Hi all,

I just saw the trailer for this today, but the movie "Bridge to Terabithia" looks interesting (http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1809420332/trailer). It's set to open on February 16 where I live - if I go, I'll let you know how it is...

Another movie - which looks totally lame - but also pretty funny, is "Epic Movie", which will be released next week. I normally don't watch movies like this, but sometimes it just feels good to watch something that I don't have to think about to understand biggrin.gif

Have a good week!


--------------------
Best cheers! Robbie

I have been watching a lot of movies lately............while cleaning and cooking. Nevertheless, these are the ones I have seen:

Nanny McPhee--- very delightful family film
Munich ----------- watched it three times. I so loved this film, but very violent.
Hope Floats...............with Sandra Bullock and Harry Connick, Jr. Great chick flick!
Cheaper By the Dozen 2.........very nice, positive family film
Dunstan............about an oragatan and two young boys who live in an exclusive hotel. Very cute and postive.
In America............about an Irish family who comes over from Ireland seeking a better life. Very depressing but outstanding film.
The Family Stone..........Diane Keaton, Sara Jessica Parker. Holiday movie and really good.
Elizabeth I..........not historically accurate, but really loved this film

There is a new Irish film coming out inn March of this year called "The Wind that Shakes the Barley". Reviews have put it in contention for the Oscar for 2008 already. It would have been in for this year but the release date was two late. Here is the story line from the Irish Gazzette:

The quiet man of British filmmaking, Ken Loach, triumphs again with this award-winning portrayal of the Black and Tan War in Ireland and the tragic civil war that followed.

Damien and Teddy Donovan (played respectively by Cillian Murphy and Liám Cunningham) are brothers caught in the 1920 war of independence and its aftermath. Screenwriter Paul Lav erty adds real-life drama to the action with a re-enactment of an ambush described in Tom Bar ry’s famous book “Guerrilla Days in Ireland.” The terror caused by the Tans is palpable, as are the heart-clawing lifeanddeath decisions taken by ordinary citizens turned by events into dedicated freedom fighters. No heroic gloss or romantics here; even Damien’s love interest (Orla Fitzgerald) displays a hard-edged desperation void of the “sweet colleen” cliché.

Loach’s almost documentarystyle of filming has investigated civil strife before: “Carla’s Song” (set in Nicaragua), “Land and Country” (about the Spanish Civil War), and “Hidden Agenda” (an exposé of the Thatcher government’s “shoot to kill” policy in Northern Ireland.)

Sounds like a great film! Thanks for sharing, Roberto!

Oops! forgot! Watched movie called "Swordfish" with John Travolta and Hugh Jackman last night. I found it to be a really silly film.

Also watched "A History of Violence" with Viggo Mortensen. Very good, but kind of wierd film. Very violent, but I did enjoy the film despite it all.

Hi all,

I left a brief post on this movie on another forum, but my wife and I saw The Painted Veil on our 32nd wedding anniversary. My wife had read a review saying that it had a "happy ending". Well, yes, overall it is a sort of happy ending, but not the whole movie - the husband doesn't make out too good, so I would not recommend it as a "happy anniversary, dear!" movie biggrin.gif

Other than that, I think I'll wait for the Bridge to Terabithia in two or so weeks.

Watched "Open Season" today. Alot funnier than I thought it would be. The scottish squirrel was hilarious. Alot more semi hidden adult humor than "Over the Hedge" or the other computer animated animal movie that I liked but can't remember the title of.

Watched

"Le Divorce" with Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts. Pretty good and learned somewhat about French culture.

"Two for the Money" with Al Pacino and Matthew McConnahay (?spelling) -- waste of my time.

Wondered about "Tristan and Iosolde." I love period movies so must see that one as well! Thanks, MacFive!

The most recent movies that I rented were Cars and The Illusionist.

Cars was pretty standard Disney fare, but lacked the magic of the older Disney movies.

The Illusionist was an interesting movie that was very well made - even if the outcome was somewhat predicable.

My last to visit to the Theatre was to see The Queen. I think Helen Mirren will have a new statue for her mantle after the Academy Awards!

"Little Miss Sunshine." Really cute movie and loved it.

"The Devil Wears Prada." Reminded me much of the current TV series, "Ugly Betty" Still very good and Meryl Streep was excellent! She deserves any award she gets from this film. Very much loved this film!

I got to see Blood Diamond. It really opened my eyes to the diamond market. I thought it was a good movie a bit bloody. I wouldn't take young children to it. I thought Leonardo Dicaprio did a good job of acting in it as did the others.

I've heard only good things about Blood Diamond. The South African accent is perfect according to a friend from Johannesburg. Not usually a fan of DiCaprio though.

I tell you who I do love - Meryl Streep. Bought The Devil Wears Prada on Monday and have watched it ten times since (eek - should be doing uni work).

By the way, how would I go about sending Ms. Streep a good luck card for the Oscars? Anyone know?
