1408: 8/10

Excellent movie. It's very suspenseful, in some parts frightening, in some parts sad, and great ending. ;-D

I tried to get through The Da Vinci Code a few years back but I couldn't do it. I really can't read anything Dan Brown writes, he's just such a poor writer. It seemed like a good story, though, so I'd imagine the movie was decent if they did it right (although if I remember correctly, it got terrible reviews when it came out).

I would say he is an annoying writer - but the stories themselves are interesting and quick enough for me to get hooked.

Walk Hard The Dewey Cox Story: 7.5/10

Pretty good actually, the singing parts are awesome and the scenes where Dewey are introduced to drugs are hilarious. Little better than I expected. ;-D

The Departed 10/10


I`m sitting here 15-20 minutes after watching this film and im struggling to find anything i dislike enough about it to dock off some points...i just think it was great in every way with a brilliant storyline to match with a brilliant cast and is right up there wit Goodfellas in terms of Scorsesces best works.

You should watch the original Infernal Affairs it's great as well, Infernal Affairs 2 is very good as well(a prequel).

It was a remake of a Japanese movie called Infernal Affairs.

I just didn't like all the "boom! head shot!" at the end.

Same here. It felt like they just went, "well, we better wrap this up," and turned it into a Shakespearean trajedy with everyone killed off. Also, the imagery of the rat walking across the balcony with the state capitol in the background was a little heavy handed. Film makers should give their audience the benefit of the doubt. And I thought it was very well-cast, with the exception of Nicholson, who not only seemed out of place and couldn't harness a New England accent, but mailed-in most of the performance. It was a good movie, a solid 8 or 8.5/10, but I truly don't understand all the people who say it is their all-time favorite, or even Scorsese's best work.

Anyway, saw Ironman over the weekend. Not a very good movie. I'll preface this by saying that I'm generally not a fan of comic book movies in general, and generally don't watch them (I think Spiderman 2 is the last that I saw), but even as a summer-blockbuster-big-budget-special-effects-action-movie, this wasn't very good. I didn't mind Downey Jr. as the action hero, but I thought Jeff Bridges was hilariously mis-cast as the villian. He wasn't bad as the businessman bad guy, but when he put on the suit for the final fight, I couldn't help but laugh, especially whenever he talked. Also, there simply wasn't enough action for an action movie. It needed at least one more scene similar to the one where Ironman fights bad guys and edudes F-22s. The big fight at the end was a let down as well. I give the movie a big 'meh' and a 5/10.

Finally got around to watching this and I was a little disappointed. The relationship between the two young boys was great but their personal story lines really dragged for me. I would have liked a little more exploration of the family's life and a little less of the over-arcing story dealing with the wacky French kid. :-D
