The topic speaks for itself, share with us what you've seen!

Punisher: War Zone (7/10) - by far the best Punisher film of the bunch (including the Dolph Lundgren one)... just pure entertainment. Nice flow, a bunch of far out action (they use a bunch of splatter sequences) and it doesn't take itself seriously in any way. Recommended to action fans.

The last two movies I've seen worth mentioning are "Dinner Rush" and "Cache" which has both been on tv here in Denmark these last days.

The first one is taking place at a busy restaurant on one evening, meaning its almost filmed in real time (I guess its called). People chatting in the restaurant and its bar, and scenes from the kitchen that is high (-er) paced. You get to know a lot of the people at the different tables, including the manager and a couple of people hazzeling him, the chefs and some others and it concludes in a neat finish that have been built up throughout the movie. (8/10)

The latter is a french film about a couple being harrased by someone who sends them tapes of recordings of their (the couples) front door, and drawings that are'nt all that pleasant. Its very slow paced and demands atention, but I believe its worth it if your not too impatient when watching films. (7/10)

I saw Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler, Russel Brand and Guy Pearce and Role Models with Paul Rudd an Seann William Scott

Both movies are very funny but some people will find Role Models a little bit lame but i don´t care because i had fun watching it.

Here is a Synopsis from IMDB.

Bedtime stories
Marty Bronson (Jonathan Pryce) who raises his son and daughter on his own has to sell his homey motel to clever Barry Nottingham (Richard Griffiths) who promises to make Marty's son manager, when he's grown up and has proven himself. Nottingham pulls down the motel to raise a pricey hotel. Although grown up, Marty's son Skeeter Bronson (Adam Sandler) works as a janitor and general servant, but unlikely as it seems, he still dreams of becoming the manager. When Nottingham announces a brand-new gigantic hotel project, he makes his future son-in-law, base Kendall (Guy Pierce), manager, shattering Skeeter's dream. At the same time Skeeter's sister Wendy (Courtney Cox) has to leave town for a job interview and asks him to alternate looking after her two children Patrick (Jonathan Morgan Heit) and Bobbi (Laura Ann Kesling) with Wendy's responsible-minded colleague Jill (Keri Russell). He doesn't get along with either Jill or the children, but his easy-goingness loosens them all up and once he starts telling his bedtime stories, the children grow fond of him and begin to bring in their ideas about how the stories should go. When the stories turn out to become true in real life, Skeeter tries to manoeuver the stories into a direction which will make his dream come true, too.


Role Models
Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott star in Role Models as Danny and Wheeler, two salesmen who trash a company truck on an energy drink-fueled bender. Upon their arrest, the court gives them a choice: do hard time or spend 150 hours with a mentorship program. After one day with the kids, however, jail doesn't look half bad. Once the center's ex-con director (Jane Lynch) gives them an ultimatum, Danny and Wheeler are forced to tailor their brand of immature wisdom to their charges, Augie (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and Ronnie (Bobb'e J. Thompson). And if they can just make it through probation without getting thrown in jail, the world's worst role models will prove that, sometimes, it takes a village idiot to raise a child.

Hm, I've seen Role Models too and found it okay, but I've heard that the other one should be...not Adam Sandlers best. I cracked allready at the first line in Role Models: Guess what I did last night icon_razz.gif

Yeah, the main site has been quite unstable the last couple of days. Their trackers, however, are working fine, so it's only an issue when searching for torrents. There is another way to search: Point your browser at http://torrentz.com/ and there you can search TPB torrents as well as many others. Good luck! icon_biggrin.gif

When will they post what the Roskilde Cinema will be showing? I still haven't managed to see a film there. I want to make sure I get to see something this summer.

Seen a bunch of movies lately, here's what I remember this early morning.

Twilight (4/10) - While often unintentionally funny, the movie has no face or credibility to it.

Role Models (6/10) - Must admit I found it very funny, but it became too sappy towards the end.

The Day The Earth Stood Still Remake (2/10) - Horrible film that focuses too much on it's (weak) CGI.

Changeling (8/10) - While the last 40 minues dragged, the rest was as near perfection as can be.

The Cottage (7/10) - Great small film with some nice humour and gore going on.

Yes Man (6/10) - Very typical Jim Carrey in both it's weaknesses and strong point.

Tropic Thunder (8/10) - Hilariously well-written in every aspect.

I guess I watch way more movies than you guys.

The Unborn (2/10) - A pile of steaming crap without any heart or soul.

Let The Right One In (9/10) - The exact opposite of The Unborn.

Religulous: 7/10. Saw it because Rammu recommended/mentioned it. For most part of the movie I thought it was really good and neaded, but the end was really bad in my opinion. Afterwards and with some thought, it were'nt quite as good as I thought while seing it - still recomendable though.

