1. Get Smart- I thought it was very funny, and was pleasantly surprised in a few places.
2. Billy Elliot- I am hooked on this movie, every time it comes on my TV automatically changes channels. I love the dancing and the story. The soundtrack is great!
Ooh, I want to see Get Smart. I like everyone in it.
And I loooove Billy Elliot. Do you know the musical? :) If you like the movie you may love the musical.
Havent seen either of those movies
1. A while ago National Treasure 2 and i loved it. I think mainly be/c i love the characters, as the plot was pretty similar to the first. But i love Riley hes so dang cute.
2. Twelve Monkeys. I think its a really interesting movie with a few good twists. And it doesnt end up with everything gonna be ok. Its nice to see that every once in a while in a movie. I enjoyed watching it play out.
Ooh, I've been wanting to see that film! I liked the first one.
I've never seen Twelve Monkeys, but I just may have too now.
Theatre - Kung Fu Panda - Really fun to watch.
See it with a kid, definitely!
Last one on tv that was new to me was Forrest Whitaker in A Little Trip to Heaven, which was really good. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0420740/
We watched Ratatouille, Babe, and Some Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest last night, which I have seen before. We watch the first two often, actually. My son loves them.
OOH! Kung Fu Panda was REALLY good!! A lot better then I had expected it to be.
And I've never heard of A Little Trip to Heaven but it sounds like a film I'd like. Definitely going to check it out.
You know, in England we call a theatre somewhere you go to see a play or musical and a cinema where you see a film.... and we spell it differently too!
I last saw 'Step up 2 the Streets' at the cinema.It was ok, I expected it to be more like 'Fame', but it wasn't....Good dancing though.
I saw half of Disney's 'The Strongest Man in the World' the other day on TV!
I have to admit that I recorded the rest of it so that I could see how it ended!
I always spell theatre theatre. Regardless if it's cinema or live productions. I find it more aesthetically pleasing. lol
I haven't even heard of this film but I loooved fame. ;) I want them to do another tv series of it, but modern. It would be awesome.
And I haven't heard of The Strongest Man in the World. Who's in it?
He's amazing. I hve no issue with awards being given posthumously. ESPECIALLY in this case!
And aww. I love the Spider Pig song. :)
1.) The Dark Knight. Holy oh my God, it was amazing and brutal and crazy. I walked out of the theater feeling like I had just been punched. I don't even have words to describe it.
2.) I saw a few minutes of The Abyss last night after TDK and it was kind of dumb. The moral of that movie is "don't fuck around in submarines."
Amazing though right? A good punch?
And ooh. I haven't seen that one. I may avoid it now. lol
1.sex and the city. LOVED it
2. dirty dancing... for the millionth time, loved it. hehe
Looove Dirty Dancing, and REALLY wish I could see sex in theatres, but I'll have to wait for the dvd, I guess.
I love that icon! *steals*
1. The Dark Knight. I have to completely agree with everything you said. Ledger's acting was incredible--completely convincing psychotic character without being stereotypical. I couldn't make it mesh in my mind that the guy I was watching on the screen was actually Heath Ledger.
2. I don't have any idea. I watch so little TV that it's probably been months since I watched a movie on TV.
Agreed entirely. He was incredible.
And wish I watched less tv. especially less childrens tv. Including Spongebob which is on right now. Again. lol. *sigh*
I really enjoyed Wall-E too.
1. WALL-E. I loved it. I saw it twice. :-) It was very good. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone.
2. I have no idea. It's been so long. I barely ever watch TV in the first place.
1: Ironman, excelent flick, which I don't often say about comic book movies. So good I saw it twice. Robert Downy Jr. certainly knows how to play half dead well, wonder how that could be? ;) seriously the movie was just plain fun, and that I think is rare.
2: the wicker man, the original 70's version. Now I can understand why it would be scary then, wicka and paganism were not really well know practices, and it could be construded as dark and evil, whie being christian was still totally ok, maybe not totaly but more so than the others. However today it's completely dated, and funny to the point its sad. The policeman runs around being a stereotype of conservative christian valuse to the point that I got sick of watching it, didn't even finish the damn movie. I hope they killed his ignorant ass.
I have not seen either of these. May check them bout out now, ust out of curiosity.
1. Hancock. It was like, decently action-y but...towards the end it got all like, what the heck? random. :D
2. oh dear. Haha, umm. Big Trouble in Little China, which was actually playing on cable or something. It was weird. But we rented The Brave One, which was absolutely way cool, I definitely recommend it if you like watching Jodie Foster kick butt.
