Last five:

Ghost Town

Cute, had its moments, very good-hearted, needed one more rewrite. 6/10

The Visitor

I've given up on Slant Magazine, but they got this white man's fairy tale right. Thoroughly non-credible central character and character development, conveniently too-good-to-be-true secondaries. Blatantly scratches the upscale indie-film audience where they itch. 3/10

Burn After Reading

This Big Lebowski hater thought it was pretty damn hysterical, until... you thought No Country for Old Men ended abruptly? 7/10

Vicki Cristina Barcelona

I'm convinced location scouting must be the greatest job there is. Ambles along entertainingly enough, but ultimately it's just Woody's reheated leftovers. 5/10

Tropic Thunder

The precredit Robert Downey Jr.-Toby McGuire sneak preview is the movie moment of the year. The rest is loathesome shit. 1.5/10

Dans Paris 5/10

Worth seing for Romain Duris and Louis Garrell's nude scenes.

I forgot...

'W.'
2/10
Certainly more proficient than most of that calibre but inspired a sense of WHY AM I WATCHING THIS BULLSHIT! that truthfully makes it a lot worse. Ultimately: fuck this movie.

You Can Change the World (Leo McCarey, 1952)

Rating: 2/10

This 28-minute short produced for the Christophers is the first of McCarey's films I've seen in which a) his politics are on full display and b) his artistry is not (presumably in large part because the budget is so low). It's shoddy, poorly-acted and frankly hard to watch. An interesting snapshot into another mindset, however.

Blindness (Fernando Meirelles)
6/10
The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving. It's faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes a life worth living. Oliver Wendell Holmes

Vampyr, directed by Carl Dreyer
8/10

A classic, but I'm not a huge fan of this movie. This was the first time I've seen this film in television, I've seen it at theatres before. Because of the many close-up scenes I think it may have even worked better on TV.

I think this could be a very interesting thread, so post the movie you have seen lately and rate it! You could also give some explanation...

PLEASE NOTE: Rating system is 1-10 (1 is a disaster, 10 is a masterpiece)
