      I finally got around to watching The Fountain.

      Seriously, incredible film. Underrated. One of the best films I've ever seen. So emotionally powerful coupled with intricate themes. Beautiful cinematography + soundtrack. I was in shock during the whole film, and then afterwards.

      Now I'm listening to the soundtrack and crying. (Clint Mansell btw)

      Quarantine 2: The Terminal. It was a solid 'B' horror movie, both less ambitious and more satisfying than the original.
      If you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind of inner strength in spite of your own difficulties and problems. With this strength, your own problems will seem less significant and bothersome to you. By going beyond your own problems and taking care of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and a greater sense of calm.Dalai Lama

      THANKYOU!
      I had never heard of this film that I know of.
      Just watched it and it was beautiful. Not sure I completely understood what was happening. But I think it's supposed to be that way a bit. Definitely going to buy it and watch it again.

      Pulp Fiction. A little slow at the beginning, couldn't figure out what it was about. It definitely picked up at the end, and I love the message. Still, Inglourious Basterds is way better.

      If you guys really want to watch an amazing movie / mini-series, you should seriously check out "The 10th Kingdom". The whole thing is about 8 hours long so it's hard to watch it all in one sitting but it's worth watching. I'd post a link but I don't know the site's policy on pirating.

      As, I'll edit this after I get back from Green Lantern in 3D. I'll let you guys know what I think but make sure to keep it spoiler free.

      I like both, aronofsky and clint mansell a lot.

      the fountain is amazing, actually one of the few movies I can watch again and again.

      Saw it a few years ago and didn't quite "get" what was happening in the majority of parts. You've officially made me want to see it again.

      The last (full) movie I saw was Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

      I think that they did as good of a job that they could have, despite the fact that the original trilogy had ended. I see this movie as more of a side story, a whisk into the "What-if's" of people's imaginations. What-if the fountain of youth had been found? What-if there are people walking around us that are over 300 years old??
      They did end the film very well, with the cleric reuniting with the mermaid, and the mermaid whisking him away underwater, but with no closure, again, leaving a big "What-if?"
      I would give hte movie a 8/10 Because... Who doesn't love a good pirate movie after all?

      Maybe I'll give The Fountain another go. I watched it a couple years ago and was underwhelmed--it just seemed more meaning-y than meaningful, straining to attach deep import to in fact quite shallow themes. One thing I'll say for it: as Aronofsky flicks go, it's probably the least debilitating (I haven't actually seen the last two yet, but I take it they're not feel-good romps).

      I also got around to Kung Fu Panda today (the first), and it was great fun. The animation was impressive as hell without getting in the way of the story, and there were plenty of laughs.

      The Vanishing- I think this was supposed to be a scary suspensful movie? But I still don't really know what it was about, and what the whole point of it was. I give this movie 3/10 stars and a big WTF.

      A Sci Fi called imposter I predicted everything before it happened, it was dark you sometimes couldn't hear them talking, and it was originally only going to be a 30 minute short. Don't watch it.
      "For a long time it gave me nightmares, having to witness an injustice like that. It was a constant reminder of how unfair this world can be, I can still hear them taunting him. 'Silly Rabbit, Trix are for kids!'... How come they just couldn't give him some cereal?"

      I was about to say that with Sucker Punch I can write him off entirely, but looking at his filmography, he also did the 2004 Dawn of the Dead, which I liked quite a bit. Granted, that was his first feature film, so presumably he had much less of a free rein, and obviously less of a budget. Some people need boundaries.

      Watched The General last night, the one with Buster Keaton. Was pretty underwhelmed, there weren't many crazy stunts like in his other films.

      Yeah, it's definitely not for everyone. Either you're going to be raving about it, or you'll think it's mediocre and "not quite there". Ultimately, whether you will like it depends on how you interpret the movie. Don't watch it if you can't stand open-ended endings either. Watch it if you like Aronofsky, I'm a huge fan of Black Swan too.

      If you are into psychology you will like it. Wiki describes The Fountain as a "romantic drama," but it's much, much more than that.

      Spoiler for the fountain:

      I'm sure The Fountain would have been better with the original $75 million budget it had, which ended up getting slashed to $35 million after Brad Pitt dropped out.

      That extra $40 million was probably entirely Brad Pitts pay lol

      Not sure how much it would have helped to have had more money. The CGI was absolutely stunning anyway and the storyline wouldn't have been improved because of budget.

      Anyway.

      The last movie I saw was Inception. It was definitely one of the best movies I've ever seen and its part of the reason I'm on this site now. I had a lucid dream about a week before I watched, and two more a week after on the same day. After reading Nolan got some influence from the movie from Paprika, it made me want to watch that too. I'll have to buy it soon.

      Scott Pilgrim vs. the world: I'm still not sure what to think about this movie...like the exact rating. I mean it was pretty awesome, but all it was about were two D bag characters who decided to hook up with each other after dumping everyone. That part kinda left a bad taste in my mouth.
