Harold and Kumar - if you liked National lampoon's Van Wilder, you'll love this one with Kal penn. lot of racial jokes though and mostly all white folks were portrayed as bad/flawed in one way or another.

The Village - Yes, I figured it out and that may have influenced my grade for this movie. I give it a B. Excellent for any M Night fans, you won't be (too) dissapointed. Lot of slow moments. if you are into mindless action you wont get/enjoy this movie.

Bourne Supremecy - a continuation from its predecessor. They kept the same feel and that should keep the fans happy. The car chase scenes always look fake to me. Oh, they also shot some scenes in Goa.

I Robot - Nothing really new with thise one. Smith's one of my fav actors but I really don't know why. He does the same acting in every movie/every scene. The robots look cute and the whole idea may not be too farfetched. 2035 is long way away.

Spider-man 2 - Ummmmm, C ? D ? One of those grades. You will either love it or hate it and so far I've met people from both sides. Hopefully the third one won't be this emotional.

Manchurian candidate - a remake, looks promising with Danzelas the lead.

Catwoman - what were they smokin? (except - it's Halle Bery in skin tights and you can't really complain about that.

A little older one -

Shrek 2 is still running. Do yourselves a favor, if you haven't seen the first one, watch it first and then go and enjoy the second one.

Since the thread is on movies, my suggestion is for everyone to go and watch "farenheit 9/11", if you havent watched it yet. At times its hilarious. You have got to give this guy Moore credit for making this film. The whole audience in the theatre broke into loud appluase at the end of the movie.

Just watched KillBill Vol 2. Excellent making. Reminds me of german director Fassbinder. You gotta need a strong nerve to watch Tarantino movies.

Nerve, a lot of patience and always expect the unexpected (yet simple). Hero is coming out and I just don't know how Quintin was picked for this one - Quintin and Jet Li may end up being either an amazing combo or a total dud. I'm rooting for the first one.

Just saw Village. If you are a die hard Hitchcock and Shyamalan fan - go see it! If not - prepared to be disappointed. You need to appreciate and love the fine nuances that these 2 directors strive for and achieve. The ending was an anticlimax and could have been better.

The Village

OK. Could'nt sleep.

I am impressed that Shymalan has not succumbed to typical pressures from the movie industry. He has not modified his movie to cater to sensational and cheap thrills. He has maintained his quest for finetuning and refining his sensibilities about human nature. By human nature, in the world of moviemaking, means he tries very hard through screenplay and photography to potray human emotions (such as fear and especially human sense of control).
So "The Village" is just another ongoing episode in his development but i must say that his photography, which i love, is now beginning to push his boundaries more.

The question is whether in his next movie he will have the same luxury and leeway, as certain quarters besides the fickle minded public, will want to see some profits. Profits in the region of Sixth Sense.

i agree with tehsin about bourne suprimicy. i was about to fall asleep during that car chase, its that long, and the weakest part of the movie making. but overall, it was a good movie.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this movie here - it's a must see for horror (not the stupid Scream or I know what you did .... kind) or scary movie fans. Only thing is, it's made in HK with english subtitles. It kind of reminded me of some of the ghosts stories I used to hear back in Bangladesh (way way back).

I watched it yesterday. He used lot of Hong Kong style film making. Specially the camera movement during the teaching session of Uma and Gordon Liu.

By the way, I am big fan of Gordon Liu. This Jackie Chan or Jet Li is nothing infornt of him (my thinking..). Gordon's movie "Master Killer" (also known as 96th Chamber of 5) was just amazing. Made is late 70s, but still looks fresh. Watch it if you like Hong Kong style movies, lots of Kung Fu.

The action degenerated into the predictable. Pitch Black was a much more solid movie, tighter. This one tries to do too much, the second time around is rarely as good as the first.

If you are into political satire type moves watch "Wag the Dog". You will find a lot of similarity with what's going on these days. However, if you are into action, comedy, drama type movie then forget about it:-)

I liked Bourne Suprimicy. Good film.
