    Is that the one that was based on Pirates of Penzance, with the girl dreaming about the Pirate stuff? If so, then I remeber it and it was funny.


    I watched Batman Begins last night. Wicked Liam. Happy Sigh.

    Last night I watched Syriana and a few days ago I watched Winter Passing. Winter Passing was a funny quirky movie, I liked it. Ed Harris was good in it, it was a really different part for him.

    A few days ago I finally watched Darkman. I had never seen it before, believe it or not.

    Crispy, psychotic, vengeful Liam. Not as wonderful as some of the other Liams, but still a good time. ;)

    I rented "A History of Violence." It is EXCELLENT. No Liam, but Viggo plus Ed Harris and William Hurt. Very well put together. Lots of layers.

    I finally finished Battlestar Galacta Season 1 and it was excellent. The show was better than I expected, and I expected it to be good. It?s fresh (at least to me) and the story lines and characters are interesting. I can't wait to watch the Season 2 DVD next. I highly recommend it. Perhaps the Star Trek writers can take some notes from BG, but they won?t.

    Before I move on to Season 2 of BG, I started watching 24 Season 2, and it?s very good as well... though somewhat exhausting to watch with everything that happens. It's like watching a very long movie.

    After this it?s either Battlestar Galacta Season 2 or Lost Season 1. There is absolutely no need (for me anyway) to try to keep up with these shows on TV when they will just be available on DVD. Cliffhanger endings only take 10 seconds instead of a week. DVDs were made for TV shows!

    Last night I watched Tristan and Isolde with my wife. I had mixed feelings going into it, I thought it was going to be a total chick flick. Boy I was surprized! It had a lot of action in it and was less of a chick flick and more of an action movie. If it has been one of those movies you always walked by in the video store pick it up, you'll be surprized.

    I finished Lost Season 1 yesterday. It was excellent. J.J. Abrams is a very good writer (or creator of characters.) He (or whoever is responsible for the majority of episodes) understands characters and how to use the plot to develop them. I am sure that the next Trek movie is in good hands.

    I watched Serenity on Tuesday and I think that it was a decent first effort for the TV to film conversion. Some of the effects left a lot to be desired though, and definitely made me long for a sequel with a larger budget. It strikes me as odd that the futuristic city in a 25-year-old Blade Runner looked more alive and realistic then what we see in Serenity. It seemed almost as if they used a set from an earlier episode of Star Trek TNG for a few scenes.

    Next up is V for Vendetta!

    I watched V for Vendetta last night, also! I love that movie. The graphic novel is one of my favorites and I think they did an excellent job translating the graphic into a film.

    I too watched V for Vendetta on DVD and just like the Matrix movies it requires several watchings to catch all the little hidden meanings and philospohies. And just like the Matrix movies I give it four stars ****! =D=

    The last group of DVDs I watched:

    The Third Man =D=[face_dancing]:D Excellent

    The Statement [face_tired] Rather dull and a subpar performance from Michael Caine

    Gangs of New York [face_flag] Good, but too heavily stylized and a bit over acted, imo.

    Firewall [face_mischief] Better than I expected, but still on the 4th best movie on this list.

    North by Northwest :cool: Hitchcock. Not as good as I expected, but a fine action movie from 1959.

    Just gone done watching Vendetta myself. Rented it from Hollywood video but I think I'm going to buy it. Someone told me there is a version of it out that comes with the mask. Any idea where I might find that?

    I watched V for Vendetta as well. You can get that special edition with the mask at Best Buy. It's like $35. But the mask isn't wearable unless you have a head the size of the shrunken heads from beetlejuice, it's not fullsize.
