    I had been dying to see 'Repo! The Genetic Opera' since I first saw trailers. Finally got around to watching it last night. Got about halfway through and couldn't deal with it anymore.
    It has some REALLY good ideas and concepts and a really unique way of storytelling mapped out...but the overall execution just seemed really sloppy. I didn't find it to be very grasping at all

    I would just like to say, that as of today i have officially watched 365 new movies (as in, movie's i have never seen before) in 2009!

    If you are thinking that i have no life, you are correct.

    The final movies to finish off this year long struggle was the Matrix Trilogy. It was a great way to complete this pointless goal.

    ^Sounds like an awesome goal! There are literally hundreds of movies I should see that I never have, so I should do something like that too.

    I have been seeing a lot of new ones lately (so many I want to see just came out!)


    The Blind Side - thought it was going to be much cheesier than it was. Sandra Bullock has always been one of my faves and it was great to see her do something more dramatic, I thought she really carried it.

    It's Complicated - Great cast but the writing wasn't really there for some of it...I figured with Meryl Streep in the leading role it would be really dynamic and groundbreaking, but it seemed like just another woman who is having some sort of funny struggle that could have easily been played by Diane Keaton or Diane Lane (both of whom I also love.) It was interesting to see Meryl in a 'normal' role though, as she's been a crazy nun, a world famous chef, and a singing Greek ho in her past few movies. Not my fave.

    Nine - I had such high hopes! I've been watching the trailer daily since May. The cast is just so INCREDIBLE. Strangely though, the music just wasn't very good! And DDL seemed like the wrong choice for the part. There were some extraordinary numbers and images and moments but the movie as a whole just didn't do much for me. Then again, my expectations were quite high.

    Avatar - Really truly fantastic. I posted in the thread that I thought lots of the dialogue seemed rush so they could get to more of the 'action,' but I loved it.

    A Single Man - Just got home from this one and it was devastating. I hated the end but Colin Firth was fantastic and so was Nicolas Hoult (yum!!!) It was strange, normally I cry during movies but this one I started sobbing when I stepped out of the theatre. It was really powerful, so glad I got to see it.


    I also want to see Invictus, Precious, and Sherlock Holmes.

    Make me your Freshie Idol!

    I've done my share of movie watching over the past few days/weeks! Recently I've seen;

    'Watchmen' &#183; Don't know WHY it took me so long to get around to watching, it was absolutely FANTASTIC. It was really what cinema is all about in some ways <3

    'Avatar' &#183; Another amazing movie! Hardly as ground-breaking (visually) as I had expected but the storyline carries on fluidly and never seems to drag (which is tough for a movie of its length!) and just provide a really fun viewing experience.

    'The Neverending Story' &#183; Hadn't seen this since I was a kid and I used to looove it! Its obviously got the 80's campy feel to it but I did really love the final message of it and the characters were just too cute! Falkor ftw!!

    'Where The Wild Things Are' &#183; Saw this again, not quite as enjoyable as the first time- but nice overall.

    'An Education' &#183; I didn't know WHAT to make of the movie! At first I was really enjoying it and it was nothing like I expected it to be and it was going in a nice direction and then towards the end they just turn everything upside down and wrap it up. It was kind of a shame because I found Carey Mulligan to be SO pretty and SOOO charming <33

    I watched 'Dorian Gray' last night with a friend...I'd been wanting to see it because I've found the concept to be fascinating but never read the book..and just...wow, its literally one of THE worst films I've seen. From the clich&#233; (and extremely cheap sounding) score to the casting to the character development...heck the concept of the portrait is never even properly explored! There was practically NOTHING enjoyable about it

    What a greaaaat way to start of the year in film hahah!

    SUCH a good sci-fi film, although the twist towards the end was a little much. Still really enjoyable, though! Visually it's amazing. And I mean visually because of the special effects and also because Chris Evans is in it.

    I saw Avatar, Julie and Julia, Paranormal Activity, and All About Steve with my bf.

    Avatar and Julie & Julia were great, we loved it, the other two were just too stupid and boring.
