    You have NEVER been let down by his work? Even the Last Airbender which was absolute awful dreck. The directing was just...did it even exist? He started out red hot but I think he has seriously fallen off. Not sure what happened with him. Maybe it was too much pressure to constantly try and come up with a new twist which is what he became famous for.

    M. Night fans UNITE! I can't say I loved everything he's ever done, but I love quite a lot of his work, and I still have a lot of respect for him.

    I never saw Angela's Ashes because I read the book in high school (I think it was high school, if not then late middle school). It was so depressing then that I never really could bring myself to see it on film. I think I had it in my Netflix queue for a while but just never watched it.

    I was 9-10 in 1999 but I've seen all of the top 10 highest grossers.

    Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace - To say I was obsessed with this movie would be an understatement. I was Amidala for Halloween, I had all the movie tie-ins, I subscribed to Star Wars magazine, etc. One of the biggest things of my childhood, really.

    The Sixth Sense - M. Night Shyamalan - I loathe Shyamalan, but this is a serious fantastic film. Too bad everything else just blows chunks (except Unbreakable, which was okay).

    Toy Story 2 - My least favorite Toy Story movie, which doesn't mean much because the other two are masterpieces. I just didn't really like Jessie, honestly.

    The Matrix - One of my favorite movies of all time. Too bad the sequels are just godawful. The only role in history that could have been played well by Keanu Reeves, because his woodenness actually worked super well for it And Carrie Anne Moss was just wonderful. Trinity is one of my favorite sci-fi females of all time

    Tarzan - A decent Disney movie I'll never bother to watch again.

    The Mummy - I've seen this at east 40 times, no exaggeration. I can quote the entire thing. It's one of those movies where if it's on TV, I watch it, regardless of how many times I've seen it, plus we owned it and watched it all the time when I was a kid. I have no clue why I like this movie so much.

    Notting Hill - I distinctly remember my mother furiously whispering angrily at my father for not somehow knowing ahead of time that the two characters had sex in the movie while my sister and I sat there. I also distinctly remember that I didn't even give a crap until I realized that whatever was happening onscreen was something I Shouldn't Be Seeing. I've seen it a bunch of times since then and every time that scene pops up I feel inexplicably awkward even though I'm now 24.

    The World Is Not Enough - Denise Richards is the worst Bond girl of all time, Sophie Marceau is one of the best, and the Garbage theme song is absolutely amazing. All, Robert Carlyle!

    American Beauty - I absolutely adore this movie. Annette Bening should be in everything.

    Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me - I saw this in theaters but I can't recall why or how, and I don't remember anyone getting mad about the much-more-overt sexual crap in this versus Notting Hill. I hate this series (though I love Heather Graham for unexplainable reasons.)

    The Red Violin - One of those movies I make all my friends watch. I just love it, and not just because Corigliano is a genius. The movie is such a work of art, truly something special.

    Hilary and Jackie - One of the most accurate portrayals of the life of a musician I've seen, even if it made me horribly uncomfortable at times.

    Cruel Intentions - One of my all-time favorite movies, and another one I've seen over a dozen times. Ryan Phillipe is terrible in it, and it's so melodramatic, but I love the soundtrack and when I was a stupid teenager I thought it was the coolest, sexiest movie ever. I guess that stuck because I still love it.

    Election - Reese Witherspoon is a genius.

    The Green Mile - I've only seen it once and yet it stuck with me quite viscerally. Impossibly powerful and heart-wrenching. I had nightmares about the scene where the man is electrocuted without the sponge.

    Never Been Kissed - One of my favorite girl's night movies. Just incredibly charming and fun, even if it is ludicrous.

    Girl, Interrupted - I don't think it's any secret that I adore Angelina Jolie. I think she's an incredible person (with, yes, notable flaws) and is incredibly talented. It boggles my mind when people say she can't act with this film, Changeling, and A Mighty Heart in her resume.

    Mumford - I've only seen this because Mary McDonnell is my favorite actress and I have seen pretty much anything she has been in that I could get my hands on. I can't say I especially like this film but I own it because Mary McDonnell.

    She's All That - One of the quintessential films that teenagers my age saw, even if I wasn't quite there yet. I can quote most of this movie, too, even if it's kind of awful. I always thought Rachel Leigh Cook would have a better career than she did, though. She was actually pretty good and also very pretty.

    October Sky - This movie really affected me. My dad and I saw it in theaters and the whole story blew my away. I loved it. I kept asking him about Sputnik and his childhood all night afterwards and I still pull it out when I'm at home to watch it with him.

    The Iron Giant - I only saw this in the last few years, but it really is a truly fantastic children's film. I don't know why it wasn't more popular at the time, and I'm glad it's now a cult film because more children should see it. It's a wonderful story that is well-crafted and beautiful to watch.

