Among this year's releases State of Play can pass off as a murder mystery. You might like Chris Nolan's Insomnia starring Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hillary Swank, although the identity of the killer is not kept a secret.

Try Mulholland Drive or Memento. These don't exactly fit the genre of murder mysteries though. But they do have an element of surprise.
Mulholland Drive is good but I found Lost Highway (also directed by David Lynch) even better. Good performances by Patricia Arquette and Bill Pullman......great soundtrack too.

I watched a movie called "Surveillance" recently which is a serial killer / murder mystery/ thriller. It's a pretty good movie directed by Jennifer Lynch (David Lynch's daughter).

I reckon i am back in action of movie watching. Been busy last month and could not watch any.

How is the movie " Munich". I got that delivered today?

A small request as my queue has dwindled, can someone make a list of good suspense filled movies ( it should be edge of the seat thriller types) so i can refill my queue? i already added Mullohand Drive to the queue

Oh Munich is brilliant, you will love it

May be it would be a good idea to read the incident on which the movie is based, should help you in understanding the move better

Btw I have always noticed that you ask for opinion after it gets delivered to you, thats quite strange as most would ask before ordering one even if on rent

Amazing movie. You can't go wrong with this one. And yes like Techno suggested read about what its based on before watching the movie. But then i am sure you already know what its based on, it was quite an event in world history.

I think History Channel or Discovery Channel i am not sure which one ran a very good episode on the event itself and the operation after that on which this movie is based..

Well, i have read a book on that story, some thriller dont remember the name. It was a superb read so i am aware about the story.

With regards to asking before, i just browse the bigflix website and add just on the short excerpt that's outlined there and cover image.

I wish i had patience to ask before i add. What to do, i am like that

Step Up 2 - The Streets

Those who enjoy street dancing and hip hop would love the soundtrack of this movie, as well as the dance moves on offer. That aside, this is a run-of-the-mill kinda movie of a girl's rebellion against rules, and her interest towards street dancing.

Decent time pass.

Done with the Saw series. Finished Saw 5 day before yday.
@Mobike008, after watching Saw 5, i can safely say that if you havent seen the previous parts, then Saw 5 may require a couple of repeats to see where the story is going. But then, if you watch all the other parts first, Saw V will look like a complete waste of time. And heaven help me, Saw VI is due to release on October 23rd this year!

Also saw District 9. I have to agree that it is by far one of THE best sci-fi movies. What struck me the most about this movie was that half way through the movie, i realised that i was starting to believe that all this can possibly happen, or might have already happened! If a sci-fi movie can give you that type of feeling, then it has to be one helluva nice movie. Oh and i can bet anything that there will be atleast one sequel, and it will probably be called District 10!

EDIT: And with that, i am done with contemporary cinema. Now back to Ingmar Bergman. Tonight, it will be Persona.

It is more of a drama based on real life events. Techno's link will give the picture of what exactly happened.

The performances in this movie are outstanding and very real. Like others commented, it is a must watch. In fact, buy one for the collection.

I saw this movie last night, Sideways. Its about these two friends Miles (Paul Giamatti - a brilliant actor, under-rated like Hoffman) & Jack (Thomas Haden Church - Remember him as Sandman from Spidey 3). Miles is a failer writer working as a teacher & Jack is a failed TV actor. They've nearly reached middle age who have nothing but disappointment in their lives. They embark on a road trip to wine country California a week before Jack gets married. Jack in the extrovert who wants to live it up to the fullest before he gets hooked in a week. There they do a lot of introspection with, of course, a lot of wine drinking & also meet a couple of women. Really nice movie.

My rating: 4.5/5

Yeah, I saw that too. The choreography is amazing. I loved the last dance sequence (the one in the rain). The soundtrack was awesome too. I am looking for the OST album for this one.
