Das Boot. The entire five hour television version in German with English subtitles - but not in one sitting. You don't just watch that movie - you conquer it it. Seriously - I watched it yesterday and I'm still exhausted. And it's such a great chick flick, too!










(Not really...)

Daniel Craig is BOND! I think I'll watch it again tonight before I have to
send it back.

Forgot to mention that I listened to it in DTS 5.1
Try that option if you have it.

I enjoyed a doubleheader last night of Total Recall and Die Another day.:)

"Death To Smoochy" has been on HBO a lot recently. I highly anticipated this movie for months prior to its release, and while I was disappointed when it first came out, its only gotten better on repeated viewings. Its flawed, but its a great dark comedy.

Ghost Town (?) with Ricky Gervais. Mildly amusing.

I just watched Deception with Hugh Jackman, Ewan Mcgregor and Michelle Williams. It was a damm good movie.

Starting in on the "Godfather" trilogy this week.
Gonna take a while - There's a total of like 8 and a half hours! :shocked: :rolleyes:

^^^
I have the trilogy. everyone was in awe that I had not ever seen it so I got it. I've only watched the first one and it was good...long, but good. I still don't really get it I guess.

I did buy Twilight and even though I saw it in the theater I watched it twice. I'm about halfway through New Moon now.

and the list continues......

Flash Of Genius, pretty good movie, a little boring at times.

Appaloosa, Just horrible. What was Renee Zellweger thinking?

"Calcutta" - Malle

I watched half of "Phantom India" but I got bored, so I switched over to "Calcutta"

Let's see - in the last week:

Slumdog Millionaire - god bless you, Danny Boyle, for being so freakin' versatile.

No Country for Old Men - I was wary, because I am a major Cormac McCarthy disciple, but the Coens did okay.

Burn After Reading - Was not earth-shaking, but was fun - also, John Malkovich with a hatchet? Yes please.

Audition - I always use this film to introduce the uninitiated to the wonders of Miike. Good times, good times. :lol:

Not a movie, but I also watched some Carnivale, because I never get tired of the brilliance that was that show.

If you're talking about HBO's Carnivale, I totally agree.
I wish they would bring Carnivale and Deadwood back
for at least one more season.

Yes, the very one. So brilliant.

It won't come back, I don't think, but I wish it would. It breaks my heart we only got 2 seasons. To me, that show is an example of what TV can be when it tries.

I'm not as crazy over Deadwood, but that was a great show, too - I think it's easier to get over the loss of that one because if you want to know what happened, you can go read it in a book. Not the same for Brother Justin & Ben. Sigh.
