So, I'll give you one that made me cry.

"The Astronaut Farmer"

and now I have to watch "The Golden Compass" because we (meaning my Balloon Pilot at this year's Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta) won a new envelop for "Lucy." Our balloon. (See, we take ownership for the balloon we chase... ) "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds". http://Lucycrew.com

But now we need a new name that is as evocative as that one was.

I like Mystic River. No doubt, all films by Clint Eastwood are great and deep. Sean Penn is a terrific actor of unique talent and I'm really glad his part in Milk was appreciated by the Academy.

BTW, I forgot to mention, recently I saw two films Vivien Leigh starrinf, she's one of my favotite actresses. A Streetcar Named Desire and Caesar and Cleopatra.

And as lately appeared a list of the animated features which were submitted to the Oscars, I want Up to win the statuette. It's magnificent.

The Last King of Scotland--9/10
The Legend of Bagger Vance--8/10
Ordinary People--8/10
The Crucible--8/10

Not too bad I guess.

Saw the Edge of Love last night, was OK. I'll give it 6/10. Cillian Murphy was quite convincing as and Englishman. As was Keira as a Welsh lady.

Avatar- meh. I like what Cameron has done with the technology and the visuals are amazing but it does not work at times. Cameron should have kept everything in deep focus. When it goes out of that type of shot things become out of focus unless they are in the foreground which detracts from the experience. Writing and plot was mediocre and it was hard to care about the characters in the story.

Pontypool- Amazing indie horror gem. It is done in the old style, the horror is never seen but felt for the first half hour. It deprives us of information (which in todays world really frightens people as it is an alien feeling). This movie had me doing something I have not done in a while; discussing a film for more than fifteen minutes after first viewing. Hunt it down wherever you are, buy it, order it, rent it or pirate it. Just see it.

I realizes that my Avatar review was a bit off point considering its lenght, I wrote it for my page on one site. That's why I'll repeat though in more concise manner that I truly loved it and it was unbelievably beautiful, I can't recall a movie which can be compared with Avater being equal to it and indeed it's a huge leap for filmmaking.

I saw I'm Not There. That is fantastic. I always admired Cate Blanchett but now I love her, ahe's a goddess. The performance of hers was awesome.

Last weekend I saw 'The Clash of the Titans'. To my mind, it was not that bad as critics say, although I do agree that 3D effect was shit. I also wanted to see 'Chloe' but never find some time. As for home film watching, with 'Sherlock Holmes' DVD release, I rewatched it; definitely like it -- dynamic and funny.

Defendor-it was quite good. It not really a black comedy more of a sad character study. It achieves what is aiming to do and it does it in a very well done fashion.

Ghost Writer- fucking incredible, I just wish that Polanski was not such a douche. Why couldn't Uwe Bowl be the child molesting bastard instead?

Shutter Island- It is hitchcokian, whithout the impeccable pacing of said master. The plot is easy to guess walking in but enjoyable nonetheless. I highly reccomend it.

Kick-ass-To quote chud.com, Holy shit. HOLY FUCKING SHIT!

Yesterday saw 'The Men Who Stare at Goats'. There were funny moments, but generally, it's a bit stupid. Today I'm seeing 'Avatar' for the third time, haha. there are only three theaters left what still have its screenings. And tonight there's an Indiana Jones film on TV. Really want to see it.

Little Nicky, it was funny in a kind of sick way. Recommended if you like talking dogs from hell and weird dudes with boobs on their heads.

Lord of War... funny at times, sad at others. Very cool opening sequence and lines.

Oooh, I forgot about Iron Man 2.

Can't wait for Robin Hood, even though I loathe the fact that the whole "take from the rich, give to the poor" thing is coming out right now....

I'm all psyched for Robin Hood as well. I loves me some medieval warfare.

As for the films I've seen recently...

21 Grams... very disturbing and jarring. Interesting way of telling the story and I actually thought Sean Penn did a good job.

Cellular... fucking garbage. Horribly predictable. I actually had a running monologue going on about what was going to happen next.

North by Northwest... classic Hitchcock. A bit silly because of its age, but a classic nonetheless.

Yesterday I had a movie day, as I had two DVDs I was yearning to watch: 'Where The Wild Things Are' and 'Cherie'. I also went to see 'Robin Hood' to the cinema. Each movie was average or even worse. So I suppose it was my woest movie day. 'Where The Wild thing Are' -- I understood nothing about the message they wanted to render in that film, although I really expected it, since saw the trailer. 'Cherie' was so boring that even posh costumes, luxurious srt direction and cast didn't save it. 'Robin Hood' was the best thing I watches yesterday. Nevertheless, it stays an average watch with no Robin Hood's heroic deeds we all know and expect.

Not seen Robin Hood yet but I suspect that was the point. They didn't want to do yet another re-hashing of the age-old story that's been made into many films already. Nobody really knows the "true" story; it's all legends and myths.

Not today but last friday I saw 'American: The Bill Hicks Story". It's a beautifully put together documentary with animated scenes from Bill's life that defy all initial scepticisim. Inevitably it is extremely funny but it doesn't shy away from the tragedy of losing such a great artist and commentator.

Bill Hicks has been a hero of mine since I first became aware of his work and the opportunity to better understand his life and work was a great pleasure. I cannot recommend this film and the work of Bill Hicks highly enough. Do whatever it takes to get to your local rundown, shitty arthouse cinema (or gleaming indie palace, whatever is nearest to hand) and find out when they are showing this.

Bill Hicks was a fricking genius. Alas, like so many, ripped from the world in his prime. It's amazing how many people who've only discovered him since his death seem to think he ripped off Tool or Denis Leary, when Tool openly admit being inspired by Hicks (not the other way around) and Leary is a plagiarising fuck, known for lifting Hicks' material word for word. The world is a poorer place without Bill Hicks, that's for sure. The Jeff Buckley of comedy.

Jerry Maguire. Yeah, sappy, I know, but I'd forgotten just how good that movie was.
