Trading places ~ On abit of an Eddie Murphy thing at the moment, this is generally one of my favourites, abit cheesy in places but overall the comedy of the two main characters works really well.

Agreed. What a huge disappointment after Pi and Requiem for a Dream.

10/10, although I don't think real Angelina would look so good nowadays, what with her starving herself and all.

It will have to do. It's not like she's knocking on my door.

Nice post blessingx, I've only seen and enjoyed the Brando version, you got me interested in these different versions of the Mutiny on the Bounty.

Franz Kafka's "The Trial" (1993) with Kyle Maclachlan as Josef K.

I think the movie is faithful to the main themes in the book and the dystopia which Kafka depicts are applicable in today's world. I would give it a 7/10.

There is also an older filming of this book by Orson Welles.

It's an interesting example where three great films speak either to purity, liberty, individualism, social structure or law and order. It's not always overt, but there definitely worthly of a triple feature weekend.

It should also be noted, you can probably safely skip '89s Mutant on the Bounty.

Since Casablanca was mentioned earlier, another great triple feature is it, Sydney Pollack and Robert Redfords Havanna and Pamela Andersons action/sci-fi Barb Wire (worlds greatest review) which all came from the Casablanca script. The Third Man can also be added as a film that could only be made after it, and is superior in my book.

Ratatouille - 7.5/10. I love Pixar, but this movie, while very entertaining, just doesn't have the magic that Toy Story or Monsters Inc. had.

It is a statement to the technology and people at Pixar that the computer animation has become secondary to the story. That fact has made me focus on the story more and more, and while the story was good, it wasn't great IMO.

So you thought Monsters, Inc. had a better story?
