3. Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009)
I don't know, this felt almost even more interesting than the first one. The second one wasn't great but strangely I kinda like this and the first one. I never would've thought to like them.

6. Precious (2009)
Talk about depressing. Here's a story that has probably the saddest and most tragic main character ever. I mean first precious gets pregnant because her father raped her, TWICE, so there's two babies. Okay so like that's not awful enough, Precious' mom blames her daughter for getting raped. And that it was her fault that when she was 3 years old she let him touch her and abuse her, and that she WANTED to take him away from her mom. So that's pretty awful right? It's not over yet. So then after the second baby (oh and the first baby has down syndrome) Precious finds out she's HIV positive. So she has this incurable disease and on top of that she has to learn to read at 17 years old. Also she's dangerously overweight and has no home. So that's pretty much the most depressing story I've ever heard. I was honestly terrified when the mom threw that baby on the floor and dropped that TV on Precious... Oh and I would just like to say, what's all the fuss about Mariah Carey? I mean she didn't even appear so much in the film and everybody's like omg she's so deep with her character, she's so talented as an actress. I was really disappointed and amazed that people though she was great. She just sat there looking like normal people usually look like, but it was a great performance because it's a big deal when Mariah Carey looks like everyone else does.

7. Happiness (1998)
An odd film definitely, pretty disturbing. This movie has things that many people don't like to deal with so it has this feeling that it says what many are thinking, but are just too afraid, or something, to say it. I can see that this probably gets a reaction from anybody that watches it, it's so confronting and controversial.

In this picture you see the reason I even bothered to watch this.

9. Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)
I've always been fascinated by serial killers so this movie has been on my queue for a while. And it was really good. What it lacked was a bit more depth to the characters and the story, but otherwise this was worth the watch. I really like how Michael Rooker portrayed Henry, and how he managed to give him that little hint of humanity. I think the whole movie was pretty much a romanticized version of the real Henry Lee Lucas' life (like movies usually are). Even though the kill scenes were rather shocking.

11. The Prestige (2006)
Well... that was... interesting. Very confusing at times. But... Good. I think. Just a little bit too much magic for my taste. I don't even know what to say. The whole movie is just a one big mind game to get you confused. I also get that this movie could have had that something that made me think so highly of Fight Club, but somehow I'm just not as impressed as I thought I might be.

13. High Society (1956)
Oh how I love Grace Kelly. She's just so great. And even though I really love Katharine Hepburn too, I'd say Grace Kelly is quite the match for her. I really liked the first film with Hepburn, Stewart and Grant and I found this version to be just as good as the older one. Tracy's characters is funny and the movie just works in every way.

I think Wesley Snipes is pretty much always a pleasure to watch but this movie was just, meh.

RE-WATCH. I'm sorry but I really kinda like this movie. And I like Vin Diesel. The movie's just so entertaining.

16. Whip It (2009)
I liked it. This movie had a pretty basic but beautiful story, even something I could myself relate to. Ellen Page is great, I get it now why people love her so much. All in all, Whip it was great, entertaining and it had so many great actors. AND it didn't fall into some old cliches. Oh and it was fun to see that the cast was mainly just women. I loved many of the actresses, and I always love to see some strong female performances.

18. The King of Comedy (1982)
Whoa, this month has really started well with my movie choices. The King Of Comedy is one of those films I've wanted to see for a while. It's one Of Ed Norton's favorite movies, it has DeNiro in it, it's directed by Scorsese... couldn't sound any better. So I finally watched and man this film is great. I think this film is a hidden gem, since I think it hasn't got enough attention. The story is in all simplicity kind of unique and even tragic, not to mention how DeNiro once again delivers such a great performance. Rupert is now one of my favorite movie characters.

20. The Hurt Locker (2008)
Pretty beautiful piece of work. Visually stunning and there's a story in the back that's interesting enough. I liked it, but I didn't like it as much as I would've thought, based on the hype that was around it at the time of the release. This Jeremy Renner guy seems to be quite hot right now, I've never seen any of his movies but people (well... especially girls) seem to like him. He's good I guess. Reminds me of Jason Statham for some reason.

I failed last month on my goal to watch a shitload of movies, so maybe I'm just not going to make a goal. Seems like my life is pretty full of unnecessary and necessary stuff right now that I just don't get the time to watch movies. But I'll try to watch at least 15 movies a month :D

Jeremy Renner on ihan ok näyttelijä ainakin tämän elokuvan perustella. nythän mies on nostessa kiitos kostajat leffan.

I found Hurt Locker to beautiful but boring much like Beau Travail for which I viewed the visual poetry of the later film with a tad bit more respect.

Grace Kelly is my favorite! Glad you like King of Comedy so well! Just bought myself a copy last week, so may have to revisit that one soon!

Looks like you loved Dawn of the Dead. :) Glad you enjoyed The Prestige too, if not as much as some of us around here.

I swear this year I'll finally watch Henry.
