The Matrix (ONLY the first one) was very good, too. As the parenthesized phrase states, the other two weren't as good. The second was decent, but I disliked the third one.

I tolerated the second and expected a pretty good finale.

Wow, such shit was the third one.

But yeah, the first was brilliant.

drag me to hell and district 9 are my favourite movies of 2009, however i'm going to see paranormal activity and zombieland this week so hopefully they are good. i'll try and see avatar before the year ends too.

i watched wall-e for the first time a couple of weeks ago. that movie is amazing. my eyes havent watered up during an animated film since the lion king in 1994. if any animated film deserved best picture it was that one.

i thought my bloody valentine was surprisingly suspenseful and twisty. i saw it in 3d too which made it even more awesome.

It actually took me 3 watches through the movie to understand it. It is a pretty philosophical sorta movie. But yeah, The Matrix was brilliant.

yes! as i mentioned before, ichi the killer is in my top 3. what do you think of miike's other movies? audition, full metal yakuza, and the dead or alive trilogy are all very good in my opinion. i also found mpd: psycho for cheap in a little video store by my house, which is a decent little mini-series. i couldn't get into visitor q, and i've also got izo on my netflix queue.

Zombies ftw.

My personal favorites regarding zombs:
28 Days Later (easily #1)
Zombieland
Shaun of the Dead
Dawn of the Dead (despite being crappy, twas enjoyable. kinda like Indiana Jones 4)


and holy crap i'm surprised it took 38 posts to get some loving for Fight Club. definitely my favorite of Fincher's earlier work (pretty much anything pre-Benjamin Button :P).

I've been reading the internets about Akira Kurosawa tonight and I've decided it's high time to get into his stuff.

Yeah, Moon is a great debut.

I really need to see mr. Kaufman's non spike jonze films, especially eternal sunshine.

I'd very much like to see synecdoche as well. Phillip Seymour Hoffman is a great actor.

I've seen it 3 times. Each time was quite an experience.
The second time I watched it was with a girl who after an a hour a half was squirming and reeling with displeasure. It was entertaining.

I still haven't seen 28 Weeks Later though. Heard it wasn't nearly as good on account of change in director among other things. Still wanna see it though.

I'm gonna watch me some Mullholland Drive tomorrow, it being my day off an' all. I think I've seen it before, there's like no dialogue for the first half of the movie or summit. District 9 kicked ass. Wall-e was a real tearjerker, aye. Ichi the Killer is kinda daft. Oldboy is kinda good, if twisted as fuck. Visitor q was fun, but I don't think I'll be watching it again.

Man, I sure as hell ain't gonna be a movie critic when I grow up.

Wall-E was great, but I didn't consider it to be as much of a tear-jerker as Up. Still a great movie, though.

I can't wait for Toy Story 3 to come out, I'ma try to see it the day it comes into theatres, even. I was 3 fuckin' years old when the first movie came out.

28 Weeks Later was pretty good, not as good as Days, though.

Yes @ Toy Story 3. One of the screenwriters is also responsible for writing Little Miss Sunshine, easily one of my favorite comedies.

Plus Toy Story 1 is the first film I have a memory of seeing in theaters. So I have quite the attachment. 2 was pretty good as well. The new characters were very well done, I thought.

Am i the only one that didn't think a great deal of Wall-E? I mean it's good, of course it is, it's by Pixar. But Wall-E, as a character, i found a little tiresome.

There is dialogue, but it's very sparse for the first 20-30 mins. Just go with it, enjoy the ambiguity. Personally i love it.

Hmm. Films I watched this weekend:
The Big Lebowski
Happiness
Little Miss Sunshine
Stepbrothers

My favourite films EVAR are Disneys Sleeping Beauty (shush) and Edward Scissorhands. Tim Burton... lately I'm not as enamoured with his work. I think his vision of things has become cliched in a way, hes like a parody of himself. And I'm getting really bored of Depp and Bohnam-Carter being in allllll his films.

I'm kind of cut off from films (everything... LIFE) lately, this year I've seen Up in the cinema and that might be about it. I tried to go and see Moon while it was showing but it wasn't playing anywhere near me at time I could go.

I wish I was more knowledgable about filmography because I could nerd out about films all day. I think I'll pick some up whilst I study photography and maybe even concentrate more on that side of things at some point.

Tbh, gaining knowledge about filmography is quite simple. I recommend the following.

-Watch commentaries on DVDs. Especially David Fincher's films. He usually has several commentaries that go over every aspect of the film, from production design to cinematography to music to experiences with the actors

-Read a shooting script sometime, the scripts that have every detail like the camera movements and such in them. And i'm not talking about the company called The Shooting Script's scripts either. Those aren't even shooting scripts. But seriously, after reading just one or two you'll pretty much have a feel for how folks write movies and what looks good depending on the scene, stuff like that. Very helpful.

-Books.

Yeah, I thought the second Toy Story was pretty good, too. Some might think they're just trying to gain money off of the series, but really the story makes sense. I'm dying to see what actually happens in the end of Toy Story 3, I have a feeling it's gonna be a tear-jerker.
