Now Happy Feet was seriously cute. Rachel would LOVE it.
Thanks Alix. That is what I was afraid of.

We saw The Departed. Very good movie. It was especially fun watching it since it took place in Boston.

wow, being the crazy movie junkie i am, i have no idea how i missed this thread.

btw, for the person posting about dicaprio's turn in 'romeo + juliet' 12 or so pages ago, don't worry, that's not chris rock in there, it's harold perrineau, a respectable character actor, so it's ok. i *love* that movie. *acutal* teenagers playing the teenagers' roles.

last thing in the theater was '300', which i though was wonderful. even more beautiful than 'pan's labyrinth', though both are just incredible to watch. yes, it's violent and gory as all get-out, but it's done in a very stylized way that somehow makes it all rather beautiful. and yes, the story is fantastic, too.

latest stuff from netflix (HOW on EARTH did we live in a world where little red envelopes didn't show up routinely to bring new art to devour?) was 'stage beauty' - pretty good, better than expected actually - and 'the matador', which is utterly hilarious. imagine if james bond (funny, because pierce brosnan is playing the guy) finally had all his single-life womanizing loneliness catch up to him in late middle age. meanwhile, speaking of bond, i've really got to get around to 'layer cake'. according to netflix, it's been sitting in my house for a month because i haven't been in a shoot-em-up mood...

I watched Stranger than Fiction recently too. I really enjoyed it.

Happy Feet, I did not like. Too sad for a kid's movie IMO.

I didn't really like the Departed myself. The ending was lame I thought.

We finished watching Curse of the Golden Flower last night. Visually a good movie but it was slow, especially compared with the director's other movies, "Hero," and "House of Flying Daggers." Both were exeptional! Very visually stunning movies!

I agree about the ending. Not a great ending at all!

Illusionist opened here in Italy this past weekend, and it looks like right up my alley. I will check it out asap!!

I want to see "Charlotte's Web" too, also came out here recently, looks soooo cute...

However our video projector broke last week, so no big screen film watching for a while until it gets fixed... ugh!!

We are currently watching Fletch! Back in the day when Chevy Chase was hysterical!

Last night we watched Babel. I don't see what the big hype was about. I am glad I didn't pay to see it in the movie theater!!
