We recently watched "Next" with Nicolas Cage. I thought it'd be a cheesy Cage movie but it was really good. Not cheesy in the slightest. I recommend it.

Yep, saw "Borat" and wondered what the fuss was about. Pretty much a waste of time.

However, my youngest brother gave me "Somewhere in Time," and I was transfixed. It is an older movie (about 1980) but it is enjoyable. There is no violence (unlike so many of today's films), no crappy language, no sexual mess, no slugging violence (save for a scene where the main character is abducted).

The costumes, scenery and music are delightful. I watched it this afternoon and enjoyed my afternoon. I almost wanted to be in the "hotel" in which it was supposed to have taken place.

Somewhere In Time???? Is that the one with Christopher Reeves? Awesome flick, and a bit of a mind bender with who is who’s grand-parent! Loved it!

Yes, keltin, it was the Christopher Reeve film. Really great. It's one I will watch again. So good.

I turned off Borat 30 minutes in. Crude, idiotic and boring.

I saw Somewhere in Time probably 25 years ago. Thought it was romantic and enchanting.

i liked borat.

i mean, it was the same stupid set of jokes for too long, but i love to see otherwise secure people squirm when presented with such blatant nonsense and rudeness.
