    Been watching a lot of movies recently. Today I saw Groundhog Day (1993) and The African Queen (1951). Both classics, though I was left a bit unsatisfied with each film's conclusion (kinda too happy for real life).

    Small budget, but very well made indie flick. I really liked this movie. Just a little different from everything else out there. You can find it for download.

    Samurai Rebellion (1967) - badass. Kobayashi is overshadowed by Kurosawa but he's just as great as him.

    A good friend of mine, who has impeccable taste in films, recently introduced me to two films: the first was Four Lions, a wonderful British comedy about a group of extremist English muslims who attempt but fail to become 'successful' suicide-bombers (trust me, it is not as tasteless as it sounds! It's actually hilarious). The second was the Spanish film, The Orphanage, a kind of psychological horror, which my friend greatly enjoyed because of its dual rational/supernatural explanations - though, being the literary nerd I am, I had to point out that such a technique was thought of long before with Henry James's Turn of the Screw

    Believe it or not - "Crossroads" with Britney Spears. Britney clearly is not an actress, but at least she doesn't embarrass herself either. For the first 45 minutes or so "Crossroads" looks like an at least mildly entertaining teengirl road movie. The second half however has several unbelievable plot twists and a forced happy end that's so predictable that it's hardly worth the trouble watching the last ten minutes. I really wish I could be more positive because Spears is such an easy target that I would have been willing to give her the benefit of the doubt if there was such a thing. But if I insist on giving her a compliment I'm gonna have to limit myself to saying that Britney Spears is indeed a very beautiful girl. 2,5/10

    Watched Howard Hawks' "Monkey Business" last night. What a hilarious parody of the desire to be younger than you are. Also, no one writes intelligent and funny dialogue like Hawks (except Mankiewicz).
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.

    More Hawks with "I Was A Male War Bride", which I had not seen before, and "Bringing Up Baby", which is always a thrill of cosmic proportions. Hawks sure likes to embarass and emasculate Cary Grant to the point of absurdity... and Grant can take it all

    Atlas Shrugged Part I

    If you're amenable to some of the elements of the
    Rand message, I expect that you'll appreciate this film.
    If not, it'll probably leave you sputtering in rage.

    Watched Borat again! )) I love this movie. It's a new original genre in comedy.

    Does anyone know movies that are somewhat similar? I'm really into this type of humor.
