Movies!

Postby Pelopidas » Wed Nov 04, 2009 8:16 am

Los abrazos rotos :

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0913425/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYdCSGPHHS4

Hrm, not a very good Almodovar, but an entertaining movie to watch, at least, and a very good Penelope Cruz, again.

The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo:

http://us.imdb.com/title/tt1132620/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6j_3-2fTxQ

From Sweden, good pace, interesting characters, intriguing mystery, definitely worth watching.

The Hurt Locker:

http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0887912/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GxSDZc8etg

Not a GI-Joe/Rambo movie. A movie about what war can do to people. Very frightening end, at least from my perspective.

Nothing but the truth:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1073241/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgIMEJpwKbM&feature=fvst

A movie that could be great, but a movie that ends up being boring. Political thriller, loosely based on a true story.

Surrogates:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0986263/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwTJ7mCcFoY

Oh well i really hate Hollywood when it makes such stupid movies. Ok, i dont hate Hollywood, but blah, yeah, HUGE, blah.

More, with spoilers, on my blog.

I saw:

Inglourious Basterds: anyone else thinking that Tarantino is out of ideas? Can't he do anything more than present us violence in a cool way? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0361748/

The taking of Pelham 1-2-3: worst movie of the year. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1111422/

The Great Debaters: descent movie, nice character development, political topic and i liked the argument about civil disobedience yes. Based on a true story. Topic, racism in the USA around the 1930's and how a team of debaters from a small college took a stand. If only Forest Whitaker had the role of the professor, im huge fan of the man. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0427309/

I knew this was the case a long time ago. Clever dialogue and blood do not equate to great movies. He just got lucky.

I didn't mind some of his older stuff, however. Nothing spectacular though.

Yeap, we are on the same page on Tarantino. Too repetitive.

I think the best film I've see this year is Rise of the Foot Soldier.

Love Forest Whittaker. I am eager to watch any movie he's in good or bad because he, at least, always does a fine job acting.

I lost interest in Tarantino years ago. After about the third movie I felt he was a one trick pony.

Talking about repetition, i saw Woody Allen's Whatever works, last night. It is a typical Woody Allen movie, a neurotic protagonist, a simplistic msg, filled with social and political comments and smart and funny dialogues. But i have to admit, i liked it more than his previous one, Vicky Christina Barcelona, because even if Woody Allen is repeating him self, he is doing it so well that this new movie never becomes boring.

He is my favorite "troll" and he seems in good shape again :mrgreen:
