Well No country was interesting.. I just Personally didn't like it.. ..I refuse to spoil the movie. :puck:

But I will say it reminds me of suspect zero, ichi the killer, memento and the house of sand and fog... Not from a content perspective or plot or genre... just in the sense that they give you mind puzzles, unanswered questions or an incomplete ending.

That's true, the Coen Bros don't spell everything out for you. I didn't have a problem with that.
I can't support your comparisons though.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

http://imdb.com/title/tt0339271/ Kung Pow 2

http://imdb.com/title/tt1142966/  Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland

http://imdb.com/title/tt0478087/ 21. Not sure how good it's going to be but it's based on the awsome true story of the card counting MIT students who go to vegas to beat the casino.


Edit: Just watched Sweeny Todd. Amazing! What a great film. One of the best films I've seen in a long time. Once I adjusted to the musical aspect I was totally engrossed. Amazing production, beautiful score's, some very violent scenes and a great ending!

Edit: I watched Eastern Promises last night and loved it. Not only was it an amazing drama but the steam room scene when Viggo fights the two guys naked is one of the most intense scenes I've ever seen on film.

Doesn't seem all that good to me. And I like the original Django a lot.

Apparently it's about an autistic child who just has great reflexes/can memorize fighting moves.  High probability of being shit for story,  but the fighting looks nice  :guts:

Is the Chocolate really the best they could do? I'm assuming something's lost in translation, like, maybe in Thai "chocolate" sounds really threatening.

I think it refers to the candy we see her eating or something equally trivial. Since she's an autist, maybe she's kicking all those guys' asses because they didn't want to give her a chocoball.

In any case it's looking good and I'll be waiting for it. I can endure a shitty story for the sake of "REAL INJURIES". :guts:

I'm looking forward to a film festival here in Belgrade (aptly named FEST  :guts:), and was wondering if someone can give me a heads up (spoiler free would be a boon!) on a couple of titles I'm considering:
Takashi Miike's "Sukiyaki Western Django";
Masahiro Kobayashi's "Ai no yokan" or "The Rebirth";
Robert Thalheim's "Am Ende kommen Touristen" "In the end the tourists come" (not sure with the english title since I'm translating from serbian).
The list of films I'd like to see is getting rather big (plus a little overlapping) so I'm trying to cut it down and the three mentioned above are the ones I know least about. looking forward to some input from film buffs out there, thanks!

Going to a film festival huh? Luckyyy! All i can say is I've been waiting for Sukiyaki Western Django for a while cuz I'm a huge Italian western fan. The original Django is awsome starring Franco Nero.  Hundreds of guys die, prostitutes fight in mudd, and there's the original ear slicing scene.  Also one of it's many sequels Django Kill..if you can stand shoot! Is another great movie.  I'd also recommend The Great Silence, Keoma and all Sergio Leoni's obviously.

Edit: Did anyone see that movie "The Ten". IT was fucking hilarious

So, I can't remember if anyone's mentioned this (and I haven't bothered to look for it), but I just got back from one of the greater films released, well, last year. The Diving Bell & the Butterfly (Le Scaphandre et le papillion) is an incredible, emotional film and a visual treat. It successfully makes you see the world differently. The shots through Jean-Dominique's (He was the editor of the French Magazine Elle) eyes are astoundingly well done.
Though it may sound like a gimmick, and a bit hokey, these are often times the most beautiful moments of the film. It's nothing like that joke of a film, The Lady in the Lake, somehow Schnabel and his cinematographer Kaminsky make it work.

It's a very sad film, a little depressing (i guess, though I always take joy in technique), but has it's moments of laughter and a rising of spirits.

You (meaning everyone) should go see it.

(I apologize for my terribly written review/recommendation)

Oh, here's the trailer
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Looks horribly cheesy to me, and it's like a mix of several classic flicks (Escape from New York/LA, Mad Max) but without necessarily being any good. I'll wait for reviews before considering watching it.

I don't have anything against chick action hero's in general, but I think this movie would have better chances with someone like Clive Owen as the lead.

Looks horrible.  It's as if they can't decide which to rip off more, Mad Max or 28 Days Later...

Something I must see:

Pineapple Express

Another one from Shllamalong, The Happening:

Nope, it's not about Yves Klein or performance art.

Looks better than the last one. However, I don't particularly buy Wahlberg as a high school teacher...... Zooey's in it, though.
