more DVD's......

Pride And Glory, Good movie. Some of it's hard to watch.
Edward Norton and Colin Farrell did a good job on this movie.

The House Bunny, What....is that laughter I hear??? Okay,
I admit it, I like Anna Faris. But even she couldn't make this movie
worth watching (shocking I know).

The Mummy, Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor, why did I even....?

Traitor, Pretty good, borrowed too much from Bourne and Bond.

Sophie's Choice, Great movie, Meryl Streep's best work.

Perkins 14 - garbage
From Within - Has witches in it, so I felt obliged.
Marley & Me - Cute dogs. I was forced.
The Children - Children who kill, which proves what I've known all along.
Fritt Vilt 2 - Decent follow-up.

Blood Diamond - brilliant film, quite brutal but opens your eyes to what actually goes on in Africa, and makes you think twice about wanting a diamond!! Good watch.

I like them both a lot but I don't see "what the big deal is" either -
I wouldn't put them on my list of "best movies ever made" the
way many fans do. I liked the acting, though.

Recent movies I watched (mostly on blu-ray):

Let The Right One In
Best film of 2008
Elegy
Turned out better than I thought it would be and Ben Kingsley and Penelope Cruz are very believable.
Slumdog Millionaire
Pretty good, not sure it is worth Best Picture. Kudos for truly depicting India as the filthy cess pool it is. The big cities are really dirty.
Bolt
Cute, but typical Disney fare.
Quarantine
This is just plain fun and kind of freaky.
Night Watch
Day Watch

Both these films are high-speed, non-stop Russian weirdness. Love them both. Looks fab on blu too.
Tell No One
Awesome thriller from France.

Hi guys! Been a while, huh?

Funny, I was on vacation last week, and watched a boat load of movies. Sara and I have been wanting to watch The Boy in the Striped Pajamas for the longest time now. Wasn't too bad. The ending was surprising and bittersweet. We weren't disappointed. Samantha and I both love Coming to America... oldie but a goodie. I made her watch Mississippi Burning, which has always been a favorite of mine. Anyhow, back to the new ones... Mall Cop was a let down. Didn't enjoy that one too much at all. Bride Wars was another let down in my opinion. Both just weren't as funny as I expected.

I agree, Let the Right One In was my favorite film of 2008. The film made dozens of top ten/critic's lists. Unfortunately, the just-released U.S. DVD features a new Americanized translation, different from what played in theaters. The company that released the DVD has responded to heavy protest and is releasing the original English subtitles. The "new" version added sex jokes, etc. Still, a full U.S. remake is coming from the director of Cloverfield. Let the Right One In is one of the greatest vampire films. It starts out somewhat dry, but let it work it's dark magic.

Quarantine is a near shot-for-shot remake (right down to set design) of the 2008 Spanish horror film [REC], which is short for "record." [REC] 2 is coming. Sony is finally releasing [REC] on DVD later this year. It's a tighter film than the U.S. remake, which is 15 minutes longer than the Spanish version, which is a gripping 75 minutes.

Just watched Undercover Brother tonight. Not the greatest acting, but it gave me a good laugh. Of course the best line is "You mess with the fro', you got to go."

Having a kid is such a great excuse to watch films like that, I love babysitting for that exact reason.

The last film I watched was The Waitress, I bought it because it was cheap and I remembered reading a review where it was compared to Amelie. It's not quite as good or thought-provoking but still a cute movie.
