Unfortunately its average rating is only 6.4/10. That usually indicates that it will drop to somewhere to the low to mid 70%.

I watched The Good German last night. Very good contemporary film noir. Reminded me of classics of the genre, and it also reminded me of Chinatown. Recommended. 8/10

Wasted life watching Men In Black 2.
2/10
Horrible movie. I didn't even laugh or slightly giggle at any of the scenes that were meant to be funny. I am ashamed of Will Smith for taking that awful role again. It seemed as though he didn't even skim the damn script; he only saw his check and took it. I don't blame him, but at the same time, as a fan of most of his acting work, I can't honestly say I'd even give this movie a second watch even a few years down the road.

I saw Melanchalia on Friday night, and it was pretty ****ing excellent.

For anyone into metaphor, this is about as loaded a movie as you're gonna find, even if it's a little on the nose in spots.

Not unlike Drive, I did have a bit of a tempo issue with the first act. But it was a smaller issue here than it was in Drive for me. The long wedding just made me think of Deer Hunter actually.

Visually it is really arresting. Lush, was the word that jumped to mind.

The three main performances were all excellent, but I'd give a particular nod to Charlotte Gainsbourg, and sort of hope she gets a best actress nod out of this, although they may see her as supporting, which wouldn't be the first time that award was doled out with people just not paying attention.

I would give it a low 90s, and based on the critical reviews I've seen so far, would say it's being underrated. It's not the feel good story of the year, but that doesn't make it any less powerfull.

It's a shame it won't hit the American conciousness, because it's the type of film that merits some discussion. But I will say this, I went to catch a 7 pm show, and it was sold out. It's an extremely small theatre admittedly, but it's the first time I've ever been there and had something sold out.

My next hope is to catch Margin Call up there before they cut it's release.

The Hurricane
9/10
This was definitely an excellent movie. It was a bit slow in some parts, though, which is why I can't give it a complete 10/10.
Denzel Washington plays an up-and-coming boxer who is charged with a murder he didn't commit. He writes a novel about his life, which draws the attention of a young African-American male who lives with Caucasian Canadians. The Canadians and the young boy try their best to get an appeal for Hurricane.
The movie is very interesting overall. Plus, it's based on a true story, which has been exaggerated just a bit, so that makes it just a bit more interesting, IMO.
