    ...yeah, i liked "Garage Days" alot...

    I guess it was absolutely trashed in Australia, when it was first released.. Can't understand why.You're right about the cinematography.. VERY colourful movie.. Pretty to look at..

    Sort of a mix between "The Commitments" and "Trainspotting"..

    Intolerable Cruelty- This movie was so funny and entertaining. I have had this much fun watching a movie in a long time. I know that there cannot be a part two but one can hope.

    The last film I saw and the last I saw in theatres was the Donnie Darko Director's cut :cool: All in all, not a film I felt needed much improving upon. But that didn't really feel like the point of this. It was more just fleshing out of things that fans who had read The Philosophy of Time Travel chapters on the DVD had mostly come to understand anyway. There was a lot of deepening of the religious allegory, though, at least I thought so.

    In any case, it was very nice to get to see one of my favourites in theatres since I missed it the first time around. I even got to introduce some new people to it :)

    I just saw The Whole 10 yards, which I thought was pretty funny, mostly because of Matthew Perry, hehe.

    Intolerable Cruelty put me to sleep. :p

    But, I got the biggest laugh out of the last movie I watched, Something's Got to Give. It was hilarious.

    The Cookout

    what a lame movie. all the best, good and decent scenes were ALL in the trailer already. so this movie ended up being a huge waste of time. also very cliche.
    stay away from that one!

    Shaun of the Dead on DVD :D

    Love it, works on many different levels and has great subtle humour which I love. And the DVD came with a great 2000AD comic-book poster. The DVD's menus are also really good.

    I hope to see The Bourne Supremecy later at the cinema....I hope I like it and will let you know :cool:

    Resident Evil: Apocalypse
    It was great, was it leaps and bounds over the first one...NO, but it definetly keeps you intrested in the series. Oh yes there will be another. Video games don't usually make good movies but Resident Evil changed that. Good job Paul.

    The Bourne Supremecy

    I finally got to see it and I loved it, I would even say it's better then Identity. A lot of moments in the film shocked me, and even today I'm still thinking about them. The action was also intense and the photography is just superb! These films reek of dirt and grit which makes it feel very real.
    If you've seen Identity then you must go see this one!!!! NOW ;)

    Yesterday I watched Attack of the Clones for the first time in about 5 months. Watched the first hour of Jackie Brown and in the evening I watched the commentary by Roger Ebert on Dark City and the first hour of Magnificent Obsession.

    I dont usually watch that many movies in one day but it was my day off so had a lot of free time. :)

    "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow".. Angelina Jolie completely saves the film after a very flat start..


    And, oh, on The Bourne Supremecy :

    Good movie, to be sure, but did you crack up as hard as i did when Karl Urban walks out of that Nightclub and it's 3 in the afternoon?

    THX 1138 The George Lucas Director's Cut.

    I must say, if this film was released in 2004, it would be my favorite of the year, a testament to its intelligence and timelessness.

    Tonight I watched <i>Unforgiven</i> again. The first time I saw it, I didn't much care for it. Thought it was boring. Now, I think it's a truly tremendous movie, one of my favorites -- though not one I watch frequently. It's a powerful, honest movie, and even if you don't watch many movies, and even if you don't think you like westerns, you should definitely watch it. Definitely, definitely I say.

    Huh, the Unforgiven is one of those movies everyone has seen but me, but I always forget to rent it. Thanks for reminding me.

    I just watched Ella Enchanted (Sorta watched, I was working on my computer at the time). It's a cutsey flick, but Anne Hatheway is so beautiful and has the most amazing smile that I think I'm in love.

    ...yeah, i had a similar experience with "Unforgiven"..First time i saw it, i actually fell asleep.. Second time i saw it (about a year ago), it was tremendous...

    Anyways, this evening i was dragged to "Wimbledon"..gah, i suppose there's a shortage of movies centered around Tennis, but what the heck is so much talent doing in such a medicore film? Paul Bettany, Kirsten Dunst, Bernard Hill, Sam "How the great have fallen" Neill, James "Leto II" McAvoy...What were these guys thinking?

    A film so thoroughly predictable and mediocre that i nearly went into a coma..Ah well, Bettany IS a charming bloke...

    I've been meaning to see it, as I don't mind kiddie fantasies and Hathaway is indeed beautiful.

    Apparently her next movie, Havoc, has more nudity than some pornos! :eek:

    FINALLY saw "Napoleon Dynamite", this afternoon...

    Very quirky, but ultimately heart-warming quasi-comedy..

    Not for all tastes (half of my theatre walked out), but if you 'get it', you'll most certainly enjoy it..

    LOVED the musical selections (especially THE A-TEAM theme!)

    "Pedro offers you his protection..."

    ...saw Mr. 3000 tonite, and then, when it was done, couldn't resist and saw "Sky Captain" a second time..

    "Mr. 3000" was actually a pretty entertaining baseball movie, so long as it was focusing on the actual game and ignoring the painful 'romance'...

    Not funny in the least, though.. PAINFULLY so, but if you like baseball, it is worth watching for the baseball bits...

    "Sky Captain" is one that i will own on DVD when it comes out.. It's just a tremendously fun movie to watch (it was much more entertaining the second time around)

    To quote Robin Williams from Live on Broadway: Really?
