    I saw Gran Torino on Saturday not really knowing what it was about beforehand. I liked it. I enjoyed the fact that it wasn't PC. I also found it amusing. Very good work, once again, by Clint.

    ^ All that time, Dirty Harry turned out to be a hibernating genius. Mystic River is Greek tragedy.

    Doubt - Best movie of the year (I've seen all the nominations-and liked most), but....
    due to it's controversial subject matter,
    I Doubt it will get it's just due at the awards ceremony

    Biggest waste of money (glad I downloaded it for free)- Revolutionary Road
    I liked it better the first time I saw it -when it was called
    "Who's Afraid of Virgina Wolf"
    Done with better witting, and better actors!
    I will say that the mentally unstable "Friend" brougt
    to dinner was well played, and at the end.....that's exactly
    how I felt about the whole movie Spoiler Alert:
    I too wished I could have turned down my hearing device,
    and tuned the whole thing out

    Default Revolutionary Road

    B+

    DiCaprio just keeps getting better all the time. Your next DeNiro.

    Winslet -- between THIS film and The Reader, all you need more to know about Kate Winslet is her bathroom habits. Enough already...she needs to get a new agent, or get some common sense.

    Thomas Newman (soundtrack). Simply the greatest film composer today. Sorely overlooked by AMPAS.

    Sam Mendes (director). Excellent, but had he demanded better editing this would have turned a B+ film into an A in short order.

    Scene stealer: the actor who portrayed the mentally ill mathematician. His performance was worth the price of admission. WHO IS THIS ACTOR? He was AMAZING!

    ...and finally, set direction and costuming was TERRIFIC. You gotta love those 50s/60s men's suits and narrow ties. Wow.

    His name is Michael Shannon and he's been nominated for an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor for this performance.

    More on Shannon at imdb

    I had not been to the movies since I saw "The Lively Set" with Pamela Tiffin and Doug McClure (-A) but they dragged me out to see "Milk" over the weekend.

    I spend most of my time at the movies mainly looking at the art direction and thinking about what I have to do in the morning, but I must say I did enjoy this.

    In recent years, Eastwood turns out to be a deep guy with a sense of tragedy and a sense of humor. Trick ending to this movie; didn't see it coming. (Don't tell what it is!)

    "International." Clive Owen as an Interpol agent hot on the heels of the conspirators that actually run the world. An ending the MPAA would have suppressed in its day.

    ^ Oh...and you get to see them utterly destroy the interior of the Guggenheim in a vicious gunfight.

    Taken - excellent movie, although Neeson shows his age in some of the more 'action packed' sequences.

    Friday the 13th - dreadful waste of money and time.

    ^ My friend wanted me to see Friday the 13th this weekend. I will make sure she gets the message.


    Movies I have seen lately,

    Gran Toirino (Good), Doubt (Very Good), Milk (Very Good), Case of Benjamin Button (Very Good), Unborn (Bad), The Day The Earth Stood Still (Ok), Yes Man (Ok), I guess that is it.

    Just wait till he plays Richard Kuklinski.

    My favorite film was Taken, saw it recently. Liam Neeson is badass at showing off his krav maga to some bad Albanian dudes.

    Greetings from beautiful Oradea everyone, 30 cm of snow and still coming down.

    Nagyvarad, Vauban fortress included. Awesome town.

    Went to "Confessions of a Shopaholic" with my aunt and uncle tonight. It had some hilarious parts, as well as some slow parts... it had everything!

    Anyone else seen this?
