I watched Black Swan last night and was pretty bored to begin with but have to say I'm glad I stuck it out to the end...an ironic ending really.

I think the problem with the film is that it doesn't gel fully until literally her last act in the performance which is right at the end of the film; you have the director of the company trying to get it on with her which ties up with the ending, then there's the sublety of the meaning behind Swan Lake itself, which also ties up in her final act, and the fact as to who she killed...etc...but I won't spoil the ending by telling you what does occur.

Doesn't mean to say that you'll like it any better, but at least i won't have given the ending away before you see it.

While I haven't seen Black Swan, what i know of the director, Darren Aronofsky, is that his movies are extremely slow, Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, but if you stick through it at the slow points, you are rewarded with a unique movie experience. I can't say any of his movies are my favorites, but i am extremely glad i watched all of them

Saw Captain America. First half was excellent. Second half was sub-par for me. They moved away from a lot of the characters and engaged in a lot of blech action for me.

Didn't like Cap's mask, nor the Red Skull's face.

I took my two boys to watch it and they loved it.

Me i thought they could have done better. The fight scenes were a little slow even though there was plenty of them and a lot of times i thought the witty comments were just cheesy. Overall i thought it was good not great.

I felt some things to be forced too. Like the kiss at the end.
