      I've recently seen a couple good movies:
      RED 2
      Anchorman 2
      The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

      RED 2: I'd say not as great as RED, but still had good laughs and amazing action sequences. 8/10
      Anchorman 2: As expected from a Will Ferrel movie, lots of laughs and slapstick comedy, but I thought it was really funny and worth the money spent to see it. 8/10

      Mitty: This movie was good, but I have to strongly discredit it for not living up to what the movie initially makes you think it'll be about. The premise is that Walter Mitty has a really bad habit of daydreaming and he daydreams like a normal person dreams. You think from the beginning that it'll be about his daydreams(like the original movie), but it turns into him going on a real life adventure to save his job with almost no more daydreams after about thirty or forty minutes into a two hour film. This was disappointing because the movie missed a huge opportunity. Needless to say however, it was still a good film. 7/10 for the slight disappointment. Otherwise I'd say 9/10.

      The Hours

      Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
      The Hours is a 2002 drama film directed by Stephen Daldry, and starring Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore and Ed Harris. The screenplay by David Hare is based on the 1999 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same title by Michael Cunningham.

      The plot focuses on three women of different generations whose lives are interconnected by the novel Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. These are Clarissa Vaughan (Streep), a New Yorker preparing an award party for her AIDS-stricken long-time friend and poet, Richard (Harris) in 2001; Laura Brown (Moore), a pregnant 1950s California housewife with a young boy and an unhappy marriage; and Virginia Woolf herself (Kidman) in 1920s England, who is struggling with depression and mental illness whilst trying to write her novel.
      The best movie I saw in a long while. Warmest recommended - hold some tissue-paper at hand, though.




      And finally saw Inception - not overly impressed by it - but some things, I read on here appear in a different light..

      Edit: not really about LD, while using the term is "Vanilla Sky" - I liked that one, actually - much better than Inception.
      Not something as fantastic as The Hours - but not bad at all - recommended rather than not.

      I loved that movie, Nicholas Cage rocks!



      Just finished watching Her yep that's the title... Her

      Incredible movie, absolutely astounding I have never seen anything like it before.

      If you are a male going through a hard-time in your life right now, then this movie is for you.

      It really puts things into perspective, probably best watched alone.

      Spoiler for SPOILER:
      It's about a man who falls in love with an AI OS (Artificial Intelligence Operating System)
      There's many twists and turns and takes you on a journey that covers just about every emotion there is.
      Very realistic approach to the dangers surrounding future AI and repercussions on incorrect use of said AI.
      I won't spoil the ending just in case but I thought it fit in nicely with the overall story.

      I watched both these in 3D:

      The Hobbit: Desolation of Smog: SHWAG PETER JACKSON OOOOH SHWAG! Nah I mean, it's incredibly entertaining. The fight scenes are really fun an original, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. But, and I refuse to wrap this in spoilers because you must all know, it ends right as Smog is flying over to Laketown. He decides he's going to fuck shit up over there and he's on his way and then bam... credits. Bullshit, man. This will not stand.

      47 Ronin: This film has inspired me to refer to all biracial people as half-breeds. Nah I jk, I jk. It's actually got a pretty impressive little fantasy story going for it, something like a live action version of anime classics a la Ninja Scroll and Sword of the Stranger (but weaker than the Miyazaki legacy). If you're into fantasy along that parallel, you'll have a good time. I mean the villains have weak personalities and Keanu Reeves can pretty much slash his way out of any problem and I was looking for something more but I knew not to expect much and I liked what I saw.

      I just finished watching Her, and I have to say I have never ever got so close to crying my eyes out from watching a movie...Its about a lonely rather bleak guy who decided to buy this OS "OS 1" it is an AI, an AI that is literally a person with no physical body, they fall in love with each other and they fight n makeup.

      This is a must watch, Your emotions will be tested with happiness and sadness. It will make you think about life.

      Hm, still got to watch that one StephL.

      Not a fan of comedies, but the Wolf of Wall Street is awesome. I don't remember laughing so much and so hard at the cinema. The topic is interesting, but you will like it because you will laugh from the beginning to the (almost) end. No wonder the guy got a golden globe

      PS: I saw Let the right one in for the.... 5th time....this week. What a movie...what a story...what a great character and performance.

      Agreed on Let the Right One In. Sooo good. It gave me this strange, melancholic but almost cathartic feeling atthe end.

      And speaking of cathartic feelings sending you reeling, I also just finished "her." Ermergerd. Ermergerd ermergerd ermergerd.

      Ive been having a movie-watching-phase - and really - it is much more than a comedy this "Eternal Sunshine...
      It has in my eyes even got a lot to do with LD.

      About a relationship - she a bit impulsive - and lets her memory be erased about her boyfriend, being manipulated by somebody from the company doing the erasing.
      Upon getting notified of that he agrees in anger to get rid of the memories of her as well.

      But while he is "under" - he decides to save her.
      So they start to fight the procedure from inside his mind - him, and his projection of her, who is quite lively and creative.
      They find out they are able to change from the scenery getting erased to another memory of his - and start to flee.
      So it is a lot about him loosing his - well - awareness, that he is reliving memories - for them to be erased - and remember he wants to hold on to her...
      Like take her into deep childhood memories, which are not targeted by the machinery and algorithms for the erasure.
      I wouldn't even call it comedy, actually - just has funny moments.


