White Men Can't Jump - blah. I'd heard it was supposed to be good but just too loud and mouthy for me. I pretty much wanted to smack everyone round the head and tell them to grow up!

well not a movie but a two hour special on NGC, Icons of Power:Madness of Henry VIII and An Ambitous Empress both really good though I've seen them both several time but now they are saved on my DVR.

There were moments of humour but not enough and it was monumentally stupid!

Watching "A Man for All Seasons", never watched it, heard about it here in the forum and after reading much of the Tudors ans specially reading MG's book I MUST watch this movie!

I haven't seen that since I was a kid and didn't really understand it. I should definitely watch it again.

I mentioned some where else that I found "Seasons" to be very boring.

Its excellent, esp if you know a little background. When I watched it, I knew about Henry VIII and Anne and the split with the Church, so I got most of it. Fantastic acting and production. It does however make More into a matyr - he certainly has a much darker side to him - but still well worth watching.
