Epic of Storytelling
An amazing epic of storytelling.
Like Unleashed, this tale masterfully combines both martial arts action with compelling drama. Jet Li really can act! This is among the best I've seen. Compare it to Hero.
On a sad note, Li says he has nothing left to say in Martial Arts films, but will continue to do action films. I understand he has a police action/drama coming out opposite Jason Statham, so there's more action to come.
This was a fine way to go out in style. I only wish he had more stories to tell.

One of the best films EVER
WOW. One of the greatest movies I have EVER - EVER seen.
Absolutely LOVED it! Before the opening credits were done I was glued to the screen.
It's a Sci-Fi thriller - AND edge of your seat Whodunnit. Incredible.
I wish'd it would never end.
Lucy Liu is a throwaway role. Anyone could have played it. The lead actor, Jeremy Northram was the perfect geeky guy.
This movie appeals to me who loved War Games, Sneakers, and Track Down.

Nochnoy dozor (2004)
Good film. VERY stylistic. Epic Story
I liked this film a lot.
Be sure to watch the Russian version (which is the B Side of the DVD), which is mostly in English anyways, but the subtitles are very good, and actually part of the movie.
This is an epic-like story. I'll be first in line for the sequels as soon as they come out.
Lots of action. Very stylistic. Yes, it's a good vs. evil story, but it certainly didn't FEEL like one.
Plenty of editing and fast cuts. Story was spelled out from the get-go, and was not hard to follow.

The Wicker Man (1973)
Great Suspense Thriller!
Slow start becomes a film that keeps getting better as it goes on.
I was on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what happened next. WOW. It just kept getting better and better as it went on.
Now I REALLY have to see Nicolas' Cage version when it comes out this year (2006).
This version had a lot of female nudity (they're pagans, remember?) I figure they'll take that out of the new version. Probably change the ending, too.
All in all, this is a GREAT thriller.

Running Scared (2006)
Unoriginal title. Great film.
Unoriginal title aside, this is a GREAT film.
Fast, frenetic NON-stop action-packed, twisty-turny complicated storyline.
Paul Walker can act?! Wow. The kid Cameron Bright turns in another winning performance. Perhaps the next Haley Joel Osment or Dakota Fanning.
Extremely violent, coarse language, throw in some nudity and sex.. This film is NOT for everyone.
I think Roger Ebert said it best when he said there was everything here including the kitchen sink. Wayne Kramer is going to be a writer/director to watch!
Heck, the DVD even has DTS 6.1 sound!

The Break-Up (2006)
Not very funny, but chokes you up. Oh, and Aniston's bare butt.
This movie is NOT very funny. A couple of brief humorous parts, but this is definitely NOT a comedy.
Now, it DOES make up for it by having a few VERY touching choke-you-up scenes.
This movie is also NOT the predictable Hollywood fare you see all the time. Far from it.
RENT it only to see Favreau and Vaughn yuck it up.. They're still a pair MADE in heaven.
Oh and yes, you get to see Jennifer Aniston's bare naked butt, albeit slightly out of focus.

Hotter than most modern porn films
Hotter than most modern porn films, and more violent than most films ever. LOTS of EXPLICIT sex and violence. Not nearly as graphic as Irreversible, though. Not for everyone, to be sure.
Decent enough story carried by all the explicit nudity (male and female). Shows penetration, condoms, and anal invasion with a firearm.
Both actresses are enough to please everyone. One with medium breasts, the other very skinny.
Mix up Thelma and Louise (which this is much better, by the way), Kalifornia, and Young Guns, you might have this.

Brokeback Mountain (2005)
Anne Hathaway topless!
Good movie. Slow, character study. Beautiful scenery.
I thought I was very open-minded, but several scenes really made me uncomfortable. Afterwards, I thought about why. I'd seen male "gay" interaction on screen before, but not like this. These two were very much IN LOVE, and I was not prepared for it.
This is NOT the "Best Picture" of the year, but very decent.
Anne Hathaway has shown she's all grown up and not uncomfortable with nudity here (and in Havoc). Michelle Williams also is bare breasted.
Finally, Ang Lee has shown he still has incredible talent, despite the lackluster Hulk film.

Predictable Thriller (Spoiler Warning)
I was hating the main characters for cheating on their spouses, when all of a sudden it became a great, albeit predictable, thriller, with great acting.
Clive Owen proves himself yet again as extremely talented.
Jennifer Aniston, while still sporting a lot of her Friends character, is stretching herself, playing a very subdued, more quiet, controlled character here.
I don't know what was added in the unrated version, because there certainly isn't anything extreme here. No nudity.
A good, predictable film. 3-24-06. Walt D in LV.
THX 1138 (1971)
Interesting to see, but I say skip it
George Lucas' first film is a special effects extravaganza and has many merits, but is VERY slow. You can see early ILM work here, but the story moves very slowly.
This film does have a few scenes of female nudity, albeit top only, though in the distance you can see front below.
This movie is similar to Clockwork Orange, 2001:A Space Odyssey, and the newer The Island. I would recommend very highly Clockwork Orange and even The Island. Unfortunately, this film is too much (translated too slow) like 2001 to recommend.
