Code Unknown - 4/5

Michael Haneke's fractured film about people from different backgrounds and the problems caused by miscommunication between them.
Not one of Haneke's best but still a good film with some amazing sequences.

The Piano Teacher - 5/5

Psychological drama about a sexually repressed classical piano instructor in her mid 40's who leads a sad existence under the thumb of her domineering mother. Without a man in her life she finds release by engaging in self-mutilation and voyeurism. One day a young man falls for her and decides to enroll in her classes, but little does he know what lurks beyond his teacher's rigid surface. One of the best performances by the great Isabelle Huppert and one hell of a twisted movie from Michael Haneke.

After Hours

As other reviewers have noted, either you love Martin Scorsese's pitch black comedy very, very much, or you don't care for it at all. It's one of my favorite films, and by FAR my favorite film of Scorsese's.

Re: Last movie you watched

Away From Her - I'd heard this film described as a heartbreaking depiction of Alzheimer's disease. In reality, (from someone who's witnessed the condition firsthand) it barely scratched the surface of how devastating it can be. Still, it's a moving enough depiction of a man coming to terms with having the woman he loves slip away -- and the actions he takes so perhaps both can find happiness. Julie Christie got a lot of nominations for this, but I felt the actor who played her husband deserved more recognition. He carried the movie.

The Loved Ones - "Finger lickin' good?" Sorta. Twisted (if slight) torture flick tinged with enough wacky touches to make it entertaining. Loved the actress who played Princess (currently playing the whore with the chin tattoos on AMC's Hell On Wheels). For a debut feature, the director made a slick looking product. It would probably be a lot more fun to watch with a crowd then by yourself (as I did).

Inside - Lived up to it's bloody reputation... but otherwise, I was kind of indifferent. The DVD Talk review pretty much sums up my feelings on the movie. The CG reaction shots of the baby in the womb were kind of a clever touch. Did I mention the blood? I've seen so many brutal horror films that very little shocks me these days. The most this one did was cause me to experience a slight case of indigestion by the time the credits rolled.

Tourist Trap (1979)

The pacing is a bit rough, but worth it for all of the FX work.

The French Connection - 5/5

Suspecting that he may be tied into illegal activities, two New York City narcotics detectives keep an eye on a candy store owner who lives an extravagant lifestyle. The further they investigate they find out that he may be involved in a rumored large shipment of heroin coming into the US from overseas. One of the best gritty crime films of the 70's that captures the realism of a decaying New York City. Shot mostly on handheld and actual locations giving it a documentary feel, it is the first of William Friedkin's trifecta.

Dead Heat - Could have been a fun B-movie, but Treat Williams and Joe Piscopo have zero rapport with each other -- which is kinda vital for a buddy cop picture. Hell, if you told me their scenes were filmed separately and combined with split screen I would believe it. Thankfully, ol' Joe disappears for pretty much the last third of the movie. This horror comedy hits a lot of bum notes, but does feature one inventive sequence in a Chinese market where butchered animals are brought back to life.

My Bodyguard - Pleasant enough... felt kind of like an after school special. Plenty of future stars appeared in this one as teenagers: Matt Dillon, Joan Cusack, Jennifer Beals. Ruth Gordon has a supporting role as the bullied kid's feisty grandma. Her character serves little purpose other than to add a bit of color to the movie.

Airport 1975

This film is such an odd duck. It's awful in almost every imaginable way, yet it still manages to build some suspense in the last thirty minutes. There are so many parts of it that send me into howling laughter, but Helen's Reddy's song to Linda Blair is the highpoint. The ZAZ team skewered it so successfully in Airplane! that I laugh all the way through the scene. Best line: Charlton Heston's "Go do your thing, baby."

I was a sophomore in high school and took this girl I liked on date to this movie. You're right, this movie is a paradox. It's so bad it's almost poking fun at itself or the genre before there really was a genre. It also had so many big names and took itself very seriously. The end really did build suspense to where the audience was cheering at the climax. All-in-all, perfect material for future spoof movies.

Triangle (2009) - Surprisingly clever. After watching it twice, our heroine's actions toward the other passengers in an attempt to end her predicament can seem a bit questionable... but it raises plenty of questions for the viewer to ponder over. This one deserved a theatrical release in the states.

Fear Me Not - 4/5

Danish psychological drama about a middle-aged man who decides to take a leave of absence from his job in order to reevaluate his life with which he is unhappy. He decides to participate in a test for a new antidepressant to see if it helps him even though it might have risky side effects. Good film about how people can feel suffocated by the monotony of everyday life.

Sangre - 3/5

A government worker who keeps count of the people who enter a building, lives a smothered life with his jealous wife. Their daily lives consist of working, eating, having sex and watching soap operas. One day their routine is threatened when the man's daughter from his first marriage finds herself homeless and wants to move in with them. An interesting film that could have been better if it would have revealed more backstory of the major characters.

Re: Last movie you watched

^ Already added to my list.

Some Kind of Wonderful - Minor John Hughes... basically "Pretty in Pink" with the gender roles swapped. If not for Mary Stuart Masterson's memorable turn as a lovelorn tomboy, this movie wouldn't have done much for me.

Doghouse - Pretty sucky "Shaun of the Dead" knock-off co-starring Mickey Smith from Doctor Who. Some reviews have called it misogynistic... and yeah, there is a definite "He-Man Woman Haters Club" vibe going on among the boys. Their girlfriends are all pains in the ass and the ghouls they get to dispatch later in the flick are exclusively female.

Splinter - The feel of this seems derivative of other genre films (from "The Blob" to Carpenter's "The Thing") but quality acting and direction elevate a script that could have easily been a Sci-Fi Channel original movie.

Machete Kills (Netflix) - Machete In Space...love it (and the silly ways that were used to kill folks in the film)! Amber Heard was also a surprise in the film, sure she is nice on the eyes, but she also did a good job with her role in the film.
