I watched Miss Potter the other day - very gentle film but happy/.sad as well.

You had no idea what the motivations of some of the characters were. The format was also very annoying. You keep watching the same thing over and over which in theory might have been a good idea, but in practice it got very old very quick.

tried to watch "the good shepard" last night. was struggling with it, and the power went off. it was off bout an hour. then i no longer had the interest which was tenuous at best.

I saw The Piano - saw it when it came out in '93, such a powerful film - Holly Hunter is a superb actress ... and her playing aptitude made me catch my breath... a film I think I would own...

Interesting movie but I thought the acting was terrible. Nice story otherwise, although I wanted to see more mammal scenes. They were awesome.
I enjoyed 1,000,000 Years BC with Raquel Welch better.....


I watched In Bruges last night. Interesting story about two hitmen set in a beautiful town in Belgium.
