Comedy: Recently Added
1-10 of 22

An entertaining comedy that makes people laugh and feel good. Now that is what I call something special.

There is something that is nice about a movie that knows what it is and does not take itself too seriously. The Hangover is one of these films. Here is a picture that does not strive for greatness- it just wants to make you laugh. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Doug (Justin Bartha) is getting married in two days to Tracy (Sasha ...

Brüno

Genre: Comedy

The main problem with BRUNO is that this mockumentary isn’t as realistic or believable as BORAT.

I watched the R rated version on DVD – the version that had been prohibited in Australian cinemas. I wish I hadn’t. I was flashed a good 30 second screen shot of Sacha Baron Cohen’s penis shouting “Bruno” and I’m still recovering from the post traumatic stress of that frightful vision. The main problem with BRUNO is that this mockumentary isn’t as ...

A good try at Christmas humour but somehow it is lacking true mirth and good cheer.

Christmas draws nigh again and on its tail is a trail of Hollywood movie offerings released to lighten the pockets of holiday viewers. I missed the release of FOUR CHRISTMASES last year, but it has arrived on DVD this year on Santa’s sleigh. For some reason a lot of Christmas movies feature dysfunctional people in dysfunctional families, and ...

It's one full of witty lines that'll keep you smiling most of the time.

AWAY WE GO, by acclaimed director Sam Mendes, is his most different movie. All of his other pictures (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, JARHEAD, ROAD TO PERDITION and AMERICAN BEAUTY) are in-your-face, big films, full of very dramatic moments. They have their funny bits, but their underlying tone is always dark and foreboding. In a complete change of pace for ...

I found the characters very annoying and too angry for my liking.

If I had to pick a movie about shopping mall security to watch it would not be OBSERVE AND REPORT. Starring two likeable comic actors, Seth Rogen and Anna Faris (who I thought was hilarious in THE HOUSE BUNNY), I was particularly disappointed with the final outcome. Like PAUL BLART: MALL COP – the other popular mall security movie of 2009 – the ...

One of the silliest attempts at movie humour to hit our screen.

I’m not sure where to begin with this movie. Frankly, I’m almost at a loss for words after viewing LAND OF THE LOST (2009) and being bombarded with images of one of the silliest attempts at movie humour to hit our screen. I should have seen this coming, after all it stars Will Ferrel, but even this is considered pretty low in the long list of ...

Alan Rickman gives another wonderful droll performance.

If you are expecting a road movie, mixed in with wine and melodrama, BOTTLE SHOCK is not another SIDEWAYS. Wine and the California Nappa Valley are probably the only things these movies have in common. BOTTLE SHOCK is set in 1976 during a period of time when the emerging wine industry of California was trying to find an identity for itself, and ...

Be ready to groan loudly through most of the film's first scenes.

In GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST, Connor Mead (Matthew McConaughey) is forced to see ghosts. This reimagining of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is mainly set in a beautifully snowy season that looks for all intents and purposes like Christmas, but the film is being released in May, which feels weirdly incongruous. The Christmas connection continues, however, ...

Fling

Genre: Comedy

A great movie that will entertain.

Fling (2008) is also known as Lie to Me abroad and explores the alternative lifestyle of an open relationship. Samantha (Courtney Ford) and Mason (Steve Sandvoss) are both successful in their work and on the outside appear to be in a loving relationship; and they are. They laugh, go out, live together, and have a strong bond unlike many couples. A...

__domel__body => '&lt;p&gt;There is something that is nice about a movie that knows what it is and does not take itself too seriously. The Hangover is one of these films. Here is a picture that does not strive for greatness- it just wants to make you laugh. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Doug (Justin Bartha) is getting married in two days to Tracy (Sasha Barrese). His best friends Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Stu (Ed Helms) decide to take Doug to Las Vegas for a night of debauchery- an extended bachelors night to celebrate male freedom before Doug is forced to succumb to marriage, that great mystical journey that men take that somehow castrates them. As an offer of diplomacy (and charity) Doug agrees to take his soon-to-be brother in law, Alan (Zach Galifianakis) on the trip- this decision will come to haunt him mere hours later. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;If you are reading this you probably know the plot. The four men (boys?) get wasted and end up waking up the next day with a killer hangover. As Stu, Phil and Alan awake they discover themselves in a 4200.00 a night destroyed hotel room, a live chicken, a crying baby stuffed in a closet, and a Bengal tiger in the bathroom. To make matters worse, Stu (a dentist) loses both an incisor and an engagement ring (or, more appropriately, his grandmother’s “holocaust ring”), Phil has a hospital band around his wrist, and no one has any idea where the hell Doug is. All of this happens in the first twenty minutes of the movie. From this point on, the film is a non-stop comedy, placing our three heroes in bizarre situation after situation. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;I think it is fitting to point out that a lesser film would have included the bachelor party, and ended with the gentlemen waking up in a hotel room. The “Bachelor Party picture” is as cliché as the romantic comedy. The Hangover works so well because it keeps the party off of the screen. The film works, on a certain level anyway, like a mystery. We become invested in the story because we actually do want to know where Doug is, who the baby belongs to, and where the hell the tiger came from. The journey takes us to some strange places, but one thing is certain, we never stop laughing. This is one of the best broad comedies in years. Even when I wasn’t laughing out loud at the film, I always found myself smiling about the plight of the characters. As someone who has had his fair share of crazy nights, I can picture some friends of mine getting themselves into these types of situations. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The film is another in a long line of “bromantic comedies” surrounding men and their desire to escape maturity. It is not necessarily the best (that would be “The 40 Year-Old Virgin”) but it is one of the funniest and most accessible. The film is certainly profane (four letter words aplenty) but it is not as lewd as some of the other films that have hit theaters recently. While nudity and nonstop sex jokes definitely don’t bother me (I have a vivid imagination) they can prevent certain comedies from being enjoyed on a universal level. The Hangover is funny not because of its willingness to gross us out, or push the R rating even, but because it has genuinely funny situations and characters. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;While I will not say that the heroes in The Hangover are the most complex to ever grace the screen, they have enough depth to make them interesting. Stu is a cuckold who has a cheating girlfriend (the hilarious Rachael Harris) who treats him like trash. He dresses like she packed his clothes for him and is forced to lie about going to Vegas. This is not necessarily a caricature; I have seen countless men in similar situations- lacking the self confidence to stand up for themselves. Phil, the leader of the group, could have easily been the most one-dimensional character in the film, yet for some reason we understand his need to escape from the confines of his life with his wife and child. As pleasant as adulthood may be there is always a side to most men that wants to go crazy and be free, if even for one night. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Then there is Alan. The real discovery in this picture is the great Zach Galifianakis playing the child like buffoon. Galifianakis’s performance as Alan will be this generation's Bluto. I may be overreacting, but I think the performance is Oscar worthy. What makes Galifiankis so funny is the fact that he plays Alan completely straight. When Alan asks the concierge at Caesar’s Palace if Caesar actually lived there, we laugh out loud because the look on Alan’s face is so innocent and earnest. If you have seen the movie, watch it again. This time pay close attention to the Galifianakis’s performance. He could be in a drama he plays the character so deadpan. There is not a moment of over-acting in the performance, only exceptional comic timing and the ability to play completely dry. Alan has the film’s best lines, but it is only because Galifianakis makes them the best lines through his delivery. Mark my words, twenty years from now people may not remember the intricacies in the plot of The Hangover, but they will remember Alan- just like no one remembers anything else that happened in National Lampoon’s Animal House, but they remember John Belushi’s Bluto. They are both iconic performances. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The director, Todd Phillips, has a gift for situational comedy. His Old School was one of the funniest films of the decade, and here he surpasses himself. While one can give credit to the screenwriters, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, for the jokes and situations, it is Phillips who directed the actors and knew when to cut, and what takes to use. He is by no means the best comedic director working today (that would be Judd Apatow) but he is the best at this type of broad comedy. I think this is why I didn’t include The Hangover in my recent “Best of” list for the decade. In hindsight, it was a mistake. Here is a film that you really don’t appreciate on the first viewing. I remember watching the film for the first time. My wife and I laughed, and when it was over said “that was a funny movie” and went about our business. We watched it again recently, and this time I knew the gags were coming so I was able to pay more attention to the performances, direction, and choices. It was on this second viewing I discovered the brilliance of The Hangover- it is a movie that completely and totally knows what it is and what it’s about. It is not trying to be a “comedy with heart” or a “message movie.” Phillips, along with the cast, just wants us to enjoy ourselves. There is not a love story tacked on for female audiences, or a touching moment of bromance at the end, it is just the story of four misfits in Vegas. A weaker director would have insisted on developing themes, or adding a heartwarming moment. I kept expecting a scene with Tracy leaving Doug and then Doug winning her back, or some nonsense. It never happens. This is because Phillips is confident in his direction and his decisions. He doesn’t care what the movie could be; only what it is- an entertaining comedy that makes people laugh and feel good. Now that is what I call something special. Now if only I could figure out where the hell that chicken came from. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;NOTE- There are many surprises in The Hangover. I have failed to mention appearances by Heather Graham, Ken Jeong and Mike Tyson. These actors are wonderful and are in the movie because they fit. Could you imagine anyone else? &lt;/p&gt;'

