    just saw what i think will be my movie of the year on saturday, philip seymour hoffman in "synecdoche new york" - i think this is pronounced sin-ECK-doe-key. by the writer charlie kaufman of "eternal sunshine of the spotless mind" and "being john malkovich" among other stuff, but his first time directing. fans of david lynch should give this a serious look, some mind-bending meta/movie-within-a-movie stuff goes on and it's quite funny despite the overall weight of sadness that envelopes it. i believe the term synecdoche is a 'metonym' or something - essentially when you refer to a part of something but really mean the whole thing. e.g. "my mother won't let me borrow her wheels" where wheels=car obviously. strange, strange and daring film, not everyone's cup of tea but the performances were magnificent, and i really mean that, no joke!

    Forgot about that, must check that out. Charlie Kaufmans films amoung my favourites. Sounds a bit like Adaptation.

    Watched Zack and miri make a Porno at the weekend. Pretty funny stuff. Not ground breaking but if you like Kevin smith rom-coms (NOT jersey girl) then its one of the better ones. More Chasing Amy than Clerks. Some real LOL moments too.

    never saw it, but i've just read some about "adaptation" pete, and indeed synecdoche seems to cover some similar ground. dude loves his meta-narratives or narrative wormholes or.. whatever the *&^% they are. hope i didn't inflate the film too much, it's definitely not for everyone, and i think critically it's at 65% on the tomatometer. but since you like kaufman i can't rec' it any higher! i think the last film that hit me like this was "there will be blood" but that was only after three days; this beast is more immediate than that but still a head-scratcher to be sure.

    All his stuff very strange, sometimes it works... Adaptation is one of most clever films seen, probably far too clever for its own good. Remember watching it the first time & didn't know what was happening for the first half...until it clicked... Definitely acquired taste.

    Showing how bang up to date I am, I watched Adrift lastnight on Film4. Man what a crock that was.
    Obviously I knew the premise of the film, and tried not to be cynical from the start, but the script was so much of a clunker that it was soon hard not to be cynical.
    The actors, I guess, did the best with what they had, but there was just nothing there. Each new element that was added to their predicament was done in such a ham-fisted way; and was either signposted from early on, or done in such a forced manner that you were left thinking 'well why would they do that?'.
    Actually at times I almost found myself shouting at the screen.

    I must confess to flicking over to 'Have I got news for you' at one stage, but was back in time to see the gobsmacking ending.

    Saw this, I thought it was great. I think it's one that you either love or hate, I loved it. It's quite impartial too, which is good. Anyone else seen it?

    Watched Red Violin last night. The story of a violin made by an Italian in 1681 (can't remember his name) through to modern day (it was one of Puccini's violins at one stage). Quite a strange movie but very, very good

    Watched half of Beloved Immortal (story of Beethoven's will) tonight but stopped cause my housemate had to go to bed. (You might have guessed she works for Lyric FM at this stage) Very good so far and can't wait to watch the second half

    Saw a good few movies recently

    Rescue Dawn - about an American soldier who gets caught in Vietnam but manages to escape his captors and goes on the run. Not too bad, but since it was C Bale and directed by Herzog I was expecting a bit more.

    Into The Wild - Now I had read the excellent book beforehand so knew the story but even with this I was still amazed. Great movie and kind of adds to the book (but must read the book first!). The young actor is great - never seen him before but he gave a masterful performance
    The movie is basically about a young fella who goes into the wild!
    The scene near the end with him and the old fella just as he is about to head to Alaska was very touching - a real tearjerker

    There Will Be Blood - not too bad , bloody long though at over 2 and a half hours. As many have said - would this movie have been different if Brad Pitt or Cruise was in it - I think so - Lewis really makes this movie -

    No Country For Old Men - alright - was a bit disappointed with the end but then it is a Coen movie and that was probably done intentionally. Good acting, but its the kind of movie that is hard to figure out (much like the book - I guess)

    So thats 2007 done for - anygood movies out this year that i can look at?

    seen Body of Lies.

    I seen Body of Lies last Saturday,the gf liked it but i thought was just ok,maybe 6/7 out of 10,decent story but Crowe CANT do an American accent.He tried to do a New York accent in another film by the same director as this American Gangster.but failed then too.Di Caprio is half decent and most of the supporting actors are really good.I'd grudingly recommend it.

    Crowe did a pretty decent accent in LA Confidential.

    In Bruges had be laughing most of the way through it despite it's shockingly violent ending. Colin Farrell was excellent in it. And Almost Famous, while the script wasn't up to much, was made with enough love and care to make it a decent movie; Kate hudson and Frances McDormand really make it though.

    Rented "Indiana Jones & the kingdom of the crystal skulls" and "Ironman" over the weekend. Both fairly average IMO 3 out of 5. Probably the worst Indiana Jones so far.

    PS What with the resurecting of all the lte 70's and 80's acton heroes in the last year or two? (Rock, Rambo and Indiana)

    Watched Wall-E on DVD last night. I didnt see it on the big screen, but I thought it was excellent. Some wonderful digs at Corporate America too. Amazing how a film with so little dialogue can end up so good.
