Le Petit Soldat

Jean-Luc Godard, 1963. Interesting film in this director's oeuvre, but wasn't personally satisfying. Horrific scenes of torture, though, including a kind of waterboarding...

Why We Fight

Vital documentary about the industrial-military-congressional complex by Eugene Jarecki.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

Interesting film, beautifully done. I liked the attention payed on Robert Ford's life post-killing of JJ. Great acting by Casey Affleck(!)

Bourne Ultimatum

Good stunts & fight scenes.

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

Kinda funny, kinda lame, still found it weird that this movie was made while Guantanamo continues to be what it is, but maybe it'll serve to increase or at least maintain attention on the issue.

The Sopranos

I finally finished watching the entire series. What a trip! I'll miss Tony and the rest of the violent, dysfunctional gang...

Le Petit Lieutenant

Somber French policier.

Black Snake Moan

Intense movie about the blues, loneliness and redemption. Don't let it scare you away - let it shock you awake. Craig Brewer continues to be a director to watch.

Dog Soldiers

Neil Marshall's first film follows a group of soldiers battling werewolves in rural Scotland. Over the top and sometimes campy but overall a great effort and worth checking out.

Extras - Extra Special Season Finale

Great, great stuff. Brought tears to my eyes and made me laugh out loud several times. I really love Gervais and Merchant's writing and acting.

Forbidden Kingdom

Jackie Chan and Jet Li Kung Fu family flick. The kids enjoyed it.

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters

Great documentary about classic video game competition for high scores.
