Diary of the Dead: 4/10

The best thing about this movie is that I only paid $1.50. If you're a horror fan, which I am, you have seen this all before: same lame story, outdated zombies, bad B horror acting, no creative deaths (closing scene is the exception). This movie has a decent rating on IMDB and got some positive reviews but I think that has more to do with people being Romero fan-boys. The movie revolves around its social commentary. The message is good but it's done in the "social commentary for 4th-graders" style where they beat you over the head. I've always felt that Dawn of the Dead was overrated in this sense (commentary about consumerism, etc.) and this movie just feels like Romero buying into his own hype.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford: 9/10

Wow. I have to say, I was pretty mesmerized by this one, from the surreal beginning onward. It's very well-acted, a pretty emotionally powerful but subdued and nuanced story, and some of the best cinematography I've seen in a while...well, maybe since There Will Be Blood ;-D . But seriously, the way they shot the old west terrain was excellent. It's definitely worth a Netflix, but be forewarned: everyone who said it's slow is right. Be careful you don't start it too late, or after too many beers, as you might have a hard time staying awake in parts. :-b

I definitely need to read the book now, too.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall: 7/10

Very good flick, didn't overdo any of the humor and kept a pretty good pace. Worth seeing in theaters or waiting for DVD.

forbidden kingdom: 9.5/10
lots of action, jackie chan and jet li are awesome, story and humor was cheesy, it felt like an old hong kong movie but the scenes were very colorful and clear. if you like old jackie chan flicks you'll like this.

Does anyone have good movies from the 1970's that they recommend I see? I have a Netflix account and just went through the first 10 movies on my queue, and am not sure what to rent.

I assume you've seen the Godfathers, right? Rugby listed a lot of great movies. I would add Taxi Driver for sure, probably the second best movie of the decade IMHO. Some other favorites (not in Rugby's list) are The Sting and Dog Day Afternoon. Here's a list that might help: http://www.imdb.com/chart/1970s.

Juno 9/10
thought it was going to be a little boring but found it quite funny and witty. I was hoping to see Michael Cera more. I thought Ellen Page did an awesome job playing the role.
