Payback (The Director's Cut) - Crime thriller in which Mel Gibson comes back for revenge after he's betrayed and left for dead by his wife and partner in a heist,Gibson eventually goes up against the local crime syndicate, dirty cops, and a squirmy middleman. If you've seen the version shown in theaters than this will be like watching an entirely different movie. The theatric version is comedic and more rapid-fire while this version is serious, slow-paced, and grim. They're both good movies, but I like the theatric version just a little better than this one.

A hit man gets himself injected with what everyone in the movie calls "the Chinese shit," and he's got to keep his adrenaline up or he dies — which he figures he'll do anyway. So he goes and gets some cocaine and Red Bull and public sex with his girlfriend to help him stay awake long enough to exact revenge on the gangsters who did it to him.
Donnie Brasco- decided to check this film out for two reasons, Al Pacino and Johnny Depp. Both are great actors, so i expected good things from this movie. The film is about an undercover cop who goes by the name of Donnie Brasco who hangs around with mob men to get more information on what goes on with them. I think Johnny Depp does brilliant undercover, because he sounds pretty damn convincing playign a mobman. My favorite part of the film has to be when Mr. Moto gets his ass kicked because he told Depp to take his shows off. That whole scene was pretty damn good. But really the film is worth a watch for sure, if you like Al Pacino and his work, this film should be no different.
I like it until ended so abruptly. I believe the hype and it just couldnt live up but it was a decent film at best. Its about a monster that attacks. New York City on the night of the main characters going away party. it follows five friends around filmed in 1st person. IMO this film had potential but it didnt' really live up to it.
Another thing....anybody realize when there is a monster it attacks NY! Godzialla...yep, cloverfield....yep, what is it with people destroying my state....not a fan here!

A Bronx Tale- Such a good movie, but sad ending. A story about how a boy lives by the leader of a mafia becomes freinds with the man after not rating him out for a murder, and his father disaproves and trys to lure him away from the mafia.
Great science-fiction film. Will Smith is a wonderful actor. My favorite actor of all time. The plot was intriguing, the acting was solid, the delivery was there, and the effort was obvious. The ending was a bit rushed though. Its the only flaw in the movie.
Location: highway jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive

^^ glad someone else enjoyed Cloverfield as much as I did.
Atonement- a film about a man who is sent to prison, because of an insinuation from a little 13 year old writer. This film stars Keira Knightley and James McAvoy. I guess it started off pretty slow for the first twenty minutes or so, but it picked up during the dinner scene. I think both put on a great performance. While the film is good, I would not call it the best of 2007, don't know how this one was considered best drama over some of the other choices. But even so, it is still a good film thats worth a look.
