Not counting Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, since we got 20 minutes through and turned it off. Lamezilla.

Booooooo. I disagree, and don't know how you thought the first 20 minutes was lame. It's non-stop hilarious.

More like non-stop fuckin' weird, spazzy, and almost downright uncomfortable to watch.  There wasn't a single joke in the first 20 minutes. What could one have possible laughed about?

Ah well. I guess we have different tastes in movies. I loved the terrible band. I love the awkward delivery. I loved stuff like "could we not make this a one night stand? For one thing I didn't even get any." Or, after she names 45 different types of teas, all he says is "did you make some of those up?" instead of answering the question. Or "you have a band? Yeah we're terrible. Please come?" or the way he's all proud of himself for meeting a girl even if she's 17 and he's all cute about it.

Okay, I'll stop now.

That's what I thought about Moulin Rouge, but lots of people swear it is the greatest thing they've ever seen.  Meh.

Hmmmm. When I saw Moulin Rouge in 2005 or so I know I had had ZERO desire to see it, but thought that it was much better than I was expecting. I felt it was original and pleasurable I suppose. I haven't seen it again, though, and have never had any desire to do so. But that doesn't mean I thought it was the worst movie ever.

Does that help with a sort of point-of-reference?

New to me movies are bolded.

1. Up In the Air
2. Bottle Rocket
3. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  I could have used a little bit more exposition, but visually amazing.
4. The Hangover Funny, but Bradley Cooper's character was annoying. Would have been better in the theater
5. Avatar 3-D version.  As has been stated before, so pretty
6. The House Bunny It didn't suck. And was way more conservative/traditional than I would have expected.
7. Keeping Mum Maggie Smith plays a psychopath, Rowan Atkinson plays a normal person, and Patrick Swayze plays a sleazy golf pro.
8. Tin Man Sy-fy mini series redoing "The Wizard of Oz".  Stick to the original, as Zooey D. is annoying and Alan Cumming is underused.
9. The Talented Mr. Ripley Who knew you could feel sympathy for a psychopath?
10. When in Rome Cute, predictable, and snappier than expected.
11. Gods and Monsters very quiet film, and interesting look at the director who created Frankenstein and Showboat.
12. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Animated Short Films
13. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Short Films
14. In Good Company Dennis Quaid = good, Scarlett Johannsen = I don't understand the appeal.
15. Shaun the Sheep off the Baa By Nick Park, lots of sheep shorts. Previews were for the under 5 yo crowd.
16. Alice in Wonderland 3D.  Just enough Johnny Depp.  Good flick, very fun, and remarkably not scary-creepy.
17. Saving Face Chinese lesbian living in New York tries to keep her life from her mother.
18. Hogfather Another Sy-Fy type movie. Really need to stop watching these, because they aren't as good as they should be.
19. Fanboys So fun, and the music was dead-on.  I'll leave all other fan-wanking to people more vested in Star wars.
20. How to Train Your Dragon 3-d.  I think I should be getting residuals for dragon-inspiration.  Toothless= dead ringer for my cat!
21. Sex, Lies, and Videotape- I still love James Spader, though he has creepy characters nailed.
22. 17 Again.  Sucked Again
23. The Proposal- not too bad on the plane
24. Four Rooms  Interesting combo of short films.  Tarantino is annoying, though.
25. Barbershop  Light movie, and pretty funny.  I'd heard it was good, and I definitely enjoyed it.
26. Babies very cute, and we westerners way smother our kids.  Look out for goats!
27. Shrek 4 It was what it was.  Needed more Gingy and Puss.
28. A Lot Like Love Ashton Kutcher is actually pretty good! I liked this movie alot- it would be a good one to watch again.
29. Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. Like the first one better, but NPH makes this one for me.
30. Leonard Maltin's Animation Favorites I'm counting these, because they are movie shorts. Sponsored by the Canadian Film board. Interesting, especially some of the really old ones. Thanks, Netflix.
31. Desk Set Hepburn/Tracy as a reference librarian and an efficiency expert.  Still very relevant to today, though google has made lots of the drama obsolete.  Very good!
32. Best in Show    Still very good, though I prefer a mighty wind
33.Toy Story      Haven't seen in years, but it was soooo good. Am ready to see the third part now!
34. Up     Again, Pixar does amazing things with stories.
35. Pinnochio    Came in half-way through, but I'm counting it as "seen".  Don't lie, or your nose will grow!
36. Toy Story 3 A delightful experience, and I admit, I was teary eyed multiple times.
37. Despicable Me Also fun, and amazingly light. Loved how Vortex's stuff was all Apple-y and seamless.
38. We are Marshall Those kids were babies.  Matthew McC. wasn't bad in this, amazingly
39. Bourne Identity   Time for the annual viewing! Damon is looking like a child in this one. Still so very good.
40. Ponyo Miyazaki does it again, nice tight story, interesting world was created, and the goldfish was red.
41. Pixar's Shorts, Vol. 1 Included the one with the lamp, which I hadn't seen, and the short that inspired Toy Story Very good!
42. Miami Vice  I just couldn't care, but was more excited to see Ciaran Hinds than Colin Farrell.
43. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  Better the second time around, still visually amazing.
44. Reality Bites.  Oh, Winona, you so made the wrong decision in this one! (Watching at 35 is very different than at 20)
45. You Again could have been better, but will work very well as a Saturday movie on TNT or something.
46. Easy A A very cute movie, and way more name actors than I expected.  Emma Stone did a great job carrying the movie.
47. Life as we Know It This movie was so made for women- Josh Duhmel w/o shirt, w/ baby, in motorcycle jacket, gets kiss close up.

