Certainly made me think during it, and I suspect over the coming days. 9/10 for me.
    Yeah, I loved the movie when I saw it too. One of my favourite films from 2005 though it could very well be my favourite as well.

    Hated Munich tbh. Nothing against the message, but poor over-acting, poor directing and a **** poor script make it the worst film of last year for mine. Speilbergs worst. Most cringeworthy movie ever.

    Nope it was total crap, everything about it. One of the worst movies I have ever watched. I was having doubts about Speilberg being any good for sometime and the movie confirmed his status as 'best ever' is merely an 'emperors new clothes' situation.

    Watched the Break Up, The Hole and Art School Confidential last night.

    Break Up was your average romcom rubbish, but refreshing in that they didn't get back together in the end.
    The Hole is alright, good enough to watch every now and again.
    Art School Confidential justifies another watch soon i reckon.

    You can't seriously say it was worse than AI.

    I thought Bana was great. Rush chewed the scenary a bit but that's him and his character's screen time was limited enough that it wasn't a problem for me. Daniel Craig had me somewhat worried a few times but I thought the rest of his team were good.

    I thought the entire film had a slightly frenetic and surreal vibe to it - maybe what you felt was over-acting. To me, it represented Avner's frame of mind as he submerged himself in this world and completely lost where the edges were - and did so really well. Some of the moralising speeches were slightly hokey, but its a pretty serious ethical puzzle they're dealing with, and if you're ever going to make a speech like that, this was when it was called for.

    The dream sequences where he "flashed-back" to the Munish siege were a bit awkward for mine, but necessary to attempt to explain how Avner's character became obsessed and consumed by what he was doing.

    I saw it as a big return to form for Senor Spielbergo - apart from anything else, no naff kid in the lead!

    Can't really argue with anything you're saying as it's all opinion. Needless to say I disagree.

    Saw The Devil Wears Prada and Pirates Of The Caribbean 2 (finally) in the cinema in the last week. Watched a whole bunch on TV, but none of the ones I hadn't seen before warrant a mention.

    TDWP was alright, though I wouldn't recommend it really. A few laughs, and Streep was pretty good and generally carried the film, but it wasn't all that memorable. The Pirates sequel was entertaining, though I didn't like it anywhere near as much as the first.

    Watched Trainspotting yesterday. The similarities between young Renton and Fuller are uncanny, and hopefully Fuller too will "choose life".

    Yeah, loved it. Can't believe it's been sitting on your shelf and you haven't given it a look.

    I really want to see The Departed, but before I do I made sure I saw the original Hong Kong film, Infernal Affairs and I absolutely loved it. The Departed will have to do a lot to match the style, atmosphere and overall greatness of Infernal Affairs.

    I also just saw Edmond starring William H Macy, in what was a really weird, but really fascinating film. It's not for the faint of heart and there's some really powerful acting by Macy as well as by Julia Stiles, who only has a very short role in the film. A really different and weird film, but an entertaining one nonetheless.

    So for this week,

    Infernal Affairs (2002) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338564/
    Edmond (2005) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0443496/
