I made sure I didn't re-read the book so I didn't find myself directly comparing the two. This was beautiful - The use of colour was amazing. Although, there were many moments which were too obviously "3D" moments. They are going to date very quickly. :/ We had a quick look at the 3D DVD as well (with the trendy glasses) and decided it might actually have been okay to watch it in 3D. Next time!

Anyway, overall verdict was that I liked it. :D

The Butterfly Effect
Just watched this again recently and I still love it. I am a big fan of parallel universes, so that probably helps. But this movie just keeps throwing more and more at you. And I love how every actor gets a chance to show off their diversity. This movie is fantastic.

Every kid should see this. It's cute and fun, has lots of adventure, important life lessons, environmentalism, etc. It's great!

Ah, if only they'd stuck to the original story and not gone for so many pretty effects!

68
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire 2005,  PG-13)
69
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban 2004,  PG)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
This is where the Harry Potter series suddenly gets some great direction and awesome cinematography. They also never do explain what's going on as well as they do in the book. Hello? Why do these adult people know about the Marauder's map? Oh, you don't need to know that unless you're reading the book. Of course.
70
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince 2009,  PG)
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
I'm not sure if it was the fact that I saw it in French (with no subtitles) or not, but this one was lacking somewhat.

Update: Have now seen it in English and have to concur that it is rather lacking. No energy.

Beautiful and tragic.

The Fall 2006,  R)
The Fall
This movie was unexpectedly brilliant. The scenery and colours are particularly amazing, while the story is both beautiful and tragic.
83
Slumdog Millionaire 2008,  R)
84
Million Dollar Baby 2004,  PG-13)
Million Dollar Baby
Unexpectedly beautiful.
85
Milk 2008,  R)
Milk
I'm actually quite surprised by the likenesses to the real people. But that's entirely irrelevant. This was a great movie.
86
Battle Royale 3D 2000,  Unrated)
87
Metropolis (Metoroporisu) 2002,  PG-13)
88
District B13 (Banlieue 13) 2006,  R)
89
A.I. Artificial Intelligence 2001,  PG-13)
90
Idiocracy 2006,  R)
Idiocracy
It was an interesting premise, but not exactly one that hadn't been thought of before. Not explored before in movie format, maybe. The idea behind the movie is that if the world continues as it is, then we will devolve into a bunch of idiots. A very real fear and one we should strive to avoid.

Anyway, once the premise is established (in the opening credits) there's very little reason to watch the rest of the movie. It's annoying simply because it is true to the idea that people in the future are stupid. It has to be, yet it's still excruciating to watch.

Two of the stars are for the idea. Half a star for the movie.

159
Good Night, And Good Luck 2005,  PG)
Good Night, And Good Luck
An reflection on a time involving diminished human rights, judgment without trial overcome by intelligence and truth in journalism. Very pertinent.
160
The Italian 2007,  PG-13)
161
Lust, Caution 2007,  NC-17)
Lust, Caution
Absolutely stunning, beautiful and tragic. Scenes from this film will haunt you forever.
162
The Lives of Others 2006,  R)
163
The New World 2005,  PG-13)
The New World
Visually, this was a beautiful movie. The scenery and the filming was stunning, plus the outfits were amazing. The natural sounds and music were well chosen and used well, with the latter not appearing until they were in settled areas, which I thought was a nice touch. All in all, I felt that the film moved way too slowly and may have been better as a mini-series.
164
The Road To Guantanamo 2006,  R)
The Road To Guantanamo
Harsh. I hate what I have seen of the American Military. I would be terrified to meet them in a war zone.
165
The Return 2006,  PG-13)
The Return
This was a great movie. I was expecting it to be more of a horror movie, but it was actually really well made suspense/thriller/mystery. It's just scary enough to keep you jumping and realistic enough to keep you interested. I can't say much more without giving away spoilers.
166
Sideways 2004,  R)
167
There Will Be Blood 2007,  R)
168
Touching the Void 2004,  R)
Touching the Void
The poor bastards. It just goes to show what can happen when you are young, carefree and taking huge risks.
169
2046 2005,  R)
170
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford 2007,  R)
171
Spellbound 2002,  G)
Spellbound
I still find it hilarious how seriously all these families take this. And the attitudes are scary - one girl is doing the spelling bees because she wants to be the best at something and she already knows friends who are better than her at other things she's good at.

