[quote=""Alaric""]There's actually very little banging and crashing in it. Like Rocky, it is much more of a deeper personal story than what it looks on face value.[/quote] From the previews we've seen, I didn't really think it would have bangs and crashes in it - it does look like a personal jounrey...

[quote=""chuck""]Am I the only one that demands quiet when watching a film at a theater?[/quote] Nope, I've told people to shut-up in the cinemas before. I pays good money to watch a movie the ways it's supposed to be, and not listen to the inane burbling of empty-headed twits :mad: That being said,...

Australia - I enjoyed this, even though I did take some parts with a grain (or more!) of salt. But I adore Hugh Jackman, and any opportunity to see him on the big screen without his shirt on must be taken... :D I now owe the SLOC 2 "bangs-and-crashes" movies (I made him take me to The Duchess as we...

I'm a nun, which I find amusing - especially the part about being the closest thing to a Nurse most people have. Although, I do like the bit about being clean...

Robin Hood for mine! Especially Robin McKinley's (The Outlaws of Sherwood) and Jennifer Roberson's (Lady of the Forest)

The younger sister of a girl I went to school with married a guy with the surname of "Scragg" and took his name. :confused: I'm not sure if others are familiar with the slang meaning, which is roughly a "loose woman" or one who is excessively tarty (it's a bit hard to describe), but it doesn't have ...
