The Last King of Scotland
Oh yeah, I saw an ad for Crank and was vaguely interested, I should grab that next time I'm in the video store.
As I recall it did not impress me. Honestly, for the last decade or so I've found myself rolling my eyes at documentaries more and more. Or outright shouting at the screen. David Attenborough still makes entrancing documentaries, that's about it.
They made a sequel to the Grudge? Ew. I was pleasantly surprised with the first one, I was expecting awfulness but it was pretty entertaining.
After reading through all these posts, I am very disappointed that most of
the movies mentioned are not worth seeing. However, what was I expecting on this game site?
Here are a some of my favorites that I highly recommend that you guy's/girls see and I rate them all 9 or 10/10.
The entire Matrix Series
Walk The Line
The Godfather Series
Gangs Of New York
Million Dollar Baby
ETC., I could go on and on with great movies.
And don't tell me to review all of these, just go see them if you have not.
Directed by Michael Mann
This is the prequel to Silence of the Lambs, and the original film that Red Dragon covered. Actually, Red Dragon is very close to the same script for large portions of it. The man who portrays Will Graham is this movie, William Peterson, is very intense although sometimes when he yells out what he's thinking, it comes off as a little unbelievable. The serial killer in this is way more believable, however, than Ralph Fiennes. He's tall as hell and creepy looking. The final scene was fun as hell to watch (and intimidating as well), but I think I prefer the ending to Red Dragon more. And Lecter is portrayed in this film by Brian Cox. How freaking cool is that?
All in all, I enjoyed this movie immensely, and I recommend it to anyone who has or hasn't seen any of the later Hannibal Lecter movies. Also, there's a nice and heavy 80s soundtrack that goes well with the movie.
Perdition Road - crap
Crash - crap
Departed - good
The entire Matrix Series - 2 craps out of 3
Ray - boring
Walk The Line - boring
The Godfather Series - 2 goods out of 3
Casino - boring
Gangs Of New York - boring
Raging Bull - boring
Million Dollar Baby - boring
Braveheart - ok
I liked Manhunter other than the stupidtarded ending of crappity crap
Synopsis - The Ring, but with a video game instead of a video
Review - I liked it, it was a total by the numbers teen horror movie that followed every genre standard without deviation, borrowing a bit from Halloween, The Ring, Dracula, and Suspiria, but it sprinkled in some amusing jokes for gamers and it had a nice setting in Louisiana. It's fun, but quite stupid too, you have to be a fan of these kinds of movies and be willing to let alot go to enjoy it.

Going against the grain that practically all of my friends subscribed to, I did not like most of this movie. In a nutshell, the movie is about a half Spanish, half French college aged kid living in France who has a tough time telling the difference between reality and his dreamstates. This leads to major complications when he begins to fall for his female neighbor, as he has a hard time deciphering whether her affection for him is genuine or all in his head.
I was annoyed by the actions of the main character, and the reactions of the other characters towards him. I was especially annoyed by the fact that noone seemed to realize this guy needs serious psychiatric help. There's a lot of switching from English to French in this movie, and even some Spanish thrown in there for good measure. True to his form, Gondry puts in a lot of innovative stop-motion camera action, but it begins to play like an elongated music video after a while (a medium that Gondry is all too familiar with). Oh yeah, and there's no ending. I think Gondry forgot to add that part in. A real disappointment of a film overall.
