The Tracey Fragments

What a mind-fuck. It's good, but tragic, like impairedgirl said. And I have to admit that I was crushing on the probably-16-year-old-kid that looked like Bob Dylan until you find out he's a cunt. Good movie.

Step up 2: the streets , it was good, not as good as the first one though, but still a great film with good actors, a nice storyline and some awsome dancing!

You don't really go for depth, do ya? ;-)

I am re-watching I'm Not There because I bought it thinking if I watched it, I'd learn stuff about Dylan. It ended up being really confusing because there are a bunch of different characters playing different people. I didn't realise each character represented different phases of Dylan's life. I totally get it now. Very interesting.

I've seen no films today, I've been staring at my handball team defeating Chinese It was great!

But the last film I've seen, was sthg with Thora Birch and Harvard University. It's quite OK, a story of a homeless half- orphan, who wants to change her life and does her best to become Harvard University student. The film ends in 'a good way': she succeeds. Quite a warm story.

since I'm quarantined at home, I'm movie-festing like I've never been before. (That doesn't mean I'm watching the likes of Pulp Fiction or Breakfast at Tiffany's, mind you.)

I rented 27 Dresses, just because I wanted something crappy to take my mind off my crappy state. Even though I fell in love with Katherine Heigl in Roswell as strong-willed sexy Isabel, I can't forgive her for agreeing to star in such a shitty excuse for a movie. God, I wanted to SHOOT her goody-goody, mom-haired, can't-say-no, hopelessly-in-love-with-the-hunky-good-doer boss-and-sobbing-over-her-airhead-of-a-sister's-antics character.
James Marsden's cynical, disheveled-cute Kevin was the only breath of fresh air I could find in this shipwreck.
My mother fell asleep halfway through it, which was hilarious.

The Constant Gardener.
Loved it. Strong, intelligent, beautiful photography, a killer plot (must read book!) and brilliant performances. Rachel Weisz was outstanding.
Loved how it moved smoothly through past and present, through memories and conversations.

PS: I Love You
When I told my sister I'd rented it she said "you'll cry like crazy". She was right. I cried my eyes off and laughed at the same time, I fell even more in love with that bloody Scot and knew that if I ever had a partner like that character, I definitely would never get over it. Loved it, loved it, loved it.

Hackers (1995) - http://commonsensemoviereviews.blogs...kers-1995.html

Angelina Jolie before she became famous, with a Vulcan hairdo and a villain who skates around on a skateboard in a mink coat.

Iron Man (2008) - One of the best films of 2008.

From simply viewing this thread, I take it that we don't ALL need to post over sized images from the films we mention, right?

Dirty Pretty Things--false advertising on the cover that Audrey Tautou is hot in this flick...but I appreciate films that explore poverty.

Pineapple Express--I could not stop laughing. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are the new 'R' rated versions of Gantz and Mandel.

American Meth--an informative documentary that gave me a new insult for people with bad teeth, 'meth mouth.'

I've been obsessed with the Olympics, but this morning I watched Love Actually on the USA network. I think I deserve extra adulation points being that it includes KK.

Last movie I saw in the theater: MAMMA MIA!

Recently I've watched on Cable TV and all the way through:
The Lookout (2007)
Home For the Holidays (1995)
The Jane Austen Book Club (2007) (BTW: I am a chick flick and lit aficionado. This movie is the best of both worlds. Derision not needed.)

And I think I will pop Reality Bites (1994) in the DVD player to doze off to tonight.

Booyah...........

With Allegra (Maggie Grace from LOST), yes.
But it's like watching supermodel sex or something;
Far too pretty to be realistic.

Be Kind Rewind (2008)
Starring: Jack Black, Mos Def

Definitely could have been a lot better, from the trailer it showed promise, but didn't live up to it.

i saw "The Dark Knight" today, again. Heath Ledger was an amazing actor. Shame he won't be able to come back for the sequel.

Dr. No (1962)
Starring: Sean Connery

Not the best Bond Film (not even one of Connery's best Bond films), but still a good introduction to a long time franchise.

Haunted (1995)
Starring: Adam Quinn, Kate Beckinsale

An entertaining and overlooked horror / suspense, and early role for Kate Beckinsale.

The Rage in Placid Lake - Australia
It's not what you think. It's not some horror movie about a lake-creature. It's actually about a really clever guy named Placid Lake and his genius-best friend Gemma. It's really cute and lovely and now probably one of my favorite movies.

Gremlins
God, I'd do anything for a Mogwai. Even if it's just one of those toy ones that sing. I'm going to buy one on ebay someday.

Love That Boy
Not sure where this movie originated, think it's pretty Canadian due to the many "sore-ee's" and "ab-oots." One of Ellen Page's first movies. It's about an uptight, unbearing perfectionist (Phoebe) that has created a list of things for her to accomplish before graduating from college. Everything from getting a kayaking license to learning to read Braille. When her friend Robyn points out that she's never focused on having accomplished anything real, such as having a boyfriend, Phoebe simply puts it on the bottom of her list of things to do. She then inadvertently falls in love with her 14-year old lawnmower. It was pretty refreshing but also a bit amateur acting-wise. That's what you get with indie films though, heh.
