Meet Bill

I feel safe in advising people to skip this one. Not horrible but pretty much a waste of time.

Then She Found Me with Helen Hunt and Bette Midler - strange film, BM was irritating, and HH was so thin she looked ill. Still it did have Colin Firth at least.

on tv last night was War of the Worlds, the newest one with Tom Cruise, though I'm no Cruise fan I forgot how good the movie was.

just finished watching transformers. What a horrible movie. I wanted more explosions and cool fights. All I got was some corny love story and Megan Fox being slutty. Lame.

We got the new Star Trek movie from Netflix yesterday and watched it last night. The special effects sure have improved since the 1960s!

I watched Public Enemies last night - I enjoyed it, but then again, I'd enjoy anything which had Johnny Depp in it! LOL.

That's one of my watch again favourites too!

I have just bought (very cheaply) for my watch again collection:

Die Hard (one of my all time faves!)
3 Wallace & Gromit shorts - Grand Day out, The Wrong Trousers, A Close Shave.
Who Killed Roger Rabbit
Transformers 1.
Chicago (got nicked by my MIL and I never got it back, so have had to rebuy).
Cool Runnings
Working Girl
Dirty Dancing (replacement again).
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Yep, Stargate is a great watch-again movie, also the first Die Hard.

Must admit I've never really "got" Wallace and Gromit, although it's clever.

Not sure if I could watch Dirty Dancing or Ghost now.
