Just finished watching I'm a Cyborg, brilliant, brilliant film. Funny, very moving and just excellent. The cutaway fantasy sequences reminded me of The science of Sleep, but scenes with Young-g spitting bullets are just genius.

Tried watching "Shattered Glass" last night. I fell asleep about 10 minutes in though. Will try and rewatch again soon.

Good. It deserves another attempt. I remember watching in in class back in the day. It didn't shake me to my core or anything. But it did make me wanna find the real Stephen Glass and give him a wedgie.

That's a great film, right there. Another underrated John Huston film that you may like is "˜The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean' with Paul Newman.

Just watched The Reader last night. Great movie. I think it's the one Winslet won the oscar for--oh and she's nekkid a lot for those that are a fan.

I've heard about that one but I haven't seen it. I'll watch it. Thanks.

DK, is "I'm a Cyborg" just as good and heartwarming as that movie Shower (1999)? I REALLY liked Shower.

The last three movies I saw were:

The Hurt Locker - decent movie but it didn't impress me too much
Ponyo - cute overload but a rather weak story
Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown - Almodovar light

I REALLY liked Shower.

I've not seen Shower, but the review of it sounds excellent.

I'm a Cyborg is brilliant, very visual and stylish, a lot of scenes like in The science of sleep, but better. It is very heartwarming indeed, very funny in parts too. One of my favourites of the last few years already

I bought The Savages on DVD but didn't get the chance to watch it til now. I like it. Laura Linney did deserve that last-minute sneak-in of an Oscar nomination a few years back.

No movie other than ones directed by Kurosawa have ever made me cry, ever. But Shower teared me up and made me come pretty close. I saw it long ago and forgot most of it, I need to re-rent it.

Even the most tear wrenching film, barely gets me blinking usually. With past girlfriends I had to secretly stick pins in my leg to irk out a tear, as they thought I was dead inside.

However The Diving bell and the butterfly teared me up and made me come pretty close.

I may watch some Kurosawa as a challenge.

Just watched On Her Majesty's Secret Service

Enjoyable, but not sure I like Lazenby's Bond
