i didn't mind the end as much as the fact that it had to be Tommy Lee Jones in the role.

------------------------------------

tonight i decided to try "Punisher: War Zone".

abysmal.

loved Ray Stevenson in 'Rome', but this was a bad choice for him.

No Country for Old Men, Interesting and tense, with surprised ending.
Hated the ending. Didn't ruin what was a great movie up until that point, but it did knock it down several notches in my mind.

I was all into this film, thought I blinked and missed something, Yeah it threw me off, until the end, killing off the good guy without seeing him get hit, then his wife? B.S.!!! :mad:
Reminds me like they'll do a squeal part II [huh]

100 percent agreed! :mad:

Well, apparently, it was faithful to the book, which ended that way (reminded me of the weird way American Psycho ended - in both the book and the film).

While that might be fine for the book - and I stress "might" - I find it unacceptable and highly anti-climactic in film form. If when making a film from a great book they can change things around and omit "unnecessary" parts (see The Lord of the Rings) to fit better into a movie format, they can make better endings (see The Mist).

Feraud and Inky.

I havent watched it and i am not really in the hurry to.

I remember the remake for the War of the worlds with Tom Cruise as a typical modern remake let down.

I dont want see the original story butchered.

Agreed, Feraud. We watched it yesterday and "horrible" is a kind review! I am glad we didn't bother seeing it in the theater.
I too am glad we didn't pay a red cent to see that junk.

You can safely change "not in a hurry to" to "no interest at all". :)
The best way to describe this film is... bland.

The Lost City directed starring Andy Garcia with Bill Murray and Dustin Hoffman. Set in 1958 Havana about a Nightclub owner, his family and the Castro revolution. Great music, clothing, hats and locations and a damn fine story. I highly recommend it.

ooh, a good one...

A favorite of our family too. We were trying to find the copy of Easter Parade to watch, but didn't locate it. We had a nap here we got back after Easter services too! Looked up your blogs, too cool! Love the YouTube clip from Mr Blandings... another huge favorite here.

"Professional Sweetheart", a 1933 RKO programmer I've been wanting to see for years because it's set in radio. It's Ginger Rogers' first film for RKO, and it feels much much more like a Warners movie, both in the tone of the script and in the supporting cast: it looks like when Rogers came over from Warner, she brought half their their contract players with her. One of the best groups of character actors you'll ever see in a single film: Frank McHugh, Zasu Pitts, Allen Jenkins, Franklin Pangborn, Lucien Littlefield, and Edgar Kennedy, all in one show, and all playing exactly the roles you'd expect them to play.

I wonder where Ned Sparks was that day?

The Coen's are not the filmmakers to provide those Hollywood endings.

Just got back from the Stanford Theater in PA, CA...

We all saw "King Kong" with Fay Wray and "Tarzan the Ape Man" with Johnny Weismuller. Both made in the 30s. Special effects have sure come a looong way since then!

"Knowing" with Nic Cage, not a bad movie but a bit of a miss-match of previous film genres.....better that expected.
