I recently watched 'The Terminal'. Great film. But the sad thing is, it's based around a true story, except in the real one, the guy lived in the airport for 26 years!

I've been watching that recently too. Except, the main reason I watch it is because the kid with the glasses (Luke I think?) is fit. laugh.gif

I watched 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' tonight. It was pretty good, but constantly torn between its desire to be really nasty and it's Hollywood need to not be too scary, so you never really feel like any of the characters are really in much danger, which pretty much defeats the point of it all.

It had some lovely elements though, the costumes in particular are fantastic. The end credits sequence has some very nice animation too smile.gif

I'm still planning to Somehow steal that dress that Violet (Emily Browning, right?) is Wearing in that movie.

I've seen that movie. I liked it and yet I hated it all at the same time. It very much isn't in many ways, As good as the books. All they really did was put the first three books into one movie. Plus the wedding near the end was surpose to be in the begining with the first book thing and the train scene was never even in the books! But I did like some things in the movie, such as the costumes, houses, charters. (Jim Carry was a funny Count Olaf ^.^) But still in my opinion they could've done better....

Oh, If it counts as anything...I've been watching all of the happy tree friend animations... @.@

I see your point: there aren't many good pics of the outfits, this was the best I could find. 'Shame really because I thought the design was the strongest element in the film. Unlike the books, where there was an ever-present sense of threat, the film seemed to coast along without anything seeming to really bother the children.

Tonight I watched a trashy horror/cop film called 'The First Power', starring Lou Diamond Philips. It was about a cop trying to stay alive while being hunted by a serial killer that he convicted and sent to the gas chamber. The serial killer is back from the grave (spooky!) and possessing the bodies of innocents. It was actually rather fun, and occasionally managed to break out of expectations, which was rather surprising considering how generic it was. I was rather surprised that in 1990 it was still considered comic-relief to have policemen making sexist comments to policewomen, who then consider it a jolly good laugh instead of filing a sexual harassment lawsuit. It really shows how much has changed in only the last 15 years.

Yes, I enjoyed the film but did notice that it kept feeling like a producer had walked in during the filming, shaken his head and made them tone everything down to minimise complaints.

ohmy.gif You... you... mindreader, you! Not before I steal it! Muahaha!

I've been watching Jacko recently. It's one of those tiny TV shows which only last about two minutes. It's on every week night at 10 on MTV2. It's about a little man called Jacko (he's a paper cut-out) who wants to make it as a photo model but his neck is too fat. All the other characters are real people. It is very random. For examples, today it started with (in a very thick swedish (?) accent) 'I can see the bus. It is double. Is it s-s-ingle or d-double?'

As in Batman Begins? Yes, it's not bad is it? It's good to see that they've got the series back on track.

I saw 'From Hell' for the second time tonight. I saw it first in the cinema when it came out a few years ago. I enjoyed the film then, but in the meantime I've read the graphic novel so now I'm aware of just how much as been excised to try and fit the story into a film. I still liked it (if you can ever really 'like' or 'enjoy' a film about a real-life serial killer of prostitutes) but the immense depth, style, and power of the book dwarfs the cinematic version. If you've never read it then I highly recommend it!

They are rather odd, I saw a couple last night. More importantly, before that I watched the end of the latest season of 24. My goodness I love that program! Jack Bauer running around shouting 'we need to take him alive' then pumping suspects full of holes, people continually being shot, tazered, abducted, etc. then happily going on for the next fifteen hours without popping to the loo. Great stuff!

I get to see Princess Monoke again, which is an amazing film.

I've also been watching the show HOUSE a lot lately. Hugh Laurie is really good in serious roles, I think I enjoy it more in him.
Even though Blackadder is one of the best comedys in a looong time. biggrin.gif

The Big Lebowski. I liked it quite a bunch, particularly Flea. However, it was more one of those movies you appreciate more than you laugh at (if that makes any sense). Highly quotable.

Watched The Machinest this evening with Christian Bale. I thought it was very interesting, not at all what I was expecting but extremely good as a film.

I've been singing Mr Bale's praises for many many years now and I this just really confirms how adaptable he can be.

Although, in Batmans Begins I found that he made a fantastic Bruce Wayne but a terrible Batman. Surprising how a mask can make the whole difference.

Concurred. I was actually quite a fan of Batman when I saw it--I loved the Scarecrow subplot and the overall niftyness of the story. Kate Holmes has now gained a very small bit of respect for managing to come off as halfway believable in her role.

I also saw War of the Worlds today (the cinema ate all of my money!) and goggled at the special effects. Again, the plot was quite good (not that I can attribute it to the writers, though, as it's been a book, a radio drama and a movie already) but the goodness was traded at the end for utterly implausibe sap, which sounds like a ridiculous critisism considering it is an alien movie, but implausibility should never be used to achieve Disney-amimated endings. End critique.

...Sleepy Hollow and From Hell. Both Johnny Depp playing detective who falls in love with some cute chic type films... only he's squeamish and with a past in one and an opium lover in the other. Johnny Depp is love. Those were watched the past two nights. With lots of chocolate chip cookie dough chocolate ice cream. Yum. And there was Legally Blonde silliness today. Hoorah.

Only a few more days... the plan: see a late showing of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, then head over to Barnes and Noble just after midnight to pick up the new Harry Potter book (reserved, with my name on it... I'm such a loser).

I quite liked The Machinist, but I had to watch Equallibruim after to restore the hottie balance to my feelings for Christian Bale. Me, superficail? -Never *attention is drawn to a topless Justin Timberlake poster* woo *wonders off*

I've been watching Missy Elliot's Lose Control video (Dir: Dave Meyers & Missy) alot over the last week. I really like it, the bit where the people are dancing in the windy dusty place, is really energetic, and not pure booty dance, which I respect.

I remember the first Missy video that made an impact on me, it was She's a Bitch. Missy's in a blown up PVC catsuit! How great is that? And I like the fact that Missy doesn't take every oppourtunity to show skin. I think the reason that I really enjoy Missy Elliot videos so much is because they arn't your hip-hop Hype Williams style (not that I've seen any of his newer stuff. Infact I haven't got MTV, so I have't been watching _any_ music videos really). -Which was nice, and refreashing when it first came out. But it's boring now, in contrast I've found that most of Missy's videos I've seen to be more interesting, and have differant enviroment going on each time.
