Finally got around to watching Children of Men.

It was great. The actors were cavalier, real and Clive Owen's character really came through with emotion. The film kept me entertained to the very end-- it didn't feel that long at all.

Pan's Labyrinth -  I agree with everyone that it is good and the fantasy scenes were the best.  I was surprised by the violence of the movie.  There were quite a bit of people in the theater and they seemed to be into the movie since several people cheered when

Still need to see Children of Men.

Children of Men

Alot of people are really praising this movie, maybe that was the problem for me, but I really didn't find it to be anything special.  Aside from one scene early in the movie I found it extremely predictable and I don't think I can explain it, but I just felt like there was something missing.  The acting was great, but for me there felt like there was something missing from the story.

I just saw Saw. That was fucked up. It was also damn good. I can't really type much more because I am a bit shaken at the moment (never really been partial to horror/thrillers and it has been recommended to me by by friends), but I'd recommend it.

Watched a bunch of movies over the past few weeks. Too many to list them all, but I'll mention the notable ones.

Watched Pan's Labyrinth and Smokin' Aces today. Pan's Labyrinth was very good and totally not what I expected.
Code:
I know many people will argue otherwise, but my interpretation was that the whole fantasy world was in the girl's head.
Smokin' Aces was pretty decent as well, with quite a few action scenes.

The Illusionist and The Prestige both were very good. I'm putting them together since the premise of both films is quite similar.

Babel - I really loved it. I'm a big fan of Inarritu's other 2 films, and I love how he weaves multiple stories into one movie.

Children of Men - saw it twice. I'd say this is up there with Babel as the best movies of 2006 (that I watched). The one long shot at the end was amazing.

I've ordered Children of Men on DVD. Missed it when it was out in cinemas over here, and with the praise you guys are giving it, and the fact that it has a King Crimson song in it, means me want see!

^It also used Sigur Ros in the previews over here. :D

Our One-Act play won Districts, so we all (meaning, our cast of 20 people) went out to see Smokin' Aces. The movie was fan-fucking-tastic. Over-the-top, super-stylized, high-energy...all the hyphonates are included. Brilliant.

Now I just have to see Children of Men, Pan's Labyrinth, Notes On a Scandal, Dreamgirls, and Pursuit of Happiness. I've probably missed most of the other Oscar-baits already and I'll probably only see the first two in theaters. .

After all these years I finally saw The Thing. Pretty cool movie. Good atmosphere and creature effects.

Saw Pan's Labyrinth yesterday. I missed it when it was out in mainstream cinemas, but the nearest arthouse cinema was showing it so I thought why not?

It turned out to be completely not what I expected. I thought that the emphasis was going to be on the fantasy world, but it turns out that the war movie aspect of it was the main thing. And it was a lot more violent than I thought it would be. Still a very good movie though - the same quality of film as Children of Men in my opinion.

My Children of Men DVD popped through the door this morning, and I've just given it a watch.

I agree with the rest of you, pretty amazing stuff! That long continuous shot towards the end was incredible.

Saw Children of Men last night and Pan's Labyrinth about a week ago.

Children of Men was fucking powerful. Movies don't usually make me cry, but at least 2 seperate points in that movie I was crying. It was fucking amazingly done, especially the fucking 9 minute long camera shot that my friend pointed out to me.

Pan's Labyrinth was also awesome, but not as emotionally stimulating for me. However it was extremely haunting, and I really liked the director (who also did Hellboy, which I also liked). The guy who played the Faun and the horrible monster thing was fucking awesome--and he doesn't even speak spanish; he memorized his lines.

Yeah the guy memorized the lines, but got dubbed over. He's apparently also doing the silver surfer in FF: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Grave of the Fireflies - One of the most heart-wrenching films I've ever seen. Seriously.

I went to see the re-release of The Departed with a couple of friends. Very, very entertaining. Those last five minutes were freakin' amazing :P

The Guardian -  Okay, I kinda half watched this movie since I was playing Hotel Dusk at the same time.  So yeah, Hotel Dusk was more interesting than the movie.

I've also been watching Korean horror movies.  I watched D-day and February 29.  They aren't going to give anybody nightmares, but they are still entertaining.
