4/03 - The Story Of The Weeping Camel * - 3.5/5

March

3/31 - Finding Neverland * - 3.0/5

3/29 - Bangkok Loco * - 3.0/5

3/27 - The Incredibles - 5.0/5 (Still love it, but I really need to give it a rest.)

3/23 - Ong-Bak - 4.0/5 (A blast with a bunch of people.)

3/20 - Ninja Scroll, Vol. 1 * - 2.0/5 (Surprised how underwhelming this was, considering the Ninja Scroll movie is such a classic.)

3/19 - Reconstruction * - 4.0/5 (Very interesting, non-linear, visually stunning take on infidelity.)

3/18 - The Abyss - 4.0/5 (A true guilty pleasure of mine.)

3/15 - Paranoia Agent, Vol. 3 * - 3.0/5

3/13 - The Incredibles - 4.5/5 (3rd viewing, still just as good.)

3/13 - Logan's Run - 4.0/5 * (Yes it's dated but it's so refreshing to watch a sci-fi movie that isn't buried beneath layers of CGI.)

3/13 - Alive - 2.5/5 * (I really liked Versus but Azumi bit the big one. Alive leans closer to the latter end of the spectrum.)

3/13 - The Jacket - 3.0/5 +*

3/10 - Someday's Dreamers, Vol. 1 - 3.5/5 *

3/08 - A Man Escaped - 3.5/5 *

3/08 - Porco Rosso - 3.0/5 *

3/06 - The Incredibles - 4.5/5 + (Even better the second time around.)

3/05 - Cromartie High, Vol. 1 - 2.0/5 * (One of the stranger, more absurd and incoherent anime titles I've seen lately.)

February

2/28 - Five Star Stories * - 2.5/5

2/25 - Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind * - 3.5/5

2/24 - Kung Fu Hustle * - 3.0/5 (Not nearly as good as Shaolin Soccer, but still fun.)

2/22 - Shaolin Soccer - 4.0/5 (Probably one of most enjoyable films I watch, and a great film to watch with a bunch of people. Tons o' fun.)

2/20 - Constantine - 2.5/5 +*

2/19 - Ten Things I Hate About You - 3.5/5 (So cliched and formulaic, but so much fun.)

2/19 - Ghost In The Shell: Standalone Complex Vol. 4 * - 4.0/5 (One of my fave current anime series continues its strong streak.)

2/17 - Along Came Polly * - 1.5/5 (Admittedly, I only saw about 1/2 of the movie, but I doubt my opinion would improve if I'd seen any more.)

2/16 - Donnie Darko: The Director's Cut - 4.0/5 * (I think I prefer the original version.)

2/16 - Burn Up - 1.0/5 * (Ultra-lacklustre anime that tries to be sexy, violent, and funny, and fails miserably.)

2/16 - Sabu - 3.5/5 * (A period-piece melodrama by, of all people, Takashi Miike.)

2/15 - The Return - 4.5/5 *

2/14 - Shaun Of The Dead - 4.0/5 (Ah... the perfect Valentine's Day movie.)

2/13 - A Very Long Engagement +* - 3.0/5

2/11 - Last Life In The Universe - 4.5/5 (Just as enthralling and lovely as I remembered it.)

2/10 - The Forgotten * - 2.5/5 (Yawn. Interesting premise played out in a very uninteresting way. But as far as the premise goes, I think I'll stick with

Dark City

.)

2/07 - Arahan - 4.0/5 (Ultra-slick, ultra-commercial, ultra-fun big budget martial arts comedy.)

2/06 - The Legend Of The Evil Lake * - 2.5/5 (Really melodramatic but really shallow horror/supernatural martial arts, a la The Bride With White Hair.)

2/03 - Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, Pt 2 * - 3.5/5 (It's been awhile since I watched the series, but I still found this fairly enjoyable.)

2/02 - Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, Pt 1 * - 3.5/5

2/01 - Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow - 3.5/5

January

1/29 - 2046 - 3.5/5 (Lavish "sequel" of sorts to In The Mood For Love, but much bleaker and darker.)

1/22 - The Professional - 4.0/5 (One of my favorite "guilty pleasures".)

1/22 - Troy * - 3.0/5 (A fun little movie to watch, especially if you give it the MST3K treatment, like my roommates and I did this morning. The jokes practically write themselves.)

1/21 - House Of Flying Daggers + - 4.0/5 (With a second viewing, the movie's flaws become all the more apparent, and yet I can't help getting caught up by the amazing visuals and style. Still think Hero is better overall, though.)

