        • ^Have been wanting to watch that miniseries for a few months now. Giamati is one of my favorite actors, I wish he were in more movies.

          This weekend I saw, "Public Enemies." It was 10/10, and it seemed like the whole theatre was engaged throughout. Depp was amazing, as usual, and Bale and the leading lady were great as well. My only complaint was that the sound seemed kind of low in some parts, but in retrospect I think they were trying to capture that 30's mood.

              Love that film. Great cast.

              My favorite scene is the war game one where the convicts infiltrate Robert Ryans HQ.

                      • How to get rid of others

                        A somewhat dark Danish film addressing the problems posed by Europe's social welfare policies. When it is discovered that the least productive 5% of Danish society society consumes 60% of government spending, the conservative politicians decide to quietly eradicate the problem. As much a criticism of left wing social policies as it is of the limited view of the right in addressing the problems that have emerged as a result.

                          • Sounds interesting, Skoblin. What's the title in Danish?

                            Last movie that I watched was "Mr Freedom" by William Klein (1969) borrowed from the Vancouver Public Library's magnificent Criterion Collection. Also a few weeks ago "Kuhle Wampe" (1932): http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...76152094085175

                            • The last three films I saw were the Underworld trilogy. Could have been better especially the second one, but the third had nice visuals.

                              Films to turn off brain, collapse and enjoy with a drink. About half the films I watch come into this category (at least).

                                Laurent, the title in Danish is Hvordan vi slipper af med de andre. Personally, my own feeling is that the makers of the film were uncertain whether they wanted to make a satire or a dark political movie. At times the story line goes a bit over the top and you may find the music somehow misplaced in relation to content matter. But still - an interesting film.
