/10
    Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters- The hell?! I watched it because I like Gemma Arterton. Hmm...more like 6 or 7/10

    Choke is good . Sam is also good in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind . He is a very talented actor and even his short appearances in movies are memorable.

    His last movie I watched was Seven Psychopaths. Its a dark comedy and Christopher Walken is in it too :)

    -The Pianist: Might be might favorite WWII movie of all time. 10/10.
    -Percy Jackson: 4/10. Disgrace to the books. Horrible.

    Watch Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade on Friday night. IMO, this one is the best of the trilogy (Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls should never be considered a "real" Indy Jones movie).

    I have recently seen "mud" "42" and "oblivion". Mud was far and away the best

    Star Trek Into Darkness.

    This felt to be amongst the worst Star Trek film ever made by true trekkie standards - and that is a tall order, there were a couple of shockers back in the day. It was way too Transformers-ish in the chases/battles imo, too standard sci-fi film and not enough of what historically made Trek films different.

    I watched the first two movies you listed. I would definitely give Zero Dark Thirty a 9/10. I thought hunger games was decent but I had trouble taking it seriously during the last 30 minutes or so, i gave it like a 7.5/10. Really was one of those type of movies my friend and I decided to watch cause we were bored one night. I wouldn't watch it again. I never watched 21 Jump Street, I've been told by many that it is really funny.

    Recently, I watched Good Will Hunting again. I usually watch it every 6 months or so. Was struggling this term in college, some of the lines in that film help calm me down.

    Agreed, yet Star Trek 2009 wasn't very Star Trek but it was a hundred times better than Into Darkness.
    The only thing good about this was Cumberbatch. Nearly everything else was pure crap.

    It can happen with dubbing too. I remember seeing Eternal Sunshine dubbed and, having seen it many times, it was just shocking how bad the dubbing was. Some things were just not even remotely similar to what was actually said...

    BTW, District 9 is awesome ;)

    I have Eternal Sunshine with me (along with about 200 other movies) .... let's see how it goes ...

    What was awesome about District 9 ? The general consensus here is that I did not "get it" : )

    Oblivion - Loved it. Was surprised after reading some mixed reviews. The soundtrack, visuals and story were top notch, 9/10!

    I agree. It was utter rubbish imo... just FX and explosions for the majority of the film.

    African Queen (1951) Bogart and Hepburn (d. John Huston) -- enjoyed it. Bogart got an Oscar for best actor.

    Also saw The Grey Zone (2001) -- a holocaust movie, very sad stuff there.

    Gone with the Wind.

    Hattie MacDaniel ("Mammy") was the first African-Amer to win an Academy award.
    Movie has a lovely theme.

    I know there are a lot of Tom Cruise haters out there. This movie won't win any Oscars, but I was entertained for a couple of hours.

    Star Trek in IMAX 3D - Unbelievable. Probably changed the way I will view going to the movies for big event films like this.

    Why in the world would you start with 3? With Saw, you really do need to see them in order. Start from the beginning please! I like 1 and 6 the best.

    I really liked Jack Reacher as well. Saw it in theaters :)

    I was definitely impressed with Star Trek. F'n Awesome.

    Come and See (a 1985 movie about the genocide/extermination in Belarus). Over 600 villages with their inhabitants were killed (burned alive). Seen through the eyes of a fourteen year old boy. Heart-rending stuff.

    All about Eve (1950). Bette Davis, Anne Baxter. 14 Academy award nominations and 6 awards.

    Bresson's Diary of a Country Priest (1951).

    Great work. Can't wait to see his other works: Balthazar and A Man Escaped soon.

    Sentinel, have you seen Robert Bresson's Pickpocket? Speaking of Bresson, I recently watched Luc Besson's The Fifth Element, which I enjoyed.

    Nope. Not seen Pickpocket yet. Saw The Fifth Element many years back when it was released.

    Last night, I saw The Last Samurai (not finished it yet), which I have wanted to see for a long time since i found Hans Zimmer's soundtrack very inspiring.

    Running Brave - the real life story of Billy Mills (native American, Sioux) who competed at the Olympic 10,000m at Tokyo 1964 against the favorite Ron Clarke, and others incl Gammoudi and Mamo Wolde. Shocking is the pushing that happens in the final laps of the race, which actually happened.

    Breaking Away - a cycling movie i had seen as a kid, a local kid in Indianapolis takes on the visiting Italian racing team.

    Good movie, I lived in Bloomington, Indiana when it was made. Wish we had taken our baby boy (who turns 33 in 2 weeks) to be part of the crowd they recruited for the bike race. Bet he would have drawn some screen time.

    Couple of future stars in this one, Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern...

    I loved it since I used to do long distance cycling before i got into competitive running. The guy who was the commentator in the movie was the boy who actually won the race many years back (it was based on a real life story).

    I later watched The Jericho Mile, an interesting movie about a runner in a penitentiary who runs a sub-4 mile with just running, no training, he loves to run.

    Today I saw American Flyer, a cycle racing movie, two brothers who take part in a cycle race called The Hell of the West. Lovely scenes of cycles going up the mountains. Once again shows you how dirty people can be about winning. One chap tries to push another right off the mountain, scary scenes. One of the brothers was Kevin Costner.
