11:14 looks like a good film. I looked at the IMDB page and it rates fairly well. If it's on isohunt I'll take it.

I recommend The Fall. It's extraordinary. The cinematography is so artistic that you can freeze frames that would make great photos or posters. The attention to detail doesn't hinder the narrative at all. The acting has scenes that make you wonder if there's a script...it seems so spontaneous. The relationship between the two main characters is so natural that I was smiling. I won't add any more...only to say it's the kind of movie you can watch only once (for me anyway). Some films are so good I'm sad when they finish. This is one of them. Magical-realism

11:14 is also a short movie at under 90 minutes. I never trust the imdb movie ratings as many idiots will purposely give a movie the lowest rating so their favorites are in the top.

11:14 has been shown on the IFC and Sundance Channel here in the US. I would think it is available for rental, but one may have to go to a specialty place to rent it. Here is a place that is in Chicago that also has a rental service. They specialize in independent and international cinema:

Facets Multi Media has a great selection and catalog to look over.

The Reader: I thought this was a very good film. A good story from start to finish and it kept be entertained. To enjoy this film, one has to be a fan of film. No huge action scenes, no knee-slapping comedy and no real tear jerker moment to sell the film. Just a flat-out good film. I'll say 7.5/10 which is a little lower than I expected to give, but I take a little off because some films like this I'd see again. This one I wouldn't. Not to deter anyone from watching it the first time because it is worth the watch.

The Haunting of Molly Hartley: your typical, mediocre horror film that gets put out a dime a dozen. However, if approached with the right expectations and an understanding of what you're watching, it is entertaining. I approach these types of movies with the right expectations so rarely am I ever let down, but sometimes you can truly be shocked. Wasn't shocked here but wasn't really disappointed. I'll say a 4/10 though. If you're hard pressed for a scary movie and really can't find nothing else, give it a shot. Nothing special but I'm not really asking for those 2 hours of my life back either.

I've got The Spirit to watch tomorrow.

The Spirit will be one you will be wanting your 2hrs back. I worked with Frank on this one as an extra/driver and went to the theater to see myself and wished I had of just stayed home on ATS. I have to hand it to Frank Miller though for being a true class act, hanging with the crew, extras and not just hiding out in the trailer.

Some of the imagery was interesting as green screen movies can be but not worth the $20 and time.

Just recently watched 'Knowing' and found it very entertaining. I reckon it was pretty bold Hollywood to make a 'mainstream' movie of that nature so i would rate it 8/10 (2 of the 8 for guts!)

The last movie I watched was American History X, and personally I thought it was a very good movie. The movie is about this guy who used to be a Nazi skinhead and how he changes in prison. It was really sad at the end though. So overall I would give it 9/10.

Agree completely with your thoughts on American History X. Such a great movie with a strong message. That's what first opened me up to the talent that is Ed Norton, one of Hollywood's best.

I'm not sure how it happened, but I actually own that movie twice on DVD.

I just finished watching No Country For Old Men which was fantastic. If you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it. It also helps if you've taken the time to read the book by Cormac McCarthy.

Ironically, I lived in the Rio Grande area during the time period the book is written (early '80s), and so I was familiar with many of the locales and landmarks.

Anyway, I'm probably gonna have a nightmare or two of Chigurh stalking me down some dark corridor.

Anticlimactic movies don't always sit well with me. While this was one of the better ones, I find it still does take away from the film. So I did enjoy the film but I always thought it lacked a little something.

Knowing - 8/10 Better than I thought it would be. Nicolas Cage fits this type of role better. I thought the opening scenes with the young girl were very well done, not to mention the whole portrayal of the school. The whole movie seems to be very well directed, everyone is good. The disaster scenes are great, awesome special effects. The biggest problem with the movie is that the main story is just too thin and too predictable.

Dragonball Evolution, 7/10. It is the typical Disney Kung Fu movie, so generic it's like eating at McD's. Still, it was fun and the kids liked it. I like Chow Yun Fat, been a big fan since "The Replacement Killers" and "The Corruptors" which I thought were both great movies, and real acting tour de forces. Also, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is one of my all time favorite movies.

