[quote=""SonjaMarie""]I didn't get very far into that movie either, it was a let down.

For me it was having to listen to Yiddish being spoken with that deep in dixie southern accent that was so grating. Not to mention the lousy plot and general meaness of the film. I actually like satire, but this was cruelty.

"The Fall" a very surreal movie, beautiful to look at. The actor from "Pushing Daisies" is in it (Lee Pace) and he's much sexier than he is on "PD". There's a very young Romanian actress in it who is just adorable! She was 9 or so when she shot the movie and her character is 5. She didn't know English and had to learn the lines by heart.

Underworld. Watching it, I wondered if it gave Stephenie Meyer the germ of an idea for Twilight....

Underworld is a very cool movie. I've watched it a few times, but didn't care for the second installment, Underworld:Evolution, as much. I'm really looking forward to the next to be released, The Rise of the Lycans, in 2009.

Yes, I agree all the way Leyland. I don't rate Underworld Evolution half as much. I didn't realise there was going to be a third film though. I'll have to look out for that one!

We were watching La Vie en Rose yesterday afternoon (it's a lazy weekend here). Very harrowing and beautifully told although the contstant jumps back and forth in her life were at times a bit confusing. You didn't really know immediately when certain events occurred and had to remain focused throughout. But it was worth it, including some excellent acting and make-up. Not sure if I'd watch it again, though. But what a sad life really. Bless.

Saw Ghost Town Saturday night and then rented Speed Racer yesterday.

Ghost Town was funny.

Saw "Elizabeth - The Golden Age" the other night and wasn't very impressed, it looks gorgeous and CB is good as always, however it was more style over substance. Thought the first film was much better, although I've always thought that the part of her life which involved Robert Dudley was more interesting.
