Thanks for the weekly update Joost.
I saw Margot At The Wedding last weekend. Pretty boring, although it featured Nicole Kidman. Probably lots of layers that I didn't pick up!

But I agree, it's certainly not one of his better stories.

you reckon? I loved it! Less gory sci fi more deepness. i'd say. Though the book is much better than the movie. The movie had very wooden acting in it... considering when it was made though...

I agree with you about the acting, but I thought that one of the good things was that they stayed really close to the original story. There weren't too many differences between the book and the movie.

My mistake. It's been a long time! I enjoyed the collection: Four Past Midnight. Has The Sun Dog ever been made into a movie?

The Langoliers

Oh yeah, that one... I'm not a big Stephen King fan, or rather not a big horror fan, but I rather liked that one... The one I like quite a bit is the Green Mile. Anyone else likes it? We had to watch it for English class at school. I think it's a really good movie... good story, good acting too 8) Very sad though, in parts...

The last movie I saw was Wall-e. I really liked it! 8) I haven't seen such a good cartoon/animated movie in a long time! It reminded me of those awesome cartoons I used to watch as a kid back in the 90's :)

Excellent movie!

Illegal Tender
I absolutely hated this one. I had to watch it because I had to write a review (so obviously it got 1 out of 5 stars). The acting was awful, the story was awful, the music was awful (reggaeton and R&B) and I hated the main characters (a spoiled, juvenile brat and his slutty mom) so I really couldn't care less if they got a happy ending or not.

The Spiderwick Chronicles
A good modern day fairytale. The story was OK and the trolls, elves, goblins and ogres looked pretty cool. But for a children's movie (which it basically is) I did think it was maybe a bit too violent at some points.

The Entity
About a woman who frequently gets raped by a ghost. Supposedly based on a true story. Nothing special really.

[REC]
Now this is a great movie. I've seen a whole lot of horror movies, but this was definately one of the scariest ones. I'll admit that I sometimes turn the sound off when a movie gets really scary (they're always subtitled anyway), I think that in total I had the sound off for about 10-15 minutes during this movie... It's Spanish, but don't let that be a reason to not go see it. It starts off with a female TV reporter, Angela, and her camera man Pablo who follow a couple of local fireman during their night shift. That night they get locked up in an appartment building where some really weird things are happening. The entire movie is made as if it's filmed by Pablo, so you really get the feeling that you're trapped in the building with these people.

The last movie I saw was Bridget Jones's Diary. I had seen it before, and I still think it's a rather enjoyable film, even for a chick flick. Hugh Grant or Colin Firth- the most difficult decision a woman can make!

Like Joost, I'm a horror/thriller fan, but I'd never heard of The Fountain so I looked it up. Sounds intriguing, I'll have to search it out.

Seriously, it`s a good film, but one has to watch it twice. A lot of things escape during the first watch. It is very strange, but I know great fans of that film. Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz are starring. Hugh did a great job, fantastic. What I am also drawn by to this film is the soundtrack. Its force.

At last I`ve seen Mamma Mia! Very good film, full of songs and laughter! After the film all ABBA songs kept coming to my mind, and my favourite one suppressing them all! It is Honey, Honey, kiss me baby aha, honey, honey...

I'm watching "Hitchcock's The British Years box set " at the moment .
It's got Hitchcocks first film "The Pleasure Garden"(1925) included, i had never seen this silent film before which he made in Germany when he was 25 .
I found this film quite facinating 70 minutes of really strange flickering images , it's like looking into a forgotten world , it's set in the music hall's of the 20's , the storey revolves around two men falling in love with the same chorus girl , the scantly clad "Virginia Villi" , she drives these two men mad with desire with her strange erotic dancing .
It's like watching one of those old "What The Butler Saw Films " .
Film censorship had obviously not fully taken over at this point in film history , young Hitchcock brings to the screen quite a saucy romp .
Many of the sexual obsession themes of his later work , you can see in embryo in this film.
 "The Pleasure Garden " is a real insight into this great directors mind .
It's also got a wild musical score by "Lee Erwin" played on one of those old cinema organs , which i really enjoyed .
It's well worth a watch this film if your a fan of Hitchcock , truely a facinating bit of film history .

I`ve seen the new film Burn After Reading (not sure of the translation). It`s good and a bit crazy. Liked it.

Hi Dave, I've wondered about that set. I figured I wouldn't be disappointed even if some were silent because it's HITCHCOCK! With your endorsement I'll probably so ahead and make the purchase. Thanks! Dana ; )
