Liked about half of 8mm. Thought Falling Down had some quality moments. Really enjoyed Phone Booth. Need to see Tigerland. Searching for a pronoun.

One thing about him is that he really is not pretentious at all about what he does. I heard him say something like : "There are better directors, but anybody can direct. Why not me" (close paraphrasing)

This is why not him.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

D.C. Cab is a masterpiece.  The subtle characterizations.  The wonderful emotions.  The cabs.

I saw a trailer yesterday that will make some cry.  It's for "Veronica Guerin," and it says, from Jerry Bruckheimer and Joel Schumacher.  It looks like it might be a decent film, though.

I never got around to seeing the other Veronica Guerin movie with Joan Allen from two or three years ago, called Chasing The Dragon or something of that sort. Come to think of it, did it even get a domestic release? The best thing this one has going for it is Blanchett.

"Tigerland" rocks my socks.  And I like "Phonebooth", too.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Falling Down is one of my faves.  Haven't seen Phone Booth yet.

Nah.  It was OK at best.  A few interesting moments and a hyper-hackneyed courtroom finale (I think—I've so forgotten about that movie).  Yawn.
