Ya know...give it a whirl. You might have a different take on it, or I could just be really harsh. Or maybe I'd have liked it better if I hadn't seen the remake already.

As it is, I just watched it on my instant Netflix queue too, and I'm kinda glad I didn't have to wait for it in the mail.

Finally got around to watching Inception two days ago.

Mind = Blown.

I can't think of anything bad to say about it. I actually felt like my eyes were glued to the screen for its duration, and I can still hear those Horns blaring in my head every time there's a quiet moment.

Oh dear...so disappointing. I can watch some bad horror movies, but this was just terrible. The blood scenes looked like a 5 year old sprayed the actors with red finger paint...and speaking of the actors, could they have been any worse? The concept was good, but geez it was so boring to watch. I loved all the "..of the Dead" movies, and would still love to check out more Romero, but I can't see myself watching this one again. Dare I say, the remake with Timothy Olyphant made for a much better viewing.
BLASPHEMER!!!!!!

i kid...although i found it to be silly and fun to watch....it is probably one of his worst films...and the remake was actually better

speaking of Blasphemers and Romero....according to IMDB he is remaking the Dario Argento classic Profondo Rosso(Deep Red)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WTF!

Saw Good Will Hunting again last night. Still one of my favorite scenes of all time in that flick. Love the bar scene where the wealthy educated Harvard yuppie was silenced from his rant. Of what he was passing off or deeming intelligent. Beat from the mental and physical aspect of the situation. Left him no choice but to tuck his tail and walk away. Theres something to be said for companions like that in life. As Matt Damon whispers "if you got a problem we can always step outside".

Whilst there is some good dialogue here and there and a couple of really great scenes, it is yet another self indulgent bunch of set pieces cobbled together with his usual chapter headings and on screen graphics.

I couldn't really care for any of the characters apart from the cinema owner and it was far too long (as usual).

Before I get the usual Tarantino fanboys on my back daring to criticise one of his films (8.5 on IMDB wtf?), I watch every single film without any prejudice and just say what I think and I think it's yet another forgettable film the walking chin has dealt out since Kill Bill vol 1 (oh and well done Tarantino for getting in your foot fetish shot and being so post modern as to put a David Bowie track in a film set in the 40's yes I know it's a homage- we get it. You love movies, now write and direct something with substance like your first two movies FFS).

Christoph Waltz was damn good in it though. Sinister and comedic.

^ ...is basically what I thought of it. While it had two of the best scenes I've ever seen on film in it (namely the opening and that one in the bar), as a unit the whole film falls short for me.



It's big, it's dumb, it's cheesy as hell, it's awesome. Some really nasty gore in it, and it's cool to finally see Elizabeth Shue in another movie.

127 Hours.

Absolutely fantastic, James Franco is marvellous, definitely Oscar worthy.

Classic in your face Matt Damon. "You like apples"?...That line never ceases to bring a laugh either.
