Finished the entirety of Harry Potter. Got surprisingly dark later on, which I kind of liked.

Watched Lost in Translation and I don't get all the praise about it. Well I think I was on the wrong mindset since I expected something more 'poppy' or mainstream but it's obviously the laid back purely emotional arty film so I'll give it another chance on another day.

HP was pretty good though the final war was kind of lame, there should have been more fighting and stuff.

Watched Blade Runner for the first time, dont know why all these years i put it off... I absolutely love that rustic futuristic style it has to it... loved that look in these older movies.

An American Werewofl in London. You'd think with a title like that it would be cmedy but it's an actual horror movie. I was disappointed when I realized it but still it's pretty good movie.

You don't think 'An American Werewolf in London' is a comedy film!?!

It's not. Isn't it? I mean there are funny moments but it kinda takes the horror aspect of itself seriously. I'm not sure, but it's not a complete gag film which I was expecting it to be because of the title.

Anyway just watched A Fish Called Wanda. Great heist film, it's also comedy but the plot is interesting. Reminds me a bit of Matchstick men and other con artists, etc.. films.

Also PI by Darren Aronofsky. same director of Requiem of a Dream and Black Swan. Great music and cinematography.

I'm wanting to watchLove Exposure but it's over 3 hours long so I can't bring myself to do it yer. Probably just gonna watch Reservoir dogs again or The Hangover.

I agree. Very quotable too. I can't believe there's no remake, I think there's a potential for it.

EDIT:
What's with Citizen Kane. I've been hearing about it in the net since forever then I got the chance to watch it but I'm not sure what it should be. Documentary? Is this an American culture something movie, cause I can't relate to it while watching the first few minutes and just had to stop it. I think I gotta adjust my mindset first before getting to it again.

Quentin Tarantino has been planning on remaking it.  He needs to not do this.

Citizen Kane is one of my favourite movies, and it's still very relevent today, it is def worth a full watch through.

Went to the cinema last week to see The Artist. Suprisingly, for an oscar winner, it was actually a good film! Using one man's situation as a metaphor for old media being replaced by the new, and how it can affect those left behind. Also it's mostly a silent movie, and plays with many of the themes and styles associated with them, and often frames shots in ways to homage old silent movies, film noirs etc, though the dog really steals the show.

EDIT: I always thought American Wearwolf was a pretty noticable comedy film, kinda lurking around the same level as the scream movies.

I can sort of see why Citizen Kane is considered such a great film. But I just couldn't enjoy it. Then again when I watched it I was significantly sleep deprived. But I remember it well enough that I don't think that made a difference. I would like to say that I really struggled to stay awake though.

Not really a movie, but I've been watching The latest Walking Dead. Not because I think its a great show. Or because I think its entertainingly bad, but because I want it to be good. So I'm watching it hoping it'll improve because right now its just 'meh'.

The whole show has been just 'meh', too much useless drama... how difficult is it to gather a few supplies and lock your self in a room.

So I watched this French film called Caché (Hidden). It's about a husband and wife who start receiving VHS tapes of surveillance of their house. Someone is watching them, but they have no idea why at first. It's a very slow paced movie until one scene that just causes your jaw to drop, but then afterwards the movie begins to drag again. People seem to praise the director (Haneke) for being very artistic in all his shots, so I had to check out another one of his films. I started watching Funny Games, which is about another couple and their son who go to their cottage but are then taken hostage by two sadistic men who toy with them. I can't believe how bored I was by this. How can you make a torture flick this boring? I didn't even finish the movie. I started up and stopped it multiple times.. it was just so blah. Can't believe people praise this director.. I think they're smoking crack along with him.

I think I don't really get scream movies due to culture though, since it seemed to be popular in the past few centuries on the west but our country's cinema didn't have that so I had no context of genre or those kind of scream comedy horror style.

That would probably be the shittest zombie series ever.

I am pleased that you aren't on the writing staff Massy. Although like the earlier few episodes of the series (up into SOPHIAOHNOES) were admittedly pretty dull.

Evil Dead I guess I appreciate the fact that it's a classic. If not for that I don't see anything outstanding about it, though this old scare movies really have some impressive effect given that (at least i assume) the technology to produce effects wasn't that advanced.. Will be watching the rest of the trilogy though so my overall impression might change.

Just watched The Grey and Micheal Clayton. Both awesome movies. I recommend them both.
