    hmm... my interests:

    Oct. 19 - From Hell

    (maybe a movie night on the Friday and Ken's on Saturday? Thoughts?)

    Oct. 26 - K-Pax - I saw a commercial, seems decent.
    - Life as a House - Co-stars Darth Vader and seems like it could be good film.

    Nov. 2 - Monsters Inc. (Movie night w/ LOTR at Casa Loma)

    Nov 16 - Harry Potter
    Nov 21 - Black Knight - Not really interested in, but my bet the Episode II trailer will be attached to it (it's a Fox release and near thanksgiving)

    Dec 07 - Ali
    Dec 19 - hmm...I wonder?

    ** If I watch any other movie but LOTR until Episode II**

    Dec 21 The Majestic
    Gangs Of New York

    Feb 08 - The Time Machine

    Mar 01 - Blackhawk Down (Ridley Scott)

    Did you (or anyone, for that matter) manage to catch From Hell this past weekend, Adam? I've read incredibly mixed reviews everywhere, but haven't been wholeheartedly convinced to spend time on it yet... (and my time is even more scarce than money lately, sadly :_( )

    Nope, I didn't get a chance. I think I will have to wait until its released on DVD to see it. I don't have the time and $12.50 to see it.

    With the cost of movies being so high I am becoming more selective in what I will see in theatres or what I'll wait for and rent when released on DVD.

    Also, almost all of my spending money has been going toward DVDs and the upcoming launch of Gamecube.

    Bad thing about that, most of my spending money, which was suppose to last 8 months, will be gone by December.

    At least I will have more than enough things to occupy with my time with.

    If you see it, let me know what you think.

    I saw it on Friday night. It wasn't bad. Not great either I guess. All in all I enjoyed it.

    Worth seeing: sure.
    In a theater: If you're a big Depp fan, or have the cash to blow, yeah...
    Will you miss much by waiting for DVD: Not really.

    Ah but the graphic novel was painful!

    the Art (if I can even call it that) was ridiculous!

    Even the story itself was, at the beginning, lost and confused. It does pick up in the later half, but you have to get through that first part.

    The movie, was a culling of the best of that book, they did the combining of a few characters and added the psychic but to Depp's part (but thankfully it's not the major plot device it seems to be in the trailer)

    I enjoyed the movie, though I didn't love it.

    Crack* sqlup, plop. That would be the sound of Tragic's heart breaking. He enjoyed the graphic novel of From Hell. However, it's not for everyones taste.

    Anyway, Has anyone seen Life As A House? I saw the first commercial for it yesterday. It looked good. Anyone gone and seen it and willing to give a word-of-mouth review?

    I think it was received well at the Toronto Film Festival, reviews should start appearing soon, if they haven't already.

    I heard that Life as a House begins with Hayden stoned inside a closet engaged in auto-erotic asphyxiation.
    Weird, eh?

    Yup, that's accurate. By the by, for any Hayden-watchers here, there was an article in the Globe and Mail today making reference to him (about Life as a House).

    From Hell (the movie) = boring boring BORING. No shocking plot-twists, no dramatic buildup, no intrigue to keep people interested beyond the halfway point when the underlying conspiracy is hinted-at. The art-direction was too meaninglessly dark & muddy, and Depp's character was lifeless & uninteresting, without enough true passion in either the case or his own existence to warrant a good deal of sympathy.

    Thirteen Ghosts - incredible art-direction & design for both the house & ghosts, but a dull lifeless mess in both script & casting. The original 1960 classic was renowned at the time for its gimmicky "Illusion-O" magic viewing glasses that allowed theatregoers the choice of either seeing or blocking-out the ghosts... with today's technology, I don't know why they didn't attempt a similar gimmick at select screenings in certain major cities, as only a cool gimmick like Illusion-O could possibly save this from the Golden Raspberry awards.

    Mulholland Drive - brilliant in every possible way, including the tastefully-shot girl-on-girl action that'll hopefully be expanded-upon in the spec.edition dvd. :D Lynch is back in top-form, although the bizarre final half seemed a little too much like Lynch trying to out-Lynch himself in the weirdness department... ("they loved the Twin Peaks finale, so I guess I'll throw some weird time-twisty stuff in HERE as well!")
