Saw this last night. Great cinematography, great directing, great script, great costume design, great set design. Definitely an Oscar contender, although it may be limited to the foreign language category because it's subtitled.

This movie isn't for everyone though. And for god's sake don't see it with your parents. A good 20 mins of the movie is ultra-graphic sex scenes. I can see why he put them in the film, but I think there were too many of them.

But all in all, a great movie that you should definitely check out.

The ball has started rolling. This movie marks the start of "Oscar season". Every year I get really down because there are so many crappy movies coming out, then I remember that all the good ones come out at the end of the year. I can't wait to see what the Coen brothers' new film is like. The trailer looks amazing.

It's by Ang Lee, who won an Oscar 2 years ago for best direction (IIRC) for Brokeback Mountain. It just came out this week.

And yeah, Silent Hill was pretty good although the ending was a little lame in my opinion.

lol, philosophy majors were so funny in college. to have a degree in thinking you would think they would think how the fuck they would get a job thinking. but to think about it  i spent 6.5 years in college still no job in what i did; think about that!

I remember when pussy was just awesome by itself. It was the best thing ever. Just when I thought it couldn't get better, BAM! They started landscaping it.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Give a man religion and he'll sit there, praying for fish, until he and his family starve to death.

Rofl.

It is a great movie though, if you're a movie buff.

But what will be even better is No Country For Old Men by the Coen Brothers. It comes out in a few weeks but there are special preview screenings this weekend open to the public. Go and see it if there's one near you. It's the Coen Bros for god's sake.
