That was also at the top of my list, mixed the parts of the story very well and changed moods at the right times i felt!

Best two movies I saw this past year were The Prestige and Blood Diamond.

I can't explain really why I liked The Prestige, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was never a big DiCaprio fan early in his career, but I thought he did a decent job in Blood Diamond. Also, I thought Djimon Hounsou did a pretty good job too in a supporting role in Blood Diamond, just as I also liked him in Gladiator.

Loved Stranger than Fiction. My girlfriend hated it... But then again, she also hated Shaun of the Dead, so take it for what its worth. I also loved The Illusionist. It was one of those that seemed to sneak by without much notice, but it was really good. I actually thought I was renting The Prestige. One of the best mistakes I have ever made. (For what its worth, my girlfriend liked this one.:) )

My favorite movie of the year was The Departed.

Other movies I liked included Little Miss Sunshine, Borat, Clerks 2, We Are Marshall, The Prestige, The Good Shepard and a movie that was hard to watch because of the subject matter but was a great movie was United 93.

Best Movie by far: The Departed.. (great soundtrack, acting, and story...
2nd Place: Blood Diamond (didn't buy Leo's accent much..however Hounsou was great as usual, plus who doesnt like a movie with Jenifer Connolley?
3rd Place: The Illusionist (rented it and loved it... nothing like good ole magic)
4th Place Ties Between: borat, stranger than fiction and little miss sunshine

The last ten minutes of lil miss sunshine is probably the funniest thing Ive seen in a comedy in a long time.

Children of Men, hands down.
I think people don't realize that it is basically a Western. Anti-hero is forced to come out of his self-imposed malaise to help a damsel in distress on a perilous journey. There is no obtuse science to this science fiction and the themes are easy to relate to.
The cinematography is outstanding and the movie should disturb you in all the right ways. There are several actions scenes that are better and more realistic than anything you've seen since Black Hawk Down.
I also loved Borat.

Most definetely a very good movie - but one has to be ready to see it in order to watch it.
I also enjoyed The Illusionist. Norton and Giamantti were quite enjoyable. And that goes 20 times for Jessica.
I also liked Mission Impossible 3 - I think Hoffman made a good villian, which helps make a good flick.
A movie which came so close for me...Silent Hill. A couple tweeks here and there, and it could have become a truly eerie movie. Instead, it became a predictable blood fest at the end. In that way, it reminded me a bit of Lifeforce (good premise, lousy followup)

Just got done watching that one - I was going to add it if no one else mentioned it. Wow. A very brutal film - it offered a lot more than your average horror flick, mainly because of some very interesting, very real characters who all descend into almost pure madness.
Great flick.

Just watched Hollywoodland. Good movie.

I rented The Illusionist (or at least thought I did); but when I got home the clerk at the video store had a mix-up and gave me Saw III, which I have no intention of ever seeing. I was bummed. They acknowledged their mistake and will correct it. I hate slasher/torture movies. I can accept movies with violence as long as they have a good plot/storyline. Movies like Saving Private Ryan, etc.

Gonna watch Eastwood's Flags Of Our Fathers today.

I also like American Haunting. Sometimes hard to follow, but after I did some research on what the movie was about it made it better to view.

Well the best movie I've seen so far in '07 is "Breach". My wife and I saw it last night. Easily Ryan Phillippe's best performance. And Chris Cooper was great, but he's great in everything he's in. He's got to be one the best actors working. Gary Cole was in it and he was good, but I couldn't help but laugh every time he was on screen.

Finally got to see Flags - a very good movie, and simply makes me want to see Sands of Iwo Jima even more.

I saw Idiocracy a couple of days ago, a flick by Mike Judge (Office Space, Bevis and Butthead, etc.). While not the greatest flick in the world, it was rather amusing.
Basically, it was about the most average soldier in the army (Luke Wilson) waking up 500 years in the future and finding he is - by far - the smartest man in the nation.

I actually liked the Descent, and I'm not one who is into those kind of movies. Had some scary scenes in it.

Watched The Departed last night. Good movie, but not as great, IMO, as some make it out to be.

I just read that :) I tend toward your opinion, I think. It actually reminded me of one of my very favorite movies, Traffic, in the sense that all these stories come together and the main theme with which I'm left is that nothing is black and white, there are a million aspects to every story. And the way that everything that seems so big can really be broken down into tiny little pieces of relationships and mundanities of life. The way those things can just blow up on you at any time.

I thought the Japanese girl was amazing...that story just broke my heart. She essentially just kept getting rejected, over and over, even by her own mother in a sense. And the easiest and most obvious way to not get rejected was for her to get close to someone physically, and it KEPT HAPPENING because she was so misguided about it. The end with her father...oh god. Man.

All that said, the whole movie was just harrowing. I felt sick several times.

Is it out on DVD yet? Or is it just being released to theaters? I watched Flags Of Our Fathers today - WOW! Great movie!

Had some great lines in it too. One of the opening lines really struck me hard...."Every A**hole thinks they know all about war. Especially those that have never fought in one." So very true.

Ok. I watched The Prestige yesterday and really liked it. But the ending really threw me.

DISCLAIMER: If you haven't seen the movie, stop here.

To those that have seen it, I have some questions that you might be able to help me with.

Bale's character (Borden) is actually twin brothers perpetrating the Transported Man. I figured that out when Caine's character (Cutter), in advising the Jackson character (Angier) who was "obsessing" over how Borden was doing this act, told him he had to be using a double. Cutter knew because he was in on it. Angier seemed to not want to accept such an easy explanation.

