Grizzly Man

That guy was a little nuts. No surprise he wound up getting devoured by a grizzly bear.
The sad thing was he convinced that woman to go out there with him, twice, and she got eaten because of his craziness.

Very well done.
See this movie!

Let the battle of the two "Now Playing - The Movie Version" threads commence. I vote for the first one.

Watched Nobody Knows on Saturday. Beautifully acted by kids who were so natural on screen that you'd think they didn't know they were being filmed. The 12-year old has a career ahead of him, but the one that really stunned me was the 5-year old boy. He wasn't on screen as much, but he was so comfortable in his own skin. It was the antithesis of a performance like that little shit from Jerry Maguire.

Had 2046 from Netflix for a week, and couldn't muster enough desire to even give it a chance. Just sent it back so I can get Thumbsucker and Aristocrats earlier.

Does anyone know if cable TV movies count for the movie poll? If so, was The Life and Death of Peter Sellers in 2005? That might make my list. Masterfully directed and acted picture. Can't believe that wasn't a feature film.

Balseros---this movie follows around ten different cubans whom travel by homemade rafts to Miami. Their struggle as immigrants is documented from 1994 to 2004. An extremely well made documentary. Attached File  balseros_off.jpg   59.03K   121 downloads

Don't know if it qualifies on the list, but we all had some discussion about this movie pre-crash. I believe it would have worked better as a 2-part miniseries. Rush was astounding and brave to take on the many personas. There's quite a bit of material on the DVD's deleted scenes that indicates it could have been a very different movie.

Disney's Cinderella. Definitely a step down from the level of storytelling in Snow White or Bambi, especially in it's reliance on cute anamorphic animals who wear clothes & talk. I wonder how many kids were bitten by mice after trying to dress them in doll's clothes & teach them to talk?

Heehee. The DVD docs discuss how Disney was going for broke in getting this one made, due to the box office failure of Pinochio and Fantasia. It's no wonder he decided to stick with tried and true formulas that Snow White proved would be successful. I find it a little more enjoyable than Sleeping Beauty--twice as weak in the storytelling, though elegantly drawn.

Was released in Europe in 2004. HBO helped pay for it, they screeened it.
Nice bowl of Crunchy Nut you got here, pretty expensive as I recall.

Saw this a couple weeks ago, one week after seeing Bambi. Very big dropoff. This was the point that Walt started making movies for kids, instead of movies for everyone

You know, the guy who wrote that used to be a promising filmmaker. Then he made that crappy Pacino flick and now this.

I kinda liked it. Not drop dead loved it, but it was a decent waste of an hour and half. The ending was pretty retarded, I must say.
