    Last movie I saw was Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise. Wonderful little movie; the Lost in Translation crowd should love it, and so should everyone else. Bill Murray is obviously better than Ethan Hawke, but for my money Julie Delpy has Scarlett Johanssen outclassed. Tremendous film. Go see it. Then go to the theatre and watch Before Sunset.

    ....okay, latest one i just finished was "Stranded" aka "Naufragos", starring Vincent Gallo, Maria De Medeiros and Joaquim Almeida...A spanish entry in the "Movies about Missions to Mars" genre...

    Eh, it was a decent enough film, if you need a sci-fi fix..It is more like "Survivor" on Mars then it is "2001", though, so don't expect to be blown away by any mindnumbing discoveries about the Red Planet..(well, okay, maybe 1 or 2..)

    Vincent Gallo is an interesting guy..

    Alas, I am not able to see Before Sunset. I live next to the 3rd (possibly second) most populated city in Illinois, and I am still not able to see any indie films. Garden State is the closest thing I can get to Before Sunset. Everything else is Exorcist, AVP, or Without a Paddle.

    Open Water

    A decent film, just not anywhere near as scary as people suggest.. In fact, once you get past the basic premise (which is scary in a "Man, that sucks, Sharks are scary" sort of way) it's not scary in the slightest and, i found, ultimately predictable..

    Which i know that makes it sound like a negative review, but really.. I mean, the film is well-made and worth one watch..


    It makes for a well-made documentary feel...I'll give it that. But as a film, I don't think it has enough meat (even shark meat) and drive worth further viewings.

    The loud hype isn't warranted, IMHO.

    For a classy and flawless shark film, there's still no beating the original Jaws. Its tension and epic turn of events are unmatched.

    I have to say that Catwoman (finally seen it) is definitely NOT the worst movie ever. the first 20 minutes were rather good , surprisingly. but as soon as she turned into Catwoman the movie went downhill. still had a great time though. depends on the people you're with! ;)

    The most recent movie I have seen is The League Of Extrodinary Gentleman on DVD.

    I bought it a while back, and had only watched it twice, so this was my thrid viewing which was Sunday night.

    I heard many bad reviews on this movie, but I liked it. It's a great movie, with a intresting story and plenty of twists and mysterys which keep you'r imagination in motion, this is what really makes a good movie. Some People kind of dislike these movie because of that, I just think they are to damn lazy to use their heads and would just rather sit there like a zombie, and when it finnished they decide to bash it...saying it had no brains when it did, when they were the ones without brains.

    Anyway, I enjoyed it. Its also very emotional, not to much, but there is a scene that brought a small tear to my eye.

    I would give this movie a 8/10, and thats my official rating of this movie. :)

    I so didn't like this movie. there was a lot of unbelievability in it, no attachment to the characters (though I usually love sean connery's characters!) and a weird story.

    how can the nautilus swim let alone manouvre in the canals in florence (or whereever that was)? :rolleyes:

    Last movie I saw: Napoleon Dynamite. I enjoyed this film a lot! Most of the people I went with liked it as well, a few thought it was stupid and didn't quite get the randomness of it at times. It's one of those where you get it or you don't, but everyone agreed that it had it's moments

    The last movie I saw in the theater was Spider-Man 2... which was a few months ago...

    I guess I just don't see that many movies in the theater. You've got to admit, it's a rather expensive form of entertainment.

    Alien Vs. Predator. Not as bad as some people have made it out to be, and I was actually quite surprised by it. Was it nothing more than a teen oriented action flick? Yep. Did it add anything to the stories of Alien or Predator? Nope. Despite that, as a simple action film and on a visual level I thought it was interesting to watch. The Predators were great.

    On DVD I bought The Passion of The Christ and watched it (I already saw it in theaters). I love this movie. I'm not very religious and look at The Passion not from a religious stand point but rather from a movie-going stand point and I love it. It's very dramatic and powerful and I actually cried. Mel Gibson is such a great director :D

    I also bought Kill Bill: Volume 2 on DVD and watched it. Tarantino is a God :cool:

    Monster's Ball. I couldn't finish watching it though because it was so darn sad and tragic. I think I got about 2/3 of the way through and just turned it off.

    ..i saw "Suspect Zero" tonite...

    It's a tough one to quantify.. I enjoyed it alot, yet it's very flawed..

    If you can appreciate a movie with some really quirky camera angles, then you'll probably like this one..

    Interesting concept, flawed in execution, but executed well-enough to look past the flaws...

    Just tonight, for the first time I saw Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange

    I had to read the book for school over the summer and I really enjoyed the book. And now I really enjoy the movie. While it's a bit disturbing, it really catches the spirit of the book very well.
