    Agreed I love Tracy Morgan. Every time he goes on Howard Stern it's like a napalm strike of hilarity.

    I just watched 9, and I'm kicking myself for waiting this long.

    It's beautiful, it's got great atmosphere, it's perfectly paced, it's fairly unique, it's touching and, best of all, it draws you in. I think I spent half of it staring at my screen with my mouth half-open I was *that* into it. In terms of voice acting, I think both Elijah Wood and Jennifer Connelly stole the show, and whilst Christopher Plummer was good, I felt he could have easily been replaced by someone like John Hurt and perhaps the film would have benefited more from it.

    I've got to say that parts of the plot seemed a bit far fetched, even considering the slightly fantastical nature of the science behind it, but the 'stitchpunk' theme was so beautifully done, and I think it had quite an interesting moral argument behind it, as it's very much one of those ethics of computing/robotics films.

    Loved it. Great film, great voice acting, and I was pretty close to crying. Honest.

    I enjoyed 9-it's one those films you either enjoy it or you don't. I know a few friends who didn't care for it at all-wasn't their cup of tea.

    I think there are certain experiences one has to have in life to get what "9" is trying to say

    Shrek 4

    Brilliant film. Absolutely brilliant. It's been a while since I've seen the others so I can't compare it, but it's still incredibly well made. I did notice that the supporting cast, as a whole, seemed to be made up of a lot of (To me, at least) unknowns, which I found quite surprising.

    Hmm..last movie I saw was probably Black Swan. It was a fantastic flick. It was very creepy without being scary.

    "Five Easy Pieces" - a classic from the 70's with Jack Nicholson by Bob Raffelson. Great movie, I've tried it once before but I was either too young or in the wrong mood. This time everything clicked. Great supporting cast, especially the waitress / girlfriend.

    Also tried Scrooged - a dissapointment despite featuring one of the coolest guys in Hollywood - Bill Murray.

    I saw the Warhammer 40K Ultramarines movie and it was all right. The graphics looked pretty good, the voice cast was actually pretty strong and the story was pretty much exactly what you would expect a movie about space marines to be. If you're not a fan of 40K already I'd have a hard time recommending it though unless you just have a thing about guys in 10-ton armour shooting demons and evil guys in spiky 10-ton armour.

    Saw "Let Me In", the remake of the swedish vampire horror "Let the Right One In", and was impressed.

    Very similar to the original, which I still liked better - it was bleaker and more haunting.

    Five Easy Pieces is a masterpiece. It's one of the reasons I consider the 70s to be the best decade for film. So many groundbreaking movies in that decade. Not just for arthouse pictures, but blockbuster crowd-pleasers too.

    I feel like it's all been downhill since then! (and i wasn't even born until January 1980!)

    That said, I still enjoy a contemporary film now and again. Just saw I Love You, Phillip Morris yesterday. Wow! A comedy for people who read books! As deeply moving at times as it is funny throughout, and it doesn't talk down to the audience.

    So many Adam Sandler/Will Ferrell/Kevin James comedies these days require you to stop thinking and just let stupid rule the day (which can be a good thing, but is often a very bad thing) but I Love You Phillip Morris is as wry as it is wacky. A very emotional and surprising film. See it.

    Just finished watching all the Resident Evil movies and while I find them extremely entertaining (there's just something about zombies I love), I couldn't get over a couple things that just kept popping up.

    So the evil Umbrella corporation made some mistakes and is trying to hide it. Got that. But, when there's only a few living people left in the world, they're still trying to wipe them out? They don't really want anyone to lord over anymore or experiment on, which is I guess their big thing? They just want to get rid of humanity I guess...to whom are they covering up again?

    I enjoyed a lot about this movie... much of what you did, especially the animation. But the climax actually lost me, leaving me a little disappointed. I wanted to like it so bad, too.

    Just got back from seeing The King's Speech. Absolutely fantastic. One of those movies that is not only engaging because of the characters (Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth are every bit as good as the press they are getting says), but also makes me want to read more about the era and delve deeper into the surrounding circumstances.

    What txshusker said. My wife and I saw this film today and I thought it was terrific, Firth I thought was terrific. I expect Carter to stand out for negative reasons, but her performance was very good, too.

    Red with Bruce Willis : could have been a good action flick, the cast was excellent, the direction passable, but they jumped the shark with endless machine gun rafales. I know the fans will claim it is a parody, just like they did with Machete, but it didn't work for me.
