All I know is, I appreciate the movie much more knowing all of what has been talked about here.

Just watched An Honest Liar (the James Randi film).

It was surprisingly moving and powerful.

And waiting through the credits was so worth it for the phrase, "No spoons were harmed in the making of this film."

Randomly picked the movie "Remember" from my Amazon Prime account. Damn. Christopher Plummer at 86 is still an absolute powerhouse actor. I've always been a huge fan of him and this movie only adds to that.

Do yourself a favor and check out this flick. Very intense plot and the suspense keeps building until an ending that shocked the **** out of me. And Plummer nailed the nuances of emotions involved.

Don't look into it prior to watching. Definitely a movie that would be ruined by a couple of spoilers.

Traffic. Watch every couple of years or so. Definitely in my top 20 of all time. Such a brilliant and hard hitting movie on every level. And what a cast.

Benicio del Toro, Michael Douglas, Luis Guzman, Amy Irving, Erika Christensen, Topher Grace, James Brolin, Albert Finney, Steven Bauer, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Dennis Quaid, Don Cheadle, Miguel Ferrer, Benjamin Bratt, Viola Davis, Salma Hayek, as well as a bunch of real politicians making cameos.

del Torro deserved every ounce of that Oscar.

Over the past 2 nights: Eastern Promises and A History of Violence. A Vitto Mortensen, David Cronenberg double header. If you haven't seen both of these do yourself a favor.
