    I think Tom Cruise wielding a sword knocked it off our top spot. Along Came Aniston is being advertised but I'm not sure if it's on now or starts this week. Whichever it is, it's already been panned.

      It always pisses me off they make ferrets noisy in movies. Ferrets don't make sounds unless you've stepped on them or something.

      We saw Monster and it's gritty and desperate. She will get a nomination for it. I think she had a horrible life and if she really did try to get out of it like the movie shows, then it's really sad. But if that was something put in to make her sympathetic, then really I felt nothing for her.

      Of course I don't think it's okay to go killing people, but they did an excellent job showing where her rage came from.

      I thought Selby was an asshole that didn't do very much to help Aileen out and only made matters worse on several occasions.

        Friends of mine wanted to go see Along Came Polly last night. Sometimes I feel the need to re-evaluate my friendships.

        Have you noticed they've stopped playing the trailer for it where Stiller appears to have gastrointestinal distress brought on by Indian food?

        Do you know how tired of ScatHumor I am? Stick some big boobies in a movie if you really want the 11-year-old boy market, please. Enough with the poop!

          I think poop is funny but I don't like watching people make with it in movies.

          I still haven't seen any damn movies lately.
          Its just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

            Saw Good Bye, Lenin last night. I really enjoyed it.

            It's the story of a son who tries to protect his mother from the fact that while she was in a coma the world has changed around her. Go see.

              I finally saw Big Fish. I think since it was a Tim Burton movie that I was actually expecting it to be weirder than it was. And with much less crying in the theatre. It was actually really sweet.

              Ewan Love? CHECK.

                I went to see You Got Served this weekend. Hee. I that movie! I'm especially fond of the way it knows its strengths and has the characters do as little acting as possible. Besides, how can you not love a dance movie with a gratuitous boys dancing in the rain shirtless montage? Heeeeeeeee.

                  Miracle had about a dozen five-minute scenes in which Kurt Russell/Patricia Clarkson had the following fight/conversation: Her: "You care more about this game than you do about our family!" Him: "Our country needs this and I can't do it without your love and support!" By contrast, it had only one shot, less than a minute long, of the players tussling with each other in the showers. Had the director flipped those stats, the movie would have kicked ass.

                  As it stands, it was your run of the mill "underdog triumphs" sports movie, but the games and training montages ( training montages) were awesome. I forgot I was watching a movie and embarrassed the hell out of the person I went with by reacting as if I were at an actual game.

                    When I first saw the promos for Miracle it just didn't seem like something I really needed to see again (as I've seen the actual hockey game and the made for TV movie).
                    But I'm sort of on a PC movie spree right now I guess I'll see this too.
                    Oddly enough, the reviews I've read from American papers all praise it as the best thing since the actual game (while getting in their gripes about The Mighty Ducks franchise) and a lot of Canadian papers carp about the movie being hokey.

                      It's ridiculously hokey and rah rah, USA, yay! But cute boys + hockey = $ out of Roly's pockets. I was one of the eight people who saw Mystery, Alaska and it wasn't for the Russell Crowe factor.

                        Ooh - I saw Mystery, Alaska too. I remember being impressed by that Robert Crow person, too.

                          Saw School of Rock last night and loved it. Apart from the Jack Black love, my favourite part was Joan Cusack doing her Stevie Nicks dance. The kids were great, too.

                            Went to see 21 Grams today with my gay boyfriends who were having a tense moment and so there was major drama even before the film started.

                            I didn't realise until after that it's by the same director who made Amores Perros. But now that I know I can see the similarities.

                            The structure of the film, especially in the early scenes, is a bit confusing. It's a draining thing to watch.

                            Sean Penn is brilliant and so is Benicio del Toro, but I'm reserving judgment about Naomi.

                              We saw 21 Grams today too! I always enjoy Sean Penn, I liked Naomi as well and, seeing Benicio is my screen boyfriend, I loved him. The premise was a bit different to the usual fare so I really, really liked it.

                                Went to see Big Fish last night too - it was great. I loved it. It just made me smile all the way through - at least, once I got over Ewan's BAAAAAD accent. I don't know if it was bad or whether it was just too damn odd hearing him talk that way.

                                Didn't feel empathetic towards Crudup AT. ALL. though I don't know if that's because of the MLP Baby thing. Heh. There are no borders between real life and movies in my head I guess. Reasons why I still will watch anything with Susan Sarandon and nothing with Tom Cruise.
