I want to see that movie with the boy and the tiger in a boat. Don't know what it's called.

He's underrated, IMO--so versatile. I'm looking forward to seeing him in The Hurt Locker.

I freaking LOVED that movie. His sarcasm and one-liners had me cracking up the whole movie.

Anna Karenina:

Quite different from what I expected. I thought it will be a big-production movie (like e.g. Dr. Zhivago), and instead, it was a movie that was constantly played on various "theater stages." The cast moves to a different room - so a different stage opens. Somebody needs to leave - so they leave on a ladder to a backstage (and sometimes the story - especially when depicting something dark - continues in the backstage). They watch fireworks - so the roof of the theater opens. Sometimes as the scene goes on, the janitor is sweeping in front of the stage. Curtains, ropes, stage lights everywhere.

It was not a crazy-dream-sequence movie (like e.g. "Black Swan"), the story was quite linear, and reasonably powerful to eventually forget the staging oddity, but it took me at least 30-45 minutes to get adjusted. Definitely not my cup of tea.

On a positive note - the movie was still able to depict all the various shades of "love" quite powerfully. Jude Law as Karenin was probably the strongest actor. Keira Knightley in the lead role was a miscast, IMO.

Knowing the story before seeing the movie definitely helps.

Bajo la Sal. Not bad. Atmosphere was better than story development.

Wrecked. Not bad. Adrien Brody crawling around for an hour and a half.

We caught Wrecked on accident about 6 weeks ago. Agreed that it's not bad. Ending was decent. Brody did a good job in what is essentially Cast Away in the pacific northwest with a twist.

I like stupid action movies that atleast have respectable writing... Like Bad Boys for instance was great (both)

I enjoyed lockout

Guy Pearce is good

The hurt locker is such a **** movie .... If you want to watch good film based in the 2003-2012 Iraq

In all fairness to it, I would have enjoyed it more if the Netflix stream wasn't so choppy. Still, I do have more respect for it the day after. Ending was really strong.

Watched flight with denzel, not what I thought. The crash scene was one of the most intense scenes I've seen & worthy of admission alone. The movie is dark, depressing, and sad, but it's also well done. I don't even know if I can say it was entertaining

ZOMG. I hate Dogville. I was told and told by friends and everyone I needed to watch it. I thought it was terrible. I thought the story was pretty good, but I hated the presentation. It completely detracted from everything. I usually like creative and different when it comes to films, but this one wasn't for me.

All the crappy Star Wars movies are over on Spike. Onto the "real" ones from my childhood. With beer.

Life of Pi was solid. Great visuals, but unlike another fairly recent movie with great visuals (Avatar, for instance), this one actually had some legitimate substance to it. Didn't even know it was released in 3D -- it seemed like a movie where that'd be a worthwhile format to check it out in, though it was just fine and engaging in 2D as well.

I finally got around to seeing the Avengers. I'll preface it with the fact that I have not seen any of the preceding movies, so I was going into it blind. However, I found it quite enjoyable. I'm sure there were some things that I didn't "get" the same as if I had seen the other movies, but that didn't really detract from my enjoyment. What a fun movie.

watched Ruby Sparks, followup from the people who did Little miss sunshine (i think). It was good, still thinking about what the message of the movie was, it feels like they were trying to tell me something, but I don't know what yet...

A while back people were asking how The Hobbit at 48fps will look. This is sort of what it will look like:

Lord of War. Enjoyed it. They wouldn't make that movie the same way during Democratic presidencies, but still well done.
