2008 Movie Reviews

on Dec 29, 2008
Since the start of the year I kept a short log of every movie I saw, I thought I'd post it here.

**SPOILERS**

Be Kind Rewind
The movies within the movie were much better than the film itself

Happy-Go-Lucky
The sad, sad life of a 30 year old single woman

Burn After Reading
I was falling asleep till the Brad Pitt character got shot

Hellboy II: The Golden Army
Not what I expected, in a good way

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
All the buffoonery of the main character is not worth it since the girl he was chasing was a slut

Twilight
Fantasy movie for 15 year old girls OMG!!! I just arrived at school and I'm already the most popular girl OMG!!! The cutest guy in school likes me OMG!!! My best friend is crazy about the boy I just rejected OMG!!! The guy is a vampire :):):)

A bout de souffle
Qu'est ce que c'est "dégueulasse" ?

Mongol
Genghis Khan, not happy with having 20 million descendants now gets his own movie

No Country for Old Men
This has to be one of my favorite films

Persepolis
A cartoon for grownups

La Zona
¡Quiero mudarme a La Zona!

Donkey Punch
Sort of a combination of Saw, Hostel and a Pr0n fim

Vicky, Cristina Barcelona
Unlike comedies like Forgetting Sarah Marshal this one is believable

Wall-E
I'm glad fat people got mad at the movie

The Dark Night
That dead guy deserves an Oscar

The Other Boleyn Girl 
Natalie Portman is starting to look like Sarah Jessica Parker

Resident Evil: Extinction
My 8 year old nephew could've written a better plot

Vantage Point 
The movie would have been better and more believable if the terrorists had been mind reading aliens.

Happily Ever After (Ils se Marierent et Eurent Beaucoup d'Enfants) 
Médiocre et ennuyeux
August 21, 200

In Bruges 
I liked Bruges and the midgets, the rest not so much

30 Days of Night 
It would have been even cooler if the inhabitants of the town turned out to be zombie werewolves that ate Eskimos.

101 Reykjavík 
I just don't get Iceland
April 6, 2008

Eurotrip 
Better than anything Scorsese has done lately, and still one of the dumbest movies I have ever seen. The only thing I liked was the song.

Primal Fear 
Bitter commentary on how faddish and easy to manipulate psychologists are.
January 30, 2008

The Bank Job 
I bet the female lead is a lesbian
July 16, 2008

Le Scaphandre et le Papillon (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) 
According to Martin Seligman most paraplegics quickly adapt to their circumstances and report feeling only slightly less happy than those not paralized, so this triumph of the will story is in fact rather trite. However, it was at least well done.

Atonement I liked the story, but it somehow never gels as a movie. For some reason I was not entirely pleased.
February 15, 2008

Havoc 
I definitely have got to join a gang and start selling drugs
June 8, 2008

A Summer's Tale 
If you want 3 pretty girls chasing after you, you'd better care more about your music than about them.

The Ninth Gate 
The girl who helps Depp was a witch. Great Movie
July 25, 2008

Crank 
Non-stop action
April 7, 2008

Cloverfield
Great movie! The creepy whiny looser cameraman had it coming.

Tropa de Elite (The Elite Squad)
Drug legalization doesn't work if you have a big underclass.
May 29, 2008

Boyfriends and Girlfriends 
Eric Rohmer understands male-female dynamics like no other director.
March 22, 2008

Claire's Knee 
If you want a girl to dump her boyfriend you portray him as a nice guy, you praise him and never criticize him.
July 23, 2008

The Limey
Sometimes when you finish watching a movie it just makes you wanna go out and kick some ass!
March 22, 2008

In the Company of Men
The deaf girl would've gone back with the alpha male/psychopath if he had asked her to
June 1, 2008

Hotel Rwanda
Schindler's list in Rwanda.
August 16, 2007

Mariachi

on
Yet even by WaMu’s relaxed standards, one mortgage four years ago raised eyebrows. The borrower was claiming a six-figure income and an unusual profession: mariachi singer. Mr. Parsons could not verify the singer’s income, so he had him photographed in front of his home dressed in his mariachi outfit. The photo went into a WaMu file. Approved.
Saying Yes, WaMu Built Empire on Shaky Loans
