Well, Desperado was only fun untill they killed off all the cool cameos. But I guess I'll see "Once Upon a Time..." to see more of "Action-Depp".

Claude who what? Never mind. I'll get some sleep and figure it out later. Don't mind me.

Is anyone else bothered by the title of "Once Upon a Time in Mexico"?

It's not like they're REALLY ripping anything off, but considering Sergio Leone did two movies named "Once Upon a Time in the West" and "Once Upon a Time in America", it just seems to me that the title of OUaTiM is at least a bit misleading. I could very well be making too much out of it, though.

I didn't know that, but now that I do, it looks to me like more of a pop reference than a trademark issue.

I don't really think they make good movies. I can enjoy them, middle earth looks great and all, but they don't really have enough substance - I'm not the biggest fan of films with overdramatic hero-characters from ye olde days.

The last few films I watched were all Miyazaki. I saw Spirited Away a few weeks ago, and enjoyed it, so I got round to watching Princess Mononoke and Laputa: Castle in the Sky - also good. I'm not much of an anime fan either, I didn't particularly care for Metropolis, nor was I impressed by any of the other Japanese cartoons I've seen.

Anyway, Spirited Away comes with my recommendation! Which I can assure you, is good enough for anyone. I hear the English dub has recently hit UK cinema screens.

I saw two good movies this week. The first was Dirty Pretty Things, a thriller about illegal immigrants living in East London. The second movie I saw was Matchstick Men, also really good. It has a fantastic ending that totally took me by surprise.