It doesn’t even come close. I couldn’t believe in the persona of BRUNO, that this was a male model from Austria trying to make it big in the Entertainment industry in the US. Whilst I could believe in the persona of BORAT, a good will ambassador from Kazakhstan who had come to learn the cultural ways of the USA.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt; A lot of the situations set up for this Austrian model entertainer seem staged and artificial and are not particularly funny. However, one has to give some kudos for Sacha Cohen for being able to physically transform himself into a blonde, gay model – he is virtually unrecognisable from his Ali G and Borat personas. I also feel that Sacha Cohen tries overly hard in this movie to try to outdo and out shock what he achieved with Borat. I found Borat genuinely funny in some scenarios, exposing some great flaws in the Myth that America is the greatest nation on earth. However, the scenarios in BRUNO are just crude and shocking for the sake of being crude and shocking. A good example is the flapping penis waving about the screen, screaming “Bruno”.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt; Other offensive scenes include a simulated gay sex leather scene where he is leather bound to his Austrian lover and hopping around town. Trying to sneak into the tents of male hunters in the middle of the night was just creepy. Trying to learn martial arts from an expert in order to defend against gay men was silly. Serving food on a fat naked person whilst interviewing Paula Abdul and sitting on Mexican workers was distasteful. Not even the sing a long at the end with Bono (U2) and Elton John could save this movie. Personally, I felt that they looked uncomfortable on screen chirping out the words of some bizarre song. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt; My main gripe with BRUNO is that I just didn’t find it funny at all. &lt;/p&gt;'

