Once 2007, R)
WOW I'm so happy seeing this film. Totally inspiring, this is the best movie of the year for me and one of my favorite's alltime. I'm just speechless of such a profound simple yet moving story about love. "Once" is a modern-day musical set on the streets of Dublin. Featuring Glen Hansard and his Irish band "The Frames," "Once" tells the story of a busker and an immigrant during an eventful week as they write, rehearse and record songs that reveal their unique love story.
El Orfanato (The Orphanage) 2007, R)
Great awesome edge of your seat perfect movie. Wow I was speechless of how good this movie was. Laura purchases her beloved childhood orphanage with dreams of restoring and reopening the long abandoned facility as a place for disabled children. Once there, Laura discovers that the new environment awakens her son's imagination, but the ongoing fantasy games he plays with an invisible friend quickly turn into something more disturbing. Upon seeing her family increasingly threatened by the strange occurrences in the house, Laura looks to a group of parapsychologists for help in unraveling the mystery that has taken over the place.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End 2007, PG-13)
Atonement 2007, R)
The movie is truly an work of art. Truly can be seen as the best film of 2007 although I can't judge it as the best before i see the rest of talented movies as Michael Clayton, Eastern Promises and Charlie Wison's War. In 1935, 13-year-old fledgling writer Briony Tallis and her family live a life of wealth and privilege in their enormous mansion. On the warmest day of the year, the country estate takes on an unsettling hothouse atmosphere, stoking Briony?s vivid imagination. Robbie Turner, the educated son of the family?s housekeeper, carries a torch for Briony?s headstrong older sister Cecilia. Cecilia, he hopes, has comparable feelings; all it will take is one spark for this relationship to combust. When it does, Briony who has a crush on Robbie is compelled to interfere, going so far as accusing Robbie of a crime he did not commit. Cecilia and Robbie declare their love for each other, but he is arrested and with Briony bearing false witness, the course of three lives is changed forever. Briony continues to seek forgiveness for her childhood misdeed. Through a terrible and courageous act of imagination, she finds the path to her uncertain atonement, and to an understanding of the power of enduring love.
American Gangster 2007, R)
Super great film. Great Story, based on a true story too!
The Kite Runner 2007, PG-13)
An excellent movie for sure! This movie remind me alot of The Namesake from last year but much better. Great acting and great emotion from everyone. Spanning from the final days of Afghanistan's monarchy to the atrocities of the Taliban reign, an epic tale of fathers and sons, of friendship and betrayal, an unlikely friendship develops between Amir, the son of a wealthy Afghan businessman, and Hassan, a servant to Amir and his father. During a kite-flying tournament, an unspeakable event changes the nature of their relationship forever. As an adult haunted by the childhood betrayal, Amir seeks redemption by returning to his war-torn native land to make peace with himself and reconcile his cowardice.
Waitress 2007, PG-13)
Really just a profound and magnificent film. Keri Ruseel prove to me that she has the talent to be one of the best actresses of our era. WAITRESS is the story of one woman trapped in a life from which she dreams of escape. Jenna's secret ambition is to save enough money from her waitressing job to leave her overbearing and controlling husband. Jenna is a sharp, sassy woman with a gift for making unusual pies whose recipes are inspired by the trials, tribulations and circumstances of her life. An unwanted pregnancy changes the course of events giving her an unexpected confidence via letters to her unborn baby.
Eastern Promises 2007, R)
Great great movie. Russian mafia scares the hell out of me jaja. Viggo portrayed his character so well I was really impressed. The new thriller reteaming acclaimed director David Cronenberg with his A History of Violence leading man Viggo Mortensen, Eastern Promises is written by Steve Knight. As in the earlier film, director and star together explore the psyche, physicality, and fortunes of a man whose true nature may never be wholly revealed. The mysterious and charismatic Russian born Nikolai Luzhin is a driver for one of London?s most notorious organized crime families of Eastern European origin. The family itself is part of the Vory V Zakone criminal brotherhood. Headed by Semyon, whose courtly charm as the welcoming proprietor of the plush Trans-Siberian restaurant impeccably masks a cold and brutal core, the family?s fortunes are tested by Semyon?s volatile son and enforcer, Kirill (Vincent Cassel), who is more tightly bound to Nikolai than to his own father. But Nikolai?s carefully maintained existence is jarred once he crosses paths at Christmastime with Anna Khitrova (Naomi Watts), a midwife at a North London hospital. Anna is deeply affected by the desperate situation of a young teenager who dies while giving birth to a baby. Anna resolves to try to trace the baby?s lineage and relatives. The girl?s personal diary also survives her; it is written in Russian, and Anna seeks answers in it. Anna?s mother Helen does not discourage her, but Anna?s irascible Russian-born uncle Stepan urges caution. He is right to do so; by delving into the diary, Anna has accidentally unleashed the full fury of the Vory. With Semyon and Kirill closing ranks and Anna pressing her inquiries, Nikolai unexpectedly finds his loyalties divided. The family tightens its grip on him; who can, or should, he trust? Several lives including his own hang in the balance as a harrowing chain of murder, deceit, and retribution reverberates through the darkest corners of both the family and London itself.
