Kitty Pride is an awesome character, and Ellen Page was great in that role. I also dig Hard Candy, haven't seen JUNO though.

Just finished watching Akira again. This is such a mind bender of a movie and such a visual treat. My favourite anime, and one of my all time favourite movies.

SEE IT NOW!!! lol
It's an incredibly funny comedy. And it's Michael Cera doing the boyfriend of Ellen. Oh and Jennifer Garner is in it too. A fantastic one. On my top list of comedies.

And oh yes man, Akira rules!!! Not my favorite, it's Ghost In The Shell but still on my top list. ^_^

This is The End (2013).  Seth Rogen and several of his stoner movie pals in a movie about Seth Rogen and several of his stoner movie pals, trying to survive the Apocalypse.  All the actors play fictionalized versions of themselves.  The first ten minutes I was like, "Eh, yet another Rogen stoner movie. "  Then out of the blue it got REALLY funny. 

For about five minutes. 

Then it went back to being a Rogen stoner movie.  Some admittedly well-executed FX aside, I found this one to be only sporadically funny at best.  But I'm sure fans of such Generation Y actors as Rogen, Jonah Hill and others of their ilk will probably enjoy it.

Just finished watching this one myself. I usually enjoy anything Seth Rogen does, but to me this one felt really hit or miss. Loved the decapitation scene though LOL

Secret Window (2004) - 5/10

I finished up Stephen King's novella, "Secret Window, Secret Garden" just today and thought I'd pop in the film adaption for some good ol' compare-and-contrast action (something I haven't done in quite a long time). I try to keep in mind that film and writing are both different mediums of storytelling, and that the film is rarely what one has in mind after first reading the book, but man, this simply could have been a much better film.

My biggest complaint about Secret Window is that it was just too light. As soon as I read the PG-13 label on the back of the DVD I had a few doubts. Johnny Depp would have been great if the character adapted in the screenplay had been more serious, but he cracks too many jokes for any real tension to stick. John Turturro, don't get me wrong, is a really cool actor and I like him, but being cast as the role for John Shooter? Big mistake in my opinion. Shooter is supposed to be menacing, intense, and scary. Turturro projected very little of any of these qualities in his performance. The big psychological twist three-fourths of the way through the film was littered with light humor - also a big mistake. And the ending? I love it when films deviate from the book and come up with something original that's just as good as the book. But that didn't happen here either, sadly. The ending was silly.

Having said that, I did actually enjoy most of the film. But only because it made me laugh, and there were a few scenes which deviated from the book that I liked. Other then that...pass.

BLADE RUNNER [2008] rewatch for I don't have enough braincells to count the times I did. Yeah I know, I got a LOT missing but there's still a wild crazy bunch and they still aren't enough to count. Yeah THAT MUCH!!! lol

Second Sci-Fi movie I saw after Star Wars. Stucked in brain forever and ever...
What a truely amazing masterpiece. Everything is great, HanFord Solo is damn cool as Deckard and Haeur as Roy is just MAGNIFICIENT. The story man, oh the story. Daryl as Pris and the way too gorgeous Rachael replicant, dream like.

The visuals man, the freaking INSANE visuals. But the most amazing of it to me is the sound track. When Deckard fights Pris, the wind and various weird sounds are a freaking BLAST!!!

Theis movie JUST ROCKS!!! Period. big_smile

LUCKY NUMBER SLEVIN [2006] rewatch

What a fantastic crime story. And with Willis, Hartnett, Freeman and Kingsley, it just CAN'T be bad.
Oh gotta mention that Lucy Liu is in this too. Love this girl. Extremely surprising script that never stops putting you in the wrong direction from beginning to end. A wonderful one truely.

Yup a totally enjoyable flick. smile

Re: Last Mainstream movie you watched.

I just watched L.A. Confidential. It was a really good movie. The story was a bit predictable, but it was interesting to watch it unfold, and to see the little intricacies of the plot. The character dynamics were great too, I especially like Guy Pearce and Kevin Spacey, they made a great team.

Munich [2005] rewatch

Man another one from mister masterpiece maker LORD or GOD Spielberg.
As crazy mad as everything he does but this story is definitely more deep than everything I've seen from him. And that's a very good thing. Bana, Craig Bond and the french Kassovitz dude hold their character's very unique way of doing marvelously. Top notch visuals too.

Extremely touching at times, when Avner talks to his baby girl and she talks to him over the phone and he starts crying then takes the sweetest of voices to say, I'm your dad and this is the sound of my voice, never forget it... Awwwwww fucking H3LL man. It's truely devastating.

What amazes me in it too is that how freaking technicaly accurate everything is. When the dude describes the stuff the grenades are made off. damn perfect. big_smile

Imagery is fantastic. Oh yes, Steven know his lens and lightning like no others you can be sure of that.

Yup. masterpiece of "modern" war flick.

Hitchcock (re-watch, 9/10)

Fantastic film. Anthony Perkins delivers a near-perfect portrayal of Alfred Hitchcock.

Re: Last Mainstream movie you watched.

Perkins??? Never heard of him. lol

BUT ABSOLUTELY!!!

His wife steals the freaking show. They needed Mme Mirren to go head to head with super strong Hopkins and she does a crazy job at it.
And they needed Scarlett to put some flashing like lightning light into this DARK movie.

A wonderful story of a dream coming true. Touching one at that. smile

But yes, the whole cast is really solid. Scarlett was a perfect pick for Janet Leigh, and Helen Mirren was very good too.

Re: Last Mainstream movie you watched.

Finally saw Scarface the whole way through. I'd seen it in parts before. It is a long ponderou movie. Tony Montana iis a completely unsympathetic Character, purely driven by greed and power. I do like that they kept the sort of odd semi incestuous relationship in the original, and the finale probably even tops it's predecessor. It reminds me of epic poems of the past. Very much a movie of it's time. It says a lot about that era, as well as influencing many people ofr better or worse.
