Just saw The Last King of Scotland, and Babel, both worth the price of admission.

just saw the movie, "Tristan and Isolde" and I agree with Macfive, it was a very good movie! In fact, I watched it twice!

I love Meryl Streep! And I so love the movie, "The Devil Wears Prada." I am most likely to buy that movie I loved it so much!

Siarls, concerning your request to send Ms Streep a card. I tried looking her up on the Imdb board for you but unless you are willing to subscribe to Imbd pro, there is no chance. If you wish to pay for the subscription, I wish you luck.

Saw the movie Ghost Rider on Friday. Was pretty good. Great special effects. Can't wait for the movie 300 to come out.

Watched Flyboys this past weekend. It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be.

Hi all,

We finally got to see Bridge to Terabithia this past week, as well as Ghost Rider. To the point, for me, Ghost Rider was a waste of money - I just didn't think much of it - not saying that the acting was bad, just that I made a mistake of judgment in going to a movie of this type.

As far as Bridge of Terabithia, I will definitely purchase this movie when it comes out on DVD and if I have time, will try to see it several more times with my family before it leaves the theaters near us. It is very close to the book of the same name that came out about 30 years ago. My wife was teaching on Long Island at the time and I remember her reading the book and liking it very much. I read it and thought it was a great book and I'm surprised that it took so long to make a movie out of it.

Without giving away anything (I already left a rating on Fandango), it's worth going to see, even if you don't have children - it deals with real emotions in a straight-forward and heartfelt manner - not a bunch of false sappiness. It's definitely worth the money to see it.

Best cheers! Robbie

Thanks for your thoughts and comments on the movies you're seeing.

I live in the suburbs of a small town and our one theatre only gets movies for a week, so if you are away or have a busy week you don't see the big name movies. I much prefer the large screen to the small, but your comments help when I head for the video store!

this was a stay in weekend so i rented two movies, one is really new and what a gas!!!!it was called "keeping mum", it's with rowan atchins(mr.bean) he plays a priest in a very small town, patrick swazy is also in it...man he did not age well sad.gif , if you get a chance you should see it.

the other movie was called "thief lord" (can you tell it was a british movie weekend!!) another excellent movie in my humble opinion!!it was listed as a children's film but it doesn't matter adults will like it as well!!

biggrin.gif Greetings Oh wise ones of the cinema!

I have read back a many a page in this topic, but I'm wondering if I might be able to request some assistance?

I have about 7 DVD rental coupons to use in the next couple of weeks and I'm wondering if you could make suggestions?

Thank you, Sisterknight for the idea of "Keeping Mum" - I do love a good comedy.

My main interest is Ireland - whether it be comedy, drama, travelogue, history - pretty much anything. I have seen the Paddy Doyle films, "The Quiet Man", "Waking Ned Devine", "Michael Collins" and a lot of TV programs that I have purchased.

I am one of the few who hasn't seen "Braveheart" yet, so that is on my list, too! I do thank any and all for suggestions! smile.gif

Both are ones I want to see. I am disappointed about ghost rider, it looks as if it would be a good movie sad.gif






I recently watched Barnyard with my kids. I thought it was cute, some adult humor. But it made me laugh!

Just got back from seing TMNT. Great movie for adults and kids!! Over the past couple of years there has been a slew of Superhero movies. Very few have stayed true to their comic book counterparts. Spiderman has been the closest and don't get me started on that last Superman film. This Turtle movie managed to stay very close to its roots and yet bring in a very decent story line. The computer animation although a bit cartoonish for the humans Casy Jones is was spot on for the turtles. Fight scenes wre almost too fast to follow which is how it should be. If you have ever done any fencing you know what I mean. Humor was kept to a miminum mostly Donnie. This is one movie series that only has disappointed me once (Turtles 2). I hope they keep this up. I would have no problem paying full price for this DVD.

gcw57- Have you seen any of the Riverdance DVD's Otherwise there is The Boys and Girl from County Clare, Irish Jam, The magical Legend of the Leprechauns (used to be War of the Leprechauns), or Angela's Ashes. On the Irish in America side there is always Far, Far Away, Gangs of New York, or In America.

smile.gif Thanks for the suggestions Roberto. I was watching Angela's Ashes this afternoon, as a matter of fact and have seen most of the others. I've not heard of "Irish Jam" but will see if I can find it available.

Strange as it seems, even to me, I really haven't seen much of the "Riverdance" DVD's. I've no idea why as I certainly enjoy watching people who can it well. I do truly appreciate you taking the time to leave a note for me.

We picked up Children of Men for our boys. They really liked it. It was thought provoking.

I am always behind in movies, simply because I do not go the theatre. Watched "The Wedding Date' this week and loved it so much I watched it twice! Really great movie!
