No kidding he was terrible. You would think they would at least make him work on the accent a little more.

I honestly haven't seen Gary Oldman give a bad performance. He is one of my favourites.

Alas, no movies this weekend, but I think my "daughter" is coming over tonight for "27 Dresses". We haven't had a good girl's movie night in months.

27 Dresses was so cute!

Last night we went to the theatre to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It was really really funny! Couple times I laughed so hard I couldn't breathe!

Next, Iron Man....can't wait to see it!

Finally saw the Kite Runner, have been wanting to see this for a long time. It had its flaws, and I couldn't emphasize with the main character completely (both for his personality and for the lack of charisma of the actor who played the role), the supporting roles were excellent, his father, Shaun Toub who played the sympathetic family friend, and especially the boy who played Hassan, the best childhood friend of the main character. And the scene of Afghanistan before the tragic destruction was beautiful.
It was too rushed at the ending, bringing his troubled nephew out of the country and adopt should have involved so many complications, which was completely skipped.
It made me want to read the book certainly though.

Iron Man was awesome!!! Just got home from seeing it and I can't wait till it comes out on dvd so I can watch it again! The role was made for Robert D. Jr. The boy read that Jon Favreau was persistent with the studios that he wanted only him for the role.
