Could you explain to me how it does??. I really didn't get that from the movie.

This wasn't the last movie I saw, but I'd give Pirates Of The Caribbean 3 a 9/10, because it was a very enjoyable movie. It seems to me like there could be another sequel, does anybody else agree??. I'd love it if there was.

Spiderman 3 - 8.5/10. IMO, the best of the trilogy. Although they didn't do nearly enough with the Venom character (I mean, Topher Grace....Come On!!!), I did like the character of the Sandman. Thanks to Thomas Hayden Church, he comes across as a sympathetic character.

I particularly liked the scene where the alien parasite-influenced Peter Parker kicks Harry Osborne's a**. Who would have thought that pasty-faced Toby Maguire could realistically convey such vitriol.

Shrek The Third - 9/10 This installment was better than the first and not quite as good as Shrek 2. Plenty of laughs, though!! I particularly liked Shrek's dreams of fatherhood.

I bought the set to see if another narrator would make a difference. Yep, no one can out do the junior Attenborough for making an epic breathtaking.

"Planet Earth" (10/10) Sigourney Weaver did her best, but restrained enthusiasm can't trump English dry wit. :afro:

" The Straight Story " ( 1999 ) : I can't say for sure how many times I've seen this , or parts of it , but it Always sucks me in to finish watching it . David Lynch ( believe it or not ) directs a heart warming story of an elderly man crossing the US Mid-West on a garden tractor in order to make peace with a brother he hasn't seen for many years . Just ... great , and full of interesting and decent folk that he meets along the way . Makes one wish that everyone could take such a pleasant trip like that at least once in their life . 10/10

^ dying to see 'half nelson' and have seen 'casino royale' three times - it rocks!!! daniel craig kicks it as bond!!

on friday night i watched 'herz aus glas', a movie made by german director werner herzog in 1976. it's very slow and strange. the director wanted the characters to appear under a depressive tracne so he hypnotised all but one of the actors and they perform their lines under hypnosis. it's crazy! very cryptic and random but the scenery is amazing and some of the shots are fantastic. i wouldn't recommend it to the casual film-watcher!!

Just saw Knocked Up. Very funny with a nice story mixed in. The cast is great. It was written by Judd Apatow, who won writing Emmy's for The Larry Sander's Show. He also wrote The 40 Year Old Virgin. Definitely recommend it. 9/10

An Inconvenient Truth by/with Al Gore

well, I'm still watching it, but I'll give it a 10 nevertheless

even though there aren't many new facts (for me) he still gives some very good and interesting examples...

should be mandatory watching in every school, imho :)

I watched Alan Clarke's cinema version of Scum for the fourth time this morning. This movie ranks pretty high as one of my all-time favourites. After that was finished, I needed to come off that high by watching 3 minutes of Coyote Ugly to bring me back to the real world of mediocrity.

My wife and I rented "The Queen" this past weekend. Helen Mirren's portrayal of Elizabeth II was nothing short of outstanding. After seeing the movie, I don't know whether to feel contempt or pity for the Queen. She certainly is a somewhat cold and detached individual, but then she also is a product of her upbringing.

I still think all the fulsome praise heaped on Diana was a bit over the top. While her death at such a young age was tragic, I don't believe that she was the persecuted, unloved victim of the royal family. She was old enough when she married Charles to know what she was getting into. While his behaviour during their marriage was reprehensible, she certainly didn't behave with much decorum or dignity before or after the divorce.

James Cromwell's portrayal of the Duke of Edinburgh as a cold, pompous, not-too-bright windbag was spot on.

9.5/10
