I totally agree! Let me know if you are able to get your hands on the soundtrack for the movie.

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

Saw this a couple of years ago and this is one of my favorite chick flicks. Plus it has Virginia Madsen whose acting I absolutely adore.

Beautiful movie and tells the watcher a lot about wine tasting and wine culture.

Really good! I had posted the review a few pages back.
A splendid performance from Morgan Freeman.

I was completely overwhelmed by this Rodriguez/Tarantino collaboration. The movie has three parallel stories with intersecting time lines and sets of characters. It's full of extremely violent scenes (shot mostly in B/W) and one can have some guilty pleasure of enjoying them. The narrative style is good too.

Saw " Munich" what a lovely movie. It had everything that i love, beautiful european locales, gripping storyline, fabulous acting and dark aura to the entire movie.

However, the DVD was not good in portions so couldnt enjoy it completely. I agree this should go into the collection

4.5/5

Robert and Qentin is a deadly and crazy combination as also seen in From Dusk to Dawn.

You should check out Mickey Rourke as Marv. This movie is actually directed by Frank Miller, based on his graphic comic books. Its one of the best comic book movies made.

The movie is actually directed by three of them - Miller, Rodriguez and Tarantino. Tarantino is credited as a guest director.

After watching three movies directed by Richard Linklater recently, i was intrigued to say the least with his work specially the latter two. The three movies i saw & liked immensely:
1. School of Rock (2003)
2. Before Sunrise (1995)
3. Before Sunset (2004)

... and will watch soon Fast Food Nation (2006) & A Scanner Darkly (2006).

I have managed to source three more of his earlier movies from a budding director associate of mine who studies movies as part of his creative research & inspiration. He was a 3rd or 4th A.D. for Dharma Productions' Wake Up Sid. Very difficult for them to part with DVD's as they get them max for a week, i'm am lucky i guess. I have to finish seeing them by Monday morning.
