if you haven't seen it, one of the best of all time. Cult classic and a great movie. I hope the director and Producer can get on the same page for the sequal


Yeah its one of those cult movies more popular years later. Everyone at college bragged about how amazing it was, and I too thought "meh." It wasnt bad, but it wasn't worth the hype.


i saw it when i first came to DVD, but that's becasue i worked at Blockbuster and got 5 free rentals a week and would bascially rent anything decent that came out

Charlotte's Web - 10/10

It was enjoyable. It gets high ratings because of the experience. I took my three year old daughter and she had a good time, so consequently I had a good time. :-)

A Scanner Darkly - 8/10, pretty surreal movie about drug addiction and a nice little twist at the end. Good dialogues and very unique style.

Night Listener - 6/10, based on the real story of a boy who was abused as a child with AIDs, syphillis and 200+ broken bones. Too unbelievable? Movie explains loosely what happened but the author makes his own conclusions as to what really happened.

Has anyone seen Babel? It won best picture at the Golden Globes last night but of course, like any good movie, it wasn't playing anywhere near me. Oh, but Stomp the Yard is playing everywhere so I feel much better now. :-[

I saw it and thought it was OK. The acting was excellent but the story and the movie itself is overrated. The storyline involving the Japanese is just odd. IMHO this movie is being treated like Crash; it's being heralded and awarded based on the social statement (on an international level in this case) rather than it's merit as a movie. I think great movies can be powerful social statements (Taxi Driver, for instance) but I don't think social statements in and of themselves make for great movies. Alright, off my soapbox.

Ignore the hype and the movie will end up being a decent rental. Buy into the hype and you'll end up being disappointed. Just my $.02. ;-)

Yeah it's in my queue at Netflix. Not gonna pay full price for it. I thought Crash was pretty good but it was definitely overrated.

I thought Babel won for Most Utterly Depressing Movie. The urge to slit your wrists after watching it is uncanny.

Babel wasn't bad, but didn't seem as original as Crash with the converging storylines. I thought it could have been better and had too much hype. 7/10. I want to see Clint Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima
which has been nominated for alot of awards. It is the Japanese counter version of Flags of our Fathers from the Japanese point of view. It is on limited screens.

I also recently watched Night at the Museum which was crap. 4/10

I also recently watched Pan's Labyrinth, which was an excellent movie playing on limited screens. Dont let the title fool you, it is definitely not a movie for children since it has some brutal violence in it. It has some beautiful special effects but a little depressing and violent. 8.5/10
