I watched the new Bad News Bears with Billy Bob. Eh... Billy Bob was good... but I dunno. I just didn't dig it.

40 Year Old Virgin was still funny.

...and Goldeneye is pretty darn cool too. My buddies and me dug out the 'ol N64 and were playing Bond... thought I should dig out the movie. Because I'm just that crazy, yo.

Saw The Life Of David Gale with Kate Winslet and Kevin Spacey. What a trip of a film. It's a very thought-provoking film with quite a twist. I'm always enamoured with Winslet and Spacey as actors at the top of their trade and both are very solid in Gale. The film has a very strong message about capital punishment and it's a bit political, but well worth the rental.

I totally agree. It had a very extriuging storyline that gripped you and took you along for the whole movie. I definately recommend it ;-D

Saw Primer

This movie is crazy and very confusing. Won the Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize winner in 2004. Only 77 minutes, but worth it. Amazingly, this movie cost $7,000 to make. It's unbelievable that I just watched War of the Worlds and The Island. I liked Primer MUCH MUCH better than these two movies and these are the budgets:

The Island: $122 Million
War of the Worlds: $132 Million
Primer: $7,000

It is about time travel, but it's done very well and it's very believable. The beginning of the movie is very technical, but it's not really that important that you understand all their jargon. Even though time travel is a main part of the plot, the movie is really about relationships and trust. I wouldn't even call it a sci-fi movie. If you like movies that make you think and still leave you confused at the end, you'll like this movie.

I'd give it a 8.5/10.

i saw this a few months ago, and i like to think of myself as a pretty smart guy, and even after reading explanations on various message boards i'm still confused on what happened. apparantly someone made up a very detailed timeline of what happened but i didnt read it.

i wasnt thrilled with it, but did appreciate it and i think it's something that with a second viewing i'd like even more. gets a 10 for origonality though

I've looked at a few timelines and some of them are insane. I found one that I think is pretty good. PM me if you want the link.

It's definitely a movie that you have to watch again. I thought the commentary tracks should have explained the plot a little better...I'm sure 98%+ of the viewers will not get the movie on the first viewing. I sure didn't.
