Iíd recommend Flashbacks Of A Fool and Into The Wild if you havenít seen them already.

I havenít heard of a few titles you listed above. A couple of them looks interesting (2 Days in Paris and Tell No One).

Ps: You meant Dark Knight, right? ;-)

Burn After Reading

I enjoyed watching ‘Gone Baby Gone’, on DVD. It was due for cinema release, but the topic was too sensitive due to the Maddie McCann (sp?) similarities.

Recommended.

In Bruges was definitely up there on my list, but I was sorely dissapointed with the lack of recognition it got. It deserved much more/

I watched “Gone Baby Gone” this evening but I wasn’t that impressed. It felt more like a long episode of a TV cop show rather than a movie. The dialogue was a little too cheesy, the story line a little too convoluted and the lead characters a bit too attractive to be believable.

Check out “Let the Right One In”. Awesome Swedish vampire movie that came out this year.

OK - I’m going to say this now but I really really did not get In Bruges at all.

I thought it was slow, drab and depressing. This is even more surprising when people were sure that I would like it.

What did I miss?!!?!

Burn after reading

Laura Zucchetti said on January 12, 2009 10:44 PM

Yes I agree Burn After Reading is high on my list. But what about “Choke” - I strangely enjoyed that.

The other on was “Eden Lake” What a thrilling and scary original film.

“Michael Clayton” - Another one!

“Funny Games” The remake of this was also fricking awsome! -
Sorry, getting way to excited. :D I love my films.

Happy New Year btw Andy.
