    2 and a half movies I caught while I was away:

    The Departed (who didn't): an interesting remake, better translated into an American setting than expected. (Definitely not the worst remake with Mark Wahlberg) Some of my friends who'd seen the original had a hard time of 'knowing how it ends'. But that's probably because they don't see lots of movies, originals or remakes, like yours truly do.

    I like the way they compbined the characters of Mary (Ming's wife) and Dr Lee (the psychiatrist) into one character. Serves better with the split-identity motif.

    I also like the way of deposition about Billy Costigan's background (which took an entire prequel to do so with Infernal Affairs), though a friend of mine said that made the Act I of the film boring.

    Not sure about spliting SP Wong into Queenan and Dignam - to me it looks as if Dignam was created solely to serve the film's ending.

    The violent scenes are rather full-on by recent Hollywood movies' standard (a tribute to Hong Kong cinema?) Reminds me of Scorsese's hay-day works (kind of like Taxi Driver with the last scene with original saturated colour.)

    And the Chinese mafia guys speak laughable Cantonese.

    Rob-B Hood - another film that's much better than expected. Dare I say it's Jackie Chan's best work since Rumble in the Bronx. A good mix of comedy, action and sentimentality very much like those in his Golden Harvest haydays like Mr Canton and Lady Rose (Miracles, The Canton Godfather or however you call it.) And unlike failures like City Hunter, the goofiness and sentimentality actually work in the film's context.

    My only complain is that there's not enough screen time for Michael Hui to fully display his potential, though he did a decent job in this film.

    Magnificent Desolation - I only saw a 2D version. But for an IMAX film it's pretty entertaining.

    And these are the films I saw on the plane:
    Lucky Number Slevin - The advertising campaign worked magic without mentioning the darkness of the ending, got me totally by surprise. That also probably explained why the movie didn't do well, with everyone expexting a comedy.
    Brokeback Mountain - finally watched it. Expectedly good. Didn't realise Anne Hathaway showed her breast (again ) and Anna Faris had a small role in this film.
    Over the Hedge - okay pastime. But it's probably right that I didn't see it in the cinema.
    Breakfast at Tiffany's - yes the Hepburn classic which I haven't seen until yesterday afternoon. The story did nothing for me but I must admit I love Audrey's rendition of Moonriver even more after seeing the film.

    Man of the House

    2 out of 5

    I seen this movie trailer at the theater several times and it went straight to video.

    Is Tommy Lee Jones career pretty much over that he is picking crappy projects?

    Syriana: 3.5/5
    its a good movie, and the ending truly shows the corruption everywhere, but for the movie itself, it wasnt that good filmed. Just becaue the shaky cam style and some famous actors were used, does not automaticly mean, that the movie is well done.




    Man of the house (hd): 1.5/5

    not soo funny but tits and 5 pair of them to enjoy a hour and a half

    I just finished watching Poseidon last night. Rather enjoyed it.
    If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos...then you probably haven't completely understood the seriousness of the situation.

    I saw three great classics and one really stupid movie over the past 4 days:
    3:10 To Yuma (1957) 5/5
    Fort Apache (1948) 4.5/5
    A Fistful Of Dynamite (Duck, You Sucker) (Once Upon A Time... The Revolution) (1971) 5/5

    ... and this one got 1/2 point for the head-biting scene and the last 30 seconds (if the best looking girls didn't die first, I might have rated it higher ):
    Abominable (2006) 0.5/5

    Fort Apache A film I watched over and over and over and over again as a kid. What a great film.
    Sgt. Johnny Beaufort: He says, "The Apaches are a great race," sir. "They've never been conquered. But it is not well for a nation to be always at war. The young men die... the women sing sad songs... and the old ones are hungry in the winter."
    Fort Apache

    I agree. At first I thought I've already seen it, but then I found out that the one I've seen is She Wore A Yellow Ribbon (1949), another John Ford western with John Wayne and very similar to Fort Apache. Both movies are great.

    As I see on IMDb, these movies are the first two in Ford's Cavalry Trilogy. The third one is Rio Grande (1950)... I'm not sure if I've see it, maybe I have - as a kid.

    SAW 3. 5+/5

    The Saw movies as a whole IMO, the greatest horror series ever.
