Come on Vanilla, you should know better than to number rate! tounge.gif

My brother has been recommending this film to me since it was released in the cinemas here. Probably doesn't help that I've been playing Fallout 3 and Liam Neeson voices your dad in it. So everytime I mention Fallout, he mentions Taken. I can't believe it's just out in America, I noticed the trailer for it on apple.com the other night! It's out here soon on DVD, so I guess I'll have to get it to shut my brother up.

Acting or directing?

A bit of both. I love his first few films. I like the fact that they're dialogue-heavy. He presents things visually in an interesting way, and his films tend to 'crackle' a bit, if that makes any sense.

As for him acting... sometimes he can be annoying. I don't like seeing too much of him, as was the case with From Dusk Till Dawn, but when he just pops up for a cameo I'm usually entertained. His joke-telling scene in Desperado always cracks me up. Short flurries of him on screen can work well.

I'll have a bit more of a think about it. Pretty hungover right now.

But in all seriousness, it was a good flick. I was never a huge Liam Neeson fan, the only films I really liked him in were Schindler's List and Batman Begins. I guess I can add this to that list as well.

And I heard that it had been out for a while, but I never looked into why it was released so late here in the states. Regardless, the theater was packed beyond belief.

I think I would have liked Taken more if she had been kidnapped for a reason other than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I know it is something that actually happens, but it just hurt my interest in the film. If they were going to take the human trade approach, I would have preferred Neeson's character didn't make such a big deal about her going away. To me, it just felt like: "If you go away something bad is going to happen. Hey, something bad happened, what are the odds?"

I was put off a bit by that as well, but when I weighed the pros and cons of the film, the pros outweighed the cons. I found it to be entertaining, so I didn't pay much attention to the inconsistencies.

In regard to Neeson, I bought a copy of Darkman and watched that a few weeks back, then Phantom Menace... It's odd to see him over such a gap of time, but I like his work, although he did nothing for me originally... I think had he stuck with Sam Raimi and Darkman continued with the quality of Spiderman, it would have been interesting. I compare him a bit with Harrison Ford, they should star together.

I just watched the 90 classic Body of Evidence unedited version with Madonna. Sure she's naked in it, but check out a very interesting Julianne Moore in that film as well!
I think it still is fun viewing...stealing a lot from Basic Instinct. Critically compared to Fatal Attraction as well.

Among the thrillers with hot babes...
Body Heat and Body Double are both films one should see.

Oh, don't get me wrong: I enjoyed the film. That was just a minor gripe I had with it. The pros definitely outweighed the cons.

Memento.

f*cking class film. Not only is it constructed brilliantly, it deceives you in a way you don't expect. Because the whole film's backwards, you think you know what's going to happen. You are of course wrong, thanks to the brilliant writing and direction of the Nolan Brothers. I was amazed by this film, I'm gonna watch it again as soon as I get chance. The performances were sterling too, I'm surprised I haven't seen Guy Pierce in more films, he's a pretty cool guy. Reminds me of Arnie a lot in the face.

Oh, absolutely awesome film - one of my favourites. If you like Guy Pearce, check out The Proposition, if you haven't already. I watched it again last night, and it's one of those movies that I never tire of. It's presented so beautifully, and is such a fresh take on the genre of the 'western'. Guns, violence, savagery vs. civilisation and a touch of mysticism as well.

A real experience.

I just watched American Psycho, I can't believe I hadn't seen it before. Partial reason why I watched it was because of all the Bale hazzle and the topic made in the General Chat-section, and partially 'cause I hadn't seen it before.

Overall I liked the movie, Bales acting was awesome.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Much deeper movie than I thought it would be. Katie Morgan's tits are nasty. And Jason Mewes' ball sack is old man saggy.

Is that song I hear in the club at the beginning New Order's "True Faith"? Makes it even better.

The last movie I saw was earlier today; Mr. Deeds was on TBS (the newer one). I remember I thought it was pretty funny when I first saw it, and I was also 13 at the time. It's about what you'd expect from an Adam Sandler movie, in that it's a dumb comedy with a good bit of slapstick. Didn't do the original movie an honor by any stretch of the imagination, and I think Winona Ryder was pretty annoying in it, but I still enjoyed it. Maybe it was because I hadn't seen it in so long.

