    you're not a true fan of the series if you really believe that.

    Matrix Revolutions was terrible. they could have stopped after Reloaded and been much better off.

    I see them as one movie a bit like God, with the father and the son and the holy spirit in one God.
    God is better than Jesus and Jesus is better than the spirit, it's the same with The Matrix trilogy.
    Don't be dissin' the gospel :gonk:

    There's probably some rogue Javascript that got inserted on the end of a file (index.[whatever], probably) via a security hole in your site's setup. Delete that and you'll be okay for now.

    They should've made another one. They're all still in the matrix.

    The Hurt Locker - 9.5/10

    Great movie about the Iraq war. Very tense and eye opening. Only real flaw is that its a bit slow at times.

    Fast & Furious. -72/10

    You would think that somebody making a movie about cars would actually hire a technical adviser that knew something about cars, or at the very least, somebody that knows that NOS (Nitrous oxide) is not flammable.

    Sound of thunder: 6.5/10

    A fourth matrix movie ? Who knows. I got a feeling they will.

    Funny coincidence though, caught "the matrix" yesterday on Itv. Just couldn't resist watching it. Can't say that about the sequels, regretably :-/

    Home. Not to be confused with the recent Arthus-Bertrand movie. A family is faced with the highway that's been in front of their home for a decade, but never used before, being put into operation. Torn between refusing to adapt the new situation, and trying to find a way to live with it, the family quickly disintegrates. An interesting take on the influence of the changing world on our lives that could have better. 7/10

    Faces. Brilliant drama focusing on characters alone, documenting the attempt of a husband and a wife to escape their stagnant, detached roles by finding new, younger partners - and their failure to do so. Great style, particularly the intense close-ups of the people's faces that lend the movie its name, and impressive performances by the cast. 9/10

    The Diary of Anne Frank. Film version from 1959. There's two sides to this one: the great moments of suspense, even to those who have read the diary (and I love it dearly), and the harrowing and haunting scenes that send a shiver down your spine (particularly the hope and rejoicing of the inhabitants of the Achterhuis on D-Day and the opening scene, when the sole survivor Otto Frank returns after the war) on the one hand and the liberties the film takes in the portrayal of the characters on the other hand. Particularly the way Anne Frank is shown bugged me, as she often comes across much more as a bitch than the diary suggests, and her exceptional brightness and (especially initial, but never really disappearing) cheeriness isn't conveyed very well. 7/10

    The Diary of Anne Frank. The recent BBC mini-series. This version is a little more targeted at the broader audience of today. That is to say, especially in the beginning it relies on a lot of exposition in an effort to outline the situation of 1942 to those viewers who should be, but aren't, familiar with it. In a way, it sometimes seems like an educational piece. Anne Frank herself is portrayed closer along the lines of the diary here (especially her humour), which is definitely a good thing. A detail that bothered me a little is how the actors pronounced all the Dutch and German names in English (and with a British accent) - so much for an attempt to create a believable atmosphere. All in all, I preferred this film version though, mostly for its greater adherence to the source where it's needed (i.e. the character of Anne Frank) and its attempt to break away from it a little and try to closer reflect reality where it seemed sensible - that is, in the portrayal of Alfred Dussel. 8/10

    Casablanca: 10/10

    A very, very old movie (from 1942) but entertaining to the last minute. Casablanca is the movie that has got the most quotes listed in the AFI (best movie quots of all time) and for a reason: the script is simply awesome.

    :lol:

    Just the result of a quick google search... food for thought:

    Short Lesson: How Nitrous Oxide makes a car go faster. Nitrous Oxide, N20, is NOT flammable by itself. At high temperatures(in excess of 500 degrees F), it breaks down into it's two components. 2 N2O become 2 N2 and 1 O2. N2O is 38% oxygen by weight. Normal atmosphere(the stuff you're breathing *right now*, and the stuff that goes into your car engine too) is about 78% Nitrogen(N2) and about 21% Oxygen(O2). So when the Nitrous breaks down, it adds a greater concentration of oxygen than is present in normal air. Extra fuel must simultaneously be added, and the extra oxygen is used to provide the bigger bang. Same thing a turbo or supercharger does, getting more oxygen in the cylinder so you can burn more gas. Nitrous is also more dense than normal air, adding even more oxygen to the equation. In addition, when nitrous converts into a gas from a liquid when it is injected, it cools down VERY rapidly, which also lowers the air temperature in the intake by as much as 75F, increasing the air density and allowing more oxygen into the cylinder yet again, the same way an intercooler does for a turbo system. There are two credible explanations for the explosion in the movie. First off, if the temperature was high enough to split the N2O, it would add more oxygen and accelerate the fire. The pressure valves may have still been open as well, so if the lines burned through it could have been spraying out the lines. If it overpressured, it would possibly have blown the safety valve and started venting right into the middle of the fire. Explanation two is pretty simple. Nitrous tanks are commonly kept at around 900-950PSI(requiring a temperature of 88-100 degrees F or so, so they're pretty warm to begin with) for races, and sometimes up to 1000 PSI. A 33.5 pound tank rupturing can create enough force just from the concussion to cause heavy damage to the car and anything near it(Happened with a Nitrous Express bottle when the heater was left on, google for it, pictures even). Even if the nitrous didn't catch fire and explode, the concussion from his twin 'big tanks' rupturing would have been enourmous. Boom. Problem is, if that was the case, the fire probably wouldn't have mushroomed like that... And of course remember that in Hollywood...EVERYTHING is filled with high explosives. ;)

    The Strangers - 7.5/10

    It's not a bad movie, but kinda slow. You know, didn't get that thrill watching it and the end was kinda "wtf" but it was somewhat tense to watch.

    Let The Right One In - 9/10

    Good stuff, not your typical vampire movie. Watch the original version with English subtitles, not the dubbed American version. D:

    Drag Me to Hell 4.4/10

    That's not a 7.8 like IMDB's community suggest.
    The only good thing about this movie is Alison Lohman's face.

    I don't get the discrepancy in score with this movie. One of my friends said it was absolutely terrible, yet another said it was amazing and a must see.

    Is it like a certain type of humor that only cult followers of this guy can appreciate?

    The Watchmen - 7/10

    Meh. Too hyped in my opinion. The action was good, when there was action. For the rest, most of it was dull.

    Not so much cult followers but more people who like Raimi's take on comedy/horror.

    If you liked his Evil Dead films and Darkman you'll love this film.

    I suppose a lot of people would go to see it because it was "made by the director of the Spiderman movies" but it is as far from those types of films as possible.

    This is classic Raimi, not classic DC or Marvel comics......
