I liked Brittany Murphy in Girl Interrupted.

The last flick I saw was Taking Woodstock. It wasn't bad.

It made me think of how cruel humans can be.

The Seven Samurai

Proof that you don't need a lot of money, or computers, or color, to make a good movie.
I just saw Up In the Air.

I can understand why it was voted as one of the best movies of 2009! Up with Star Trek on the "Safari Awesomeness Meter"!

Loved the first half of UP that showed the couple meeting and living their life together. The second half with the balloon flight was just plain weird.

Personally I found it even darker than the average Pixar flick.

In the last two weeks I've had a bit of a movie binge for lack of much else to do up here in NY. I've gone through:
  • Sherlock Holmes
    4/5 stars: good, solid entertainment. Not as intellectual as it could have been.
     
  • Invictus
    4.5/5: Excellent dramatization of South Africa's coming of age. The first time I've seen Apartheid portrayed seriously outside of a textbook.
     
  • Up
    4.5/5: The first part with the couple living their life brought me to tears. The remainder of the story was cute, too. Not Pixar's strongest, but certainly not bad.
     
  • Star Trek
    Again. 3/5: I like the movie more each time, but it's still terrible Star Trek. The effects are wrong. The bridge is in the wrong damn spot. The ship is too big. Warping looks wrong. Phasers are supposed to be beams. Starships don't shoot flak. Too many lens flares. Lame alternate universe excuse used to break with canon. Was not a TNG movie that fixed what Nemesis did to Data. On the plus side, Kirk is a cutie pie.
     
  • Taking Woodstock
    3.5/5: Not really my kind of movie, but it was well-executed. One of the few movies that gives you male nudity as well as female nudity.
     
  • Terminator: Salvation
    3.5/5: Nice effects. Mediocre addition to the Terminator storyline.

I'm hoping to see Avatar in 3D at the IMAX before I leave Rochester on Sunday. We shall see.

Last week I saw Julie and Julia. I iked it. I thought Merytl Streep did a great job.

I also saw The Accidental Husband. That was pretty good, too.

For a really great portrayal of what Apartheid did to people, rent Stander. It's also a great crime drama.

Up.

it was one of the few movies this year that i thought translated well going from theaters to home theaters. No reliance on heavy subs, etc.

The Darjeeling Limited.

About what I expected, having previously seen The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.

Yeah, saw that movie a few days ago. What. The. fiddlesticks. :brow: Worst movie I have ever seen. Ended up fast forwarding through big sections of it just to stay awake.



Just watched Pandorum last night. Loved it. Great storyline, great acting, believable characters, the whole nine yards. :D

I saw:

The Hurt Locker
The Blind Side
Planet 51
Up In The Air


All good, btw
Just watched Heaven's Gate for the first time. Legendary flop. Ruined Michael Cimino's career.

Actually quite liked it, but jumpin' Jesus was it ever long. Intermission shows up -- at 2 hours in! The stories you hear about the self-indulgent directing (tearing down the set of an entire town and having it rebuilt because the buildings were "too close together," shooting the equivalent of something like 9 days of film, on and on) ...

Anyway it's definitely a beautiful movie. Lush, epic. But slow 'n' long. Did I mention long?

Alien vs Predator 2

Uh... better than the first one? I think?

There's only one good Predator movie. It has Arnold in it.

And to be good any Alien movie must have Sigourney Weaver in it.

Zombieland, which had a surprising amount of style to it.

FINALLY saw Avatar.

Pretty good flick, and the way they were promoting other 3D movies made me think 3D could easily become the next standard for theaters.

They need to keep ahead of the TV sets, you know.

I read the book before seeing the movie. As usual, the book fills in a lot of the story line and detail missing from the movie version. I liked this book better though its a good movie.

I agree completely. I read the book shortly after I posted.
