        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.

        I love that movie. Then again, I'm an overly-idealistic, disillusioned college-ager so I'm an easy mark for it, haha.

        That said, I think it would appeal to a lot of people--great coming-of-age/American roadtrip film. Also, agreed about Hirsh. This might have been his career defining role, even young as he is.

                I am looking forward to seeing that movie when it comes out....the previews looked great.

                    Saw 'Valkyrie' on Saturday.

                    I thought Tom Cruise was very good in the role of Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg.

                      Plus, his accent was spot on.

                          I think I had a special place for slumdog since i was in mumbai a year before the attacks... the memories came back pretty vividly... it was also sad to see the victoria terminus in so many shots (one of the attacks was there). Anyways, I totally loved it. But I'm from Hong Kong and I've grown up around a lot of India culture, with id say 50% indian friends so maybe my taste is quite specific.

                            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.
                            Did you actually have expectations going into Paul Blart? 30 second ads were more than enough for me.

                            I've heard good things about Tell No One. I'll have to check that one out. Glad to see someone else here saw Lives of Others. Outstanding film.

                            Che does look intriguing. I've heard they did a good job of keeping it fairly apolitical (if that is possible in a film about Che) instead of sensationalizing his life, which I tend to prefer in biopics. The Oscar voters apparently can't understand a biopic if there isn't swelling music every other scene or trite speeches at the end to wrap things up, but I appreciate a director that gives the audience enough credit to come to its own conclusion.

                              I expected something light with some laughs in Paul Blart. My expectations were calibrated for what it appeared to be on ads, but even with somewhat lower standards, it was still a disappontment. You know the plots going to be flimsy but you at least hope for a few laughs but there were very few.

                              Yeah, Ive taken to watching mostly Indies/arthouse and foreign films (namely french movies). Theyre a lot better than what hollywood is putting out...its been that way for a while actually.
