I don't pirate movies! I just watch them. :wink: I don't get them too often, though. I'm a DVD buyer/renter, but I love going to the theaters.

I usually don't pirate either. I'll download every once in a while, usually when I'm too embarressed to purchase a ticket (Catwoman) or even rent it, or don't want to support the filmmaker (Fahrenheit 9/11).

Is the Director's Cut any good? I don't own the theatrical version and I'm considering going ahead and buying the Director's Cut.

Buy the Theatrical Version and rent the Director's Cut.

What we get in the DC is 3/4's of a superhero movie, and a quarter of a murder mystery/courtroom drama. The ladder quarter isn't needed at all. It's basically 5 or so minutes of Coolio being a suspect in a murder case, and 20 minutes of scenes talking about the case.

The other 8 minutes or so come in the beginning, with more of a setup between Matt and his father, and towards the end with some extra shots here and there. For instance, we get a shot of Kingpin in jail. And the scene with Bullseye that was intercut during the credits (The one where he hits a fly up against a wall with a syringe) is now cut within the film.

Also, it says on the back of the DVD Box that the film is Rated R for violence and language. I have also read a couple of reviews saying that the film is bloddier. I just didn't see it. As for the language, there are a couple of songs that feature the word "Motherfucker", but could've (And were) been cut out of the film.

This to me is still a PG-13 film that is 33 mintues longer and about 28 of those minutes aren't needed. The 100 minute version flows much better. The Director's Cut isn't bad (More Jon Favreau is a plus) it's just too long.

Or to put it another way, if you are a fan of the comic book (Which I am not. I have never read it.) this version is probably the way to go.

Thanks. I wasn't a huge fan of the theatrical release, but thought the Director's Cut might be interesting. I might wait then.

Infernal Affairs II - B+

A great sequel to an even better original. This belongs to the best foreign movies I have seen in recent times. I can just hope that the third part is just as good. The music in the movie is great, probably the best thing about the whole flick. The acting is good, just like in the original. An interesting storyline with just enough action to keep one entertained throughout is the trademark of this series. I can only recommend it to anyone.

Touching the Void - B/B+

It is hard for me to grade this movie as I usually don't watch documentaries/semi-documentaries often. This one was really well done, though. De facto, it wasn't a pure documentary, but I liked that aspect about it. The young actors who porttrayed the both climbers were great in their roles. The whole flick was able to convey the grippiness of the situation the main protagnist was in very well.You REALLY felt with him. Furthermore, the landscape shots were beautiful.

What I did not like so much was the fact that towards the end of the movie it seemed a bit rushed. Also somehow, I wasn't very pleased by the fact that I could never decide if it wanted to be a film or a documentary.

Having said that, I want to say that it was one of the better movies I saw this year and I hope to see it nominated for Best Documentary.

So I've heard. Worth a look at least. For as many films as I got and that price, can't be too horrible, can it?

It's not really scary, if that's what you are expecting. Just kind of a "stupid-fun" kinda flick.

Well, I have seen worse, but this one is just so disappointing. They could have done much more with that premise. The film actually starts off really well, especially in its first 5 minutes. But from then on it just goes downhill :(

Just bought Collateral and Godzilla on DVD. Hey, Godzilla was only $5.50, so I thought, "what the hell, I'll buy it". :-)
