    I thought Benjamin Button was great. I do have a thing for Cate Blanchett though.

      You know, I got a little curious to see what came out this year. There really were some awful movies, plus a lot of things that I never heard of and very few I actually saw or wanted to see. Dark Knight was probably one of my favorite films this year actually.

        I'm glad to see people here liked Benjamin Button.

        I think since 2005 we've had awesome movies come out every year. Before then, there was about a 5 year drought where only utter crap was being shown.

          Good one mentioning 'The Fall', Slyinky. I almost forgot about that one.

          I've seen 7 pounds, Changeling, Benjamin Button, Slumdog Millionaire and Gran Torino.

          Gran Torino is by far the best movie out of that bunch with Benjamin Button being a complete waste of 3 hours. It was the only movie out of that bunch that I would not want to watch again.

              Agreed. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten to see any other recent releases. Slumdog, Gran Torino, Benjamin Button, and Milk are on my want-to-see list.

                      I'd say Eastwood's more recent movies of Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers, and Letters From Iwo Jima are a better comparison than Space Cowboys.

                          I just got done reading the book "Into the Wild" by John Krakauer. It's a very compelling story about a kid who graduates college, and then hits the road for adventure across America. I absolutely loved the book, and so I picked up the movie - Great freaking movie. They did a fantastic job with the story.

                          Besides that, I'm becoming a big Emile Hirsh fan. He was great in Lords of Dogtown. I thought he did well in Alpha Dog too. This role, however, was special. Especially towards the end of the show. A very believable performance from an up and comer.

                          I highly recommend this flick.

                            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.
                            Two weekends ago I saw Slumdog Millionaire. Its not horrible, in fact, Id say its good. But its also way overhyped for what it is. Theres such a dearth of movies though.

                            One movie to avoid is Paul Blart. I saw that Saturday. Wow, that sucked.

                            One movie that Id definitely recommend is Tell No One. Its a french movie that should be showing available on Net Flix soon if its not already. I saw it a few months ago. It was no The Lives of Others but it was an excellent film.

                            One movie that I want to see is Che.
