Tropic Thunder - I actually liked this one quite a bit. I'm not a big Ben Stiller fan, and he does his usual routine in this movie, but the rest of the characters and the situation as a whole I just found hilarious. Definitely a movie where you have to turn your brain off, but if you can suspend your disbelief just enough and enjoy it for what it is, there's a lot of laughs to be found.

 

Burn After Reading - definitely a movie that you either "get" or you don't. And even if you "get" it, there's something not quite right. I dunno, it's a funny movie for just the absurdity of it all. Linda Litchky is a very memorable character, and it's interesting to see how these seemingly independent motivations and storylines just crash into each other. I can see why some people wouldn't be too happy with it.

I saw Tropic Thunder - impossible, quite dumb.. Stiller is so stale. Still, I came away from it in an okay mood. Tom Cruise was good.

I quite liked the small different storylines and the single jokes of "Burn After Reading" but as I already said, the ending.... Thanks for the effort you made to explain it to me, maybe it's just cool to watch it again and then have a closer look on all the  stuff (like the file they close at the end).

I like horror and ghetto comedies (Ice Cube and Master P movies)! My preference, however, is for creepy surreal horror.

My recent favorite was Popuation 436. It's an eerie thriller starring Jeremy Sisto (guy from Law and Order). I LOVED IT! It's subtle, yet creepy and has that small-town horror feel. It's not horror in the sense of AHHHHHHHHHH, but it's that surreal shit that really delivers a bang. It's essentially the tale of a small town that has maintained a population of exactly 436 people for several centuries. Sisto plays a population censor who stumbles upon the town while trying to collect data for his research. Let's just say that once he arrives, there is no way for him to leave. GOD will not allow it. Watch the rest to see what I mean!

Another favorite of mine is The Wicker Man. Can you imagine a city operated by women? The men in fact serve as 'slaves' to the demands of this matriarchical tribe. If that in itself doesn't leave goosebumps crawling over your skin, then just watch the movie! I warn you... BEWARE!
