Lost In Translation
Starring Bill Murray, Scarlet Johansson & Giovanni Ribisi; Directed by Sofia Coppola

Excellent, excellent film. Not balls-to-the-walls action, but it was an excellent study on lonliness and companionship in a faraway land. If you have extra cash, see this for an enlightening film experience.

The Rundown
Starring The Rock, Stifler, Rosario Dawson & Christopher Walken; Directed by Peter Berg

Funner than shit. Awesome time at the movies, filled with fights, jokes, explosions and Rosario Dawson looking hot. Yep, this is basically the opposite of Lost in it's FUN, but not exactly a great film. But f*** it, if you want to have a great time watching The Rock kick ass...this is IT. Way better than it had any right to be.

I saw Lost in Translation last weekend, and it is truly a great movie. But we should throw out a disclaimer of sorts.

This movie is SLOW. It's filled with shots of Bill Murray and Scarlett Johanneson looking at things. It took away from the story for me, but because the acting was so tremendous, I didn't mind too much. Scarlett has grown up so much from The Horse Whisperer to now, and she looks radiant in this movie (I also loved her in Ghost World). Bill Murray deserves an Oscar nomination for his work in this film.

So I would recommend it, but only if you want to see great acting, not if you want to see a fast moving story.
