    Based on the following scale, rate the movie and leave the next to be rated:

    5 stars - Loved it
    4 - Really Liked It
    3 - Liked It
    2 - Didn't Like It
    1 - Hated It

    (I figure that this might be a good way to boost my "what shall I watch next" list)
    If you need help on which movie is which, check out Internet movie database


    Starting with:

    Pulp Fiction

    ***** Loved it. Very hard to watch in some places, but Frank Darabont does a really good job directing Stephen King prision-based stories. ;)

    Monster's Ball **** It was very dark but the thought that two people from such incredibly different sides of hell could come together and rehumanize one another that was miraculous!

    Friday Night Lights?

    I'm actually due to get that in a couple days from Netflix. It had a really long wait so it must be good.

    I'll give an update on FNL this weekend.

    I hated Lost in Translation, but I'll go with 2 stars. Part of my detest for it is all the hype it got when it wasn't that great after all.

    oooh, someone replied! I didn't think anyone would so I changed it to Pirates!

    Magnolia, hmmmm, that is a hard one. **** only for the utter randomness of the end. It looses one star for being too long :p

    Ok Pirates of the Caribbean again!

    I give Pirates a 3. Wasn't great, but didn't suck.

    Magnolia, a 2. It's been a long time since I've seen it, but I remember thinking it was pretty wierd and the ending sucked (and something about raining frogs).

    Secondhand Lions

    I haven't seen secondhand lions, but didn't it have Haley Joel (I see dead people) Osment in it? I think that was the reason I never saw it!
    How about another of his fabulous films?
    A.I. (if anyone gives this a star....)

    A.I. gets minus seventeen stars. artificial intelligence is precisely what you'd need to have in order to derive any enjoyment from that cinematic silage heap. this was one of the very, very few movies EVER which has made me feel physically ill (quite an achievement, considering the last thing on screen which made me rush to the bathroom to retch was mel gibson dancing in What Women Want).

    After I enjoyed Boogie Nights, If figured that I'd love Magnolia too, but it left me a bit lukewarm.

    I'd still have to give it a ****, though, just for the outstanding Aimee Mann soundtrack!

    (Since it was mentioned, has anyone seen Hero? I thought it looked fun.)

    What about Memento?

    Memento *****

    Weird, fascinating. I found myself afraid to miss a thing or I'd never figure it out. A fine example of moviemaking.

    28 Days Later?

    Leung - It did have HJO in it, but it's really cute. He wasn't at all annoying. I laughed my ass off. Plus it has Michael Caine and Robert Duval. They worked great together (like Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau).

    28 Days Later - That was freaky. I like a cheesy horror movie every now and then. I give it a solid 3.



    Next, a movie that has one of my all time favorite quotes:
    "Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days."

    Bull Durham?
