the last few movies from Netflix...

Oceans Twelve :XX: :XX: and 1/2

I Huckabees :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow :XX: :XX: and 1/2 - I loved the style of the movie, and appreciate the inspiration, but the chemistry between Jude Law and Gwenyth Paltrow sucked lemons

Tonight is the French Connection...stay tuned....

OK, The French Connection :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:

Does anyone remember what commercial "sampled" the car chase from this movie?? It was done recently, maybe last year? I wanna say for a wireless company, but I can't remember.

I don't get to the movies hardly at all I wait till they come out on DVD or Directv puts them on LOL sooo can ya rate any movie you last saw or only current ones :thinking:


Miss Cong. 2 well I couldn't wait till this movie came on cause I loved the first one and well thats weird for me cause I typically do the old Hollywood era films and feel like modern movies just fail completely in comparison with acting and plots... This one wasn't as good as the first which I have seen so many times I have it memorized I would only give it :XX: :XX: 1/2

Kitty Foyle~ Starring Ginger Rogers made in the 40's and I really like this movie.. Its not your typical love story kinda has loops in there give it :XX: :XX: :XX:

12 Angry Men~SOOOOO good!! I really enjoy watching this movie whenever it comes on so wonderfully done just around these 12 men..
So I give it :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:

Thats all I've seen lately although i'm thinking tomorrow I'm gonna watch The Women while I work on the baby afghan or a purse for myself!!

Movie: Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy
Movie Rating: PG
Producer: Touchstone Pictures and Buena Vista Entertainment
Genre: Sci-Fi

Review Ratings: (scale: 1 to 4. 1 is worst, 4 is Best.)
~ Overall: 2.5 out of 4 knitting needles
~ Plot: 2.5 out of 4 knitting needles
~ Characters: 3.0 out of 4 knitting needles
~ Special Effects: 2.5 out of 4 knitting needles.

Review Comments:
Don't Panic!

If you don't like English humor, do NOT rent this movie. This is definately done in the same style as the book series. I must admit that it has been YEARS since I read the book and some of the stuff they covered in the movie was stuff that I went "Oh Yeah..." But from what I can tell/remember they haven't taken too many liberties.

Do not plan on knitting during this movie unless you are VERY familiar with the book. You will need to watch it pretty closely, as it tends to jump around. (The book was the same way.)

For me, this is not a ha-ha movie and I'm not sure that i would ever buy the DVD.

Can ya be a LITTLE more specific, Femmy? :rofling:
Hmmm my post didn't go through. Anyway, I said something like Johnny Depp is a creepy Micheal Jacksonish and all the special effects were just that. Effects. They didn't really add to the story. I felt the whole story was a little flat. There was no substance. Whereas the 70's version, Gene Wilder was very dynamic. He had FEELING without being creepy. All the characters were characters not devices to keep the plot going.

Must Love Dogs. Also flat. Although I must admit I like Dinae Lane (I love her in anything) amd John Cusak. The story was weak. I guess those mushy love stories dn't do it for me. Just something to pass the time. Pretty rich white people with problems, WWAAAaaa.....

Broken Flowers was Excellent. Bill Murry carried the tension of the plot very well. I like slow movies too. You can feel along with the characters. I aslo Love Jim Jarmush (sp?).

So some of my favorite movies?

Deloris Clairborn :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:
Excellent story, great acting, well filmed.

Shawshank Redemtion :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:
Excellenet story, how often do you get to see men have feelings for one another? Great acting, well filmed, yada yada yada

All That Jazz :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:
I mean it's Bob Fosse, of course it's excellent

Amelie :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:
Also my 9 year old sons favorite. It's just a funny, feelgood movie that doesn't have all the syrup all over it.

well i just came home from "An Unfinished Life." I think this is a beautiful movie. Morgan Freeman's character is very similar to his character in Million Dollar Baby, Robert Redford played the guy you just expect him to play, and Jennifer Lopez was surprisingly not annoying. As usual, the little girl is the glue that holds the whole thing together. It is fairly similar to Legends of the Fall i think which is another movie i enjoy a lot. I can't say that the story is unpredictable but i still loved it. i will definitely be adding this one to my collection and i do believe that Morgan Freeman will likely get a nomination for his role.

AMELIE is one of my all-time favorite movies!! I used to play the soundtrack to DD when I was preggers, and we still play it for her at night to put her to bed. The whole movie is just eye-candy, it's so beautiful.

I Amelie too!! :XX: :XX: :XX: :XX:

It's one of my faves. I adore Audrey Tautou, she's a great actress. Happenstance was good too. Apparently she's going to be in the DaVinci Code too...I might actually have to go see that.
