I recommend watching the Korean movie My Sassy Girl! Definitely one of the more popular Korean movies.

I'd recommend "We Need to Talk About Kevin". Tilda Swinton is amazing in it and her son's character gave me chills.

Yeah, that was a good flick.

I watched Snowtown last night (known in the US as The Snowtown Murders) and it was equal parts riveting and disturbing. Amazing central performance for the guy playing John Bunting (Daniel Henshall, I think) but some of what was going on was slightly confusing (I had to read up on the film afterward just to clarify the details of one or two chracters), though that may be down to some background noise distracting me when I was trying to watch it.

Anyhoo, We Need to Talk ABout Kevin and Snowtown could make for a rather devastating feel-bad double-bill of bleak brutality, if you're into that sort of thing.

With the NHL payoffs around the corner, and hoping for a Boston Bruins repeat, I watched Slapshot last night. It's still a hockey classic!

If you're into comedies or otherwise DO NOT make the mistake of watching "the sitter" with Jonah Hill.
Very disappointing. Excited for 21 Jump Street though, and the new Will Ferrel film.

Just watched Avengers last weekend and it was AWESOME!
You'll love the action sequences, esp. if you're a comic-book fan like I am.
Joss Whedon (Buffy/Angel) is the best director for comic-book based movies! (And Nolan too on TDK).

I saw hunger games and avengers and I think avengers was better. The hunger games had one scene that was especially sad and well done but Avengers was more entertaining in terms of extremes. There was a bit of a lull between a quarter and a half through it but it was well scripted and I liked the juggling of characters. Oh! Also, the weaves between characters in the action shots (one take weaves) were reaallyy cool. It made it really seem like a complex battle. My last note is that Avengers is super American Action film. Everything is over the top and flashy (and big battle in NYC). I really liked that.

I watched the Korean movie Quick recently.  (퀵)

I recommend it if you like action comedies.  It was well done.

I'm slowly and inconsistently making my way through imdb.com's top 250 movies. I haven't watched too many lately, since I've been busy with the NHL playoffs, but I watched "Kind Hearts and Coronets" (1949) last night--it was pretty funny--and "Network" (1976) the other day, which I enjoyed a lot.

For film buffs who miss netflix... you may want to check out mubi.com. You can stream a bunch of obscure films on there, some are free, some you can pay to stream once, or you can get a monthly subscription for 5.99/month. I saw a really cool doc on there the other night called 'Young Yakuza'. Check it out.

The Day of the Jackal (1973)

This was a really intense movie about an assassination attempt on Charles De Gaulle.  Excellent acting and cinematography.


IMDB review:
Quote
One of the finest thrillers ever made, 15 May 2001

Author: dgriffiths from Leicester, England
The opening five minutes of the film are a marvel. Almost completely devoid of dialogue the scenes portray visually more story than most modern thrillers can fit into two hours. This is about the best book-to-film conversion I've ever seen. The cuts, where they are made, are logical and some locations are combined. From Forsyth's first, and probably best book (written in less than 5 weeks) this film contains nothing that does not drive the story forward. The character of the Jackal is brilliantly finely drawn. He doesn't contain any of the cliches that you would expect to see in a film written in the last twenty years (he doesn't display mental instability, or have flashbacks to some event in his past). He never tries to justify his pernicious occupation to anyone yet, strangely, doesn't come across as an evil man. Simply as a professional doing his job. The French police inspector is wonderfully underplayed and is as far away from the he-breaks-the-rules-but-he-gets-the-job-done cliche as you can possibly imagine. He is first seen attending to his pigeons and upon being told he is being put on the case simply says "Oh God..."....

Zimmemann's direction is great and the scenes are beautifully photographed - particularly in Paris.

This is an all-time great film. Definitely in my top ten. I suppose I must put something in negative so it makes for a balanced review so errr.... I think the French minister is wearing a very bad wig. Beyond that -marvelous.

Like other people said... AVENGERS!! I saw last week. Now I am going back and watching all of the Avengers movies ie. Iron Man (1&2), Captain America, Thor and The Hulk. I have seen them all before but wanted to watch them again. I also realized I missed things in the movies, like Hawkeye being in Thor! If you haven't seen them, I suggest watching all of these movies and then seeing The Avengers!

I saw a really awesome Korean movie called Chaser. I think the Korean title is Chukyokja or something like that. Best movie I've seen in a while.

Recently saw 'Salt' which was a nice surprise as I expected it to be very poor.  Also "The Grey' which was okay.  Both kinda b-movies that suprised me by being better than I'd imagined they would.

'Shanghai Kiss' was a nice Asian take on the 'neurotic, post modern youth experience.'  Kind of 2000's youth does Woody Allen with Asian flavour.'

Saw Allen's 'Shadows and Fog' the other week, which was a joy.

Next on the list is 'The Skin I live in.'
