    Saw the Dark is Rising - boring and crap. You know a movie is bad when a talented actor like Christopher Eccleston can't be arsed to act. It's the first movie i have walked out of.

    Saw The Darjeeling Limited. It was okay, one of the more disjointed Wes Anderson films. I liked the Royal Tenenbaums better.

    This one had a lot of wtf-ness, but didn't come together until the end, by which it was entirely obvious what he was going for and some of the details were still just like, "what?" The weird things were never explained, he just threw them in there for random weirdness.

    And seeing Natalie Portman's 10-year-old boy body naked was entirely unnecessary and decidedly unsexy.

    ^Is it full nudity, you see everything? Or a 'blink-and-you-miss-it' moment?

    The Exorcist. I saw it was on AMC last night and decided to watch it, because I was bored.

    So I watched Primal Fear, Ed Norton was amazing. It was just a great cast all around with Alfre Woodard (she kicked ass) and Laura Linney and Frances McDormand (who I LOVE). Great movie.

    It's mostly just her butt, that still of her leaning against a dresser, if you've seen it, that's the most you see. But it still made me uncomfortable to see it. Actually I looked away, it may have been more. I just really didn't want to see her naked for some reason. Seemed gratuitous, like just another weird thing thrown in for the sake of weirdness. Cause I hope it wasn't trying to be sexy.

    I read that there's a little short film or trailer-length featurette that's "supposed" to be seen before this film to really get the full picture. I say "supposed" because I don't think it's included with the release, it's just something you can find online maybe? An odd little gimmick I guess.

    I watched Proof last night with Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins and Jake Gyllenhaal. It was nothing more than alright. My husband was like wow, I didn't realize that Gwenyth Paltrow was that homely looking.

    I just watched The Sure Thing, with John Cusack and Daphne Zuniga. I forgot I owned it, how pathetic is that. So I found it and watched it and I just can't get sick of this movie, ever. It's such a sweet little film. Everybody's good in it, and it's sort of like It Happened One Night skewed younger. Cusack, in particular, is wonderful. This is the movie I first developed a crush on him. Adorable.

    If you haven't seen it, you should. It will make you happy. It's very 80's, but good 80's. All the movies Cusack made in the 80's were good (except One Crazy Summer with Demi Moore, but that's Moore's fault).

    Hitler: The Rise of Evil. It's a TV series but was shown as a movie on Greek TV yesterday. I didn't like it very much. The period representation was fascinating and Robert Carlyle as Hitler was pretty good, I suppose. I just had trouble believing that Hitler was this full time frothing at the mouth psychotic always ordering around anyone near him. I've read historical reports that say he was quite charming* and I do find it hard to believe that he would have gotten as far as he did if he wasn't. So I just didn't have a very clear idea of what he was really like and of what happened in his early years and how he ascended to power. And a lot of the characters felt very formulaic.

    *I'm not any sort of Hitler fan, just saying that it would make sense for him not to be acting psycho and awful to everyone around him all the time or he would have gotten no followers at all.

    Actually, it makes sense that Hitler was a charming man. The Devil is often portrayed as a handsome, intelligent, quite genial and extremely charming gentleman. I mean, that's part of his seduction.

    Hitler reportedly also loved dogs, was very brave in WWI and loved by his fellow soldiers, loved music and was a vegetarian. I'm sure that the monster he was must have peaked through a few times but I wouldn't believe that he was acting batshit crazy non stop. Charming is creepier anyway.

    One thing I learnt from the movie and then read about it, was his relationship with his Geli Raubal, his niece (his half sister's daughter). I didn't know anything about that. Turns out Uncle Adolf couldn't keep his hands to himself. He'd also painted his niece nude several times (eewwww!). The girl committed suicide in 1931 or was possibly murdered by her uncle in a jealous rage .

    i liked that movie too, it's a funny little movie. tim robbins and nicolette sheridan are in it and also dr.mark green, with hair! (forgot the name of the actor, sorry). and yeah, great acting all around.

    I watched Disturbia last night. It's definitely not art, and the main characters are teens, but I actually liked it for what it was. I loved the lead actor, and I appreciated the fact that he actually displayed some cleverness (it was an "oh noes, I think my neighbour is a serial killer!" movie), rather than just running around mindlessly screaming.

    I also liked that he was interested in his new female neighbour because of her more interesting qualities and the fact that she read books, not just for her looks. If I had a teenage son I'd want him to see it.

    I've gotten my hands on Primal Fear and just need to get a chance to finally watch it!
