I'll second Whiteout being mega-laughable. It's genuinely funny if you watch it in a packed theater...too bad you missed that opportunity the day it came out. Kate Beckinsdale basically spends the entire movie making observations of things the audience already sees/has seen. ("It's a body! I think he was stabbed in the chest!", "It's really cold out. There's ice everywhere!", "Diamonds!")

Hahaha -- I saw that movie on my flight back from London in January (couldn't sleep), and it was impressively bad.  As you say, the dialogue is mostly Statements of the Obvious.

I saw North Face (The "Teutonic Titanic") over the weekend.  It's a real cliffhanger.

I saw The White Ribbon over the weekend. It was excellent.

Also, I really want to see Hot Tub Time Machine.

The Ghost Writer, Roman Polanski's new film starring Ewan McGregor and Pierce Brosnan, is great.  A Hitchcockian, stylish thriller with contemporary political overtones.  Performances and cinematography are superb.

This should be entertaining, if only because Perry is certifiably batshit.

THE UPSETTER: THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF LEE "SCRATCH" PERRY

Discover the visionary Jamaican musician and artist, Lee "Scratch" Perry who burst on the scene in the late 1950s with a brand new sound, inventing a genre of music that would come to be called reggae. Perry gained international recognition, working with The Clash and Paul McCartney while mentoring a young Bob Marley. Narrated by Benicio Del Toro, this film charts 70 years in the life of Perry through his own words.

DIR/SCR/PROD Ethan Higbee, Adam Bhala Lough. US, 2008, color, 90 min. NOT RATED

Is there a movie thread? I watch a handful a year, max... but I watched "The Whale" on the plane the other day. Holy shit, that was depressing.
