    any action, comedy or combination thereof ... I'm pretty shallow in selecting movies ~ just want something entertaining and fun

    last movie watched was ... Jonah Hex (so-so movie), Kick Ass (pretty good, though have to use a lot of imagination to see Cage as a tough guy), League of Assassins (Michelle Yeoh still kicks ass)

    I got sucked into the Godfather saga on the television Thanksgiving Day. I've seen all three dozens of times and I can still watch Parts I and II with rapt attention.

    Watched Despicable Me last night. Very cute movie and pretty funny to boot. Highly recommended for those with kids and those adults who enjoy Pixar-style movies.

    Lots of Takeshi Kitano, Johnnie To, Phillip Ridley, and Peter Greenaway. I'm definitely going to be adding some Leslie Nielsen films to the playlist after the unfortunate news. R.I.P. [​IMG]

    Michael Clayton was on TV a few nights ago. I DVR'd it have watched it twice in two nights.

    Just watched Carlos (Oliver Assayas). I picked up the mini series version (5 plus hours) from Amazon UK. I'm not sure how it was condensed for the theatrical cuts, but it didn't seem overlong at all. Probably the fastest paced movie (outside of mindless action flicks) since Goodfellas. In fact there were whole sequences that literally left my heart pounding. It's pretty remarkable to see the terrorist as rock star/ political gangster concept work so well. Kind of brilliant, actually.

    I watched Deer Hunter recently. Otherwise, I'm waiting for some Best of 2010 lists to come out.

    If you check Metacritic's Highest Ratings for 2010, it will give you a pretty good indication of what will be on most lists. I don't agree with every film that rates but it's a pretty good indication of the quality films that were released this year. http://www.metacritic.com/browse/mov...ary-nav;item;8

    Out of the blue, no idea why, but I watched the animated Heavy Metal from, what, 1980? I liked it as a kid when it came out and realized after seeing it again just how amazing it still is.

    One thing that jumped out at me in contrast to today's computerized animated junk was the apparent labor of love and attention to detail that it has. Since it was all by hand (pardon the rotoscoping, this is how you do it right) it's just so much more real. I noticed all the little flaws that I remembered and spotted a few more, but they all combine to make it better. It's sad to think there will probably never be another film like it.
