Next weekend, I'll probably watch In Bruges. I have it at home from Netflix. Has anyone seen it yet?

Thank you! Well, I'm glad to hear that you guys think it was a great film. A friend of mine said he didn't like it, so it made me a little unsure of the movie. But now, I'm totally looking forward to watching it Friday night.

yes, i loved in Bruges.  i thought there was a thread? nevermind.  anyway, The Visitor was absolute shit.  i guess it filled that vague "multicultural" slot in the oscar nominations.

Oh my god!  I linked the thread and she quoted the link!  If I didn't know better, I'd say you've been drinking!

Sorry.  I've been driven insane by what is now a solid hour of somebody spinning their tires in the ice.  Now I'm wondering if he's going to run out of gas.

Transsiberian.

Brad Anderson's tale of boring, annoying, irrational, Naive Americans in Russia who stumble across a clumsy drug cartel run by Ben Kingsley acting at about 12% paycheck grabbing efficiency.

I'm glad I didn't pay for it but, despite that, it's still a pretty good little thriller.  I found sections of it truly engrossing, was frustrated by the plot, and thought the ending was weaker than one scoop of Folgers for the whole pot.  But...eh.

The Wrestler.

A quietly amazing movie.  Rourke is surprisingly wonderful, Tomei is beautiful and tragic and endearing, as always.  There's nothing complicated and heavy about this movie... It's basically Aronofsky does the latest chapter of Rocky.  Except it's chock full of classic 1980's pro wrestling and great music.  And has more spirit.

Eastern Promises.

Wow, I was slow on this one.

Kind of left me cold, though.  Tight little story, able cast, but I didn't really get into it, and found the ending to be underwhelming.  I actually liked that idiotic Transsiberian more.  (Since the club is named "Trans Siberian," I found myself comparing the movies every time I saw the sign.)

i thought the wrestler sucked.  everyone is claiming its some kind of comeback mickey rourke movie, but i thought just about anyone who looked like mickey rourke could've played the part.

The fact that Rourke made a movie without leaping on top of someone on the crew and eating their eyes out is the reason it's considered his comeback.

So I finally watched Pineapple Express last night.  I laughed my fucking ass off.  I thought it was hilarious.  I was very pleasantly surprised, but I can also understand why some people wouldn't find it entertaining.

The car chase scene was probably my favorite part... Saul driving the stolen cop car with his right foot stuck in the windshield had me rolling with laughter because you just see this cop car racing around with a foot sticking out the front.  I dunno.  Maybe you have to be stoned to enjoy this movie.
