Burn after reading - weird, but enjoyable, yeah, good, but I think it's my least favourite Coen Bros film.
The scent of a woman - was planning it for a long time, and I wasn't dissappointed :wink: Like this one
Sleuth (the Caine-Law version) - which was more a theatre piece than a movie, but still good, only WHERE WAS THE ENDING? It was just getting interesting and that was it! Seen the original with Caine as the young guy and Laurence Olivier as the older, it's excellent, haven't seen this one though, but apparently it's not as good
Rippley's Game - my first Rippley movie, maybe not the best choice and John Malkovich was... I don't know, there was something about him that was just not right...Of the series I've only seen The Talented Mr Ripley, which was good, but didn't love it
The Big Lebowski - genious!
I agree - 'nobody %*@ks with the Jesus!'I think that was it :wink:

Adding Billy Elliot to the list: it was really good, but I couldn't really decide whether it was rather a happy movie or a depressing one (broke my heart when they killed the piano :( )

Even the rain. Meh. Predictable and borish all around.

Rango. :D :D Hes a chameleon!!! Pretty nice.

Hang over 2. Not funny as first one. More gross jokes. Not liked.

Watched Black Death with Sean Bean. Not so great.

i thought it was ok, but very grim and depressing. Good but gory fight scenes.

I watched Transformers 2 yesterday, in preparation for part 3 today.

2 was so bad I almost skipped out on 3, but I went anyway and was presently surprised.

Watched Pirates of the Caribbean III.

While I still like the first one best (haven't seen IV, yet), I really enjoyed the third one.

Still odd:

I hated the second pirates movie but did like the third too. We're a minority though :)

On the spoilery bit:

Saw Pirates IV yesterday, wasn't too bad.

The second pirates movie was by far the worst, the third wasn't that bad :wink:

I found the second one was OK. The CGI of the kraken was piss poor in places, though.

:( We're having such a hard time getting out to the theater and there's so much we want to see! If we don't get out soon we'll miss POTC. I also want to see Green Lantern and Cars 2. Missed Thor and X-Men.
