The Body Snatcher (1945) - 7.5/10
At first it appears to be an average scary movie but it gets better and better. Some totally great scenes. Is it just me or are Robert Wise's movies always really really dark?

Queen Margot (1994) - 8/10

Quite good. Intrigue, sex and lots of blood, plus beautiful Isabelle Adjani and a fearsome old Virna Lisi as Catherine de' Medici. Has the same atmosphere as The Accursed Kings books.


The Wild Bunch - rewatched again... 10/10

Still damn perfect.

The Sound of Music is certainly the darkest film I've ever seen.

That HAD to be dark. I agree with the rating, though I saw the movie in the '80's.

Tuco, get your shit together. And take your pills.

You were right: those white ones are bloody awesome!

The Hurt Locker - 8/10 - Thin characterization and lack of originality aside, it's a solid enough film with an interesting look at modern warfare. Despite complaints from certain corners, the shaky cam isn't particularly egregious here and arguably serves the material. The "war is a drug" thing might be better served in a more conventional war film, but it's carried off well-enough here, and the movie does a great job of showing the tense, personal nature of counterinsurgency, even if it's not the main focus of the film. The action scenes are excrutiatingly tense, particularly the stand-off at the UN headquarters. A very good film, infinitely better than Avatar and the other Best Picture nominees I've seen.

The Insider - 9/10 - An excellent, perfectly-plotted, character-rich, moody thriller - easily Michael Mann's best work. One of the best casts in recent memory; Crowe gives his best performance, Pacino is good Pacino, and Christopher Plummer shines. No real complaints.

The Red Shoes (1947) - 10/10. My first time to see it on the big screen, and in its restored color, which is incandescent. This is almost a perfect film except for two things, the overly-contrived tragedy at the end, and Anton Walbrook's final speech which, in a film with many over-the-top performances, is positively stratospheric. But I imagine that's what Powell wanted: he never liked subtle acting.

Grin OK, I admit that my judgement was hasty and based only on The Curse of the Cat People, The Body Snatcher, Blood on the Moon and The Set-Up.

Lord of War (2005)
My earlier rating of this on IMDb seems to be 6/10. That's about right. This movies looks hip and tries to be political but in the end it's rather empty. Generates some laughs, though.

Fata Morgana (2004) - 6.5/10
A documentary about the Chukchi people who live by the Bering sea.

Doesn't sound as interesting as the Herzog film by the same name. Btw, did you take points off for them having ripped off the title?

I became aware of the Herzog film only after writing that. Could be an homage. The director (or one of them) mentioned in a recent interview that he admires especially Herzog's early works.

Täällä Pohjantähden alla (2009) "Under the North Star" - 7.5/10
First part of a two part epic. Spans 188?-1918, most importantly depicting the Civil War of 1918 and the things that led to it. Surprisingly good...

The Informant! (2009) 8/10. In the 1990s, the FBI gets an executive at Archer Midland Daniels to roll over on his colleagues. Trouble is, how can they use anything supplied by a congenital liar with a hidden agenda? Matt Damon plays the liar with just enough brio to sell the part. The fun, of course, is watching him twisting every which way to avoid getting caught out. Based on real-life events, but with better colors. Comes complete with a nice feel-good score by Marvin Hamlisch!
Just watched this again, now on DVD. Noticed more of the cameos this time: both Smothers brothers are in it, and the main character's parents are played by Frank Welker and Candy Clark!
