    I liked League of Extraordinary............ My kids have had us watch at least once every year for the last few years.

    In the vein of Sherlock Holmes, I liked The Raven with John Cusack. If you are on a 90's kick, The Mummy movies are enjoyable.

    yes, the writing and directing was crap. but it had some cute moments. i really had to try hard not to shut it off in the middle.


    this is true.

    This Is The End. So stupid but some hilarious scenes. Well worth the matinee price. Danny McBride was gold as usual.

    Delicacy, nice French with Ms Tautou . No breasts though.
    Do Not Disturb, French 'Humpday' re-make. Adorable Laetitia Casta.
    La Grande Bellezza - Cannes-shortlisted Paolo Sorrentino nomination with Tony Servillo on top form as Rome journalist doing the evening rounds in decadent present- day Rome.
    The Great Gatsby - I wasted 5euro on this crap. Blah.

    End of Watch. Stylish and well acted, but the writing and story were mediocre. Worth a free watch on Netflix if you got nothing better to do.

    A Quiet Life/Una Vita Tranquilla(2010)- ex-mafia's new life as restaurateur in Germany disturbed by son's contact for contract hit in town. Well acted as always by Servillo. This followed The Consequences of Love, where he had similar role but didn't escape at the end.

    I'm still chewing on it (a sign of its greatness). Certainly I put it in the same conversation with greats like Chinatown, and I also tend to prefer Leone over Ford Coppola so you'll get no argument from me by ranking it ahead of The Godfather I/II and Apocalypse Now. Best ever is obviously a pretty strong term, but there is no reason why it shouldn't be in most top 25 lists.

    I also watched The Proposition yesterday. Talk about a 1-2 gut punch of power between these two. I'd say The Proposition is the most underrated film since 2000 and is a top 10 Western of all time.
