just watched Tarnation....that was pretty good.  It's not a blockbuster type movie...and it's a bit disturbing but nonetheless..very well done.  Don't watch it if you're prone to migraine's...it kinda strobes.

The most recent horror movie I saw that was any good was Stay Alive...thought it would be cheesy but it was pretty good!

Also like 88 Minutes...

I just watched casino royale and i thought it was a great james bond movie overall.This new james bond character really seperates himself from the others.I found this actor to be more hardcore and also very amusing.This movie is a keeper in my books....

watched "Leon" (natalie portman, jean reno) for the 1st time in years yesterday... its just as good as it was all them years ago, funny, clever (ignoring 1 or 2 plot holes) and some of the best character development I've seen in a film.

Yes Leon is awesome! I finally found it in DVD, been looking for it everywhere. Found it on one of those random stalls in the middle of malls selling DVDs for $10 (which are usually either really old or movies that you've never heard of heh).

The director has signed on to produce the new Hitman movie so HOPEFULLY it will be good (especially since Vin is out of the picture)

Yer Leon is definately an awsome movie, I always worry about how some films age (they seem good at the time but watch them 5 or more years later and they seem tacky/cheesy etc) but this one I think will stay just as good forever. Its one of my favorites and at $10 I'd say bargain!


On another note saw 'Buffalo soldiers' for the 1st time on Friday. I found it extremely funny but I think  for most people it would depends on what you find humerous as a person and your exposure/attitude to drug culture.

I'd like to know if anyone has seen SAW IV? If so is it worth going to the theatre; the link to the trailer is below.

I'm not going to watch it at the movies.. but people who have come into see it reckon it was just average. It seems that it going away from being clever and becoming 'as much gore as possible'.

Hard to say though as the same was said about Saw III and I thought it was ok (but nothing more).

Go watch American Gangster instead!

Aren't many (or any?) good movies coming out lately now oscar season is over. IMO Jumper looks terrible  [wink]

Well Vantage Point is out this week in the states, I'm keen to see that. Doesn't come out here for 2 weeks though.

Let's see. There's quite a lot of good movies coming out this year.
From the movie posters and trailers that I get to see, the hits of this year will be:
Pineapple Express (I have high hopes for this movie, no puns intended)

Last good movie would have to be Chaos;  action and decent story line
