My younger son is on his marks to see that one - mainly to do with Kate Beckinsale I am told! :rolleyes: :D

I watched Broken Trail last night. A bit slow in the middle - could have done with cutting, but that's just a nitpick. Thoroughly enjoyed Robert Duvall's wily and wise old guy and the strong, silent nephew.

He's probably going to be disappointed then. Kate's character Selene is not in this prequel to the first two Underworld movies. A vamp named Sonja played by Rhona Mitra is the sexy Death Dealer in this one.

I go see them for Michael Sheen, myself. Love his voice and the rest ain't so bad either! I like the first UW movie a good bit, not so much the second one, and enjoyed this last one - Rise of the Lycans - as much as the first one. Bill Nighy is one of my favorite actors and I'm always happy to watch him be Viktor.

Oh calamity! The poor boy is going to be devastated! ;)
I preferred the first one, but I enjoyed both.

I plan on seeing Rise of the Lycans this weekend. Personally Rhona is much better suited for the role, I saw her in DoomsDay and my gosh that girl was fit to kick butts and take names later. I like the strong female roles though ex. Resident Evil, DoomsDay, UnderWorld, you get the picture.

I watched Bee Movie and The Other Boleyn Girl today.

I can't believe how much they messed up TOBG. Should have been an amazing movie given all the personalities, history and cast.

I watched Marie Antoinette finally. Didn't expect to be impressed. Was not disappointed on that score. Might have liked it better with different music.

The Mummy 3 - Dragon Emperor - poor compared to the others. Some bad casting in the replacement Evie.

Broken Trail. A bit slow in part 2 but otherwise thoroughly enjoyed this alternative western - apparently based on a true story.

Rise of the Lycans at the Imax, have to agree it could be voted the best of the three.

Can you tell me who Michael Sheen is playing, I can't tell from the commercials.
