Re: The Last Three Movies You've Watched

The Social Network ( 2nd time ) :4.5stars: Loved it just as much as the first time. Had been my favorite movie of the year for all of the reasons anyone and everyone has gone on about (Sorkin, Eisenberg, Fincher, etc.), but it is no longer (I'll get to that). Amadeus :3.5stars: A resolution that I'...

Re: The Last Three Movies You've Watched

Witness for the Prosecution :4stars: It never really grabbed me the way other Wilder films have; or, at least, until the very end. In fact, it almost lost me completely, but the ending is so perfect, and so unexpected, that it won me over. Elf ( nth+1 time ) Again, with the family, on Christmas Eve...

Re: The Last Three Movies You've Watched

Not really sure where I left off, but I'll quickly go through December. Of course I'm just getting to it now. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2nd time :4stars: Still incredibly enjoyable. Very much bears the mark of humor of its directors (the creators of How I Met Your Mother ). Elf ( nth time ) ...

Re: The 250 Race

I'm on 200, but if I watch the ones I already own or have just prioritised on Lovefilm I'll be up to about 240. Anyone want a race for motivation? How you doing now? I've finally reached 246, still on pace to end some time in December as I complete my Resolution list (unless other films move up ont...

Re: New Year's Movie Resolution (2011)

I'll start with what I didn't finish this year, but it may change. I'd also like to keep myself to one other resolution - follow along with a Filmspotting marathon. I don't know if any of you listen to it, but it's by far my favorite podcast, and they always have really interesting marathons that I ...

Hannah and Her Sisters :4stars: I'm finding that I like Woody much more as a writer/director than I do as an actor (I suspect this is a common issue). It's funny, but more importantly, feels very true to life and organic. Michael Caine is obviously likable, even with an unsympathetic character, and...

For how well I was doing, I don't see myself finishing this at all. I've done two since August.

We just had a big one; Social Network has one of the worst trailers going. :green: I can see how the trailer is annoying and nonstandard, and I'm not saying it's great, but I'll at least backlash the backlash and say that I didn't think the trailer was that bad. Are we talking about the 'Creep' tra...

186. I'd love to get to 200 by the end of the year, but I'm getting down to only ones I've completely resisted. I'm sure I'm wrong about most of them, but now, more than ever, I want to watch Braveheart last (or never).
