    I went to a free screening of Little Miss Sunshine today, and it was GREAT!

    Great cast all around, especially from the actress who plays the little girl Olive, she was amazing... who needs Dakota Fanning?

    Steve Carrell did a great job in this slightly more serious role.

    The events in the plot were quite out of the ordinary and not ordinary; but in terms of its entertaining value, I can't complain.

    I'd give it an A-.

    Idlewild looks pretty good, I've been waiting on it since early this year when it was SUPPOSED to come out.

    And of course...BEERFEST

    Yeah, I posted a one sheet for that in another thread. I think 2006 is officially the year of the "snake"...

    I would love to see a big budget dramatisation of the life of Lt Col Blair Mayne, but as far as forthcoming releases go, it has got to be Casino Royale.

    I think this will actually be a huge hit, both critically and commercially.

    'Slim, Black Snake was originally scheduled for a fall, 2006 release. Those plans were adjusted, after it was decided that an early 2007 opening would get more effective publicity. Christina Ricci, had to test for the part of Rae . . . nobody wanted even to consider her. She impressed the higher ups, and got the part.

    I saw it last night. Definitely worth watching.

    Saw Invincible yesterday. Yes, it follows a formula, obviously tugs at your heartstrings and I loved it!

    Unless you're a heartless bastard [​IMG] you'll be cheering for the hero and his friends.

    Great movie - I recommend it.

    The Departed, starring Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon, and directed by Martin Scorcese. It is a remake of a great, great Hong Kong film, Infernal Affairs. I doubt it will be as good as the original (when does Hollywood ever improve a foreign film?) but still should be worth watching.

    Given the director, it might be as good as the original, although Scorcese does produce some duds from time to time (or at least films that fall short of being masterworks). Also, while I liked the set-up of Infernal Affairs, I didn't think it was particularly well-acted (particularly by the guy who was the crook who went undercover as the cop - I just didn't buy his transformation). I thought the guy who went the other way was better. I also wasn't sure why they needed two different actors to represent their younger and older selves. It's not like they aged that much from the beginning of the film.

    The above are nits. I still enjoyed the movie.
