Rather frustrating viewing experience. First my DVD player skipped like crazy. After jumping on the computer, it ended up freezing twice.

The material was good though. Well, the first two-thirds at least. After, it became a huge sap fest. I probably should have found myself the non-director's cut to watch first. Where (judging by reports) the original version left viewers slightly unfulfilled, the director's cut (with around 50 minutes of new footage) provided closure regarding Salvatore and Elena's relationship.

So I think it would have served me well if I had viewed the original version first. Indeed, this director's cut felt way too long. If I had loved the original, I wouldn't have minded the extra length. But not to be.

The first two-thirds that I enjoyed probably was the original cut, so it isn't really surprising that I didn't dig the ultra sappiness towards the end. The sections that I did enjoy were sweet, genuine, well spirited.

Word to the wise: watch the original cut first. If not, proceed with patience.

Movie looked cool, dialogue was awful, some funny parts, Megan Fox is hot.

Falling Down.

Probably the best performance I've seen Michael Douglas in. Duvall wasn't shabby either. Also didn't know that there was a Joel Schumacher film that didn't suck.

The Rainmaker

Matt Damon is this young lawyer who takes on his first case, a case he can't possibly handle, against a big insurance company that screwed some family and kept denying their claim. With his partner, Danny DeVito, they try to expose this company for being totally unethical and, basically, thieves.

I think it's worth watching.

7.5/10

Exactly the same as me. I saw a trailer for it when I went to see Casino Royale or whatever it was and thought "I'm going to see that" and then I didn't see any reviews on it or anything so I kind of forgot about it.

/adds to online rental list.

i decided to watch this after hearing a lot of talk about the Dardenne Brothers. they've gotten a ton of recognition within such a small amount of time. it's nothing groudbreaking or mindblowing, just very good. simple but well executed.

Snatch

Very, very good. Brad Pitt is great, the plot is superb and I can't pick much wrong with this film.

9/10


Four Wedding

Pulled through by the two main characters (Reese's cuteness and Vince's humour), the plot struggled. Disappointing, could have been much better.

5/10
