Also very reminiscent of a pretty good Bergman film (or at least I thought so, no one else has so far agreed with me Tongue).

Psychological torment plus a feel for landscape. Yeah, I can see that.

Yes, but it's actually even more specific than that. A couple of scenes in particular. If you have the chance, check out this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nattvardsgaesterna and see if you agree with me!

Adaptation

Brilliant. I wish I had watched it a lot sooner.

Yes, Adaptation is fantastic.

Submarine

Great.

I tried to see the Avengers this weekend, but the theater nearby soldout the time I wanted to see it and I couldn't go any other time.  I'll try again this weekend.

Krzyżacy.  Excellent movie.  Made in 1960 in Poland and subtitled in English.  It gave nice account of a petty gentryman's quest to find a woman who had been kidnapped by the Teutons.  I'd just finished James Michener's Poland last week, so I was up on my Jagiellonian history, and I happened to find this DVD when I went to get a movie for my son.  What luck.  If you're interested in the medieval period and in large battle scenes, this one is very well done.

I finally saw The Avengers yesterday.  Pretty good movie.  The only problem I really have with it was how straightforward it was.  Nothing wrong with that, but there was really nothing for me to think about and really I forgot all about it until I saw this thread today.  Even so far this year, The Hunger Games left me with more of an impression.


That being said, it's definitely the best Marvel movie outside of the first Iron Man and would recommend seeing it if you haven't.

Our Idiot Brother

Great production values and cast for such a low budget film, and smartly written, it was nice that the title character wasn't borderline retarded and closer to how a realistic "idiot" would be like, but the plot (using the term loosely) was kind of disjointed and lacked much of a real narrative, it was just like a string of funny bits and dramatic bits. But that's kind of what I expected.

This is technically rewatched rather than seen, but that was 20 years ago when it was showing in the cinemas, and I only remembered the general mood and a few scenes but not really the plot, so...

Unforgiven.

Has there ever been a strong Burton? (Can't stand him for the most part, much like Wes Anderson.)

The Burt? It's not generally my thing, but I do think Sweeney Todd and Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas are all good. I'm a bit biased by all girls I've been involved with having tended to like him. Tongue

Wes Anderson is uneven, but still brilliant at times.

This is a top five favorite movie of mine. I watched it recently too.

Eyes without a Face (1959)

A very good example of a "classic" horror movie.

The Merchant of Four Seasons (1971)

Anyone agree with my mischievous suggestion that this film be made mandatory at places like Harvard Business School in lessons about work-life balance?

Les Diaboliques (1955)

See what I said above for Eyes without a face; the same applies (except Thriller instead of Horror). Though I have to say I shocked not to have seen that ending coming.

It was actually pretty funny.  Kind of like Slapshot meets Superbad meets Forrest Gump.

The Dictator (2012). I can handle a misogyny-themed comedy, but one extended rape joke in the middle of the movie really went beyond the pale, IMO.

I haven't seen the entire movie but I did catch the joke you were referring to and I found it totally awkward and unfunny.

Young Adult

I actually liked the protagonist, probably because she has some similarities to what a female version of me would be like. This movie was not typical Diablo Cody with crazy dialogue or whatever, but her characters and plots were similar, which worked pretty well. And of course you'll enjoy it far more if you're familiar with Minnesota (I kept wondering what town Mercury was a stand in for, probably somewhere like Fergus Falls.)

Oh and btw, no one ever calls here "Mini Apple". Knowing just how dated and out of touch that sounded is another example of what I said above.

I'm not someone who generally cares for 3D but it was simply incredible in this. Wow.
