    Eastern Promises

    Viggo's a beast.

    Didn't really understand the hype, though. End was really disappointing.

    Invasion... with Nicole Kidman and that dude who played in Casino Royale... it was an armaggedon type zombie movie and it sucked ass... Nicole is overrated as an actress..

    recommended.



    Maybe, but...

    the others (2001)
    the hours (2002)

    She delivered tour de force performances that lived up to her billing in those two.

    I think you're probably biased and would dock points from a performance of hers before even seeing it, [funny], because she was undoubtedly masterful.

    Nah yo, she just has these airs about her that's off-putting... it infiltrates every role damn near... I don't know if it's because she's British or what.

    I like Rene Zellweger better.

    Zellweger has these annoying eye squints and lip puckers that seem to surface in each performance as well.

    All actors have something about them that comes up in almost every movie... I think it depends on whether you like or dislike them to begin with. Does Nicole Kidman herself off-screen get on your nerves?

    I'll make this my last post on the matter... Sorry for derailing the thread, Lang.

    Little Miss Sunshine.

    I was aware that there was hype surrounding it, but I didn't actually know anything at all about the film before I saw it. I thought it was excellent. Brilliant acting all round, and the theme of thwarted dreams was handled perfectly. I wouldn't consider it a modern classic, though.

    She's Australian.

    I think Kidman's good, but Naomi Watts is a similar actress who's a lot better, IMO.

    You read my mind... After I made that last post, I was thinking that Watts would be a better comparison to Kidman than Zellweger. Her performance in Mulholland Dr. didn't get the credit it deserved. She's in an upcoming remake of Hitchcock's The Birds.



    Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the best I've seen at removing every gesture, subtle trait, etc. that can be related to his off-line self or previous characters... I was amazed at how immersed he was in Daniel Plainview for There Will Be Blood.

    The Poseidon Adventure. Very enjoyable, definitely recommended.

    And just to chime in on the other topic floating through the thread:
    Nicole Kidman > Naomi Watts > Renee Zellweger

    Modern Japanese films are pretty funny...even if not intended to be. This kind of reminded me of some of you niggas. definitely recommend...it's a nice light-hearted film.

    I love Zellweger's eye squints and lip puckers, though... Kidman just seems like one of those actresses who's afraid to get her hands dirty... I bet she has standards and what not... I like actors with wide range who are a bit more daring...

    Yeah, I love Naomi Watts... she absolutely killed 21 Grams.

    Wanna know who's my favorite new up and coming actress? That Juno chick... can't remember her name... she also played in Hard Candy... she's a cutie, too.

    He's a true method actor... I see Paul Giamatti maturing to that level, too.

    I saw that movie before I really started analyzing movies more intensely... and so I wasn't really impressed with it at first... may have to watch it again now that I've had my "good taste awakening." I just remember some old lady watching a lot of tv, acting real maniacal... and Marlon Wayans and that other dude being strung out on drugs.

    I thought "Little Miss Sunshine" was overrated.
