LOVED Inception. It reminded me a bit of Paprika, especially the scene with Joseph Gordon Levitt in that long hallway with the elevators. striking resemblance to a certain scene from that movie.
Kickass was pretty cool. And Avatar was pretty good (despite Sam Worthington), though way too many people love this movie too much.
I also watched Ip Man 2. I was all excited to see Sammo Hung in this until the fight scene with him and Donnie Yen came up and it was full of VERY awkward wire moves that looked ridiculous. It still had some coolness in it, though. But the first one is so much better.

Brother is pretty good. I have that on DVD.
I was also looking at some Shaw Brother films which going REALLY cheap. Very tempting.
For Shaw Brothers movies, I recommend the 36th Chamber of Shaolin, Crippled Avengers, and Five Deadly Venoms.

Yeah they already started fucking the series up with the second one.
Yup, yet I thought it was so cool when I was like 8 years old.
This is the cover they used.
wow. That's uh...pretty lame.

I just noticed there are 121 movies in my Netflix Queue. Haha, that's going to take me forever.
I have 440, though that includes several tv shows and some movies I'll probably end up removing without watching.

I saw the remake of I Spit on Your Grave a few days ago and it was quite a unique experience. I decided to write a review. A strong stomach is definitely required for viewing.
Does this one also include a painfully long rape scene at the beginning and a guy getting his wang cut off at the end?

I just got done watching 'Mongol' and I have to say it was truly epic.

Yet another one that's been sitting on my queue for a while.

Yes. what a fucking trip. I just got the second one, too. haven't watched it yet.

As a gentlemen who loves both Alien and Aliens, let me just say - please don't watch Alien 3. Honestly, it almost ruins Aliens.
agreed. fuck Alien 3 and Resurrection.
So yeah, I watched Sonatine - a Takeshi Kitano film.
That one was alright. Brother was much better, though. I also saw Fireworks and Violent Cop, but I can't really remember either of them.
Apparently, Beat Takeshi was a comedian first. It's weird seeing him on MXC/Takeshi's castle after watching him in Brother and Battle Royale and stuff. "Kenny stop teasing Mr. Kitano! He's gonna shoot you! I've seen him do it!"

Just watched Tokyo Godfathers
absolutely wonderful movie. one of my favorites.
R.I.P. Satoshi Kon.
fucking sad. He definitely had more to offer us, and the man wasn't even 60. Coincidentally, Millennium Actress was on its way from Netflix before I found out. It's sitting on my shelf now.

Saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It's an unpredictable and well-made thriller. That's all I have to say.
had my eye on this. I didn't realize it was based on a book until I heard my aunt going on about it. I think it's dumb that there's already an American film adaptation underway. Too many very recent movies are being remade by American film-makers without any reason that I can see.
