Miyazaki is just different gear. He's so imaginative. I'm not overly familiar with Japanese cinema, but the first film of his I watched (Princess Mononoke), I was utterly amazed by how surreal and odd it was, but at the same time, how thought-provoking, adult and spiritual a lot of the issues were. Spirited Away still remains my favourite. I found Howl too complicated, even if it was still as beautiful as ever.

District 9- a film about aliens named Prawns, who are trapped here on Earth, and the battles that ensue between Humans and Prawns. Starring Sharlto Copley, William Allen Young, and Vanessa Haywood. I really can't describe the plot without giving away major elements of the film. This was truly a marvelous film. Very unique from anything I have seen before, and filmed in such a effective manner. I didn't know much about the plot heading in, and I think I enjoyed it more due to not knowing what to expect. I hope this film becomes a financial success, because its brilliance is worth crediting.

8.5/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Last movie I saw was the The Orphanage (Spanish). I thought it was going to be really scary since many sites said it was a great horror movie, but it was more creepy if anything. About a mother and her lost son. There are no cheap scares in the movie. I felt kinda weirded out about the fact that I was watching a horror movie and wasn't that scared. Ending was beautiful though. (imo) I liked the atmosphere maintained throughout the movie. Psychologically unnerving.

8/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Inglourious Basterds

This was a enjoyable yet shocking film that i though was great and was allot better after QT last disaster film Death Proof. It would only be my 5th favourite of his though as i liked Pulp fiction, Reservoir Dogs and the 2 Kill Bills better, but i still think its brilliant film (and should be in the IMDB top 250 btw)

9/10

I always wondered why nobody did it before me. I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows. You think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself. At some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero.

Night at the Museum.

Story- a down on his luck guy gets a job as a overnight security guard at the Museum of Natural History.

Acting- meh

Overall- this movie was alright, i thought it would be funnier then it was. I laughed a few times but that was it. 7/10.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

At home the last movie I watched was "Fast Times at Ridgemont High". I'm almost for sure 99% of you all have seen that. So I know I don't really have to review that one.

As for going out to the theater it was The Hangover. That was about 2 or so weeks after it came out. I actually wasn't sure what I was going to think about it on the way there. I heard it was hilarious. So I gave it a shot. The movie was about 4 guys who go to Las Vegas for a bachelor party. When they wake up the next morning they forget they left the guy (Doug) who is getting married on the roof. So the three guys so on an adventure through out Vegas. I enjoyed it, and can't wait for it come out on DVD. 9/10

The Time Traveler's Wife- a film about a man who randomly travels through time, and how he tries to build a relationship with a girl he loves. Starring Eric Bana (The Other Boleyn Girl), Rachael McAdams (State of Play), and Ron Livingston (Office Space). This film made for a decent way to kill time. The score for the film was good, and it had its enjoyable moments. Not too big of a fan of Bana, but he did well in this film. Probably not something I would go out of my way to see, but it makes for a good date film.

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard- a film about a radical group of sales people that try to get a falling car sales company back up. Starring Jeremy Piven (RocknRolla), Ving Rhames (I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry), and David Koechner (Get Smart). The film is sort of absurd in terms of comedy, but I did really enjoy Piven's performance in it and think he made the film worthwhile. It has its moments, and has its downs but I am pretty surprised that I enjoyed it more than I thought that I would. I think fans of Piven would enjoy this.

6.5/10

Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw

Inglourious Basterds- a film about a group of "Basterds" and a theater owner who plot revenge on Nazi's. Starring Brad Pitt (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Christoph Waltz, and Diane Kruger (National Treasure: Book of Secrets). Big fan of Tarentino films, and this one was classic Tarentino. A very well written script, and remarkable acting especially in the case of Christoph Waltz. The film is in other languages for the most part, but it is still very enjoyable. Great way to close off the summer of films. Tarentino fans definitely would enjoy his latest work.

8.5/10
