waltz with bashir is a strange one. it's an animated quasi-historical perspective of the civil war in beirut in the early 1980s from an IDF soldier's perspective. the animation is real cool. the narrative is dark and troubling. good flick if yuh into history, social commentary and animation.

Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is boss... a detective flick really, but only is civilians doing the detective work to revice a cold case involving the 40-year old mystery about the disapperance of a young girl.  Instead they stumble into investigating a serial killer at work.

There's a follow up to that coming out this summer called The Girl Who Played With Fire... I checking for that when it come out.

Check out the Millennium Trilogy series of novels by the late Stieg Larsson.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest, were first published in 2005, 2006 and 2007 respectively.

Fun reading

Movie #2 "The Girl Who Played With Fire" was released (limited) in Canada a few week ago but only playing for more extended at the independent movie houses.



Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

I just saw A History Of Violence yesterday. Decent flick. I won't suggest buying it but if you renting give this flick a try. It a bit slow but interesting, to say the least. The Fella Tom or whoever he really is real take down some bad man.

44 Inch Chest. No action but the dialogue is worth a look. Some old mafia fellas decide to kidnap a young fella and give him some serious kickass for thiefing one a them wife. Good jones.

Also Bucket List. Two ole man (Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman) end up in the same hospital room with cancer and decide to enjoy the last days of their life.

Leave it up to Jack to take a boring tail movie and make something of it  ;D

Man I have three books waiting on me on my shelf... including one that's been there 2 1/2 yrs now called "In The Heart of the Sea" about a shipwrecked crew in a lifeboat having to resort to murder and cannibalism to survive.  True story too... just can't find the time to open it as interested as I am.

Will try and check out the trilogy still though.  Last book I read was "A Civil Action" about three yrs ago... good movie too, starring John Travolta.

Saw 'Son of Man' an African take on the life of Jesus, updated with a modern interpretation of Jesus as a liberation fighter in an unnamed civil war-ravaged African nation.

The acting was bad and the story was weak... but some may like it.


Also saw 'The Fourth Kind'... a tale of alien encounters, supposedly based on a real story.  Seems instead that they went for the mockumentary approach ala 'Blair Witch Project' and failed miserably. Milla Jovovich was the lead actress and I like she, but unless she half-naked and shooting zombies I find she's ah waste ah time.  As was this movie.

I thought this wasn't totally bad but was an average movie to me. I gave it a 50/ 50.

B & S, take in Blood Creek and tell me what you think.

Just saw "Date Night" and "The Box"... both of them were wastes of time.

Steve Carell is a funny dude, and Tina Fey is hilarious... but it didn't translate very well here.  The story is weak as ass and Steve Carell might as well be playing the same character he played in Jim Almighty, or wait... was it The 40-year old Virgin... or maybe it was The Office?  Yeah, time to develop a little bit of range.  And I like his movies but for some reason the silliness was overly irritating this time around.  Tina Fey didn't really add much to the movie either.  She's good on the small screen and better on SNL, here she just didn't do it for me.

As for "The Box"... steups.  James Marsden (Cyclops from X-Men) and Cameron Diaz play a couple who are visited by a mysterious guest with a proposition... if they push the button on a box they get $1million dollars... but someone, a stranger will die.  Good premise, but very strange, very confusing script.  Small part "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", small part "The Invasion", small part "The Stepford Wives".

None of it really works.

From Paris With Love was a surprisingly entertaining and unpredictable movie. I never really knew where it was going, which is a rarity in modern day cinema filled with obvious and sometimes non-sensical plot twists.

I was also pleasantly surprised that it wasn't pure shite, which is the way it was shapin up to be from the trailer.

From paris with love I thought was seriously lacking in creativity and the acting was as Bakes said; Way over the top from Travolta. Somehow I just don't enjoy the grease man movies as much. I thought the trailer was wonderful. Put it in mih queue hoping for the best. As I suspected, it would be lacking.Don't know what it is about movies with him.

Today I take in Clash Of The titans and totally enjoyed it. No one should even be thinking of watching this movie without a sound Surround System in their arsenal. Without one you would be hearing less than average. I didn't see this in Theatres but was salivating for Audio/Visual effects. People thought it wasn't all that but I enjoyed it so much that I refused to return it. Got to see it just one more time. I gave this a 4.5 stars out of 5.

Unthinkable. Total Suspense. Loved it. Can't say the last time I saw a top of line suspense movie as Samuel seem to do well with these insane kind of characters. 5 Star

Legion. Little bit too much for me but still kept my interest to see what they will come with next. 3.5

But you had to admit the plot twist was a surprise. I didn't see that one coming at all.

Which one?  The one central to the movie involving she... or the decoy?  I pick up on both to be honest.


I ponging Travolta hear but I real like him as an actor... on a personal level too I give him nuff props for returning to work so soon after his son's death.  Different people deal with grief in different ways.

You have more belly than men... I was totally psyched about seeing Clash of the Titans, being a big fan of the 1981 original with Harry Hamlin.  All ah that was for nought... they try to hide a kindergarten plot behind some CGI bells and whistles and it really ent wuk.  Peter Travers from Rolling Stone call it "a sham, with good actors going for the paycheck and using beards and heavy makeup to hide their shame." LOL

Ent see Unthinkable yet... but I enjoyed Legion even though ah find they take too much poetic license with the biblical mythology.
