    Thumbs up Rate Any Movie You Saw Today << spoiler alert >>

    This past summer was one of the worst for me in movie viewing. It seemed everything truly sucked. I'm hoping we can use this thread to give the forum a "head's up" or a "stay clear" warning on what is playing about town.


    I saw "Into The Wild" yesterday, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I read the book and loved it. The movie was filmed in the actual locations of he book, so the scenery was great. The movie offered lots of existential philosophy. I'd recommend it. (Adventure/Drama)


    I saw "Before The Devil Knows Your Dead" today. Top-notch acting from Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ethan Hawke, Albert Finney, Marisa Tomei, Brian O'Byrne, and Rosemary Harris. Suspenseful, driving drama. Directed by Sidney Lumet (who is 83!!.) Set in New York. Powerful stuff. (Suspense/Drama)

    Two highly recommended films.

    American Gangster, averagely ok i suppose, action shots were really good although they were a little sparse. feel let down after i found out it was not very accurate to real life.

    American Gangster : a big disappointment -- hardly any moral weight at all.

    Plus with AG NYC theaters have now upped the admission price to $11.25

    Bourne Ultimatum - it was great!
    Tristan and Isolde - very nice!
    Code of Apocalypse - it was better than expected.

    Yesterday I saw a cartoon "Ratatouille"... wonderful! And last week... "Stardust"... it's a fantasy and I just don't like this kind of movie but... there was Robert De Niro, my favourite actor and I couldn't lose it!

    Mr. and Mrs. Smith. A complete wast of time. Lots of money spent to achieve nothing.

    "No Country For Old Men" -- the new one from Joel & Ethan Coen

    Bleak, Funny, Sad, Terrifying.

    The theater was nearly full -- and there were sequences when the tension was almost unbearable, the silence deafening.

    Movie-goer heaven.

    95% Fantastically Good (a few mis-steps keep it from getting a Perfect 100)

    Darjeeling Limited: a collection of pretty good shticks in search of a movie. Like jello that never set.

    Last night I saw Return of the Jedi (aka Star Wars episode 6) for the first time in nearly a decade, and I was very quickly reminded of why The Empire Strikes Back is (still) my favorite of the lot. Two words for ROTJ: extravagant and silly.

    Paolo Pasolini's version of Medea, 1969.

    I completely didn't know what to expect, so at first I was confused by this version which deviates considerably from Euripides. However, the weird soundtrack and visuals soon won me over. This film has hardly any dialogue,
    you have to be in a certain mood but I recommend it to anyone with an appreciation for the bizarre.

    Default "The Usual Suspects"

    ...extistential as hell.
    Probably the best role Kevin Spacey will ever play...
    Who the hell is Kaiser Sosa???...
    A friend rented it and invited me to watch it with him last weekend,not knowing it was already one of my favorite recent movies.
    If you have never seen it,rent it,roll up a couple of bones and be ready to see a movie that will convince you that great flicks are still being made...
