Some Recently Seen Films

Slumdog Millionaire: Enjoyable, but the storyline is marred by a number of clichés.

Gran Torino: I liked this one. It did follow a pattern most viewers will be familiar with, but it was a good experience.

Estômago: As far as food films go, this Brazilian piece is one of the better ones. Not as good as some of the Japanese ones like Tampopo, but still highly enjoyable despite a few minor flaws.

The Good, The Bad and The Weird: A very entertaining Korean “western” starring the magnificent Kang-Ho Song. The plot (find the treasure) is pretty bland, but the film itself is anything but, with a number of good set pieces, great scenery and a higher body count than I have seen in a good while.
