I haven't seen 'Star Wars' yet...maybe next week - but today I saw "About a Boy" with Hugh Grant. I loved it!!! I'll probably see it again too.

So, have YOU seen any good movies lately?

yes, i just watched the director's cut of Apocalypse Now tonight... all 3 hours and 20 minutes of it.
what a cinematic masterpiece. you may not like the content, but the sheer filmmaking skill that went into that movie is truly impressive. there is not a single scene, not a single camera shot, nothing, in that movie that doesn't contribute to the whole.
wow.

saw star wars (of course) and thought it was pretty good... if you can look past the thin writing and cheesy (overdone) romance... "the hills are alive, with the sound of music..."

worth watching, and i'll watch it again.

hmm... haven't seen anythign else "new" for a while... though Iron Monkey is definitely worth while renting if you haven't seen it... think Matrix mixed with Crouching Tiger, put in a historical, humourous location.

    I saw Spiderman a couple of days ago & I thought it RoCkEd, not to mention the soundtrack ( I <3 "Hero" - the theme to Spiderman - ) There is more to come from Spiderman, & I cant wait to see it!!!

    Ive never really been a Star Wars Fan, so I cant ever say if there good or bad; but I find it disappointing (as a non-fan) to see people getting so worked up about a PREQUEL...its just odd to me that you would want to go see somthing that ended so long ago.

Hey C - not stealing that line from anywhere are you? heh..

Well...I saw the Count of Monte Cristo and being the foolish sucker for period dramas that I am...dashing men in dashing cloaks dashing their long dashing hair and swords around...sigh...yeah, so I loved it.

And - I saw a tv production of Jane Eyre for school...vive la romance! Lol..

As for starwars - yoda gets to play with a light saber! I mean - how cool is that? Ignoring of course the overly done romance...

Hey, MidsummeRain (welcome btw)...as for this starwards phenomenon...I find it disappointing that a person who hasn't seen any of them can criticise those who love the prequels as much as the sequels Really..it's not hard to understand - you see, it hasn't ended long ago..not at all..(unless you count the long time ago in a galaxy far far away part...)

If you like spiderman, you might just like starwars...

I'm quite beside myself! heh...

Some of the recent movies that I have given a thumbs up to...

1. From Hell ~ this is a gem that didn't do well at the box office, too bad. Johnny Depp was excellent in this latest take on Jack the Ripper.

2. The Lord of the Rings ~ I was completely surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie as I only went because my daughter wanted to see it. One of the best movies of last year and imo should of won the Oscar. What Star Wars of the 70s was is what Lord of the Rings is of the 00s.

3. Monster's Ball ~ this movie could of drifted off into a "racial" thing, but it didn't as it elogantly and quite sadly told the story of 2 very lonely people. Halle Barry was fabulous, so was Billy Bob.

4. Frailty ~ Whether or not you are a Christian or an athiest, you will walk away from this movies thinking and wondering, "Could this really happen to someone?"  Excellent movie from first time director Bill Paxton.  A loving father of 2 sons was told by an Angel from God to kill demons. Scary and violent, but not a blood bath like those stupid Jason movies.

Y Tu Mama Tambien. The most honest portrayal of sex and political strife I've ever seen. A poem of a movie.

####SPOILER FOR SPIDERMAN MOVIE######

JAR JAR IS FOR KIDS i have to admit it but its true my kids love jar jar binks     I just wanted to say that I knew the answer to Ron's "amazing" trivia question so there and I too have comics stashed in the attic as well as unopened star wars toys (the new ones of course yuh the old ones all have red berry juice all over them to emulate the feel and look of real blood) But yuh Star Wars episode 2 or more aptly named "Crouching Tiger Hidden Yoda" really Rocked even tho the love scenes are a jar jar bane to me. Sorry to be in two threads at once but what does gwen stacy have to do with how much we all see in the movie that spidey loves mary jane. it just doesnt make since for what is revealed and come on they show us mary and how peter only wants her and then he walks away?? Thats my only gripe bout Spiderman the motion picture yuh yuh yuh!

Just saw What Lies Beneath...wow...spooky, but I liked it. Never much got into Star Wars- not about to start. I want to see the Austin Powers sequel when it comes out.

Why is it that we are at our most ingenius only when trying to destroy the things that keep us alive and thriving?

    I just got finished watching a German film called "The Princess and The Warrior" fantastic movie about destiny & redemption!
    Severn, find me to be dissapointing if you wish, but know that if I criticize, you will know it. Re-read my post again, it is an opinion only.

For in much wisdom is much grief
& he who increases knowledge
    increases sorrow...
