Speaking of which, it's not a movie, but I literally just finished watching an X-Files episode called "The Unnatural". It's basically about how a Negro League slugger named Josh Exley who supposedly broke Babe Ruth's single-season home run record (thinly veiled reference to Josh Gibson) was actually a shapeshifting alien. He played for the Roswell Grays in 1947, which is both an obvious reference to the Homestead Grays, which Gibson played for, and Grays the aliens.

10/10 :-b

Following

Christopher Nolan's first film, I've been interested in seeing it since I first saw Memento, the story was interesting and the acting was well done. I enjoyed the pacing and the piecing together of the story, if you enjoyed Memento it's definitely worth a watch.

8.5/10

anyway watched american psycho yesterday for the first time and i'd give it a 7.5/10, i'd say an 8/10 is a must-see so this movie just missed it. it is extremely intense, sex, blood, violence, the whole nine yards, Christian Bale did a great job and it really was his breakthrough movie. It has some deeper undercutting tones than a simple serial killer too which adds to the movie. i did not read the book, but i heard it was much "dirtier" than the movie and if the movie were based more closely off the book it would have been rated NC-17. if you have a strong stomach, like intense movies, like Christian Bale or just like good murder/killing movies then see it.

American Psycho is a brilliant satire and really has nothing to do with killing at all. 9/10 for me, one of my all-time favs that I can quote volumes from. I laugh through most of it.



American Psycho was a very good satire of the 1980s culture. It wasn't one of my all-time favorites but still a very good movie.

I'd give it an 8/10.

That movie does have some great quotes.
Daisy: What do you do?
Patrick Bateman: I'm into... well murders and executions mostly.
Daisy: Do you like it?
Patrick Bateman: It depends. Why?


Patrick Bateman: He was into that whole Yale thing.
Donald Kimball: Yale thing?
Patrick Bateman: Yeah, Yale thing.
Donald Kimball: What whole Yale thing?
Patrick Bateman: Well, he was probably a closet homosexual who did a lot of cocaine. That whole Yale thing.



BTW the ending of that movie, which i won't give away, is absolutely classic.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

Step Brothers- 7.5/10 pretty good comedy which met my expectations...Saw it on some grainy footage so i may have missed out on some things visually that may have been funnier to me had i seen it on the big screen, but all in all a good comedy flick with Ferrell reverting back to his hilarious ways.

Fantastic Four. 6/10

I was entertained I guess, but it was pretty bland for a Super Hero Movie, pretty bad acting, and yeah kinda boring at times.

The Dark Knight - 8/10

finally got around to seeing it today (1010am, and lost my wallet in the process :-C )

Pretty solid movie all around, but it definitely could have been executed better in the broader sense. I the last person on earth to complain about a movie being too long, but for this one, its was too long because it was too short. There was too much going on story-wise to give each angle the treatment it deserves. This movie should have been two 2-hr movies with more backgrounding. I didn't like just seeing the Joker pop up here and there, I wanted to see him when he wasn't "on stage" b/c then you get the full sense of the character. Dent becoming Two-Face was too lighty treated. Basically the movie ended just fine, but I was left wanting more in the middle. Its kind of like going to a real nice restaurant where the food is unreal, but the portions are too small. It was all great, but there just wasn't enough.

Ha, nice analogy. I managed to catch TDK on IMAX last night and it was like getting stuffed on filet mignon. :-L

Shrek 3 - It couldn't even hold my attention...oh how far they fell from the original. I honestly can't remember what was happening, other than Donkey had babies with the dragon and him and the cat switched bodies. Just bad. 3/10.

The Da Vinci Code - Solid movie. I really enjoyed the book (albeit not as much as Angels and Demons - a movie I'm hotly anticipating) It was like 2 and half hours and it still didn't feel like it had the breadth of the novel - but everything important was in there. As much as I love Tom Hanks - I just never pictured him as Robert Langdon when reading the novels. 7.5/10.

just saw wedding crashers for the first time...8.5/10 really a great comedy as owen wilson and vince vaughn are hilarious throughout and its better than your average comedy because it has a storyline in which you actually have a genuine care for the character`s situation. ;-D
