I enjoyed this when I saw it when it was in the cinemas. I don't think it is for younger kids though.

One of the highlights for me was the glimpse that we got of an underwater circle of stones - complete Outlander moment for me!

We really enjoyed "Water Horse" when we watched it on DVD.

Has anyone seen RocknRolla by Guy Ritchie or Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make A Porno yet? If they are half as decent as Clerks and Snatch then I know I will enjoy them.

I rented Wuthering Heights with Juliette Binoche (awesome actress) and Ralph Fiennes (awesome actor). I've never read nor seen any of Emily Brontes' work but Iheard it was really good so I thought a nice moviethis evening has been well deserved.

Nona, didn't you think Juliette Binoche was a rather strange choice for casting as Catherine Earnshaw? The rather refined French accent just didn't seem to fit with the wild Yorkshire lass of the novel...I was glad to see, though, that they took the story further to the next generation and didn't leave it at Cathy's death, as the old Laurence Olivier one did.

I recently saw for the 3rd or 4th time House of Games by Mamet with Joe Mantegna and Lindsay Crouse.

Aside from enjoying the twists, turns, and ending, I also was intrigued by the rhythm and repetition of the dialogue.

Definitely one of my all-time favorite films.
