Recently read the book this film was adapted from, absoloulty incredible read, so awful and so touching, i recommend it to everyone as it has this amazing humility and voice that speaks so honestly about the whole War thing...and its still just as applicable to my generation as it was to my grandfathers. Great read.

oh and film i last watched? Waynes World 2

I read the book a few years back, and I have to say, I was both amazed and disturbed. The portion particularly in which the soldier is stuck in the fox hole with the dying enemy blew me away. I remember it lasting for several pages. I'm afraid the movie didn't do this scene justice. Sorry, Brian. I know you like this movie, but I should have watched it before I read the book. I probably would have like it more in that case.

Raging Bull - (d. M. Scorsese, 1980)



Randomly visiting for now
Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster (2004). This was suprisingly very good watching considering I wasn't really a fan of them, it's more a documentary of how the band breaks apart and reforms. There's something insanely cool about seeing the behind the scenes look at these rock legends, right to the nitty gritty of alcoholism and betrayal

It's probably been done before but was refreshingly unique for me 4/5.



The People's Republic of Clogher
Man On Fire (2004, Tony Scott)

2.5/5

Solid revenge flick (almost) ruined by Little Bro Tony's flashy direction, and the feeling that he's watched Big Bro Ridley's Gladiator and Hannibal one too many times...

Denzel saves this, for me.

I cant believe you guys closed (locked) the old Movie Tab
There's no real difference in loading times, trust me (im a cursed dial-up), it's still one page at a time and a true mofo can put up with it! damn shame to lose the original, that being said and I doubt you'll change it back....

Meet the Fockers
Team America
Blade: Trinity

I totally agree, that scene summed up the whole theme of the book and highlighted the most poingnant part for me. I actually found that part really emotional, as Paul looks into the enemy soldiers eyes and sees the true fear that his causing him, its awful. I'm gonna make sure i watch the film, but from what ive heard it wont live up to it, but ill give it a shot.

Hmmm, I just watched this, and I have to say it was almost unbearable, and any respect I had left for the band is now gone. James Hetfield is without a doubt the biggest crybaby whine-ass I have ever seen, and Lars Ulrich is in close second. Whine, cry, piss about, whine, cry.... what a waste of time. So....

Some Kind of Monster



On a better note I also watched....

Raging Bull


The best period piece I have ever seen, period. My girlfriend and I just couldn't get over how this film seems to have been made in the period it depicts. Every character was perfect, piece of clothing, every car, and the production design...just incredible.

One of the best films ever made.

Film Review by Sedai



Hello Salem, my name's Winifred. What's yours
Mean Girls - i thought this was pretty decent, not as funny as anticipated but it did ok, i expect big things from Rachel McAdams, super bitch supremo in this movie

I love Raging Bull, it's one of my favorites of all time. Was this your first viewing?

Let me see if I get this right... You didn't like the film because it made Metallica look bad?

They had temporarily escaped the factories, the warehouses, the slaughterhouses, the car washes - they'd be back in captivity the next day but
now they were out - they were wild with freedom. They weren't thinking about the slavery of poverty. Or the slavery of welfare and food stamps. The rest of us would be all right until the poor learned how to make atom bombs in their basements.

Eulogy, an independent film with Ray Romano in it. That fact alone made this movie very intriguing to me. But it turned out not to have much to offer. I love Ray's show but hopefully when it is over he will not resign himself to being in a slew of mediocore movies (welcome to mooseport).
