I assume for crying and sniffling? No other reason, right? ;-) ;) :wink:

Pup watches a lot of movies with kleenex at hand and he never seems sad.

Just wondering.

How about Dogma and Mall Rats? Any credit for them gems?

Come on Mitch!


Yeah...should have included any Kevin Smith movie in the "doesn't suck" category.



Goonies?

Ok for Saturday morning.

Mall Rats? Seriously overrated. Great if you are a disaffected jersey teen who got taunted in the Paramus Mall. Other than that, I never even laughed. FWIW I feel the same way about Clerks. It could be me.

Dogma? Funny. You got me.

And how did I forget D & C ?

Speaking of Kevin Smith...Affleck, you were the bomb in Phantoms, yo. Phantoms like a ma'fuka.

Too cold to fish this weekend, so I picked up Green Street Hooligans, Closer, In the Valley of Elah, The Illousionist and Arlington Road. Football is over, Dex and Californication are gone, I need something to watch.

You know there's a basketball team in Cleveland right?

I've tried. Not my bag. I'll cheer for them, but I can only get through about 5 minutes of any game. SC highlights are just fine for me.

Ziner wrote:Mitch, hope you dont lead me wrong. Just adjusted the netflix queue of movies I have yet to catch. Coming up is Closer, Munich, Letters of Iwo Jima, and Michael Clayton. Im just going to work my way down the list of anything I find remotely exciting and then circle back for the ones that I dont.


Munich. If you really liked Schindler's List, you'll not regret renting this.

Closer. Fascinating movie about four very interesting characters who aren't that likable. Nowhere near as much of a downer as "Leaving Las Vegas", but an intense character study. Don't know if you saw "Revolutionary Road", but there are a lot of similarities...not in plot, but in how people are looked at in the film.

Letters From Iwo Jima. Fans of Blackhawk Down or We Were Soldiers will love this. So much better than "Flags of our Fathers". I'm about 100% sure you'll love this one.

Michael Clayton. Another character study, with a mystery thrown in. If there are any of these four that will cause you to write obscene things about me once you see it, this would be my guess (but I won't walk away from my recommendation...and Clooney does NOT play Clooney here...he's pretty much a loser still trying to trade in off his looks and charm, and not doing it very well).


Alright took me forever, but finally finished them all. See why I never saw them to start with? I watch about 2 movies a month

Munich - Very good, while slightly depressing I still enjoyed it. I did feel like parts of it dragged on and thought it ended

Closer - Eh, it was ok but I can see why others liked. Didnt hate it, didnt love it.

Letters of Iwo Jima - I really liked this one, but not a huge fan of subtitles. I am lazy, sorry. The story was very good though.

Michael Clayton - shockingly (perhaps to you) I liked this one the best this movie is the type I really enjoy.

Nice recommendations, I will have to keep working my way down the list, my netflix queue is running low. Any thoughts on public enemy? its next up. Then back to the list.
In the end, we're all "only for a limited time," you guys.

I'll give a VERY lukewarm "OK" to Public Enemies. Good action sequences, and Johnny Depp is great, as always, but Michael Mann can't tell a story worth shit (although he can shoot some action sequences). Plus, Christian Bale sucks again as Melvin Purvis.

Again, how does Bale ever get a gig?

Even Hayden Christenson says he's wooden and has no range.

I watched it with The 'Phist. Since he is multilingual, including having learned Japanese as c hild, he translated. Much more enjoyable.
