We watched "Children of Men" last night and it was a downer, what a futile world we live in - I thought it was a depressing and sad movie, although Clive is as sexy as ever in it.

Right now, I'm watching Man on Fire, with Denzel Washington. He sure is a fine actor.
He also strikes me as a nice man.

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!

The last one I saw was Grindhouse on Friday night. I liked it! Plus I think being at the drive-in supplemented the feel of the film. It made the whole experience a million times better!

omg, CherryRed, i'm *so* jealous! the only drive-in in the baltimore/dc area isn't showing it, but here's crossing fingers that they'll fire up with 'grindhouse' sometime soon...

Road trip to upstate New York? Lol. Hopefully they'll start playing it. . . really it's the perfect film for a drive-in. They could do really well showing it there! You should write them a letter or something.

My family watched a really sweet movie Friday night called Joe & Joe. Anyone seen it? I had to get my BIL to get it for me through his netflix account, because our local rental stores don't have it. But if you come across it, I think it's worth your time. It's a modern day Cape Cod ghost story, but not at all scary or eerie. It is a liile slow, but good.
