Another day off, another epic - this time Bernardo Bertolucci's The Last Emperor, often called the last, great epic. It deservedly won a boatload of awards - the scope and the story are both magnificent.

I also watched The Social Network and hope it likewise wins a bunch of awards, though The King's Speech is probably going to sneak in and steal the thunder.

Wesley Snipes new film "Game of Death." As far as I know, it released in Japanese theaters, but not in the US. I'm a big fan of Wesley Snipes's action films and I thought this one looked interesting. The fight scenes in particular seem pretty intense. Kind of looks like a mix of Murder at 1600 and Blade. And by that, I mean the martial arts are amped up a bit, but he still plays a federal agent.   & nbsp;

Enter the Void - Just watched this last night. Wow.

Best film I have seen in recent years. Certainly one of the most visually striking films I have ever watched. Gaspar Noe is an artist through and through. And a ballsy one at that. Credit to Noe and crew for the groundbreaking cinematography achieved in the film. I was enthralled by the entire thing.   

Small taste of what I'm talking about (with the visuals)

@Chris, I have to confess, I have never seen Lawrence of Arabia. I totally agree with your point about CGI. Definitely on my list for this weekend.

This week I watched:
Nowhere Boy. The John Lennon biopic by Sam Taylor-Wood starring Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass) and Kristin Scott Thomas. Very cool look at the early life of John Lennon and his struggles with teenage angst. A great idea for a film - very well acted and directed. Looking forward to seeing more from both Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson after watching this film.

Red Hill. I really enjoy Ryan Kwanten as Jason Stackhouse on True Blood and I have been very interested to see him in another role outside of that character. Here was my opportunity. He did not disappoint with his performance. In fact I'd say he steals the show. As Capone from AICN said "Kwanten is utterly badass." Don't let the fact that this is not a well know film fool you, it's an excellent suspense/thriller.

I watched a boatload of films old and new recently:

The Godfather - Yes, I've owned this for about two years, but I just finally got around to watching it. All the praise is justified, simply put one of the best character-driven crime dramas ever made. I haven't watch II or III yet, but rest assured I will.

Lawrence of Arabia - Another film I've put off watching for far too long. It's very epic in scope and length - but it's really amazing to see how they can pull off such a large-scaled project. Today everything would be CGI and it's just not the same.

Antichrist - I'm a fan of films that push the envelope, and this fits the bill. Lars Von Trier never tones things down. This is a very dark film and not for everyone's taste due to the sex and violence - I found it disturbing at points but ultimately satisfying.

btw - I dont think virginity hit has very much nudity. Maybe a brief shot of some boobs. Kind of surprising, considering all the sex talk in it.

Yeah, I saw Animal Kingdom.

I don't have one particular review in mind, but RT has a boatload of them. And it has a 96%, which is high for RT. See below:

Virginity hit looks pretty terrible. Any nudity in it? Animal Kingdom does sound good, but not sure I can say that I have heard much about it. Do you have a review for it? 01/20/2011

3 films this week.

Animal Kingdom. This is the best Crime Drama I have seen in a while. A female character in power (Jacki Weaver's character) definitel y offers a different dynamic from the more typical crime family. Such great character development too. Very impressed with David Mich˘d in his feature film debut. It would be tough for Jacki Weaver to win an Oscar for this role given her opposition, but I hope she at least gets the nomination, as she did at the Golden Globes.  


Justified, the first season. Sort of a contemporary cowboy action series. Originally aired on FX. As far as I know, they're signed on for second season. It's Adapted from Elmore Leonard's stories Pronto, Riding the Rap, & Fire in the Hole. Timothy Olyphant is great as Raylan Givens. Gotta love the no bullshit approach to justice. 


Virginity Hit. I originally found out about this movie from some posters on the subway advertising a "hotline for virgins." That makes me sound really cool. Anyways, long story short, I think this movie is hilarious.  Reviews were not great, but you have to keep in mind what you're dealing with: a teenage sex comedy. It's not supposed to win Oscars, it's supposed to be stupid and hilarious - which it is. Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam Mckay. Also has an AMAZING cameo by Rock N Roll GREAT and former Creed frontman Scott Stapp. I shit you not.