      And Melancholia - Zoth and OP "It gave me this strange, melancholic but almost cathartic feeling at the end."
      Had to re-check, which movie you talk about - that is soo true for Melancholia - if you like such a thing - warmest recommended!!
      A planet called Melancholia is about to crash into the earth - you see that it does in the beginning - beautiful scenes - bit like 2001 - with Wagner Tristan and Isolde soundtrack. Then come dreaming-scenes - precognitive, actually - of one of the two main female characters - pair of sisters.
      Officially this planet should only fly by.
      The dreaming sister - after a total mess-up of her wedding - but also on her own - gets drawn into deep depression - almost catatonia, and lives at her sister`s - who despite her husband trying to console her - is terrified of the planet in the sky.
      It comes to a sort of turnaround, where the depressive sister comes out of her deep apathy, when it gets clearer, that the world might/will end and is suddenly the one, able to hold her nerve and be there for her sister and the young boy of her.
      Magnificent epic pictures and music - and while the whole film is melancholic - it ends on a note of peace and loving - while the earth is being destroyed - hard to transport - if you are not unable to watch slow scenes and without overly much dialogue - let alone action - but want to be bewitched by von Trier - watch it!!


      And "The Hours" is a masterpiece - one could say, it is on manic depression. That takes it much too short - and there is not a lot of mania to be seen - hach - not in the mood to really give it my all and review movies - that is difficult!!
      But copying is lame - anyway - the article on Melancholia is very well written.


      Well - what can I do - recommend them, warmly, once more.
      And I will check out "Let The Right One In"!

      Wanted to watch "The Fall" next - got it here - but today is darts..

      About to watch Atonement for two reasons, and only two reasons: I kind of look like James McAvoy and he totally taps Kiera Knightley in it. Can you say vicarious?

      Pacific Rim. Niiiiiice!
      I fill my heart with fire, with passion, passion for what makes me nostalgic. A unique perspective fuels my fire, makes me discover new passions, more nostalgia. I love it.

      Cabin in the woods

      Turns out to be made rather cleverly, this is NOT much of a horror movie like some people say, Its pretty damn hilarious at parts.

      That one looks interesting - wasn't patient enough for either The Fall nor Let The Right One In..

      There is one hilarious splatter comedy, I had to think of from that title - with two guys in a hut in the woods and a bunch of college kids going berserk/suicidal on them - and bear gets beauty - title was two names of the guys - somebody know, which I mean??
      Great - laughed my whatever off!

      Buut: I absolutely love 'The Secret Of Kells'!!

      Has the sort of "environmental spiritualism" like Miyazaki has - snapped that expression up somewhere - also animated - but with "illuminated manuscript method" - soo beautiful - Irish forest spirits and really wonderful pictures!

      Ooh - just watched the end of "K-Pax" - was too tired yesterday night - I really loved it!
      Should be clear meanwhile, that I have an interest in movies with psychopathology of any kind as topic.
      And believe me - I have started watching a lot of crap in this genre by now - some were okay - but unfortunately it's still The Hours only for real psycho-pathology - because K-Pax turns out to be a science fiction in the end..

      Well - something was wrong with 'Mr. Jones' and I didn't catch the end.
      That movie got a lot of criticism for mixing in romance between patient and psychiatrist - but why the heck not - Richard Gere does an exceptionally good job of portraying a bipolar person - incl. the draw and attraction, he has on his surroundings - very realistic - but as said - don't know how it ends - got to check if I can find a full version.

      Oh right - and "Her" is on the menu for me now too, I guess.

      The Secret Of The Kells was an aside - because I really liked the pictures so much - an unusual anime.









      Riight - K-Pax - it is the story of a psychiatrist and his ward, also family - something positive for a change - but realistic for modern age places - at least for some.

      He gets a patient who keeps on insisting, he is an alien from K-Pax - no medication or anything brings him off it - the psychiatrist and him befriend each other over this time - and the evidence for him being able to do certain things, to know stuff on astronomy, nobody found out (yet) and his influence on the other patients - here with earthly methods - gets everybody to somehow believe him.

      Quote Originally Posted by Wikipedia
      During his treatment, the patient demonstrates an outlook on life that ultimately proves inspirational for his fellow patients and especially for his psychiatrist.
      That is well put.

      And it is in the end a very strong case for "prot" really being an alien - having taken over the body of a guy about to kill himself - and having taken home with him one of the patients.

      It is a science-fiction - but hovers on the edge to a "psychopathological" movie.
      Beautiful movie - warmest recommended.

      Chronicle

      I just can't get enough of films like this, its brilliant and really pulls you in taking you for a ride.
      It makes you think about what any amount of power can do to the nicest and most horrible of people.

      watched one of charley cheblin's movies
      I fill my heart with fire, with passion, passion for what makes me nostalgic. A unique perspective fuels my fire, makes me discover new passions, more nostalgia. I love it.

      Never, ever watch the documentary Dear Zachary. It will obliterate your soul and leave your heart in ruin.

      Here's the youtube link: Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father - YouTube

      EDIT: And if you decide to spoil it for yourself, I'll understand. I'll understand... being curious why it's so devastating without wanting to be devastated yourself. I... wish I took that route instead. But please don't spoil it for anyone who actually intends to watch it.

      Everything works out in the end, sometimes even badly.

      Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, AMAZING special effects. Had to watch it again right after because I enjoyed it so much.
