Windows 7: Last Movie Watched

Last Movie Watched

Name the last movie you watched - new or old; and give it a score.

Four Lions 8.5/10.0
Four Lions (2010) - IMDb

A black satire about 4 homegrown, incompetent wannabe Jihadist's. It's a clever film that works on a few levels. On the surface, the situation and characters are hilarious.

But look beyond the comedic exaggeration and you'll find a moving drama that encapsulates the ultimate futility of enforcing an ideology.

It's a sensitive topic that could have been mangled, but it's neither preachy or too farcical. There are messages being delivered, but they are delivered well.

It's the first movie I've watched twice in a row for untold years. Highly recommended.

Windows 8 Release Preview x64
 
 

Alien 3. Three out of four stars, but the biased science-fiction fan part of my brain would probably give it a full four.

I need to buy Alien Resurrection now ... haven't seen that one yet.

Cloverfield.

I give it a 9 out of 10.

Plot: Some NYC twenty-somethings throw a going-away party for a friend. Then some unusual things happen. Definitely worth seeing.

Man On Fire

8 of 10

Somewhat of a different style, but between the great Denzel Washington, and the amazing Dakota Fanning, you can't go wrong. A Guy

The Pianist (2002) - IMDb
IMDb rated 8 ( I rate it a 10)

OMG!!! What a powerfully tragic story about families trying to survive the Nazis and the Warsaw Ghetto (in Poland) at the beginning of World War II.

Could you explain it to me? Here is one theory regarding what the Wizard of OZ is about:

"... an allegory of the late 19th-century bimetallism debate regarding monetary policy. At the beginning of the novel, Dorothy is swept from her farm to Oz by a cyclone, which was frequently compared to the Free Silver movement in Baum's time. The Yellow Brick Road represents the gold standard and the Silver Shoes which enable Dorothy to travel more comfortably symbolizes the Populist Party's desire to construct a bimetallic standard of both gold and silver in place of the gold standard. She learns that to return home, she must reach the Emerald City, Oz's political center, to speak to the Wizard, representing the President of the United States. While journeying to the Emerald City, she encounters a scarecrow, who represents a farmer; a woodman made of tin, who represents a worker dehumanized by industrialization; and a cowardly lion, who represents William Jennings Bryan, a prominent leader of the silverite movement. The villains of the story, the Wicked Witch of the West and the Wicked Witch of the East, represent the wealthy railroad and oil barons of the American West and the financial and banking interests of the eastern U.S. respectively. Both these groups opposed Populist efforts to move the U.S. to a bimetallic monetary standard since this would have devalued the dollar and made investments less valuable. Workers and poor farmers supported the move away from the gold standard as this would have lessened their crushing debt burdens. The Populist party sought to build a coalition of southern and midwestern tenant farmers and northern industrial workers. These groups are represented in the book by the Good Witches of the North and South. "Oz" is the abbreviated form of ounce, a standard measure of gold."

Oh jeez! And here I thought the trip to Oz was just a dream that Dorothy was having. . .
