The President's Last Bang- 7.5/10- Saw this the other day on Demand. Very entertaining true story (well based on the true story) about the assassination of the South Korean dictator in 1979. This story, despite being dramatic, is actually very funny. The President's Last Bang made you think about the true motivation of people who claim to be acting in the best interests of their country.

It is so well done that only a few movies gave me chills like the Zodiac: Silence of the Lambs, Se7en, No Country for Old Man.


yeah, i liked it a lot...when he's in the house with that guy who does the voice of Roger Rabbit (Charles Fliesher? Flieshman?) that part is really creepy


yes. that scene was super creepy. actually, probably the only "climax" in the whole movie if you think about, yet still, the film manages to keep your attention throughout.

Awake- 7/10...This movie had such a good storyline that it should have been soooo much better, but just didnt come thru. Their were some surprising twists but they felt a bit forced and although i got thru it fairly entertained, i dont think they did all they could with it...of course, its a must watch because the one and only Jessica Alba is in it ;-D ;-D ;-D

Mr Woodcock 7/10...it was on HBO, and I needed something to watch while working out. I thought Billy Bob Thornton did a nice job as the archetypical psycho gym teacher. Also, there were more funny parts in it than I thought there would be, but overall it was a take it/leave it kind of movie. Stiffler really wasn't good. I wouldn't have watched it (and wouldn't watch it again) if I had something else...

..by the way, anyone see Pineapple Express? I'm curious what you think about it...

21: 7.5/10

Only decent acting and plot, with a fairly obvious ending, but very entertaining regardless. ;-D

Walk Hard - so after watching i went to check out the deleted scenes only to realize there was an Extended Directors Cut which i decided i was pretty glad i didnt watch. i laughed at a few parts, and the songs were pretty clever, but overall i wasnt very impressed
5/10

The Usual Suspects- 10/10 this is a masterpiece of a film in my book and Kevin Spacey is the man. He grabs your attention from the beginning and has you on the edge of your seat about what happened that night...with a classic ending that i`ve only seen a few movies outdo( Se7en with Spacey himself being one of them), this was one helluva movie. ;-D

I have to admit, rating movies is not a strong suit for me. I'm too nice... O:-)

How's about a 5? Like I said, it was better than I thought it would be, but not rewatchable...

Tropic Thunder- 9/10
Absolutely hilarious, Matthew M and Tom C, kinda steal the show but in a weird way. And Jack Black is jack black, but Robert Downey Jr. Is hilarious, and does a great job.
