    The date for Watchmen may be tentative as we aren't sure how long the trial pertaining to the rights ownership will go on for.

    Taken - January 30

    Go see this movie. If you like the Bourne movies and Liam Neeson, you will like this movie.

    IIRC, there are some quick cuts, but nowhere near as quick as Quantum of Solace. I don't remember the cam being shaky.

    I've never even heard of half the movies, forgot about some, and Astroboy as a movie? I guess all the people who grew up watching cartoons are making movies now. I'm just waiting for a live action Care Bear movie.

    that is weird. it seems like an incredibly stupid idea, NOT to release it in Canada.:(

    I hope the Trek movie does well or it could possibly kill the franchise for quite a few years. I am not happy with the pics I saw of the new Enterprise

    I hear Caroline 3D is good

    I just saw Coraline and it was very good. It is supposed to be a kids movie but there were a couple of scenes that I thought was a bit over the top for kids.

    i saw watchmen... 3 weeks ago, i think. it was SOOOOOO good. My god, it was the best movie i've seen in a LONG time [except for star wars, of course :p]. And Coraline was good too! though it scarred ME at times, and that doesn't happen often! [face_laugh]

    so is Fanboys o;ly in Toronto? oh well, i geusse it's better than nothing. but i don't think ill be making the 2 hour drive out there. :_| i'm just too damn BUSY thes days! :_|
