The Hills Have Eyes

k1ng: The Hills Have Eyes (2006) 4.5 / 5.0
k1ng: The Hills Have Eyes is a great horror movie. I have yet to see Wes Craven's original 1977 version, but that is soon to change. Seeing this movie in a popular and crowded movie theater on a Saturday night has reminded me why I usually try to avoid doing that. Despite my bad theatrical experience, I still really enjoyed the movie. It was gory and had some very well-designed freaks that would scare me in real life even if they weren't trying to kill me.

Transamerica

k1ng: Transamerica (2005) 4.0 / 5.0
k1ng: Transamerica tells about a story about a pre-op transsexual who meets and goes on a road trip with her son a week before she undergoes her sexual reassignment surgery. It was an good story, and it was interesting to see life through the eyes of a transsexual. I think I would have liked it better if it was a documentary, but I still enjoyed the film as a drama.

A Woman is a Woman

k1ng:
A Woman is a Woman (1961)
4.5 / 5.0

4.5 / 5.0
fkxik: A self aware film that plays with color, editing and most noticably music for a unique effect in this energetic love story about a stripper, her two lovers, and her desire for a child.

k1ng: A quirky film with some great scenes and dialog. I especially liked the scene in which they use book titles to argue with each other. This was my first, but certainly not my last, Godard film.

C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America

k1ng: C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America (2004) 3.0 / 5.0
k1ng: A fake british documentary showing the history of the Confederate States of America. That is, what happened to the US after the South won the civil war. It's an interesting idea, but I wasn't impressed with the film as a whole.

Pride & Prejudice

Pride & Prejudice (2005)
4.5 / 5.0

4.5 / 5.0
sulfur: I really enjoyed Keira (Elizabeth) and Matthew Macfadyen (Mr. Darcy) characters as they go back and forth for loathing one another to love. Great story, acting, drama, romance. I wish we still lived in a era where men bowed and ladies cursed.

k1ng: I love great dialog and Pride & Prejudice (based on the book by Jane Austen) was full of it. I completely agree with sulfur's review. Seeing this movie makes me wish that more people took the time and effort to speak more good-like and stuff.

Rent

k1ng: Rent (2005) 2.0 / 5.0
k1ng: I was curious about this movie, even though I figured I probably wouldn't like it that much. The song from the trailer was catchy. What can I say?

Being that this was a musical there was a lot of singing--and that's okay--but when they started recycling songs I lost interest. I imagine (and hope) the stage production is much better.

American Psycho

dickle: American Psycho (2000) 4.0 / 5.0
dickle: American Psycho is a brilliant yet crazy film. Christian Bale gives an remarkable performance, and he convinced me that the world sickens me, and that I should kill them. The film does have some big flaws, but it does have a satisfying narration and a impressive translation from novel to movie.

Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story

k1ng:
dickle:
Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story (2005)
4.0 / 5.0

4.5 / 5.0
k1ng: Tristram Shandy is a meta-movie that I'm not even going to attempt to summarize. It was witty and filled with golly-good laughs. It also had 12 of the 14 British actors in it.

dickle: The best comedy that I have seen in a long time.

Naked Lunch

fkxik: Naked Lunch (1990) 4.5 / 5.0
fkxik: A surreal film about an author and his struggles with reality. The dialog and puppetry are good as well.

Bubble

Bubble (2005)
4.0 / 5.0

4.0 / 5.0
sulfur:
+ Steven Soderbergh
- too short, unprofessional actors
? Is this what happens to people that work in a toy factory.

k1ng: Bubble is a very mellow movie about 3 toy factory workers. Their lives are depressing, yet still interesting enough to look at for an hour and 13 minutes. Steven Soderbergh did a good job by getting this released in theaters and on dvd at the same time. I hope this trend catches on.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

dickle: Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) 5.0 / 5.0
dickle: A crazy general of the Air Force decides that it is time to start a nuclear war. He orders a air strike on the USSR, hilarity ensues. This comedy's topic is far from funny, but it is presented in such a way that you can't help but laugh. Stanley Kubrick's best film

Always for Pleasure

fkxik: Always for Pleasure (1977) 4.0 / 5.0
fkxik: A documentary that'll get you tapping your feet and wanting to dance. Les Blank shows the city of New Orleans and it's facination with publicly celebrating whatever holiday it can with dance and song in the streets.

