Today, my friend & I saw in 3D Ice Age 4, Continental Shift. A good film, I thought as good as the three before, imaginative plot, good casting, well animated & new characters introduced with the original ones.
We had a great time, despite the little darlings in front of us, one directly in front of me who kept peering around the seat she was sitting in. Previously she had been sitting on the back of the one in front of her. Charming child!!!!!! :angry-nono: :eusa-whistle: :angelic-halofell: She did sit properly when the film started, but Oh! the mess the Family left behind when the film finished. :o :naughty:
Best wishes,
Tiff

Watched Mirror Mirror a couple of nights ago. Thought it was cute! It did help that we found out it was a family friendly movie, so were able to adjust our expectations. It seemed really familiar though, like I'd seen it before.

Didn't Disney make a film based on the story a few years back . . . :lol:

I always thought "Snow White: a Tale of Terror" was a seriously underrated version. Sigourney Weaver was brilliant in it.

I've found and watched all 14 of the Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce Sherlock Holmes movies and I enjoyed every one. Rathbone is just brilliant as Holmes and while Bruce's Watson is a bit far from Doyle's he plays such a lovable buffoon that you can't dislike him: it'd be like kicking a puppy. The first two were set in late Victorian times but in the third they updated him into the forties. I was suprised that only 3 of the films had heavy handed wartime propaganda, because that was most of what I remembered, but the rest were regular crime mysteries with some action/adventure and a dash of deadly peril.

you can download that one legit (as far as I know) from this page:

I always considered Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as the best Sherlock Holmes adaptations until Jeremy Brett and David Burke/Edward Hardwicke came along. :D

And I'd always assumed that Conan Doyle had written Watson as a lovable buffoon. :lol:

Definitely not confusing it with the Disney version! :lol: Haven't seen The Huntsman yet, so it can't be that. Never knew there was a TV series! Dotsie, I think the movie you mentioned is available through Netflix streaming. I'll definitely give it a try.
