Rounders. Fairly old film(about eight years old) but I've never seen it. Pretty decent, I really want to play some poker now though.

L.A Confidential

Another film that I should've seen awhile ago. Good stuff, solid preformances all around.

Basically the beginning of the Australian invasion Smiley

Pearce and Crowe both had great preformances. Very convincing as Americans Wink

Thank You for Smoking, clever film that makes very good points. If you're expecting a laugh-out loud, laugh a minute film, this one isn't for you; the humor is subdued which is effective.

You all would like it, I think, especially some of the libertarians Wink .

Munich. Best film of 2005, in my opinion. Spielberg and everyone involved really brought their A-games to the table to create a gripping psychological thriller. Everything is almost perfect about the film.

Lord of War

I went into this film expecting the average Nick Cage experience, fun but nothing out of the ordinary. I was wrong, it was the opposite. A very well made film that is thought provoking and a look at what may be one of the most despicable but necessary jobs in the world. Cage does suprisingly well in the role. The film is clever, surprisingly dark and, as I said before, thought provoking. I thought it was a very underrated film that more people should probably see.

A few nights ago, I saw "In Good Company" with Dennis Quaid, Scarlet Johansen (hot!) and that guy from That 70s Show. It was pretty amusing but nothing spectacular.

Am I the only one that doesn't find her hot?

Yes.

I just watched Jurassic Park III. What an appauling addition of the series. I haven't watched The Lost World in such a long time so I don't remember if it's as lackluster as this film but that may be pretty difficult. It's amazing how bad this film is, especially when you compare it to the smart adventure film that was the original and the novel (which I'm currently reading). The whole film feels like it never got past the first draft stage and has a direct-to-video quality about it. The only redeeming thing is the appearance of the original cast members and even that is misused.

What Jurassic Park IV needs to do is get back Crichton to write the story, Spielberg to direct and the characters of Grant, Malcom, and Ellie and have the story revolve around the military occupation of Isla Nublar (which we haven't seen since the original and we can assume that the military took it over if they sent troops to the other island at the end of JPIII) and NO TAG ALONG KIDS! If they don't atleast get the original team back together it won't be worth watching.

Dead Man's Chest.
Part one was way better, but of course that's too be expected in a quickly-made unplanned sequel.

It's been nearly four years since the first one and the end of that one left it open for a sequel. I wouldn't say that's quick or unplanned.

That was the last one I saw aswell. It was funny but it had some REALLY "gay" moments and tried too hard to get a message across, but that seems to be what the recent Kevin Smith movies do.

Evita

Say what you will about musicals but Evita is a masterpiece in my mind. Brought to screen in 1996 by Alan Parker, Evita features a sweeping score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics that are clever, witty and heartfelt all at the same time by Tim Rice.

Evita leaves it up to you; it shows you the view of the skeptical common man through the cynical and sarcastic everyman Che (Played by Anthonio Banderas) while showing you the personal ordeals of  Eva and Juan Peron (Played by Madonna and Jonathan Pryce, respectively).

Madonna, surprisingly, gives a great performance and really does resemble Eva. Banderas' acting is pretty good but his voice leaves a bit to be desired, it's far too thin for my tastes compared to the vocal powerhouses who have played the role like Mandy Patinkin or Colm Wilkinson.

Director Alan Parker does a superb job of bringing a faithful adaption of the musical to screen while still adding elements to make it cinematic. It would be interesting to see what his Les Miserables would've been like if he went ahead with that, as originally intended.

Overall, a great film in my book. One of my favorites and I'm not afraid to admit it.

Notorious. A great classic Hitchcock espionage film. Great performances from the three leads; Grant, Bergman and Raines. Some say that Grant's Devilin was Fleming's blueprint for James Bond and I could definitely see it.

Dracula (1931). Still entertaining and still a classic, although I fell asleep before the end. I really need to read the novel and see the supposedly superior Spanish version.

American History X. Disturbing, powerful and oddly inspiring. One to add to the list of favorites, for sure.

United 93. If you're not moved by this film, no matter where you come from, you may not have a heart.

What really makes the film great is Nolan's directing and the performances of Bale, Jackman and Caine.

I read that for grade 12 English.  Good book, though I hated the ending.  Never knew it was made into a movie.

You hated the ending?!?!? That part was awesome (unless it's different from the book, which I have to read), I loved the twist.

The film is quite good and Richard Burton (who would've been a great OO7 in his time) is fantastic...

Evita. Still one of my favorite movie musicals; it's a shame that Alan Parker's adaption of Les Miserables never took off.

Hopefully the large success thusfar will make movie companies think twice about using lame no-name actors in movies.

I'd take acting ability over "name". Thanks.

Thunderball's okay..but number 1? With no Goldfinger...the best bond of them all.

Thunderball is the ultimate epic-Bond film for me. Connery's performance is just so cool (Craig's reminds me of it) and the atmosphere of the film is just top-notch. I also like the "race against time" aspect to it.

I enjoy Goldfinger but I think it's overrated. Is there anything wrong with it? No but one gets tired of hearing about how it's *the* 007 film when there are others that are almost (if not just as) good and deserve recognition.
