I really liked it, the artistry of the fantasy world was just beautiful. That scene with the guy with his eyes in his hands (I think his name is the pale man) still gives me chills sometimes.

Yea that part is wild because his brothers had NO IDEA what he was capable of until witnessing that being that he hadn't spoke to them in years presumably.

Only thing (this is such a minor gripe) that made it a lil corny was the overuse of the '20%' line after homie was leakin on the concrete

I can't watch Denzel anymore, I'm not sure I ever could. Even Training Day. I just feel like I'm watching Denzel and not the character he's playing.

I know what you mean. He's def a 'movie star' and not a method/character actor.

I will say he's still a good and effective actor but he doesn't let his character consume his persona the way I appreciate in the great ones.

Denzel is still a beast tho and has amazing screen presence and has mastered a lot of physical nuaces in acting

I don't even think that's it, because I know of a few actors who aren't method that I don't notice that I'm watching the actor.

Could be I just don't like him as an actor. I'm not even sure at this point.

that's a really good way of putting it. i think he has such distinct mannerisms and manner of speaking that his persona overwhelms the roles he's suppose to be encompassing. In his movies after 2000, it does feel like he's just doing denzel in a different costume.

I don't think it was like that in his earlier films tho, in particular Soldier's story which I saw recently.

I feel the same about Leo Dicaprio's performances recently.

Agreed. The little ticks (saying "eh"/"yeah" after sentences and the constant squinting) in a number of his roles have really bothered me.

I don't get that feeling from Dicaprio as much as other people. His main problem to me is no matter how much neck beard he can grow he still looks like he's Basketball Diaries young.

I can look down his IMDB list and pick out at least 8 movies where I don't notice It's him when I watch them, but I know for a fact without even seeing it, it'll be weird to watch him in J. Edgar.

You nailed it and I feel the same way about Will Smith too.

THE WACKNESS- 7.4/10


This type of corky film is right up my alley. Loved the characters cept that step daughter b!tch and I guess she was meant to be flaky and unlikable.

The lead character Luke and the friendship he had with Ben Kingsley's psychiatrist character, along with the hip hop music/culture, makes the film a unique and endearing movie.

Some of the acting left a tad to be desired but I love this movie. If you enjoy 1990's NYC and hip hop, def check it out but there's some very memorable elements in it as well.

My man supplying those in need of greenage from the Ice Cream wagon is

Seriously, Ben Kingsley kills it in his role and his character takes the film from almost generic to embracing counterculture. This movie is a killer little gem that undoubtedly went overlooked. Glad I watched again

The Girl Who Played with Fire (8.5/10) - Didn't expect it to be a direct sequel. I figured same characters, different story. I actually preferred the story of this one over The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Only thing it lacked was shocking scenes as the first had and an ending that wraps everything up (obviously things were left unfinished for the 3rd). As I said though, I thought the story was overall more intriguing.
