I love talking about movies. IMDB is my mecca. I don't have any specfic taste and will pretty much watch anything other than horror flicks like Saw mainly cause I'm chicken. In the past couple of weeks I have seen the following:
American Gangster - Long but you wouldn't notice the time going by, can't go wrong with Denzel and Russell - great soundtrack. No idea why Ruby Dee got the best supporting actress nom here though, didn't make much of an impression on me.
Charlie Wilson's war - Philip Seymour Hoffman is a ledge in everything and this is no exception. I'm not a huge Hanks fan at the best of times but he gets my vote in this. It's a clever movie with lots of wry humour, thumbs up.
Jumper - I love sci-fi and superhero movies so this movie was right up my alley. Jumper is pretty middle of the road but grand if you like that sort of thing. Samuel is so pointless in it though, I can't believe he agreed to even appear, the character he plays is soooo boring and generic. I'm kind of over Samuel since he did Snakes on a plane. Hayden Christensen...well, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't swooning over him for the whole thing but acting wise he's pretty blah.
Nanny diaries (on dvd) - I'm a sucker for a good girlie flick. I read the book some time ago and thought this was a nice adaptation. I love Laura Linney who was great as always, strange cameo with Paul Giamatti as Mr.X. I love Paul, he is just one of an endless list of seemingly not that attractive men who I am strangely attracted too. Scarlett Johannson was a perfect annie,.
The Last Kiss (on dvd) - BORING, give me back the 100 minutes someone please. I rented this as I enjoyed Garden State and thought Zach Braff might be on to a few winners, I was mistaken. Also, someone give Rachel Bilson a sandwich, she should have stayed in the OC where she belonged. It does have Tom Wilkinson in it though, it's probably the only saving grace, he's on my list with Paul, I love a silver fox.
Any recommendations for upcoming movies? Oz is about a month behind Europe release date wise.
My friends went to see 10,000 BC last night and said it was truly terrible so my advice is to stay away.
