Bar Requiem For a Dream, I love pretty much love anything Aronofsky, so it could very well be something pretty spectacular.

I'll tell you what I'm looking forward to most, and that's the prequel about Xavier and Magneto that's being penned in for this year - plot-wise it sounds fairly interesting anyway. I'll probably be massively disappointed but hey - at least Marvel will make a bit of money off me eh.

I loved Toy Story 3 as well btw

i was just reading about the prequel.....and i have to agree....the two characters are just awesome....so i think they would honestly have to go out of their way to make it bad

I went on a good Terry Gilliam kick this week...

My favorite, and probably for my love of great dystopian films, was Brazil



followed by Adventures of Baron Munchausen (did they know how to do some sets back in '88 and Robin Williams was a pleasant surprise)



and Life of Brian, my favorite Monty Python related work...



Skipped over the chance to revisit Fear and Loathing with my flatmate, because I already am too familiar with it.

I intend to watch Dr. Parnassus next. I read about how they dealt with Ledger's death by working in three other actors and thought that was brilliant so... gonna give it a go, even if it was slightly panned.

Every film buff should see Brazil. I call that top notch film-making on all levels, 100/100

I guess I'll just say, Munchausen, 88/100 and Life of Brian 81/100...

Don't think of 12 Monkeys as a Bruce Willis movie though, think of it as a Terry Gilliam movie. You opinion of Gilliam is probably a much more accurate barometer of how much you'd enjoy the movie than your opinion of Bruce Willis is. Also worth noting is that it was written by the same couple who wrote Unforgiven and Blade Runner.
I had seen Tore's quote (I know, from last summer!) about Gilliam's 12 Monkeys... and while I haven't seen it in a few years... I must say it is a very well directed film. I find it very enjoyable to watch again and again (over time). One thing I found recently was that it was based on an older film, La Jetee. I was going to try to find that, as they were saying they liked it more...

The Face Of Another

Adapted from the novel of the same name from one of my favourite writers (Kobo Abe), I loved nearly every minute of it. Although reading the book helped keep a lot of disjointed scenes in focus, the story was jsut as engaging, whilst the cinematography really brought out another level in the distorted reality of men. Loved the use of mirrors and glass, not noticing their use until a particularly jarring object or person interacts with them, and the overall surrealist nature in a movie trying to be as 'factual' as possible (ie the director isn't trying to show anything abstract). This falls in line with Abe's writing style, which doesn't waste words and follows a very scientific vein of thought.

Recommended by it's lonesome or with the book.

Probably jumps right into my top 10

Dance Flick


I went into this movie with low expectations and I was busting out laughing throughout. I think it's because I love dance movies in general so it was funny to see them made fun of. It didn't hurt that Shoshana Bush was a total hottie. I think this spoof flick was much better because it was more related to the wayans brothers than the other new spoof movies that say "two of the writers from Scary Movie"

^those two writers are Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. Two of the worst filmmakers of all time. I live for bad movies, but bad comedies? Their work is painfully stupid.