The 40 Year-Old Virgin&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> It many ways I suppose The 40 Year-Old Virgin is the birth of the bromantic comedy. There have been numerous rip off's of this formula (vulgar with a heart) over the last several years, but there are none that exhibit the spirit and general hilarity of this movie. Here is a film that makes you constantly laugh while caring about the characters. The 40 Year-Old Virgin introduced the world to Judd Apatow (Virgin, Knocked-Up, Funny People) who is perhaps the smartest person in comedy today. This movie would be on the list due to its fantastic ending alone. This is a perfect background movie- you can sit and listen to it while doing other things (unless your family is over). <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> A true movie with a heart. This film is significant not only in its ability to make us laugh, but its ensemble cast as well. This is the film that introduced the world to not only Judd Apatow, but Steve Carell, Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Jane Lynch. Catherine Keener is brilliant as well. What a wonderful movie. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;24. The Bourne Ultimatum&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;The Bourne Ultimatum&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/TheBourneUltimatum.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The Bourne Ultimatum could very well be the best pure action film of the decade. The action starts from the very beginning and is relentless until the end. The promises of the earlier, more uneven, installments in the Bourne franchise are all realized here. Matt Damon does an exceptional job in these films of giving his character realism and heart while also being engaged with ridiculous action sequences. The quick-editing, loathed by some in The Bourne Supremacy, is also tamed down here- with more coherent shots that focus on telling the story. If you are a fan of twists, car chases, fight scenes, or mystery there are few better experiences out there. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;23. Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Borat&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/Borat.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Sascha Baron Cohen creates one of the most ingenious and outrageous filmmaking devices with his creation of the character Borat Sagadiyev. Based on his alter-ego from HBO's Da Ali G Show, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America Make Benefit for Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is funniest movie of the decade. It is certainly one of the funniest pictures of all time. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> In Borat, Cohen has created a loveable yet horribly racist, sexist and grotesque character. He then inserts the fictional character into real world situations. The comedy stems from the actions of Borat, but the brilliance and importance of the film comes from the human element- the people that do not know they are part of an act. It is amazing what people will do or say when they do not think someone is watching. Borat is just dumb enough, foreign enough, for them to put their guards down. We know Baron Cohen is joking when he is talking about the Jews, the homosexuals, or the inferiority of women- his real life co-stars do not. In his ridiculous set pieces, Cohen creates a portrait of the real American psyche- and it is certainly not as flattering as one would hope. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> But this is not to say that Borat is weighed down with seriousness. On the contrary, there are moments in this film of such audacity that they will be forever engrained in the history of comedic film. Cohen is fearless in his relentless attempts to garner a laugh. He puts himself in great physical danger in these elaborate set pieces, yet never breaks character. I read that Cohen was arrested multiple times in the making fo the film, and one particular set piece (the Rodeo scene in which Cohen sings the &quot;Kazakhstan National Anthem&quot; almost caused him to be lynched. Ironically, Cohen was not arrested in the films most outrageous (and hilarious) segment, in which he is involved in a fully nude wrestling match with his agent Asamat (Ken Davitian) in a crowded hotel. This is a movie to watch with a respirator near by.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;22. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/EternalSunshineoftheSpotlessMind.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&quot;How happy is the blameless vestal's lot?&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The world forgetting, by the world forgot.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Each prayer accepted and each wish resigned.”&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> - Alexander Pope<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Now here is a love story! Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, written by the extraordinary screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and directed by Michel Gondry, is a one of a kind modern love story. It is always unconventional- there is never a non-original moment in the film. It is this that makes is so special. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> What would you do if you could erase a loved one from your memory? If the loved one died, or left you, or broke your heart would you want to forget they ever existed? This is the central question posed to both Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet- in her best performance). Clementine is angry at Joel, you see, so she decides to see Dr. Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson) at Lacuna, Inc. and have her memory erased. Joel of course finds out about this, and decides he will show her. He chooses to erase his memory of Clementine. But what happens if he decides halfway through the procedure that he changed his mind? <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The themes of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind are, well, eternal. Love, loss, relationships, and the importance of memories are explored in heartbreaking detail in this film. Carrey gives his best performance here. He is subdued and relaxed, there is never a moment when the Jim Carrey that bends over and talks out his ass enters the scene. Kate Winslet is magical, as are all of the supporting performances by the likes of Kristin Dunst, Elijah Wood, David Cross, Jane Adams and Mark Ruffalo. While I do not consider it Kaufman’s best work, a Charlie Kaufman screenplay is the equivalent of Shakespeare. This is a film that is in good company. The best love story of the decade. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;21. The Departed&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;The Departed&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/TheDeparted.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I love being in familiar territory. Watching The Departed is like putting on your favorite hooded sweatshirt. It is always comfortable, it is cozy, and fits just right. Martin Scorsese (the greatest living American director) returns to form in The Departed, but instead of cruising down the mean streets of New York City, so carefully examined in Scorsese classic’s Taxi Driver, Mean Streets and Goodfellas, we take on new city- Boston. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The villain is Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson), a mob boss that doesn’t really pretend not to be a mob boss. The other villain is Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon), the member of the State Police on Costello’s payroll. Then there is Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio), the undercover cop that is forced to be a criminal. But wait! There’s more. You see, Costello is also sort of a cop too… but I am getting ahead of myself. The Departed is about the roles in which we give ourselves. There is a tagline on the poster. “Cops or Criminals. When you are facing a loaded gun, what’s the difference?” The tagline desribes the entire film. Each character is in a role that they don’t want to be in; their role is that of the rat, the informant- the most dishonorable role any person can ever posses, at least according to the mob. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Scorsese has not been this great in years. From the opening sequence, featuring the Rolling Stones “Gimmie Shelter” (a staple of Goodfellas, Casino, and his recent Stones documentary Shine a Light) we know that we are back in a place that will make us happy. We smile, put our feet up, and watch the movie in all of its Roman Catholic symbolism glory. When it comes to Catholic guilt, there is no one better than Scorsese. It seems fitting that the film ends the way it does. After all, who wants a rat in their home? <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I would be a liar to say that I didn’t tear up a bit on Oscar night 2007, when The Departed won for both Best Picture and Director. Our greatest director has evaded the top prize for years. Seeing him with a statue brought a joy to my heart. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;20. Children of Men&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Children of Men&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/ChildrenofMen.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Alfonso Cuaron’s Children of Men is one of two great science fiction films of the decade (the other one is coming up). The opening scene, in which our hero Theo (Clive Owen) learns that the last child born on the planet has died before nearly escaping a terrorist bombing, is among the best pre-credit sequences of any film. The merits of that scene alone could have set the film up for failure (after all, if your opening scene is classic, where do you go from there?) but the film continues on like a train to hell, stopping to pick up passengers on the way. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The picture is dark and relentless. This is a world without hope. Civilization is aware it is on the brink of extinction, and there is nothing they can do about it. London is one of the only habitable countries on Earth, war and destruction has destroyed most other countries- including the United States. Theo learns from his ex lover Julian (Julianne Moore) that there may be hope. Theo joins her and discovers Kee (Clare-Hope Ashitey) a young girl that just happens to be pregnant. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> From this realization onward the plot is more or less a MacGuffin intended to set up one sensational sequence after another. Cuaron has created an utterly realistic world- this could quite possibly be what ours would look like in the end times. Characters have no motivation but a quick death, and some even want the apocalypse to come for religious reasons. Using a variety of filmmaking techniques, Cuaron directs Children of Men almost like a war epic. Characters flee from gunfire in long tracking shots, without cuts. It is all there, all real on the screen. This is one of the most technically solid films ever made. If you are a fan of hard science-fiction, you must see this movie. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;19. 4 Months, 3 weeks, 2 days&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;4 Months, 3 weeks, 2 days&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/4Months3weeks2days.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> There are few performances better than that of Anamaria Marinca as Otilia in 4 months, 3 weeks, 2 days. Her performance is one of the most naturalistic I have ever seen. This is a great film about a harrowing subject- a black market abortion in communist Romania in the late 1980's. There is not a false note on any performances or the writing; every act in this film is within the scope of each character. This is not necessarily a film I want to revisit repeatedly due to the subject matter- but that does not mean it is not great. The Cannes Film Festival awarded 4 months, 3 weeks, 2 days with the prestigious Palm D'or. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Technically, the film is astounding. Entire sequences play on without the slightest cut. There is a dinner sequence in the middle of the film that lasts for nearly 20 minutes. Otilia has left her friend at a hotel. Her friend has just had an abortion by an evil man that also virtually raped both women out of coercision. Otilia is forced to leave her friend to meet her boyfriends parents. From the moment she sits down to the time she gets up from the dinner table, over fifteen minutes have passed. There are no cuts, it is all done in one take, with nearly 8 actors in the scene. This is not only masterful filmaking, but outstanding acting as well. The entire time the camera is focused on Marinca, as she twitches and ticks- knowing her friend may be dying. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The political subtext of the picture is also profound. The film is not overtly political, but the subtext is. Abortion is illegal in the communist state, but so are many other things. We see glances of Otilia buying black market cigarettes, and she is forced to go into a field of study she has no interest in just to prevent herself from being forced to go to a work farm for women. In the end, this may be the one of the most feminist movies of all time. It shows the strengths, as well as the terror of independence. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;18. Inglourious Basterds&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Inglourious Basterds&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/InglouriousBasterds.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino’s best film since Pulp Fiction, takes place in an alternate reality. It changes American history by rewriting the ending to World War II. Some critics and viewers have been vocal about this, going as far as to call the film sacrilegious. I say that, unless a movie is a documentary, it is always a work of fiction. It ends on the screen. That being said, if the characters in Inglorious Basterds were real, the war very well may have ended the way it does in the film. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> This is bold, electrifying filmmaking. Tarantino has never made a bad picture, but here hey surpasses himself. There are sequences here that work on so many levels that entire film class lectures could be given about them. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Take for example, the opening sequence. A dairy farmer (Denis Menochet) is harboring Jews by hiding them under his floorboards. Col. Hans Landa (the magnificent Christoph Waltz) knows that they are there, but insists on conversing with the farmer anyway. They switch freely back and forth between English and French, and at two points the characters decide to light their respective pipes. The farmer has a corn-cob pipe, the colonel has a pipe that looks like the end of a mighty Nazi trumpet. It is in moments like this that we perk up and smile, knowing we are in a world that could only be crafted by Tarantino. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The performances are all larger than life. Waltz’s Col. Landa is the best of the lot, but Brad Pitt and Melanie Laurent also shine. Pitt in particular, gives an incredibly skilled comedic performance as Lt. Aldo Raine, and his opening sequence is as beautiful as anything in Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. We love these characters, even the evil ones. We know Tarantino is having a good time- after all, we are. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;17. Donnie Darko&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Donnie Darko&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/DonnieDarko.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> There have been very few directorial debuts as ambitions as Richard Kelly’s Donnie Darko. The film is a wonderland of metaphysics, in which time traveling bunnies (at least, characters in bunny outfits) are harbingers of doom. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Donnie (Jake Gylenhaal) has emotional problems. He is struggling to fit in at school and resents being the middle child in the family. He seems to live in a nice home and his parents seem to love him very much, but Donnie is still angry and frightened for what’s to come. Things don’t get any better once he starts seeing Frank (James Duval), a six foot tall, creepy as hell bunny that tells him the world will end in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. From this point on Donnie just doesn’t know what to do with himself. He draws inward, but Frank will just simply not stop showing him things. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I will stop there. To spoil the pleasure of seeing Donnie Darko for the first time would be a sin. I will simply say that it is an experience that you need to stay awake through. I would advise you take some notes while watching with a friend. You will want to compare them when it is over. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;16. Mulholland Dr.&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Mulholland Dr.&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/MulhollandDr.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> To this day I still don't know what the hell David Lynch's Mulholland Dr. is about. I just know that it is mesmerizing. It is like a giant puzzle, I know that somewhere, somehow the pieces are supposed to go together, but for some reason I just can’t get them to fit. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> This is a discussion piece if there ever has been one. Different people come up with different theories about the film. The only thing I was able to figure out was that Betty (Naomi Watts) is actually Rita (Laura Elena Harring), and that once the box is opened everything begins to change. But was everything already altered from previous acts in the film? And, who in the hell was behind that dumpster? These questions are maddening. All I know is that Lynch is either purely genius or purely psychotic, either way he has made a hypnotic film. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The DVD case gives some clues to uncovering the film’s mystery:<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Pay particular attention in the beginning of the film: At least two clues are revealed before the credits.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Notice appearances of the red lampshade.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Can you hear the title of the film that Adam Kesher is auditioning actresses for? Is it mentioned again?<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> An accident is a terrible event — notice the location of the accident.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Who gives a key, and why?<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Notice the robe, the ashtray, the coffee cup.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> What is felt, realized, and gathered at the Club Silencio?<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Did talent alone help Camilla?<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Note the occurrences surrounding the man behind Winkie's.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Where is Aunt Ruth?<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Yeah. I still can’t figure it out. Who cares? This is one dizzying, magnificent movie. The entire film plays like a dream. I have seen it probably six times and each time I watch it I peel back a layer- like an onion. The world of the movie rests on the tortoise, get rid of one tortoise and there is another. It is just turtles, all the way down. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;15. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/HarryPotterandthePrisonerofAzkaban.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Prisoner of Azkaban is the best film to date in the Harry Potter franchise. This is the movie that best translates the essence of the fantastic novels by J.K. Rowling. Directed by the brilliant Alfonso Cauron (who actually has more films on this list than any other filmmaker) it is the most visually arresting experience in the franchise. Perhaps it is ironic that the best of the Harry Potter films is also the shortest. There were storylines that were cut out for this movie but the experience is not compromised. What is important about an adaptation is how it works on its own merit and not necessarily the faithfulness to the source material. The first two films were great children's movies, but a little too saccharine. The remaining movies (with possibly the exception of The Half-Blood Prince) have been too staccato in the storytelling, causing a rigid and uneven experience. Prisoner of Azkaban does not have these pitfalls; it is a wonderful entertainment from beginning to end. Sure, there are times the acting is not great (these are children, after all) but the world is there on the screen, and the emotional payoff of the climax (Harry and the Dementors) is one for the ages. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;14. Antichrist&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Antichrist&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/Antichrist.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The most disturbing film I have ever seen, it will haunt you for days after seeing it. This film by Lars Von Trier is probably the most controversial movie on the list. It has acts of graphic violence and despair that are worse than anything seen in mainstream &quot;torture-porn.&quot; That being said, Antichrist is a masterpiece. The emotions, as raw as they are, are very real. The performances by William Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg are both worthy of Oscar recognition, though they will not receive it. You will never look at a fox the same way again. Von Trier has created a truly unique piece, and inverted world- and the results are unimaginable. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;13. The Squid and the Whale&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;The Squid and the Whale&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/TheSquidandtheWhale.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The Squid and the Whale is one of the best movies I have ever seen about divorce, particularly the effect that divorce has on children. This small film, less than 100 minutes long and shot on a shoestring budget, has given me more to think about regarding the family dynamic that any other film in years. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The film tells the story of the Berkman family. Bernard (Jeff Bridges) and Joan (Laura Linney), the father and mother, are both New York intellectuals. She writes for the New Yorker and is getting ready to be published, while he was a successful writer for many years but has recently become a washed out Junior College creative writing professor. She is cold and uncompromising, he is an arrogant ass. These are two people that do not need to be married. When they sit down their children Walt (Jesee Eisenberg) and Frank (Owen Kline, the son of Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates) both children immediately begin to take sides. Frank sides with Mommy, Walt with Daddy. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> There are the obvious dramas about murder, torture, disease, famine and war, and there are the true dramas, the realistic ones. All 4 members of the Berkman family are realistic people with realistic problems. Bernard loves his wife but is too arrogant to admit it. He is so caught up on himself, and even goes about giving his son horrible advice, going as far as telling him to have sex with his new girlfriend before dumping her, for practice. Joan has not always been faithful to Bernard, but loves him too much to let him go. Both children are terribly screwed up, yet we sense that they will grow up and do great things. In all actuality – they did. The film is written and directed by Noah Baumbach, based on some personal experiences he has. How much do you want to bet that Frank and Walt end up writing a movie someday? Who knows- it may be as good as The Squid and the Whale. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;12. There Will Be Blood&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;There Will Be Blood&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/ThereWillBeBlood.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Daniel Day Lewis gives one of the most powerful performances in the history of film as Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood. It will only be surpassed by one other performance this decade. This performance alone cements There Will Be Blood as one of the great movies. Most magical is that this film has so much more going for it than just Day Lewis. The story is told such an elegant, straight-forward way that it is as if we are watching a documentary unfold. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> There have been many critics that have claimed that this film is a character study, however I feel that it is also one of the best epics of the decade. The oil derrick fire is on par with the fire in Gone with the Wind, and the rugged landscape of California creates a setting as majestic as any in a Sergio Leone picture. Paul Dano is superb as both Paul and Eli Sunday. The ending of the film is unforgettable; I will never look at bowling the same way again. This could have easily been in the top ten in any other decade.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;11. Minority Report&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Minority Report&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/MinorityReport.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Minority Report, the best science fiction film since Blade Runner, is the best work that Steven Spielberg has done this decade. It is based on a Phillip K. Dick(Blade Runner, Total Recall) story, and is an outstanding combination of science fiction and film noir. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The story stars Tom Cruise as John Anderton, one of the head officers in the future Washington D.C.’s elite Precrime unit. Using a group of psychic children (Precogs) the police have developed a way of preventing and prosecuting crime before it occurs. Even think about killing your wife, and within minutes a SWAT team will be at your door, placing a halo around your head, and sending you to prison. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The system is flawless. Since its inception Washington D.C. has not had a single homicide. The opening sequence of the film shows the entire Precrime process. As a man that is about to kill his wife and her lover is escorted away, he cries and screams- “I didn’t do anything.” The moral and constitutional implications of such a system clearly escape the government as well as Anderton. That is, until Anderton sees that he is slated to commit murder in roughly 24 hours. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> From this realization on, Minority Report becomes a nonstop action picture. Anderton must flee from his own police force with retnal scanners and identity tracers everywhere. In order to get to bottom of the murder (which must be a setup) he is required to use all of the ingenuity he can find. The result is Spielberg’s most electrifying work, with special effects seamlessly blending into this detective story. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I love this movie. There are moments of excitement, such as the thrilling sequence in which robotic “spiders” search an entire city block looking for Anderton; or, the fantastic sequence towards the end of the movie with John and Agatha (Samantha Morton- one of the Precogs) evade escape through a futuristic shopping mall to the tune of Andy Williams’s Moon River. There are many twists, turns, revelations and surprises; there is never a dull moment, nor should there be- after all we are in Spielberg’s hands. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;10. Synecdoche, New York&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Synecdoche, New York&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/SynecdocheNewYork.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;a href = 'http://www.filmnet.com/reviews/synecdoche_new_york_by_shaunhenisey/'&gt;Click here&lt;/a&gt; to read Shaun Henisey's review of Synecdoche, New York. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;9. Pan's Labyrinth&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Pan's Labyrinth&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/PansLabyrinth.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Pan's Labyrinth is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. From its gothic and bizarre creatures, to the bleak realism of life during the Spanish Civil War, the film never misses a beat. The production design, sets, costumes and make up are all like something you have never seen before. These factors alone would make Pan's Labyrinth one of the best movies of the decade. What transcends the film from good to great is the story that goes with the images. The plot is as simple as a fairytale, but intertwined with the realities of war.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Guillermo Del Toro, the director, has created a world in which fantasy and reality collide. Del Toro never explains anything. We are unsure if we are watching a pure fantasy picture, in which the supernatural elements are actually happening, or if it all takes place in the child's mind. Both are adequate interpretations of the film. Del Toro leaves it all open for us. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> This is not a film for children- this is an adult's fairy tale. Some of the images in the dreamscapes, in particular the Pale Man, are horrifying and beautiful at the same time. This is an older form of fairy tale- one that Lewis Carroll or The Brothers Grimm could have created. The juxtaposition of the fairy tale and the elements of war is also fantastic. Lopez plays Vidal as one sick and cruel bastard. He kills indiscriminately and is the very definition of an abusive parental figure. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Del Toro has made one of the most artistic films of the decade. The fact that he wrote, directed, and designed many of the creatures himself makes him a true auteur. The boldness of mixing two genre's as completely opposite as a war film and a fairy tale could have resulted in one of the most uneven and ridiculous motion pictures ever. Instead it succeeds on every level. This is most unique and moving viewing experiences of my life; a masterpiece of world cinema.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;8. Almost Famous&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Almost Famous&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/AlmostFamous.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &quot;Here is a movie that makes me unconditionally happy. Watching it puts a huge smile on my face and a swell in my throat. &quot;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;a href = 'http://www.filmnet.com/reviews/almost_famous_by_shaun_henisey/'&gt;Click here&lt;/a&gt; to read Shaun Henisey's review for Almost Famous - right here at FilmNet.. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;7. Adaptation.&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Adaptation&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/Adaptation.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Adaptation boasts the best screenplay of the decade, one of the greatest of all time. It tells the story of screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (a real person), Susan Orlean (a real person), John LaRoche (a real person) and Donald Kaufman (not a real person). I can only imagine the look on the studio execs faces when they read this screenplay. This is my personal favorite film on the list. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Kaufman was asked to adapt the book &quot;The Orchid Thief&quot; by Orlean, a writer for the New Yorker. The book is comprised of &quot;that sprawling, New Yorker Shit&quot; and Kaufman developed writers block in the adaptation. He ended up writing himself into the screenplay, creating a fictional brother for himself, and fabricating an entire third act of nothing but fiction. The movie is the story of the adaptation, which is about our ability to adapt. I don't know if you can get much more Meta than this. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> What a work of stunning originality! Charlie Kaufman is the single most important screenwriter of the decade. His work has the complexity of great literature. He is clearly interested in the inter-workings of the human mind and the dynamic of human relationships; he is a true unique voice, and Adaptation is his best work. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The credit to the film does not only go to Kaufman, the film was also directed by Spike Jonze. Jonze is a prodigy himself, only directing 3 films in the last 10 years- Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and Where the wild Things Are. You need to only look at where these films are on my list to know what I think about them. He is a bold, gifted filmmaker, one with as unique of a voice as Kaufman's. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The acting is also amazing. Meryl Streep, a National Treasure in her own right, gives one of her best performances here. She conveys the inner sadness of Orlean in her eyes and her actions. There is moment late in the film where Orlean is high and holding a phone up to her ear, trying to mimic a dial-tone, that is nothing short of spot on perfect. Chris Cooper won an Academy Award for his portrayal of John LaRoche, a backwoods hillbilly with moments of almost Zen like knowledge. His range in this film is astounding, going from the outright comical to the emotionally devastating. One only needs to watch the scene where he tells about losing his home and his wife, or the beautiful ride in the van- where he tells Orlean about the difficulty of adaptation. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> There are many people that dislike (even loathe) Nicholas Cage. I don't. He has certainly made some horrible career choices, but when he is on (and not doing a film for a paycheck) there are few actors that are better. Look at the way he plays both Charlie and Donald Kaufman. They are the same person, sometimes even wearing the same clothes- yet you can always tell them apart. They are two entirely different performances at all times on the screen. Cage could have won a second Oscar here- he is the glue that holds the film together. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I could go on for hours about what I love about this movie. There are moments of sheer brilliance. The twists are outrageous, and the movie takes us places we would never imagine. It is a crazy, crazy, film- and what a marvelous thing that is.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;6. Wall-E (and all those other Pixar movies...)&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Wall-E&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/WallE.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I had to combine all six Pixar films released this decade under this one heading, out of fairness. Each one of them could individually be on this list; this is just not fair to the other films. No other movie studio has had this history of complete and total commercial success along with profound artistic quality. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Just look at the names: Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-E, and Up. Every single one of these pictures is a modern masterpiece. These are not just children's films- they are films that embody the spirit and warmth of the most important human values. From The Incredibles depiction of the family unit, to Ratatouille’s analysis of cynical criticism, to Up's proclamation that life’s great adventure is the one right in front of your face; these movies are all modern classics. Walt Disney would jump in delight if he were able to see these pictures. We are extremely fortunate to live in this time. The 1940's and 1950's had only one Walt Disney- we have three: John Lassetter (Toy Story, CEO of Pixar), Andrew Stanton (Wall-E, Finding Nemo) and Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille). These three individuals are on the cutting edge of American film- creating an entirely new genre of film- the Pixar genre. This is not traditional animation, but event viewing. When a new Pixar film comes out everyone wants to see it: adults, children, and the elderly alike. The depth and scope of quality here is unparalleled. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The best of the lot is Wall-E. This is, quite simply put, a magical motion picture. For starters, the animation is the best I have ever seen. There are parts of this movie, specifically the parts on the planet Earth that are incredible and photorealistic. Other sequences involving Wall-E and E.V.E dancing in space are majestic and beautiful. I remember seeing Wall-E at a matinee on opening weekend. The theater was packed; people were even sitting in the aisles. There were dozens of children in the audience, many of them very small toddlers. When this sequence came on there was not a cry or sound in the house. Everyone was engaged. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The more I think about, the more I realize how special of a picture Wall-E really is. It shouldn't work. It is about a robot that cannot even speak. The entire first 40 minutes of the movie is the equivalent of a silent picture. When humans are introduced, they are fat, lazy and pretty unlikable. This is a pretty harsh critique of the American lifestyle, yet people are not worried, or offended, when they see Wall-E. They see it as the wonderful story that it is, and leave with the message. In the end, Wall-E is the same thing most great science fiction is, a cautionary tale against pollution, excess, laziness and consumerism. Wall-E risks his life for the plant of life inside of him- we can learn so much from this little robot. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;5. Where the Wild Things Are&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;Where the Wild Things Are&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/WheretheWildThingsAre.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Never in my life have I related to a movie more than when viewing Where the Wild Things Are for the first time. In his film, Spike Jonze has captured the essence of what it means to be a child. Growing up as an only child in a single parent household had a profound effect on me, and seeing this movie made me relate to the feelings I had in my youth, along with the feelings of countless others. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Based on Maurice Sendak's classic book, Where the Wild Things Are gets to the heart of not only the stories content, but its subtext. This is a work not to be taken literally. The symbolism and meaning of the picture can only be felt though the eyes of a child, or at least those that can remember what those eyes feel like. Max (Max Records) is probably the most realistic child I have ever seen on the screen. He is not all about sitting there and looking cute while making comments that no child would make. He is a real kid- rebellious, wild, out of control, desperately seeking attention, more than anything wanting to be loved. His sister has outgrown him, and his mother (Catherine Keener) is too busy either working or snuggling up to her new boyfriend. In a fit or rage Max decides he does not need his mother anymore- and he goes to the place where the wild things are. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The Wild Things are technically amazing. Created by Jim Henson's creature shop, they are large costumes with adult actors in them. The only CGI is used on the Wild Thing's faces. This is the kind of movie that could have easily been done in an animated format, or with fully CGI characters. Jonze is wise in rejecting these concepts. He makes the Wild Things have a certain depth and realism. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The voice acting work is superb. James Gandolfini is the best as Carol, the voice of the head Wild Thing; or the voice of Max's raw emotion, if you'd like. Lauren Ambrose, Catherine O' Hara, Forrest Whitaker, Paul Dano and Chris Cooper also do exceptional jobs. Each Wild Thing is an individual aspect of Max's Id. They all represent his emotions, and being a child, those emotions have a tendency to contradict each other. The soundtrack from Karen O (of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s) is sublime and beautiful. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I have heard from parents that Where the Wild Things Are is too adult for children. Some have even called the movie depressing. I took my eight year old daughter to see the movie, and she understood every bit of it. She said it was sad- but that it was also very good. I fear that we live in a world where we may be trying to hide too much from our children. Where the Wild Things Are is a spiritual and emotional experience. It is cathartic- and you know what? Kids can handle that. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> This is a film that belongs on the shelf right next to movies like The 400 Blows, Stand by Me, and E.T. If there is one thing I am certain of it is that Where the Wild Things Are will be considered a classic for years to come. It will cement itself in history as a true work of art.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;4. The Dark Knight&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;The Dark Knight&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/TheDarkKnight.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> A detective chases a psychopathic serial killer through the streets of Chicago. The serial killer will stop at nothing to cause as much chaos and damage as possible. The killer does not fear death. The detective bends many laws to apprehend the killer and, in doing so, looks into the heart of darkness itself. This could be the subplot of any great thriller, either in the medium of film and literature- the story of The Dark Knight, one of the finest films ever made, and certainly the greatest movie ever made based on a comic book. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I use the phrase comic book lightly. The Dark Knight, at its very essence, is a police drama. Many have compared it to Michael Mann's Heat, and they are right on target. The serial killer just happens to be the Joker and the detective Batman. Batman is, of course, not a super-hero (he has no powers) so it is easy to relate to his struggle with evil in the world. He is the most complex of heroes; the character is worthy of high literature. The joker is the ideal villian, archetypical to a fault- an agent of chaos. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> In his film, Christopher Nolan has created a crime thriller with spectacular set pieces and blockbuster production values with the realism of a character drama between (for the most part) two people- the protagonist, Batman (Christian Bale), and the antagonist, Joker (Heath Ledger). It is the most simple of formulas, and it works brilliantly. The special effects are there- but they are all practical. The story is not necessarily epic, but intimate. This is the power of substance over style. You don't have to believe me. Just ask any of the people that made this picture the second largest grossing film of all time. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The film is ranked so high on this list for one reason: Heath Ledger. As the Joker, Ledger gives the single greatest performance of the decade. His character is immediately recognizable to nearly everyone only a year after the film's release. His performance elevates every single scene, and when he is not on the screen we feel his presence. Ledger earned the first posthumous Oscar for his role, and I have little doubt in my mind that this could have been a unanimous decision. The Dark Knight was robbed of several other awards this year as well, including best picture. I guarantee you that if this picture was simply about cops and criminals- sans make up and costumes, The Dark Knight would have won best picture. Instead, it will have to simply reside on hundreds of lists such as this- near the very top.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;3. No Country for Old Men&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;No Country for Old Men&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/NoCountryforOldMen.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> With No Country for Old Men, the Coen Brothers created a perfect film. Every performance hits its mark. The Texas setting and time frame gives the film a sense of timelessness, and the characters are detailed with fine detail. The three leads, James Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones and Javier Bardem embody their characters so well that we completely forget that they are all relatively recognizable actors. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> There has never been a better examination of violence on the silver screen than in No Country for Old Men. It is truly to the credit of the author of the novel, Cormac McCarthy (possibly the greatest living literary mind today) and the Coen Brothers that this labyrinth work fell together so evenly on the screen. In the story of Anton Chigurh and his mass killing spree to recover some drug money, McCarthy and the Coen’s have crafted a tale that can represent all violence in the world, both currently and in history. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Many have claimed to not understand the meaning of the film. &quot;The hero died!&quot; A friend told me, while discussing the film. &quot;The lunatic just killed everyone off&quot; she said. I replied with a simple, &quot;Yes.&quot; The message of the film, though cryptic to some, resonates with me the most. There are no clean getaways; violence begets violence-it has always been this way. Things begin to look better- and then we wake up.<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;2. City of God&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;City of God&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/CityofGod.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The Cidade de Deus (City of God) is a section in the heart of the slums of Rio De Janeiro, and the film City of God presents the most harrowing depiction of life in a third world country I have ever seen. This may be one of the most dangerous places alive. Rival gangs wage war with each other- killing innocents, women and children alike. The majority of the time it is the children doing the shooting. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> City of God, one of the most energetic motion pictures I have ever seen, was expertly directed by the Brazilian director Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardner, Blindness) who is channeling the raw energy of the best Martin Scorsese films here. It has been said that City of God is basically Goodfellas as a foreign film- this analysis is both spot on and horribly off base. This film certainly packs the raw filmmaking energy and skill of Goodfellas, but the emotional payoff here is much more unnerving. There is no resolution, only continued violence and bloodshed. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I have never seen a character so deliberately amoral as Lil Ze (Douglas Siva as a child, Leandro Firmino as an adult). He thrives on bloodlust, carnage and power. At the beginning of the film the hero, Rocket (Alexandre Rodrigues) is a young boy that makes the wise choice of steering clear from Lil Ze (then known as Lil Dice). This is a wise decision. Ze is a psychopath from a very early age. When Ze and some friends rob a hotel, he goes back and kills every single person staying there. He is roughly eight or nine years old and has already killed dozens of people. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The story is not just about bloodshed, but about doing the right thing. In the City of God this can be tricky. Rocket is a photographer for the local newspaper, a job he earned based on a mixture of luck and skill. Should he print pictures showing the face of Lil Ze? What about the corrupt police officials that he catches on film extorting and buying drugs? It is a decision he makes daily living in this world. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I would be remiss if I did not mention The Runts. The Runts are the small children that inhabit the gang world of City of God- the majority of them are no more than 6. We see them killed, ran over, and kill others. They beat characters to death. In the City of God there is only one way to succeed- murder. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> This is an astonishing film. The subject matter, while extremely dark, is carried with jubilance by Merielles. There are moments of almost Dickensien in his quest to live and survive as a child in the darkest place on earth. His hopes and dreams, to be a successful photographer and get the girl, can be applied universally. We care about the character and want him to escape his world. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> This film is yet another example of how some of the best filmmaking in the world is south of our border. City of God is a masterpiece. It is a movie that should be seen by everyone, in every culture. It is the kind of movie that makes you empathize with others, and thankful for what you have. In order to realize how great we have it, sometimes we need a wake up call. The movie’s ending tells a simple truth- the City of God is all violent places. The guns are never put down, they just change hands. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;b&gt;1. The Lord of the Rings&lt;/b&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;img alt=&quot;The Lord of the Rings&quot; src=&quot;http://i.filmnet.com/review_files/780/TheLordoftheRings.jpg&quot;/&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> The Lord of the Rings is the cinematic experience of the decade. For three years in a row the world was captivated by the timeless tale of Frodo and his trip to Mount Doom to destroy the one ring. Beginning with The Fellowship of the Ring in 2001, Peter Jackson's trilogy soon became (and remains) the gold standard for Hollywood Epics. The three films combined were nominated for a total 30 Academy Awards, winning 17. Every single installment of the trilogy (The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King) was nominated for Best Picture, with The Return of the King finally winning the prize in 2003; For the first time in history the Academy Awards had a clean sweep- a film that won every single award in which it was nominated. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> It would have been easy to be pretentious about this list. Certainly there are more obscure titles that I could have put in the Number 1 spot. This would have been a down and out lie. Massive popularity does not mean that this film is anything short of a masterpiece. The Lord of the Rings represents the pinnacle of the American Epic. David Lean (director of Lawrence of Arabia) would probably declare these pictures the greatest of all time. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Jackson accomplished the impossible by making possibly the most faithful adaptation of a major literary work ever. While there are some scenes missing (albeit, fewer in the exceptional Extended Editions) all of the world created by J.R.R Tolkien is there on the screen. The characters are all fully developed and all of the spectacular special effects are done in the interest of the story. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> Many images come across my mind when I think about The Lord of the Rings. I imagine a boy reaching up and grabbing a tiny ring as it falls to his fingers. I think about a wizard, yelling at a demon at the top of a bottomless pit. I envision great battles, beautiful scenery, dragons, demons, Gollum’s, volcanoes and walking trees. I see elephantine creatures lumbering through a field, killing all in their path. I imagine giant spiders, all-seeing eyes, hobbits, dwarfs, princesses, elf’s, kings, and foul monsters. I hear the great score by Howard Shore and realize the majesty of the scenery. There is simply nothing like it. <br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> I know that there are some that have never seen these films. Many reject the movies simply on the basis that they are fantasy. Perhaps you think they are too long. My advice would be that a great movie is never too long, they are always just right. The series is not perfect, but it does not need to be. It is what it is, and that is the gold standard of filmmaking. Like Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T and The Wizard of Oz, The Lord of the Rings is an instant classic- instantly identifiable to even those that have never seen it. It is a film that over time will undoubtedly be engrained in American culture. This is the kind of experience that people want to celebrate annually. The sense of wonder had left the movies for many years, and The Lord of the Rings brought it back.'

