  • Movies Coming Soon or Out Currently Worth Seeing?

    for Rental or theatre viewings either is cool. Anything you want to see or have seen and want to recommend.

    I saw this preview today and it looks funny. I also highly recommend against seeing My Bloody Valentine 3D, pretty bad, pretty sure I got dumber.

    But here's the one I think looks funny: I Love You, Man

        "The Fall." Obscure film that I caught a couple months back. Unique story with great cinematography. Highly recommended.

          "Lakeview Terrace" was suprisingly good. I had heard some bad reviews, so I stayed away until it came to the cheap theater. I really enjoyed Samuel L. Jackson playing a "questionable character cop"...

            Funny, I just had this conversation with my friend Brian. He said that Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Knocked Up and 40 Year old Virgin all fell into that category. I kind of see them as a good compromise, enough stupid boy stuff to make the guys happy, with a bit of a gooey stuff for the girls without being overly sappy (I am not a huge fan of most chick flicks because they all tend to use the same girl cliches, girls get together singing, dancing around at slumber parties, talking about boyfriends...there are a few exceptions). As for this film, I like Paul Rudd, he tends to be a bit ascerbic and I like that, though unfortunately I read he is a Chiefs fan, poor thing.

              Benjamin Button was pretty good. Most movies out now suck though.

                Frost / Nixon was immense.

                As was The Wrestler.

                  Check out Taken with Liam Neeson, it comes out at the end of the month. I've seen it, don't ask how.

                    Slumdog Millionaire - currently out in select cities

                    The most simply entertaining 2 hours ive had at the movies in a long time.

                    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - this movie, while quite hollywood, wowed me with its technology but more so made me sombrely reflect on family and the passage of time. It's a beautiful film.

                    Gran Torino - Clint Eastwood is my favourite director. He doesn't disappoint here. There's a suprising amout of humour here... and his symbolism is in full force. Great little movie.

                    Man on Wire (DVD / Netflix instant) - Riveting documentary about the guy that tight roped between the two WTC towers in 74.

                    Iraq in Fragments (DVD / Netflix instant) - Beautifully shot documentary with three stories - a sunni boy in baghdad, the sadrists in basra and the kurds in the north. Crazy stuff there. Nice to see a documentary from an Iraqi perspective for once.

                      Now or in the olden days there was a lot of bad product. Now the worst of it ends up in straight to video where back in the day there used to be an intro feature with the big feature following it. I am a big fan of 40s film comedies and noir (though some if it is dated, a big cliche and sometimes cheesy given modern sensibilities). I love Kate Hepburn and Robert Mitchum especially. Now, there are fewer male or females I would say I really love, Jodie Foster is one I can think of, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet. Males are harder to find (Russell Crowe sometimes, he reminds me of Richard Burton or Marlon Brando on occasion). I do like Christian Bale and some smaller character actors like William H. Macy. Clooney is good, he has that Dean Martin thing working for him.

                      Right now I am on a political kick so I am wanting to see Frost/Nixon and Milk. I also want to see Slumdog Millionaires, The Reader and the one coming out with Kate and Leo.

                        Then we'll turn your name back to Miss B. Haven, wink, wink...

                              As noted before, The Wrestler. SOLID flick.
