Into the Wild 7/10- I think I enjoyed this story more when I saw it in documentary form (can't remember the name), but I still liked the movie. Fascinating story

Rendition - Not much to ick from in Redbox so I chose this diddy with Jake Gyllenhall, Reese Witherspoon and Merril Streep. This movie was very good. There was a point where I asked Y where it was going but the ending was very mind-twisting. The whole flick was two storylines at different times. They converge at the end. It was great. 7/10.

Michael Clayton - Good movie. Nothing ground-breaking here. Following the role of a "fixer" is the allure here. The "gotcha" ending with Clooney and the Swinton was a nice ending but we've seen it hundreds of times. Would like to know how Swinton took the Oscar. :-?

"There will be blood" 8.5/10 Danile Day Lewis is awesome in this in all of his milkshake drinking glory. Also an interesting music score.

"No Country for Old Men" 9/10 I loved the dialogue in this movie particularily from Tommy Lee Jones narration parts. Strong all round acting from the cast. Lots of commentary in this movie.

"The Bank Job" 7.5/10 Good solid entertaining heist flick based on actual events where MI5 or 6 staged a robbery to recover some incriminating photos of a royal family member in the 70's.

i dont think i ever posted my thoughts about no country for old men. while the movie was very solid and there was some good acting, i cant justify giving anything over a 7/10 for it. my girlfriend loved it as did everyone else that has seen it, but i found it a tad dry/boring.

My take on No Country For Old Men 10/10


[SPOILER ALERT]












Let me start by saying I loved this film.

Now, let me give my summary of ideas on a particular aspect brought up from hearing and reading a lot of people's response to this film, in particular to how Moss dies. People are talking about how they were upset with the way Moss died, or the lack of a scene. Leading up to his death, we witnessed him basically coming upon the heroin and money. Even from the beginning when he is surveying the bloodbath in the desert, we are gripped with suspense as he opens every car door. We aren't sure what is around the corner. This continues for the next hour and a half as he is essentially running away from Anton.

He doesn't know exactly who he is running away from, but he knows that somebody is after him and he knows they aren't going to just take the money and be on their way. Finally as he approaches the motel and the woman by the pool offers him a beer, it's almost a welcomed relief. He even outlined that drinking a beer leads to bad things. He finally lets down his guard for a second. What happens when he does this? He dies...

I think it happened perfectly in the film. If we saw it and witnessed the brutality (which we got plenty of throughout) it would have made less of an impact. The second he let his guard down, he sealed his fate. When he lets it down, we as the audience also let it down (at least me and my fiance did).
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

No Country follows the book pretty closely and the book explains a little more about what happened.

I saw "Vantage Point" last night and rate it 6/10. It was suprisingly bad despite its good cast. Predictable and the plot was full of holes.