    Fight Club - Universally considered to be pretty much the coolest movie ever by hipsters of my generation, probably because Brad Pitt embodies cool in it. I really hated Helena Bonham Carter in it and still do though. I don't think I've ever admitted that before because Fight Club is Perfect and you Cannot Critique It. At least not in my age group, lol.

    I think I'm just going to stop because I think I've seen about half the films released that year looking at the Wiki page. At least 40 of them. I had no idea. Oh, but I have to mention 10 Things I Hate About You, one of my favorite teen movies, because Heath Ledger is impossibly perfect in it and that's when I first decided he was The Best and it was the main reason I was so incredibly upset when he died. I also just loved Julia Stiles in it.

    Now I want to go watch all of these again.

    I was completely unable to get through Phantom Menace until the RiffTrax came out. Even then it was a chore.

    "Boys Don't Cry"-took me years to watch; never available at library (not even by interlibrary loan which truly pizzed me off(, never qt hastings, never hidden away in a dollar bin at big lots. Finally I can rent it from... itunes I think it was...and omfg what a film this is and what an excellent performance from Hillary Swank. Highly highly recomend!!!

    Other great films of 1999:
    Magnolia
    Fight Club
    The Thin Red Line
    Three Kings

    Good but not great: American Beauty, Toy Story 2

    I am re-watching The Hours tonight. One of my favorite movies of all time. I just love everything about it. The acting, the score, the writing, the directing. It is just a masterpiece. I know some people find it boring but it wasn't meant to be an exciting movie. After this I may watch another favorite, Adaptation. Meryl Streep owns me, can you tell?

    I saw Alexander Payne's "Nebraska" last night and it was very good . Bruce Dern, Will Forte (who did a surprise audience Q&A after the movie! ) and especially June Squibb were all amazing. IMO, a much better movie than his last ("The Descendancts," which was good but really plodded along).

    The B&W cinematography is amazing and adds so much to the "empty plain" feel.

    Not sure how a small family dramedy like this will fit in with big Oscar movies, but it definitely deserves consideration in the acting, cinematography and writing categories.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    There was a book at the library (yes I live there lol) called "the meryl streep film club." Something like that-fiction book. But I wouldn't mind joining a real one. She and Nicole Kidman are my fav actresses :-)

    Someone is hogging the Tom Cruise films so I've had to move on. I got "Trance" and tried to watch it last night. I couldn't follow the plot, fell asleep, and every time I woke up someone was in bed with someone...else...so I don't know if that was good or bad lol. I took it back today and got "Gangster Squad" just because it has Sean Penn-my theory been Sean Penn for the win! We'll see...lol

    I really liked Trance. Very twisty-turny. You do need to be able to stay awake to follow it, though.

    Gangster Squad was horrendously boring. It was such a let down - I mean, look at that cast! And the subject! But nope. Boring.

    I watched The Purge last night. I thought it was rather predictable but somewhat interesting. Not something I would highly recommend but if you like horror movies then might as well give it a try.

    Some scarier stuff I've seen recently:

    Brotherhood of the Wolf - I thought this one was kind of different, mainly a drama but also with a bit of a supernatural/thriller/horror bent to it also. Added bonus is the beautiful, handsome cast.


    Dead Set - This was actually a U.K. mini-series that has about the same running time as Brotherhood of the Wolf. It's based on what would happen if a zombie apocalypse broke out during mid-season of Big Brother. So it's funny and dramatic and scary and very, very campy. Tons of fun!

    The New Daughter (Kevin Costner, Samantha Mathis, Erik Palladino) - Kind of a gothic (horror) drama. Not bad considering I saw it at the library and don't remember this Kevin Costner movie even hitting the theatres!

    Funny Games (Naomi Watts, Tim Roth and Michael Pitt) - Okay, this is supposed to be a societal critique of our fascination with violence. Supposedly a high brow film and since this is what the director intended: EPIC FAIL. But as far as psychologically abusive torture porn, it succeeds. I'd say skip it unless you have to see everything done by the great cast in this one.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I love Naomi Watts and the film sounds right up my alley. Too bad you don't think it worked.

    1000misspenthours.com has some of the horribliest horror movies reviewed as well as assorted other weird films. The reviewer is v gd and fun to read.

    "Gangster Squad" was gd but graphically gorey but it is based on true story so this is not gratuitous gore, it really happened. Many more stars in it than Sean Penn including bonus! Michael Pena. Whee! Worth watching because for one reason it highlights the Big Question WWII vets faced after the war : I know how to fight, but not how to live. Also much questioning of who is really the bad guy. Interesting. Worth watching once.

    Now on to "iron man 3"
    I took a sneak peak at "42" but am saving it for later.

    The book it was based on, Rocket Boys, is wonderful too.

    I would never have picked you as a horror/slasher pic movie fan, IceAlisa!

    Going to see "Philomena" and "August:Osage County" later today. I am BEYOND excited!!!