__domel__body => '&lt;p&gt;Christmas draws nigh again and on its tail is a trail of Hollywood movie offerings released to lighten the pockets of holiday viewers. I missed the release of FOUR CHRISTMASES last year, but it has arrived on DVD this year on Santa’s sleigh. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;For some reason a lot of Christmas movies feature dysfunctional people in dysfunctional families, and somehow humor is derived from their misfortune, i.e. CHRISTMAS WITH THE CRANKS, DECK THE HALLS, SANTA CLAUS. FOUR CHRISTMASES is no different, it just has bigger name stars than in the other movies. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The premise of the story is that Brad (Vince Vaughn) and Kate (Reese Witherspoon) are a happily, unmarried couple with no plans to marry or have children. They both like to go away for the Christmas holidays and avoid family gatherings because of their own personal family issues and problems. They will usually make some excuse that they are performing some humanitarian work so as to avoid the holiday season with their relatives, and scoot off to some exotic sunny location to laze in the Sun. That is until their plane flight to Fiji is cancelled by bad weather and they are caught red handed on news lying about their holiday plans. Therefore, they have to make an effort to visit their disgruntled relatives.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;I can actually understand a situation like this, as some of us do have relatives we wished live on a different planet. However, this movie goes out of its way to make them as strange and outlandish as possible – in order to draw humor from the quirky situations that arise. Brad has pro-wrestling brothers who like to sit on and mangle him, his mother (Sissy Spacek) is married to his college best friend. Kate’s mother and sister are religious fanatics. The mother is sexually interested in the church pastor and her father has a live in girlfriend. Of course, the parents are all divorced – therefore, the title FOUR CHRISTMASES.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Maybe families as unusual as this do exist. After all most of us have skeletons in our family closet that we probably don’t want the world to know about. In this case, Brad and Kate realise that their perfect life is not so perfect when it comes to their families. And that they don’t really know each other as well as they had believed – and the skeletons come tumbling out of the stockings.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;I did laugh in some hilarious scenes like when the installation of a radar dish goes wrong and the TV set goes up in flames and when Reese is trying to chase after her pregnancy test kit in a jumping castle filled with kids. However, a lot of the humour is contrived and the situations created are forced. I sensed as if the actors (Reese and Vince) were trying very hard to be funny in many of the scenes, when the best comedies come naturally with little effort from the actors. This is a good try at Christmas humour but somehow it is lacking true mirth and good cheer.&lt;/p&gt;'

