Anyway, both movies were as advertised, and worth seeing again. ;-D ;-D

I recently watched Donnie Darko a few weeks ago, after several of my friends recommended it. It was good, but confusing. I also had to read a few wikipedia articles after it was over to figure a few things out and to get a few explanations about what exactly was going on throughout the movie.

6.5/10.

I'm also planning to watch Thank You for Smoking eventually, I'll get around to it some time.

I think you have to wath DD a few times to understand it. I watched it a couple times and it is still a bit confusing.

Casino Royale - 6.5/10.

I liked the beginning action scenes (and the opening animation) a lot and the poker thing was interesting for a little while, though ended up being a little too predictable and the latter half of the movie was a little too dull and anti-climatic.

On the upside, Daniel Craig definitely works as Bond and Eva Green makes for a stunning Bond girl in this film, they did a great job with her makeup and all.

Yeah, I've seen it twice and I still have no idea what the hell happened.

All I know is that it's really cool. B-)

The Devil Wears Prada 5/10

Yowza. This should have a warning on the DVD case, something along the lines that testicles may interfere with you're enjoyment of this film. Well-acted but I couldn't really care about any of the conflicts.

You've got Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Layer Cake, Snatch, etc. all of which I'd say are better movies overall, with more plot or character development and better dialog. Only if you are heavy into slow-mo action scenes would you say Boondock Saints is a better movie, I would think.


Yeah I didn't find it that amazing of a movie. I watched all of Res-Dogs/Pulp Fiction/Boondocks after I had heard my friends hyping them when I got to college and I didn't really feel any of them were as good as they hyped once I watched them.

Since I live in a small town, took a while for Pan's Labyrinth to get here. Saw it last week as well as 300.

Pan's Labyrinth is one of the best I have seen in years. 10/10

300 - although visually pleasing, as well as the wonderful violent images, the plot and dialogue was very shallow. 7/10

Glad you enjoyed Pan's Labyrinth at least ;-D
