It's one of my alltime favourites.

Jöns is my favourite character.

Personally I'd highly recommend this film which is deep and thoughtful but it may not be to everyone's taste. (No great action scenes or romance) Plus the whole thing is in Swedish (unless they've dubbed it for the re-release which would be an absolute travesty) which may be a factor for non-Swedes.
It has English subtitles (I double checked before plopping it on the Netflix queue). A large portion of my film viewing is foriegn films--without English subtitles, I'd be sunk.

Plus, it has the potential to be a hit with Will Smith's fans, which I am part of.
I read the book first, then saw the film and liked both. It's a story with great with potential for a great modern film (the last one is getting pretty long in the tooth). But Will Smith and (non-comedic) scifi don't wash for me. I, Robot did not work (again, for me). I keep on thinking he'll pull out a Men In Black blaster out.

2. The Invasion: Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman both together in a 2007 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
What, again? Okay, the last remake had room for improvement.

Quote:
3. The Golden Compass: This looks really intriguing, almost like a Chronicles of Narnia type Fantasy film.
Hmm, Craig and Kidman again.

I just saw her last night in Dead Calm (a film I've seen in full before, but caught 20 minutes of it channel surfing before bed). I read today that this was her US debut (and you can tell how she worked on her accent since this film). She was stunning.

4. The Water Horse-Legend of the Deep: I have a feeling that this is going to be a new version of E.T. for anyone who hasn't seen that famous film. Other than that, it looks like it will be a cute family film, and I like the way the Water Horse creature looks when he becomes fully grown.
Looks good. This looks like it will be quite different than E.T. though, more mythological, and not set in a modern Southern California suburb. Which is good.

I thought Rushmore and Tenenbaums were really good movies, but his style of film making is something that can easily start to annoy me. Darjeeling doesn't look particularly interesting from the trailer, but then again, his movies don't translate well into trailer form.

Get Smart, starring Steve Carell.

Seems like a good choice for the role. I'm hoping they don't reuse too many tired jokes; the trailer had one good one at least.

The best theory I've heard is its a Lost tie-in. Maybe to get people to bother tuning in again for the last 3 seasons. With 'flash-forwards' showing cast members having escaped the island, why not some of the island mojo too?

I should clarify, I have seen approximately 2 and a half episodes of Lost so far (including the latest season finale)... and 1 of the 'catch up' shows. I know the 'monster' is some black smoke let-down but it can take on 'forms'... *shrug*.

It could just be a Blair Witch in new york deal. I'm not sure I could stomach another hour plus of shakey cam... the way that shit has invaded every new cooking show these days makes me want to smack cameramen whenever I see them. Its fucking hilarious that every new generation of digital camera touts brand new anti-shake doodads. They must have to fight tooth and nail with their cameras these days to get that 'authentic' handy-cam look.

Hmm. One could make the case for the 50s being actually the peak of the genre with High Noon, Rio Bravo, The Searchers, and yes, 3:10 to Yuma not that far behind those in terms of fame and quality.

By "US debut", didn't they mean "the first film with her released in US", though? It was shot in Australia, most of the cast and crew was Australian (including Kidman, Sam Neill and Phillip Noyce), so I assumed her character was Australian, too.

And yes, Nicole's performance is very good. I used to think she had evolved from a so-so talented starlet to a very talented actress somehere around 2001, but then I've seen Dead Calm, and realized she always had it in herself.

I probably should have said "her major film breakthrough".

I too didn't realize it until this recent viewing. Other good early films of hers are Far and Away and To Die For, but I didn't really appreciate her until Moulin Rouge! I'm now back-tracking her filmology in a bit of study.

I was really surprised when I heard Golden Compass was being made. I can't help but expect any of the sequels will suffer heavy re-writes. They tread on religious toes rather harshly.

I wonder how true it will stay to the original Beowulf tale. BTW, it took me some time before I realised it was an animated movie.

I agree, hopefully the new Indy-movie will be good or they'll fuck up my childhood. I had a crush on Karen Allen when I was 5.

I have seen High Noon but wasn't that impressed. The westerns had their peak with Sergio Leone IMO.

I see this talk of Westerns, so I must throw in my 2 cents...

Best Western TV Series - Deadwood (by a mile)

Best Western Miniseries - Lonesome Dove (by a mile also)

Best Western Movie - The Wild Bunch is probably my favorite

Other Excellent Westerns -

Stagecoach (John Ford original)
Unforgiven
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Once Upon a Time in the West
The Kid Brother (Harold Lloyd silent comedy)
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Red River
The Searchers
Ride the High Country
My Darling Clementine
Rio Bravo
Shane
High Noon
Dances With Wolves
The Great Train Robbery (the first Western, made in 1903)

"Jack Black will star and produce The Lost Adventures of Stone Perlmutter Jr. for Universal Studios, says The Hollywood Reporter. The project comes from writers Peter Huyck and Alex Gregory.

"Perlmutter" is described as a faux documentary made from recently "discovered" footage from 1979 chronicling the disastrous journey of a self-styled Indiana Jones-type adventurer who traveled the world trying to find the Yeti, El Dorado, the lost tomb of Jesus and other great mysteries.

Black is attached to play Perlmutter and will produce via his Universal-based Electric Dynamite."

Now that sounds like a great Jack Black movie.

Now that is absolutely great news.

I really hope that there could be a sequel, but that sounds almost too good to be true.
