The Iron Lady.

Quite good. Not an engaged film, but that's not a problem.

Russian Ark. Insane. Gloriously, gloriously, gloriously insane, and something else added to that already rather too long list of personal favourites...

Speed, over the weekend on TV.  Great movie.  An excellent example of a movie that's greater than the sum of its parts.

The Stepford Wives

Astonishingly awful. Someone might want to consider explaining the difference between 'suburbs' and 'gated community' to the writers as well.

Both are terrible, though the first one less so.

remake

EDIT: Oh, and A Dangerous Method, which was really in need of more Vigo Mortensen, less Keira Knightley, and maybe a little less history lesson.

most of the jmfcsts (the jmfcst, wife, two oldest kids) enjoyed A Streetcar Named Desire (1951, w/ a young and buff Marlon Brando) last night...the kids are now used to having all the characters smoke in films prior to 1970.

the jmfcsts gave it four thumbs up!

You're probably thinking of the original then, not the stupid remake.

Extended version of Gettysburg which I had recored off TNT onto VHS back in 2007. It has commercials and between that and the extended length, it is six hours long. I started it at almost 10 PM last night and watched the whole thing.

The Lives of Others- a German film about a Stasi agent who becomes the guardian angel for an East German artist and dissident. A well written film which entertains and enlightens (like most foreign films).

Eclectic mix.  Excellent movies all. 

I watched Life is Beautiful last night.  The first half is bawdy and hilarious.  The second half is deeply depressing.  Overall, I can recommend it.  Watch it with a woman.

At the moment I'm watching A Time to Kill on ION Television.  It's a good flick as well.  Matthew McConaughey's character's wife is fresh and creamy.  Boing.  Sandra Bullock isn't bad either.  (yes, I said it.)  Samuel Jackson is spot-on perfect in his role.  Even Donald Sutherland and his boy do justice to their characters.  Very well cast, imho.

The Shore was shown on BBC4 a few hours ago and I watched it thinking that even if bad it'd only be half an hour wasted. And quite liked it; a basically sweet (but never cloying) little story that had a certain something and also some fantastic acting.

entertains and enlightens (like most foreign films). 

I take it that you have not been introduced to the tender mercies of Sex Lives Of The Potato Men.

Hud 5/5
 
Great movie, especially the writing and Paul Newman's performance (I would argue the best of his career)!  The film does a good job of delivering its message about the importance of integrity in a way that is neither contrived nor heavy-handed.  I think being shot in black-and-white adds to the film's effectiveness, I can't imagine it in color, for some reason.  Highly recommended.

Encounters at the End of the World by Herzog. Not a big fan of nature documentaries but parts of it were absolutely brilliant.

Suspicion by Hitchcock. Some pretty good parts, but overall not one of his best.
