Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay
it was seriously hilarious. full of LOL. I highly recommend it.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is quite a classic! Saw it 2 times and enjoyed every minute of it. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll probably be frightened, but you could be doing The Time Warp all over again.
I thought Persepolis was a great film. It's an autobiographical animated film about how the woman (Marjane Satrapi) went throught the traumatic events in Iran throughout the late-'70s and early-'80s and ends up living in Europe without her family being around her. Later, she goes through a deep depression and tries hard to go back to normal after the circumstances.
The Counterfeiters and
Home alone 3 (well it was on the flight back from Valletta but I neglected to put my headphones in)
Oh and some movie with Brian Dennehy as an American diplomat, on True Movies 2 which I've actually seen before.
If he isn't dead Brian will be the next President of the US of A.
Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself
the great dictator
starring charlie chaplin,a brilliant satire filmed in 1940,its odd to hear charlie chaplin speak as i had only seen a few of his silent films,pure genius work.
I accidentally saw part of this film where a person was wearing a rubber suit made to look like a dog outfit.
i watched david lynch's 'the elephant man" last night,such a well filmed production,sometimes lynch loses me but he had it down perfectly with this film,it is very much heartbreaking and a very sad film in many ways.
it has been a few years since i last saw it,its not a film you can just pop on and watch,it should get to you,or you are just emotionally dead,which is always possible.john hurt as joseph merrick is superb as is anthony hopkins.
two of the more powerful scenes....
the final scene where he sleeps without all the pillows that he usually needed for the massive weight of his head ,as he had always wished he could ,makes me cry everytime.
mama mia! it was fantastic. Even in our pokey dingey we cinema the atmospere was electric really.
I smiled, laughed and cried all the way through it, I might even go again.
For Your Consideration (2006)
Christopher Guest (written by) &
Eugene Levy (written by)
Quotes: Lane Iverson: You can't throw the baby out with the bathwater because then all you have is a wet, critically injured baby.
Chuck Porter: You know what they say about blind prostitutes?
Chuck Porter: You have to hand it to them!
A more dryer and bitter sweet film from the team that made Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind. While something like Best in Show had a level of silliness, this was very satirical about the film industry and the people behind it from the producers and agents of the actors. Christopher Guest has moved away from the idea of it being strictly a documentary or mockumentary as it came to be known. Ricky Gervais style owes a lot to Christopher Guest and here he is in one of his films, being rather undermined by the other actors, even when they are improvising their scenes.
Catherine O'Hara and Harry Shearer play actors the tail end of their careers making a film that gets mentioned that either one of them may be in consideration for an Oscar; this leads the narrative to develop around their now boasted egos and vulnerabilities, that is rather heart breaking. Also, you have a very funny John Michael Higgins as Chuck Porter, a television presenter on an entertainment show that continually mocks the actors of the film called "Home for Purim," before and after the Oscar buzz! Not my favourite film by Christopher Guest and co but still better then nothing.
Archangel risin' on the moon
Just to save me from this tomb
I'll cry the tears of time all day

If you are looking for a rational well thought out movie with an intellectual plot then you should not have even read this far. If you are looking to laugh then catch this movie.

Watched Monster last night - Charlize Theron - about the infamous female serial killer
What a movie - totally gripping from start to end and very challenging, I found myself understanding why she did what she did and having much sympathy for her.
If you havent seen it - its well worth a view.
Morrissey: turning sickness into unpopular song (since 1983)
.... not bad. very funny.
I <3 James Franco in this movie.
Doc Hollywood, I have seen it many times. I like it.
Candyman (1992) starring Virginia Madsen
"Helen Lyle is a student who decides to write a thesis about local legends and myths. She visits a part of the town, where she learns about the legend of the Candyman, a one-armed man who appears when you say his name five times, in front of a mirror. Of course, Helen doesn't believe all this stuff, but the people of the area are really afraid. When she ignores their warnings and begins her investigation in the places that he is rumored to appear, a series of horrible murders begins. Could the legend be true? "
Could've been worse, I guess.
And I heard so many things I failed to understand at all
Just saw Boys Don't Cry last night. It's a truly heartbreaking story about the short life of female-to-male transsexual Brandon Teena, who was raped and murdered on December 31, 1993 in Humboldt, Nebraska, at the age of 21.
just saw mr. woodcock.
was exactly like mama's boy but mama's boy had a better soundtrack.
that goes to show how little you know...
