You missed the obvious thing that didn't need to be audibly revealed. It cant be ex-boyfriends if one of them is a female.

Brooklyn's Finest - 6.1/10 - While it may be highly contrived and over loaded with cliches I still found it to be pretty entertaining. It was definitely backed up with some strong performances courtesy of Ethan Hawke. Wish Vince D'Onofrio had a bigger role. The end was disappointing and pretty formulaic but it was a pretty decent cop drama.

Let The Right One In - 9.8/10 This was utterly fantastic. One of the best films I've seen in a very long time. It is so much more than just a vampire movie. Very touching and even heartwarming at times it really struck a deep chord. It had a similar impact that another cult favorite of mine 'Near Dark' had the first time I saw it. Highly, highly recommended.

Stranded - 4.3/10 - First and foremost I'm a huge Vincent Gallo fan. I'm also a sucker for science fiction and anything ET related. Conceptually this film was cool but it failed to execute. Still worth a watch for fans of the genre.

Never even heard of this one before until recently. Really ahead of its time, with a lot of self-deprecating humor. Good stuff.

Irreversible

10/10

Finally got around to watching this, and I must say, this movie was absolutely incredible. It's pretty graphic, but it was seriously one of the most amazing cinematic experiences I've ever had. I really loved the disorienting camerawork, the graphic but powerful violence, the backwards storytelling, basically everything about it. I really can't praise this movie enough.

Dream Home

Horror

Trailer

They wouldn't slash prices, so she slashed them! OK, that's not really how this plays out, but this is still a pretty solid, super stylish Chinese slasher flick for our tough economic times.

I had a bit of a problem with the subtitles. I don't know, just seemed like whoever did them wasn't that great of an English speaker or something. Definitely felt like something was lost in translation; there were a lot of awkwardly worded sentences. Not really a fault of the movie, though, and didn't cause me problems in understanding anything. It's like a sober Gundress did them.

7.5/10

The Hurt Locker - 6/10

I finally got around to watching it after seeing all the stuff it won. I have to say that I didn't really enjoy it but I could see how some people could. There wasn't really much character development imo and it was honestly pretty boring. I find it hard to believe that many guys would last like that being so careless with these explosives. I know he told his guys they could leave him but he certainly kept them in harms way too often for my liking.

The Reef

Trailer

Open Water meets Jaws is a pretty apt description for this one. I've always liked these kinds of movie, and this didn't disappoint. How they ended up in their predicament was a bit suspect to me(how could a boat that big just capsize like that? It's not like they were in a dingy), and I also thought the decision to swim for land that they couldn't even see rather than wait for rescue on a boat that may or may not sink seemed a little rash, but everything after that was great. A lot of tension, suspense, good underwater photography, and very convincing effects. Had me on the edge of my seat a few times. A bit predictable, with OK acting.

7/10

48 hrs.

6/10

eddie murphy's first movie. he's still a work in progress, and nick nolte's grizzled cop provides most of the comedy. he's hilarious in this, even if he is just playing himself.

10/10
Haunting is a great way to put it. The scene with the young cowboy on the bridge with the gunslinger... wow. It'll be in my dreams. Ebert put it right. That's one of the saddest, most heart-breaking moments in the history of the genre.

That movie depressed the shit out of me. The Leonard Cohen soundtrack was so perfect.

I was surprised to see Denzel cast as Don Pedro but I thought the movie was pretty well cast and acted out. The setting was almost exactly as I imagine when reading the play. Looks like it was actually filmed in the actual Italian countryside and I'd love to visit where this was filmed. Keanu had a small, simple rule as Don John and he performed it well enough. Overall it was an enjoyable version of the play and did the work justice. Oh, and Emma Thompson was a babe back in the day.

70/100
