Seven Pounds (2008)
A bit predictable, but with good intentions and quality work this film turned out great.

Beat (2000)
What I really liked about this movie was the actors, and how well they played their parts.

Octane (2003)
So.... yeah. I'm not really sure what to think of this film. I don't like that Barton chick, I don't think she's an actor at all, and well the whole plot was kind of....meh. And I felt like there was some sort of a pro life message hidden in the story, like when that dude was all "the day you tried to kill your unborn baby, you let me in" something like that. Call me crazy but that felt like he was preaching about abortion. And I just felt really weird in a bad way, and I don't know what to think. I hate it when I get the feeling that somebody is trying to preach or something... Ugh, I'm just speechless in a very negative way.

Elephant (2003)
I'm just speechless. This film is freaking amazing. It's not overly dramatic and cliched. It just states things like they are... you can just make your own opinion based on that. And I love it. I heard about this film a long time ago, about year and a half, and during this time I have never even once heard somebody talk about this. No one, except people in Listal. Now I'm just ashamed I took so much time to watch this, because this is such a beautiful piece of work. More people should see this. I always find it interesting to see unknown actors, and in this movie all the young actors were so great.

Love Object (2004)
I've decided to watch more obscure and rare films this month, and maybe the next month too, and I found some pretty interesting films to watch. And Love Object was one of them. I just randomly came across this film and since I liked Desmond Harrington in Dexter and the plot seemed weird enough, I got really interested. The film starts really slow but you always know that there's something wrong with Kenneth, who is the main character. You just don't quite yet know how wrong. But after the film starts to near the end, it gets really interesting. And that twist... I really liked that. I don't wanna give too much away, if some of you actually want to see this one, all I can say is that this was a very interesting piece of work. Really rare I'd say, seems like not so many people have seen this.

What really bothered me was that the music was crappy and it was too loud compared to speaking volume. Since I didn't have subtitles and english isn't my mother tongue, it was sometimes hard to understand what everybody was talking about. Otherwise the film was boring, kind of messy and it just didn't make a very lasting impression.

Lonesome Jim (2005)
The best part of the film was when Jim was telling Anika about his favorite writers, and how they all had experienced an unpleasant death.

Well Julie Benz was definitely adorable but otherwise, meh.

Hero Wanted (2008)
This was special in its own way, and the characters are what make this film worth while.

Blade (1998)
Well here's a re-watch of the month! I decided to check the blade trilogy again for fun. I realized that I've made a misjudgment on the first two films. I mean, I always loved Blade as a character but I just didn't find these movies so appealing the first time. But something has changed, and I developed a some sort of an attachment to these films (quite like the way I fell in love with the Crank movies). I get it though why people don't like them. I don't even exactly know what has changed, I guess it's just me and my movie taste but I can't help but like Blade I & II. The third one still isn't really worth while. Say what you want, but I've made my mind about these films (at least for now, who knows if something will change..) and these movies kick ass!

I've already seen this a couple of times but it still doesn't impress me. There are some good moments, the main character is somehow interesting with all the quirkiness.

Definitely not my cup of tea. I just didn't find the episodes to be interesting, it lacked that something. It was watchable but that's it, it just wasn't special in any way. Oh right I forgot... there was one special thing... Steve Buscemi!

It didn't reach my expectations at all. There was a little bit of that Coen factor but in the end the film was just quite... insignificant. I didn't find it to be special in any way and even though there were some great actors that did a great job, it was an average movie for me.

Four Rooms (1995)
This was cool. The first episode was lame, but it got better. But I have to say that the Robert Rodriguez one was freaking awesome. Clearly best of the bunch. Tim Roth was amazing as always all in all this was a really fun flick.
drugs's rating:

Lol, almost forgot this whole thing.

My goal this month: watch more movies..... MUCH MORE.
