    Little Shop of Horrors (1961)-all my favorite movies tend to be from the 50's and 60's and this is no exception. I also love Breakfast at Tiffany's and The Graduate. I don't know what it is that makes movies from this time so enjoyable, but why aren't they this good anymore?

    Dr.Who: Talons of Wiang Chiang (A very good episode, the first 2 parts I found sort of boring but part 3 it began getting really good)

    I saw Terminator Salivation, the movie about Terminators that drool.

    Not half bad considering I had no expectations. And I'm thankful that it had something more than video game shootouts in a grungy barren wasteland.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger's brief appearance (as a CGI puppet) was appreciated. And the general feel of the film had far more in common with Cameron's vision than Terminator 3, which played like your average TV action movie of the week.

    And I was also surprised at the variety of different cyborgs featured. They weren't all Transformers.

    Though particularly disappointing was Danny Elfman's underwhelming score.



    EDIT: Oh yeah, and I think the movie Surrogates, starring Bruce Willis, will be the sci-fi event of the year.

    I just signed up for Netflix, so I've been watching a lot lately.

    Before Sunset: I enjoyed it, but I didn't connect with it the way I had Before Sunrise. Part of what I loved about Before Sunrise was that it seemed aware of its own characters' pretentiousness, and that movie perfectly captures what it's like to be young and in love with life and with the sound of your own voice. Celine and Jesse fall for one another, for sure, but it's just as much about the experience as it is about the other person, which I find intriguing. It's flawed, but the more beautiful for it, and Hawke and Delpy have so much chemistry. The chemistry remains consistent in Before Sunset, but it's somewhat disappointing that Jesse and Celine are just as self-involved ten years later as they were when they'd first met. I would have liked to see a little more maturation, whereas the only discernible difference in their conversations in the two movies is that they are less optimistic in the second. I wanted them together, but was nagged by the idea that they probably wouldn't be really good for one another. Still, the movie does a nice job with the emotional consequences of missed opportunities. Recommended, although I don't think it was ultimately necessary to revisit these characters.

    The Good German: Gimmicky with a flimsy plot. It's fun to play on Clooney and Blanchett's likenesses to old Hollywood stars, but ultimately, I would rather have been watching a movie from that era than one filmed to imitate it. Watchable, but sort of a waste of time.

    Jesus Camp: Just frightening, and pretty relevant now in terms of the current Supreme Court vacancy. I would take it with a grain of salt as the people the documentary focuses on are in the very, very extreme.

    Hard Candy: Definitely an intriguing movie. It goes for provocation and shock value and mostly achieves it, turning a would-be child molester into his not-so-innocent victim's prey. Patrick Wilson gives an adequate performance as the 30-something photographer and internet stalker, and Ellen Page a great one as a 14-year-old he invites to his house. Page is really the reason to watch the movie, and it was nice to see her out of the Juno mold of roles. The issues the movie raises are interesting, and though it doesn't ultimately do them justice, it does get you thinking.

    Finally got around to seeing The Dark Knight last night...

    It was alright. I've never been a huge fan of Batman though so I wasn't all that pumped up to begin with.

    The performances of The Joker & Two-Face were the best things about it. Heath Ledger's Joker being much more in tune with Alan Moore's Joker in TKJ although still VERY reserved in comparison-- wtf! (It would have been interesting if they included Barbara Gordon getting shot and paralyzed by The Joker somewhere in the film; then instead of another lame Batgirl she could just be Oracle). I also thought Two-Face needed MUCH more screen time.

    But the poor little thing, she's going out of her mind
    There's something you forgot - there's a reason why she's lost
    Cos baby she don't want to be found

    I recently saw a film, In Bruges, it was very good. Colin Farrell surprised me in it. He can act after all!

    He always could act. The question was whether he'd try in certain movies.

    I just watched "Lars and the Real Girl" and found it funny yet poignant in a distinctly non-romcom kind of way. Probably an NF movie - I suspect Sensors might find the premise (don't ask) a little too silly to find touching, and the implementation of the premise not silly enough to be entertaining. Ts would doubtless do well to avoid. I enjoyed it though.

    Oh, and one of the characters - Margo (Kelli Garner) - is going right into the Super Hawt Woman thread.

    yeah, i am an ST and i did not like that movie. i guess i just did not get it, and i could not relate to or empathize with Lars.

    i finally watched Slumdog Millionaire the other night. i liked it alright, i wanted to like it more but something about it just didn't seem to hold my interest.

    i am going to watch Dog Day Afternoon again tonight. i have seen it several times before, but it is a great movie and i have been in the mood for Pacino.
    also, because it was really hot here today.

    I'm a T, but I enjoyed it a lot. I showed it to my NF friend, and she also loved it. It's just a great movie.

    I got back from seeing Transformers 2. And let me just tell you it was the best GM commercial Michael Bay film since Bad Boys II. It was offensive to all the right people: the left-wing pussies and the critics, and that fact alone qualifies this movie as a masterpiece for anyone willing to take their heads out of their asses every so often.

    The characters were extremely believable -- yep, totally uninteresting. The humor was excessively crude and unsophisticated, but for some reason, when the crude jokes are told by CG characters, I'm somehow amused and even awed.
