I still haven't seen Pirates but am not really bothered - need to see Kung Fu Panda 2 before it goes, same wiith Bridesmaids and Green Lantern. We don't get Cars 2 here till the week after Harry Potter - so 3 weeks...

Last two days I watched

The Old Man and the Sea - book was better
A Beautiful Mind - Loved it!
Nightwatching - weird and way too modern :?
The Matrix - I was always a bit emberrassed that I didn't see it until now, but now I'm part of the club :P
Listen.

The Matrix rocks! You'll be much happier if you don't watch the next two, BTW :wink:

Watched the first Kung Fu Panda yesterday. Better than I'd been led to believe. Also saw Bridesmaids, which wasn't bad for what it was - a female buddy movie. The flatmate was hilarious :D

Kung Fu Panda 2 wasn't as good as the first one, but I still enjoyed it...the animation was really nice too. Oh and the kids liked it which isn't quite so important. >.>

The Matrix is my favourite film. :) I don't love but I do like the sequels bs they try to do many unexpected things. Although they are a lot more cheesey and than the first and too glossy looking compared to the grit of before.

It still has loads of iconic images, mostly in 3, best bit in 2 despite the digits and chases, is the cake. I love the fight in the rain in 3, the entrance to the club, and the vision machine city and the whole ancest of Bane.

Whenever I watch them I always watch The Animatrix first as its a really cool prequel and in some ways more thought provoking than the following films.

Yeah, the Matrix is awesome. I understand that sequels = big money in this case but I didn't think this movie needed any sequels.

Well, the Matrix needed sequels to clear it all up; only they could have been better.
While Matrix Reloaded had a certain congeniality (I mean, the Keymaker (was this his name in Englisch, literal translation of Schlüsselmacher) was great and those medusa twins and the Carolingian), Revolutions was utter crap.

I'm still glad they were made,but I would like to see a remake of 2&3 with a better story line.

I'm working my way through series 1 of Enterprise. :)

I only saw a couple of episodes when it first came out and I'm enjoying it so far.

Enterprise is pretty good, once it gets set up and has a more continuing storyline it really starts rolling.

I watched The Trip (with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon) today, which was a bit long and boring. I found out it was a tv-show afterwards, probably a bit more watchable in 25-minute chunks. Just finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part I in preparation for part II soon, and I'll go and watch 'Super' now (Rainn Wilson in a kind of superhero movie).

I watched the film as 6 half hour episodes on TV, loved it. I think it maybe suits TV more. Can't wait to see Super, it's out in a few weeks here.

Super was... interesting. Reminded me of Defendor in a lot of places, but more surreal. Defendor had more heart, Super had the superior emotional ending though.
