Surprisingly The Last Movie You Saw Didn't Suck Pt. 2

The Road was pretty good. For some reason it didn't shed a single tear though. I was more baffled pondering the meaning of everybody who had missing thumbs.
I just watched it last night. I feel the same way, minus the whole thumb part (no pun intended). I think the book did a better job of bringing home the idea that there really is no hope. Survival means just one more day before you are caught-raped-killed-eaten and there is not much you can do about it.

Just finished Inglourious Basterds on Blu-ray an hour ago. 9/10. I love Tarantino's stuff, and this was no exception. Highly recommended to the 16 people who haven't seen it yet.

Since Amélie is regarded as Jean-Pierre Jeunet's best work I had to see it before Micmacs. Definitely a treat.

I had seen the beginning a bit a while ago and just couldn't get into it. I saw it today at a friend's house and being a bit not fit to drive helped out the movie too. It reminded me of Snatch a bit even though I've only seen parts of that movie.

I can see how some people will be disappointed in the film because it seems as if they don't plan out their actions. How would stealing Muzzolini eye help them stop this weapons manufacture? If you are able to ignore or not need direction or reasoning behind their antics you can have a lot of fun watching Micmacs. Definitely recommend for anyone who likes fun adventures that's loaded with memorable visuals.

EDIT: The Blu-Ray for The Proposition is only $11 on Amazon!
I see Nick Cave did the soundtrack. That's a massive plus for me. Him and Warren Ellis's soundtrack for Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford made that movie one of my favorites of all time, feels like watching a modern fairy tale when you combine it with the eerie narration. Anybody who hasn't seen it, do so now. It's quote long (with a rumored unreleased director's cut that is even longer) and lacking the action you'd expect from a movie of that sort, but it's the best western ever made in my opinion. Fucking phenomenal movie.

A Beautiful Mind
Former was pretty decent, latter was phenomenal.
By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

It is indeed set in Australia. It was really good. And regarding Nick Cave, he also did the screenplay.
^ I saw bits and pieces of that, but it looked fucking epic. That's the one that takes place in Australia doesn't it? EDIT: Wow, David Wenham is in it? I didn't remember that. He's not in nearly enough movies. He stole the show from Hugh Jackman in Australia.
Feels like a Leone western for the modern era. Very brooding, very violent and very dark. Lots of tense scenes with minimal dialogue. Some great sweeping shots of the Australian country side as well. Great performances from Ray Winstone, Guy Pearce and especially John Hurt as a somewhat insane bounty hunter. I snagged the Blu-Ray on a whim, but I'm glad I did.

After seeing that Edge of Darkness Mel Gibson movie, and watching the trailer for The Proposition, I think Ray Winstone is one of the best underappreciated actors today. Kinda like Phillip Seymour Hoffman, John C. Reilly, etc. before they got big enough (post-Magnolia) to be household names.
Have you seen Assassination of Jesse James though? If not, I highly recommend you do. As I said, it's more an American fable than a true western (ie: definitely an anti-Leone movie). Most people don't go into it with that knowledge and kinda pick it apart unfairly. The era for the plot is essentially when the Wild West was fading away, hence it not feeling truly like a western. Fantastic cast though. I think any of Casey Affleck's faults, as an actor or from living in his brother's shadow, made him such a fucking perfect choice for that role. Sam Rockwell, Garret Dillahunt, and pre-Hurt Locker Jeremy Renner are pretty damn good too.

It tells the story of all the shit that happens to a guy in one night, but in reverse (i.e. it starts with the final scene and then works it way back to the beginning of the night). There are 2 particular brutal scenes in the movie: one involves a fire extinguisher and a guys face and the other scene is a 9+ minute rape scene shot in one take with no angle/camera cuts.

The Stranger - Steve Austin's newest, it was pretty bad. Storyline was weak and the acting was awful.
Youth In Revolt - I fell asleep halfway through. The previews looked good, but the only good parts were the parts from the previews.
