You don't like Sean Penn? Wow...that is hard to understand. He's an amazing talent. Mystic River and Dead Man Walking are great ones, as was 21 Grams....

I thought his oscar acceptance speech was great telling people ''i know i make it hard for you to like me''.... he realizes his shortcomings. and makes no apologies.

But I can understand someone not liking someone who's popular. I never have figured out the whole Tom Cruise thing....so overrated in my opinion. I'll never forget the moment he lost the oscar to Daniel Day Lewis...the look on his face...he really thought he had a lock on that one. But honestly he's not fit to kiss the shoes of Daniel Day.

It was either gonna be Sean Penn or Mickey Rourke for the oscar (I would have preferred Frank Langella) but Rourke was a sentimental favourite. Plus it would have been interesting seeing what kind of acceptance speech Rourke would have given. I don't think he'll have another chance.

The last film I saw was The Reader but wait until video on that one. I plan on seeing Milk next, I just know I will love it! Then I'll check out The Wrestler and Slumdog. As for video I suggest the older Glengarry Glen Ross, it's a classic to me

I hate There Will Be Blood and the last scene was disturbing. I wish I had never ordered it.

"Life Aquatic" is quirky, slow, surreal and brilliant. I know a lot of people hated it and I can understand that. I didn't like it the first time I saw it.

Same for "No Country For Old Men". But I find I'm hooked on it - I've seen it maybe 10 times which is something I rarely do. Each time I pick up something new. I even put captioning on because a lot of the local dialect was lost on me. Amazing dialogue! Again - many didn't care for it and I can understand it.

The most recent movie I have seen is "I've loved you so long".

It is the story of two sisters who haven't seen each other for fifteen years. I won't say more less I spoil it for you.

Other good movies that I have seen in the past three months include:
Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Marley and Me
Changeling
Revolutionary Road
Wrestler
Role Models

I am longing forward to seeing "Two lovers" with Joaquin Phoenix (Walk the Line) and Gwyneth Paltrow.

I saw Gran Torino and I recommend it.

Think of "Dirty Harry" as a retired crusty old man.

Just got back from Watchmen...

I am trying to decide what I thought of it. Some parts of it was amazing, special effects were mindblowing; very artistically done; and unbelievably bloody. They started it half an hour late, so it was well after 3 by the time it was over, and it was not a short movie. Tons of twists.

Kind of confusing, extremely uh, well, there wasn't a whole lot left to the imagination (ok, there was NOTHING left to the imagination) in a couple of the characters... (especially when the one became 50 feet tall... holy cow; somehow imagine trying to get the paint off everything might not have been lots of fun for the actor)...

I would have liked it more if it didn't start at after 12:30 at night. But definitely creative, artistic, and interesting story. But bloody, graphic, extreme and I shut my eyes through I think 2/3rd of it.

Guess B+ for me. Maybe i'll feel otherwise when I'm more wide awake.

(they were advertising Tarantino's next movie with Pitt... that one looks like it won't be real fluffy either).

Snatch is one hell of a movie. Guy Ritchie is a brilliant director so i recommend Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels also. Fight Club is up there with the best too. And to throw in an oldie...you cant go wrong with The Great Escape

I finally saw Milk the other day and loved it. I see why Penn won best actor, he acted just like Harvey Milk. Reminded me of Jamie Fox playing Ray. Besides that I saw Madea Goes To Jail which is a comedy, a good one and most comedies I don't care for. The Changeling was very good also, so it looks like I'm on a winning streak.

"Red" - Excellent film based on Jack Ketchum's novel. Brian Cox was outstanding as a man who tries to find justice when teens shoot and kill his dog. Co-directed by Lucky McKee(writer/director of May)

"My Name is Bruce"- Very fun with Bruce Campbell playing a caricature of himself. You'll never look at bean-curd the same way again.

" Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead" - Ultra silly, over the top horror comedy splatter musical that totally pokes fun at everything 'fast food'. Lloyd Kaufman does it again.

Two comedies I really enjoyed were "Run, Fat Boy, Run" with Simon Pegg(Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), and "Death At A Funeral"

Some older films-

"American Movie"- Great documentary about Mark Borchardt trying to make his own movie with the help of friends, and family.

"Murder By Death"- Fantastic mystery-comedy poking fun at some of movie and tv's famous detectives.

"American Pop"- Ralph Bakshi's animated history of four generations of a family and a fictitious look at their involvement in the evolution of popular music. From vaudeville to punk.

"Kenny and Co."- Before Don Coscarelli made Phantasm, he made this coming of age tale of two boys dealing with bullies, death, and first love during the week leading up to Halloween.

"Bubba Ho-tep"- Also from Coscarelli. Bruce Campbell plays an elderly Elvis alive and forgotten in a Southern Texas retirement home, who befriends a man(Ossie Davis) who thinks he is JFK, together they try to stop a mummy who is sucking the souls of the residents.

