have not seen the movie, but if the guy you refer to was iranian or something, it could just be broken english. which would make more sense than a middle eastern rando, speaking perfect english. if the guy was american, then i have no idea lol.

Also, Jack Black gives a bravura performance. This movie really should have gotten more attention.

Definitely. We watched it on a recommendation from a friend, had no idea what we were getting into, but very much enjoyed it. Such a bizarre story.

I read up in the case last night after watching it, and Linklater left out a few salient details that might have changed the way people viewed the story. Like, for example, that before the murder Bernie had given several large gifts to some "male friends" of his, using the old lady's money of course. Her discovering this might well have had something to do with the murder.

Would "Where was" make more sense for you? The question is meant to ask where not when.

Saw the critically acclaimed French flick "Amour" last night. My wife liked it. I hated it. I suppose you could see it as a touching, tragic love story of a very old man caring for his declining wife. However, two-plus hours of watching an old broad pissing herself, drooling and gabbling was a bit too much for me. Like many European movies, it would have been much better had about 20 minutes been trimmed from it.

Anent the comments on "Bernie" above, that was indeed a great movie!

When I saw this the majority of the audience were seniors so I'd imagine it must've been a pretty intense confrontation for them to watch this film. Personally I never took it as a tragic love story because Haneke never has this sense of attachment with his characters

Django Unchained
7.5/10

Easily as good as Inglourious Basterds, way better than the interminable Kill Bill(s), but still not at the exalted level of Pulp or Reservoir.

Good story, very entertaining, great acting, especially by Christoph Waltz. Typical of Tarentino, it has very graphic violence and dark humour. It also has the best depiction of the horrors of slavery I've seen.

Didn't even need an edit at 2:47 minutes!

Just saw it as well, though IMO it was not anywhere near as good as Basterds. Definitely felt like it needed some editing--the movie didn't feel like it knew where it was going, especially in the middle half.

Love Christoph Waltz though. I'll watch just about anything he is in.

I'd give it about a 7/10 as well--decently entertaining, but not great.

I've seen this probably five times but each viewing remains as gripping as the first. One of the great character dramas of the last ten years. It goes without saying but Judi Dench is flawless in this role. The subtle hints at her character's insanity in the first half of the movie give way to obvious madness and it's paced brilliantly.

One of my favorite films.

Indeed, I really liked that movie. DiCaprio was superb, well everyone else was perfect for that movie.

Finally saw Argo. I thought it was an all right movie but very obviously "enhanced" by screenwriters, which at times took me out of the story. The approach here reminded me of a movie I loved as a kid, Memphis Belle. It's such a cool story in principle, but the reality is that things went off without a hitch, so let's throw in every conceivable hangup to create more tension and excitement. Some of it was tolerable, but some of it was ridiculous (... could not believe the runway chase at the very end).

^Yeah I wasn't too fond of it as well. Thought it was really overrated actually. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't nearly as thrilling or tense as critics were making it out to be IMO.

Last few movies I saw:

Silver Linings Playbook - 8/10
The Grey 7/10
Seven Psychopaths - 9/10 (REALLY enjoyed this one. It may make it into my fav movies list one day)
