    lol I felt exactly the same when I saw it again for the first time since forever a few months ago.

    How to lose friends and alienate people. Simon Pegg is comedy gold.

    I love Simon Pegg! But I heard bad things about that movie... is it worth seeing if I pretty much enjoy everything he has been in?

    saber, it's nothing great but i think you'll still enjoy it. Pegg is hilarious in it and there are a number of really laugh out loud moments. That said, it has the basic rom-com plot that all these types of movies have.

    just saw "you kill me", awesome dark comedy about an alcoholic assassin and "eagle eye" which did the trick as your basic action-suspense entertainer.

    Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Good fun, but it seems that Woody Allen's era of greatness is past. It was great being able to recognise most of the streets that the characters walk through :)

    Appaloosa, a nice classic western with Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen.

    Waltz with Bashir That movie is awesome! The first animated documentary I watch. It's an Israeli film about ex soldiers who participated in the 80s Lebanon war. They try to reminder the horror they had to witness. It's surprisingly anti-war

    The animation is top notch with very little textures and the colours have an overall dark tone. There's always an high contrast which gives an unusual, pleasant feels to it. The shadows and dark zones are also omnipresent which are ironically given more details compared to the generally texture-less characters. It somehow reminded me of Flash animation.

    The plot is intriguing and it sometimes feels like a fiction movie, but there's also a lot of «interviews» by real people. An interesting fact is not all characters condemns the war in the film, and with the more narrative-driven plot (which is unusual for a documentary) makes the film somewhat ambiguous or at least makes you think.

    However the fact that's in Hebrew with subtitles might turn off some people, but meh if you don't care this film's awesome.

    Deathlands. A low-budget movie in a post apocalyptic setting with humans, half-mutants and mutants. Lots of potential in this one, but it is all lost. A mediocre movie at best, at least it has Jenya Lano, so you have something to watch at... Apparently this is based on a series of novels, I definitely have to look into them at some point.

    Lethal Weapon 2 director's cut. I've seen the original a while back but I didn't really notice a difference.

    Batman Begins for the first time. I think I might like it more than the Dark Knight, infact I'm quite sure I do.

    Never back down. Predictable, but enjoyable. Death Race which was kind of the same but less so.

    Taken. AWESOME movie. You always hear people describing movies as "non-stop action" but this is the first one, imo, that actually delivers.
