In other news, I saw Expendables 2, crazy good fun, pretty funny, too. I think I enjoyed it a bit more than the first one.
Haha, I was actually planning on watching Expendables 2 tonight also

Cool The plot line for Memento just drew me

Any thoughts on Pan's Labyrinth? I heard it was very good but excruciatingly violent. Planning on checking that one out from the library later today.
Yeah, it's definitely up there with Nolan's other films. One thing about it that I didn't enjoy though was the shift towards a lack of realism. It started off as a very believable story..and then that machine ruins everything.

Yes...but just give him that one break and the movie is just great on all fronts. And hey, at least it's supposed to be real "science" from •••Spoiler:   Tesla. Far better than being passed off as magic.

I've also picked up Pan's but haven't watched it yet. I hate those gory/violent/horror type movies, and only got it since it has so many good reviews. If you decide to watch it, let me know what you think of it.
Good reviews...3 academy awards and a 98 metacritic rating...yes I think that's pretty good. For comparison the only movie I've ever seen get a 100 metacritic would be Aliens.

Watched Pan's Labyrinth. Excellent. I was expecting more of a horror movie, and certainly one far more violent (not complaint though). I've got to admit, after hearing over and over how explicit and gratuitous the film is, I watch it expecting something along the lines of Saving Private Ryan with fantasy creatures and instead get a very, very sad story with great acting and script. If you haven't seen this gem yet I highly recommend it.

•••Spoiler:   Is it just me or was anyone else surprised that the Faun wasn't malicious? I guess that make sense in my interpretation of everything being in her imagination, including the part where she's dying and meets the king. She wouldn't imagine an evil faun. Really the whole story was just so sad, the little girl had nowhere to turn to but her books in a really f***ed up situation.

I wish they made movies of this caliber more often.

Yes, you do that. Try the local library to snag it for free first. That's always my first stop.

Saw Black Hawk Down yesterday, decent film, but not my cup of tea.

Anyone seen Catch Me if You Can starring Hanks and DiCaprio?
