"Man of the Year" was decent, but the last real good movie I saw was "The Departed."

So Good.

I think my fave film that I've seen in quite awhile was A Very Long Engagement by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. This film was quite possibly the most beautiful picture I've ever seen, and I haven't been able to get it out of my head for quite awhile since it's been nearly a month since I first watched it.

I'm looking forward to December when Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth comes out, it looks to be fantastic.

Anyone know when this is supposed to be out on DVD? I checked Amazon, but all they said was that it's currently unavailble.

I really enjoyed Lucky Number Slevin.

Brotherhood Of The Wolf is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time.  My roomie says it's just to freakin weird for him.

Serenity.  I can't believe my geek radar didn't pick Firefly and Serenity earlier.  Now I really need to rent Firefly.

Haven't been able to see a lot of movies I would have liked to (e.g. Thank You For Smoking, An Incovenient Truth, Children of Men) but I did see The History Boys today. A pleasantly entertaining film and sure to be a British classic.

Brotherhood Of The Wolf is one of the greatest movies ever. You have to watch it in French though with English subtitles, if you watch the English overdubbed bullshit it's horrible.

Felix_: Pan's Labyrinth is already out here and we're going this Saturday to watch it. Ever since I saw the poster in the cinema I've been craving to watch it. Same deal with my friends. It's truly amazing if just a poster can make me want to see a movie this bad (I've never even seen the trailer, I don't know what it's about, please don't tell me :-D)

Last movie I saw was The Illusionist, and it was pretty damn good. Edward Norton is always sublime, and this movie... Geez. I just fully recommend it, I can't even say anything about it, words would make no justice and I'd spoil something if I did, I know it :)

I can't stand the idea that you people will actually get the opportunity to see a masterpiece such as Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D and I won't.

I sincerely doubt they'll bring that feature down to Mexico. I'll just have to cope with it :(

The last movie I saw in the cinema was Little Miss Sunshine, which whilst not as quirky as it thought/hoped it was it was still an excellent movie though. Deemed as a "feel good movie", though I'm not sure I would agree. Yes there are farcical moments and yes there are heartwarming moments, but overall it left me feeling more depressed coming out than I was going in.... :|

i just watched this the night before last. i really liked the way that it ended because it wasn't cheesey. there were funny bits and sad bits and i'd say it was a feel good movie.
maybe it hits home better if your family is fucked up too because then you get to go "well at least it wasn't this bad".
there was one scene where i laughed so much that i started coughing.

Saw the Prestige in theaters recently and it was definitely above-average enjoyable.  Before that, Lost in Translation was one that just made me genuinely smile throughout the movie, and say wow aloud afterwards.

Sofia Coppola has Marie Antoinette out now, but I've heard it's not as good...anyone seen it?

Amen to Trainspotting.

I just finished Pulp Fiction: Linear Edition, which I had had high hopes for, but it in no way improves upon the original version.

I seen it. I thought it was hilarious, though it did drag a bit towards the end. It takes a little patience, and it would help if you knew your history. I don't really know how to explain it or gauge whether someone would like it or not. For most of the movie it seems like nothing is really happening... which is sort of the point of the film. I'd reccomend it, but you might not want to gamble your money.

Actually, i think that is the last good movie i saw. No, wait. I saw half of The Mod Squad today. I really dug the high-contrast cinematography there, though the film itself was nothing special. An yesterday i saw Mission Impossible 3. That would have been terrible, except i was making fun of it VERY LOUDLY the entire time.

Saw Children of Men last night.

It was a really good film, and there are some moments and sequences in the film that are really well made and cinematically solid. The story line is fantastic and has some great surprises, you'll find yourself going "What" "No!" "Oh God" throughout this film.

See it, it's worth the money.

I just came home from watching Pan's Labyrinth.

What can I possibly say about this movie... No words could make justice. It's absolutely amazing from beginning to end. There are just NO words in this world to describe it. Guillermo del Toro and all the cast made an incredible performance, I'm so damn proud that Del Toro is Mexican. I'm still in a state of shock, this movie's just gorgeous. The best piece of art I've ever seen without doubt. It completely debunked my favorite movie ever. This is now my favorite movie. I don't even need to think it twice.

I have to think this through, there's just... Jesus. You have to see it, dammit.

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

If you go into the theatre forgetting all social morals and hoping to enjoy the pure satirical essence of the movie, you will LOVE this one.  Hilarious.

Seconded...I really enjoyed this movie.  It has Batman, and Wolverine, and Alfred, andDavid Freaking Bowie!

Seriously, Bowie as Tesla was awesome.  Even if the movie had sucked, that would have made it worth going.

I really dug Little Miss Sunshine quite a lot.

i liked little miss sunshine as well, but only in part. at times i thought it tried too hard. sometimes it was just too quirky for its own good. the acting was consistently good but some of the scenes overdid it a tad, i thought. as for movies i enjoyed, i recently rewatched roman coppolla's horribly under rated CQ, and i saw gold raiders, the best bad movie ever made. hands down.

i concur. not sure about it being an all time favourite, but still....just wow.

i also saw the prestige lately, but i doubt anything else this year will eclipse Pan's Labyrinth for me.

The last movie I actually saw at the cinema was Borat, which i'm putting firmly in the "funny-but-could-well- have-been-appreciated-as-a-DVD-at-home" column. I think a good way to rate movies is by the extent to which you think it was worth watching them at the cinema. Regardless of bigger size, nicer sound etc., was it just enjoyable enough to warrant the pay-out?

The Prestige, to my mind, really was worth it. As stated before, Bowie as Tesla was effin' awesome, and the concept of warring magicians was just cool. Sure, it had its problems (as have most of the 'otherwise awesome' movies i've seen lately - The Departed, Little Miss Sunshine etc.), but it was a lot of fun, too.

Just saw The Road to Guantanamo. I was really shocked to find what the movie was about. I haven't heard much of their story, and I haven't seen the movie advertised much either.

Literally, the last movie I went to see in theaters was Garden State. This is as much a reflection of my own pathetic social life as my "OMG MUST GO SEE!!" drive to see modern movies. In short, I don't have any. I always wait for the DVD release.

Anyway, last movie I saw that I thought was actually good?? It would either be Silent Hill or Lost Highway. I don't remember what order I watched them in, and I was getting progressively drunker at the time.

Lucky Number Sleven was pretty good.  I hardly ever buy dvd's anymore - I just Netflix what I want to see - but I'll probably end up picking this one up, just so I can watch it again whenever I want.

The last one I saw was Friends With Money

I realize this is in response to an old post but WHAT!?

Friend with Money was marketed as a comedy.  It was only a show about how fucked up that group of friends was.  Worst movie I've seen in quite some time.
If it had been marketed as a melo-drama it would have been mediocre.

The Departed was great, but it left me walking out of the theatre with an even bigger potty mouth and intense shock.

Marie Antoinette was pretty good in my opinion; I guess it helped that I've read her biography so I knew everything that was going to happen. It got kinda slow at times, but the costumes and setting were fantastic.

And I can't help but admit it - Casino Royale really did it for me. I think I have this new thing for extremely buff men with intense blue eyes. Besides, an actually flawed James Bond? Priceless.

And Borat? Three words.

Funniest. Movie. Ever.

At least for people who aren't morally or politically or religiously uptight.

I need to see this movie so so so badly. Stupid Italy.  <3 Bowie as Tesla. I was so excited when I first heard he'd be doing that.

The last good movie I saw was V for Vendetta, rather late. I don't get to see movies in theaters very often.

I saw Snakes on a Plane twice, though, before I left the US. zomgbestmovieof2006.