For the most part, these kids would have a better idea how to spell if they just read a lot of interesting books instead of studying spelling. Crazy..
172
An Inconvenient Truth 2006,  PG)
173
Atonement 2007,  R)
174
The Aviator 2004,  PG-13)
175
Bobby 2006,  R)
Bobby
This is actually a very interesting movie as the stories of the intertwining lives are very believable. Plus, almost everyone in the movie is played by an A-list actor. It's quite a lot of talent.
176

Gelibolu (Gallipoli) 2005,  PG)
190
Gone Baby Gone 2007,  R)
Gone Baby Gone
This was a very gritty, realistic crime/detective movie. You always know there's more to know, but aren't always quite prepared for the turns as they come up. The filming style is engaging and believable. In the end, the story is really quite harsh and leaves you thinking about what you'd do in that situation.

War of the Worlds 2005,  PG-13)
War of the Worlds
Oh god. The best advice I had before watching this was "Think of it as a comedy".

I especially loved how the family looked all shiny and clean at the end - as if they'd all been having tea politely since the aliens arrived and hadn't noticed a thing.

Cringeworthy at times, but still funny. I can't help but think that if people weren't so quick to take pills they just happened to find lying around then the whole movie would have turned out very differently.

Little Miss Sunshine 2006,  R)
Little Miss Sunshine
I spent the entire movie staring in disbelief. A manufactured dysfunctional family with obvious, hollywood-style, unrealistic character development. Everything they did was just a little too over-the-top and could have been avoided with some thought. In fact, the whole movie would never have happened if only people knew how to drive (or had thought of letting the person who could drive do so from the start).

I could have taken it as silly fun (it's obviously meant to be), but it was just too horrifying. Plus, pagaent girls scare me.

A fantastic lesson in what not to do when you have kids.

This was visually amazing, but I think they could have made the scenario a little less paranormal and weird. It would have been easy for them to keep the plot to pure sci-fi, but for some reason they just didn't.

Sicko 2007,  PG-13)
Sicko
A big improvement on most Michael Moore movies. This is actually more of a documentary, comparing health systems and collecting anecdotal tricks and tragedies. In France he gets a little drawn off-topic by other government benefits that generally improve lifestyles for the French - I learned about several I didn't know of before.

During the film, there are only a few cliché Michael Mooreisms and they're quite toned down compared to previous movies.

Personally, I think America needs to look at insurance reform as well as health care reform. In Australia, insurers try to give you the run-around a little, but they'd lose their right to sell insurance if they tried the schemes shown in Sicko.

Anyway, it's a great insight into why America is such a scary place to get sick.

Smart People
Apart from throwing a few big words around and a couple of rants on literature, this movie is a simple family drama. And it's DULL.

Ellen Page does a convincing smart kid with nothing in her life except academic goals. She's a great character and the role is done well.

Other than that, the movie is really not worth the time.

Be Kind Rewind 2008,  PG-13)
Be Kind Rewind
Once this movie gets past the annoying premise of the magnetised head which wipes the tapes it becomes quite fun and silly. If they made a remake which had some other reason why the tapes got wiped I'd give it another star.

I guess there is something to be said for the characters and plot which change rapidly. It's a big parody of itself and the movie-by-community-committee. Maybe a kid said "I know - we'll make his head magnetised!" and it somehow wrote itself into the film and the film within a film and was supposed to be explained that way (I wouldn't know - I was too busy trying not to bash my head against a wall). It's clever, yet strangely irritating and not funny enough to pull you through to enjoyment most of the time.

The gold moments were when they copied other movies - some of the remakes and silly jokes were classic.

Captain Corelli's Mandolin
I loved the book and was expecting great things from the movie, but actually I'm too annoyed at all the glaring differences. The movie has tried to drag out more emotion and managed to destroy all the drama that was originally in the book.

Maybe I should have waited a few years between the book and the movie. I'm sure it's a great movie if there's nothing to compare it against.
