I've always wanted to read the books, and my buddy's girlfriend is reading them now and really likes them. My mother on the other hand didn't really like them.

That movie is still playing in theatres around here as part of a special series piece with the others.

I'd really like to check it out.

It was good... I think my expectations may have been a bit too high, though. I had heard it was fantastic from very reliable friends before viewing. I honestly expected a little more... Especially after reading reviews that said there were multiple unsettling scenes.

There was only really one scene that I would consider especially graphic and even that was nothing too extreme.

The story was good, but there was some implausible stuff that happened toward the end that left me scratching my head. The cinematography was solid and it was very well acted, though.

It was a solid movie, but not an all-time great, imo.

I had similar sentiments.

I've had that on my external for a few weeks now. I am very weary of foreign films now because I feel like the subtitles I get with them are really, really bad. I know some words are missing and the languages are being translated literally and not conversationally.

I work a lot now, barely any time to watch TV let alone a movie. I'll get around to it eventually, though.

Inception - 8/10

Pretty good. Not as good as I expected. I thought there would be more dramatic 'floating' fight scenes from watching the trailer but it was good. I did like how Christopher Nolan explained visually the different layers of dreaming with time dramatically speeding up as you move to a further layer. Pretty clever directing. I still like Dark Knight better though but I'll probably rent this when it comes out on Blu-ray so I can see it a few more times to give an honest review. It's one of those movies.

Many of the fight scenes are well choreographed, which is not something I'm using to seeing in many animated movies. There's also some pretty heavy morality here.

7.7/10
Where'd you see it?

tried to watch Youth in revolt the other day. man, that movie was not very funny. I like that kid alright (hes best in arrested development) and none of the acting was terrible, but the laughs just werent there. Seemed like a lame date movie for tweenagers, which is not what I expected. Didnt finish it, so I wont actually give it a rating, but not very good.
