I have to say this kinda grew on me with repeated viewings, but the first time around my rating would have been even lower than yours. In the end: I consider it a good movie, but as distant from something monumental as a good movie can be.

Did it grow on you while you were sleeping?

;D We went to see it with school in 1999 or 2000 and I remember I almost fell asleep (which is more or less all I remember of it - I certainly had my eyes closed most of the time, so I really don't remember much.) And that was in a cinema. I guess if it were in TV, I'd really fall asleep...

He must have taken lessons as a baby-sitter, as his Badlands  amply proves. I wonder how these jacks ever manage to find financial backers.

Frost/Nixon - 8/10 - 2nd viewing. Held up surprisingly well to a rewatch, even after I had viewed the real interviews. Yeah it's more "dramatic" than the real thing, but it's based on a goddamned play - what would you expect? My only real complaints are the bland direction (how the hell did Howard get an Oscar nod?) and that it's perhaps overly sympathetic to Nixon.

No.

Half-Blood Prince

6/10

Didn't watch in the cinema, it was dubbed (which is a crime). Downloaded recently.

- Hermione still can't act.
- Slughorn should be fat and look like a walrus. He doesn't...
- Random Death Eater attack on Weasley house? WTF?
- Please, someone slap Bellatrix.
- Snape is a sex god.  :-* I fear the last film... poor thing.
- Draco kinda begins to look good.
- Someone. Kill. Lavender.
- Little Voldy is creepy.
- No Dursleys...  :'(
- Still don't like Death Eaters flying around with smoke effect.

It's perfect timing, large one...

Same reason why I usually don't go to see super-famous films in cinema...



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.

Caché (2005) - ?/10
Michael Haneke's version of Lost Highway. Not bad, not a masterpiece. Slow, alienating (in large part due to the sterile digital cinematography) and, for the most part, interesting. And boring.

It would be quite an achievement if the former.

I guess the former would be impossible.

Viimeinen keikka (1984) "The Last Gig" - 7/10
"Four aging friends, ex-members of a dance band that split decades ago, gather to play once more at the funeral of their band's fifth player. Old quarrels re-emerge, made worse by the different roles the men have since taken in their lives. One is a dentist, one a priest, and one is just a bitter old dance musician with an inclination to drinking and making obnoxious comments."

Flesh + Blood (1985) - http://www.hulu.com/watch/147145/flesh--blood Paul Verhoeven's first American feature, with a great cast (Jack Hawkins, Rutger Hauer, JJL, Bruno Kirby, and Brion James when he was thin and had hair!). Shame about the faux El Cid score.

You mean Jack Thompson. Aussie legend.

Fun movie to watch.

Right. The character he plays is called "Hawkwood." I got confused. :-[

Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King - 6-7/10 - I don't know if I'm just Hobbited out after a week of these movies, or if this film really is too long and convoluted, but it struggled to keep my attention through much of the run-time. Two Towers had its faults, but it did a fair job of balancing the various plot threads, even if some were left under-developed. Here, the film is about 75% elves/men fighting battle after CGI-laden battle, and 25% Frodo and Sam - and quite frankly, I got pretty tired of the battle scenes after awhile. Frodo and Sam are resaonably compelling but I find Aragorn and Co. pretty dull; supporting characters like Bernard Hill and Andy Serkis are much more interesting. And like many, I am both baffled and frustrated by the endless bait-and-switch "endings" in the last half-hour.

My verdict on the trilogy: worth watching, but not something I'm likely to come back to. Now, back to real films.
Just to be sure, have you read the book? (I'm thinking "no".)
