Of course!  I subscribe to the idea that there's only one movie trilogy that can be mentioned in this manner (and it ain't LotR [which had it's good points and Return of the King did deserve that best picture oscar] or Godfather).  That said, there's only one book trilogy worthy of being called "the Trilogy" and it ain't any of the Star Wars (or Godfather).


Oh there is a great bit about that "trilogy", but I fear it would stretch the bounds propriety here. *sigh*

Would it happen to be Kevin Smith's?  If so, LOL just at the memory, but yes, probably not appropriate to this forum.

No. probably not!  There's only one Return and it's not of the King.  It's of the Jedi.

edit - By the way, Book Trilogies are for the weak.  I refer you to Captain Richard Sharpe.  (I know, all of you with class will remind me that by Waterloo he made it to Lieutenant Colonel but my favorite books were back when he was a Captain.)

Any good?

Are you really seriously asking?  The answer, in short, is NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I have to watch it. Ive made such a fuss already

You did well.  Watch it and keep the Fast Forward button handy.  Acting - poor.  Plot - poorer.  By poor I mean as poor as a widow who spent her last two mites then bought an Escalade taking a loan from the Mafia.  The world being destroyed bits...not bad.  I bet if you are liberal with the FF button you can make it into a 45 minute movie.  A decent 45 minute movie, but 45 minutes nonetheless. 

BTW, if the world does end in 2012, I blame John Cusack.

I've been super bored at home, so movies I have watched recently:

Children of Men
Fight Club
Body of Lies
Pride and Prejudice (2005)
The Young Victoria
2012 (hush now, the special effects made it bearable)
Public Enemies
Idiocracy
The Island (not the Orthodox one, but the one directed by Michael Bay)

I also completed series 2 of Primeval and watched part 1 of a British miniseries called The Outcasts. Spending my time wisely, as you all can see...

That's how I felt about Marie Antoinette with Kirsten Dunst. Beautiful for the eyes but grating on the mind.

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

I just watched No Country For Old Men, which while seemingly not the best choice during Fasting season, actually turned out to be quite edifying.

It seems to me that this film has a good moral, that some of the aspects of our lives like our careers, our major decisions, our ambitions, are not necessarily based upon the material gain or the surface view, rather we often do what we do out of the "thrill of the chase"

In this film the drug and gun runners didn't seem to be doing what they did for the money, rather for the power, for the thrill, for the sheer experience of it, as surely there could be enough money or guns and yet these folks continue on with it.

Anton is a hitman not for the money, not for the drugs, not even for the power or the status, but rather because he seems to get a perverse thrill from it, a sense of determination and accomplishment.  He even makes this point when asking Carson (woody's character), "If the rule you followed lead you to this, what was the point of that rule?" before he killed him..

The Sherriff (Tommy Lee Jones) was not necessarily doing what he did out of a sense of justice or stopping the bad guys, as surely he had arrested and stopped enough to be satisfied, and yet in his attempt at retirement he was too anxious just to enjoy breakfast, rather the thrill of the chase still beckoned him.

Llewellyn Moss was not in it for the money, as several times he had the money and could have walked away, or even just abandoned the money.  The trouble really started for him not with the money, but with having gone back to give water to that dying drug dealer..

All the drama was not a result of the circumstances or the reality of the situations, rather as a result of the characters reactions, interpretations, decisions made afterward.

The conclusion where Anton goes to kill Llewellyn's wife explains it also, when he flips the coin and says, "Its the best I can do" and the wife responds saying," Its not the coin, its you, it was always you."

This is the truth.  We do not chase our dreams, make our livings, search out our ambitions because of the material rewards or the mental satisfaction of the accomplishment, rather like Anton or the Sheriff or the dealers or Llewellyn, we seem to operate more so out of the mechanism of having already been involved, of the thrill of being in the chase, of simply acting out the events to their conclusion.. We do what we do not because of principle or material gain, rather because we seem to have nothing else in life to do but to follow our opportunities be they what they are.

In this film, the opportunities were negative, but the reality was the same.  The Characters did not act because they had too, but because even if subconsciously they wanted to, to be involved with that never ending chase, just as the Sun always sets to rise again a new day.

I find that Inception and Napoleon Dynamite both improved upon the second viewing (albeit in very different ways).

Didn't like the Big Lebowski until about the fifth time I saw it. Now it is one of my faves.

Why did I watch a film I didn't like five times? That is a story unto itself.

I'd kind of like to hear it. I'm curious as to why it would take that long. That was a good movie.

I watched 9th Company a few weeks ago.  It is a Russian movie about the Afghan War.  Not bad.  Not bad at all.  I thought it was very reminiscent of Full Metal Jacket.

visually it is beautiful, thought provoking , just a little too cut and paste for me. I loved the simplicity  and color of the 50's, a loving father trying his best and still getting it wrong compared to the angst, emptiness and sterility of the modern life.
The creation/evolution scene was amazing and it made me PERSONALLY believe that there is no way there is not a creator or plan behind our existence, it is not chance (others will differ in their interpretation)  Oh and the acting is very good, you forget it is THE Brad Pitt. :)

The most recent movie I've watched was an independent film called Diary of a City Priest. It was quite good. It shows a somewhat gritty view of the job of a Catholic priest in a rough inner city area of Philadelphia. David Morse plays the priest Fr. John McNamee and shows his struggles to try and serve everyone. It shows how much is demanded of him. People come to him at night asking for food, shoes, and help with their other problems not to mention all that is demanded by the people of his parish. It was hard for him to even sit down to eat dinner without interruption. It is a great story of self denial and sacrifice and how much this regular priest is responsible for. Honestly, to be a priest must require the patience of a rock, especially with Fr. John in the film.

I highly recommend it.

I'm looking forward to seeing HP7 - Part 2 on Friday at 10am.  I loved the series, but am not fanatical enough to go to a midnight showing.  For the last 7 the theatre was pretty empty at the 10am showing, and I could enjoy the movie in peace. I guess this proves I'm an old fogey... ;D

Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman

Battle: Los Angeles[/i] (absolutely horrible)


Agreed. Have you seen Skyline? It's practically the same movie.

The Queen
How did you like it?

Great acting, but a little too British in terms of the boorish drama. It's a one-time watch for sure.

Saw Bridesmaids last week, loved it.
