I took Harm to see "Enchanted" when it came out and we adored it and I got it for the family for Christmas last year.

The 13th Warrior, absolutely on of my favorites and A Banderas plays a really unique part. I keep saying I'm going to buy it then something else grabs my attention.

Yes! a enjoyable film.....You reminded me watch it again....BTW have you read the book the film is based on :o ?........Michael Crichton's "Eater's of the Dead".....interesting read based on the historical journal by Ahmad bin Fadlan the character played by A. Banderas, the 13th warrior...check it out....BTW...many of the critics thinks Crichton ripped it of from the Beowulf legend

personally I like story-telling and myths but Beuwolf is not one of my most liked, i'ld be interested in reading the book version of 13th Warrior.

I recently watched Iron Man and quite enjoyed it. But it got me thinking. There are so many male super hero movies what we need is a female super hero; and not one that prances around in tight body suits and high heels either.

you have a point there but some would say you have Alba of F4 and Berry as Catwoman (could have been so much better) oh yeah and the show Heros of course with Hayden P. It seems the boys get better movies know what I mean?

getting ready to watch The Copse bride by Tim Burton, my eldest girl thinks it is one of the best Halloween movies. It's only our 20+ time to see it.
