Laura, in my film noir class.

Already want to rewatch it. Despite its length (88 minutes) Preminger managed to make an unpredictable and compelling mystery. And it even has Vincent Price in it as some so-wealthy-he's-dumb socialite character before he got typecasted into horror roles. It was amazing, I didn't even realize it was him.

What a coincidence, I just finished it again!

Howl's Moving Castle. What is it that people hate about this film? The most disturbing thing about the film was the castle design, IMO, and that was actually pretty creative.

I'm watching the Prince of Egypt on YouTube, since someone uploaded the whole thing and hasn't gotten caught yet (if you haven't seen the movie for god's sake watch it it is amazing), and then I get to this part.

Vampire's Kiss.

It's good in the way that most any other trainwreck with Nicolas Cage in the lead role is "good".

Requesting this thread to be pinned.

Recently I haven't watched any movie, but I'm willing to watch my old VHS tape of the 20th anniversary of E.T: The Extraterrestrial. It's been a long time since the last time I saw the film.

Prometheus again. I still find it to be very well put together, even with its plot holes.

That alien fetus abortion scene still makes me cringe

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

The fact that I've read the book and thus already knew who the mole was didn't prevent me from thoroughly enjoying this movie, which is hands down one of the best movies I've seen recently. It's the kind of movie that pulls you into it's world and demands your attention, from the first scene to the last. The cinematography and the score does a great job of evoking the tense atmosphere of Le Carre's novel, where everyone could be a spy and no-one is to be trusted. Great performances from everyone involved, especially Gary Oldman as George Smiley. Of course, comparisons to Alec Guinness's portrayal of the same character in the BBC TV-series. However, I really felt that Oldman managed to make the character his own. It's hard to say which Smiley who's the best one; because even though I always tend to see Guinness's face on the character when I read the novels, both actors did a great job in bringing him to life.

Now I just hope that the other two books get filmed as well. Especially, The Honorary Schoolboy which has never been adapted before, neither to film nor TV.

The Dark Knight Rises. Saw it again last night, it's still good.

Madagascar 3. All Afro Circus aside, the movie was pretty damn funny throughout and a lot better than the first 2 put together.

Adaptation.

Had really mixed feelings right after viewing it, but letting it settle in for a bit really changed my opinion: it was really good. The ending is pretty bat shit insane though. Did not see any of that coming. It also reassured me that Nicholas Cage is a great actor.

Had really mixed feelings right after viewing it, but letting it settle in for a bit really changed my opinion: it was really good. The ending is pretty bat shit insane though. Did not see any of that coming. It also reassured me that Nicholas Cage is a great actor.

Adaptation is one of my favorite 'serious' films. It's worth noting that Robert Mckee (the screenwriting doctor) is a real person and his book 'Story' is nothing short of incredible and is often referred to as 'the screen writers bible.' All writers should read it.

Anyways, without spoiling it for those who haven't seen it, the clever thing about the ending is that kaufman breaks all of the principles that mckee enstills in him. This is genius because it re-enforces the notion that mckees principles are not rules and there are times when it is acceptable to break them. (For example Mckee tells him vioce overs are lazy but there is a voice over used at one point near the end. There are lots of other examples but I dont want to spoil it)

Really it's Cage's best serious film and quite a few things that happen in the movie are based off real events.

Via wikipedia

"The idea to do a film adaptation of Susan Orlean's The Orchid Thief dates back to 1994.[9] Fox 2000 purchased the film rights in 1997,[10] eventually selling them to Jonathan Demme, who set the project at Columbia Pictures. Charlie Kaufman was hired to write the script, but struggled with the adaptation and writer's block.[11] Kaufman eventually created a script of his experience in adaptation, exaggerating events, and creating a fictional "brother" named Donald Kaufman. Kaufman put Donald Kaufman's name on the script and dedicated the film to the fictional character."

Iron Man

Still wonderful. I had forgotten a huge portion of the movie considering I've only seen it the one time I went when it was out in the theaters, so I'm glad I got to refresh my memory.

Sinister was alright. Just alright though.

The plot is reaaaaaalllllyyyy weak and the premise isn't too original, but it's atmospheric enough and the scares aren't stupid so it was worth the time spent watching it. Which is more than can be said for nearly every single other horror movie coming out lately. Jesus christ.

Also, Frankenweenie was great. Made me feel like a kid again.

God Bless America

Not quite as good as I was expecting, but still enjoyable. I just got a trial membership for Netflix so I'll probably be posting in this topic more often.

edit:

Bridesmaids

I was pretty unimpressed during the first third of the film or so, but once it gets the requisite poop and sex jokes out of the way it becomes pretty enjoyable.
