I have seen some really good movies in the past month, two of them in the past two days!
The Departed: Leo, Leo, Leo! Marky-Mark!!! OK, Jack and Matt were good too, as was Alec Baldwin (becoming a nice character actor). But it is Leo who commands the screen.
The Queen: Helen Mirren in a wonderful performance. More nuance in her lifted eyebrow than you can imagine. Interesting version of the royals and the new PM ("Call me Tony") in the week after Diana's death.
The Prestige: I have been waiting for this since I saw the trailer at MI:III in May! Christian Bale/Hugh Jackman. Oh, my! Hunky! Trippy!! CREEPY!!! David Bowie as Tesla with Andy Serkis ("Gollum") as his assistant. Michael Caine! Love Christopher Nolan's movies! Perfect for Halloween (aka, I'm-Hiding-From-The-Trick-Or-Treaters) Night!
Add in "Lady Vengance" a Korean movie about a women who seeks revenge against the man who was in on a crime with her but got away with it while she went to prison. Strange, but enjoyable, in a way...
All quiet now until Thanksgiving when I am sure mom will want to see Casino Royale.