Hanna Montana The Movie - 7/10 Once again, better than I thought. Typical generic Disney film, with the same well developed scenes throughout. It is basically watching a different group of characters go through the same scenes that are in every movie of this type, and seeing how well they pull it off. Hanna does pretty good, she is not a bad actress, and she can do comedy, and her brother is fairly funny as well. She is also has talent as a singer. Another good kids movie.

Thanks for the reviews on the foreign films and the indies, I will have to look for those.

Kyuketsuki Gokemidiro (Goke: Body Snatcher From Hell)

www.imdb.com...

A Japanese movie that has space vampires and a UFO invasion can never be that bad, and this movie was actually quite good.
A group of airline passengers survive a plane crash only to realize one of the members is possessed by an alien. The crash sequence is good, as I prefer it when they use models instead of CGI for these types of movies. The film is also under 90 minutes so it has a quick pace. The ending is a downer, but many such films at the time did. A lot of anti-war sentiment in this one, as Vietnam was going strong when it was released in 1968. 7/10

Some friends gave me that film for last Christmas! EDIT....had to add this edit...meant 'The Fall'....just to be clear.

I'll admit, the cinematography IS spectacular....in some ways, it distracted me from the narrative...but, that's me....always thinking, instead of feeling...

But....yes. Very beautiful film, if a little hard to follow....(for me).

I have no 'current' films that 'I just watched'.....am waiting for 'Star Trek' (but not holding my breath....)

Not sure of the audience, but for sheer enjoyment, sometimes the 'Classics' need to be mentioned: "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" "The Graduate" "The Sting"

"Sunset Boulevard" and....toss up....."All About Eve" ....or....'"The Women".

Too bad that the seasons are a-changin'....stayin' in and cuddling up for a movie aren't as fun in the Spring and Summer. Well, go see the dreck, but remember to rent the ones that matter, for special occasions....

I am currently watching a video online....thru 'Google', it is titled "Core of Corruption".

If this site is about rating movies, and if it is to include Documentaries, then this is by far the most compelling recent thing I've seen....not just pure entertainment, because it IS a Documentary.....

Just saw the recent remake of Friday the 13th.

Being a self-appointed horror film expert, it saddens me to see the genre heading the direction it is.

Today there is a formula with witch mainstream horror works. Show large breasts... then a gory death... more breasts... another death... and so on until the whole cast is either dead or has escaped.

It is like the carrot and donkey trick. They hope that by filling the gaps between kill scenes with eye candy they will make the movie memorable.

Don't get me wrong, I love boobs as much as the next guy, but I'm watching it to see a horror film, not a porno.

Apart from the gratuitous topless bimbos that fill the aforementioned gaps, the movie was pretty good. The kills and development of Jason's back story do give credit to the original.

I'm just hoping the remake of the Stephen King classic IT doesn't fail.

The formula you describe is what Roger Ebert called the "Dead Teenager Genre". John Carpenter started it with the original "Halloween" and it seems every other horror movie or remake/sequel is just the same script done over and over. They are cheap to produce, and make tons of money for the studios that release them.

Speaking of sequels: Nutty Professor II: The Klumps

www.imdb.com...

I did like the performances of Eddie Murphy playing all his relatives, but the movie was a rehash of the first one. There is also much more crude humor in this one, and it is like listening to a group of 12 year old boys. Janet Jackson was lovely to look at, but she did not really have much of a character. Overall a disappointment. 4/10

I watched The Spirit this afternoon. Blah. It has that trademark Sin City Frank Miller style, but completely wastes Samuel L. Jackson.

Last movie I saw at the theater was Watchmen, which I thought was very good. I haven't read the graphic novel, and really had no idea what to expect. The story moved quickly, lots of action, great effects, and a bang-up acting job by Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach. I don't remember seeing him in anything since Breaking Away.

The new Fast and Furious movie 7/10......not bad but not one of them movies that makes you wanna go and buy a realy fast car like the other movies did


Also 1 movie you should all avoid is IMPACT. Its from 2008 and it 1 of those typical disaster movies with a pretty good plot until you reach the end!........Makes you want to smash your TV into little bits
