Brothers Bloom It was weird, I was thinking it was a comedy but....

Che part 1 only, good war movie.


I thought "The Brothers Bloom" looked good on the previews, but when I went to see it in the theater, it was a terrible let-down! Previews made it look like a comedy all the way


Latour, I still liked the movie and it had its moments. But it was weird.


Saw Che Part 2. I enjoyed the first part better.

So am I.

I also felt that it ruined the second season because they squeezed too much in and cut 2 episodes off the back end. Mad

Also, I don't think Purfoy or McKidd have gotten roles as good as their characters in Rome. That is a shame.


Ditto all of this!

Eek I


Sorry! I meant to say: Eek I'm somewhat surprised they would show the taking of anything today on a commercial airline flight!


Latour67, every seat had it's own private screen.

The Ethan Hawke version of Hamlet with my seniors. It is so very, very bad.


Why not the Kenneth Branagh version? I was a junior in high school and had just read Hamlet when Branagh's version came out and I really liked it.

His Henry V is outstanding as well.

Actually, I'm a huge fan of his, in general, and have been from a very early age. When I was 12 years old I bumped into the girl I had a crush on at the video store. She told me I had to rent Dead Again. I HATED and was freaked out by scary movies, but I couldn't let Rachel know! So I rented it, and watched it thinking she might ask me about it in school... and I loved it. I've been a fan of his (and Emma Thompson's) ever since.

Speaking of... I haven't seen Dead Again in years... perhaps it is time to re-visit...

My wife has a thing for Branagh, and Dead Again is one of her favorites.


It is an excellent movie. It is the first movie I can recall seeing where I watched it as a piece of art and had true appreciation of the direction and acting.

So... your wife is an HP fan and a fan of Branagh's? Anglophile, or mere coincidence? Wink

A couple reasons - 1. the Branagh version is too long and takes too much class time. 2. the Hawke version is so bad, that it makes for great essay fodder.
