"Look, Doc, I spent last Tuesday watching fibers on my carpet. And the whole time I was watching my carpet, I was worrying that I, I might vomit. And the whole time, I was thinking, "I'm a grown man. I should know what goes on my head." And the more I thought about it... the more I realized that I should just blow my brains out and end it all. But then I thought, well, if I thought more about blow... read more

A refreshing change for Ridley Scott!

"If you're gonna get wet, might as well go swimming."

For Matchstick Men, acclaimed director Ridley Scott turns his attention away from the visceral blockbusters he's recognised for in order to deliver a finely crafted drama and character study about con artistry and family life. An adaptation of the novel by Eric Garcia, this excellent motion picture successfully combines black com... read more

When I first saw the trailer for this movie I wasn't really interested and after watching it that feeling wasn't to far off.

Nicolas Cage plays Roy Waller, a depressed con artist with several mental disorders, agoraphobia, germaphobia, OCD, and a tic. At the start Roy has a panic attack and his parter suggests going to a shrink. He tries just to get drugs from his old shrink but can... read more

"A con movie about a con-man getting conned. Matchstick Men is a decent movie that I thought had the potential to be a really great movie. Mostly because the father-daughter chemistry between Nicolaus Cage's & Alison Lohman's characters worked so well & on an emotional level, seemed to flow so naturally, that for me, it became a case of an onscreen father/daughter relationship that worked too well. I had a hard time buying that what eventually would happened to Nick's character would've been some"

Good Films Stuck at 7 Point Something..... (26 movies items)

" Nicolas Cage can act and that is not the head line. He can be irritating and lame at times but there are films where he really did well. Matchstick Men is certainly one of them. This is in fact one of the best film directed by Ridley Scott. The con acts are so so but the final con really steals the show. Sam Rockwell rocks as usual and Alison Lohman is really cute as a teenager. In a nut shell Matchstick Men is a good con film and Nicolas Cage deserves praise for the good work for a change. "

What have I been watching in 2012 (93 movies items)

"24.7. TV Yllättävän hauska leffa joka loppua kohti tosin alkoi mennä melko synkäksi ja jopa surulliseksi. Melko ristiriitaisia tunteita herättävä, mutta kaikenkaikkiaan tämä leffa oli positiivinen kokemus. En ollut koskaan kuullutkaan tästä aiemmin, mutta nyt sattumalta osuin kanavalle. Hyvä näin."

A Complete review of Ridley Scott's work (20 movies items)

" Cast : Nicolas Cage, Sam Rockwell, Alison Lohman What was it about? A phobic con artist and his protégé are on the verge of pulling off a lucrative swindle when the former's teenage daughter arrives unexpectedly. My two cents: I have really a weak spot for this flick. Indeed, for once, Ridley Scott made this time an 'actor' movie. What I mean with this is that, instead of focusing on the directing and the visuals (which were pretty good though anyway), the strength of thi"
