Princess Mononoke for a Japan earthquake fundraiser thing. It's the only Miyazaki film I hadn't seen and I really loved it! Really, really.

Eastern Promises and Fair Game. Evidently the theme is thrillers starring Naomi Watts.

Dark House. Stupid. But It starred Jeffrey Combs, so it was to be expected.

Tron Legacy. Lots of fun right up until the 1-hour mark, and then it tanked. Very disappointed.

Black Swan, the only Aronofsky movie that is better in my opinion is Requiem For A Dream.

Vampyr, which I have no wish to describe because words fail me for how entertaining it is while having thrown plot out the window. It kind of reminds me of Smilla's Sense of Snow in this regard.

Source Code--liked it till the end, which I thought too feelgood given what had gone on before.

Insidious--think Poltergeist meets Pan's Labyrinth

Your Highness--very funny, can't see the critics' problem here

Hanna--beautifully shot, suspenseful. Looks like an early Luc Besson film. Ronan should become a star.

Love and Other Drugs

4/5 stars

Yes, heard about the sex/nudity beforehand, but it turned out pretty good. I understand the inclusion of the sex/nudity, but I still think they could have done without. It turns out to be a good movie with a decent plot. I don't think I've seen Anne Hathaway in anything yet, because I'm not the type of guy to watch Princess Diaries or whatever it is. She played a good pissed off sufferer of Parkinson's Disease.

Extreme Measures. I think that was the title. The one with Harrison Ford and Brandon Fraser, about a mans fight to save his two children from a horrible disease. It was much better than I expected.
