A King in New York, Chaplin's final feature with him in a starring role. Quite clever moments but overall not entirely great.

Saw Super 8 in the cinema in KL on the way back from Bali, a very well made modern day 70/80 kids adventure monster movie let down somewhat by a very shmalzy ending. ET meets Cloverfield (Considering the creative forces, you couldn't get a more apt description).

If i ever met JJ Abrahms, i would feel compelled to say something like "We get it, you like lens flare!"

Watched A Town Called Panic/ Panique au Village, which is a brilliantly funny Belgian stop-motion animation, in the same style as the Cravendale milk adverts (Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilk!). I love it as it just a bit crazy, with no real thread in the plot and the most random things happening.

Ooh, I remember they had a television series that was shown on kids' TV (it may still be).

Just watched Infernal Affairs, much much better than the remake The Departed.

Hopefully not that sanitized version that is being shown on AMC just now.

Haha, it is. But I've seen the less hygienic version before. :)

I began to watch it but the when the plumbing salesmen said "that WATER right out of your house" instead of shit, I moved onto the X Files on BBCA.

It doesn't bother me too much usually. It does grate on me in Blazing Saddles, I'll admit.

Yesterday I watched Me, Myself, and Irene, highly sanitized for whichever channel it was on. SpousalUnit and I had a rollicking good time making fun of the dubbing.

Don't ever watch Angelheart on broadcast TV, cut so much that it's unintelligible.

"Flip you, melon farmer"

Eddie Murphy, I think.

They had a bit of fun with the "censored" versions of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

Watched Arizona Dream, which was really very good. A tad "pretentious" if you could call it that, but it wasn't a bad thing. And the cast was great: Johnny Depp, Faye Dunaway, Jerry Lewis, Vincent Gallo and Lili Taylor (with a cameo by Michael J. Pollard).

I went to see Tree of Life yesterday - that is, we started seeing it. We actually walked out after half an hour because we couldn't face another almost two hours of it. I think that may be the first time I've ever walked out of a movie I've paid to go and see.

People who like that kind of art-house movie have praised Tree of Life, but frankly I thought it both boring and pretentious.

We moaned in a fairly jokey fashion to the cashier on our way out and they actually gave us vouchers to come back and see another movie on another day - result!