__domel__body => '&lt;p&gt;AWAY WE GO, by acclaimed director Sam Mendes, is his most different movie. All of his other pictures (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, JARHEAD, ROAD TO PERDITION and AMERICAN BEAUTY) are in-your-face, big films, full of very dramatic moments. They have their funny bits, but their underlying tone is always dark and foreboding. In a complete change of pace for Mendes, AWAY WE GO is a little movie, a sweet and quirky comedy that works -- but only if one doesn't overanalyze it and look for Mendes's traditional deep meanings.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;But, as a comedy, it isn't one of those big laugh-out-loud types. Instead, it's one full of witty lines that'll keep you smiling most of the time. The secret to the film's modest but satisfying success is the cast. With two likable leads, John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph as Burt Farlander and Verona De Tessant, and a terrific supporting cast, including a scene-stealing one by Maggie Gyllenhaal as LN, the movie is a real crowd-pleaser.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Structured mainly as a road trip, the film follows a very pregnant Verona, who is only six months along but appears ready to give birth at any moment, and her live-in boyfriend Burt. The plot, which proves to be fairly unimportant, has them touring a few cities in the U.S. and Canada, visiting friends and relatives as they look for a place to settle down.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The script's best part comes when it has Verona and Burt, a mid-thirties couple, stopping to see LN at a college in Montreal. As they walk into LN's office, they find her nursing her two boys simultaneously. Since the oldest boy, around five or six, appears to be old enough that he might be inclined to invite his friends over for lunch, Verona and Burt are shocked by what they observe. Regaining their composure, they accept LN's invitation for dinner.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;LN, a pseudo-free spirit who acts like a refugee from a commune, has a whole list of bizarre child-raising dos and don'ts, with her breast-feeding of her kids and her friend's kids being at the top of the &amp;quot;do&amp;quot; list and the use of strollers being at the top of the &amp;quot;don't&amp;quot; list. Having done child birthing twice, she brags that her pain means that &amp;quot;when I watch CNN, I can understand war.&amp;quot; Hands-down, the movie's funniest scene surrounds a stroller that Verona and Burt give LN.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Little things in the script provide delectable pleasures. Burt makes his living by selling &amp;quot;insurance futures&amp;quot; to insurance companies. He doesn't have an office and does his work strictly over his cell phone while using a fictitious name. He explains that insurance companies need insurance too. And the dialog is particularly fine, with one my favorite lines being a warning that &amp;quot;a drought is coming, like a Biblical flood in reverse.&amp;quot;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;If you go looking for Mendes's next big movie, boy, oh boy, will you be disappointed, as many critics have been. And if you go expecting a comedy filled with huge laughs or a drama chock full of big message moments, you'll similarly leave unsatisfied. But, if you go into the theater wanting to be entertained, you will get what you came looking for. You'll enjoy going along with Verona and Burt on their journey, and you'll leave with a smile on your face and a feeling that you're glad you got to know them.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;AWAY WE GO runs 1:38. It is rated R for &amp;quot;language and some sexual content&amp;quot; and would be acceptable for teenagers.&lt;/p&gt;'