48. Capote Really good, I liked that it wasn't about the murders specifically.  And the casualness of Harper Lee being there was great. Would have really liked a movie about her.

I liked the look of the film (except the fake snowfall) but it still seemed hokey to me for some reason. Last shot of McCabe was great.

More thoughts...
This has GOT TO BE the least "talky" of any of Robert Altman's movies.
Julie Christie's hair is an abomination in this movie. She looks worse than cat vomit. That ain't right.
The way the music was cut into the film was really odd. Yes, it's music by Leonard Cohen. But, it is just bizarre how it is randomly mixed into the film.
Keith Carradine was almost unrecognizable, yet easily my favorite character in the movie.

6. Beautiful Losers
7. It Might Get Loud
8. Sin Nombre
9. Bronson

13. The Damned United
14. Twilight: New Moon
15. Michael Jackson's This Is It
16. The Ghost Writer
17. The Informant
18. The Blind Side
19. Demolition Man
20. Sherlock Holmes
21. Capitalism: A Love Story

31. Alice In Wonderland
32. The A-Team
33. Toy Story 3
34. Inception
35. Clash of the Titans
36. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
37. Freakonomics: The Movie
38. The Social Network

39. Harry Potter and the Deathly Boredom Part 1 (2 out of 5) - They could've done a three hour movie of the book and I would've been ok with that. Instead, in this part at least, you get 25% of any real stuff going on and 75% of the main characters running in and out of tents. Literally. Everytime something interesting happens, they cut to the characters in the wilderness in tents running away from things that never show up. It was like the Blair Witch came around to rattle some branches and then Ron Weasley would stand in a corner moping because Harry and Hermoine are busy having Horcrux Ghost Sex (tm). I wanted to fall asleep, and almost wanted to walk out, but since I haven't read the books, I wanted to see the story; the story of Harry and Voldemort and Harry's friends and enemies, not tent pitching (in more ways than one).

25.  Ladies and Gentlemen: The Afghan Whigs

Details, please. I know not of what you speak.


Vizz, this is a documentary made by their sound guy, Steve Girton, while they were touring in the early 90s.  I actually saw it in Sept during Midpoint and never posted it.  The original thought was they would release it, but talking with John and listening to Steve, there seems to be a problem with licensing the music.

28. Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (1974)

That last one was very slow-paced and boring, but really kind of impressive for its time, at least we thought so, but it was pretty late at that point in the night.

It was like the Blair Witch came around to rattle some branches and then Ron Weasley would stand in a corner moping because Harry and Hermoine are busy having Horcrux Ghost Sex (tm). I wanted to fall asleep, and almost wanted to walk out, but since I haven't read the books, I wanted to see the story; the story of Harry and Voldemort and Harry's friends and enemies, not tent pitching (in more ways than one).
Since you haven't read the book, I'll just have to break the news to you that it followed the book very closely. There were a couple hundred of pages of not much happening, but just hanging out in a tent away from civilaztion.

Don't worry, though, the last part more than makes up for it in action.

It probably could have been 1 long movie, but it captured the feeling I had when reading the book - aren't they ever going to DO anything?

I figured that would be the price to pay for watching this book split into two movies... you get a boring one to set up the better half. Unfortunately, it was a disservice as a film, but probably made the book lovers happy.
