yes, he's Lucien right? I might add he was half naked through most of the movie and well built. He really brought the character to life, I truely hated Lucien in the first and now, well I feel sorry for the character, he had it rough.

Rhons Mitra played Sonjia. Remember the movie Green Mile? the guy who played Percy plays the vampire who betrayed Lucien and Sonjia. I didn't understand the 'noble' humans they were not attired correctly I think but maybe because they didn't clarify approx. century and I'm no expert.

Ok, that's why I didn't recognize him, I've never seen any of the movies, and he looks so different then usual.

I recently watched 'Across the Universe'. It's a musical and filled with Beatle's hits.

Great movie. Very moving. Kate Winslet totally deserved her awards. :D

My kids have informed me that they want to see Coraline. It won't be at a theater near me until next weekend... so I guess we're going to movies next weekend (we don't go very often). At home, we've been watching Season 3 of Lost.

But then I had thing for the boyishly cute American Werewolf in London back in the day! ;) Love the soundtrack and humor in that classic - by the trvial way, one of the werewolf howl sound effects in AWIL was used in the train station near the beginning of the first Underworld movie.

After finishing reading Time and Chance, I had to watch Becket. Peter O'Toole makes a wonderful Henry II. He really can bellow!

Cool! I didn't know there was a movie about that whole escapade. I'll have to check on the Netflix site and see if they have it.
