Changeling - yeah, worth a watch, Angelina Jolie was decent, was not THAT great.
The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas - ( 2008 ) you must see this! This was THAT great!
Saw Snakes On A Plane yesterday. Basically, if you've heard anything about it, you probably know what you're in for. There's the obligatory decompression scene, the obligatory something-has-happened-to-the-pilot scene, the obligatory passenger-freaking-out-and-attacking-other-passengers scene, and plenty of snake-related violence. And lots of Samuel L. Jackson, of course. Not saying it's a terrible movie or anything, but you can probably tell beforehand whether or not you'll like it.
Watched "The Wrestler", liked it loads.
Also "JCVD", strange but very good. "Help! , Jean Claude Van Damme is robbing the post office..!"
The opening steadicam shot is genius. His entire career until now in 4 minutes.
Also, watch "In Bruges" because it's awesome. (Belgian tangent)

What's eating Gilbert's grape.
an oldie. Just felt like watching it again =)
Just saw Gandhi on cinemax the other night. Instantly became one of my favorite movies
Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die
They Live--Between this and The Thing, John Carpenter was a badass back in the 80's.
Hell, this may go with Predator, Aliens, and Robocop in my secret list of genuinely good 80's action.
checked out some submarine movies:
Crimson Tide, Hunt for Red October, K-19: Widowmaker.
I liked them best in this order. Denzel and Gene Hackman rule!
Still need to rewatch Das Boot.
Mirrors: meh, this was '24 - the horror version'. I think Kiefer Sutherland is typecast as Jack Bauer forever now... :/ "Damnit!"
Dead Man Walking: awesome film about a convict on deathrow. Directed by Tim Robbins, yay! And the Oscar for the female lead was well deserved! Although Sean Penn could equally have won it. Powerful performances all throughout!
Taken: damn, Liam Neeson is just badass! This is one of the better Hollywood action movies. ;P
Actually pretty hilarious. In a good way.
THE FALL - This is a fantastic movie! PURE ART, no CGI, real locations, such beautiful scenes! Absolute must watch
Dr. Who, all new seasons and specials
Loved them all. Dr. Who has some amazing shit in it, like the eternal highway (though some weaker episodes too), Torchwood was really engaging, a nice cross between Buffy and X Files. I was surprised that I enjoyed True Blood so much. And I kicked my ass for missing Hellboy 2 on the big screen.
the wrestler- one of my new favorites movies. such a great character with a great story. RAM JAM RAM JAM
Waltz with Bashir - Wonderfuly animated and very nicely drawn movie, cool soundtrack, and it's a true story also, a documentary actually.
Role Models- One of the better comedies I've seen in recent years. Suprisingly funny.
Synedoche, New York-Good stuff, but what the hell is going on? I think it needs some repeat viewings in order for me to get it.
Milk-Very well-made. Easily the best "mainstream" film Gus van Sant has ever done. I'm still not entirely sure if Sean Penn deserved best actor for it, but he was very good in the movie.
Moral Orel-Season 3:
It's definitely the most actually adult show on Adult Swim. Probably the sharpest contrast I've seen in a TV show. Seasons 1-2 of MO pretty much run on one joke about fundamentalist Christians. Though they do it very well.
But Season 3 is surprisingly very emotionally complex. It's like they're two different shows at some times.
Futurama: The Wild Green Yonder:
Best of the four Futurama movies.
I'm about to watch Twilight, and it looks absolutely terrible.
I saw most of Twilight.
It was probably even worse than I ever imagined.
It totally ruined an awesome Muse song for me.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - pretty slow start that almost put me off, but loved it in the end. Highly recommended.
the sole intention is learning to fly
I saw Gran Torino the other day and thought what a brilliant movie it was.
And then I watched Seven Pounds and the former got pwned.
Well, of course both of these are absolutely recommended (no, must-see!)!
