I think this movie is very underrated, Primer is a smart and original film about time travel. THis is one of those movies that gets better the more times you watch it because it's hard to absorb everything in one sitting. Outstanding movie, especially considering how low-budget it was.
Sweet ****ing christ, I LOVED this. So violent and funny. Blu.-Ray purchase for sure.
Really violent and ****ed up. Liked it quite a bit. Wonder if it will ever get released out here...
Over the weekend:
Liked this quite a bit. The cinematography was impressive as hell, especially during the chase scene in the sewers.
Believe it or not, I'd never seen this before. Thought it had it's moments, and I can appreciate the effect it's had, but I didn't care that much for it. The little girl was the best part.
I bought this at a Hollywood Video that was going out of business because I like the movie Tampopo by the same director and it had quotes all over it from Leonard Maltin, The NY Times and stuff saying how great it was. I thought it was ok. Had some funny bits and an interesting story that kept my attention, but wasn't as good as I'd been hoping and expecting.

AICN LEGENDS: Capone talks IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT, ROLLERBALL, MALCOLM X, and more with director Norman Jewison!!!
Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.
Amazingly powerful film. One of the best portrayals of deep-rooted hatred between people in the Middle East. This movie will stay with you long after you've watched it.
Been hearing a lot of good things about this one. The director just got a high-profile gig(can't remember what it was, sorry) based on just how good this movie is.

Enjoyable and pretty funny at times, but I can see why the reviews were a little disappointing. Certainly nowhere near as awesome as I would have expected from these two if I hadn't had my expectations already tempered.
Extra points for a lot of cool cameos.
Solid prison escape movie with a good cast. Nothing special, but a good watch.
"Stray Cat Rock: Machine Animal". One of the 5 Stray Cat Rock movies, the series that made Meiko Kaji a star in Japan in the 70's. Relatively enjoyable, but nothing special. For all the badass poses you get to see Meiko Kaji do in all the press materials for this movie, she does very little badass stuff in the movie itself. So it was disappointing in that respect.
This movie is good if you want to be bored out of your mind with the slowest ****ing motorcycle chase in asian cinema that literally lasts for 10 mins.
