Re: Movie reviews

Last King of Scotland...felt like we were 'there'

Reign Over Me...BF can't stand "Adam Sandler movies"...this was not one of those, despite the fact he was one of the main characters.
Nice perspective that those not personally affected even think about.

Yes, I loved it. Even went out and read it and another Larry McCurraty (sp) despite not being a huge western fan. Netflix delivered Broken Trails, also staring Duvall not as good but worth a look.

Re: Movie reviews

Shaun of the Dead is hilarious.

I just say their new movie - Hot Fuzz. It was very funny also.

Hmmm...have I seen anything else recently? Oh, yes, The Queen and The Prestige. I liked both, but it depends on your taste.

Re: Movie reviews

I liked Shaun of the dead, but had to watch it in three separate chunks because I was becoming sillied out.

I have the same problem with most british humor, and also Reno 911. Which as far as I know has nothing to do with the british.

I also only like Sandler in small doses (like a once per year -- and once ONLY dang it -- obligatory listen to the Turkey song), but I saw a bit of him him briefly in an apparently serious movie as a guy with some sort of OCD situation... I always meant to look up the movie to see what it was, since I did not catch it all. But then figured it might be a real downer like when Robin Williams played the photomat guy. I rented that one on a weekend for me and the GF at the time based on some input from work saying it was 'an amazing dramatic performance'. Amazingly unpleasant waste of my time, is more like it. I don't always have to find characters likable to enjoy a movie, but at the same time, I don't need to get a 3 hr inside look at a weirded out perv. Why do I need to experience that?

Anyway, am looking forward to "King of Scotland" - I think Forest Whitaker has been great in everything I've seen him in from Color of Money and Platoon to Ridgemont High.

He often shows an odd combo of vulnerability and being sinister at the same time... sort of a tamer Garey Bussey...
