Seen any? I watched a good amount of movies (well, more than usual) this month. 15 movies - some good, some not so good. There's always a balance between good and bad. Anyway, here is the list of movies in table form:
|Batman Begins||Christopher Nolan||2005|
|Children of Men||Alfonso Cuarón||2006|
|Cradle 2 the Grave||Andrzej Bartkowiak||2003|
|Drillbit Taylor||Steven Brill||2008|
|Foreigner, The||Michael Oblowitz||2003|
|Little Nicky*||Steven Brill||2000|
|Miss Potter||Chris Noonan||2006|
|Standing Still||Matthew Cole Weiss||2005|
|Terminal, The||Steven Spielberg||2004|
|Unbreakable*||M. Night Shyamalan||2000|
|Used Cars||Robert Zemeckis||1980|
|When Zachary Beaver Came to Town||John Schultz||2003|
Upon seeing Batman Begins, I am very tempted to watch The Dark Knight as soon as it comes to DVD. Hey, I might even have a PS3 and so Blu-ray here we come. It was quite good and a more darker view of Gotham City this time. Little Nicky I've seen quite a few times and I did discover on television - again. A funny movie, indeed. Drillbit Taylor was also from the same director, too. Rushmore was a hidden gem. I'm glad I got recommended this from a few friends on my GameSpot blog a while back. Many thanks! It's an excellent movie, indeed. Highly recommended. I think anyone can easily enjoy this.
Shaft (the remake) had Samuel L. Jackson in it and so that was instantly cool - very like his character in Pulp Fiction. Excellent theme too from the recently deceased Isaac Hayes. Standing Still is basically a more serious version of American Pie. The Terminal was good but dragged on a bit towards the later half. Living in aiport? Well, that's interesting and I think it was actually loosely based on a real person. Unbreakable had some excellent performances by Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson (of course). Good versus Evil!
Now, when I was watching Children of Men, I noticed they used the old slam-door trains (here in the UK), even though it was set in the future. Surely, they could have done better? Anyway, I totally wasn't expecting the credits to suddenly start rolling so soon. It was so unexpected but nevertheless, an interesting concept to bring to a movie (no more babies = mad world). Used Cars was totally over the top and had some kinda cheesy moments. Then again this was Kurt Russell being funny and the 1980s...
Have any movies? Liked/disliked some? Always interested in your opinions and so bring it on. :)
