I just adored watching Alan Rickman in that one, and I think that no one else can really pull off the role of Brandon after that. The rest, well, they just don't measure up.

I love the movie and the BBC miniseries of Sense & Sensibility. Different yet equal in my opinion. Nothing against Alan Rickman (talented actor that he is) but I have a definite soft spot for David Morrissey as the good Colonel. Probably because of little things they did with the character. And the duel is awesome!

Clash of the Titans ~ um, kinda reminded me of a Scifi movie or something, not impressed.

Book of Eli~ wow, a little odd with the whole shakers thing but the story was incredible in my opinion. Very moving.

Yeah, I agree with that. I pretty much spent the whole movie staring at Hans Matheson and Mads Mikkelsen.

Saw Prince of Persia tonight - we were in the mood for something that required no thinking & this fitted the bill nicely.
After viewing we decided that Sir Ben Kinglsey must have a very big house that needs lots of work, otherwise why would he pick such dreadful movies to be in... :D

(but at least we picked the early movie - the crowds of ladies waiting for the 3x 9pm sessions of Sex & the City were a bit scary ;) )

Alan Rickman could read from a phone book and I'd be spellbound.

Matthew MacFadyen also has a good phone book voice. ;)

Hehe. Yeah. I prefer Jack Davenport though.

Sex and The City 2: completely ridiculous premise and, in my opinion, not nearly as good as the first one; still, seeing the girls stride across Saharan deserts in Prada was worth the price of admission.
