Saw II (2005)

Liked it more than the first! Loved the scenes/story with Donnie Wahlberg and Tobin Bell.

There's a Psycho FOUR?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2002 I think)

Time to re-watch these. Plus I found the Stone in the Special Features to unlock SEVEN Deleted Scenes! This movie is really good; it strikes an excellent balance between entertaining kids and adults, just like the book (and largely because of the book, but the movie still deserves credit).

Harry Potter 1 & 2 frustrated me mainly because of Chris Columbus' direction. Those films really needed Gilliam or someone to really bring Hogwarts to life. But the Prisoner of Azkaban and the recent ones have been better i think

Ocean's 12 - not too bad imo. doesn't hit the levels the first one did, but very watchable indeed.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)
Constantine (2004 also I believe)

The third Harry Potter movie is very good. I still don't like the concept of time travel at all, but this movie manages to explain it about as well as I've ever seen. Constantine was good minus the dozen forced jump-scenes.

Bolt (2008)

Spoiler

I was pleasantly surprised by this film.  It started out a bit childish and I was worried that it would continue to be so.  I was also worried that it would be difficult to believe Bolt's discovery that the new world is the real world to be sincere (as there are problems with this in the "cave metaphor" seen in Plato's Republic which explores a similar concept,) however neither of these were an issue.  The film matured as it went on and it was easy to develop emotion for Bolt and Penny's relationship.  While the ultimate ending of the film was predictable, the path it took near the end certainly was not.  All in all, another worthwhile animated feature from Disney.

In comparison to Wall-E; Bolt was definitely a lot funnier, though the humor was mainly achieved through easy techniques, common to this kind of movie.  There was a very strong emotion for the main characters in Bolt, however it is one that is commonly explored throughout film and life in itself.  The same goes for the main conflict.  In Wall-E, the relationship between the two protagonists is incredibly interesting to watch unfold.  The breaking point is that the issues and conflicts taking place in Wall-E are much more numerous, unique and have deeper meaning.  I think this is where it will beat out Bolt for the sure win of Best Animated Picture.  Bolt is your standard Disney animated feature, which as usual, is a very nice movie, but Wall-E, even with it's errors and vices still has a depth that few great live action films dare to explore.  This is my conclusion.

Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
WALL-E (2008)

Watched SM Friday and WALL-E finished not more than an hour ago. Slumdog was a tremendous film, and the concept of story for WALL-E made it a great movie as well (the story itself was same old same old).

Not really Tyler... if you're talking about the romance in Wall-E then it went well beyond most standard love stories. Also, the idea that a robot can be more "human" than humans is quite interesting. Furthermore, Wall-E has to teach EVE how to love... since she doesn't understand what it is at first. The "Earth is covered in garbage and no one lives here anymore" is really an extremely minor part in the movie.

Dersu Uzala (1975) - Kurosawa at his best, a very gripping and highly recommended film
Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) - Excellent Woody Allen film
The Scalphunters (1968) - OK western
Sabrina (1954) Not near Billy Wilder's best, but still worth a watch

No Country For Old Men (2007, 2006, can't quite remember, I think '07)

This movie is very interesting, but I can't get away from calling it pretty boring. The choice of having no music ever throughout the film creates an interesting atmosphere for some scenes, but I wouldn't have minded a little tune here and there. The script is excellent overall (the villain's character is good), but the main point of the movie (the sheriff getting old and falling out of step with the world) was a tad overdone I thought. Still a great movie by and large.
