I was interested when I first heard of "Black Swan" but when I heard more about it, I think it might be too dark for me.

[quote=""cw gortner""]I'm seeing it this weekend. Can't wait! Natalie Portman goes schizo in a tutu. Hello.[/quote]

LOL, love Natalie Portman. She went the Full Joan Crawford in the Other Boleyn Girl - twas the only good thing about that film :D

Black Swan sounds like classic Hollywood Freudian - lots of opportunities for operatic scenery chewing :p

Oh, yes. I never thought of it that way, but yes: Natalie does channel Joan in TOBG.

My partner says Black Swan looks like Single White Female meets Freddy.

No Reservations - romantic drama - predictable but OK.

Watched Four Christmases. It was ok I guess. Hubby liked it more than I did. Couldn't stand the character of Brad.

Watched Black Death. Who cares about the plot when there is Sean Bean and Eddie Redmayne!

Tangled on Monday. It was cute, but really silly.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
