Bio:
I am interested in sharing movie reviews with people with similar, or even not similar taste in movies. I watch at least a few movies every week and try to leave at least a short comment on all. (I would love to watch more, but that thing called work will keep getting in the way. LOL). I visit Flixster daily and possibly need a life! I am not stuck up about my movies, and I like most genres. While I do have a preference towards lower budget films, I can also enjoy a good chick flick. Most of the movies I see are pretty average and I rate them around 3 stars. Anything lower than a 3 and you know I thought it was pretty bad, (if it got half a star, no comment!). Anything 3 and a half to 4 is pretty good. 5 stars, amazing. I do not send out a lot of recommendations,(though sending more out these days than I have previously). I tend to figure most people here have seen older films or big budget ones. I will send out recommendations for smaller films that I think may have flown under people's radar. But I enjoy reading the recommendations of others, so keep them coming! I do not add people with no reviews and I'm really not interested in those who want to just send the same old pick up lines out to ten other people. This is not a dating site, people! If you want to be real and chat about movies, then feel free to add me. Also, I have unadded people for sending me too many widgets - particularly of the soft porn variety. If I wanted to look at that, and be associated with it, I would be on a very different website! I am pretty friendly and open minded, but as previously stated, I am here for the movies, so don't bother contacting me if you have other reasons for joining this site. Hate to sound horrible, but there have been a few lately....

Interesting. Could have done without the immaculate conception (please! It was probably her step father!), but this was nicely filmed and acted. The Amish seeming upbringing and family were something different for this type of film.

Admittedly I only lasted 15 minutes into this, but it's exactly what you think it would be.
I'm sure it would have its audience, but I'm not one of them. Though in all fairness, I did not like The Hangover and I'm lukewarm on The Hunger Games. If I was a fan, maybe I would be more amused by this. I did watch the Twilight spoof a few years ago and was mildly entertained by it.

Picked this up for $6. Hadn't seen it before, but looked like a bit of 90's tack I might enjoy.
Actually, it wasn't too bad. The glass in the cookies scene alone raised this movie half a star.
What I didn't like was the end. Seriously? The woman is crazy and has killed several people and he thinks she's going to take that?!

Not my favourite Hal Hartley, but interesting.

All time favourite of mine. Can't believe this movie is 20 years old now.
As always watching this, I find Elina Lowensohn compelling. What an underrated actress she was. Pity she seems to be not acting anymore.
Typical great Hal Hartley film. He really made some classics around this time (Trust, The Unbelievable Truth). I loved these films and used to watch them over and over on VHS.
The story is excellent. Sophia, a young woman duped into porn films and drug addiction at a young age, (Elina Lowensohn), decides she has had enough and pushes the man who trapped her out a window (Martin Donovan).
However, he doesn't die, but wakes up with amnesia. He meets an ex nun, Isabelle (Isabelle Hupert) who takes him in and starts to fall for him. He has nightmares and talks in his sleep about a woman he treated badly and threatened, Sophia.
Seeing Sophia in a porn magazine makes him curious about whether she may be his Sophia, and he and Isabelle step out to help her.
There's a little more to it than that, but that's basically the premise. Highly original and beautifully filmed. Just the way the script is written is worth watching it for. The delivery of the lines. Can't gush enough. If you have never seen this, I highly recommend it.
