    I don't watch to many movies, be it T.V. (with no cable) or at the cinema. I did deliberately not see Tomb Raider when it was on TV this weekend past. That movie should go the way of E.T. for the NES if you know what I mean.
    I guess some good movie's i've seen recently would be the trilogy, Blue White and Red.

    I never watched Tomb Raider either, I have been sorely disappointed by every other game that's been turned into a movie, so I didn't see the point. And what is blue, white and red?

    A great trilogy. Directed by Krzysztof Kieslowski. And reprsenting the French flag. Its not easy to explain but the movies are brillantly directed by said person and are based on three diferent peoples lives. They're voiced mainly in Frence (And Polish) so it was subtitle reading for me but it was well worth it. It is rated R though (at least the one I watched was).
    And the Super Mario Brothers movie wasn't bad, if you ignored any reference to the Mario Brothers franchise of that time.

    I recently saw The Island on DVD, its kinda interesting but just not so much, sometimes overdramatic but still a good movie. I want to see Man of the Year, i mean Robin Williams playing a sort of Jon Stewart character and running for president and actually winning laugh.gif It has to be a good movie or else ill lose faith in Robin Williams, hes the best comedian.

    Ok - shoot me, but I liked the Tomb Raider movie. Mostly goofy fun. No, it's not a great movie, but it's a fun one. The sequel wasn't so hot.

    We've been watching Season 9 of Stargate SG-1 on dvd. We tend to watch mostly tv shows on dvd... The Office season 2 was also a recent marathon viewing...

    I'm looking forward to the new Christopher Guest movie - "For Your Consideration" coming out next month I think... I love his movies.

    Lord of War - I watched it a few days ago on DVD. It's a good movie; it was probably the third time Ive watched it. So stop wasting time on this message board and get the movie.

    I get movies delivered to my teevee with my cable subscription. I watched kiss kiss, bang bang, which was a great movie in a few regards, especially to fans of old detective stories. Morlang, a Dutch film about a passe artist, wasn't as good as I hoped, but the characters were great. The ending felt jarring, though, but not in a happy or intruiging way.

    I can't sit down and finish Everything is Illuminated, but it's piss-your-pants hilarious so far. I still can't take Elijah Wood seriously as an actor...

    Seven is my favorite movie. I watched Battle Royal, that was a crazy and good movie.

    I want to see Saw III and the Illusionist.

    Saw the Borat movie last night. I can't think of a funnier movie off the top of my head.

    Saw Borat a couple nights ago. Some truly genius moments in there... "wizards' sleeve" oho!

    Finally watched the Animatrix. Some of the highest quality animation I've ever seen. Each one is done so differently; it's like eating the best part of nine different meals.

    Heh, seesaw. Always funny to talk about whether you have or have not seen Saw. Although I have no plans to watch it. I'm not a fan of horror films most of the time, even less so when they are splatter. My friend Pat loves them though. The Final Destianation trilogy is one of his favorites because of the number ofoutlandish deaths. I watched Cry_Wolf last night and that was pretty good actually. The intial previews for when it was in theatres was pretty bad, but later on a dvd preview it looked worth watching.

    I haven't actually bee to the theatres to see anything for awhile, I'm gonna go see Borat tonight with a few friends I think. The cheaper cinema isn't playing it, and we have to wait until 5 for a freind to get off work so we're gonna pay extra ::sigh:: oh well.

    Borat. Like sex, only more offensive. It had these incredible moments of unbridled genius, and then long periods of mediocrity. I laughed myself stupid, but I can honestly say I'm not a better person for having watched it. The extended scene where Borat and his large, hairy producer wrestle naked in a hotel room was particularily disturbing. The fact that there's a half-dozen lawsuits pending is a tell.

    I don't want to see Saw III.

    Seesaw. Heh.

    Borat looked...retarded and insulting to the intelligence of its viewers, so I didn't want to see it. However, I'm gonna go see Casino Royale tomorrow...hardcore Bond fans be damned, I'm all for Craig.

    Caught My Fellow Americans on TBS the other day. Man, does that movie have some awesome one-liners.

    The Prestige.

    Do yourself a favor and see this movie. I actually don't want to elaborate on the plot at all since I found it so enjoyable to let the movie unfold before you. My standards are somewhat high for movies, although, I don't go out to see many, but this movie blew me away.

    My brother bought me for an early christmas present "The Nightmare Before Christmas". Any movie done by Tim Burton is highly recommended

    Happy Feet, it was pure genious. I've been delaying to watch Big Fish on DVD.... Apocolyptico (or however its spelled) looks interesting.

    Watched Hoodwinked. Enjoyed it.

    Don't know why but I still enjoy all of those "childrens" movies more then the "adult" films that get released.

    And now, 6 days later, watched Jin-Roh - The Wolf Brigade. Which is defintly not a childrens anime, but is based off Little Red Riding Hood, loosly.

    Man, I watched that one a few weeks ago. Perhaps the single most depressing film I've ever watched.

    I've seen a few holocaust films that were a bit heavier and more soul-crushing (The Grey Zone in particular), but yeah, it does have a pretty bleak spin. I loved the ending, though. Very tragic and poignant. Although the story had been leading towards the last moment throughout its duration, it was still kind of surprising. And in retrospect, had it ended any differently, it would have cheapened the film, I thought. Anyways, splendid movie, Jin-Roh.

    Lately I've been watching that Last Exile series. I'm only about eight episodes in so I'm not really sure what to think. The animation is lovely and I like the atmosphere, but I dunno. Aside from Lavie none of the characters have jumped out at me as being particularly interesting, so we'll see. It's definitely not bad, at any rate.

    Well, if it had ended differently, there goes the Little Red Riding Hood metaphor that Oshii was trying to hammer throughout the whole film. Yeah, any other ending would have made the film cliche. Bleak, but very deep and satisfying piece.

    Right now, I'm going through and watchin Hellsing, having gotten the box set. Fun little anime. It's interesting that they're trying to play up a rivalry between Protestants and Catholics, at least in part. Seras is a bit on the whiney side, but I suppose that's mandatory for anime heroes/heroines, at least in multi-episode series.

    I bought and watched A Scanner Darkly on DVD the day before yesterday. It was very deep and provocative with it's not-too-distant-future setting and drug abuse overtones. Keanu Reeves gave a great performance as the main character. Robert Downey, Jr. and Woody Harrelson were pretty good as supporting characters. I recommend you buy (not rent!) this movie the first chance you get! smile.gif
