    'sweetgrass' at the movies (there's a film festival going on). it's a documentary about sheep ranchers in montana driving their herd up to the absaroka-beartooth mountains to graze. gorgeous, intelligent, thought-provoking, funny and yes, riveting, despite the subject.
    5 out of 5 stars and highly recommended.

    from the slate.com review:
    Since the late 19th century, sheep ranchers in Montana have driven their herds into the Absaroka-Beartooth mountain range to graze on the summer grass. Sweetgrass (Cinema Guild), a gorgeous and contemplative documentary by Ilisa Barbash and Lucien Castaing-Taylor, accompanies the last-ever sheep drives into the Beartooth range. The film, culled down from 200 hours of footage, was nine years in the making, and that unhurried pace is reflected in the results. It's a movie that takes the viewer out of time, or rather places her in a different time, the cyclical time of herding and ranching, in which human and animal rhythms overlap and sometimes clash. Though Sweetgrass has moments of great beauty, the film is never nostalgic or idealizing about its human or ovine subjects. It shows the relationship of human and domesticated animal—and the relationship of both to nature—as a productive and symbiotic yet often brutal struggle.

    i love that movie. and the last 'real' cronenberg film since he was just a gun-for-hire on his last movies (eastern promises, history of violence)

    The Life Before Her Eyes.... I loved Evan Rachel Wood and the relationship she had with her teenage BFF Maureen. I hated the flip side with Uma being the adult ERW. Uma sucked so fucking bad in this movie. I swear! I've had to google this movie because parts are so convoluted. When I first watched it, I wasn't sure which one REALLY got shot in the school shooting. AND apparently, the whole fucking movie was just this girl's vision of what her life could have been.... This is a fairly old movie, so hopefully I'm not giving anything away that anyone doesn't already know. I only figured out bits and pieces as I was watching: The cross for the unborn with the name "Emma" on it and then her daughter being named Emma (which is a bit misogynistic given that the girl had an abortion at 17 and is apparently more consumed by guilt than we are led to believe at the time). Apparently, the title gives away more information than the movie itself. It's a teenage "slut" dying on the floor of a bathroom (school shooting) future ideal of what life could've/would've/should've been - and even then, her life STILL fucking sucked.

    well..because Colin is kissing up on another guy..that lucky actor.

    I guess it is sweet torture or something. *sigh*

    Such an odd little movie.

    It is an odd movie, but I have watched it several times. I enjoy it as well, and I am not even sure why.

    Big Blue Sea

    If you like man-eating sharks and big explosions and people trapped underwater, this movie is not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. I loved the dude with the mouthy parrot. "Keep it up and there will be tiny little drumsticks on the menu tonight."

    Grimm Love

    It's the based on the true story of a case of cannibalism in Germany. Armin Meiwes was a man who wanted to eat another human. His victim was a man who wanted to be eaten. All in all, it was just a sad story. The only interesting thing about it was that Armin Meiwes claims there are more than 800 cannibals in Germany. It's some underground society of people who eat human flesh and people who are willing to be their victims. How weird is that?

    The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Strange movie. It was nice seeing Heather Ledger in his last movie, but it wasn't the greatest movie or what I was expecting. Neat idea for a movie, but it just seemed to drag on and never really developed for me. It did work well having Jude, Colin and Johnny fill in and help finish up the movie. I was wondering how they would do that, but with the storyline it did work out fine.

    Hot Tub Time Machine. One of those stupid sex, drugs and rock and roll comedy movies, with a few sets of tits thrown in the mix . But it had a few moments that were funny. I personally did have to the laugh at the Motley Crue tie-in. Wasn't expecting that.

    I've always wondered how much Gilliam had to alter his movie and its ending due to Ledger's death

    Just watched Micmacs, a French movie about a man whose life was heavily affected by weapons manufacturers and goes about enacting playful revenge. It reminded me of Imaginarium in parts - the stylized quirkiness and ragtag group of vagrants/friends living in strange environments. That's where the similarities end, though.

    Micmacs was fun. Completely impossible in real life, of course, but that's to be expected. One of the pivotal scenes in the movie struck a sour note. It was what the movie was leading up to, but it had a very dark, political tone that stuck out like a sore thumb against the cheery playful feel of the rest of the movie.

    Saw V

    if you've seen any of the other 4, you've pretty much seen it. Same old same old. Except maybe not as good as any of the other 4 to be honest.

    As much as I love the Coens,this's got to be their weakest movie.The script basically is interesting,but the whole storytelling felt boring and had no tension.Clooney was annoying as hell,Shitt-surprisingly bearable,only Malkovich tried to save it,but was insufficient.

    Leaves Of Grass
    A beautiful,quirky yet poignant story of what I'd call an improvised family reunion.Edward Norton is adorable in both roles - as the estranged professor and as his "genius" weed-growing brother.

    Inception - meh, not impressed. Too little chemistry between DiCaprio and Cotillard, too much fighting... It could have been more subtle and dreamlike...

    Interview with the Vampire - embarrassing. Just plain embarrassing. I'm all the more disappointed as to many people I know, it's a mythical film.

    Really? I don't know anyone that thought the film was good. I know many people liked the book, but not the movie.

    The Weight of Water- I'd seen it before. It's good. I love Sarah Polley.

    I was surprised that I actually liked this movie. The whole storyline cracked me up,...all that for a boob job. lol And I loved seeing Brad Pitt play a dumb shit, it suits him! But Malkovich really stood out for me,...loved his character.
