Momento

Strange, very strange. It's based on a short story and chopped into scenes that are played backwards with overlaps. Basically, you see the entire thing twice. The only thing I could figure is that they made a short story into a short movie and then made if full-length by playing it twice.

Well said Barry. Although I have never actually seen The Nun's Story, or heard much about it. Is it worth renting?


See what loads of others think of The Nun's Story HERE.For the price of a rental,you could probably pick up the DVD for the same price,if you know where to look :wink:

To watch Memento in chronological order,but then you take away the "thinking factor", program your dvd player to play the chapters in this order.....
2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,32,34,36,38,40,42,44,43,41,39,37,35,33,31,29,27,25,23,21,19,17,15,13,11,9,7,5,3,1,45.

Thanks Barry! It looks pretty interesting- come to think of it, I guess I haven't seen very many Audrey Hepburn films.....

How did you figure that out? That's really cool.... I didn't even know I could program my DVD to do that....

Got the info from the Main Menu on the DVD.Highlite the crossed-out word and press Enter on your remote :wink: .

Just had a thaught.Maybe you haven't heard of DVD easter eggs.These easter eggs are hidden extras that the film companies put on the DVD.Sometimes the easter egg is a blooper,or maybe a gag-reel or even an interview.See HERE for more info and titles that have easter eggs and how to view them.
Happy hunting Cool .

No! I can't believe I've never heard of that! It totally reminds me of discovering all the cool little secrets in Super Mario Bros. when I was little! Very Happy

I saw Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (1964), a celebration of 60's style, with very vivid colours for an everyday romance set to a musical score by Michel Legrand (think of a Hollywood musical without the show or spectacle).

And Les Invasions Barbares (2003), a very worthwhile French-Canadian film of how the estranged son of a philandering college professor goes out of his way to make things better when he learns that his father is suffering from terminal cancer.

Huh? Did he tell you this joke? Sorry, ehbeth. I don't get the connection. Question


the two of you have very similar senses of humour

the DVD of The Aristocrats is keyed up and ready to play. I think I better go pee first. I won't make it through safely otherwise.

Just watched "The Matador" with Pierce Brosnan and Greg Kinnear. Funny, odd, beautiful scenes shot in Mexico and Brosnan like you've never quite seen him before.

This weekend I saw Slither (2006), a b-horor movie. It was a mistake, I was looking for Shivers (1975, David Cronenberg) and the plot of these films has some similaities (extra terrestrial parasite taking over humans), but I am pretty sure Cronenberg's flick beats Slither.

The second film (Animal, 2005) was also borrowed by mistake. Just from the title and the box cover I assumed it was a werewolf flick, but it turned out to be a quite palatable endeavour to explore the character of man and whether we have the right to mess with it.

I just saw "Wedding Crashers". I was in "down" mood, and wanted a film that was "up". I laughed my head off.

i liked slither, it didn't take itself to seriously and that usually works pretty well in horror films

A Bronx Tale, this evening on AMC....for the umpteenth time. Everything about that movie is perfect; the story, the cast - DeNiro! how can you go wrong? - the soundtrack is so dead-on that you feel the time period.