"The World, the Flesh and the Devil"- Excellent late 50's end of the world film about 3 lone survivors of the nuclear war, and in some ways ahead of its time as it deals with Harry Belafonte, Inger Stevens, and Mel Ferrer caught in a love triangle with strong racial tension.

"Harold and Maude"- Young Harold obsessed with death, meets 79 year old Maude who lives life to the fullest.

"Meet the Hollowheads"- Surreal late 80's comedy about a family living in another world/dimension having the dad's boss over for dinner.

Benjamin Button was a good movie, but really really really long... (and slightly disturbing at one point; having an 80 year old in love with a 9 year old was slightly weird...)

but otherwise it was really well done.

Finally going to see Slumdog tomorrow with my daughter.

"TAKING CHANCE"......True story about this Marine officer that volunteers to escort a young PFC's body home to his family, simply tells an amazing story that anyone regardless of there political belifes will appreciate.......HBO simply rock's with the "QUALITY" programming they put out.

I haven't seen Watchmen.. and I do know what's being said.. if you do NOT like something.. you must just.. NOT get it.. like you must be stupid or something. I came to that case yesterday having bought, and actually NOT judging "Twilight".. actually knew VERY VERY little about the moive. so I had no real.. preconceptions either way.. one person told me.. don't expect a vampire movie. expect a chick flick.. so I even had that much in line when I sat down.. and it just struck me as a story about a creepy pale faced stalker.. some girl who really liked her ipod.. and all of her pale uninteresting.. Iguess.. friends? Who.. really had NOTHING to do in buttcrack.. Washington .. so.. this new..Ipod tuned girl must be the most fascinating thing EVER!!

bleh.. sadly.. it made Lost Boys 2, which I watched later seem a MASTERPIECE. then again.. I spacked out until I heard Feldman talking.. and the flick ended RIGHT when it was getting good with Feldman and Haim about to have the smack down.

and no.. I am not DUMB.. I count in my collection.. well a vast array from schlock horror.. to.. schlock comedy. hahaha.. but I just.. love almost ANYTHING.. I love the Cohen Bros.. Chick Russell, Frank Darabont.. Copolla.. Speilberg. Lucas.. Stallone.. Van Damme.. Damon.. Affleck.. Gibson.. ok.. I will admit.. MOST if not all of my collection doesn't predate.. probably 1960, with Psycho.. although.. IF it were available I'd have The African Queen.. as well as Song of the South (oh.. I do have some older Disney flicks, Snow White and Bambi. and Pinocchio).

but. yeah.. I feel like.. oh there must be something wrong with you.. for NOT loving Twilight.. or. Watchmen.. or Titanic.. or.. the millions of other films that you're told you SHOULD love.. then again.. I always felt Titanic was a RIP off and LA Confidential or Good Will Hunting should have won best picture that year.. then again.. I still think Chasing Amy should have been nominated in best screenplay for '97..

as for recent movies..

Gran Torino was excellent..
Sex Drive (give it a shot.. its a cute homage to 80s flicks.. mostly The Sure Thing).
Zack and Miri Make a Porno (probably my favorite comedy of the YEAR).
Walk Hard (its just hilarious.. and.. the FAKE songs are catchy as hell).
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Role Models

I guess I've been on a real comedy kick lately..

oh.. and just for flat out WEIRD and different.. check out
Repo: The Genetic Opera.

Slumdog Millionaire was good. The music and the cinematography gave what was an otherwise often told story something unique.

A friend and I went to Taken recently. Very fast-paced. Reminded me of the Borne movies in that the lead just takes people out in the most efficient way possible without a lot of excess drama. It is violent and it will make parents never want to let their teenage daughters out of their sight.

Has anyone caught Duplicity yet? Looks smart and sexy. Just my style.

A Complete History of My Sexual Failures....So funny,one of those movies that makes you laugh but behind that facade is a world of brooding questions about yourself and your prior relationships.

'Stuck'- Inspired by an incident that was in the news a few years ago. A woman(Mena Suvari) hits a man(Stephen Rea)who gets stuck in her windshield. So instead of getting help, she parks the car in her garage to leave him to die. Stephen Rea was excellent. Directed by Stuart Gordon(Re-Animator, From Beyond)

I have also seen this movie. I am involved with an oganization called Soldiers Angels (www.soldiersangels.org) Sorry for postin the link but this org does a lot for our SOLDIERS. I pretty much sat with tears fallin through this whole movie. I never realized, or I should say I never knew what the process was that our military took in the care of a fallen soldier. This story was done with respect, honor, and showed this is the way it is with no artificial drama....

"Taking Chance" was a great short movie. Seeing the respect shown to the Marine on his final journey not only from the military people but from everyday citizens encountered along the way was very touching.
