Let the Right One In: 9.5/10
They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?: 7/10
Gran Torino 8.5/10
Modern Times 11/10
Body and Soul (Paul Robeson): 7.5/10 (mostly just because it was so interesting to see a film centered on the African-American community from 1925, and Robeson playing dual roles in the same film.)
Purple Rose of Cairo 8/10
“Dead Man’s Shoes” – 100
“Cube” – 100
“Five Across the Eyes” – 99
“Natural Born Killers” – 100
“Ken Park” – 78
Bonnie & Clyde – 10/10
Robin Hood (1922 – Allan Dwan) – 9/10
WALL*E – Pure drivel.
I’m sorry, I just didn’t get it. Is this what we’re calling “original” these days? This nightmare would end up costing Disney more money in royalty settlements than PAUL’S BOUTIQUE, if they didn’t already own all the bloody properties they’re hijacking. And what was the message there? Just screw up the earth, let technology clean it up, take a government-funded space cruise and come back just when signs of healing begin to show? What did I miss? And why isn’t Fred Willard animated? Am I to assume that the humans devolved into bloated, rubbery cartoons? Was that supposed to be the clever part of the whole sledgehammer social commentary or was PIXAR cutting corners again (kind of like they did for the entire running time of MONSTERS, INC. and CARS)? And I know this one’s been pointed out before, but a lesson about consumerism from Disney? Are you kidding me?
… in a beautiful package, mind you, but nevertheless…
Pure, unadulterated drivel.
Bad Lieutenant 8/10
Revolutionary Road- 9/10
A Japanese XXX called Exorsister 1 – 10/10 for sure!
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Definitely one of my all time favorites. 10/10.
“2001: A Space Odyssey” – 100
“The Wrestler” – 4.5/5
Russian Ark 10/10
It was amazing. And the making of video was amazing too. In the last scene Sokoruv said should we film any longer? And then he said cut. It was really something special.
Chunking Express 9/10
La Promesse – 8.5/10
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button 9/10
During the first half, I thought I was going to be watching a sentimental-in-sepia FORREST GUMP meets THE NOTEBOOK, but the second half knocked the film into greatness territory for me. B.Button is anything but sentimental, and beautifully done.
Doubt: 8.5/10 .. and I walked through miles of snow to see it! Great performances all around.
why you gotta try and steal my thunder??
i kid, but i did this thread already…
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button 8.75/10
Although it was pretty much Forest Gump all over again, the dissection of age was captivating. Basically the moral of the movie is no matter what, your gonna be wearing diapers at the beginning and end of your life.
Beauty and the Beast (Jean Cocteau) 7.5/10
-great imagery, great story
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button 7/10
-very interesting movie, but slow in the middle, and Pitt left something to be desired
Slumdog Millionaire: 5.5/10
Angel Dust : 8.75
