Re: Movie recommendations

Saw The Green Hornet in 3D yesterday, it was decent fun. The post-conversion 3D wasn't that impressive, in fact I think the film suffered for it. Besides that, it was funny and had some good action. Seth Rogen and Jay Chou have nice chemistry. Jay Chou kicks serious ass in his "Kato-vision" scenes, too.

Re: Movie recommendations

Has anybody seen this film yet? It's a British film that came out last year (I think it's up for a BAFTA for best new director) so it's possible it was released in Switzerland. Either way, it's out on DVD. It's called Exam



http://www.ign.com/videos/2010/01/06...he-invigilator

One word of advice to fellow Americans (like myself) who never heard of the word "invigilator" because I've never gone to a British university (or European university which has classes taught in British English). The American equivalent of "invigilator" is "proctor".

No spoilers, but the ending is very clever. You'll kick yourself if you don't figure out the correct answer (or question) to this exam.

Re: Movie recommendations

Hereafter.. raises a few serious questions, does not speak unnecessarily of religions but touches spirituality and the ties that we have to one another.
Only wish that it had taken the questions really in hand instead of lightly touching them with the finger tips.

I watched Black Swan at the weekend. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0947798/
There's a huge amount of Oscar buzz around Natalie Portman's performance and the film is getting really good reviews all over the place, but.........I didn't really go too much on it, neither did Mrs Pat's Ex.

I found i couldn't care much for any of the characters and was kind of unsure what the film was meant to be saying (ballet makes you go crazy or something, I don't know).

Anyway, this thread is for recommendations and despite what i think you should see it anyway
I saw it today and have to agree. I am sure there is some meaning there, but I didn't get the point....

Re: Movie recommendations

My recommendation is a hindi movie named Dabanng.
Actor - Salman Khan
Actress - Sonakshi Sinha (Debutant)

Story is not new but treatment is superb.1st half is awesome and 2nd half is more of emotional side. Dialogues are good. luvd the action (esp the climax one) music is excellent.Salman Khan (actor) is the real star and he proves it with Dabanng. Sonakshi (actress) is gr8. All the supporting cast is good.
Overall dabanng is a thorough entertainer.
This isn't meant for people who are looking for different cinema

hmm...I watched it yesterday and personally, I liked it.

Was intense, compelling and I thought Vincent Cassel and Natalie Portman were really good. It was very clever in blurring the lines between whats reality and whats not. Ballet doesnt make you go crazy - your love for your art and perfection does

Re: Movie recommendations

Portman gave such a powerhouse performance that I didn't think about any of the flaws the film might have had until it was over. I was so glued to the screen.

And I will forever thank Aronofsky for giving us that scene between Portman and Kunis.

Might be a bit old, but saw "Meet the little Fockers" over the w-e. Not as hilarious as the previous ones, but a good watch nevertheless

Re: Movie recommendations

Went to see The Borrower Arrietty (借りぐらしのアリエッティ, Karigurashi no Arietti) with my 16 year old daughter, because we are both suckers for Miyazaki films (Totoro, etc.). It was excellent, especially if you've got young kids. Also nostalgia for me, because I read the original (The Borrowers) cough,cough years agoand loved it.

With the very able support of Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush, even Keanu would do quite well.
(How slim Mr Firth has kept himself, the vain pot! Oh, well, it's his bread and butter.)

Re: Movie recommendations

Airdoll. One of those strange story I quite like.

It's the story of an inflatable doll that became alive, but she still can deflate....




it's a bit strange, but I found it was quite poetic

Re: Movie recommendations

Bollywood Hindi Movie "No One Killed Jessica" -
Based on the murder of model Jessica Lall (1999) in an uptown eatery in Delhi and her sister, Sabrina Lall's fight for justice, the film showcases contemporary India as it is.


Though I knew the story still I watched the movie.And I am happy that the picturization of the story is near real. I felt that the there was no sense in giving abusive language to both the actresses. I recommend that the movie should be seen atleast once.

"a bit strange"? Understatement, or wot? I don't mean to be facetious, Bertand, but that trailer just kept reminding me too much of




Finally got to see Inception a couple of nights ago; an excellent film right up to the point where it turns cr@p.
VIWING ADVICE: If you haven't seen it yet, watch it with someone who has, having told tell them to stop the film / take you outside before the lame-@ssed ending starts.

Would also give "No One Killed Jessica" a serious thumbs-up!

I saw the movie yesterday - they could probably have cut it with at least half an hour.... Believe the point was lost slightly during the movie, but the actor performances are quite good; I wouldn't be surprised to see a significant number of statuetes heading their way...

Never trust a trailer !!!!!

So many great films have a very bad trailers.

It's an asian movie, very different of the ones we "understand"...

To every one, give a try to asian movies, they are almost unknown here, but there's some great stuff.

Of course, you will need to look for subtitles....

Re: Movie recommendations

We Want Sex - not at all about sex!

this title is really stupid, as this film is the true story of Ford UK Dagenham womens' fight for equal pay in 1968. I found it very enjoyable, but there is a lot of bad language! At the end of the film the original ladies are interviewed. Epic milestone in European labour relations.

Baden, Basel, Bern, Biel/Bienne, Emmenbrücke, Grenchen, Lenzburg, Luzern, Rorbas-Freienstein, Schaffhausen, Sissach, St. Gallen, Uzwil, Winterthur, Zürich
