    I watched Wild Strawberries, which was directed by Ingmar Bergman. He's a great director. I liked the film a lot, but I think I like The Seventh Seal even more.

    Pyarr Impossible (Impossible Love). Bollywood film about a geek who finally gets a chance to try to get together with the beautiful girl from college he's secretly in love with, except that now she's divorced with a monster of a daughter. He becomes the daughter's nanny while simultaneously trying to deal with the fact that somebody stole the software he'd been developing.

    My mom sent it to me to teach me about romance. It was enjoyable, but it didn't rock my boat - I liked Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs better if we're talking nerd romance. I'm too stubborn and clueless to be taught about romance anyway.

    The best part of Pyarr Impossible is when the guy brings a present to the daughter, and says flatly, "This is a bribe. Can we be friends?"

    I last watched one of my all time most adored films: Punch-Drunk Love. The scoring, cinematography, and overall story elements (which portray a strange fellow fixated on a few peculiar schemes, with intermittent explosive disorder [it seems], largely misunderstood by his 7 sisters, coworkers, and everyone else, as he becomes the victim to a fraudulent and bullying scheme and how he deals with it, while also finding love) completely capture me. Barry Egan is a huge influence on the expression of my identity, and has been ever since I first watched the film.

    another with this same effect is Lost in Translation. It was an easy pick with my love of the Japanese and their language and culture. Throw in Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson and you have a total win.

    Just back from the cinema and seen The Expendables with some friends. It was good but the storyline could have been better. Before that I seen the A Team which was good too.

    "Kick Ass" on DVD. I originally saw it a the cinema, but wanted to watch it at home with less distractions. I really like this movie because it seems to have very twisted morality jokes in it. Plus, I like comic books and action movies and this had a little of each.

    No you are not...I'd sit and watch movies all day everyday if I could...I love movies. My problem is I tend to forget the titles and actors names (probably because I watch so many). Last week when I had a couple of days to myself, I watched around 10+ movies back to back.

    just watched 'the killer inside me'....hid behind a chair for some of it. just stunningly violent. i wouldn't let gort watch it, might give him ideals.......it stars ben affleck's little brother, the one who was so good in the brilliant film 'gone baby gone', and he is, of course the killer. if you liked the movie 'martyrs', you would probably like this. otherwise, i would suggest you stay away.

    Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. A film adaptation of a musical by Sondheim, although I haven't seen the musical. I was scared to watch this film because I don't like gore overmuch, but I wanted to see it because I like Tim Burton's movies and because I've heard people cultural-reference it before. I actually enjoyed it. Strange juxtaposition of dark/violent elements and humor. The music was great. I will watch it again before returning it to the friend I borrowed it from.

    Watched Werner Herzog's new-to-DVD My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done last night. It has its moments, and the performances are all good, but I'm not sure it really adds up to much. Still, iIf you're a fan of Herzog or producer David Lynch, you'll want to see it.

    What's the last film you watched?

    I'm starting an anime series called Haibane Renmei. It'll probably take me a few days to watch the entire series as it's quite long, but that's fine.

    I'm not too fond of anime and mostly watch it with my niece (I pretty much always watch anime when I'm with her), but this series looks very promising. I was captivated by the animation in the series Texhnolyze and decided to check out other series where the character design was done by Yoshitoshi Abe. His character designs are brilliant and unlike anything else I've seen in anime.

    I watched Buried with my brother and a friend last week. I didn't know much about the storyline other than some guy was trapped underground. Overall I found it to be good despite the entire movie just focusing on the one guy/actor and location (underground). It was something different for me.

    I want to see that, but it's not playing anywhere near me. Probably have to just wait for the Blu-Ray.

    I watched Stroszek about an hour ago. I liked it quite a lot actually. I may watch it again sometime soon.
