Always looking for something different to watch,these DVD's dropped onto my doormat the other day.

Sinking Of Japan.Guesse what.It's a disaster movie.The SFX are awesome,backed up by a cracking DTS:ES soundtrack.But it's overly long and makes The Day After Tomorrow look like a classic Rolling Eyes .

A Battle Of Wits.A lavishly produced historical drama from China.It tells the complex story of a lone warrior/monk,whose mission is to save a besieged walled city from the savage attack of a 25,000 strong army.
It's a sincere historical mega-production with values that resonate with this viewer Cool .

I watched The Notorious Bettie Page the other day on DVD- it was ok....and had a cool feel to it going back and forth from black and white to almost a technicolor type thing.

I also watched JarHead the other day on HBO- I almost flipped the channel- I can't always deal with gory war movies- however it wasn't like that at all. It was more focused on the mental state of several marines during Desert Storm- it was interesting.... It features Jake Gyllenhal, Jamie Foxx, and Peter Sarsgaard.....I'd recommend it.

The scene with Jack Nicholson in the movie theatre, dick in hand, was more shocking to me than anything but boy, that was one bloody movie, wasn't it?

we went the whole hog and watched three dvd's over the weekend .
i had some bonus points at shopper's drugstore and got "borat" for free !
the film is a riot - but i'm glad he didn't catch me off guard !

also watched "last of the blonde bombshells" - again , as it turned out . very enjoyable .

i found "divorce - italian style " at the library .
1962 b & w - great cinematic action - and could actually understand some of the italian .

I watched Poseidon on tv. I was never a big fan of the Poseidon Adventure. I thought this movie was better. That's a first--for me. A remake that was an improvement on the original. The movie wasn't so overblown. The characters were less of a cliche. It was shorter! (A big plus.)

Overall not a great movie, but a pleasant surprise.

I recently saw a double bill:
- Ice Planet, a failed pilot for a sci-fi series
- Escape: Human Cargo, an interesting TV movie about a cultural clash between a US business man and shady Saudi partners.

The last movie I saw was "The Bridge on the River Kwai." Although 50 years old, it holds up in every way! Great movie.

I popped CASABLANCA,the 1942 classic into the player the other day.It's become more of an icon than a mere classic film,cited as being the most romantic film ever and the best to come out of a Hollywood studio.It's a film that almost everyone has seen and it contains perhaps the most famous one-liners in cinema.It is thoroughly entertaining,flawlessly directed,supremely played and almost unbearibly romantic in it's evocation of lost chances and honour.How different it all could have been if the original cast including Ronald Reagan had been available...

We just saw "Barnyard" an animated Nickelodeon film - such a nice
movie. Reminded me of "Babe". One of the animals "head cow Ben"
had the voice of Sam Elliot- what a great voice he has!!

Because I was very impressed with Pan's Labyrinth,I decided to check out another film by it's director Guillermo Del Toro.
The Devil's Backbone is a ghost story set in a Spanish orphanage in the late 1930's.Del Toro's direction is very effective,the cinematography is drop-dead-georgeous and great acting from the mainly child cast.It's not your typical scare-a-thon.It leaves you with a sense of haunting rather than fear.
If you liked The Others you should definatly seek out this lesser-known gem for an evening of intelligent,tension-filled suspense.

"The Departed" -- this year's Oscar winner. Scorcese in top form with what is a traditional crime drama but with twists and turns that hit one like a ton of bricks, and performances to match. Especially the cell phones!

I watched "Bend it Like Beckham" last night. Such a joyful movie. When I watched it before, I didn't realize that the actor playing the young coach was the same actor that played Elvis a short while back and will be playing a young and very hot King Henry VIII in an upcoming Showtime presentation. He's pretty adorable.
