Watched Memento again for the 5th or so time. Excellent as always.

Watched Primer for the 2nd time. I understand it a lot more now. It's becoming more brilliant the more I understand the timelines involved.

primer is a great movie. however, the last movie i saw was bully. i liked it because it realistically created the scene of clueless kids, co-opted by pop culture, endeavoring to murder their faux friend in a florida marsh.

well i just saw inception, and it was worthwhile.

i would have enjoyed it much more if it didnt strongly remind me of recursion.

I was Inception on Friday, but the last movie I saw was The Departed. I enjoyed both a lot.

Same here, except more like 10 hours. I do realise that I've been dreaming, once I've woken up, but I forget FAST!


Next films on my to-see list are 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Dark Knight.

If you're looking for more Nolan check out Following, I enjoyed it a lot. It has a low budget feel but it has a very intricate plot line - typical of Nolan.

Last movie I saw was North by Northwest. Hitchcock is a genius, the cinematography was superb.

I'm going to check out all of Nolan's films, except perhaps not Batman Begins because I'm really not into batman. I'm only going to watch The Dark Knight because everyone says it's really good. I just have something against superheroes *shrug*, although I really enjoyed Kick-Ass.

Last watched Ronin (1998), kind of liked but it really isn't my type of film.

Offtopic: I find it hard to give negative reviews sometimes about films and music. It's a bit because some people work hard on it, and I realise it's pretty subjective. This is rather uncharacteristic for an INTP I think...

The last movie I watched through was The Departed for the second time, though I've mentioned that already. Yesterday I saw some of Burn After Reading, which I had seen about a year ago, but the DVD player stopped working. I was thankful because I didn't want to sit through my family's reaction to a dildo machine, though I would have liked to see Brad Pitt get punched by John Malkovich again.

Those aside, Romeo + Juliet. It's probably safe to say I'm going through a DiCaprio phase at the moment, having seen The Departed and Inception twice each within the last couple of weeks, and Shutter Island earlier this year. I really enjoyed it, particularly: a young and attractive DiCaprio, the soundtrack (Talk Show Host and Exit Music (For a Film) being two of my favourite songs of Radiohead's), the visual style and the dialogue.

I bought that a few weeks ago and haven't brought myself to watching it yet.

I've watched a number of movies over the last few days:

The Squid and the Whale - I enjoyed it, though seeing a young child spread his semen all over the place is a little unsettling.

Into the Wild - Really enjoyed this.

A Single Man - Lots of people I talked to found this boring, but I found it pretty engaging. The use of colour was cool. I liked the ending.

Alice in Wonderland - The new one, that is. Visually stunning, but other than that I didn't find it very impressive. I thought the story predictable and dull.

Going to rewatch Shutter Island tonight.

The Shining is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's a tie between that and Rosemary's Baby.

I watched Snow White: A Tale of Terror yesterday. It was campy horror movie fun. The high point was Sigourney Weaver as the Stepmother/Witch. Tag Line: Evil, like an apple, comes around.

Edit: Fine, fine. I edited it.

I watched Inception today.

A friend of mine told me it was an interesting movie, and I didn't regret to spend six euros for entering the cinema.
Great stuff. Incredible special effects. At least one good french actor, Marion Cotillard was just amazing (almost all other french actors, such as Kad Merad, Clovis Cornillac, Mélanie Laurent... are awful and think they're good). Sensual, consistenting. DiCaprio too (but well, no surprise, he's DiCaprio). The best thing is the rapidly growing complexity of the stuff. 3 and then 4 levels, the mathematical rule that makes you spend 10 years in a dream in a dream in a dream, yeah, that movie rules.

Now I'm just listening to the original soundtrack. Downloaded it 2 hours ago, fine music too.

So, just finished watching Shutter. ( A Thai horror film, not Shutter Island.)

It was pretty cool, some genuinely disturbing moments and a very satisfying ending. The second-to-last reveal I found fairly predictable, but I suppose in some ways that just means the story and characters had good flow. The last one I had no idea about, though, and it was pretty chilling.

