August 2009 Movies

Progress! Managed to actually see 2 movies on my list last month: Quantum of Solace and Children of Men. QoS was ridiculous. I still couldn't tell you what the hell happened in that movie. I watched Goldfinger on the flight back from LA last week. Now that was a Bond movie. I loved the new Casino Royale despite the switch from baccarat to poker, but QoS was an awful misfire. CoM was very good, but I think it had been built up a bit much as the next Blade Runner (or equivalent Sci-Fi cult flick). Still a fine movie, but not much repeat viewing value. So here's my top 10 or so to watch. As always, the starred ones I've got on DVD or Blu Ray yet still haven't found the time to watch.

1. Inglorious Basterds
2. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince IMAX
3. The Fall*
4. Night at the Museum 2 IMAX
5. Moon
6. The Brothers Bloom
7. Coraline
8. Terminator: Salvation
9. Public Enemies
10. The Hangover
11. Watchmen: The Ultimate Collector's Edition
