Saw "Henry Poole Is Here" this weekend. Good film, the kind that doesb't get made much any more...brings into question the existence of God (And we can't have that!). Give it a good solid B+.

Anyone seen "Bottle Shock" yet?

KSC02, required to see soon. Excellent shots of Spain, lots of wine drinking, LOTS of serious Expressionist Art, wonderful Spanish guitar, AND beautiful women staring in the movie! Cool

I can not wait until next Spring.


Eek Penelope Cruz?! Gotta be worth seeing, if not just for her! Wink

Saw the trailor. Looks good. Thanks for the heads up. I will be sure to see this soon. Smile
Not to mention Scarlett Johannson. Props to fellow hab Ryan Reynolds, Scarjo is one hell of an upgrade from Alanis Morissette. Cool

Yep. BIG pass. DVD at best, and just for the unintended comedy value.
Charlie Wilson's War - not high art but thoroughly entertaining and educational.

How can you not like the performance of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Tom Hanks is always enjoyable and Julia Roberts - what can you say?

On deck - There Will Be Blood
totally agreed, and the "real" story shows he was even stupider( Big Grin) than the onscreen version. hard to imagine. but it did make one fine film. one of my favorites that year.

last night: the dead girl. i thought it was pretty good for something that went completely under my radar. Confused

Flawless: With Michael Caine and Demi Moore. Quite good actually. A diamond heist movie based in London in 1960.

Always brilliant. I also always enjoy Forest Whitaker.

I thought this was fantastic, but a lot of my friends were bored by it. Hope you enjoy it. You menionted Phillip Seymour Hoffman. I feel the same way about Daniel Day-Lewis. His performance in this movie is very impressive, and in my opinion, quite powerful.
Our last two have been stellar ( Elegy & Vicky,Christina Barcelona) and now looking for the trifecta. Cool

What does the forum recommend?
Saw Dark Knight at the movies. Well worth the money.
Watched Lord Of War on Netflix. Surprisingly good movie.
Also watched Green Fingers. Clive Owen and Helen Mirren; it was utterly predictable but fun.
i have high hopes for "burn after reading". i think i have a screening of it on tuesday. will let ya know then.

I thought this was better then super troopers ...

Meow.

Super Troopers had its moments. The maple syrup chugging scene for example. Big Grin

Last night I treated to the kids to back-to-back showings of
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
and
Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey
The first was clearly superior. Wink Popcorn

and Super Troopers is WAY better than Beerfest.

I liked King of California, but I was shocked at how skinny and wasted Michael Douglas looked in it. I hope he just did that for the role.

I assume the look was for the roll, he fit it well. He really impressed me, I never really gave him credit but that was some acting.

The girl was very good as well.

Damn fine film. I was surprised it didn't do better at the box office.
Saw "The Band's Visit" --
Story about an Egyptian police band lost in Israel.
Largely in English, but when it switches to Hebrew or Arabic there are subtitles, of course.
A wonderful movie....sentimental, funny, warm, clever. All wrapped into 90 minutes or so.
Netflix.
I recommend this.
