here's a summary
The Bourne Supremacy: Matt Damon is back! His clueless wherest art thou look fits the Bourne character like a glove. No CGIs in this flick (or none that I noticed), which brings a fresh perspective after CGI-laden movies in recent years. Classic spy noir-ish feel with the jet-setting of locales. Back from Europe, so it appeals to me.
Collateral: The second time you see Tom Cruise taking on a villainous character, but still cocky nonetheless (who can fault him with his megawatt smile?) Michael Mann was one of the reasons why I wanna watch this film, but the REAL reason is Jamie Foxx! Been a fan of his since his Jamie Foxx Show days... and it's refreshing to see him in a non-comedic role. Paul Oakenfold's Ready Steady Go is in this one as well
Fahrenheit 9/11: Enjoyed this flick thoroughly. Makes you wonder at the end of it though, whether what's really happening is really happening as it is, or are there undertones and dealings which we the ordinary folks are not aware of and are being manipulated. One of the best parts of the show suggests Animal Farm like characteristics... all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others
Spiderman 2 at IMAX: If you like this movie, how can you not fork out that extra to catch it in its digital glory in an IMAX setting? So clear, you can see the pimples on everyone's face, and the amount of intricate work they did on the costume. Not to mention sharing the exhilatering web slinging in and around NY City
The Village: M Night Shyamalan has restored my faith in his movies. Simple story, told in a complicated way to reveal a twist (like his others), I rank this one second only to The Sixth Sense. And you were expecting a horror flick? Pah! Bryce Dallas Howard (Ron Howard's daughter) puts in an excellent performance for a newbie, and see if you can spot M Night in this movie too (just like his others)
Yet to catch Alien Vs Predator, Stepford Wives and Catwoman. Anyone wanna join me?
