    I had evening with Twilight stars:D
    Remember me 60/100 - with Robert Pattinson, who was actually quite good, lovely Emilie de Ravin (Claire from Lost) and Chris Cooper, Pierce Brosman and Lena Olin. The movie is very heartwarming and it has incredibly shocking twist. All in all, it wasn't exceptional, but I'd recommend it - good drama.
    The Runaways 80/100 - with Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning as Joan Jett and Cherie Currie. The review is already on WTM:)

    OhGodNo! This is the #1 from Palahniuk's 100!
    @Razzomega
    I'm a survivor. Yesterday I saw much better for the second time.
    I... watch... this.



    I discovered this jewel in 1998 Cannes fest.
    They wanted me to seat through a Theo Angelopoulos flick but I wanted emotions.
    This movie is a must-see!

    Watched latelly
    "Nothing" from Vincenzo Natali - mouha, some good and interesting ideas but way too stupid, didn't make me laugh :(
    "Away we go" from Sam Mendes - sweet but overall desapointing (got bored)
    "Kitchen Stories" from Bent Hamer - really great! Loved it
    "Memories of Matsuko" from Tetsuya Nakashima - Japanese cinema never stops to amaze me, this movie is wonderful! Creative, funny, sweet, cruel, sad and visually it is a non stop party :)
    "Sombre" from Philippe Grandrieux - loved the atmosphere of this movie, although it is a bit slow, starts to really be interesting in the middle in my opinion. Intense and dark with a very very good sound track. Will watch more from this director for sure :)

    @Razzomega, Béla Tarr, I have been trying to motivate my self to watch Sátántangó for years. I started it, twice, I know it is probably very good but it is so slow and 450mns long, you need a lot of courage to watch this lol

    @Chrisy: I just mentioned those two names, because I know it is some of the big boys who makes some really hard movies to watch. Yeah you should need a lot of courage to watch Satans Tango, I have only seen some takes from that movie and wow it's slow. But I think "Sleep" by Andy Warhol is harder to watch.. 321 minutes where you are see a man sleeping :P!
    The only Béla Tarr movie I have seen is Werckmeister Harmonies, which only takes 145 minutes and that is more manageable.

    Mouha, too much hype kills the hype
    Didn't feel for this one, not one minute of it, I actually refrained my self from stopping it before the end. Ok it is a low budget indie, so I can give it credits for this but didn't find it original, not original at all! It had deja vu written all over it : in the story, the vibe, the technics... everything. And the slayer story or sort of, I felt I was watching a mix of buffy the vampire with the Matrix and City of Angels (and I dont say this in a good way) . Trying wayyyy too hard to be hype but miserably failed. Sorry for the people who I read here and there were blown away by this film, I do not understand it and will try to forget it very fast ;)

    Oh, also watched The Human Centipede(first sequence)
    Dutch horror: yeahhh!
    Well no, it sucks! But at least it made me laught :) A killer who's speciality is to connect is alive victims via their digestive systems, how can that not be funny lol

    Thanks to the world cup I didn't see much. Except for these:

    A chinese ghost story 3 (funny in an amateuristic way)
    State of play (what can I say...)
    G.I. Joe: The rise of the Cobra (Lot of action, and nothing more to say)
    The Weatherman (I like the throwing of fast foor, in a way)

    'Say' and 'way' seem to sum it all up.

    I saw Town Creek from Joel Schumacher last week, dreading the end of "The Tudors" and looking for other ways to see Henry Cavill. The movie was absolutely awful even worse than Schumacher's last - "number 23" and what is most astonishing is the fact Michael Fassbender, the same one from Inglourious Basteds and The Hunger was in this, not only he was there - he was undead nazi researcher. The only pros of the film were his performance, the prologue and mr Cavill shirtless. I think even fans of gore wouldn't enjoy the film, but I might be wrong

    Children of Leningradsky. Shocking documentary about children living in the Moscow railway station. What the hell we adults create for those children...
    Mermaids. Sweet and bitter about life. A nice story from 60 years of universal issues. Famous songs from those years still sounds great.
    Rebecca. Black and white films are full of the charm, impressing despite the passage of time. Great.

    The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.
    Interesting and entretaining film, but sometimes a bit boring imho. 7/10

    Kumo no Mukô, Yakusoku no Basho (Beyond the Clouds - The Promised Place in our Early Days).
    Another great work of Makoto Shinkai's (yeah I guess I should have watched it before Byôsoku 5cm, but I couldn't). The story isn't as sweet as Byôsoku's, but the visuals are as awesome as. 9/10

    I saw Mr Nobody with Jared Leto, very good movie, but the ending was disappointing. Insanely complex film, I'm writing the review but it's hard to write about ti and not forget all the important things :) It's like Amelie, mixed with Butterlfly Effect and Benjamin Button, I'd give it 90/100:)

    I didn’t miss the opportunity to watch ENTER THE VOID while being in Paris,
    and what can I say: It was a unique experience.

    I brought 4 friends (who had never heard of Gaspar Noé) along for the ride and they were as confused as I was.

    Some thoughts:
    > It is really long
    > It is really hard to watch, hard to stay focused (mostly because of Noé’s crazy camera movements,
    which he repeats over, and over, and over, and over ...)
    > It has some "never seen before" scenes which were awesome

    In the end I still prefer Irreversiblé over ETV, it kind of deals with same overall plot,
    but has a more dense story.

    And I don’t know if it was me, or the cinema, or Noé, but the whole film was rather blurry,
    especially the 3d sequences.

    I was at the Neuchatel International Fantastic Film Festival this weekend and watched

    Tetsuo: The Bullet Man aka Tetsuo 3
    The story wasn't convincing until the end, but the pictures were just breathtaking. Especially together with the great soundtrack and sound effects.

    Enter the Void
    I second naut, it is a unique experience. The movie is too long and the ending is foreseeable quite too early. But what a great film. Since I was on a waiting list (yes, the movie was sold out and only about 6 people left the theatre during the movie) I had to sit in the first row. I almost got seasick during some scenes. Awesome cinematography and no noticeable cuts. That's a movie you'll have to see in cinema, it will lose much of its power on an ordinary tv set. I must say the trip to Neuchâtel definitely was worth it.

    Prince of Persia: I'm a very big fan of the games, and I noticed they try to stay as true to the games as possible. And I have to say that it worked. Enjoyed the movie very much.
    Fido: Man that movie was awesome! Billy Connely as a housetrained zombie, I reccomend it!
    Shrek forever after: neh, not so funny. Only puss in boots was worth watching it
    Toy story 3: Watched it in 2D (as I do with every movie, I don't like 3D, sorry) It was enjoyable, not the best out of the 3.

    It had gigantic plot holes, but if you just focused on watching it, it was pretty great and given that I dislike Polanski and would love to see him in jail I was hopinh I'm gonna hate the movie, but unfortunetly it turned out to be very good, I'd give it 78/100 the review should be up in few hours :D
