Maybe someone is also interested in cinema and new or recovered films. The relation to this forum is, that my recomments are for first to Mister Peter, but then for the whole baggage or mankind (you see, one of my most loved films with Melvin (Jack Nicolson) had to much influence on my thinking: dangerous!
So: Last film I saw was Woody Allen's 'You will meet a tall dark stranger' . This film for me was a dissapointment, because I loved his films from 1970 until 2000, because they pointed the psycho-lifestyle of that decade and then changed into a kind of romantic aerea with jazz-elements.
Now this film was more to kill some good filmstars as Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts and Antonio Banderas. They had not the farthing of chance to show there qualities.
Recommendation:4 of 10

Some Like It Hot(1959), The Odd Couple (1967)
Recommendation: 10 of 10
I'm sure Peter has seen them too!

Some like it hot is one of the best. And it helps a lot, that Peter has also seen The Odd Couple.
What's about Les enfants du Paradis (10)?

I was kidding, I don't know if Peter has seen them, but they are classics, so it's very likely he has!

LR-Did you read Sarah's Key? The most recent movie I went to was Burlesque. The burlesque scenes were very good, the singing good, but the story line itself weak.

Film, I want to see soon :
Small World, book Martin Suter, with Gerard Depardieu and A.M.Lara.
I am looking forward to this film, because Gerard Depardieu seldom disappoints me and the combination with the actress Anna Maria Lara maybe an interresting.
Depardieu in his last films is more and more near at the normal life with it's many catastrophes and happy moments. I also recomment him as the old dance-music singer in "chanson d'amour".
I want to do a compliment for the new french comedie films since "Amelie". A mixture of chaos, human love,good food and perspective dreams.Bravo!
I wished the italian films could be as good again.

And my new favorite movie, The Usual Suspects.

I watched Inception at the cinwema when it came out. I have mixed impressions about it, but mostly good ones.
The one I saw lately was Days Of Wine And Roses, which I liked a lot.

This evening I saw 'Small World' with Gerard Depardieu and Alexandra Maria Lara, and it was as good as I hoped for. It was a bit like an hitchcockian thriller in a close atmosphere.And one trick was, that the surroundings were as brilliant as they are in the newer Jane Austen films, so the Alzheimer theme was not annoying but sometimes refreshing in this pseudo perfekt lifestyle.

Went to see The new Narnia movie today. I do not want to give anything away, but while I was enthralled with the CG and 3D aspects, I felt they kept taking themes from other movies and it just got old for me.

I just watched Billy Elliott, and really enjoyed it. It was on BBC America. I know it's not a new movie, but I'd never seen it.

Hey, I watched that too Ela! Always enjoyed that movie.

On Friday evening as part of my work 'holiday' party, we saw The Fighter.
WOW! If great acting is what inspires you to see a film this is a MUST SEE! Unbelievable all the way around. Every performance is stellar, every performance is a trial in intensity. Truly, it was exhausting to watch but I can see why it has been nominated in every category and will undoubtedly bring home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in Christian Bale and potentially for Mark Wahlberg as lead, and best picture.
Truly a feat! Brilliant!!
I also have seen Inception, HereAfter and Narnia. Narnia was ok, not the best in the series and probably the last. HereAfter was good, powerful in it's own right and Inception- what just happened???
All around good movie making out there.
The thing I look most forward to at present is the celestial movie in the sky- the full moon lunar eclipse on Dec 21, 2010 ~~ Winter Solstice. There hasn't been a full moon, lunar eclipse on Solstice in well over 400 years. DON'T MISS IT!

Oh, Little Rainbow- you saw Tree of Life already? It's not out yet here. But wow, looks potent and a contender for the award season to come.
