I watched "May" the other day on cable and like it quite a bit. One of the better horror/thillers I've seen in some time. But I like twisted movies so it may not be your cup of tea.

Micheal Cera is fantastic at everything he does - it's all about nuance with him, and I find him hilarious.

It may have been an "Unrated" version.. but yeah. When Owen Wilson's character almost passes out in the hot tub, a couple guys come out of the sauna to help him, one is black and almost touching the floor while kneeling, the other is a white guy and well it's hard to tell he's a man except for the balls.

Haven't had a chance to watch a movie in ages, but watched a chick flick last night. I watched Bridesmaids and while there were plenty of continuity problems I completed overlooked them and laughed my ass off.

This is my own hybrid. It's a mix between Kentucky Bluegrass and Northern California sensimila. The great thing about this is you can play 36 holes on it in the morning and then get stoned to the bejeesus with it that night

I haven't read this entire thread, but has anyone seen the new Woody Allen movie, Midnight in Paris?

Wow, I hadn't even heard about that.

Does he play a goofy-lookin', comically neurotic guy that still ends up with a smokin' hot, intellectual chick? :lol:

(j/k I like most of his movies.)

Well, I like Owen Wilson...and the chick from "Red Eye" is smokin' in my opinion...so why not? 8)

Watched Black Swan the other night. I really liked it. Gave me a Cronenberg vibe which is good in my book. Plus all the weird lesbian stuff worked in its favor. :)

Agree with all that - the scene on the final performance where she completely transforms mid performance was a favorite moment for me.

Road to Perdition

Loved it. Its pretty gritty though, my toddler was running around & stopped to watch more of it than I would prefer he did. Definitely a movie for guys who like movies & not for kids. Jamie I'm sure was gritting her teeth about it but let it fly because I'd had it for so long & had held off on watching it knowing it wouldn't be good for the kid to see.

And by gritty, I mean more realistic graphic gun violence than the game "Fallout" shows...

Sometimes when you're burying a guy alive, for a moment or two you start feeling sorry for him. And then it passes and you keep on shoveling...

Yeah, we did too! It was kinda unique.

I wrote this after I saw the movie: http://www.altitude9.com/music/paris.mp3

I especially like the piano sample I used in this piece...sounds really mellow, imo.
