  1. Thanks for writing about that one. Hadn't heard about it, but after reading your post I watched a trailer for it. I wasn't sure if I would like it but I had to find out. It's perhaps not the kind of movie I usually enjoy, but The White Ribbon was excellent. It had me hooked from the beginning. Not sure what I liked about the movie though. Well, maybe I do. The acting was beyond excellent. Can't understand why this movie hasn't been mentioned more. Should be nominated for "Best foreign language film" at the Oscars and/or the Golden Globes. And I can say that I'm glad I don't live in that village because I would be tied to the bed all the time :D
  2. I agree on Transformers 2. I saw it a couple of days ago for the 2nd time (my dad hadn't seen it so I thought I might as well see it again). I almost fell asleep. It might contain loads of special effects and bombs and stuff, but man is it boring. I would like to see "The men who stare at goats". I've heard that it isn't great, but maybe I'll enjoy it. Clooney alone makes it worth seeing. He's always great. I saw "Burn after reading" for like the fourth time not long ago and he is simply brilliant in that one (the entire movie is brilliant as well).
  3. Haven't seen 2012 and might not see it either. To me it looks just like another braindead end of days movie. Some interesting actors though that might be able to make the movie a bit better. Personally I've seen quite a lot of movies lately but the last movie I saw was "My Sisters Keeper". Actually I finished watching it about 10 minutes ago. Right now I'm still trying to wipe away all the tears the movie made me shed. "My Sisters Keeper" is based on a book and apparently the book, while fictional, is partly based on a real event. It's about a family that is hit with the tragic news that their oldest daughter Kate has leukemia. Since they can't find any donors to give they have another daughter by "in vitro fertilization". She is made to be a perfect match to her sister and from the moment she is born she becomes a donor to her sister. After a very long time she finally says she's had enough and sues her mother and demands full control of her own body. She knows that this will in the end lead to her sister dying. It was a good movie, even if it is a bit sentimental sometimes. The story jumps back and forth from time to time and that can be confusing, but not too much. The actors are great. I've never considered Cameron Diaz as a great actress, but in this one she's actually quite good. Jason Patric plays the father and does a good job. Doesn't show too many emotions, but his character is the strong and silent kind. You can feel that he is in pain and is also tired, but he doesn't show it. Evan Ellingson (who I thought was quite bad in "24") plays the son. I was surprised that he actually managed to be good in that part. The two stars of the movie is however the two daughters - Kate & Anna - played by Abigail Breslin (from "Little Miss Sunshine") and Sofia Vassilieva who once played the lead in a movie called "Eloise at the Plaza" in which she was dreadful (the movie sucks as well). In this she is brilliant. She plays Kate who has leukemia and she does an excellent job. Breslin is on par with Vassilieva. She really shows that she is a very talented young actress. Two other actors that should be mentioned is Alec Baldwin who plays the lawyer who takes on Annas case and the other one is Joan Cusack who in my oppinion is a very underrated actress. She plays the judge who will rule in the case between Anna and her mother. All in all the movie was good and very, very sad. Good actors and a very interesting story.
