Finally saw Avatar, in 3D. Pocahontas in space, with the 3D as a gimmick. Way too long, too. 3/10

tangled - 10/10. some of these "cartoons" are the best movies i have seen this year.

fighter - 7/10. while marky mark plays his typical role, christen bale is outstanding.

knight & day - 5/10. after a few drinks i started to enjoy it.

later.

Robin Hood w/Russell Crowe - seemed ok (6/10?) but I started it too late and end up choosing sleep over watching it til the conclusion. Anybody see it that can tell me whether it's worth see til the end?

machete-the newest robert rodriguez vehicle. simply. ridiculous.
but i loved it. as with all rodriguez stuff, heavy on
impossible/improbable/impractible violence; skimpy on plot and clothing in
all the right places. 8.5.

Broken Flowers

I liked the atmosphere, the characters, the music, but I felt it needed more substance.

7.5/10

Just saw The Girl Who kicked the Hornet's Nest.
I give it a 9. I really like it, rate it up there with the first, Girl with the Dragon Tatoo after a drop off with the second, The Girl Who Played With Fire. I'm a big David Fincher fan but I don't know how he's going to top this excellent Swedish series.

Agreed. Same character. I didn't mind it so much, though, but I wish there was just more. I understand the movie's supposed to be minimalist, but there wasn't much resolve or anything.

Next movie's gonna be The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Still haven't seen it, but I'll probably watch it tomorrow.

just watched:

'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'

lovely gripping film, Lisbeth Salander is a very hot character in it.

David Fincher has his work cut for him doing the Hollywood remake

8/10

A Night At The Opera. 8/10. I always liked this one a little less than A Day At The Races and Duck Soup, but it's hard to find any fault with it.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha... I'm going to have to look for that one.

Green Hornet for us last night. Fun if you don't mind Seth Rogen really stretching his acting chops and playing Seth Rogen-in-a-mask. Whatshisname, the guy who played Col Hans Lada in Inglorious Basterds, was pretty funny as the bad guy. 7/10.

I watched Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part I movie last night. The movie is really incredible and marvelous. All characters of the movie done a superb job. But the bad thing is its split into two parts and i have so many suspense in its second part.
I rate it 9/10