Midnight Cowboy

fkxik: Midnight Cowboy (1980) 4.0 / 5.0
fkxik: The perfomances are what really shine in the story of a cowboy prostitute and his ill friend and their adventures in New York City. Also worth noting is the editing in the flashblack/memory and party sequences is quite different than anything else I've seen and really well done.

The Big Red One

dickle: The Big Red One (1980) 5.0 / 5.0
dickle: This movie is far from perfect, but probably my favorite war film. Samuel Fuller writes and directs this epic that is set during WWII. A small unit, of the company, tries to survive some of the major battles of the war. As it turns out the movie is more about the people and how they react to war then about war itself. The movie ends wonderfully, and Mark Hamill isn't that bad as a soldier, opposed to a jedi.

dickle: North by Northwest (1959) 4.0 / 5.0
dickle: Roger O. Thornhill is mistaken for a secret agent and is pursued constantly by the Vandamm gang and the police, who think he is a murderer. North by Northwest is a little more predictable than Alfred Hitchcock’s other films and more action packed. He delivers yet another captivating movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

"...and God created woman"

dickle: Et Dieu... créa la femme (1956) 4.5 / 5.0
dickle: The story is about a wild orphan and the three men that love her. This is a great film that pulls you in two directions. At times I laughed and at other times I felt sympathy. The story was almost not present, but the film never seemed to lose direction.

Ice Harvest

Sulfur: Ice Harvest (2005) 3.0 / 5.0
Sulfur: + John Cusack, Billy Bob Thornton characters.

? I enjoyed the trailer more than the film.

Oz: Season 1-6

sulfur: Oz: Season 1-6 (2000) 5.0 / 5.0
sulfur: Oz the name on the street for the Oswald Maximum Security Correctional Facility: Level Four. Drugs, Rape, Violence, Death are all a daily activites in Oz. Watch as the the Aryans, the Muslims, the Latinos and the Italians wrestle for power.
I'm sad to see this show end. I feel I'm alot more prepared for prison after watching this show.

The Motorcycle Diaries

k1ng: Diarios de motocicleta (2004) 4.5 / 5.0
k1ng: The Motorcycle Diaries is a beautifully shot film the depicts about a year of the lives of Che Guevara and his cousin as they go on a long road trip through South America. This is before Che became a famous revolutionary leader. Gael García Bernal is easily one of my favorite actors and he did a great job in this movie. I really liked the "live photos" at the end of the movie that shows all the people that they came in contact with during their trip. Viva la revolution!

Running Scared

fkxik: Running Scared (2006) 4.0 / 5.0
fkxik: Paul Walker isn't crap in this heavily stylized and purpousfully disjointed action flick about the mob, dirty cops, and a missing gun. The film makes some brave choices regarding kids, violence, and nudity and although it has its flaws, I was more than satisfied.

Oddity Note: This is a really wierd follow up for Wayne Kramer director of The Cooler.

Burden of Dreams

fkxik: Burden of Dreams (1982) 4.5 / 5.0
fkxik: A 'Making Of' documentary about Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo that parallels the struggles of the director and his main character. One of the best of its type and strong enough to stand on its own and not just as a DVD supplement.

Straw Dogs

fkxik: Straw Dogs (1971) 4.5 / 5.0
fkxik: A mathamatician violently defends his house against intruders in this western inspired movie hilighting great acting by Hoffman and excellent story telling and direction skills by Peckinpah.

Blue Velvet

fkxik: Blue Velvet (1986) 4.0 / 5.0
fkxik: A perfect example of David Lynch doing his thing. Kidnapping, rape, and mutilation are all present in this bizzare but enjoyable mystery/love story.
