    I want to see Children of men. Glad you thought United 93 was good. I thought it was excellent.

    Pain - Equilibrium is good. The reviews of it were pretty pants and it runs on the ame hook as Brave New World and 1984 but it's still entertaining.

    Watched District 13 last night. Again, the story wasn' mind blowing or wholly riginal but the film was basically a set-up for somefree-running based an set pieces which are good. Worth a watch after a couple of beers.

    I chocked in Escape From New York last week; one of Kurt's finest(if that's an applicable term)

    Aside from Children of Men, it seems like there's little to be concerned about with theaters right now. Any must-see films that are still showing right now Line?


    Stand or fall, but choose.

    Not really. I saw Children of Men again and it certaintly held up...I'm still amazed by Cuaróns camera work. This Friday The Queen (****) and The Last King of Scotland (have yet to see) both open up Nation-wide so I'm looking forward to catching them.

    In DVD news, Marie Antoinette is going to be released Feb. 13th and The Prestige comes out the 20th. I haven't gotten to see either yet so I'm looking forward to their releases.

    I managed to find a screener of Babel and watched that today. I'll post a review in the next few days.

    ^^Line, do you have an opinion on Light a Fire? Tim Robbins, South Africa, etc..
    Really looked interesting to me, but it was there and gone as quick as a turkey at Taft's birthday party.

    My bruddah said the Fountain was beyond strange, but he picked up the soundtrack for it.

    And I'm beyond salivating for Letters From Iwo Jima. I personally found Flags of our Fathers lacking on a number of fronts( can I say that without being unpatriotic?), so that's only intensified my desire to see this (likely better) film. Plus, I love Ken Watanabe, so that's two for two.

    Haven't seen or know much of anything about Light of Fire. I agree with Flags though to an extent...mostly because Paul Haggis is a hack. It's fallen permanently out of my top 10.

    I wanted to like it more.....but it was just wanting in too many areas.

    I'm with you though Line; screw limited releases. Letters and Fire both fell under said category, and who knows if either will make it to Utah.

    I understand Marie Antionette is pretty poor.

    The common consensus is that you know whether or not you're going to like the movie before going into it. Of course it's going to be over-indulgent and visually saturated but people seem to judge this as a flaw in opposition to the final chapter in a triology of sorts by Coppola involving reactionary tales of young women finding themselves in difficult situations.


    Just watched Vertigo...dear God.

    Sounds like your view of 300...

    Actually I don't think it's even that that is the problem - on the contrary I believe it's visuals are it's saving grace as the stroy is apparently somewhat undercooked on screen and the whole thing a little staid. But depends what you like I suppose and what you go into it expecting to see.

    Do you mean Vertigo the Hitchcock film?

    Jimmy Stewart plays John 'Scottie' Ferguson, a detective who resigns from the force early in the film after nearly falling off a roof. He's struck with fear of heights and Vertigo because of the incident. Then, an old friend brings him "out of retirement" by asking him to follow his wife who's exuding strange behaviors and mimiking a local woman who died many years ago. While following her, Scottie falls in love with her and becomes dangerously obsessed with both her and the eerie imagary she represents.

    Don't really want to give away much more than that, but I highly recommend it.

    Completely different. I never once complained about the visuals of 300 but stated they looked less impressive on film than digital and therefore it may not have the knockout impact most are expecting. The difference with Marie was, while the color scheme appears saturated they don't take gross liberties with the art and set direction for the sake of being "over the top" and "extreme". In fact, most of the settings and costumes are either authentic to the time or very good replicas if I'm correct.

    Now that was a movie!

    I also liked his role in Rope. The more 'recent' indie film RSVP (with Jay from Jay and Silent Bob fame) that homaged it was good too.
