Just finished watching "Appaloosa" Ed Harris, Viggo Mortenson, Renee Zellweger, and Jeremy Irons.....I enjoyed the book, so I was interested how it would translate to the big screen.......They really did a nice job...kept the no nonsense approach, (no special effects) slim on dialogue, action was well paced..... interesting story and character development......An all around good looking film....Viggo is outstanding......

Yesterday I watched Prince Caspian, I thought it was good but a bit too long.

The Hulk, I loved this and thought Liv Tyler and Ed Norton were very good in it. The Best Hulk movie so far. But I still love the old 70's and 80's TV Hulk show.

An oldie, but goodie, Cromwell with the lovely Richard Harris, (dodgy hair though :D ) and Othello, with the lovely Kenneth Branagh as Iago. I love that man.....Ken, not Iago, :D , although I think Iago is the best thing in it, as I find that although he's not the title character, I'm watching it for him, the baddie.

Nope, I've told people to shut-up in the cinemas before. I pays good money to watch a movie the ways it's supposed to be, and not listen to the inane burbling of empty-headed twits :mad:
That being said, I've been vigourously "shushed" in From Hell (the Johnny Depp Jack-the-Ripper movie) as I was in a daft mood befor going in, and the writing & acting struck me as absurd, and the more I tried to stop laughing the worse I got.


Latest movie was Bride Wars - romcom with Kate Hudson & Anne Hathaway. Not very inspiring, we got some laughs out of it, but we both thought thet both the lead characters were unpleasant & pretty much deserved all they got.
And this Friday is The Wrestler, one of the "bangs-and-crashes" movies I owe the SLOC. :)

There's actually very little banging and crashing in it. Like Rocky, it is much more of a deeper personal story than what it looks on face value.

In the Valley of Elah, with Tommy Lee Jones, one of my favorite actors. If I'd known Paul Haggis directed it, I might not have bothered. Jones is excellent in it, but Haggis doesn't know subtle. I hated Crash too. Racism=bad. War=bad. Sigh.

I'm about halfway through Miller's Crossing. The music is gorgeous!
