Do NOT see/rent Garden State unless you are inspired by movies devoid of plot with underdeveloped characters who have nothing interesting to say. Ugh. I will never get that time back. Same thing goes for Napolean Dynamite. *shudder*

I am so excited to see The Phantom of the Opera! I've seen the musical several times, have the soundtrack....I love it. My mom made me promise that we'd go see it together. I can't wait!

LOL at Bathory....you poor thing, it sounds like you had a couple of bad experiences!

Hope it's as good as the stage musical!

I'm not a big fan of musicals being shown on the silver screen (i.e., Moulin Rouge) but Chicago was different, I hope the same goes for The Phantom of the Opera.

I think I'm the only person that didn't like Chicago. I rented the tape and shut it off. I am looking forward to seeing Phantom, though!

The film adaptation is WONDERFUL, I agree, but please go into it with an open mind- The Phantom is played somewhat differently (though I love this interpretation of him) than he usually is. I like the Baritone Vs. the Tenor, as well.

I highly recommend 'A Very Long Engagement' (French, with English subtitles), 'Sideways', 'Collateral' and 'Ray'. I really enjoyed all of these.

Also recommended: 'House of Flying Daggers' - not as good as 'Hero' or 'Crouching Tiger' but a beautiful film to watch (Mandarin (I think) with English subtitles); 'The Station Agent'; and 'Hellboy' - but that one is more enjoyable if you're already a fan of the comic book; 'The Triplets of Belleville'; Dodgeball.

As with all movies, YMMV!

i love movie musicals, but not so much stage musicals. Moulin Rouge is one of my absolute favorites as well as Chicago. I have been harping to see phantom since it's early release date but the two theater's in pitts that are actually showing it are so far away. One time we made it almost all the way but it was snowing a bit and we lost some time and got to the waterfront late And now it's been almst impossible to get down there due to all the stuff going on with me.. But atleast it's being released at all theaters friday so I'll get to see it soon!

I am also looking forward to Phantom. We saw the stage production here in Toronto 5 times. The "phantom" in our stage production (Colm Wilkinson) was interviewed recently on radio and gave the film an excellent review so I'm guessing it should be good.

I have to say I hated Moulin Rouge - rented it, watched about 20 minutes and couldn't stand it any more. Wasn't that crazy about Chicago either.

The Aviator was a real entertaining movie-I actually *liked* Leonardo DiCaprio in this one. Also, it was fun to try and guess which historical people everyone was.

Finding Neverland is wonderful, but be sure to bring kleenex. Everyone in the theater was teary by the end, and the woman behind us was sobbing (her poor daughter was so embarassed and tried to sneak off).

Gasp. I really liked Garden State. You have to be in the right frame of mind and see it with the right person... or maybe have the right personality?

Anyone seen In Good Company? I'd love to hear how it is!

I want to see Phantom but I haven't seen the play and I'd like to see that first.

Well it's probably already on DVD over there in the states but I saw Spongebob Squarepants at the cinema last week and I definitly don't reccomend it.

Hmm... and I thought "A Very Long Engagement" was corny. Was I surprised when I found out it was up for "Best Foreign Film" at the Golden Globes. "Sideways" & "Ray", would love to see them once they hit the local cinemas. Heard so many good things about these movies.

I would like to recommend this particular comedy film from HK: Kung Fu Hustle
It's hilarious and I had so much fun watching this movie. It's from the star of "Shaolin Soccer" (anybody familiar with the movie?). If you're keen on slapsticks, subtitles, and martial arts, then this movie is for you.

Cool, thanks for the heads up. We have a copy of "Shaolin Soccer" Did you see "Iron Monkey"? It came out a few years ago.

We saw "The Aviator" yesterday. ... Not bad. I liked it, but for most of the movie I saw DiCaprio on the screen, not Howard Hughes. It wasn't until they added the moustache that I felt like DiCaprio allowed himself to become the character.

Just my .02!

Collateral was AWESOME! I hate Tom Cruise and he was great in it.

Sideways ROCKED!

And the best of the season was definitely Closer! Ranks right up there with great filmaking like Mystic River and Lost in Translation.

Sure Gargoyle, no problem.

I have been a fan of Stephen Chow for about 10 years+ now- he's soo hilarious that's why I get soo excited seeing his movies! I don't know about "Iron Monkey"... maybe I have seen it but don't know the English title to his movies. Is it any good though?

My mom was able to get a (pirated) Best of Stephen Chow DVD... I hope it has "Iron Monkey"!

Oooh "The Aviator", very excited about that!

I checked the dvd box - Iron Monkey is not a Stephen Chow film. It show Starring: Rongguang Yu,*Donnie Yen; Director: Woo-ping Yuen. According to comments on Amazon, it was released in Hong Kong in 1993.

We do have another Stephen Chow movie - God of Cookery Haven't watched it in a while but I remember we thought it was a lot of fun. I'll have to get it out and watch it again.

We thought "Shaun of the Dead" wasn't quite as goofy as the trailer made it out to be, but it was still a fun movie
