GB & urmaniac, make sure you go check out 'the prestige'. unfortunately came out within a month or so of 'the illusionist', so there was a random glut of period-costume magician dramas, and some people got 'em all confused. i liked 'the illusionist' a lot, thought it was very pretty, but definitely more style over substance. 'the prestige', imho, was a far better movie, easily one of my faves of last year.
redkitty, now that you've rocked out on 'casino royale', go grab 'layer cake', which is supposedly the movie that got daniel craig the bond role. it'd been sitting at my house for a month, because i wanted to watch it, but just wasn't feeling up to a super-violent british gangster shoot-em-up. got around to it last night, and wow! nowhere near as violent as i'd been led to believe, but boy did it live up to the hype. really good movie!
