"chuck" wrote:"In Bruges" great film.....Gleeson and Farrell are very likable and regular people.....The scary thing is their chosen vocation....I really enjoyed Fiennes character....he really pulled it off.....It reminded of another great and quirky crime film "Sexy Beast" Staring Sir Ben Kingsley and Roy Winstone...not for the faint of heart, but so compelling... Kingsley is mesmerizing...........


I liked In Bruges, too! Excellent film. I loved Sexy Beast, though. Ray Winstone is amazing.

I saw Traitor with Don Cheedle and Guy Pearce. Very well done and thought provoking. I'd watch paint peel if Guy Pearce is starring in it.

He certainly is - yes yes YES!! :D

That was a very good movie, very thought-provoking. Never seemed to get much of a release here in the UK, which was a shame...

Do you have to be big science fiction fan to like it? I'm not a trekkie at all, but I want to see a movie in a theatre this weekend and there isn't anything else out there that interests me.

Watched "Lost in Austen" tonight, and it was great fun! A film that I need to add to my collection.

We finished watching Defiance with Daniel Craig and Lief whatshisname (Naomi's Watt's other half).

Quite a good movie I thought. Though for a very large group of people hiding in the forest (Jewish hiding from the German's in case you haven't heard of this movie), as much as they struggled for food....they never seemed to be short a bottle of vodka!

Last night we watched Alfred Hitchcock's "Rebecca" based on Daphne du Maurier's book with Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine. It won a best film Oscar and Olivier and Fontaine were both nominated, but the acting style was sure melodramatic! I guess that was the trend back then. We also thought the dialogue was rather stilted. The ending is a bit different than the novel's ending, supposedly because of the censors.
