    Repo Men

    Beyond stupid, uber gross, and seems to have stolen the idea from Monty Python's, The Meaning of Life. At least, with Monty, it was funny.

    Charlie St. Cloud. I really loved it. I was surprised by how good Zach Efron's performance was. He had his goofy stare moments, but other than that I really thought the movie was great, and I bet the book is even better.

    The Education of Charlie Banks

    I've seen it before, and I have to say, I really liked it. It was directed by Fred Durst, of all people I think maybe it's his one and only movie?? So far at least. But wow, he surprised me. And it stars Jason Ritter (John Ritter's kid). Man--talk about spitting image. He looks just like his dad.

    And I think he's going to go places...he was really good in this film.

    The Boys From Brazil...I tried. I really, really tried, but dh and I just couldn't get into it. The acting felt over the top and I couldn't understand half of what they were saying and there was no option available for CC so I gave up after about thirty min. I have been told it's a GREAT movie, but just not my kind of flick.

    I saw Dinner for Schmucks yesterday. I liked it. It was stupid, funny and a little bit heartwarming.

    Shadows in the Palace. Korean historical/supernatural/horror. Complex, interesting, gory, mysterious. Excellent plotting. My only difficulty was cultural--I know there were several subtle plot points I missed because I don't know the culture.

    Life During Wartime. Yes, this is a sequel to Happiness (with an entirely different cast playing the characters!) but this is a kinder, gentler Todd Solondz, almost. There is none of the jaw-plunging shock humor of that classic movie, but there is none of the little redemption for the characters either. This is a sad, relentlessly down movie. And kudos to Ciaran Hinds as the parolee father (replacing Dylan Baker?), who had that same vibe Javier Bardem did in No Country For Old Men - the relentless stalking monster, but this time with a very tragic and quirky veneer. Very different from what I was expecting, and very well done. (Went on opening weekend worrying about watching it in a packed theater with rowdy college kids...and it was me and the usher, and one guy who wandered in late. le sigh)

    Yesterday, I watched The Black Hole. An interesting movie, though the ending was a little weird. But, I loved the robot characters--VINCENT and Bob.

    And, Friday, I decided to watch an old childhood favorite for the first time in 15 years--The Land Before Time. Very nostalgic.

    Capitalism: A Love Story by Michael Moore.

    Normally I like Michael Moore but this flick missed the mark. I just didn't find the movie very persuasive. Some things were bad - such as companies taking out insurance policies on sick employees and making the company the beneficiary -- but generally I just watched and thought "Is that it? That's no so bad."
    I kind of liked the Vulture realty company that specializes in bank foreclosures.
    I guess I'm a liberal who is also a capitalist at heart.

    I haven't seen that one for years. It's a fun film.

    Calendar Girls with Helen Mirren.
    (I'd seen this before, but it's an EXCELLENT movie)

    On A Clear Day http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0410400/
    Saving Grace with Craig Ferguson (so you know which movie, since there's a couple with this title)

    All three of these are very funny, and fabulous acting/story

    I went to a drive-in movie theater for the first time the other night, with my family. It was a double feature, so we saw Despicable Me and Toy Story 3 back-to-back. Both great movies. No movie has made me cry as hard as TS3 did though … and I'm almost 18 years old. Heh heh *blushes*
