    I watched Half Nelson, starring Ryan Gosling sunday night. Very good. Soundtrack was even better.

    I enjoyed Hero/House of Flying Daggers, Iron Monkey. I felt Fearless was good. The fight scene with the young man's father was the highlight.

    Has everyone seen SPL: Sha Po Lang with Sammo Hung and Donnie Yen Great action fim! a must see, on par with OLDBOY quailty wise.

    yeah. the final fight scene in sammo's club was particularly brutal. and the twist with the wife and baby was kinda disturbing, imo.

    ....

    It would be nice to see a movie with Jennifer Aniston that wasn't just another Jennifer Aniston movie. Likewise with Kevin Costner, or any number of other Hollywood faces.


    actually it's useful to have 'jennifer aniston movies' and 'kevin costner movies' because it makes it easier for me to know which ones to avoid. [​IMG]

    good call on SPL, that was surprisingly good. I can see that also being remade a la The Departed.

    Speaking of Chinese remakes, I heard they might be doing a US version of "My Wife is a Gangster" which is a comedic drama and a movie I liked quite a bit.

    A Korean remake they are releasing next year is based on "My Sassy Girl" which is the highest grossing Korean film. It's a really good comedy that has a lot of natural charm and sweetness to it. It will be interesting to see if the US version can capture that and if Elisha Cuthbert ([​IMG] ) can do the leading role justice.

    & 'Bushwhacked!', the real George Bush story. I don't think it's actually in production... anyone want to collaborate?

    Just read the reviews for All the King's Men, at rotten tomatoes. Overall percentage: 19%.[​IMG]

    Why, am I not surprised? Watch the original, from 1949. It's terrific.

    Wow, I just heard a review of it on NPR which was outright praising it. The guy couldn't say enough good stuff about it.

    That reviewer is in the minority. The pieces I've read, are among the most savage I've ever set eyes on. The Wall Street Journal's, was relentless.
    The trailer struck me as bad high school production, run amok.

    I'll stick with the original.

    I've was really anticipating Brick and finally saw it the other day on DVD.

    Something about Film Noir just does not translate to a high school setting. It was kind of enjoyable and quite an attempt, but just fell short. I thought the acting was generally good (the lead, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, was great). Even the dialogue would have good if in a different setting. But there were also a few funny scenes that seemed to be pointing out the obsurdity of this high-tension film noir setting at hs. In one of them Brendan (G-L) is meeting with the big gang boss, The Pin. But they are at The Pin's mom's house and she's making Brendan breakfast. Quite funny.

    I still have to see this. I appreciate the review. I thought the idea of basically combining John Hughes with Raymond Chandler was a really innovative one (particularly given all of the crap Hollywood seems to be producing these days).

    Jet Li's Final Movie opens this weekend and looks very good.

    Just saw it, and enjoyed it a great deal.

    It was very good! And I just saw "Hard Candy" one of the best films of 2005! very underrated! It got no media coverage, it is worth checking!

    Second that, it was very good. Unbelievably disturbing though. Really puts you off any girl under the age of 21, even if you're under that age yourself [​IMG]

    Looking forward to Children of Man and The Guardian.

    yea man I'm with you on that. I wonder if Tom Cruise is still slated to play Tony Stark, as was the rumor.

    on a related note, I'm looking forward to Ghost Rider early 07.

    It's been pretty much confirmed that Stark's now being played by Robert Downey Jr.

    Which makes sense when you think about it - substance abuse problem, wealthy, in the public eye, flies around in a robot suit: It's practically The Robert Downey Jr Story.