Starring two likeable comic actors, Seth Rogen and Anna Faris (who I thought was hilarious in THE HOUSE BUNNY), I was particularly disappointed with the final outcome. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Like PAUL BLART: MALL COP – the other popular mall security movie of 2009 – the main plot lines are almost identical to each other. Both are about disillusioned security officers who live at home with their mother, are in love with the wrong girl while the right one floats under their noses, and are vindicated by the end of the movie because of their personal convictions. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Yawn.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Seth Rogen is mall cop Ronnie Barnhardt in this movie. His character would best be described as delusional bordering on psychotic, with a streak of borderline personality disorder. He has an obsession to join the real police force and to find the streaker that is terrorising the patrons of the local shopping mall. Do I like Seth Rogen as a comic actor? YES. Do I like his character in this movie – NO! My final thought at the end of the movie was – “God I hope he doesn’t come work at my local mall.”&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;On the other hand, I took more kindly to Kevin James’ portrayal of Paul Blart. Although Paul was deluded, he at least had a heart and overcame his mistakes to become a better person at the end of the movie. While Ronnie Bernhardt just ended up beating up police officers and streakers alike to prove he was right and everybody else was wrong.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;So was this movie funny? It had me smiling on a few occasions, e.g. crazy streaker running through mall. But did I truly laugh out loud with pure enjoyment? I would have to say no, I didn’t. Maybe it was because I found the characters very annoying and too angry for my liking. Seth’s character Ronnie Bernhardt just bitches about life in this movie and Anna’s character Brandi is just bitchy.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;If I had to absolutely choose between PAUL BLART and OBSERVE AND REPORT to watch, I would probably go with Paul. The cute, cuddly cop, with the softy heart on top of his scooter mobile is far nicer and funnier to watch than the nasty Ronnier Bernhardt. Sorry Seth, I just didn’t like your character in this movie.&lt;/p&gt;'

