I've gone to the movies quite a few times the past few weeks. I saw Running With Scissors, The Departed, Stranger Than Fiction, Borat, and Casino Royale-- all of which were great, great movies. I think my movie of the year has to be The Departed, though.

Snuck into Man of the Year, and that was the first movie I ever walked out on.


Oh, and I watched Elephant on HBO recently. I want those 90 minutes of my life back. The concept and premise of it was interesting, but the execution I felt was horrible and made the movie drag on with all the WALKING. I swear at least one third of the movie was just the camera following the characters walking around the school. I'm uncertain what the director was going for there.

About the Elephant movie. You're the very first person I've ever talked to that didn't like that movie. I found that movie to be beyond awesome and it actually is the only movie I've ever cried in while watching it.

I think the director was trying to get you to feel for the characters with all of the walking, but it did become a little excessive.

I didn't really like how the two boys were gay with eachother though, that felt randomly placed, but I did love
Code:
when the one kid killed the other, I hated that blonde kid since I saw him in it the first time. It made me happy inside, even though the one boy was still alive.


Elephant has got to be in my top five favorite movies of all time and I enjoy rewatching it anytime it's on HBO.

The walking seemed to represent the ordinary, mundane high school day and the contrast when the action picks up. Great movie. I love filmmakers who actually, you know, take risks.

I watched the Renaissance (the realistic cartoon movie-thingy) recently. It was a decent movie, although the sibs found the graphics a bit mind numbing to grasp.

Otherwise, interesting plot and characters with obscured depth.

I agree completely. Loved every minute.

Code:
One girl I saw it with complained about the first chase in the film, where that guy is doing all the crazy crane jumping and down elevator shafts etc. I personally thought that was fantastic, but there you go :P.

I watched Korean monster flick "The Host".

The only thing that kept me awake in the cinema was my friend's smartass remarks. The movies got mixtures of comedy, violence and drama...but not in a good way. Kind of stupid, really.

I just saw "Fear of a Black Hat" at our final Musicians' Guild meeting of the semester.  It's a hip-hop version of Spinal Tap and is hysterical.  It has more immediate laughs than Spinal Tap.

Now, Spinal Tap is my all time favorite movie and will always have a special spot in my heart, but ya'll gotta see "Fear of a Black Hat" and if you don't laugh your ass off during this movie, then I weep for your dead funny bone.  

My favorite part was easily

I'm very very very glad I didn't watch it.  I get the impression and Ive been kinda mixed.  It's funny though because this is currently largest grossing movie in Korea.  

Latest movies I have seen are

Little Miss Sunshine - REALLY GOOD, but totally not a comedy at all.  I was anticipating this great comedy only to feel my heart throb through most of the movie.  Hell I even cried at one point. Highly recommended

Fuck - An interesting documentary about well, the word fuck.  Definitely entertaining and it had a nice eye opener on the origin of the word, and that is...no one has any idea where the fuck it came from... :-D  And for everyone who thinks it's an acronym...it isn't.  That story was made up by Playboy in 1970.  

A Cheerful Gang Turns the Earth - an interesting japanese movie about a gang of bankrobbers who might quite randomly.  Very stylistic and entertaining

After Life - A really really weird japanese movie about memories and death.  Very interesting though.

"The Host" isn't that bad for a few laughs. Just disagreed with me, I suppose, because I was looking for a better film at the time.

Watched "The Departed" with the sibs. Not really my sort of film, what with all the swearing and vulgarity.

The Aristocats - Not an absolute Disney classic, but still a damn good one. 'Everybody Wants to be a Cat' is one of the best Disney songs, without a doubt.

Goldfinger - My favourite Bond film. Old fashioned, but still damned stylish. The DB5 is the best Bond car.

Goldeneye - Not as good as I remember. It's still good, but it's a little too heavy on the campy comedy at times. It just doesn't work as well without Roger Moore! Crap music throughout as well.

The Spy Who Loved Me - The eyebrows baby! Great Bond film. Moore is the king of the campier Bond films.

License to Kill - Average. It's a good action film, but simply not a good Bond film. The setting is far too static, and Dalton is just too damned serious all the time.

Seeing Casino Royale again tonight, hence me watching a bunch of Bond films.

My favorite bond films are definitely Goldfinger and From Russia With Love.  My favorite Bond car is easily the Lotus Esprit that turns into a submarine in The Spy Who Loved Me.

Worst Bond film. Ever. It feels like some American, Miami Vice crap (no offence to MV fans) that tried to blend with the Bond franchise.

Damn it, that Aristocat song is stuck in my head now. :P

I don't know. Some of the later Roger Moore films are a bit iffy, and Die Another Day is just plain terrible. I'd have to call them worse than License to Kill. That's just my opinion though.

Not sure about the Roger Moore films, but you definitely got Die Another Day right. Someone should box the writers for that one. :P

Currently, In a Disney and cartoon mood. Looking to watch Beauty & The Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Aristocats (curse you, Deg!) and The Prince of Egypt, which isn't really Disney, I think.
