Eek, I don't want to see anything sad about a dog, it'll make me cry as well! I had it on my Netflix queue for whenever it came out now I'm not sure I want to see it!

I just returned from Benjamin Button. Seeing it upsidedown and backwards would have been an improvement.

"Mummy 3: The Tomb of the Dragon Emperor", it was ok, I like the first 2 better though and Maria Bello as Evy just didn't seem right.

Well, only the end is sad. The rest is funny as the dog makes a case for being the "worst dog in the world". I thought it was cute.

"Bram Stoker's Dracula", the only one I've seen and watch.

To me Bram Stoker's Dracula is the best of all the Dracula films.

My son got Kung Fu Panda for Christmas, so he made me tickets and we went to the movies in the lounge room!

Well, for Christmas I got 3 dvd's: Mamma Mia, St Trinians and The Other Bolyne Girl. While I did the ironing on a very hot day, I watched TOBG! Was not bad!
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx

I love this film, I think Gary Oldman is the best Dracula and the whole thing looks ravishing; shame some of the other performances aren't up to the standard of Oldman's, but it's a great film.
