The Illusionist this was OK, it was an entertaining watch, but i was expecting more from it. Jessica Beil could have been hotter in it, and i really hate Paul Giamatti

7/10

Talledega Nights just wasnt that funny, i think my favorite part was watching the Walker and Texas Ranger out-takes. doesnt hold a candle to Anchor-man

5/10

Thank You For Smoking billed as a comedy starring Aaron Eckert as a tobacco lobbyist, pretty entertaining, especially if you like watching BS artists in action, even if they have all their lines written for them...it made me want a cigarette

7.5/10

Pretty much agree with you especially on Talladega Nights. I loved Anchorman and Talladega nights just wasn't that funny.

The Illusionist would have been better if the "illusions" he was doing were even remotely possible. They don't have holograms like that with today's technology much less 100 years ago. Meh!

got a couple in me...

Finally got around to seeing Beerfest- I give it 8/10. Completely over the top and funny stuff. Being a beer drinker myself probably helped me enjoy this flick more. More goodness from Broken Lizard.

also saw Smokin' Aces today at the theater. I give it a solid 8.5/10. Good cast and over-the-top characters. Funny, stylish, action packed- me likes ;-D ... also Jason Bateman's cameo was hilarious :-)

Watched The Departed on the plane ride back from Paris. Definitely one of the best movies of the year. How they got that type of a cast is beyond me, but there is not a bad actor to be seen in that movie. Matt Damon is good although his accent was annoying at times, Leo DiCaprio is excellent, Mark Wahlberg was amazingly over the top, and Jack Nicholson seemed like he could be a real life mob boss. Hell, even "Arec Baldwin" did a great job. :-b The producers did a great job of taking a very simple plot line and making it into a phenomenal movie. ;-D

9.5 out of 10

I saw The Departed today too. I thought it was really good. Pretty interesting plot and phenominal acting.

I'll give it an 8.5/10 ;-D

I really like Talladega Nights. All the deleted scenes with the commercials and PSAs are great

I was interested in seeing this because of the big named cast, but I kinda wanted to see the Hong Kong version first, "Infernal Affairs." I want to know if the Hollywood version lived up to the original or if they botched it up by making it American.

One of my gripes about Hollywood is when they take a foreign movie that is successful because of how it fits within that culture and remakes a Hollywood version that eliminates all that. The biggest culprits are Hollywood remakes of Asian films. A lot the quirks of Asian culture have no real counterpart in the West, so a remake loses a lot of it's appeal to me. There's also the trend of bad remakes in general though, lol.

Pan's Labryinth i was expecting it to be more fantasyish, but this was really really good. really kept me captivated and i'm sure some film nerds can break down all kinds of hidden meanings and metaphors...also has some nice violence.

also, unlike regular old Labyrinth, it does not contain David Bowie in a spandex jumpsuit...no Jennifer Connely either though

9/10

A Scanner Darkly

A Phillip K Dick story filmed with Rotoscoping technology, stars Keanu Reeves who amazingly does not say "whoa" (maybe he did and i'm so used to it) as an undercover cop hooked on "Substance D" Robert Downey Jr is really good in it, and it has Winona Ryder's cartoon boobs...and a pretty good ending. i was expecting more though

7/10