1/20 - New Police Story * - 3.5/5 (Probably Jackie Chan's darkest film, though the melodrama and tragedy were piled on a tad too much, IMHO. Still, it's great to see Chan back in a decent HK production, and even though he's pushing 50, he's still got the moves.)

1/19 - Garden State * - 3.0/5 (Fairly charming, but ultimately, it's philosophy/outlook was just too empty and vacuous.)

1/16 - 3-Iron * - 3.5/5 (My first Kim Ki-Duk film. I can see how some people loved it, but it felt a little too slight and shallow for me. Maybe with repeated viewings...)

1/14 - Samurai Champloo, Vol. 1 * - 3.5/5

1/14 - Paranoia Agent, Vol. 2 * - 4.0/5

1/13 - Paranoia Agent, Vol. 1 * - 4.0/5

1/10 - Bruce Almighty * - 3.5/5

1/09 - Blue Remains * - 2.0/5

1/08 - Blister * - 3.5/5 (Very nice Japanese film about "otaku" - much more solid and dramatic than I was initially expecting, and actually hit quite close to home a couple of times.)

1/08 - Bright Future * - 4.0/5 (The only other Kiyoshi Kurosawa film I've seen is Cure, and this makes for a very nice balance to that film.)

1/06 - Casshern - 4.0/5

1/01 - All The Real Girls * - 3.0/5

1/01 - Collateral * - 4.0/5

I'll see if I can keep up with it this year:

January

The Return: 35stars.gif - honest, I wanted to love it and rave about it

Spider Man 2: 40stars.gif - still quite good, the second go-round

Monsters Inc.: 40stars.gif

Supersize Me: 45stars.gif - brilliant (excellent DVD extras, too)

To Be and to Have: 40stars.gif

Troy: 40stars.gif

Black Robe: 45stars.gif - wow, first time viewing

Intimate Strangers: 45stars.gif

* In Good Company : 35stars.gif

The Devil's Playground: 40stars.gif - highly worthwhile documentary

Ikiru: 45stars.gif - amazing - like an enactment of 'Ecclesiastes' (except it's funnier and in Japanese)

Time of the Wolf: 40stars.gif

A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy: 25stars.gif - 3.5 stars for its comedy, 1.5 stars for its moral center (or lack thereof)

O Brother, Where Art Thou?: 45stars.gif - nifty to see again, since I'm reading Homer's 'Odyssey' at the moment

The Village: 45stars.gif

February

* Sideways: 35stars.gif - a letdown, after all of the hullaballoo

The Five Obstructions: 35stars.gif - easier to appreciate than love

* Million Dollar Baby: 40stars.gif

Mean Creek: 50stars.gif

Story of the Weeping Camel: 45stars.gif

Thunder Road: 35stars.gif

Mr. 3000: 30stars.gif - no great shakes, but a fun baseball comedy

Secondhand Lions: 40stars.gif

Two Brothers: 45stars.gif - beautiful, moral family film

House of Sand and Fog: 40stars.gif

The Cat Returns: 35stars.gif

Porco Rosso: 35stars.gif - both this and the above film seem weaker than those of the prior crop of Miyazaki DVD releases

Cold Mountain: 25stars.gif - after reading the novel, this almost seems like an R-rated Hallmark movie

Human Resources: 40stars.gif ' after this and 'Time Out,' I'll be looking for new works by Cantet

March

* Hotel Rwanda: 45stars.gif

Before Sunrise: 40stars.gif

Spirited Away: 50stars.gif - what a beautiful film

Amadeus: 35stars.gif

* Robots: 40stars.gif - a fun family movie

Ladder 49: 40stars.gif - surprisingly good

The Shawshank Redemption: 40stars.gif - a tad overrated

Before Sunset: 45stars.gif

Signs: 40stars.gif - quite good, but the weakest of Shyamalan's major films, IMO

Slacker: 40stars.gif

* Merchant of Venice: 40stars.gif

April

Flight of the Phoenix: 30stars.gif

* Hostage: 15stars.gif

Shark Tale: 20stars.gif

Romeo+Juliet: 45stars.gif - amazing film, even after the 4th or 5th viewing

The Mission: 50stars.gif

The Wind Will Carry Us: 40stars.gif

Contact: 40stars.gif

Danny Deckchair: 35stars.gif

Babette's Feast: 50stars.gif

May

Fanny and Alexander: 50stars.gif

Enduring Love: 30stars.gif - great first half, very disappointing conclusion

* Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: 00stars.gif - a proud moment: my first zero-star film of the year!

Pieces of April: 35stars.gif

Death of Klinghoffer: 45stars.gif

Jesus of Montreal: 45stars.gif

*Star Wars, Episode III: 45stars.gif
