The Pianist

A film that has a tremendous impact on you. It's the story of a great Polish pianist, who can be considered a celebrity of the 30's in his country. He's of Jewish ancestry and the story envelops the second world war and how he tries to survive it.
Like other great war films, it is packed with sobering emotions, but it never bothers you, it's just an integral part of what Wladyslaw Szpilman, the pianist, must have gone through. Adrien Brody is supremely casted as this kind-hearted artist. He portrayed the feeling of hopelessness, being alone, being hated to perfection, gradually dragging you down his stuggle with him. A must-see.

Un Prophète

Set largely within prison walls, the film details the prison career of Malik el Djebena (Tahar Rahim), a 19-year-old man of North African origin but estranged from the Muslim community. Sentenced to six years for what appears to be violence against police (albeit denied by Malik), he is chosen by Cesar Luciani (Niels Arestrup), feared kingpin of the prisons reigning Corsican gang, to kill a prisoner named Reyeb (Hichem Yacoubi) who had initially offers Malik drugs in exchange for sex. Reyeb is in prison awaiting testifying against the mob. Malik commits the bloody murder, and thanks to Luciani's near-total control of the prisons internal workings - gets off scot-free. This makes him a lieutenant in the prisons Corsican gang, initially entrusted only with menial duties and disparaged as an Arab outsider.

Haunted by visions of a ghostly Reyeb, and determined to get on, the illiterate Malik not only learns to read, but teaches himself Corsican, surreptitiously learning the ins and outs of Luciani's business. Another inmate, Ryad (Adel Bencherif), becomes Malik's friend, later his ally on the outside. When Luciani arranges periods of leave for Malik, entrusting him with various criminal missions, Malik takes the opportunity to do some business of his own, setting up a drugs trade with Ryad's aid. Life gets increasingly dangerous for Malik, both inside and outside prison walls, but he seems partly through Reyeb's benign, unearthly influence - to lead a charmed life. Powers of prophecy are attributed to him after surviving a bizarre car crash an incident presaged in an enigmatic fantasy sequence.

Superbowl Trailer

Lame Old Teaser Trailer

Imdb description
Water. Earth. Fire. Air. In the old days, there was peace between the four nations of the world. The Avatar -- Master of all four elements -- kept peace between the the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. Only the Avatar has the ability to Bend (manipulate) all four elements, but one day, he Vanished. Then the Fire Nation attacked, forcing a war on the other three nations for one hundred years. Now, for the good of the world, it's up to 12-year-old Aang (Noah Ringer), the new Avatar, to return peace and balance by putting an end to the war and mastering all four elements. Aang must accept his destiny by stopping the Fire Nation's war and defeating the Fire Lord for good.

It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson's Greek mythology texts and into his life. And they're not happy: Zeus' lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy's mother. As Percy finds himself caught between angry and battling gods, he and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy's mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Seriously,it was one of the best films,i've EVER watched!
Wonderfully well written story,and the whole movie is filled with good jokes,ensuring chuckles all the way through.
And no wonder,rated rightly by rotten tomatoes a 98%,a remarkable flick.
(and definitely not ONLY for kids)

P.S You'll definitely cry during the movie.

I watched two films last night: first my friends and I watched Robin Hood in the cinema, which I recently only rarely visit because of the ridiculous prices. 9 euros for a film, when it's crisis, considering it was only 6 two years ago and nothing in the cinemas has improved is ridiculous.
Later that evening I watched 'Shutter Island', another masterpiece of Martin Scorsese.

But enough of my rants, let's talk films: Robin Hood, the English folklore hero, has always been portrayed as an unrealistic hero with superhuman abilities. Or at least in the films I've seen. Not any more: Riddley Scott made a film that tells us the tale of Robin Longstride (an excellent Russell Crowe), an archer of the army of Richard the Lionheart, returning from crusading mischief and failure to recapture Jerusalem.

Pillaging, they seek a way back to England, but during their last siege of a French castle, a crossbow bolt kills Lionheart. The legendary king is portrayed here not as the über-chivalrous idol, but as a fearless and beloved commander, who wasn't chivalrous in the fairytale way, but who was a fair ruler his people loved.
Archer Longstride and his mates however, when they hear the king died, flee the battle hoping to return to their homeland before the entire army does and end up in a forest near the French coast. In that same forest, French mercenaries ambush a party of English knights who had the task of returning the royal crown to London. The French kill them all, only to be killed shortly afterwards by Robin and his men. The leader of the French, Godfrey, a treasonous Englishman hired by King Philips of France, manages to escape the scene though. He was sent to kill Lionheart by Philips, oblivious of the fact he had already died in battle.

This doesn't dampen the spirits of Robin and his men, because they plan to rob the knights of their armour and possessions to return to England as wealthy men. The final words of one of the dying knights as he spoke to Robin though, were that he would have his sword returned to his father in Nottingham. The dying man is none other than Sir Robin Loxley, son of Sir Walter Loxley. Robin Longstride honours his request and once he has arrived in London, pretending to be the knight Robin Loxley himself, rides to Nottingham.

From thereon, the story unfolds into a story of true heroics: Robin and his men make Nottingham, one of the villages terrorised by Godfrey and his French tax collecting mercenaries, a better place. The newly crowned king John finds out his 'friend' Godfrey is a traitor and has to prepare for war. And I just realise I should stop telling the whole story, because some of you may still want to see this film

In the end, the whole film is about how Robin Longstride became the legend Robin Hood, much like 'Batman Begins' tells the story of how Batman came to be. I expected a mediocre but relaxing epic film, but it turned out to be better than that. It's not quite as great as 'Gladiator', but it's not as light-weight as 'Kingdom of Heaven' either. I give it an 7.5/10: a very entertaining film with some good acting and only a few somewhat far-fetched flaws Ridley Scott has a knack for.

Afterwards, I also watched Shutter Island on my computer (yeah, I'm one of the bad guys downloading and sharing films with my mates), and I was very impressed. Not hugely impressed, but I didn't expect it to be this dark and thrilling.

The story begins in 1954 when Marshall Daniels (another great performance from Leonardo DiCaprio) and his partner Chuck (Mark Ruffalo) coast towards 'shutter island' to investigate a case of an escaped patient. Shutter island is no resort for rich patients treated by the best doctors, nor is it an isle for lepers. It's an island where the very worst cases of the insane go, or as Daniels calls them, the 'criminally insane'.
As the film progresses, it becomes clear the psychiatrists (Ben Kingsley and Max von Sydow dwell between mysterious, macabre and compassionate doctors) don't seem very honest or cooperative with Daniels, appearing to be lying to him and manipulating the other patients. Daniels gradually grows more weary and wants to leave the island, but a heavy storm prevents ships from sailing out, so he's stuck for the time being. The longer he stays in the institution, the more he begins to get flashbacks from his past, as a soldier uncovering the horrid events that were going on in the concentration camp Dachau in WWII. His deceased wife also spooks in his mind, who keeps telling him to get off the island, because it will be the end of him.

Again, I force myself to stop typing, because from here the story gets interesting, and sadly enough for some reason (I must've watched too many films) I completely predicted the outcome. The remaining hour and a bit slowly confirmed what I suspected, albeit in a very thrilling and Hitchcock-like manner which still often surprised me and still always grasped my attention, despite the fact that my initial thoughts were all confirmed.
It is a very good thriller, a bit of a masterpiece really. 8.5/10

Shutter island is pretty genious, enjoyed that one when I watched it a while back. Robin hood is alright too

I believe Russell Crowe gave up smoking during the making of Robin Hood, which he has tried to do many times before. He nearly managed it during Master and Commander. Apparently he was successful this time
