Took my wife to Harry Potter and the Side Order of Phoenix on Sunday. An okay flick but I am just spoiled by the books. Noticed that Ron is getting less and less screen time.


I am eagerly awaiting the new Disney movie "Enchanted". As we watched the preview my wife commented that, this is a Disney movie the way I would write it. (Take the princess and Prince Charming convention and turn it on it's ear!) The shot of the rats cleaning the toilet for the princess was too funny.

Hi all,

On reading the thread on Harry Potter, I would certainly encourage to have people see the movies before reading any of the books - I, on the other hand did not do this and have been disappointed ever since the third movie.

I just finished the UK version of the seventh book - Deathly Hallows - Sunday night and although it was good, I no longer think parents should let their younger children read it alone - there were a number of things that made the book hard for me to keep reading - at a point I think I wanted to finish it just to say that I've read them all. However, the ending is good and hopefully now that HP is complete, JKR will write about something else that tickles the mind and ensnares the senses...


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

I watched A Good Year (starring Russel Crowe) and found it enjoyable. Nice visual aesthetic - showing cold colours in urban London financial scene contrasted with the warm and sunning rural France. It was a great story line that leaves you happy - not some of those modern movies that some say are "feel good" but leave you in "feel like crap" mode smile.gif

I'm such a musical geek! I went and saw Hairspray with my daughters (9 &7) and my Neice (15). We all really enjoyed it, the youngest one not as much as the rest.
The songs are great, although the integration theme is pretty beyond many peoples grasp these days.
John Travolta as a woman and married to creepy Christopher Walkin! Their duet was so funny!
Of course the girls all LOVE Zac Efron, so that was worth it to them.

Give me a good musical any day!! yes.gif

The last movie I watched was "Sons of the Desert" starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. We saw it in the little theatre at the Laurel & Hardy museum in Harlem, Georgia this past Tuesday. Harlem is the birthplace of Oliver Hardy.

I finally got a chance to see Pan's Labarynth last night.I've been wanting to watch it, but no one else in the house wanted to. They're all gone for the weekend, so I put it on pay per view. Quite a visual story! Scary and sad until the end. It was actually even more entertaining to have it subtitled- the Spanish language is a beautiful language and it was nice to hear it in the background.

A+++ except I wouldn't let little kids see it.

I stayed in last night because of severe thunderstorms, so I watched The Fast & The Furious on DVD.

Stardust-
It was fun to watch and relax. That's what I need to get rid of the day to day routine.

My wife and I are going to see Stardust tomorrow morning at a theater that openned a few months ago which has very "vertical" seating, so that it's nearly impossible for anyone to sit in front of you and not be able to see.

I hear that the movie has done well and that both critics and movie goers like it!

Even though the seating is not a vertical one.The theater we went to, the screen is so big an high that it would need almost a giant to block the view,plus the seats are done so that you can recline in them.

As for the storyline goes its good and so are the special effects.
