morgan freeman did a good job as usual but matt damon was a little stiff, he's also 10 years old than francois was at the time too (it wasn't that obvious, but as a rugby fan i could tell).

I think that the point of the scene was to show that Mandela was exerting himself so much that his bodyguard, 40 years his junior, was asleep. The next scene, which shows Mandela collapsed outside his house seems to support this interpretation.

Yeah, the book was great. Didn't see the movie yet but I loved the book.

A Pulitzer book can't really be awful.

youre gonna have to agree to disagree then. i had to force myself to get through it...not because of the grim subject matter or the general lack of action, but his writing style. awful sentence structure.....his word choices.....some of his descriptions made me cringe. and very heavy-handed.

but to get this back on the movie side of things. the editing was atrocious, the narration was unnecessary unless they had planned on keeping the narrative style of the book (which they didn't), kid was a terrible actor (i can forgive that, he's a kid), and they somehow managed to make the whole religious angel/god theme even more hamfisted.

and on top of that, viggo was far from his best.

Angel Heart is a classic noir piece. Mickey Rourke at his finest and Deniro delivers as a very devilish Louis Cifer. Lisa Bonet also is nude in this which alone is worth a watch as far as I'm concerned. Movies like this just aren't made anymore and when they try it fails.

Inception 7/10

It has an interesting plot. But i guess i found the 1/3 of the movie boring. Half way through the movie, 2 people in front of and 2 people beside me were sleeping at the back one was snoring so hard the any one can hear it in a 10 meter radius of a loud cinema. I even found myself moving around every 10 seconds so i wouldnt fall asleep.

I thought the movie succeeded in what it wanted to do. If it was made by some mediocre director this movie would've been a disaster. But you got to give credit where credit is due. I would've rated it higher if they told us the story of the origin of the device they were using to interconnect the subconscious of each other while sleeping. Overall it was a good movie, some may call it spectacular but its not for everyones liking.

Your collection -- while perfectly acceptable -- is lacking in several Coen Bros. masterpieces.

Raising Arizona
Fargo
Barton Fink
A Serious Man
O' Brother Where Art Thou
Big Lebowski

I also don't see There Will Be Blood, there, which is a must-have for any collection. Another PTA must-have is Boogie Nights, of course. I'm assuming you've at least seen it.


Recent films I would recommend:

Perfume
Un Prophete
Der Untergang (Downfall)
Sin Nombre

I guess, it has put me to sleep on 3 different occasions. But, I really don't like the Coen Brothers' Movies. The only one I really enjoyed was The Big Lebowsky.