Well I like Random, so maybe it'll be right up my alley. ;)
The Brave One was good then? I've sure heard some varying reports on that film. Next time it's on cable I'll check it out.
1. American Gangster- It was entertaining. But I'd made the mistake of watching a documentary on the real Frank Lucas and, um, well, he's no Denzel. Denzel played him with class!
2. American Gangster- I originally saw it with my girlfriends on a trip we took to Virginia. My husband has been wanting to see it so I watched it again with him, on the tv. See #1
for my thoughts.
aha, that's awesome! =)
And Denzel rocks.
1. The Dark Knight
HOLY FUCK BALLS is my only response.
Good holy fuck balls, I hope? ;)
He was so incredible.
And I have mixed feelings ont at version of Midsummer's. But could be my dislike for Flockhart.
1. I saw the midnight preview of the dark knight on thursday. Thought it was AMAZING....."want to see a magic trick?"
2. The X-Files, saw it was on tv so i watched it to get ready for the new one...even though they have nothing to do with each other.
He was So great.
And I'm so excited for the new one.
The last movie in the theater I saw was Hancock. I give it a 3 out of 5. Good acting, but not so good storyline... It was just "odd". But Will Smith still entertains, nonetheless.
Last movie I saw on TV/DVD was Batman Begins (in preparation for the new Dark Knight movie that I've yet to see). I loved it! Very good movie.
Aww, Batman begins roooocks. Not as much as the new one though. Man.
And I haven't been able to see Hancock yet. May wait for it to come on cable.
1) Hellboy II. I'm a fangirl, so I recommend it to everyone as a fun cute love story with monsters.
2) The last movie I saw broadcast on TV was 10 Things I Hate About You, which wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. The last movie I saw on the TV (I love my Netflix) was A Dirty Shame, which was campy, slightly shocking, and highly entertaining, and the special features on the DVD were even better.
That's out all ready? *blink*
And I loooved A Dirty Shame!
1. What was the last film you saw in the theatres? What did you think of it?
Also TDK - also thought it was brilliant, one of my new favorite films ever.
2. What was the last film you saw on tv? What did you think of it?
High School Musical. I didn't hate it as much as I wanted to. But it was still dumb.
Ooh I have not been able to watch that all the way through, yet. HSM. Hmm. My neice adores it but it all ready annoys me so much.
Movies! That's MY shtick!
1. Dark Knight. Adored it. I love Christopher Nolan already (Memento is an all-time favorite) and while Begins was a good Nolan-does-an-action-film, Dark Knight was a true Christopher-Nolan-film. The action was good and hectic but the best part is the complex moral structure of the movie.
2. Last Temptation of Christ. Didn't live up to my expectations but it was good. The subject matter was edgy, but the film's style wasn't, I didn't think. The performances are brilliant, though.
It was sooo good
I have never read or seen The Last Temptation, but have a few friends that just adore it so I really must one of these days.

1. Also The Dark Knight. Fantastic movie! I was expecting a pretty good movie, but...wow. All-around great acting. Good plot. Just great! Will definitely add it to the collection.
2. Cleaner. A suspense movie where a crime scene cleaner is called in to clean a scene and finds out it wasn't a legit scene. Pretty good.
I thought it was incredible.
-- And I have not seen that film yet. The Professional is my favorite hitman film. :)
My 1. is the same as you. We saw it Saturday night. EXCELLENT.
2. "Get Carter". I kinda only half-watched it though, D & I were napping somewhere towards the end. Stallone speaks INCREDIBLY well in that movie for some reason. :)
interesting. That's not a Stallone practice generally. lol
I heard that when the king heard the finale to the Messiah, Hallelujah, he stood up. Now it's tradition that you must always stand when it is performed.
1.) Dark Knight.. .I agree with you 100%
2.)We Are the Titans. I love that movie. Unfortunately i read up on the real events and it kinda made me lose the magic of the story.. but just a bit.
Oh that's sooo cool! =)
And I have not seen that other movie yet. Need too.
I dunno if I would call it his masterpiece, as he has written so many amazing pieces, but oh well!
I like Wassermusik the best.
Movies...I can't even remember the theater one, but on TV I saw Hot Fuzz, and it was HILARIOUS. Although the end just went WAY overboard, which was the point.
Oh Hot Fuzz is incredible. =)
And Good point. His talent was boundless.
