The Bridge on the River Kwai. (movie) and Bridge over the River Kwai (novel) are both excellent.

The movie is in my all-time top 10.


I'd only seen scenes, but never the whole thing. Excellent!
Stardust

Second time seeing it. Criminally underrated, imo. Not up to The Princess Bride comparison it got when it came out, but seriously beautiful and magical. Discounting Pan's Labyrinth, a couple of Harry Potter films and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, this is the best fantasy/fairy tale movie since The Princess Bride.

Don't know that one. Do you mean The Man From Earth?
American History X....had it already on order from Blockbuster. Just had razor-sharp timing since a police office was shot and killed two nights ago in St. Petersburg.

Man, Ed Norton is such a good actor.....his voice and dialogue really pull you in.

Your heart bleeds for family of 25 year veteran on SPPD force who leaves behind a wife and two children----and for what, trying to investigate a prowler. But as the movie ends, "hate is such a waste of time".......
Starting into Season 2 of Tudors......

Not as griping as Rome, but still interesting, and sexy......ah, Court. Are modern day legislators getting so much action? Better not be!
Saw trailer for Apollo 18 on IMDB.....looks like a ripoff of Moon.

But gotta thing for sci-fi so will have to watch it once and decide.

"Sun" was very decent, although 2nd half started to stretch believability.

Please do not mention Rome... I'm still upset. Wink
So it was meant to go longer than two seasons?
Seems like with Cleopatra's and Mark Anthony's deaths, closure was natural.

It was indeed. Rome continued well after the death you mentioned. Wink

I agree completely.

Hailee Steinfeld stole the show, imo, and Jeff Bridges was great, as usual.

I thought that the writing was excellent.

I was disappointed that Josh Brolin only had about 10 minutes of screen time.

I would add that there are lots of laughs in this movie as well.
Over the last several months:
The Wire Seasons 1 thru 5- another excellent TV show no longer being made
Wallander Series 1 and 2- intriguing stuff shot with beautiful scenery. I hope Branagh does another one.
Inception- well done, will win most special effects categories at the Oscars
Social Network- good movie, but I don't get all the accolades, but I don't get Facebook either. I must be getting old, it's just time to accept it.
Jack Goes Boating- another small, well acted, albeit depressing Phillip Seymour Hoffman movie (his Directorial debut)
Let Me In- disturbing on many levels, but good because of it
Secretariat- Disneyesque
Get Low- Duvall excels again

My favorite TV series of all time. Thinking it’s almost time to watch again.
The Social Network - more entertaining than I expected. I don't "do Facebook", so thought it might be difficult to enjoy, but it was solid. The scene early-on where he offends the girlfriend was classic!
Just watched "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger"...which may be Woody's worst movie to date...remarkably, I didn't laugh once in 90 minutes!

Most critics found Whatever Works worse, but at least I chuckled a few, very few, times.

Sounds pretty much like every Woody Allen movie I ever watched.... Cool
