I'm a big fan of Fantastic Mr. Fox. We just watched it again and it was a hit with everyone from the 2 year old to grandma.
The dialog an voice acting are excellent, and the animation is really refreshing. The story is smart and is different enough from your …More
Watched In Bruges. Really not too bad. The British do good gangster movies - not shy about violence, but also layers of introspection and classical tragedy elements. I recommend it, worth seeing.
Update: I've watched the movie a couple of times since writing this, it's quite good. See it.More

It's the quintessential non-hollywood movie, consistently doing things …More

The movie has …More
I just saw Kung Fu Hustle . This is quite possibly the best movie ever made.
Ok, so maybe I exaggerate a little. But this is an excellent movie. Laugh out loud funny, and I'm not much of a laugher. Btw, Wachowski brothers, this is how a fight scene with one …More
