Movie clips.

What I've watched recently:

In Bruges (8/10)
Shades of Ben Kingsley's Sexy Beast in Ralph Fiennes. Ben was much more ruthless.

Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (5/10)
The gross-out comedy overshadows the original's amusing satire.

Star Trek (7/10)
Clever. Maybe a little too clever? What with all the in-jokes and "remember that?" moments.

Casino (7/10)
I remember when I was 13 (when this came out) thinking that a guy's head in a vise would be the grossest thing ever. It wasn't.

Letters from Iwo Jima (7/10)
Clint Eastwood is not a war film director, but this is not a war film.

What WERE your parents thinking? Letting you see a movie like that when you were 13.

You didn't let me watch it when I was 13. You said it was too violent and cited the head-in-a-vise scene as an example. Seems tame to me now.
