I don't know what all the critical fuss is about with Avatar, I think it was a very good movie. It's convincing and entertaining and then you get back to the real world. And of course Punky is right, for me, part of what was convincing was the fact that some very pertinent issues were raised.

Well... I'm one of the 15 to 20% of people who shouldn't watch 3d movies, so I won't be going. Maybe I catch it on TV in three years when it looks hilariously outdated.

North by Northwest. Not one of the best Hitchcocks I've seen, but very entertaining. I loved the plane scene! Plus I now understand that line from GK3.

Just saw L'Ascenseur pour l'Echafaud (Elevator to the Gallows), the 1958 movie with music by Miles Davis. Good film.

I really enjoyed watching this!

Bought it at the freemarket on April 30th, for merely 20 cents. Unfortunately, as I don't often find this movie, I failed to check why. The day after, when I wanted to watch it, I discovered the tape had melted or something. The cartridge and the wheels that hold the tape were pretty mangled, but the tape itself seemed in good condition. So I wrecked open the old cartridge and took out the tapes, and after an afternoon of trying, we decided it would be best if we just stuck it on using tape.

When I was away one day, Dad did that for me. And I just watched it. It's great! Nice dialog! Great to know that Disney was able of making historic films, put an element of comedy into it without making anachronistic jokes.


I saw it again several days ago and am ready to revise my opinion.
The music is fantastic, except for the drooling Bryan Adams/Sting theme song that runs over the credits.
Cast is great, except for Chris O'Donnell who really needs to work on his elocution.
Story is pretty OK.

Bad stuff:
-Real bad one-liners. Occasionally predictable, occasionally groanable.
-Exploding carriage
-Bad guy ends in a stupid way, strong anti-climax

Hey Bonny, you mention Chris O'Donnell so assume by the name of the jpg that you are talking about the 1993 film of The Three Musketeers. The picture is not showing and you don't actually mention the name of the film in your post.

Yeah that one! Sorry I goofed up, I guess they removed that picture or put rights on it or something. But yes, I re-watched Three Musketeers after I bought the DVD. At a flea market. No extras.

Had a Curry cartoon marathon with Garfield 2: A Tail Of Two Kitties and The Wild Thornberrys movie. Both were better than I expected, though neither is up for a review.

Funny I forgot to ask about this at the time, but why shouldn't you watch 3D movies?

Long story. But the short version is I have such a hard time getting the 3D to work that my eyes and head really hurt after watching something for twenty minutes, although it kinda depends on what system is used to achieve the 3D effect.

Want to see the rest of the fugitive series. Try to find a torrent file, since you cannot buy it in Holland

Found the 1978 UK mystery The Shout. It's a great mystery, and a terrific chance to see John Hurt (His Majesty the Horned King) do some work in the flesh! I also spent some time looking for Susan Wooldridge (who is in the Cluedo? for CD-i) but I couldn't find her.

Time to watch Pan's labyrinth for you then.
Last time CBP wanted to see that movie, she saw only the first 30 minutes, the rest she recorded on tape.
At the end time of the movie I checked the videochannel and saw Footbal. I hurried to get the rest on the computer and tried to find the movie on tape or dvd. Fortenately I found a fast torrent and downloaded the movie.
Unfortenately their was only English subtitles with the package. Although BBP is speaking english very good, it is hard when you're Dutch and you are watching a Spanish soken movie with Englisch subtitles. So I tried with a special and free program to translate the subtitles. (always Handy)