You should watch Blood Diamond, if you haven't done that already. Sometimes it's painful to watch because most of what's said in this movie is actually true and even worse. It's a great movie but I think it doesn't get the attention like the other DiCaprio movies. If you like The Departed you might enjoy Infernal Affairs, of which The Departed is a remake, as well. It's arguably an even better movie.

I haven't seen it yet, though I've heard it's very harrowing. A few weeks ago I found a shop that had a good few cheap DVDs, and I had narrowed it down to The Departed, The Shining and Blood Diamond of which I got the first two. Kinda regretting not getting Blood Diamond now. I'll watch it soon hopefully.

Last night I watched Shutter Island for the second time. It was probably more interesting this time round as knowing the ending made made me watch it from a very different perspective.

Tonight I might watch Philadelphia or The Sixth Sense, neither of which I have seen before. Kinda skeptical as the whether I'd enjoy The Sixth Sense, having been told the ending countless times. Or maybe, finally, The Shining.

I kind of want to watch it again though. Maybe not alone this time.

Last night I watched The Lookout. I thought it was okay, but I like Joseph Gordon-Levitt a lot so that ups it.

I just watched The Graduate. I thought it was great. Loved the ending and the first couple of scenes especially. And the soundtrack.

I will not go into the plot because I don't want to ruin the movie for anybody who hasn't seen it. However, the psychology behind that scene is as frustrating as it is fascinating. It just goes to show that sometimes the right decision is the most emotionally devastating. You can't afford waffle when death and destruction is bearing down on you.

One thing I found interesting was that despite knowing that Jack would eventually try to kill his family, during the earlier parts of the movie I was so unsettled by the atmosphere in hotel itself I felt less scared when Danny and/or Wendy were in his company than when they weren't.

As I was reading through the thread I was going to reply with a recommendation for just this. I finished Following recently and it certainly has Nolan's now-recognizable touch all over it.

I also have to recommend The Prestige. It is my favorite Nolan film, and, in my opinion, his best.

Yeah, it was pretty obvious from the beginning what was going to happen with Jack going crazy, but I think knowing it would happen made it even more suspenseful leading to it

Last movies:
Bad boy bubby and
Mononike hime.
Enjoyed both of them. However strange it would sound both movies are very humane and worth watching. BBB is visually disturbing/disgusting but reveals that human nature is basically good; mononoke is visually beautiful/fairy tale like but uncovers some destructive aspects of human and civilization.

House of Flying Daggers. I had seen a couple of scenes before, but knew nothing of the plot. I liked it, there was certainly some food for thought. Initially I suspected it would be a martial arts flick but I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't find it emotionally satisfying though, because I didn't connect with the characters (which I suspect was the intention of the writers). Still, I enjoyed it.

Oldboy. I saw it about a year ago with a friend who had seen it many times before. My friend had to explain the twist, and having watched it just now I've got to conclude that I really wasn't concentrating at all the first time because though it was subtle, it was very obvious when paying a shred of attention. I don't care much for gore, but it obviously added to the shock factor. Plenty to think about. I liked it more than House of Flying Daggers.

Just saw Wild Grass (Alain Resnais). It's lots of fun to watch a master having fun with the form. I still marvel at how something as deliberate and involved as a film can be made to feel completely spontaneous.

Shutter Island.

Not sure how I feel about it.
I had already seen Inception and liked that much better.

Despite all the sleight of hand, Shutter Island was far more straightforward in terms of narrative truth and pretty much explains itself. It definitely got more interesting after the first half or so.

I watched about half an hour of The Kite Runner but stopped because:

The DVD player jammed and I didn't feel like switching the computer on;
I wasn't really engaging with it;
I haven't read the book, but I read A Thousand Splendid Suns last year and loved it so I think I should read the book first.

Before that I watched The Beach, and though I wasn't particularly riveted by the ending and thought it dragged on a bit at some points, I really liked it. It left me with plenty to think about and I really liked Richard's development and the stuff about idealism and community. I also loved the soundtrack.

