If you see "Day Watch" at the store... DO NOT RENT IT.
A Russian movie with an interesting premise.
Pity the first 40 minutes make absolutely no sense.
Don't know about the rest, I couldn't stand it any more.

I have a friend who saw "Babel" when it came out in theaters. She hated it and said the movie made absolutely no sense to her because it kept going back and forth with flashbacks and she couldn't understand what was going on. I loved the movie and I had no trouble understanding it. So you really can't decide for someone else whether they should see a movie or not.

We saw AVPR this afternoon and Rush Hour 3 tonight. Eastern Promises is later tonight once we drop the other three movies off and get some Thai food.

We saw Mr. Brooks and we also saw The Simpsons. Mr. Brooks was much better than I expected. The Simpsons was much worse than I expected.

I bought mum a Monty Python cast-version of Wind In The Willows for her birthday, just to use up some extra money - it was only ten bucks. Well we watched it yesterday when we got back from the Casino Hotel for lunch. I say "watched" it rather loosely as I kept on falling asleep in it. Oh my but it was dull!!!! I suggested that my mum off-load it to someone as soon as!!! Great cast but that's the best thing about it. Well I guess it wasn't overly long either which has to be a plus on its side!!! LOL

GB, we were disappointed with The Simpsons too but even more disappointed with Benders Big Score. Both movies could have been so much more.

We watched I Am Legend last night, it was excellent. Also watched Mr. Woodcock, which was only mildly entertaining.

Bummer!!! I have that on my computer, but haven't watched it yet. I was waiting for when I needed a good laugh. At least now I know not to expect much.

Michael Clayton - Outstanding movie of substance.

Lions for Lambs - A movie so badly-made it defeated its message, despite its starpower. I don't recommend it, much as I love Redford.

No Reservations - Story was so-so. The food and kitchen visuals were great. Loved the music selection. Bought the CD soundtrack immediately. I play it now while I work in the kitchen, swinging to 'Sway' and 'Mambo Gelato' while I whip cream!

Ratatouille - I was so prepared to love this movie but was sorely disappointed. I don't mind one cute rat directing the cooking from under a toque but the sight of a rodent kitchen crew, however hardworking, was just too freaky.
