    The Time Traveler's Wife. The only thing that saves this mess of a movie is how hot Rachel McAdams is...

    .. That the guy was a rat.

    I'm not sure if English is second language, but rat is understood to be a cheat or go behind someone's back. If you 'rat' on someone, you're selling them out. Damon's character was a rat in that he was playing both sides and giving information.

    Collateral(2004). Fantastic film,Michael Mann has never let me down. I'm not a big action movie fan,but this is one of the best I've seen in the genre....

    I guess he wasn't as 'good' as you thought. I always meant to see the original 'Internal Affairs' from 2002. It's supposed to be very good as well...

    He was working for the police so he could provide Jack Nicholson with a means to avoid detection from the cops.

    Meanwhile Nicholson worked with the FBI and turned in who he pleasesd.

    Not much of a spoiler but yeah, slight plot point. Mark Wahlberg was so good in this film :p

    The acting wasn't really good,(it is Keanu Reeves) and some things just made no sense, but it was entertaining nonetheless. Kind of like Transformers, how it made a LOT of money and was entertaining, but it got such bad reviews.

    Sick boy... A low budget horror film. The story was all right, but the acting from the lead actress was terrible...

    The Beach(2000). One of my guilty pleasures. It's not highly regarded by most people,but I've seen it a few times now and enjoyed it every time even if it is a mess...

    Venus in Fur

    Comic-drama from Roman Polanski explores hierarchies and hidden agendas in male-female relationships. Fine French cast of only two actors, enjoyable and thought provoking.

    Inception. I'd avoided this for years,but decided to give a go. Found it a bit hard to follow after about an hour,but still enjoyed it...

    I really must resume watching movies, used to see one every night till a couple months back.

    I saw the first few minutes of this one night, but maybe put it away since i was short on time.

    Gravity. Wanted to see this for awhile.

    Very boring to me, got onto it for about 40 minutes and then just turned it off.

    winslet won the academy award for best actress for her role, and her young lover is quite appealing ... both do nude quite well

    spoiler ...

    question i dont understand

    if she was illiterate at the time of her crime, then she was unfairly convicted of being the one of the six to be in charge/write the report and receive a life sentence ... why did she not mention this when she was being questioned in court? teh others got 4 years and she got life

    Stop Making Sense. It's fairly good,but then I'm not sure what standard to judge it on. There's no plot,no acting - just a band playing some songs

    The Railway Man

    Strong post-war drama about emotional scarring, healing, resolution. Excellent Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.

    I saw a short docu on MMA fighter Frank Shamrock. It was very good. There's a scene where he finds his homeless brother living under a bridge that was riveting.

    Internal Affairs was a good movie. Watched it the other day and the story is still riveting. Gere plays corrupt very well.

    Watched a rare gem before called Citizen X(1995) based on the real life Russian serial killer Andrei Chikatilo and the almost decade long manhunt for him. Really fantastic stuff,but most people will miss it because it was a tv movie only...

    Oh yeah,that was a decent film as well. The Departed was based on the Asian film of the same (English translated) name from 2002 though: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338564/

    Because she was incredibly ashamed of being illiterate. Wasn't that the entire point of the film?

    Here's what says IMDb

    Spider, a young gang leader, gets in over his head when he robs a notorious gangster. On the run, he's taken in by a sheltered young woman and her reclusive uncle, a legendary mobster gunned down by the same gangster now pursuing Spider.