__domel__body => '&lt;p&gt;I’m not sure where to begin with this movie. Frankly, I’m almost at a loss for words after viewing LAND OF THE LOST (2009) and being bombarded with images of one of the silliest attempts at movie humour to hit our screen. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;I should have seen this coming, after all it stars Will Ferrel, but even this is considered pretty low in the long list of silly movies to emerge from his neck of the woods. I should have known better than to have clicked that box asking Qickflix, my online DVD store, to mail it to me. I should have stopped watching when I saw the ape man dressed in the guerrilla suit start hugging Will’s legs and fondling his crotch.... but I kept watching, sigh.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;When I heard that a movie called LAND OF THE LOST was being made, I had hoped that it would carry the same style of adventure that the 1974 television series portrayed. It had a kind of Jurassic Park/Indiana Jones feel about it. When I heard that it was being carried by Will Ferrel, my heart dropped and missed a beat. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;In short, Will Ferrel is Dr. Rick Marshall, a scientist who believes that Tachyon beams can in fact allow a person to travel through time, space and into alternate realities. His theories are rejected by his scientific peers and Matt Lauer, until on an expedition with his two companions ends up over a waterfall and into the prehistoric alt universe. How this occurs, is never fully explained. At this point, the movie slides down into a pool of sillier and sillier happenings. His travelling group befriend an Ape Man called Chaka (Jorma Taccone) who is literally dressed in a monkey suit and mask that I could have rented from a costume party shop. They are then attacked by green aliens and a sinister head alien who wants to steal Dr. Marshall’s tachyon technology to do great evil. At this point in time, I am screaming, “How do movies like this even get the funding to be made?” Oh, it stars Will Ferrel. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;A big part of the problem with this movie is how amateurish it looks. It is as if the Production team really didn’t go to a lot of trouble in making the settings of the alternate universe believable. A good example is Chaka, but a better example are the aliens – they are dressed in green suits that my grandmother could have made on her sewing machine, big bulgy shiny eyes and some sharp teeth... and that is meant to like scare us silly with laughter? The T-Rex is of course computer generated, but it would probably be more on par with a BBC production of a dinosaur documentary than what would expect from a multi-million dollar Hollywood production.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The movie moment that I most remember – and probably would most like to forget – is when Will Ferrel discovers a way to return to our universe. However, standing in his way is the T-Rex who has been trying to eat him the whole movie. With his eyes opened wide he pole vaults straight into the T-Rex mouth and belly, this is followed by his girlfriend (Anna Friel) telling the T-Rex off for eating the only person who cared about him (this is in reference to the fact that Dr. Marshall believe that T-Rex’s were actually very intelligent beings). In a moment of rage she rips off her belt and starts whipping the green aliens who retaliate and capture her. The other travelling companion (Will Stanton) comes to her aid by grabbing Chaka the ape man as a weapon in a vain effort to ram the green aliens. They are easily subdued and about to be eaten when Will Ferrel emerges triumphant on top of the T-Rex who swallowed him earlier, in order to save the day!!!!! &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;I guess I expected a more serious, adventure style plot with doses of good humour with this movie, I just wasn’t expecting the ridiculous.&lt;/p&gt;'

