ATOTS is an amazing film.... very freaky and an awesome twist.
Freaked me out when i saw it a few years ago.

Wouldn't even bother with the remake...


It's like Quarantine... it's an almost shot for shot remake of the Spanish movie Rec.

Why bother?


Rec is a really original and scary take on a pretty tired genre.... i wouldn't even want to see Quarantine.

I dunno....

We recently saw Star Trek, by far probably one of the top 3 movies I have ever seen.

I only wished that they would of played the orignal Theme at the end, instead of this new stuff...ehh, it was great nonetheless.

I plan on seeing it a couple more times.

Going next weekend to see this.
have heard nothing but good things about it.

I'm not a big fan of star trek (i know...burn me at the stake) but this one looks really good.

Just saw Star Trek, and even with plot holes you could drive a fleet of Mac trucks through, it was still a thoroughly enjoyable movie....I'd give it 4 stars out of 5...

I actually think we're going again tonite. I want to see it hopefully tonite & tommarow since I won't be busy.

I wonder if a new Startrek tv series is coming out soon??
I hope so, with brand new characters and plots,...


I only have one suggestion...KEEP THE BLOODY ORIGINAL THEME...thats all.


And the time speeds by it seems, it only seemed like a 1 hour movie, not a 2+ hour movie.
I also wished it were longer.
I love long movies.(LOTR, SW, JP, etc...)

I've read her voice is dubbed in the movie anyway?
For one less feminine....


Yep, that's the case. Eli's voice in the dubbed version had a gravelly quality, but it was still quite feminine. It did lean toward the masculine when Eli was aggravated - such as when Hakkan 'messed up' his first kill in Stockholm and left the blood behind.

A great movie, memorable. And yes, haunting.

I enjoyed that in the book, Eli was referred to as 'her' and 'she' until after Oskar finally learned the truth, after which Eli was referred to as 'he'.

A beautiful story, the ending is just so touching.

Rec is the much better film IMO, and not just because the lead actress is so much hotter than the one in the American version :p

She is quite nice...



I just don't get it with all the remakes man...why do they need to keep remaking excellent foreign movies....?

Are people that lazy they don't want to read subtitles..?

I thought the ending was great, but quite sad.

The swimming pool bit is his dying fantasy....


beautiful but sad.

Ahh, gee, that's not what I took away from it at all
.

Rereading the last few chapters of the book, it paints a much more detailed picture of the whole pool scenario, which differs somewhat from the one portrayed in the movie.

The faux newspaper blurbs in the book related to the incident report witnesses seeing Eli, who one of them described as an 'angel' kill Oskar's tormentors then flee the scene with Oskar.

Both the book and movie were great, but there's only so much detail and back story you can fit into a film that runs 2hrs max. I'll take the book over the movie, which is something I almost always to anyway :p

Oh yeah....the book is a lot more "fitting"

I was talking about the movie though.

I saw an interview with the director and he said that Oskar died in the pool and the bit where Eli comes and kicks ass...and then the train bit, are his dying fantasy....which yeah....broke my heart when i heard it.

It's still a beautiful ending....but a different kind of beautiful ending.


I also think, like most good, deep and philosophical movies, it's open to interpretation....i personally didn't get the "dying fantasy" feeling from the end of the movie....

But then that's what i get for digging around trying to find out more....

Angels & Demons.

Not actually sure why i went to see it....i knew it would not be all that.

However, it's not as bad as it's being made out.

The opening ten minutes are excellent....they (illuminati) infiltrate the LHC in switzerland and steal a container of anti-matter.
But just the opening sequence of particle collision and a "trip" around the inside of the collider is fascinating.

There are other moments in the film that are good too and a couple of rather dark and gruesome moments....but all in all.... a rather mediocre effort.

The sets and backdrops are excellent and it is a visually stunning movie.


But however, the plot....acting and predictability let this film down a lot.


5.5 out of 10.

I thought the DaVinci code was terrible. How does Angles and Demons compare to it? I can't believe Ron Howard and Tom Hanks are capable of teaming up to make such terrible movies.

Milk.

9/10

I thought it was a really good movie and it deserved all of the critical acclaim that it received. I wasn't really prepared for the love scenes though.... so that took me by surprise.

Sean Penn really did a fantastic job.

You're not wrong there -she is quite foxy.
Rec is one of the best horror films of recent times -the ending is an absolute classic.

The whole thing is just excellent.
Really quite scary and looks and feels very real/authentic.

And yeah....the end is freaky as hell.


Original and brilliant.

Howl's Moving Castle is good, but Spirited Away is excellent. Artwork, backgrounds, plot and soundtrack are all quality.

I've borrowed Rec and Let the Right One In from a one-legged man with a parrot on his shoulder. Looking forward to watching them in the week. After them for a while and the positive comments gave me the push...
