    For the love of bob do not pay money for a permanent copy of this movie. Unless there is something wrong with you or you have some professional interest you will probably not want to watch this film more than once.

    Miller's Crossing 10/10

    I recently watched the Coen brother's True Grit and was spurred to re-watch the first film I ever saw created by those two, 1990's Miller's Crossing. I rarely ever give out a perfect score, but this is one of my favorite films and too often overlooked when discussions turn to great crime films. The Coen brothers are the best at their craft working today. Look into you heart and see this film.

    EDIT: The opening scene from the film:

    Would you like a description of a single scene? I can present it in such a way that no element of the plot is ruined, but of course the shock value of not knowing what is going to happen will be lost for this specific "shock" visual. Might help you decide on your purchase.

    I would of course PM you this description as it would violate the TOS of the boards. :)

    I guess I should have phrased that better. I get what happened, it just seemed the movie itself wasn't sure what it was going for. And again, it just didnt flow. Glad you enjoyed it though, but I can't just go for mindless action and effects with a basic idea thrown in, of course thats why I did like any of the TF live action movies either.

    Mississippi Burning 9/10
    Really great film. Absolutely LOVED Gene Hackman. There's obviously a lot more to get into with this film, but politics make the mods cry, so I won't get into it.

    Spirited Away 9/10
    What kept this from being a ten for me was that I had to watch the dubbed version.

    Dude, some people have trouble figuring out the plot to ROTF, of course there's going to be some that have trouble with Inception.

    Starship Troopers - 2/10. Not even the co-ed shower scene could save this travesty. Yuck. I loved the Roughnecks show that used to come on, but this movie reeks.

    Flash Gordon (1980) - 9/10. Ah, two of my favorite things rolled into one: comic book movies and Queen. FLASH! AHHHH! :rock

    SeaRex - 6/10 - Some little documentary about giant prehistoric undersea life. Things in the ocean scare the shit outta me. Still interesting.

    Something About Sue - 7/10 - Another documentary about Sue the giant T-Rex. More entertaining.

    If you've read the novel, any charm that can be found in that movie basically evaporates.

    Moon 20/10
    Honestly, this may very well be the greatest science fiction movie. Ever. Quiet, understated, and deliberately paced, but still relentlessly engaging and exciting, Moon is a film that lets Asimov rest peacefully in his grave after something like Skyline has him rolling in it. It's a smart movie that doesn't require anybody expositing into the camera for 40 minutes. It's really a fusion of Asimov's smartness, Ridely Scott's beautiful cinematic eye, and Rod Serling's incredibly moving human element. I dare say that Moon is an example of the perfect science fiction film.

    Now, don't take that as a stab against sci-fi action films like District 9 or Inception, as those are examples of perfect sci-fi action films. "Action" is the key word here. District 9 is, when all is said and done, a shoot-em-up ride with a clever layer of allegory underneath. Moon, on the other hand, is a straight-up psychological thriller. They have different goals, and while the mainstream lumps them in the same genre, they are not even close to being so. I think both a perfect, just in different ways, if that makes any sense.

    Honestly, I could go on and on about this movie and how great it is, but for now I'll just say go watch it. It's on Netflix instant and is only an hour and a half long. Do it. Now.

    Well, it was constructed as a satire, though less so than the source material, so it probably isn't for everyone particularly if that point is lost.

    Last two:

    The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. 9/10. I felt the ending was a bit rushed (from the point where Bob has the bar to the end), but other then that, perfect.

    Up. It's hard to rate, it's been a long time since I cried watching a movie, but man, that story. 9.6/10
