Both great movies.

..... until the end.
What the hell was with that? The ending could have been better. It was sort of just "cut and dry".
Thanks for the suggestion, though.
Layer cake... I really liked it. Too bad about the ending though.
That reminds me of The Departed. One of my favorites.

Would have liked it if he walked away at the end too, but thought it was very well done.
Very true. I thought so too, but it was shocking.
I also thought Saving Private Ryan was pretty good. I'm a big fan of war movies. Band of Brothers is another of my favorites.
I'll throw these in if anyone is interested in stretching their second language skills and seeing something a little different than the typical Hollywood fare. (All have subtitles and I found them all at the library.)
- Le Placard (hilarious)
- La Grande Séduction
- Les Aimants
- Aurore (get the 2005 version)
Watched Girl, Interrupted tonight.
Interesting movie, but it was a bit weird. 6/10.
A good local Canadian movie for you horror fans.
Sort of in the vein of Paranormal Activity.
We Bought a Zoo. - pretty decent. The father/son storyline was not that well executed and some parts of the movie were a bit long.... gratuitous use of classic rock to pep up various parts of the movie helped.... (nothing much happening?...here's some Neil Young!)
Scarlett Johansen was fairly believable as a zookeeper.... I'm sure most don't look that good. There were some cool animals in it.
Ramona and Beezus was good

The Usual suspects
The most recent Star Trek
Night at the Roxbury
As far as TV series
Boston Legal, glad they cut it when they did, the wrap up half of the last season was a little weak.
Dead like me, which was cancelled far too early.(and the follow up movie sucked)
