The Sentinel, a somewhat engaging but otherwise forgettable Hollywood thriller.

Last night we watched Kill Bill and Pride and Prejudice (the recent cinematic release)...both very good films I thought.

Hot Fuzz

was a funny film if you can understand the cultural significance of things, it's a subtle kind of humour but to me it was bloody hilarious. i don't know if i like it more than shaun of the dead but i know if you liked that you will love this too, i'd definitely recommend this film.

Mr J and I finally got to see Casino Royale. We both liked the new style of Bond and especially I liked Daniel Craig's apperance. Normally in Bond movies it's the girls coming up from the water looking sexy. This time Bond did that twice.

Hot Fuzz

Very Very funny.

I still think Shaun of the Dead is a better film, but Nick Frost in patcular was superb.

Probably a tad too laong with the gunfights at the end and i'm not sure how this film will play abroad, but I was in stitches.

Spaceballs - not as funny I remembered it being. Bad acting and bad timing.

The House Of Usher (2006) - Now that was a waste of time, wasn´t even a bit scary.

Crank - I liked it, because it was so different, not your typical Hollywood action movie..

Well, The Number 23 was a blast!! Really enjoyed it, Jim Carrey was extremely creepy, and the plot was like something out of a Twilight Zone episode. Reminded me of the novel The Count of Eleven, in a way, with the obsession over numbers having a deeper meaning.

Then came home and saw Edgar Allan Poe's "The Black Cat" on Masters of Horror, it's like a short horror movie each week on that show. Great stuff, of what I've seen.

So...we saw Letters From Iwo Jima after seeing The Queen...both very good from what I could tell....unfortunately we're going to have to see Iwo Jima again. Not only was the beginning messed up because the incredibly daft theater people hadn't checked to see if the film was correct, but there was a couple behind us who felt that Clint Eastwood's film would be so much better with their own personal commentary running in the background. The guy spoke up every 40 seconds or so and didn't even bother to lower his voice. AAARGH. It makes me so MAD when people talk during movies. WHY? WHYYY? It's so incredibly RUDE! Watch the freakity fraz FILM for cripes sake or go HOME and watch TV where you can be a rustic fool without bothering anyone!

The Queen was interesting. I wonder what the royal family thought of it. Helen Mirren was perfect for the part I thought.

Snorkle
I hate loud people in movie theaters too. I also hate when kids behind me are kicking my chair repeatedly since they like to swing their legs.
I always end up frustrated. Either beacuse I decide to tell the person/kid off and then feel like I was too rude. Or because I don't tell the person/kid off and then I feel they've ruined my whole experience.

Out of curiosity, what did you do?

Well, we gave them lots of evil eyeballs, and the occasional shhhh, but eventually we both exploded and yelled at them to either watch the movie or leave. They remained silent, but we avoided them afterwards to avoid the alwardness of it all. We did walk past one of them on the way to the bathroom afterwards though...
yeeek.

Had a similar situation at The Number 23, couple with a teen, and the 3 of them chose the movie theatre for the right time to catch up with each other, conversationally. I tried shushing, deep sighing, the ever-popular "a-HEM" clearing of the throat. Nada. Kept right on yakking away. Finally I went to the lobby, told someone, they came back with me. When the family from Hell started up again, he swooped in and told them to stop, lol.

Ridiculous. I mean, you CAN watch a movie and talk everyone's year off...just as long as you rent a film and do it at home. I hate paying 20 bucks to see a movie I can't hear.

The Good Shepherd Wow, this movie was 3 hours and 10min long, and this movie really makes you think. Angelina Jolie stole the scenes from Matt Damon, and the ending is just great, just go see it.

Somehow, I never saw this, even being a big Mel Brooks fan. So a few months back, I bought a used copy. I couldn't finish it, and now I find that I can't sell it--nobody wants it!

I just finished watching Spiderman and Spiderman II.
