That is not an indication of how good a movie is though. People who are into it will go and see it no matter how bad it is.

I know that.

It has to do much better than that, and actors, actresses as well as the director, producers and such, to see if any of them might deserve a nomination for an award or the film itself.

Basically it must either swim or sink.

last movie I watched was "Night at the Museum"
It was only mediocore (at best). odd because my friends all seem to really like it? then again, one of my favourite movies is "Say Anything" which is kinda an old one.

Aidan was dying to go see Spiderman. We went with my fingers crossed, watched about an hour and left because it was too scary. I thought it would be but he kept insisting. Now I keep wondering what happened for the rest of the movie! I'll take him to see the third shrek soon.

Watched Pursuit of Happyness last night.
It is one of those movies that makes you hug your kids a little tighter.

We loved Night at the Museum!

And Say Anything is also a favorite of mine since I adore John Cusak and have for years, he is wonderful.

Question

Did anyone see " The Prestige "? Is anyone else confused about the ending as I am? When he told the guy to look around and he said no, I don't have to. When he was walking away there was a tank of water with someone in it. Who was it? And I didn't even recognize David Bowie at first, he sure has changed since the last time I saw him. At first I didn't think I was going to like this film but once I got into it, I really liked it. The acting and directing were excellent!!!

i **loved** bowie in that, so very nutso. and, yeah, i loved this movie in general. such a shame it came out in such a short time after 'the illusionist', people tended to mentally clump 'em together, as this one is definitely a far better movie. kind of like how everyone missed 'stir of echoes' since it was overshadowed by the other "i see dead people" movie, '6th sense'.

JoAnn, pm me if ya want to chat. anyone else who hasn't seen 'the prestige', SPOILER WARNING:

the guy in the tank of water is him (angier, hugh jackman's character). the machine doesn't just transport someone, instead, it also makes a copy. remember the identical black cats running around, and the PILES of black silk top-hats? so, literally, his copied self is drowned in that tank every night.

I did PM you but I also wanted to thank you publicly too. As I said, now every thing makes sense. It was all before my eyes and I could not see it. Thanks to you now I can. JoAnn
