    Watched May on DVD last night.

    Not as good as I would have expected (I was hoping the film could be a bit more than what the trailer has already shown). Too much pop music used, which makes it feel like 'American Psycho 2'. But still worthy of my time cos it's my favourite kind of movies - The Lonely Looneies. Angela Bettis' May is as sad as Robin Williams' Sy. And Anna Faris as a lesbian... what can I say?

    The commentary on the DVD are, however, is appalling. There're 2 tracks and I've only listened to the one with director, cast and crew. It gave not much insights to the story itself, just which shots are from the reshoots, which scenes are ripped off from Taxi Driver or Repulsion, how big a fan to Dario Agenta Lucky McKee is, how cool the slider shots are and lot of crap talks.

    Watched We Were Soldiers on DVD... for some reasons...

    It's slightly better than I expected. I'm never a fan of war movies. I do find the beginning of the movie dragged a bit. But once it's in Vietnam, the battle's gripping, which is probably the only merit of this film.

    Also watched Beauty and the Beast, the 1946 Jean Cocteau version - Was trying to do a double-bill on this and Disney's version. Turns on it'll take me a week or two to finish both DVD sets.

    Oh the movie is a masterpiece of course. First Cocteau movie I've ever seen. I still have a lot to learn about this director, but I love the visions of some of those dreamy scenes in slow mo/reverse.

    She's just too pretty for Hollywood. I don't know, put her in a glass box and display her at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or something. - Jake on the topic of Scarlett Johansson.

    Falling Down
    One of Joel Schumacher's better films... It was a great story. I liked how the main character had a good reason to be angry and pi$$ed off in the beginning, but later on, it got to a point where he just went a little too far and turned out to be the bad guy... Good film though!

    Watched The Haunted Mansion. Eddie Murpphy is not Eddie Murphy. It is in fact a sinister alien doppel ganger ordered to make unfunny family films, while the aliens look inside him apart to see what makes him so funny.

    Yep, went to see A Fistful of Dollars & For A Few Dollars More double-bill at the Astor today.

    Didn't bag a chick this time, but I attracted a pussy... cat. The resident feline at Astor seemed to have an affection with your beloved editman. I spent about hour an half scratching the puss' neck whilst it sits on my lap as I was sitting in lobby waiting for entry. Yes I always have a thing with cats and girls...

    Oh the movies... Fistful makes me wanna see Yojimbo again, for it IS a Yojimbo rip-off, though still good.

    But I like For A Few Dollars More better. The distinct cinematographic style begins to emerge. Plus Van Cleef chewed the scenes up in this one much alike Eli Wallach did in The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. The final showdown is freakin' worth the price, though The Good, The Bad & The Ugly still tops it all.