Just finished Match Point. I thought it was great. Hated every central character except Scarlett Johansson's, who was needless to say utterly stunning. It's also the first Woody Allen movie I've seen. I really liked the tone of it. I hope to watch more of his films soon.

that movie was spliced together in an interesting way. 3/4 of the way through (90 min mark) the climax occurs and then it turns into poe's tell-tale heart. that tennis/luck motif was a good one, and scarlett j doesnt look too bad either i like her in lost in translation more though, although match point provides competition. then again, i cant disparage any woody allen movie, that guys great; he has that clint eastwood actor/director/writer situation working, but in a different way.

Well, I've been watching a ton of movies lately, so in no particular order:

Shutter Island (Meh. Liked it, but been watching too many twist movies lately.)
Alice in Wonderland (Entertaining, but the whole world began to seem fake after a while.)
Se7en (Rather loved this one.)
Rent (Two-hundred twenty-five thousand six-hundred minutes...)
Kick-Ass (Yesssssssss. I am a sucker for action flicks.)
The Sixth Sense (I am the only one who hated this movie? Maybe my expectations were too high. Dull.)

Visually that one's quite stunning. I don't much recall the plot, but I did find it dragged on when I first watched it. (The death scenes at the end, maybe?)
Have you seen Hero?

I have seen Hero, yes, but it was on poor reception television and I didn't engage with the plot at all. It's a movie I certainly hope to see again, and hope its impact will not be lessened by recalling some parts.

Blood Diamond, which I thought was great. I engaged emotionally, but also found myself contemplating many large issues that were brought up in it. As far as I'm concerned if a movie has that effect on me it's a success. There was a part, near the end of the trip to get the diamond where I started to get bored though, and I reckon I'd have enjoyed it a lot more if some of that had been cut out. After all, it's almost two and a half hours long. That said, I still really liked it.

*Snort* ZombieLand. That move was hysterical. Then again my sense of humor is non-sequitur.

Can't find Inception online anywhere with decent quality

Transamerica. I thought it was very good. Very challenging to watch in that I'm not particularly familiar with - let alone used to - transsexuality, but entertaining for the same reason. I loved the theme song.

North by Northwest. It was the first Hitchcock film I have seen. I enjoyed most of it, particularly the gradual flow of information to the audience. Piecing it together was very enjoyable. However, I thought it dragged on:
Spoiler:
I really liked the scene where Eve "shot" Roger, but after it was explained I got bored. The scenes at the house (though I liked the use of the pack of matches and the gun with blanks) and Mount Rushmore seemed far too long. The ending seemed very abrupt too.

What I found very irritating was:
Spoiler:
The scene at the cornfield, iconic as it may be. When it transpired later (unless I am mistaken) that Vandamm simply wanted Roger dead, I found the use of the plane completely illogical. Why not just send someone to shoot him on foot?

Paris, je t'aime. I loved every minute of it.

La Vie En Rose. Marion Cotillard was great, and she was the image of Edith Pief. It was a very tragic story, but I didn't really engage with it. If it hadn't been for the non-chronological storyline I think I would've been very bored.

SCOTT PILGRIM NEONE? The plot was pretty stupid, but the action+comedy+shenangians was worth it

The last film I watched was one I was asked to watch with the rest of the family. I think it was Transformers 2? I remember there being lots of robots, explosions and crap. It so ridiculously full of mistakes and plot holes and tediously mind numbing amount of explosions that by the end of it I was imagining my own story in place of the lack of story it had.

No idea why people seemed to like it.

Fight Club: I was surprised to see how faithful the movie was to the book. It was was okay.

Nine: It's ok, I suppose. It could've been better. Tim Burton's movies are usually very predictable, it would seem.

Armageddon: .....did a day dreaming driller write this? Reminded me of this. I suppose it's a good movie, though.

Brothers Bloom: It was surprisingly good. I don't see why people thought the plot twists were too hard to follow though. Don't listen to them. This movie is easy to follow but not stupidly easy. I enjoyed this for the recurring language and the idea that life is a story you tell yourself. The storybook style in which this story is told keeps this movie from being too serious. It was humorous.

I rented "Into the Wild" because it was mentioned in one of the INTP forums. Not sure if it was this one. What interests me is whether you think INTPs tend to be "loners" as the character in this movie seemed to be. I always thought of myself as a loner up to a few years ago when I decided that was not a useful way to be.
