What movies did you see today?

Watched Casino on the weekend.
I thought it was awesome. I can think of almost no criticisms of this movie. The plot was stellar and the acting was amazing (Stone, DeNiro, Pesci). My favorite part was definitely when Pesci was threatening the banker who lost some of his money.

Pesci was straight gangster in this and DeNiro was his usual awesome self.

9.5/10

going with another pesci/deniro classic...i watched goodfellas this weekend (again). if anyone hasn't seen this, this is the best gangster movie (outside of the godfather) which isn't quite as concerned with being a gangster as it is being the son of the boss. this is a great street rat story.

10/10

The movie is about the 4 gruesome Wonderland murders and the infamous Porn King John Holmes involvement in it and his drug addiction.

Can be graphic, but is definatly worth watchin if anyone has been interested in the famous Murders or John Holmes.

(6.5 out of 10)

I saw this the other night on HBO or whatever. Not a bad flick ... very intense. One thing I will add is that they do portray the 70's pretty realistically. Nice job.
And Val Kilmer is becoming one of my favorites. He nails the Holmes character pretty good.
8/10

I had a big Movie holiday weekend
1. Stars Wars revenge of the sith 8/10
I thought the transformation to Darth Vader wasn't that chopy or abrupt and it seemed to make sense. I also didn't think the dialogue was that bad and the movie had good flow.
2. War of the Worlds, again 8/10 pretty anit climactic ending but hey what do you want that's way the aliens crumble.
Great action scenes, would've like to have seen Cruise and Robbins go at it in the back room. And how that kid got to boston I'll never know.
3. Batman Begins, yeah 7/10 maybe I missed something but this movie didn't rock as hard as others hyped, that is to me. The beigining stuff was good, but it just seemed to drag.
4. Devils Rejects, jeez that chick is hot. but the movie not so. I was expecting a little more horror and less lame violence 7/10.

Just bougth Nightmare Before Christmas (inspired by the Christmas Movie Thread, so had to get it)...Burton is incredible. Have any of you been to Disneyland lately? During the holidays they change the Haunted Mansion into the Nightmare Before Christmas...it's insane!

Finally saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory...I'm a huge fan of the old one, so I didn't have high expectations, but I absolutely loved it! The Oompa Loompas were pretty annoying...they shouldn't have made Deep Roy dance...ugh! I love Johnny Depp and I thought he portrayed Wonka and his quirkiness perfectly. 9/10 for sure!

I think I was freaked out most by the Oompa Loompas because the actor that played them was the creepy Indian beggar guy with no legs on the X-Files...one of the more disturbing episodes...every time I see him I think of him on his little skateboard thing!

I just watched Crash. I havent looked through all the posts to see if anyone has talked about it. It is a very good movie about racial stereotypes and predjudices. Worth a watch for sure! ;-D

Just got back from watching Aeon Flux. Good flick. Better than I though it would be. It was actually more story intensive than I thought and the story was good. ;-D

has anyone seen Love Liza? Phillip Seymour Hoffman stars as a widower/gasoline huffer. His wife committed suicide and left him a note. So he takes off across the country huffing gas and not reading the suicide note. It' pretty bizarre. I haven't seen it from start to finish, but I have caught it on Cinemax a couple of times...it's a cool flick. worth checking out. I'm not going to rate it until I do get to sit down and watch it start to finish, but I do know that some of you would enjoy it.

Yes, I had the misfortune of watching that movie... and I'm a big fan of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. If you like movies where absolutely nothing happens, I highly recommend it.
