"The Illusinoist (sp?)". The inspector smokes (really smokes) a pipe. And has a beard. Beautiful movie.

Groundhog Day - last night after work. First time in months that I've sat down and watched an entire movie from beginning to end without interruptions.

Last movie watched was one I own. SABOTAGE starring Sylvia Sidney and Oscar Holmolka. Directed by the master, Alfred Hitchcock. In the theater, the last seen was NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM, an amusing piece of fluff w/ a lot of special effects. Interesting to compare the two. A bare bones early work from a genius without even music to set the mood; just a good story, good acting and incredible camera work, compared to what the public will spend money to see now days. No comparison.

what'd you think of pan's labyrinth?

It was intersting... I liked it. Was not what I was expecting... I thought the violence was kind of over the top in parts... but then again it was a fairy tale (of sorts). Overall, I thought it was good... but not great/amazing like many critics seemed to think.

All the "24"s. My wife and I pretty much ignored the hype until this past December when my son and his wife visited from Fla and began to rave about the series. So, needless to say we went out and rented disc 1 of season 1. Today, we're midway into the 3rd season and can't wait until we get disc 4! Some of you have wondered where I've been off to. Well, that's where. My evenings are sucked up (literley) with 24s. The only reason I'm logging on now is that my wife is off to some cock-a-maney Mary Kay thingy spending my hard-earned pipe money and has DEMANDED I not go on without her. ARRRGHH.....

She's very good in it.

Last night I watched the original 1954 Creature from the Black Lagoon in 3D at our local cinema. Fantastic! Got a round of applause at the end, unusual for us reserved Brits...

And what did you think?

For me, last movie was "The Lake House". Watched it tonight with the wife. We both enjoyed.

I liked it. I thought it brought home the reality of spiritual warfare and precisely who we are in combat with, but it still left room for the sceptic to remain sceptical. Also, the priest was portrayed as a priest, and not a slobbering pervert child molester or a religious fanatic.

Saw Superman Returns on DVD recently. Must say I was bored almost to sleep. It was like somebody forgot to edit the movie.

Totally agree; what a horrible waste of celluloid.

We watched "Fellowship of the Ring" this weekend. My wife had never made it past the scene where the dark riders were chasing Arwen and Frodo and she flushed them with the river horses.

Now that we are reading the books, she was actually interested in watching the movie. We, more importantly she, watched the entire thing.

It was a true milestone.

"Children of Men". It's a pretty depressing view of the near future, but just a phenomenally well done movie. It will be added to my DVD collection when it becomes available, though it might be at least a year before I'm ready to see it again.
