Watching Slumdog Millionaire tonight! Can't wait.

Is Paper Planes (the song) in it? If so, the movie is already epic win.

Yes, it is.

I watched Slumdog Millionaire today and was pleasantly surprised. It was a really great movie and the first Danny Boyle film that I've actually enjoyed. I wouldn't say it's the Best Picture this year but it's certainly very good.


Oh and the soundtrack was amazing.

Collateral, Michael Mann, 2004.

7.5/10

The movie was great, but somewhat undermined by the implausible coincidence at the heart of it's story. Cruise's last victim just happening to be the women that Jamie Foxx had fallen for earlier that night was a little bit too much to swallow. Basically a hyper-realistic aesthetic working off of a fundamentally fake premise.

Taken. Liam Neeson + asskicking = Win.

But he killed like 80 dudes, dude!

Taken had the following:

1. A French police inspector whom, at first, is a good guy, but is later revealed to be a traitor, no doubt stemming from his Frenchness.
2. A final bad guy who is harder to kill than all of the other bad guys, and who shuns firearms, preferring instead to use exotic J-shaped knives.
3. A hairy Arabian man who would scurrilously use a young woman as a human shield.
4. Famke Janssen as the anything-goes modern mother who learns the error of her ways after the family's close encounter with tragedy.
5. Liam Neeson killing like 80 dudes.

It is therefore a must-see!

That is until you've seen "The Happening" :shock:


The Happening is genius. One of the most hilarious pieces of filmmaking ever produced.

Also, Wahlberg is far more genius in Boogie Nights than anything else he's ever done.

I watched Slumdog Millionaire last night. Wow.

It is now tied with The Wrestler for best movie of the year (IMO).

I just got done watching the documentary Running The Sahara :)

I've been a donating member of this organization H2O Africa for about a year and a half now and have known about this film for even longer, and I finally saw it this morning! (It's been playing on Showtime in the States)

Just watched Gran Torino (starring/directed by Clint Eastwood). As it came out last year in the States, it ties with Wall-E/The Dark Knight/Let the Right One In for my film(s) of the year.

Best line? "We used to pile fucks like you 5 foot high. Use you as sandbags!"

Yeah, Miyazaki is great. His new film, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, is going to be released in North America sometime in 2009.

Watch the trailer on Youtube! It has the catchiest title-song in the universe...

Wow as in Miyazaki-san cannot be human because no human being can produce something that incredible.

Have you seen Howl's Moving Castle? I can't say that it's better than Spirited Away, but it's definitely very good in its own right.

If you want to see something equally visually stunning, but more mature in its content, check out Paprika.
