What is with Eric Roberts jokes? Is it a new phenomenon among folks whose movie viewrship started with Spiderman movies?
ER is a phenomenal actor when given the right material. Rent "The Pope of Greenwich Village".


P.S. His wooden syster can learn a thing or two about acting from him.

ok so just off a long haul flight, meaning crap movies aplenty. Watched Casino Royale again - which interestingly has the poisoning part cut for the plane version, but anyhow, I still like it. Watched the dreadful Will Ferrell flick Stranger than Fiction - nothing going for it at all. Just MRQE-ed it and see that it gets really good reviews...was I watching a different film??? Also watched Robin Williams get kinda elected to president in whatever that movie was called. (edit - Man Of The Year). Tried to be funny and poignant. Wasnt. Saw A Night at the Museum - mediocre. Also watched Hugh Jackman and Michael Caine in The Prestige, which felt like it took a long time to get to its twist-at-the-end and the payoff wasnt worth the wait...although admittedly I was pretty damn tired by this time. edit - btw, I am no real Scarlett fan, but she is smoking in period-wear, and looks amazing in The Presitige

I really liked this one, which is weird, because I'm usually not a huge Will Ferrell fan. I thought it was a great idea for a movie.

I liked The Prestige as well, and I thought that there was maybe TOO MUCH plot twisting thrown into the movie. I thought that if anything, they tried to cram too much in and made the movie too convoluted. I figured out the twist at the end about 30 minutes into the movie, and it still didn't ruin it for me. I think though, that if you go back and watch the movie again, you might see a bunch of extra stuff. The movie really isn't about magic at all. Oh, and Scarlett DID look ridiculously hot.

just saw Music and Lyrics with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. Spare yourselves. Dreadful.

the night before last tried to watch master and comander - the sea flick. not bad, but it is the 3rd time I have fallen asleep in the middle. I still don't know how it ends - do the french win?

Master and Commander is one of my favourite films. It just does everything right - i's one of the few films I've seen where I have to think really really hard about it's flaws. Mind you, if I read the books, I might have a different opinion of it. I hope there is a second movie in the works.

I liked the ending a lot. The British win... sort of

Since we're on Master and Commander, one thing I've always wondered was how it was possible for cannonballs to bounce off wooden hulls. Now, I know the hull was supposed to be thicker than usual, but I remember them saying it was only an inch or so thicker. It just seems incredible that that one inch can stop a 10 pound iron ball going hundreds of miles an hour.

i liked that one, but i saw it in the the theater. it is the type of film that might not hold your attention well if you watch it at home.

i finally saw children of men and was, for the most part, disappointed. the cinematography was inspiring and i liked the story, but the dialogue and acting (likely due to the dialogue) were bad. they had the feel of a die hard or air force one.

also saw the pianist and stopped watching after about half an hour. i've seen enough holocaust films for a lifetime.

Eh... don't worry, Matador doesn't actually like movies. I think that we've determined over the course of like three years or something now that he actually only likes about three things he's ever seen.

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation blows... but thats something I don't really need to tell anyone.

I am about to go watch the worst David Fincher movie ever.

No, not Madonna: The Immaculate Collection.
Not Ladies & Gentlemen, The Best Of George Michael.
Not even Video Hits: Paula Abdul.

I'm talking about Alien 3.

Here I thought this thread would be about "Deep Throat" or other such adult films! Imagine my disappointment!
