    Last movie I watched was Step Brothers (I was really bored). The only part I really laughed was when Will Farrel and John Reilly (that dude creeps me out) sleep walk around the house and throw shit around.

    Hey tim290280, this might be off-topic, but if you really need a good read, I highly recommend In the Company of Heroes by Michael J. Durant. If you remember watching Blackhawk Down, one of the choppers go down and a pilot is captured. Well this is his story. It's really hard to put down.

    Tim is way too forgiving. :gaysign:

    Anyway, I actually got to review some flicks I liked and watched a handful of other decent movies recently as well.

    Through a Glass Darkly (Bergman, 1961) - 7
    Valkyrie (Singer, 2008) - 3 (review here)
    Three Times (Hou, 2005) - 9
    Winter Light (Bergman, 1962) - 8
    El Dorado (Hawks, 1966) - 4
    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence (1962) - 7 (two-for review with El Dorado here)
    Up (Docter, 2009) - 7
    The Children Are Watching Us (De Sica, 1944) - 8
    Revolutionary Road (Mendes, 2008) - 7
    The Hangover (Phillips, 2009) - 5
    Nights of Cabiria - (Fellini, 1957) - 8
    Children of Men (Cuaron, 2005) - 8 (BD review here)
    He’s Just Not That Into You - 3 (review here)

    These were all first-time viewings, minus Children of Men, which I had seen in theaters and on DVD yet still enjoy greatly. I still have to write something up for Revolutionary Road.

    About all of them or just the one? Maybe I should clarify:

    Wind that Shakes the Barley: worth watching but not a great film.
    Riddick: scifi action, it is what it is.
    Soldiers: is only ok, but I think does touch on some issues of comradery and fellowship that a lot of war movies gloss over or miss. It does let itself down a bit though with that second last scene and by not making a bigger statement about the return home.

    Terminator Salvation - 6.5/10
    Not a bad movie. It wont live up to the awesomeness of the first two, but it is a decent sequel/prequel.

    Role Models - 7.5/10
    Very funny! Paul Rudd and McLovin = :iorofl:

    ^^ That's an easy distinguishment.

    Alien = John Hurt

    Aliens = Commandos

    Masculin, féminin is likely my new favorite Godard film, which is impressive considering I've seen about fifteen others by good ol' Jean-Luc. It may be worthy of top 10 consideration.

    Please admit you just watched it because of the 4-way sex scene.

    Finally watched Slumdog Millionaire.

    I borrowed this off my brother a couple of months ago and finally watched it this evening. Probably one of the best films I've seen in the past couple of years. Thoroughly enjoyed the film, even though it dealt with a pretty despondant situation (although ultimately uplifting).

    To all the Slumdog haters: Line was right, he usually is.

    I'd say a 7/10.

    Not good enough to rate higher as it was too schmaltzy.

    I didn't mind that too too much, as it was largely a fairy tale, though a fairy tale set in a contemporary society. My problem was that the movie did a fair job in presenting and reflecting this society and its problems but ultimately sided heavily with fate and chance versus academia and cognition. That, and the narrative is essentially a giant gimmick, though one that's not unsuccessful.

    That and too many dutch angles, though the cinematography was apt as a whole, especially in evoking light and space where there's none to be found.

    The entire "it is written" idea didn't sit well with me. These two brothers had dragged themselves up by being enterprising. It was clear they were also smart and able to pick things up as they went along (the scenes in the call centre hinted at this). It hinted that they were educating themselves and this was the reason for Jamil's success (but this education was patchy). But then to essentially have a few lines that said he got some lucky questions and that it was all fate flew in the face of this.

    I liked the "Millionaire" narrative with the explanation of each question. It sat as an interesting juxtaposition between the abject poverty of the contestant and the blatant commercialism and consumerist westernisation that was driving the "better half".
