    Okay, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning is the most fucked up movie ever made, without question. There's no way there's a film with more gore than this one.

    It's unbelieveable that it only got an "R" rating.

    Overall: C+

    My 2003 remake rating: B+

    what about the story, im considering watching it, but if the movie only has gore then forget it

    gore doesnt make a movie scary, twisting plots and confusion's leave the last impression

    The story leading up to why they end up at the house is fine. Not really too many twists going on in it.

    A lot of people have complained that it's a little bit too similar to the last one. This movie takes place around the Hewitt's house more than the remake. Much less chasing in this one.

    I feel like a bad person for laughing so much when I saw the Ringer, although the overall tone and message was a lot better than I thought it would be.

    Caught Fearles today, and I felt it was amazing. Made me want to teach right after I left the theater.

    One down, and three to go on my semi-strange movie list-TCM:TB(for kicks), The Departed, and JA 2.

    Saw TCM:TB today, and it was...meh. Sorry Flex. There's been more done with the series, but there's been worse as well. Not a bad movie, but it just felt uninspired. Everyone was beyond stupid, and 'military bro' ended up being the most worthless out of all of them. It was hard for me to care about any of the victims when it seemed they were basically putting their heads on their respective chopping blocks all on their own.

    That, and it didn't help that they made Leatherface look like Abyss from TNA for about half of the movie. Gore and shock alone does not a movie make, even with a huge budget and a couple known names.

    I plan on seeing The Departed tomorrow afternoon or night. Then, next week on 10/20 the following movies are coming out so I'll probably be living at the theater:

    -Flags of our Fathers
    -Marie Antoinette
    -The Prestige

    ...it's about goddamn time this year starts kicking it up a notch.

    I agree with everything you said. Funny how there was more character development towards the boys then on either girl especially Jordana.

    I don't think it's a great film at all, but it's watchable. I would say I was a little disappointed. Would you rate it lower than my C+?

    ^^I'd likely saddle it with around the same grade, with a straight C being the most likely. Respect for the original stays my hand, and the fact that it does have a shred of continuity. If it was a stand alone movie, it'd probably be in the D range for me.

    Anyone like Inside Man here?

    Personally, I loved it for so many reasons but I'm just curious what you guys think.

    No shit. Working at a video store is depressing to have free rentals but no movies worth renting.

    It definitely reeked of awesomeness, but I felt Clive Owen made the movie more than Denzel did. The twists were very well done, and the overall story was quite excellent. The ending was a little lame(Denzel's last scene), but Clive made up for it with his epilogue. Best line for me, as they're having everyone change into their painter outfits:
    Older Woman-"I'm not taking off my clothes!"
    Clive-"Lady, trust me on this. This is the only situation in which I would ever ask you to do this, but take off your friggin' clothes."

    Saw Little Miss Sunshine today and I'm seeing The Departed tonight in a few hours. I'll put up reviews tomorrow.

    I thought Clive did a great job in Derailed. I was blown away with his performance in Inside Man. He never really broke his character which can be tough to do with a character like that. I'm a somewhat big fan of Clive now. Aside from Clive, I thought Denzel did a good job with his character but that's kind of a givin' with him. Jodie Foster played her character well and - I never thought she could pull off a character like this -she made you hate her character with a near passion. I love movies that have endings like what Inside Man did. Probably why I like Lucky # Sleven, too.

    Slevin wasn't bad at all, and the story had nice twists and quirks without being in love with itself.

    Looking forward to seeing Inside Man and Lucky Number Slevin.

    Line - look forward to seeing what you think of The Departed, and Marie Antionette - I've heard it's meant to be shit.

    Little Miss Sunshine ***1/2

    Titles can be deceptive. This movie, in a similar manner to those of Alexander Payne's, is more of a character study of a family struggling to walk the fine line between winners and losers. For the most part the comedy is dark and somewhat off-beat but there's something warming between the family's chemistry as the film progresses; particularly evident between Steve Carell and Paul Dano. We see each family member's character morph throughout the entire movie, which centers around a road trip from New Mexico to California so young Olive can compete in the Little Miss Sunshine pagent. Those with confidence and aim start to lose their grasp and others who appear originally misguided begin to become more centered and grounded; somewhere in the middle is where they meet and it's a place that's both comfortable for them and the viewer. In reality, this place of comfort is where the Olive has been all along.

    From a critical aspect, parts of the life lessons learned come off as cliche at first but the movie's overall innocence and sincerity makes it painful to pick apart. It knows it's place and refuses to get too preachy overall, even when you think some scenes go on a little too long or seem awkawrd and uncomfortable; that's family I guess.

    Special mention should be made to Alan Arkin as the heroin-snorting, foul-mouthed grandfather whose unconventional advice is part of what allows the family to discover each other; even after his demise. The use of music throughout the film was also very well done and credit should be given to not only the music coordinator but the editor as well for these scenes are among the best in the movie.