40 days and 40 nights: 5,5/10. I dont know...an okay flick I guess.

Kundskabens træ (Tree of knowledge): 9/10. Wow! I have no clue why I have'nt seen that before, but its HIGHLY RECOMENDABLE. Nils Malmros has made this film where we follow a bunch of kids while they are coming of age, from they are 13 to they reach 15. It really brings you back to when you were there - if you are'nt any longer - and simply is fantastic, a must see.

Niels Malmros's movies (Kundskabens Træ etc) are like watching Matador (a Danish tv-series, without a shadow of a doubt the best and most sold tv-series in a single language area ever with over 800,000 dvd's sold in Denmark alone, Denmark having 5.5 million people total) set in a different time. Almost as good at some point but never quite reaching the tv-series in quality.

If you really want a treat, try watch Babette's Feast (Babettes Gæstebud), a Danish Oscar winning movie which in my opinion is among the 10 best movies ever made. All accounted for.

I saw the latest film with Will Smith

the film is fantastic, W S really acts well and the story is really strong. Well directed.

Prepare for an emotional ride

Nils Malmrös is one of the great directors, he can turn seemingly simple autobiographical storylines into the most compelling of films!

And 'let the right one in' is, simply put, the best vampire flick ever made. nothing compares to it, and it really inspired me to solve my dusty old rubick's cube again.

Hmm, the last films i saw was:

The Watchmen (8.5/10 -they really did it!)
Little Big Man (8/10 -Forrest Gump as a western)
Villa Paranoia (7/10 -nice danish film, extremely well acted)
Slumdog Millionaire (8/10 -a little corny, but very original)
Satantango (10/10 -about 7,5 hours of pure cinematic glee)
Inside/L'Interior (7/10 - french splatter at its best)
Tokyo Gore Police (6/10 japanese gore-fest - watch this if you like mutants, guts and japanese culture)

Watchmen (8/10) - Does everything a superhero movie shouldn't do in the exact right way.

The Fountain (6/10) - Aranofsky's worst movie to date still has a lot of beautiful imagery.

Waltz With Bashir (9/10) - I'm tempted to say the most beautiful and profound animation film ever.

King of California (7/10) - I'm a sucker for Evan Rachel Wood:

The film was good but not stunning.

Well if we're talking Miyazaki that's a whole nother ballgame, but yeah.. Takahate ain't much my taste, too flashy, I think. Both Chihiro, My Neighbor Totoro and that new kids-movie are all fantastic though!

Actually, Watchmen is kinda an anti superhero flick. It does the exact opposite of all the regular superhero movies. I have no clue why the reviews are luke warm, here in Denmark it's been given everything from bottom to top of the grading scale. Personally, I think it's great.

Voksne Mennesker(also known as Dark Horse) a danish movie directed by the icelandic Dagur Kari, very very funny, and would fit the roskilde crown excellent. 10/10

Had totally forgot my own thread here... bumping it with the last couple of weeks seen movies:

Avatar (7/10) - Great effects, typical story. Even though it might seem shallow, the world that Cameron has created really dragged me in.

The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus (8/10) - Fantasticly weird Gilliam-flick... just like the good old days. Has a feeling of 80's to it and has so many creative ideas. Highly recommended.

Ginger Snaps (7/10) - Hadn't expected this to be any good, but ended up being what Twilight failed to be... a strange tale of teenagers becomming werewolves including lots of gore, a high pace and great entertainment value.

A Perfect Getaway (5/10) - A twist I guessed only 5 minutes in and that's pretty much what the movie didn't want me to. Not bad, but I've seen too many of these movies, and this isn't one of the best in the genre. Far from it.

Deadline (4/10) - Had it's moments but overall a poorly executed film. Good acting and a very typical story with nothing to it... and as far from scary as can be.

500 Days Of Summer (9/10) - One of the best anti-love films I've ever seen. Really gets you in a unique mood, and is full of loveable characters. Even though the movie's narrative might seem a bit too quirky at times, I recommend this to everyone, and I'm crossing my fingers at the Oscars... if an indie-teen flick should ever win, this should be the one.

Jennifer's Body (4/10) - This decade's "The Craft" fail to deliver pretty much anything. It tries so hard, and ends up an unbelievable mess of a movie.

Paranormal Activity (7/10) - Not scary but still effective in the way it builds up tension, and it's characters are very believable due to strong acting. Kept my interest throughout, and I might give it another chance in the future.

The Final Destination (2/10) - The worst in the series. Repetitive and doesn't have any new ideas. If you've seen the first 3, skip this one - it's horrible in every sense.