__domel__body => '&lt;p&gt;If you are expecting a road movie, mixed in with wine and melodrama, BOTTLE SHOCK is not another SIDEWAYS. Wine and the California Nappa Valley are probably the only things these movies have in common. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;BOTTLE SHOCK is set in 1976 during a period of time when the emerging wine industry of California was trying to find an identity for itself, and French wine making dominated the world. A disillusioned British wine merchant living in Paris, Stephen Spurrier (Alan Rickman), decides that there must be more on offer than just French-made wine to go with the evening meal. He decides to travel to California to find the best they have to offer and bring it back to France for a blind wine tasting competition – USA vs France. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;If you are wondering at this point if this is a true story, indeed it is. I have a liking for movies that have a historical context and this movie is set during a small, yet significant part of viticulture history, when the wine making skill was no longer an exclusive French Art, but one adopted and mastered by another country. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;When one thinks of wineries, one may imagine something glamorous like FALCON CREST, but in reality the wine makers of Nappa Valley in 1976 were more likened to struggling farmers on the brink of financial ruin. The story mostly focuses on the winery owned by Jim Barrett (Bill Pullman, who is looking more rugged with age), his struggle to make the perfect Chardonnay and his difficult relationship with his aimless, drop out son Bo Barrett (Chris Pine). Thrown into this clash of personalities between father and son is a love triangle, a Mexican immigrant Gustavo Brambilia (Freddy Rodriguez) who is trying to make it on his own by creating a red Cabernet Sauvignon and an awful lot of grapes. These sideline storylines are really just to fill in the gaps found in the main plot and do not really add or detract from it. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Alan Rickman gives another wonderful droll performance, in which his blunt expressions and comments drive home how aloof and emotionless the British can be. There is a humorous scene in which he picks up some Kentucky Fried Chicken, smells it before taking a small bite and then isn’t sure what next to do with the chicken piece. I guess in 1976, Kentucky Fried hadn’t quite hit the streets of Paris or London yet and wasn’t as popular as it is today. Bill Pullman puts in a solid performance as the struggling wine maker who finally succeeds in fulfilling his dream. Newcomer Chris Pine, now better recognized as the new Captain James Kirk in STAR TREK (2009), looks mostly scruffy and out of sorts in this movie. &lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;As for the outcome of the competition between the French and US wines, I will let you find out for yourself if you decide to see this movie. However, I will say that the Chateau Montelena Chardonnay and the Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon are on display at the Smithsonian in Washington DC, along with Julia Child’s kitchen from JULIE AND JULIA (2009). I have promised myself to seek these items out on my next visit to DC.&lt;/p&gt;'

This reimagining of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is mainly set in a beautifully snowy season that looks for all intents and purposes like Christmas, but the film is being released in May, which feels weirdly incongruous.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The Christmas connection continues, however, since the film's two writers, Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, were last responsible for FOUR CHRISTMASES, a mildly entertaining film that was savaged by most critics. As I did with FOUR CHRISTMASES, I found GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST kind of cute. Working in its favor, this film, directed by FREAKY FRIDAY's Mark Waters, never takes itself too seriously and is filled with deliciously cheesy lines. The best of these comes when Connor discusses the lost art of &amp;quot;spooning&amp;quot; with Vonda Volkom (Anne Archer), the mother of the bride at his brother's wedding. &amp;quot;Spooning is nice,&amp;quot; he tells her with a wicked little twinkle in his eye, &amp;quot;but not as nice as forking.&amp;quot;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;We originally meet Connor, a popular magazine cover photographer, in one of the most unpromising openings of the year. Be ready to groan loudly through most of the film's first scenes, as Connor plays an obnoxious, completely unbelievable and utterly clueless playboy. In the movie's worst moment, we are asked to buy that he would breakup with three girls in a simultaneous videoconference. &amp;quot;I had an amazing time with each of you,&amp;quot; he tells them with a big smile. &amp;quot;I wish you all the best.&amp;quot; What a great guy.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Luckily, the film gets much better when Connor reluctantly heads to the wedding of his kid brother Paul (Breckin Meyer). After trying to talk his brother out of acquiring the ball and chain that Connor views marriage as being, Connor starts verbally sparring with Jenny Perotti (Jennifer Garner), his first flame from way back when they were only seven.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Connor gets his comeuppance during his visits from three ghosts -- representing his girlfriends past, present and future. As they show him his life, he is whisked around in the bed of his deceased Uncle Wayne (Michael Douglas). This uncle, who raised Connor after his parents died, taught him everything he knew about girls and how to treat them. Coming back as another ghost in Connor's life, Uncle Wayne explains his presence by noting, &amp;quot;Players never die. They just try their luck at a different table.&amp;quot;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Described by &amp;quot;friends&amp;quot; as being &amp;quot;like the Tin Man -- he was born without a heart,&amp;quot; Connor eventually realizes that his life of fast, meaningless relationships has hurt almost everyone he has dated, which appears to include close to half of the planet. Continuing to take a light approach to the material, the movie's best moments, surprisingly turn out to be in the obligatory last act, as it turns bittersweet and downright sappy, yet strangely affecting and sweet as well.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST runs 1:40. It is rated PG-13 for &amp;quot;sexual content throughout, some language and a drug reference&amp;quot; and would be acceptable for kids around 8 and up.&lt;/p&gt;'

Samantha (Courtney Ford) and Mason (Steve Sandvoss) are both successful in their work and on the outside appear to be in a loving relationship; and they are. They laugh, go out, live together, and have a strong bond unlike many couples. A few of their friends and co-workers know that they have a very open relationship, not only seeing other people for one night or many, but even talking of their experiences and asking the other for advice.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;At Sam's sister's (Allison) wedding she runs into James, an ex-boyfriend, while Mason advances towards the groom's sister, Olivia. James and the groom (Luke) are friends and he knows of his and Samantha's arrangement; although knows nothing of him and Olivia. Luke must also keep it a secret from his wife, Sam's sister, as she does not know and they don't want to tell her. Quite a tangled web!&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;As Sam and Mason spend more time with their flings their relationship is appearing strained as they don't share their emotions as much. Jealousy creeps in and they begin spending even more time with their new lovers to get their minds off their relationship because they cannot stand the thought of the other with another. New discoveries could drastically alter their direction in life whether they want it to or not. Has their open relationship finally reached the breaking point? Can their friends and family be kept in the dark? Perhaps what many young people may see as an amazing and fun way to live is not all it is cracked up to be.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;With a handheld camera style and a great soundtrack you become immersed in their lives. The acting is top notch allowing you to feel the emotions of the characters. The content of this movie could make it very racy but it is not; it is tastefully sensual. The pace keeps you engaged at all times; a great movie that will entertain.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;9 out of 10 - Rated R - The DVD is available at Amazon.&lt;/p&gt;'