So Angier finds a double of his own for his new act. But what happens to this guy? Now I thought, after I watched the movie, that this other guy (the "drunk" Angier) was really his twin brother. And that it turns out that it was actually two sets of twin brothers carrying out this bitter feud, trying to out do each other, and even sabotaging each others acts.

But what throws me for a loop is the device capable of teleporting a being from one place to another, and built by the Bowie character, physicist Tesla. In the movie, when the device is activated, it doesn't appear to work because the top hat and cat used in the experiments were still standing within the device. I assumed that Angier took the device, even though it didn't work, for it's theatrical and visual effects, and used the trap door, as well as his double, to create this new act.

But reading up on Wikipedia on this movie (and the book), the device did work and creates a "clone" of the subject.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prestige

For Angier's trick, Tesla successfully creates a device capable of teleporting a being from one place to another, but which has a surprising side-effect. As well as re-creating the subject wherever is deigned by the device, the subject is also left behind, but as a cold, lifeless shell. Angier, with bitter humor, refers to these shells as 'prestiges'.

Angier's new act is equal to Borden's and Borden, in retaliation, attempts to discover how In A Flash is performed. During one performance he breaks into the backstage area, and turns off the power to Angier's device, though he does not discover what it does, during the act itself. As a result, the teleportation is incomplete, and both the new Angier and the old, 'prestige' Angier continue to live, though the old feels constantly weak while the new seems to have a lack of physical substance. The real Angier fakes the death of his magic act alter-ego and returns to his family estate, where he becomes terminally ill.

The clone Angier, alienated from the world by his ghostly form and realizing Borden's secret, attacks one of them before a performance. However, Borden's apparent poor health and Angier's sense of morality intervene and Angier does not carry through with the murder. It is implied that this Borden dies a few days later, and the incorporeal Angier travels to meet his twin. They obtain Borden's diary and publish it after omitting the brothers' secret. Shortly afterwards, the corporeal Angier dies and his ghostly twin uses the device to teleport himself into the body, hoping that either he would return it back to life and be one person again or kill himself instantly. It is discovered in the final chapter that the reconstructed Angier has continued to survive to the present day.

-----------------------------------------------

So was it the "clone" Angiers running around doing the killing?

And at the very end of the movie you see a scene of the one Angier still in the water tank. What was with that? One of the Bale brothers gets hanged for murdering Angier, and earlier in the movie we see the Angier who was supposedly drowned in that tank on an autopsy table.

I'm also assuming that the Michael Caine character switches his allegiance to Borden at some point after he realizes that Angier's obsession with Borden's acts is driving him to try and destroy Borden's personal life out of pure jealousy.

What say some of you?

I'm bringing this back up, because I was SURE that someone on this board had mentioned Avenue Montaigne. Alfred and I saw it last night ... not the movie we planned to see, but both found it delightful. It's French, subtitled. But very enjoyable. Might be hard to find, though, which is a pity. Big screen not necessary, but I think seeing it in the theatre added to the experience.

I'm getting tired of friends and co-workers bragging up movies and saying they are "must see", and I rent and watch them and don't see all the hype. :lol:

Example - The Inside Man

Everyone was telling me that you got to see this movie. It was alright, but nothing spectacular.

I'm going to to try my best to watch Blood Diamond and the Good Shepherd this weekend. The only thing I've heard about the Good Shepherd is that it's interesting but lonnnnnnng.

I watched Pan's Labyrinth last weekend. I wish someone would have warned me that it was a Spanish movie with sub-titles. That wasn't so bad, but there is no audio whatsoever, so it was like watching a silent movie. But it wasn't a bad movie at all. Well worth watching if you can handle the above. One dark fairy tale. Kinda "Alice In Wonderland" like.

Good Shepherd is phenomenal, however being very long and having a very intricate plot. I suggest it highly.

I do also suggest not seeing Spiderman 3. Worst piece of cellulite I've been dragged to see in quite some time.

I am looking forward to the latest Pirates movie, as well as the newest Shrek.

I normally lose interest in a movie the length of the Good Sheperd, but I didn't with this one. As highlifeman mentioned though, the plot is very intricate so it's best to watch when you have little or no distractions around you. At least that's the case with me.

I loved the Blood Diamond, probably one of my top 3 movies for the past year.

Agree with highlifeman, Spiderman 3 was just horribly disappointing IMO. I wouldn't recommed anyone wasting their money at the theater, spend the $3 when it comes out on video.

Took the kids to see it because my 11 yr ld loves Spidey. I was sorely disappointed. My 11 yr old said it aptly.... "Too much romance in this movie". If I want to watch a relationship movie I'll turn on LMN. :lol:



I am looking forward to the latest Pirates movie, as well as the newest Shrek.

Haven't seen neither, but several friends who have said they suck. Especially the lastest Pirate one. Depp is only in about 1/2 the movie.

You like you some Depp? :lol:

Loved 300. Did you see the South Park episode parody? :laugh:

I did see that, caught it even though I don't usually watch South Park. Pretty funny stuff.

I thought The Good Shephard was good, but it was hard to get at all emotionally invested in it because the characters were all so cold. Which was the point I'm sure, but still diminished things a little for me.

Also thought The Inside Man was pretty good GAC, but not phenomenal or anything.

Once (http://www.foxsearchlight.com/once/).

You'll have to look for it. Unfortunately, in many towns you'll have to wait for video.

I agree Redsfaithful about The Good Shepard.

Another movie I'd recommend in here would be "Year of the Dog".

If you like movies such as "Happiness" or "Me, You, and Everyone We Know"

I think Happiness might have scarred me for life. And I'm one of the least squeamish people I know.

I haven't, in all seriousness because my wife won't watch another movie by the guy, and it's not the kind of stuff I feel like watching by myself. :laugh:
