Azumi
Azumi (2003)
8 years ago via Flixster

Good, albeit unbelievable action, good plot too. A little on the long side, but still a good movie. A must see for ninja fans, or people that like great decapitations.

Inside (À l'intérieur)

Probably the best horror film since Audition

The Dark Knight
8 years ago via Flixster

The first thing is, this movie isn't for children, Batman Begins wasn't really for children, but this one is not at all for a young audience. (which makes me happy I went to the midnight show). I think Heath Ledger's performance of the joker will undoubtedly go down as the best villain of all time. It was more unnerving than Hannibal Lector, more evil than Darth Vader, and more maddenning than Norman Bates, the ideas presented in his performance are beyond the usual basic and generic morality that presents itself in most Hollywood movies. This truly is a charismatic villain, and without a doubt one for the film history books.

The performance of Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent could have just been Harvey Dent, setting up Two Face for the next movie. That being said, he was excellent as the White Knight of Gotham.

This movie has a lot of depth, with no flashbacks to the Batman origin story, this is present day, and respects the material and the heavy headiness of chaos theory and moral conumdrums. (I'll write more later)

Iron Monkey

Iron Monkey rules. There really isn't anyway around it. It's sort of a Kung Fu Robin Hood. Fun story and great fight sequences make this a must watch for any genre fan. If Pan's Labyrinth was a fairy tale for adults, This is an adventure story for adults.

In Bruges
In Bruges (2008)

½

A lot less funny and a lot darker than the trailer would make you believe, it's still a respectable hitman banter film. It deals with something that most movies about professional killers don't deal with, which is guilt and what happens when there's an accident. Oddly enough, it was kind of touching, and not when it was trying to be. It was definately worth a watch.