Lars and the Real Girl 2007, PG-13)
Spider-Man 3 2007, PG-13)
Live Free or Die Hard 2007, PG-13)
Oh Maggie Q i just love you, hottest asian ever!!! Great Movie!!! I saw this movie for the fourth time and just loved it, best of them all!! Action pack full of nonstop adventure. John McClane takes on an Internet-based terrorist organization who is systematically shutting down the United States.
Charlie Wilson's War 2007, R)
It's a solid film with great acting with a great story. Charlie Wilson was a bachelor congressman from Texas who had a habit of showing up in hot tubs with strippers and cocaine. His "Good Time Charlie" exterior, however, masked an extraordinary mind, a deep sense of patriotism and a passion for the underdog, and in the early 1980s the underdog was Afghanistan-which had just been brutally invaded by the Russians. Charlie's longtime friend and patron and sometime lover was Joanne Herring, one of the wealthiest women in Texas and a virulent anti-communist. Believing the American response to the Russian invasion was anemic at best, she prods Charlie into doing more for the Mujahideen (Afghan freedom fighters). Charlie's partner in this uphill endeavor is CIA Agent Gust Avrakotos, a blue-collar operative in a company of Ivy League blue bloods. Together, the three of them-Charlie, Joanne and Gust-travel the world to form unlikely alliances among the Pakistanis, Israelis, Egyptians, arms dealers, law makers and a belly dancer.Their success was remarkable. Funding for covert operations against the Soviets went from $5 million to $1 billion annually. The Red Army retreated out of Afghanistan. When asked how a group of peasants was able to deliver such a decisive blow to the army of a superpower, Pakistani President Mohammad Zia ul-Haq responded simply, "Charlie did it."
Hairspray 2007, PG)
Zodiac 2007, R)
Paris Je T'aime 2006, R)
Very good I liked it alot. In "Paris, je t'aime," celebrated directors from around the world including the Coen Brothers, Gus Van Sant, Gurinder Chadha, Wes Craven, Walter Salles, Alexander Payne and Olivier Assayas have come together to portray Paris in a way never before imagined. Made by a team of contributors as cosmopolitan as the city itself, this portrait of the city is as diverse as its creators' backgrounds and nationalities. With each director telling the story of an unusual encounter in one of the city's neighborhoods, the vignettes go beyond the "postcard" view of Paris to portray aspects of the city rarely seen on the big screen. An outstanding host of actors graces these vignettes with larger-than-life personas. Their performances add even deeper resonance to this affectionate love letter to one of the world's most transcendent cities.
Awake 2007, R)
Perfect movie! Great acting by everyone I was very impressed with this film. I never thought this could be one of the best i've seen in 2007 but it sure did shocked me and i'm glad it did. A psychological thriller that tells the story of a man undergoing heart surgery while experiencing a phenomenon called "anesthetic awareness," which leaves him awake but paralyzed throughout the operation. As various obstacles present themselves, his wife must make life-altering decisions while wrestling with her own personal drama.
Across the Universe 2007, PG-13)
Very good movie. It's a musical about love involving different historic events in which the couple lived in including Vietnam War, Martin Luther King assasination and Lyndon B. Johnson's government. A romantic musical told mainly through numerous Beatles songs performed by the characters. A young man from Liverpool comes to America during the Vietnam War to find his father. He winds up in Greenwich Village, where he falls in love with an American girl who has grown up sheltered in the suburbs. Together they experience the sweeping changes of America in the late 60's.
I liked the movie very much it was very well developed and I think Brad Pitt portayed a great Jesse James. "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" delves into the private life and public exploits of America's most notorious outlaw. As the charismatic and unpredictable Jesse James plans his next great robbery, he wages war on his enemies, who are trying to collect the reward money and the glory riding on his capture. But the greatest threat to his life may ultimately come from those he trusts the most.
In the Land of Women 2006, PG-13)
This movie was really good! Meg Ryan as always portraying the classical movie actress with her laid back yet emotional taste she always brings to films. The plot goes like this: His world in complete disorder after his break-up with a famous actress, Carter, a young TV writer, goes to suburban Detroit to care for his sickly Grandmother and heal his broken heart. Along the way he forms a special bond with the family that lives across from his Grandma, and changes the live of each woman. In the course of this, as is required in every film and thus the world, he changes his own life as well.
Run Fatboy Run 2008, PG-13)
Wow this movie rocks and its really Funny with a tremendous message!!!
