Thursday we went to see Eragon with the family (eleven in all). We all thoroughly enjoyed it (ages from 56 to 7).

Has anyone seen We are Marshall?. Looks like it would be a good one.

Hi BluegrassLady,

Sounds like you really liked it - I just received the books (Eragon & Eldest), but have decided to see the movie first before reading either of them. I'm not sure if you read Eragon before seeing the movie, but when I bought the books, Amazon had a fairly good deal - a "boxed hardbound edition" of Eragon & Eldest for $26USD, which included the packaging and post - not too bad!

Thanks so much for your review and post!

Have a very happy New Year!

Best cheers! Robbie

The new Fantastic Four trailer is online. Shows alot of the Silver Surfer. Think liquid terminator on a surfboard. Very cool. Hope the movie doesn't bomb. Second Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle trailer also online. Very funny.

I just saw the movie Beowulf & Grendal. Gerard Butler plays in it along with Stellan Skarsgard. If you like trowls and swords you'll like it. Can't say anymore or it will ruin the story... Its out to rent now.

I finally bought "Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire" on DVD yesterday and watched it last night. I like the HP movies and the books equally. If I was one of those people on the HP fansites who whine about the movies not following the books to a T, I would've been disappointed. But I've never been a stickler for strict adherence to anything.

Hi Mike and all,

First, I just saw Eragon and thought it was very good - however, like I posted a while back, I purposely did not read the book first, but chose to see the movie instead. The special effects are outstanding - I also thought it was quite interesting to have the dragon speak with what sounded like an American accent while all those around her spoke the Queen's English. Hmmm.... perhaps they imported a State-side dragon for filming? wink.gif

To address something that Mike brought up, I am, unfortunately, one of those "whiners" who complain about how far the movies have left the books - however, I only whine to my wife about it, and since she doesn't like HP, it pretty much falls on def ears... My take on the HP movies are that the first two were close to 65% close to the book - the third was nearly 45-50% and the last one was about 33%. I do know that I would have certainly liked the movie more if I had read the book afterwards.

Went to see "Pan's Labyrinth" with a friend I never knew was squeamish about violence, although I've seen many movies with him. He was half under the seat about 20 times. Parents -- this is a gorgeous, difficult, harrowing, traumatic fantasy film. It is NOT for kids. DO NOT bring anyone under the age of about 14 or 15. Check a good review to see if it's for you.

All that said, it's quite amazing. Visually incredible in a dark, grotesque way, wonderful acting, gripping double story line. But again, traumatic.

Hi stoirmeil,

I just went to the official Pan's Labyrnith site (http://www.panslabyrinth.com/) and you are 100% correct, this isn't for kids!!! sad.gif

The only review I saw was written by the Los Angeles Times and it said what I quoted you as saying - this is not for the faint of heart! It does, however, give a very good insight to what war and torture look like to a child with an imagination.

Thanks for the review - it's playing not too far from where I am and I might be brave enough to see it. wink.gif

I've just seen Eragon too. Loved Saphira's design and of course Rachel Weisz did a great job of voicing her. But as far as "dragon" movies go Dragonheart was still the best IMO.

I'm hoping to catch We Are Marshall this weekend...been watching the previews for weeks and every time I see it I'm wiping away tears. I only hope this is one movie where all the good material isn't in the preview.

Finally caught "Lady in the Water". I remember when I was seeing the trailers, I was thinking it was going to be some kind of light horror/suspense flick, and not normally something I would like. Yet at the same time, something seemed interesting about it.

I'm glad to say, that it was a lot more the fantasy film I have a weekness for, and a lot less what I was expecting. Now, it's not the best fantasy I have ever seen by any means. There are a few moments I thought were downright weak. But overall, I found the film to be rather enchanting. I'm considering the idea of watching it again before it's due back.

Hi CR I'm new I just started posting, I saw the trailers for Eragon and it looks like a D & D type Harry Potter movie. A few scifi fans say it was more of a family sci fi type of movie. It looks adventerous.

Happy New Year,
Chris From Nebraska

I love Shyamalan's work, but I too thought it wasn't terribly strong in places. It was based on a running bedtime story he was telling his own kids, and he lost sight of the gap between the sweet, intimate kind of home experience of that and what's needed to sell a story to the public.

But visually, I really loved it, and the performances were so strong it was well worth overlooking any other kinds of problems.

I know that I am way behind, but we watched Eight Below this weekend. Loved it. It was a wonderful movie, but I did go through alot of tissue. crybaby.gif Have to have Eight Below for my collection. We also watched Pirates of the Caribean Dead Man's Chest. We enjoyed it also. Also watched Eric Clapton's Crossroads. If you like Blue's music you will like this.
