    I'm slowly going through a list of well received/reviewed movies that I have never seen. With my grandmother about to pass, this one was a little harder for me to watch right now then it would have been but I loved it.

    Watched this for the second time. The Skin I Live In is a masterpiece, pure and simple. Almodovar is one of the most brilliant storytellers, and the way he weaves this tale together is pretty much flawless. I picked up on quite a few things that had completely passed me by the first time I watched it. Probably my favorite Almodovar film to date.

    This nice little Frenchie puts a pretty unique twist on the typical kidnapping genre. The victim is as you might expect: an ultra-wealthy head of a large and powerful firm with celebrity type status. Given his position and with a wife and kids there's naturally plenty of concern, fear, and hand-wringing over his safe return. BUT, as the days and weeks pass, the deepening investigation brings more and more unsavory details about the victim's habits and excesses to the surface creating an interesting mix of sympathy and disdain by the time the climax arrives.

    I'll leave it at that in case anybody wants to watch for themselves. The action scenes are few and far between, but there's plenty of sustained tension. A little slow in places, but recommended nonetheless.

    I've skipped over this so many times and not really sure why, especially since I like Almodovar. But you've sold me and I'll give it a spin soon.

    I second The Skin I live In. It's a long trip...and I do mean trip, but one worth taking. I gotta watch Up...and Ratatoille(sorry, you spell it)...also thoughts and prayers Lagwagon.

    In other news, Thanks to pay cable my 4th consisted of



    break for laundromat, then



    Sorry, but that is too kickass and made my holiday viewing a no brainer.



    this was on last night. I love the cast. Before you complain about Mohr or the kid from ET or the Boondock Saint that wasn't Norman 'Darryl' Reedus...Dennis Leary is awesome in this. As is Walken. Brad Garrett as one half of a mulletheaded goomba team is pretty fun too. I don't know what it is about Jeremy Sisto, ever since Six Feet Under, if he's in something I will probably watch it. Anyway, it's a good little minor flick.

    I remember liking Suicide Kings when it came out, but that's about all I remember. Crazy Stupid Love is on HBO lately so I can see if it is terrible if I want. Steve Carrell was great in Dan In Real Life, which was a surprisingly good movie - a romantic comedy that takes place in the actual real world, so I would have thought he would be decent in Crazy Stupid Love.

    The kid from ET gotta eat.

    I thought so, just my opinion though.

    I also chuckled when I saw that someone named LetTigerIn liked my post about The Skin I Live In. (anyone who's seen the movie will know why)



    This movie was pretty fun, great cast. Christopher Lloyd and Treat Williams have pretty awesome characters.



    Also saw a movie with the aforementioned Sisto. Unknown is another movie with a solid cast, pretty intriguing plot and it's fun to watch the whole story unfold.
