Michael Clayton (2007)
great movie. Everybody here should see it.
American Gangster (2007)
very good movie. LOTS of familiar faces in it, too.
Brødre (Brothers) (2004)
After having seen Festen, another Danish film starring Ulrich Thomsen, which I thought was great, I would have had high expectations if I had known before renting this movie that he was in it. It wasn't as good as Festen (the Celebration) but it was still a good film and it is certainly worth seeing.

Has anyone seen Children of Men? Kind of a strange concept but, I really enjoyed it. 8.5/10
Yeah, I thought it was pretty good.

Watched Old Boy and Battle Royale recently, due to hearing a lot of good things about them.
Oldboy was a great movie. All of Chan Wook Park's movies are good as far as I've seen. I checked out everything that I could get from Netflix. JSA, Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Lady Vengeance, and his short film from Three Extremes. They were all good.
And Battle Royale is an extremely entertaining movie. Kinji Fukasaku has done a couple of good movies. I thought Under the Flag of the Rising Sun was really good. And I've seen a couple of his old Yakuza films. Graveyard of Honor, Yakuza Graveyard, Sympathy for the Underdog. There are a couple of others I plan on seeing such as the Yakuza Papers and Blackmail is My Life. I'd stay away from Shogun's Samurai and Samurai Reincarnation, though. Those were shit. I guess samurai films just weren't his thing.
Speaking of Yakuza films, I should start watching Seijun Suzuki films again. I have Tokyo Drifter and Branded to Kill on VHS somewhere. I haven't seen either in a while. Maybe I should check out Youth of the Beast some time.

- Hell Boy 2.
I want to see that sometime. It looks pretty cool.
lol Guillermo Del Toro?
directed some of my favorite movies like Pan's Labrienth and The Orphanage which were both extremely dark and had absolutly no humor.
Actually, he only produced the Orphanage. I thought Pan's Labyrinth was excellent. It's one of my favorite films. You should see the Devil's Backbone. Del Toro made it before Pan's Labyrinth. Don't expect it to be as good as Pan's LAbyrinth, but it is very good (or at least I thought so last time I saw it). I think he was supposed to be making another film that would make a trilogy with Pan's Labyrinth and the Devil's Backbone, the common theme being the Spanish Civil War. But I think it was canceled or something. I believe it was called 3993.

the Darkman trilogy,
I saw the first Darkman movie. I can't really remember it anymore.
Oh, and I got a ticket for Thursday's midnight screening of The Dark Knight, utterly thrilled for that.
I must see that movie.
