    I never get tired of watching Scent of a woman, Al Pacino is a great actor.

    As for Beautiful Mind, i watched it long time ago so i cant really make a fair judgement but i have enjoyed it.

    Just watched Super

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eL57ncw2jr8

    I'm not a big fan of the comic book hero genre, so the idea of a dark parody appealed to me. The film was quite funny, worth watching and mostly enjoyable. It's like a dark and real version of Kick Ass, it's almost between South Park, Kick Ass and Kill Bill. Gruesome, but not daring, fun and funny, but not hilarious.

    Anyway, worth considering.

    Everyone in that movie is a great actor/ess

    So once again I'm left with the classic Irish man's dilemma, do I eat the potato or do I let it ferment so I can drink it later?

    Teaser trailer for The Host

    It's based on the book by Stephanie Myers who wrote Twilight. Unlike Twilight, which was teen porn, the book is pretty mature and deals with a lot of good themes.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sHWC3mRMd0


    Quote
    Based on the best-selling novel by "Twilight Saga" author Stephenie Meyer, The Host is a riveting story about the survival of love and the human spirit in a time of war. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact. Most of humanity has succumbed.

    Not sure if it's been posted before

    But I just watched Drive (2011)



    Trailer:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWX34ShfcsE


    Fantastic, I was skeptical at first because it was number 1 on many top 10 of 2011 lists (usually not a good sign) and because the trailer makes it look like a fast and furious style action film, but actually it's more like a crime drama and 80s style film noir, beautiful shots, great synth soundtrack and the performances are amazing, especially Ryan Gosling.

    9/10, recommended!

    Have you seen Chronicle ? It's not a parody but it's quite a dark take on the superhero genre.

    Yeah, it's worth a gander. I hadn't heard what it was about before I saw it so it was a pleasant surprise. The characters are not annoying like they are in most teen supernatural drama. Great young cast.

    Cool, thanks for the recommendation, saw the trailer in the cinema when I was watching that awful film MI4 and thought it was worth a look-in.

    I see some good movie suggestions here Smiley, I will have to watch Drive, seems to be a good one Smiley

    I wanna list the last 3 movies I watched.

    1. The Big Lebowski, great movie, my type of thing and it appeals to me because I got a bunch of friends with that type of character and personality lol.

    2. The Mechanic, wasn't that bad.

    3. Clash of the Titans, a decent movie, maybe u will find it boring but it is appealing to me because I like Ancient Balkan History.

    I watched Chronicle, very enjoyable. I liked the concept, I liked the story, I liked the funny bits, I would have enjoyed it a bit more if it were more drawn out and longer, but it fit the purpose, great film. Thanks for the recommendation Ishina.

    I just found out the guy who directed Bronson also directed this.

    I don't know why The Times describes Drive as a "Blood pumping thrill ride of a movie" though. It's rather unhurried and contemplative. The pauses before Gosling speaks are so lingering and mesmerising that they can take your breath away with anticipation.

    New film to review: The Conspirator (2010)

    Trailer

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LzovRI4zig

    Without giving too much away, the film tells the true story of the trials of the alleged conspirators involved in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and focuses on the trial of Mary Surratt, the mother of one of the conspirators who found herself on trial when her son went into hiding. Representing Surratt is a young, up-and-coming attorney who, after returning a Civil War hero finds himself tasked with one of the most difficult defence cases possible despite his personal convictions and allegiances.

    The film draws strong parallels between the hysteric tones present after the tragedies of the Lincoln assassination and the 9/11 attacks, as well as the legal and constitutional violations in the trials/imprisonment of alleged perpetrators/terrorists and abettors in both cases.

    I loved the film (and not everyone will), I found it excellent, but then I generally love films which focus on high profile trials (the last one I enjoyed was Neuremberg (2000) with Alec Baldwin). The film does take patience, as it can be slow in places, but generally it's a worthwhile watch. James McAvoy (last king of Scotland, Wanted, X-Men first class) delivers a solid performance as do the rest of the cast.

    7.5/10

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/05/05/models-vs-militants-nisha-pahuja-s-film-on-indian-women-s-two-worlds.html

    Quote
    In the camp, the girls learn to despise other religions. They are lectured on how they should marry as teens. They’re told they don’t need higher education. They learn how to fight with knives and fire rifles in case “enemies” such as Muslims and Christians attack. “I will kill people!” chirps one young girl when asked how she will use her newfound skills.

    It’s a sharp contrast to the pageant zone, where stylists flutter around young hopefuls, prepping them on how to look their best and be confident but “not bitchy.” In the days leading up to the pageant, the contestants get Botox to perfect their young faces, and pose for a Bombay Times photo shoot wearing tight jeans and ripped T-shirts. When the newspaper comes out, Ruhi gazes at her portrait, musing that the paper is so important, “even the president” must be looking at it.


    Quote
    Nothing in the film is black and white. The pageant contestants, while proud of their beauty, also struggle at times with morals and modesty. At one point, a young woman laments shedding her dignity when she has to participate in a “best legs” contest ahead of the pageant, donning a white sheet over her head and torso to walk the runway with the other shrouded contestants, showing nothing but leg. Prachi, meanwhile, is obedient to her father, but has a major problem with his mandate that she wed. She just can’t see it happening. She describes herself as being like both “a girl and a boy.” She says, “When God made me, he was in a different mood. He combined two things together and sent me down.”

    One option she entertains for her future: becoming a martyr for her Hindu cause.

    It’s her story that lingers long after the film ends.
