Moon is one of my favorite sci-fi films. District 9, another sci-fi film released in 2009, is worth watching too.
Yeah 2009 seemed to be a good year for films especially sci fi ones. Moon really was great and did emotionally affect me. Unfortunatly it is one of those films you can only see once since knowing the twist it kind of loses that surreal distrbing quality it had first viewing.
But yeah, 2009 was amazing for movies. It's probably the only year that I can easily name ten movies from, all of which I liked and would be willing to see again.
I actually watch a lot of movies lately. Inception is one of my favorite, I watched it many times and can watch again and again.
I'm also very fond of Hunger Games btw, it is a great movie I enjoyed on a big screen.
I re-watched 天下无双 (Chinese Odyssey 2002) earlier this week. It gets a bit tedious towards the end, but the ridiculous story and outright silliness make it worth watching, as do the enjoyable performances by Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Faye Wong, Chang Chen, and Zhao Wei - who was dubbed for the Cantonese release.
I accidentally spoiled Moon for myself (Bringing it the total to 3 Kevin Spacey films I've spoiled for myself), but I watched it anyway and it was absolutely brilliant. I agree with 'The Innocent' above, the idea that the twist came so early was extremely refreshing.
Hmm I don't know I guess the twist does come early if your smart enough but i didn't know exactly what was going on, was he slowly going mental? And that was one of the reasons i really liked the film and the surreal disturbing quality I said it had.
Do not go see Detachment. Fuck, I actually did my time working in the public school system and don't need that maudlin shit.
Spent the day trying to watch some films with some friends round at mine. We started off wtih A Clockwork Orange, which makes for some delightful sunny Sunday viewing! It was absolutely fantastic, cementing Kubrick in my mind as an astonishing director. We also started watching Ferris Buller's Day Off, unfortunately we didn't get all the way through that. I'd seen a good few clips from it, but it was great seeing it all stitched together. I can't wait to finish it, but it was very funny.
Tell me about it, right? We're working on our list of "Films someone hasn't seen" and both of those were up there. First time viewing for me on them. To be honest, after ACO, we needed something a bit uplifting. Whilst Dominos pizza and dip is great, it wasn't quite enough!
Millers Crossing- Not to sure what to think about this one, it was quite engaging and I liked the characters in it but it was a bit complicated and it had a tendency to throw names out which you struggled to understand who they are. Also Not really to sure what it was about, and what the main characters real goal was, washe just doing it for the gambling debt? Quite a complicated route to go down for that. In fact over the course of the movie I thought it changed, the woman at first, a power play to get to be the big cheese second, and saving Leo third but then he goes "fuck you" to Leo so yeah in the dark about that. I don't think its the best Coen brothers film(Toss up between Fargo and No Country For Old Men) but its quite enjoyable I have to say.
Last thing I watched was "Contraband" in the theatre, I quite liked the shootout, reminded me a bit of "Heat".
Dungeons & Dragons. I wonder why the person who wrote the description on the back of the DVD case thought it was a good idea to compare the movie to Starwars: Phantom Menace.
The Raid Nothing really groundbracking, but they sure did a good job kicking the hell out of each other on screen.
