I read that Jake Gyllenhaal beat someone up on the set of Jarhead. Definitely would not have pegged him as having an angry streak. I haven't seen the trailers for this movie, though I'm sure I'll see it. I'll be home and back at the movie theaters in 12 days.


I caught Big Fish on TV today. This is the second time I've seen it now, and I gotta say, liked it much more this time. I still cried at the end though.

Jarhead last night.


Not your typical war movie. I will give away that Jake Gylenhall's(sp) character kills noone in the entire time he's out during Operation Desert Fox.

Now, this might dissapoint some-the main focus is not killing people you do not like. No, it's the psychological factor of being in a foreign land, low morale, no women, and the thought of having everything change when/if you come back home.

Terrific performances by Jake and Jamie Foxx, and I'll be very suprised if Jake does not get an Oscar nod for this.

Look for shout-outs to Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now! and Patton, among others...

Got to see a sneak preview of Just Friends tonight. It was funnier than I thought it would be. If you're at the theatre and want to see a comedy worth the money, then see Just Friends. Ryan Reynolds is awesome.

I saw three this week: Monsoon Wedding, L'Autre Monde and the new Harry Potter

Monsoon Wedding was really good. At times it was a bit slow. The different backstories seemed to sometimes overshadow the "main story" but all in all it was a good movie. Nice job Bollywood.

L'Autre Monde is an Algerian/French movie which was actually really good. I question the french films they show on campus ever since a ghastly film scarred me for life.... seriously.... it was... uncomfortable at best after that first french movie I saw here. But this one was good. It's a good rent if you like movies about women who go to Algeria to find their lost relation and become friends with a terrorist.... seriously though, it's good.

Harry Potter.... do I need to say anything? I don't read the books, I watch the movies and I loved this one. Go see it. Seriously.

Over the past two weeks I've seen...

Angels In The Outfield with Janet Leigh, A Child Is Waiting with Burt Lancaster and Judy Garland, The Letter with Bette Davis, Thirteen Women with Myrna Loy, Shall We Dance with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, How To Murder Your Wife with Jack Lemmon, In Name Only with Cary Grant, Abandon Ship with Tyrone Power, A Damsel In Distress with Fred Astaire, and Out West With The Hardys starring Mickey Rooney.

MASH: The Movie (1970) Good. I enjoyed it. Some bits were funny.
The Unforgiven (1960) Great movie starring Burt Lancaster and Audrey Hepburn. I really liked it.
Sin City (2005) I liked it because I've never really seen anything quite like it before. It was a cool movie.
Annie Hall (1977) I've only seen two Woody Allen movies and I think this is my favorite so far.
Rebel Without A Cause (1955) Loved it. One of my favorite films. I need more Dean.
The Third Man (1949) Great movie. One of my favorites starring Orson Welles.
The Treasure Seekers (1996) Horrible. I felt there should've been more of Keira's character.

I also saw the new Harry Potter movie this weekend. I DO read the books, and I actually liked this one! This is where the book series is starting to grow up, I was worried that they wouldn't want to reflect that too much in the movies... I was wrong =P

After the first two movies I wasn't impressed, the third one I thought was a step in the right direction, and I think this one is the best of them all, it definately leaves a lot of stuff out but it's gonna happen. I'm satisfied with it, which I'm sure is exactly what J.K. Rowling was hoping for in making this movie, my approval =P


Going back to see it again next weekend though, had a couple jackasses sitting behind me who had to do commentary throughout the whole movie, and people who didn't know to turn off cell phones.... grrr

I've seen Cool Hand Luke, but I wouldn't care for your opinion. That's me trying to be funny.

What did you think of it?

Saw Harry Potter. Enjoyed myself, a nice balance. My favorite of the movies so far. The only problem was that most of the theatre was hacking and coughing making me think i was in a bloody tb ward

I liked it better than Chinatown which was the other oldie movie we had to analyze for English. Teacher kept pointing out all the religious allergories in the movie (like Luke lying there in a crucifix pose after eating 50 eggs). Enjoyable none the less, though now half the class tries to imitate that accent and use Cool Hand in front of people's names.

I saw Pride and Prejudice today and really, really liked it. Maybe I can consider myself a Keira fan once again. Very good, in my opinion.

Finally got to see Pride and Prejudice. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I very much prefer it to the tv version with Colin Firth.


Also watched Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy which was a delight, rewatched Crash, and finally got around to watching The Girl in the Cafe, Kelly Macdonald is bloody hot

House of Flying Daggers, I enjoyed it and I'm now convinced that some people are close to immortality because some caracters just don't want to die in that movie.lity,

Whaaat? The main actress dies, the main antagonist limps off holding a bleeding body part, and the other main actor looks as if he's on his last legs as well... Sad movie, but loved it.

I know they died, I question their ability to survived that long after a deathly wound. But it's a good movie, I preferred Hero though

I'm usually a fan of musicals but that picture doesn't appeal to me. It seems to be one of those "struggling through life" movies, and I can't quite put my finger on what I don't like about it. (Based on its trailer, of course)

I don't think I'll be seeing this film... ever.

That's Crash too. I would suggest not seeing it if you don't like those type of movies, although it is still really good, just extremely depressing.
