A couple of nights ago, I watched The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour with my guitarist.  This is one movie where you absolutely NEED to watch it in an altered mind state; doesn't necessarily need to be a mindstate on acid or mushrooms or even weed, but at least watch it when you're really drunk or in that stage between wakefulness and sleep where you're fighting to stay awake.  

If you watch it sober, then it's really no fun.  I think they knew exactly what they were doing when they made this film because there are parts where if you're tripping, you will react in a certain way.  

A great part is the song "Death Cab For Cutie" sung by a comedy blues band (and, yes, this is the song that the band Death Cab for Cutie got their name from).  My band is working on learning that song so we can cover it at shows.

I definitely need to watch this movie again, but drunk.

I watched The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, thought it was pretty friggin' good. The humour was very British, which naturally works for me, and the general randomness also appealed to me, so overall, very good.

Also watched Mickey Blue Eyes, because it always cracks me up :P

Man on Fire
It was okay, I guess. Three big failings though:
1) The dialogue. I mean seriously, what 10 year old talks like Dakota Fanning did in this film? Or how about that nun, who asks Denzel - out of the blue - if he believes in God. And then he starts quoting Scripture? Not even Christopher Walken could make his lines sound convincing, and that's when you know you have a problem.

2) The editing. Yeah, sure, it's supposed to be edgy and reflect Denzel's character's descent into madness, but all it does is frustrate and annoy the viewer.

3) Marc Anthony. The man can't act to save his life.

But I still enjoyed the flick, mostly thanks to some pretty clever torture scenes. It was too long, though - 2 hours and 40 minutes is stretching it.

Two movies:

- Easy Rider - I wasn't really sure what to expect from this, especially plot-wise. Luckily there wasn't really much of one. I enjoyed it though.

- The Breakfast Club - This was a lot better than I expected. It was on late last night, and I thought I'd fall asleep during it. I found myself actually quite enjoying it! Sure it was a bit cheesy at times, but I found it fairly interesting and funny at the same time. I like when a movie surprises me.

Howl's Moving Castle -  Okay you know a movie is good when you want to run out and get the book it's based on.  It's fantastical and its got romance and humor.  Had I seen this before the Oscars, this would have been the film I would have been rooting for in the animated category.    Go watch it people.

Oddly enough, I saw parts of Howl's Moving Castle this week as well (my school did a showing of it, but I missed a good chunk of the middle) and it totally made me want to go out and buy the book.

I finally watched the rest of Shaolin Soccer. It was good but now I need to watch the original Chinese version on the TV. Is there a big difference between the two?

I bought and watched The Legend of Zorro. It was entertaining, though they were obviously trying to make a statement about the current status of the country which I can't say I enjoyed since it was so blatant. Still a good movie, but not as good as The Mask of Zorro, not by a longshot.

I just got finished watching Pride and Prejudice.  It was a bit slow in the beginning and they did cut a lot out compared to the Masterpiece Theater version.  It's understandable since they had to cram the whole book into a movie and not a mini-series.  I also had trouble making out what they were saying since they were talking so quickly.

I watched The King of Comedy last night, and thought it was really good. It's a shame it's so underrated, IMO this is one of Scorsese's best, in a different vein to his masterpieces, and De Niro gives one hell of a performance in it, again in a different style to the sort of characters were perhaps more used to seeing him play.

As to the above comment, I saw Howl's Moving Castle.  It was indeed good, but it feels a bit riddled with plot holes (which, Im noping, the novel clears up).

Anyways, I watched The Notebook.  And I'll be damned, but its one of two movies that ever made me cry, regardless of how predictable or even sometimes sappy it was.  It was good. :)
