Fight Club - 9.5/10

I really, really, really like the anarchic theme to the movie. I'm Marxist-anarchosyndicalist in my pure political ideology (I know, odd combo), but my platforms are tempered by truths of reality and how they limits the practical applications of my beliefs, so I don't speak in radical overtones. But deep down, I wouldn't mind to see the collapse of corporate assassins of social progess. This movie really appealed to my inner Weatherman. ;-D

BTW, anyone wanna join the "I Haven't Seen The Dark Knight Yet" club? :-/

Burn after reading - 9/10 - Instant classic. Definitely the funniest movie of the year. Great characters, great intertwining storylines and dialogues. Coen Bros are awesome. ;-D

Goldfinger - 8/10

This movie is so dated it's almost like an unintentional comedy. It has shades of racism and sexism that were kind of around at the time (going by my grandparents attitudes).

Favourite quote:

Bond smacks his girlfriend on the butt and says "Run along, men talking." Hilarious. :-b

From one of the writers of Monk about Goldfinger. He also hosts a brilliant show on WFMU out of New Jersey.

I'm surprised, I thought the previews looked kind of lame. Maybe I will check it out after all... ;-D

I thought the previews looked boring, the reviews have been poor, and I will not be seeing it.

Traitor

Not too bad at all. It was a little slow and deliberate at times it didn't need to be, and other times it went quickly through plot that could have been explored in more detail; particularly once things ramped up near the end. Overall, though, you really can't get a bad performance from Don Cheadle, the rest of the cast was at least sufficient for their part, the plot was a different look at terrorism and the religion behind it, and there was a nice twist. You don't need to see it at the theater, but you could do worse at home.

7.5/10.0

Reviews are poor? 78% on RT and 8.2 on IMDB. It's hilarious.

I read articles on 2 major news sites just the other day each of which basically said it was a dud, and the reviews from the "professionals" on Yahoo were uninspiring. The overall B- from the Yahoo proletariat doesn't help, either.

Probably doesn't help that I'm not a fan of most Coen stuff, either.
