The 9th Company pretty good In my opinion. Does anyone know of any other films about the Soviet war in Afghanistan? preferably not Rambo 3 Tongue

Source Code and The Lincoln Lawyer.  Two great movies made just ok by horrible endings.  The latter much more so with the most confusing third act I've ever watched.

Both of them are definitely worth a rent, however.

BRTD was right... this was actually pretty enjoyable.

Aaron is pissed:

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.

Turtles Can Fly

pretty powerful film about a group of kurdish kids who spend their time disarming landmines in the prelude to the 2003 invasion. Apparently all the child actors are actual Kurdish refugees. Implicitly pro-war, but definitely better than like Green Zone (I have yet to see the Hurt Locker)

Battle: Los Angeles

Basically just a big, loud action movie but not too shabby as far as those things go. Aaron Eckhart gave a solid performance. The aliens were pretty lame looking though.

The story of Ian Curtis/Joy Division. Very well done.

Monsters. It was okay, but really didn't have much to do with the actual monsters. Also, the ending was ridiculous.

I saw Source Code over the weekend. I thought it was pretty solid though it got kind of predictable (it wasn't hard to identify the villain) it probably should've ended about 10 minutes before it actually did (one of those movies where there's a scene that would be the perfect ending but it kept on going).

Insidious

I don't usually watch scary movies, so forgive me if I seem easily scarable. However, the movie seriously creeped me out, and whenever something popped up unexpectedly like one of those demons, the use of music (especially volume) literally had the hair standing up on my legs. Also, now I'm afraid to look into mirrors and reflective windows, and afraid to turn around. Tongue My brother is experiencing similar symptoms.

Most recent movie in a cinema was Never Let Me Go and before that, it was True Grit.

On DVD, I re-watched The Ballad of Cable Houge. That is a truly epic movie.

Hanna.

This movie had a very interesting directorial style considering the plot, but it worked. The middle lagged a bit but the beginning and end more than made up for it. And don't overlook it because of the rating, you'll never notice that it's PG-13. It wouldn't have been in the 90s.

It's pretty good.  I imagine the damn awesome part is due to Your Highness being the most current definition of "movie" in your subconscious.

I liked Your Highness.  I realize as a film...its well...not going to win critical praise...but I enjoyed it.

I'm a big fan of epics.  I admit, this is like the second one ive seen and purchased (the other being the passion)...of the more religious nature...(i usually stick to the historical epics: Gladiator...Kingdom of Heaven...Braveheart)...but for the most part that was due to my bias against older movies more so than the overtly religious nature.  My collection and tastes tend to skew heavily towards movies from the 1980s and later.

What do you think of Ben Hur?

When I saw it when I was 12 I thought it was the most amazing thing ever. I should probably watch it again.

Your Highness by the way was directed by a very talented director who has made some excellent indie dramas. He did Pineapple Express kind of as a joke, so I'm hoping he hasn't decided to just do only stupid comedies from hereon, even though Pineapple Express and Your Highness each have made more than all his previous movies combined.

I enjoyed it.  I think my main problems with the older movies are 1) the special effects require more suspension of disbelief...and 2)  they're a little more campy/more sanitized/general audience...occasionally too family friendly...to the point they seem unrealistic...if that makes sense.

But Ben Hur and Ten Commandments...wow...very enjoyable.

Blue Valentine. Very, very good movie. But quite sad. Still feel a tad depressed. Then I watched The Fighter. Not all that original, but quite moving. I loved Amy Adams acting. She definitely has talent. I liked her in Junebug as well.
