This film was brilliant! And worth it to see in 3D. The story was strong too.

Also, I watched Sherlock Holmes. You can not compare the two, but this was great as well. Loved the opening credits with the film production logos made of cobblestone collected in puddles. And how Holmes analyses something before he does it. :)

I really want to see this one ! It seems so great !
I just saw The Shining. This is not really a horror movie, but I found it very ... disturbing ! Jack Nicholson is perfect in the role of the father going crazy, and the little boy is a really good actor. He just scared me saying "REDRUM !" all the time !

I watched two films this evening...

Slumdog Millionaire - which was ok, kinda disappointed with the ending tho'. The film was pretty rough and hard going in plces (a'la Citade de Deus) then they go and tack on a Hollywood ending which for me was a bit of a cop out.

El Laberinto Del Fauno (Pan's Labyrinth) - bought it on dvd months ago and have only gotten around to watching it now, The background setting for what is essentially a fairytale is also extremely rough (Spanish Civil War) and it makes no excuses, war crimes are shown in great detail. There's also a few deaths of leading characters (trying not to give too much away). that said it's extremely well shot and I'm probably missing a fair bit in the translation.


Two not bad movies I much preferred the latter tho'. Both were not what I was expecting and as such I would recommend them to most folks just be very aware they are not exactly "feel good" movies or "brain candy" for killing a few hours.

Anyway it's now 4:10am and I'm thinking a bit of anime with New Dominion Tank Police (never seen it) or I could just bung on one of the "Bourne" trilogy that way if I fall asleep it doesn't matter.

Ok lately I have watched:

Me, You and Everyone we Know - awful, just awful!

Spirited Away - so COOOOOOLLLLL!!! Loved it. Don't usually do Anime but it great.

Australia - BRILLIANT, not what I was expecting from Baz Lurhmann(sp?) but I thought it was fantastic. would recommend, esp if you like super long movies.

My Sister's Keeper - made me cry BUCKETS! But good.

I have that boxset, think it was 20 from HMV, I sat and watched them all in a row, Alien and Aliens are very good, Alien 3 is ok but I really don't know why they bothered with Alien Resurrection. That said it's an excellent box set full of brilliant extras including a good bit of imput and artwork from HR Giger. I also think the green plastic used in the interior disc holders is a nice touch.

I saw Sherlock Holmes the other day. If you've read the books and expect something like it, forget about it. You have to watch it as if it was just another movie to entertain yourself for a while, and don't you dare relating it to Conan Doyle. If you're able to do that, then you can enjoy the movie, which is a regular Hollywood movie with action and a few funny moments.
Having said that, it pisses me off how every topic and every story has to be forced into a standard Hollywood production in order to be appealing for an already standarized audience, completely distorting and ruining everything. As a Sherlock Holmes fan myself, the movie is utter crap.

I completely agree with you on what you say about these films. I was very disappointed with Slumdog Millionaire's Hollywood twist.

El Laberinto del Fauno is a great movie. I liked this one much more than Slumdong Millionaire.

In my opinion, El Laberinto Del Fauno is a shit film. I didn't like it (not even a bit). It's like they want to tell too many things and in the end what they say is nothing. I give it 0 out of 10.

Really??? I thought it was quite good! What things you say they want to tell? They're not trying to depict an exact story about the civil war, I think it's just a story set in that context. I can't remember how it ends though, lol.

Just watched 'Whip It'- wasn't expecting much to be honest. Well, I absolutely adore Drew Barrymore but directing? Chicks rollerblading? Meh. Let's say I wasn't convinced.

But. It's actually AWESOME! It has Ellen Page and Kristen Wiig and Zoe Bell and Juliette Lewis and cute indie boys AND a totally rad soundtrack. Dude, what's not to love? Plus the chicks are really cool and badass. I haven't enjoyed any movie so much in aaaaaages.

On Saturday I watched "Rear Window" (which I had seen before) and the updated version, "Disturbia" back to back. Rear Window I could watch over and over again. Disturbia, no. It was suspenseful, but just not as good, and aimed too much as teenagers.

Rear Window is fab, but do you really think an old guy like James Stewart would be trying to break up with Grace Kelly? Or that she would be after him in the first place?

Those Edith Head costumes were gorgeous!
