I'm looking forward to seeing that one. I hear if you can get through the first five minutes dry-eyed, you are one tough customer.

Dear eoe?! What's taking you so long to see such a wonderful film? Run! Don't walk! To your neighborhood DVD or Bluray rental store... better yet ... drive to the store if it's a farther then a 5 minute walk from your house!

@eoe,
Wqtcdhed "Miwsing" with Tommy Lee Jones. A western with some bullshit shamanistic undertones.

@farmerman,
Watched two charming and noteworthy animated films yesterday. Both on the opposite spectrum of film.

One: A rarely seen Australian independent claymation/stop motion film called $9.99 on the pursuit and attempt at understanding the meaning of life.
Second: The wonderful and underrated Disney film Bolt. Both films were earnest and sincere in getting they're simple messages across. The latter film being family friendly while the former was a much deeper and philosophical work. Both deservedly earned a 9 out of 10 score from me.

Scent of a Woman. I hadn't seen it in years. Not on my list of favorite Pacino performances at all but it's nice to see a young and fresh-faced Chris O'Donnell again. He was a child model in Chicago for many years and we worked together often.

@eoe,
I've never seen that film. I have always been a fan of Pacino's but not a raging fan because there are other actors who I like better but I should see Scent of a Woman.

I streamed Antichrist last night from Netflix. I'm dumbfounded as to why von Trier would title this movie of his "Antichrist." I was expecting to see something along the lines of Christian Apocalyptic mythology. The movie had nothing to do with this. Instead, it was about a decent into madness by a woman who lost her child. The movie was pretty good in that respect, although it lacked a connection between the woman's feelings of loss and her mental decline. All von Trier shows is a few flashes of the child falling out of a window, and the woman saying once, "I miss him so much."

Von Trier did his film a disservice by ineptly titling this film.

@InfraBlue,
Did you watch this movie alone? If not, did you ask the people that also watched the movie for their opinion? I'm assuming you watched it alone, simply because you wrote, "I" streamed Antichrist last night from Netflix", am I correct?

I just finished watching last 3 episodes of Torchwood: Children of Earth. Utterly amazing. Wow! They didn't pull any punches. The main reason American Network television pales in comparison to all things British television.

I was meh to the several episodes in the prior 2 season of the show. Boy did they pull off an amazing 5 episode arc.

Now that I was so compelled to finish the series off tonight, I have to go to bed now.

Just watched "The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3". The remake. Thought John Travolta overacted throughout the entire movie. Big disappointment. Denzel Washington nailed his character, as always. Consummate performance. Real to the bone.

The last film I saw was The Bounty, the 1984 version of the famous mutiny, starring Mel Gibson, Daniel Day-Lewis, Liam Neeson, Lawrence Olivier and Edward Fox, with Anthony Hopkins as William Bligh.

It was amazing to see them young, with hair! Neeson and Day-Lewis were neophytes with their big roles still ahead of them. Gibson looked a little like a thinner Elvis. He could not act. Hopkins was absolutely mad . . . watched it with my son who said that whenever there is a role for a man who goes crazy and harangues people, they call Hopkins. I said he's not a leading man and my son answered, "How could he be? He's always screaming."

Not worth looking for.

I just rewatched the particularly charming and heartwarming Kiki's Delivery Service. Another masterpiece by Hayao Miyazaki. As well as the inspiration for my latest avatar.

Julie & Julia. Meryl Streep delivers yet another wonderful performance. I need to do a bit of research tho to see how the filmmakers pulled off the height situation. And I was too tickled to see that Julia's sister was even taller than she!

fun movie

Stone of Destiny is a 2008 British-Canadian adventure/comedy film directed by Charles Martin Smith. It stars Charlie Cox, Billy Boyd, Robert Carlyle, Kate Mara and Brenda Fricker.

The film is based on real events and tells the story of the rightful return of the Stone of Scone on Christmas Day, 1950. The stone, supposedly the pillow stone used by Jacob in the Bible and the stone over which Scottish Kings were traditionally crowned at Scone in Perthshire, was seized by the English King Edward I in 1296 and placed under the throne at Westminster Abbey in London. In 1950, a nationalist plot succeeded in removing it from Westminster Abbey and returning it to Scotland where it was placed symbolically at Arbroath Abbey, the site of the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath and an important site in the Scottish nationalist cause.

Other cast members include Peter Mullan, Rab Affleck, Bryan Lowe, Ciaron Kelly, and Stephen McCole. Filming began in June 2007 in locations including Westminster Abbey, the University of Glasgow, Ayr and Paisley including Film City studio and Arbroath Abbey.

@djjd62,
Not released on DVD here yet Sad

Best I can tell from various sources is maybe later this month or sometime in July. Netflix tells me release date is "unknown". Blockbuster doesn't list it at all (typical LOL).

Amazon has it for sale, but only in Canada and the UK.

@eoe,
Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci had the most wonderful and romantic on-screen chemistry I have ever seen in a film in Julie & Julia.
