A "Hey I just watched a movie" thread

Monkfish 1,116 April 23, 2010 at 06:49 PM
One of the other forums I go to has one of these threads and I've been turned on to some good movies that other regulars just watched. I was kind of surprised not to see a similar thread here (at least not that I could find.) Big Grin

I just rewatched "Kinamand" - a cute drama about a Danish plumber who gets involved in an arranged marriage with a Chinese illegal. Good stuff (Netflix instant.)

So what have you folks watched recently?

Of Gods and Men [imdb.com]

Quote :
Under threat by fundamentalist terrorists, a group of Trappist monks stationed with an impoverished Algerian community must decide whether to leave or stay.
Enjoyed this one very much. It shows the fraternity amongst monks as well as their dedication to the community they serve.

Also delves a bit into the coexistence between Islam and Christianity along with the division between Islam and militant Islam.

44 Inch Chest [imdb.com]

Quote :
A jealous husband and his friends plot the kidnapping of his wife's lover with the intention of restoring his wounded ego.
British film with a hell of a cast; Ray Winstone, Tom Wilkinson, Ian McShane and John Hurt.

The acting was great but I can't say that I enjoyed it very much. Then again, I was expecting something totally different. Instead of a nice gangster movie, it was a character study of sorts.

Burke and Hare [imdb.com]

Quote :
A black comedy about two 19th century grave robbers who find a lucrative business providing cadavers for an Edinburgh medical school.
Nice cast with Tom Wilkinson, Simon Peg, Andy Serkis and Tim Curry.


Hilarious movie if you are into "British" comedy.

This line from the IMDB review sums it up quite nicely:

The biggest challenge the story faced was turning two mass murderers into characters you can follow, laugh with and have empathy for and I think this film does it really well.

I Love You Phillip Morris

Interesting. Jim Carey ad Ewan McGregor as lovers, based on a true story. 6 out of 10 stars.

Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Thought it was better then Prince Caspian, but still not as good as the first one.
Dorian Gray (same actor as Prince Caspian), also with Colin Firth. Watching it now.

Also, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Not as good as I thought it would be. I went in not knowing what to expect - didn't know the story or anything like that.

I watched a couple 80's movies the other day

The Big Chill - Solid acting, great 80's haircuts, really took me back to the 80's...loved it

Working Girl - Melanie Griffith and Sigourney Weaver are lights out in this...oh and that Harrison Ford guy isnt bad either. classic 80s flick.

Okuribito (Departures) [imdb.com]

Don't know how I managed to stumble across this movie, but god, I am sooo glad that I did. I was completely mesmerized by it but I honestly have no idea why. It just kind of grabbed me and sucked me in. Maybe it was the cello ? Smilie

Anyways, for those into subtitles, I would highly recommend it.

BTW, unlike just about everything else I seem to watch, this one did NOT involve rape, robbery, murder, blood, gore, bullets, swords, criminals, drugs or the police. Yep, none of the above and it was still one of the better movies that I have watched in a while.

Iagree It's easily one of my favorites of the last decade - that soundtrack is beautiful and the story is fantastic.

The same guy that did this soundtrack also did "Kikujiro" - it's another heartwarming one (with some laugh out loud oddball stuff.)

Foo Fighters: Back and Forth (2011) and Little Fockers (2010). Back and Forth was of course amazing, and Little Fockers had some good moments. Not as bad as I figured it would be.

"Master and Commander" - I had higher hopes for this one.

"Drunken Angel" - Not my favorite Kurosawa film.

"The Man Without a Past" - A Finnish comedic drama. Pretty good.

"Mostly Martha" - The German film that the remake "No Reservations" was based on. It was OK.

"Marwencol" - A fairly recent documentary - it was kind of sad and chilling and boring at the same time.
