I saw some american police movie on TV yesterday. Some nigger police was accused of a murder and to prove his innocence he took other cops as hostage high up in a skyscraper. And then there was the usual movie cliches and shooting and all.

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind - really entertaining movie, incredibly funny at points and the story is pretty nice too. The revelation of the impostor near the end was a bit predictable, but the ending was nice. Drew Barrymore is cute in this one :>

Pulp Fiction - I just had to watch this in whole one more time. Quentin shouldn't act. Samuel L. owns so hard in this movie. I like Chuck's ending.


I've watched the first three episodes of Lost too, pretty nice series so far.

I don't think anybody does
The only thing I got in the one time I saw the film (before talking to other dudes about it) is

Spoiler:
That he chose to kill himself.

Vuk, it is just like an Eastern European low budget version of Disney´s Fox & The Hound without songs and much on screen death of animals.
Me and my family got a book about Vuk, where a cassette with the story were included back in the start of the 1980´s.
Below is the Vuk cover, and a Fox & the Hound cover.

Well actually he chose to save the world. that he was killed in the process was of no matter. He was happy in the end because he could "give a sigh of relief or what ever he said in the letter"


I actually get everything about it (i think) but it's a must to read the philosophy of time travel...

The Bourne Supremacy (at last! ) - Entertaining to watch. Wasn't as much as a sequel I was hoping, with a lot of different (new) characters, the few ones from the first part except for Bourne were only in a few short scenes. It seemed the story revolts around the detective Pamela Landy and Bourne was just used for the less important action scenes. The plot was predictable and not too strong when looking back, but it didn't bother me while watching. The tricks Bourne has up his sleeve keep surprising me .

Sky Captain ~ Loved it.
Nothing really original, mixing elements from stuff like Forbiden Planet, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and other old sci-fis.
But I felt it pulled it all together into a consistant universe.
Dialogue was chessy as hell in places, but had a superb style overall.
Also, had the quickest and most effective setting-up of an alternative universe ever
Considering this film started as a 6 minute animation someone made as a hobby,I congradulate all involved.
I hope it leads to more films takeing the "stylised reality" route.


Resident Evil2 ~ Crap.
What merit the overall story did have was destroyed by very inconsistant,poor directing and ultra-cliché and predictable scenes.
Acting wasnt actualy that bad, but the script didnt leave much room for them to excel.
Didnt think the action scenes were upto much either.
The "Nemisis" came accross like a Buffy-villian, which would fit a tv series budget, but is embarising for a film.
To give the film credit, the overall story was ok, and there was two (count them, two!) special effects shots I thought were done well.
(The nuke going off, and the 'running down wall').

Oh, the films font/logo animation was rubbish as well

It was nice, in its weird way. But I don't think it had what it takes to hold for 2 hours.

DANCES WITH WOLVES?? i wish to see it again, its a great movie imo!!

--

I watched a very different movie... dunno its original title (as always..) but it was a frenc movie and it shown two people that meet in an airport and they are very busy and very problematic and, well, its was nice.

Edit: the original title seems to be "jet lag" or "Décalage horaire".

Ooh, a Jean Reno comedy. If you liked it, go see Tais-Toi (Shut Up) and Wasabi too, if you can.
French comedy has a certain charm to it .

Indeed, Wasabi was very enjoyable, and Tais-Toi was quite funny too.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse
I came with as much as I expected from the first film, and I enjoyed the sequel aswell.
Not the highlight in any cinematic aspect, but fun to watch, and probably the best video game based film series.
I did find the editing in the beginning to be a bit lame, but it got better later, and the ending was nice.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - This movie was TEH BEAUTIFUL. It was so deep and brilliantly genius and stuff! And the best part is that I actually understood it all (unlike Donnie Darko)

I wouldn't call it deep, just cleverly edited.
It took 10 months to edit.

10 months to edit?! That's crazy.
But it was worth it I guess, this movie is really good.

And btw, you should call it deep, because it is deep.
