Movie Thoughts

Saw:
Pan’s Labyrinth – absolutely amazing. Immersive, beautiful, painful, and memorable. Don’t bring kids under 13, or squeamish adults.
Thank you for Smoking – rented this one. Entertaining, funny look at spin.
An Inconvenient Truth – See this movie. It’s extremely well put together, and not preachy like I worried it might be. It is the documentary to see, rather timely considering things as they are these days. We bought it and have watched it twice, and have since lent it out.

Want to see:
Reign over Me – Adam Sandler in a serious role, in a film that looks particularly good judging by the one preview I’ve seen.
The Namesake – Saw this preview before Pan’s Labyrinth. In the first five seconds was put off by the preview, but within the next ten seconds I suddenly really wanted to see this movie.
Children of Men – I like future dystopia movies. This one looks good.

While surfing through the movie-list site looking for the links to the above movies, I found the info for the Celestine Prophecy Movie. I totally forgot they were making a movie for that book. I wonder if it was any good, or if it ever came out? eh. Don’t care that much I guess.

    I saw a badly watermarked version of Pan’s Labyrinth last year. It wasn’t quite what I expected. I thought the story itself was so-so and the ending was very “meh”

    Really amazing visually though, no doubt.

    I saw the Celestine Prophecy DVD on sale at Wal-Mart. I read the book a long time ago, don’t remember much.
