MOVIES I HAVE FINALLY SEEN

Ok, at the beginning of the year I made a list of movies that I have wanted to see. I slowly began to add to this list and soon it became a mammoth list which would require weeks in order to get through at least half of those movies. So a couple of weeks ago I rented about 10 of these movies and finally watched them. Anyways, this is a list of movies which I have finally seen!
  • Brokeback Mountain- don't really know why I hadn't seen this movie earlier but after finally seeing it, I really really loved it. Such a strong storyline, fantastic acting and overall a beautiful movie.
  • Shawshank Redemption- I now understand why this movie always makes the top 5 best movies ever made. A very powerful movie; extremely moving and such a captivating storyline. Cons: in some parts the storyline was predictable and I found the ending to be too sudden. I also found out that when this movie was released at the cinemas, it performed poorly and only became famous and popular after its release on video.
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind- this is defiantly one of the best films i have ever seen. Such a quirky, amazing and just plain brilliant storyline. Go see it if you haven't seen it.
  • Blood Diamond- I was so excited to finally see this movie. Any movie with Leo in it is definitely guaranteed to be great. This movie did not fail that theory. Full of action, drama, undetected twists, this movie is the perfect action film. I loved Leo's and Djimon Hounsou performances. I don't understand why neither of them got best actor or best supporting actor at the Oscars. Weird.
  • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang- i thought this was such a funny film. I loved Robert Downey Jr's character and his performance in this film. The storyline was unpredictable, very original and extremely funny. I also loved the narration that Downey provided throughout the film. It is also a very quotable film.
    'Yeah, boo, hiss, I know. Look, I hate it too. In movies where the studio gets all paranoid about a downer ending so the guy shows up, he's magically alive on crutches, I hate that. I mean shit, why not bring them all back. But the point is in this case, this time, it really happened. Perry, like, lived. Yeah, it's a dumb movie thing, but what do you want me to do, lie about it?'
  • Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist- This isn't the best film but it is one of the better teen-romance films. It's interesting and watchable, but at times it gets boring and slow. It's a bit annoying how the film only takes place in one night; i think that's what makes the film slow. However, the music in this film is AMAZING! Best soundtrack I have heard in such a long time. Not one song of the album is bad. Vampire Weekend, The Shout Out Louds, Takka Takka, Bishop Allen and We Are Scientists; just some of the sweet artists featured in this album.
  • Milk- pretty awesome film. Made me fall even more in love with Emile Hirsch and James Franco. Great storyline and performances.
    I have just had a major mental blank which is preventing me from remembering anymore movies that I have seen lol. I shall update this list when my brain decides to work :)
