Yesterday I saw Undead - a very cheesy production IMO. Nothing special. The theme is quite similar to that of the Dawn of the Dead, but there's also UFO here so the confusion was total :wacko:
The other one was Memento. Well, that was a really good one. Lately I have affinity towards psycho thrillers. Don't know what's going on with me  :lol:

In a movie theater, the last films I saw were Closer and Alexander on the same day. At home, my last film was Michael Mann's The Last Of The Mohicans.

Still haven't seen Alexander but I'm going to...Hope it's more historically based than Troy

At least Oliver Stone gives you the impression that Alexander is historically accurate, except that the actors are talking in English instead of Greek. I didn't know that much about the historical background, so I can't really make a comment on that. Basically the movie is built up like a history lesson. And that's why I didn't find Alexander very exciting as a film. It took me about an hour until I started to care the slightest bit about the main character. And towards the end the movie starts draging again. It just doesn't want to end. A shorter version might have worked better cinematically. Oliver Stone has done better jobs in the past. Vangelis did a nice score. The intro reminded me of his work on Blade Runner.

Exorcist - The Beggining - not bad, I liked it... but the ending could be better, the priest returns to Vatican  <_<
Alexander is a nice movie, definitively much better then Troy (imho)  ;)

Bladerunner. An old movie, but luckily we have art cinema here, so they play old movies that are good and well done, not like most of nowadays' movies.
But otherwise.... Tomorrow I'm gonna take the time to wathc Odyssey 2001 once more again. I like old sci-fi films.

You saw Blade Runner on the silver screen?
That's one of my favorite films. Every frame of that movie is a beauty. Combined with Vangelis' psychodelic score is an off-world experience. I envy you. I wish I'll have that experience one day.
Did they show the '82 original cut (with Harrison's bored voice overs and the unneccessary happy ending) or the '92 director's cut?

I'd love to see 2001 in a theater, too. I missed the chance when the restored version was released for another theatrical run.

I like martial art movies the best. The last one I saw was one of the many which featured Jet Li.

Requiem for a Dream is a masterpiece. Darren Aronofski's earlier film Pi is also great. I liked The Butterfly Effect, though it could have been better. It has this wanna-be dark movie feel to it, instead of being the real deal.

The original cut.
And it has become one of my faves ever since too. I just love everything, the story, the characters, the atmosphere...

I prefer the '92 director's cut because the voice overs are a slight distraction from the story's focus. Without the VOs the flow of the story is more intriguing. Same goes for the happy end. It feels like an unneccessary attachment that only serves the purpose to not let a common audience down. Some things are better left off open ended. If Blade Runner is screened anywhere in a 300km-range I have to see it, no matter what version they're showing.

Today I saw Eraserhead, a dream of dark and troubling things. I love anything by Lynch.

Saw two films yesterday:

- Big Fish, fantastic movie directed by Tim Burton!
- Who am I? Jackie Chan film... the Dutch actors were audibly Dutch (I know speaking in foreign languages keep parts of your native language in it, but this was just horrible)

The movie SAW, an awesome mystery/horror/action film. Haven't seen a well-done movie in a while. Sure had a lot of plot twists too.

I saw Lost Highway today, one of my favorites. Manson and his ex-guitarist Twiggy Ramirez had a few seconds as porn stars in this one.
