    Synecdoche, NY: Interesting. Unless I missed something (not likely), the metaphors were rather obvious, to a cinephile at least. 8/10

    Just watching some of the famous battle scenes from Sergei Bondarchuk's 1968 adaptation of War and Peace. It ranks as the most expensive film ever made, especially since over 120,000 soldiers of the Red Army were used as battlefield extras.

    Without a doubt the finest depiction of Napoleonic warfare made on film.

    Friends of Kim

    A documentary that follows Kim Jong II sympathizers visiting North Korea. It takes a critical look at North Korea, but remains fair and objective enough. What made it interesting wasn't how the film was produced, but all the bizarre and revealing footage they got from inside the country. 86/100

    I saw Dark Knight last night and I wasn't impressed. Maybe it was because so many people hyped it up that I expected it to fix the economy or something. Ledger was good, but Bale was uninspiring. Batman annoyed the hell out of me. The voice...god...please stop talking like that. I wanted to cut out his tongue. The plot was average, too predictable. Whenever a major character died, I just shrugged my shoulders. I could bitch some more, but this movie isn't worth the time.

    I'm glad I didn't pay any money to see this thing. Lemmings.

As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Me too, Lateralus. We just watched it this week and I couldn't see what all the hoopla was about. I couldn't finish it.

    I didn't love it either. My friend loved it (and saw it three times in theaters) and dragged me with her. It was SO LONG. Less cheesily eye-rolling than Batman Begins, and definitely some cool action in there, but I didn't really feel for any of the characters. And so little Batman. And Batman making long arduous speeches at a politician? What's wrong with this picture. Guess it was entertaining.

    I guess I supposed the city of Gotham was meant to be another character- the most important character of all, the one all the others were fighting over, but I didn't see anything that made me invest in it- so the stakes weren't high.

    I saw the Curious Case of Benjamin Button over the holidays and it was pretty good. Parts of it were kinda cheesy, but it was much more engaging than Dark Knight.

    It was magical.

    Gran Torino is the best movie I've seen in the last year.