Got back from seeing Benjamin Button about an hour ago. The film has won 2009 in my opinion. Utterly fantastic, emotional and overall beautiful tale.

Never thought I'd see this coming from Brad Pitt. But wow.

I went to the theater to see Taken. For some reason it wasn't playing. So I watched The Wrestler instead.

Sad movie. Had some funny scenes, but mainly its a downer. Mickey Rourke is awesome in it though. If you haven't seen the previews, its about a guy who was a major star in pro-wrestling in the 1980's. After the beginning credits are done rolling it cuts to current day. The Ram (character's name) is no longer on top, he is more then less broke, has health issues, and he either doesn't know any family or has completely broken off ties with what he has left. The only friend he really has is a stripper played by Marisa Tomei (who still has one hell of a body).

To say what moves me most about the movie would be to give away an important piece of it. Also, while it is an excellent movie it might be more of a rent, then a buy. Its not for everyone.

Marisa Tomei is amazing. Glad she's been showing off her body a lot more recently. Fancied her like f*ck since I first saw Untamed Heart. inlove.gif

Went to see The Good, The Bad, The Weird (Joheunnom nabbeunnom isanghannom) tonight, who'd have thought the Koreans could make an awesome western. Was visually spectacular and funny. If you want balls out action and don't mind subtitles, I couldn't recommend this more.

There's actually a site where you can have your own American Psycho style business cards made, where you choose the type of font, lettering, business company, phone number, etc.

Too bad I'm not paying for one though.

Sadly that Bale audio is being used to make jokes on morning radio...badly I might add.

Normally down the street, I rent (Along with MANY others!) I rent porno at the only place local... The funny thing is the regular video section of the store is like a museum of old and new... VHS still line the back shelves, most DVD are Full Screen release versions...However, I still had to see GET SMART


I had some reservations, not seeing every Steve Carrell comedy but this one has me in stitches, it is a close parody of even the JAmes Bond films, I was laughing HARD!

I got pretty hard-ass drunk last night and rewatched Walk the Line. No matter how many times I see it, I am still blown away. It really is one of my favourite films, and speaks to me on a very personal level. My own relationship reminds me of the one shared by Johnny Cash and June Carter. Some kind of unspoken bond, tried at times by the lure of addiction. It's a great story, and Phoenix and Witherspoon really communicate their love perfectly.

There is one performance in the film that really brings a smile to my face, though, and that is Waylon Payne's turn as Jerry Lee Lewis. The guy captures the essence of Lewis so perfectly, that it is beyond belief. When he first appears, it's almost like you're seeing a young Jerry Lee himself on-screen.

God gave us a great big apple, see, and He said don't touch it. He didn't say touch it once in a while; He didn't say take a nibble when you're hungry; He said don't touch it! Don't think about touchin'it, don't sing about touchin' it, don't think about singin' about touchin' it!

Dark Honeymoon

Unfortunately, a below average film I'd say with mediocre performances. For a film that is supposed to be a crime thriller, it provided neither the thrills nor the chills. Right from the moment the film started, every single scene was so predictable. It was just too damn straightforward without any twists. And at the end, you still don't know how those people were really murdered; that was kinda frustrating and left me with an incomplete feeling. The story is so weak that I doubt if any director could have done justice to this movie; a real downer.

How about "WALK HARD" ...The Dewey Cox story?
I keep debating on getting it, mostly as a rental. I saw Step Brothers and was pretty much in stitches, and if Will Ferrell were in it, I'd pretty much pick it up.

I think Step Brothers and Get Smart are the better comedies. I rented Burn After Reading as well, and though I won't complain the humor is FAR too dry, it is not in the same league as Get Smart... I never thought I'd say that, but one made me really laugh, where the other one I probably grinned more.

I'm watching Police Academy again, I bought the SE DVD and let it sit on a shelf since then, but I seem to recall the supplement before! Just goes to show, you can watch a movie over again, or a magazine/book.

Haven't seen Get Smart, but I bloody loved Burn After Reading. I consider my humour dry enough to fine it hysterical anyway. I'm gonna get it on DVD this week.

Picked up 12 Monkeys and Dogma last Saturday (The latter I've seen before), so I'll probably watch 12 Monkeys first then rewatch Dogma, which I love.

Slumdog Millionaire. Such a great moving film, giving us an insight to other parts of the world.

Quite a good story aswell, I would give it 10/10.
