    ^I've heard that's one of his weakest films. However if you're a Lynchian then a weak film of his will still be better than other films around I suppose.

    Well Pain what did you think of The Elephant Man?

    Inland Empire as a weaker film of his? It's hard to say because so many films of his are so surreal and indescribable, thus making it harder to compare. That being said, it really is a work of genius. Emotional attachments aside, I probably favor it to The Elephant Man and Eraserhead.

    Also, I don't think any other film has had such a profound effect on me and encourage meditation as much as IE had after my first viewing.

    Watched a couple this weekend:

    Inside Man: Kinda lacked something, but was interesting enough to keep me watching. No real ending, and Clive Owen was really underutilised, as was Jodie Foster.

    Hard Luck: Oddball film from Mario Van Pebbles with Wesley Snipes. I enjoyed it but it really was an ecclectic film, kinda two films in one. It could have also been greater than it was as it lacked some tension and drama.

    Jarhead: Wasn't a real movie, wasn't very interesting, and wasn't worth it. At any stage I expected a plot or narrative to evolve, but this came up as a really poor remake/restyling of Full Metal Jacket. In fact that is a really bad comparison as it lacked any of the character and story poignancy of FMJ.

    I also found Inside Man lacking the commentative punch that most Spike Lee joints are associated with but it still was an effective film. In reality, I was taken aback a bit by the end myself upon my first viewing but on a rewatch decided that it truly did satisfy because it basically left all parties in the best possible scenario based on the events we'd seen. It's also hard to say that Owen and Foster were under-utilized because they can only perform around the script they're given and too many times have I seen directors re-write parts to further involve characters only to fail. *** (out of ****)

    As for Jarhead, I thought it was a misfire for Mendes but wasn't a terrible film through and through. I do feel it draws unnecessary comparisons to FMJ because of the bootcamp scenes but it's really a different type of film. While Kubrick's take on Vietnam was more of a study on how young naive kids dealt with being sent to war, it didn't really deal too much with how unimportant and unnecessary that war particularly was. Jarhead does a pretty effective job in showing how the soldiers waited for a war that never came and the suffering reflection of their home lives as a result of a job they served almost no purpose for. However, it does almost feel like a clip-show of "my most memorable Gulf War moments" and the tone isn't as consistent as it should be.

    I saw Harry Potter and Transformers last week.

    Harry Potter was ok - suffering probably from being a middle book and as such it seems the next film will also suffer from expectation of the end battle. At least the kids acting is marginally improved.

    Transformers - exactly what I expected from a Bay film - big, loud, epic, action fest with no brains. But I still liked it. It was based on an 80's cartoon so it was never going to be high art anyway. The FX were truly stunning though, particularly the way they integrated with the back/foregrounds and actors, especially in the more "busy" scenes. He may never win an oscar but he can deliver big dumb action films a good'un.

    Under Siege was $4.99 on DVD, and I heard it's Seagal's best film.

    It probably is. But that's not saying much.

    I finally watched HEAT last night. Good movie, bad ending. 3 hours of build up between Neil McCauley(De-Niro) and Lt. Vincent Hanna(Al Pacino) and they face off in one of the worst showdowns in the history of showdowns. Then they hold hands, the end. Just felt like such a let down to me.
