Borat was the best movie ever. Even better than Snakes on a Plane.

Someone please kidnap me and force me to watch them awsome movies.

I saw lord of war…again, it may not be a new film, but it's so damn good I watch it regually.
Of course you will. All intelligent beings dream. Nobody knows why.

Also, tell random people they are awsome! it helps!

IS this topic about new movies? ‘ cause I haven’t seen much of the newer movies for a while.

The best movies I've seen lately include eXistenZ, The Bourne Supremacy, Lost in Translation and Being John Malkovich.

But I'm will be watching the movies Children of Men, Science of Sleep and Tenacious D: Pick of Destiny in the future.

And tonight Toy Story 2 will be on Dutch tv, so I'm also happy with that :)

I've watched “Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker” more than eight times in my life. That is undoubtably the best movie ever.

I saw The Brothers Grimm yesterday, and it was a better film than I thought it was going to be. Terry Gilliam is a very underrated director.

Haven't seen any new movies lately. I hope to see Borat and the new Bond movie soon.

I watched the ‘Departed’ yesterday, with Nicholson, Damon and DiCaprio. Really interesting movie, good acting. I recommend.

well, I very recently saw “Stuck on You”, and enjoyed it (mainly the Truman Capote references! one of my favorite authors!!)
And “Little Miss Sunshine” was great, in the “add it to my top 10 favorites of all time” kind of way.
oh, and I don't know if it counts because it's from like '41, but I saw “The Philadelphia Story” recently and loved it! Jimmy Stewart=hawt! (even if he was crazily anti-communist in real life.)

Last Friday I went to see “Stranger Than Fiction” the new movie with Will Ferrel and Emma Thompson. I laughed quite a bit and even cried a little.

Tonight I'm going to see the new Bond movie.

Casino Royale is teh awesome. Sometimes you think the movie is over, but it isn't. Happens near the end twice IIRC. Still, it's an amazing movie. Bond is more rugged and fatally accurate in this movie, and it felt kinda strange with the abscence of Q and his gadgets, but it still felt Bond. There's no out-of-the-ordinary weapons or plots(Golden Gun, the Golden eye, etc.) in this movie, which made it feel like somebody like James Bond could exist.

Daniel Craig is an amazing James Bond, superb movie.

I've yet to see Borat!. I'm planning to though.

Casino Royal is awesome. It's like there's a trend in Hollywood where they decided to start making action movies good again. “We've been making bad action movies for a while now. Let's make some good ones and see how that goes over”.

I recently saw and enjoyed Oldboy and Lady Vengeance. Some good, violent, cinematically intelligent and disturbing fun!

I fiannly wtached Nepolian Dynamite. On DVD… Had to try it in 3 different plays before the damn thing world WORK!
It was quite a funny little comedy, the plot was as loose as hell… it reminded me of that movie Talking Heads made in the 80's… It's like a bunch of interesting and funny anecdotes they they just threw together into some kind of order to make it seem like it had a plot.
But the characters were funny, very real sorts of people. Cartoonish, but still so real.
I also love the way it's set “now” but as if everyone and everything was still stuck in 1985.

That sort of Retro thing is pretty big at the moment isn't it? Lots of old cartoons, style and music about… Lots of bands pretending to be all 80's…

I just saw Casino Royale and I agree. Craig IS Bond! Casino Royale had an awesome plot, great acting, and a few really brutal and amazing action sequences.

And best of all, none of those hokey gadgets were in the movie! All realistic and totally badass!

Craig's Bond > Brosnan's Bond > Dogshit > Roger Moore's Bond

True dat. I saw it on opening day with my friends, and it blew us all away. If you can't walk into Borat and laugh your ass off, something is wrong with you. Like seriously, you'd best be getting to a doctor, post haste. Even my teachers from high school have seen it, so come on guys. xD

eva green on casino royale…hawt.
i like the way she frowns for some reason.
i recently caught this movie called “dreamers” on IFC and I'm guessing they are playing it cause eva green is in there. she's a good actress and is probably gonna be pretty popular soon. I also bought kingdom of heaven DVD…kinda weird how eva green is in almost every media i've watched lately.

I saw Casino Royale right after Thanksgiving and I would have to agree it was a pretty satisfying movie. It didn't try so hard to be like the other movies and seemed to go for an approach more like the books. You wouldn't think it from pictures of him online (for some reason, I just find he doesn't look like what I'd expect Bond to look like), but Daniel Craig did a pretty convincing job in the film. The action sequences were pretty spectacular, prticularly that beginning chase scene. It was amazing they could get that level of acrobatics without making it look like the actors were using wires (and there were a couple of places where they had to be). I also like any movie that humanizes a character which for so long has been a pretty 2D stereotype. I hope the next movie with this Bond takes the same approach.

Everytime my boyfriend and I decide to go see a movie we go with Casino Royale in mind, but so far have yet to see it.
The first time, we ended up seeing Stranger Than Fiction which was pretty good ^_^
But it had been between that, Casino Royale and Deja Vu. I really didnt want to see Deja Vu that bad, so we ruled it out. Stranger than Fiction was the latest one of the two which meant more time for me to spend with my friend so that was a big plus for that one.

The second time, we saw Borat which was kind of odd because neither of us had expressed interest in the movie, but only jokingly mentioned it. In fact, when I first saw the trailers, I thought “Why would I go see that?” because I had seen Da Ali G movie back when it first came out and thought it was kinda stupid. When we got to the movie theater, I told my boyfriend to pick between Borat and Casino Royale, so we ended up seeing Borat.
(its kinda like the fried mac n cheese at TGI Fridays. We only mentioned it as a joke but when we went there one day, I told him to pick an appetizer and he picked that.)
Borat was hilarious. I mean, it wasnt the most ultimate best movie ever made like some of you say, but it was pretty damn funny.

But ummm, those were the only two movies Ive seen lately that were good.
I saw You, Me, and Dupree the other day and it was lame. Just another movie about how some idiot guy is losing his girlfriend or wife or family because he's a self absorbed workaholic and needs some outrageous situation to help him realize that. *YAWN* (The Break Up and Click are the same way.) Well, I guess Stranger than Fiction almost fits that category too, but it has unique/clever qualities to redeem it.

And tonight I saw United 93….. talk about a depressing movie…. It was good, but I dont think I'd go out of my way to watch it again.

Oh, speaking of depressing, after Thanksgiving I saw The Fountain. I didnt like it. It was boring and too artsy. I couldnt even feel bad for them because of that. I also feel like the trailers were deceiving as to what kind of story it really was.

uhhh, old ones that I tend to like.
Well, Im a big fan of Trey Parker and Matt Stone, so definitely I like Cannibal the Musical ( the cheeziest and my favorite of their films), Orgazmo, South Park BLU, and Team America (not so much Baseketball though).
I also love Clockwork Orange.






I am FS2 champion! w00t!!
