Watched Gone in 60 Seconds (remake) today.... Eleanor.... :love:
Watched Art School Confidential last night (by Daniel Clowes and Terry Zwigoff, the team that made Ghost World).
Funny stuff, especially since I could relate to it. Others might not care for it so much.

Watched Higher Learning yesterday, great flick, love that movie.
Watched Dazed and Confused today
On a Steven Seagal kick. lol Watched Above the Law last night and going to take down Hard to Kill tonight. After that it is Out for Justice and Under Siege (easily the best one) followed by On Deadly Ground, then a viewing of Fire Down Below.
Out for Justice rocks - my fave Segal movie !!! :)
I didn't really care for Flags of Our Fathers. I've never had as much interest in the Pacific theater as I did for the European one though. I've also seen the History Channel doc on the Iwo Jima flag raising so the film didn't really break new ground for me.
I thought Apocalypto was pretty good. Who'da thunk anyone would make a movie about the Maya?! I'm not sure why they included the arrival of the first Europeans, since the Mayan Empire is considered a pre-Columbian (as in Christopher Columbus) civilization. It had pretty much collapsed several hundred years before the first Spanish conquerors set foot in the Americas.
1408 - was ok, cool storyline. Samuel Jackson was under-utilized. John Cusack is a pretty good actor.
Sands of Iwo Jima - much better than Flags of our Fathers. Really cool to get a perspective from the other side. Really highlights the different outlook on warfare and dying the Japanese had. Many wasted lives due to suicide.
Night at the Museum - was ok, better than I thought it would be.
