Watching the Departed again,, unfortunately on tv. I might just pop in the DVD and watch all over again. It gets better every time. Its funny how ya'll rate movies with weird numbers like 5.2, 7.3, or a 8.8... wtf??

whatever this movie is great.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

8/10

The action scenes were very cool and it was a humorous movie, too. RDJr. was very amusing and convincing as an eccentric but brilliant Sherlock (or Sherley as his "brother" in the movie refers to him) Holmes.

Better than the first one I'd say.

Watched Ink, 9.4/10
A lovely not-your-usual story. I like those type of movies, just drops you into some kind of fantasy world. Unlike the Pan's Labyrinth, in this one worlds did mesh together for me, and it all made sense in the end. The weak part - the defenders were kind of... Unclear. Some random blokes that's all
But a pleasurable watch.

Space Jam - 8/10

I hadn't seen this since I was a kid. I had actually forgotten that its quite funny and for a non-actor, MJ isn't totally embarrassing. Bill Murray is quite good in this too.

"Larry, I'm gonna give us both twos back there. We weren't in any emotional state to putt."
"That seems fair."

Oscars haven't happened yet. But speaking of, there's some solid flicks in there, but holy shit, talk about a weak Best Picture winner. If The Help wins that shit, so help me God...

i sat through all agonizing 238 minutes of Gone With the Wind at the local independent a few nights ago. it was long and... i was actually going to write tedious, but i'm not even sure i could call it that, which is a special acknowledgement in my mind for a movie over twice as long as most. the characters, well mostly scarlett, remained so mysterious for so long that you just wanted to know which direction they'd finally be pulled. i loved every minute of it, wasn't familiar with the book or any of the characters going in, all i knew was that it was a tragic tale of the old south's defeat. couldn't have asked for a better way to spend $6 or a sunday evening.

I love revival showings of stuff. I went to see The Godfather a couple summers ago at a revival, and in spite of it being a movie I've seen maybe a thousand times, and in spite of it not being shown in the best theatre in the world, there's some different about seeing it on the big screen. It draws a larger percentage of one's focus or something.

Can you believe Victor Flemming directed that and The Wizard Of Oz in the same year?

? You loved it, but found it agonizing at the same time?

Now add subtitles and you're ready for the 207 minutes of Seven Samurai.

Tree of Life.

n/a / 10. Turned that shit off after 30 minutes. I have the fucking Discovery Channel at home. I don't think I've ever watched a more pretentious, meandering 30 minutes of film in my life. Undoubtedly some of you will act as if I'm some moron with a short attention span, but it just was not in any way engaging, interesting, anything. Shot of scenery + whispered 'deep' phrases. No thanks. The film forces its supposed subtlety down your throat. Ugh.

BTW the last film I said "f*ck this" to was Dr Doolittle when I was like 8.

lol, i wouldn't have if wiki hasn't just confirmed it... that's unbelievable, i had no idea he did Oz


oh and kevin, that was just a shitty descriptor for how long the movie was. i was fidgety and consistently looking at the clock... especially the last hour of either side of the intermission. i loved every second but i never really fell into it to the point that time flew by. which i guess made each of those four hours, to some minor extent, agonizing.
