- Lost in Translation (2003) - I'm taking a class on Eastern landscapes this semester, and we watched LiT in that class. Honestly, I can't think of a movie I've seen where the landscape plays as huge a part as Tokyo does in this. I wasn't any less impressed with the movie this time around, and I was very happy to find out that it's a rewatchable film. And, hey, if anyone has any ideas for my paper on the role of landscape in LiT, feel free to leave a comment!
- In America (2002) - I was expecting to like this, and I really did. I was actually surprised at how emotional some of the scenes were- I really got attached to the family! Not everything worked, but overall I enjoyed the movie a lot. Oh, and the little girls aren't just adorable; I was also pretty impressed with their performances.
- Fight Club (1999) - I watched this for my Sociology class. We're discussing Weber and Durkheim, and actually, I imagine the discussions about the movie in class were pretty interesting. I kind of didn't go to class that day, though, so I don't know. Anyway. I would have liked the movie a lot more if I hadn't known the ending before I saw it. But, geez, I didn't pick up on half of the hints of the ending, even though I knew what I was looking for. I definitely want to see this one again.
