    What is the last movie you saw? and rate it.

    Did any of you see the movie hedwig, or the play? I think it is quite possibly one of the best movies I have ever seen. Rent it if you get a chance. It's all about a transvestite who escaped nazi germany to become a rock and rule star, but it is about so much more, and is loaded with greek mythology, and the music is great because its a rock and roll musical. It is so creative, and visually rich, and sybolic, I don't even have words.

    I've seen the movie and the play. Although I didn't see the play with the original Hedwig. Definitly one of my favorite movies "The Origin of Love" is one of the best songs ever. Ok well not much time I just wanted to say this is indeed a great play and everyone should go see it.

    Also for those who havn't seen the movie/play it is actualy called Hedwig and the Angry Itch and it wasn't Nazi Germany he escaped it was Russian/communist Germany.

    Sorry, the only thing worse than my American History is my German History.

    I never saw the play (tear), but my roomate did a few times, and she loved it. I went to rent the movie though and I couldn't find it in any of the rental places, then when I tried to buy it I couldn't find it in any of the stores.

    I did get the soundtrack. There're a few songs on it that aren't in the movie, but all the best one's are in it. I like Midgight Radio and the wig song the best. Me and my friends watch it over and over at 3AM when we should be sleeping. Life is beautiful.

    What is the last movie you saw? and rate it.

    Can be in theatres or at home.

    Matrix Revolutions (Yeah I know. I'm way behind.) What an utter piece of crap! Can't somebody please put the Wachowski bothers and their pseudo-profundity out of their misery????

    i watched "Big Fish" last night. it wasnt quite what i expected, but i did enjoy it. rate it? i would have to say seven out of ten. there were some disjointed scenes that were hard to follow, and some of the acting was a bit shallow. however, it starts with five, just because it was a Tim Burton film, and because it was all about fantasy.
    Then we sat on the edge of the earth, with our feet dangling over the side, and marvelled that we had found each other.

    I like what he was trying to say about the imagination's ability to construct reality, but IMO he didn't say it well. I feel let down by Burton. He has the capacity for genius, but some of his work is just brutal (e.g. Sleepy Hollow , Planet of the Apes .)

    Have to agree with you on that one. I loved the first movie, and was eagerly awaiting for the last one to wrap it all up. And then ...nothing. The third movie just shows that there was nothing underneath the oh-so-elegant surface.

    "The Stepford Wives"
    Really funny and had imo one of the greatest endings ever!
    But, I am a really big feminist, so a lot of the movie annoyed me excessively.

    So, I would give it a 7, mainly for the humour and ending

    Mystic River. It was pretty good, I'd give it an 8.

    Actually, I thought Sleepy Hollow was great. Have you read the tale? Burton did an amazing job with that movie, even when it's not one of his best jobs. That being said, I agree 100% about Planet of the Apes.

    Watched "Sling Blade" last night on cable TV. I've always preferred low budget indie films to the big time Hollywood productions. I'd give it an 8. The "Frank" character was a little too perfect for an adolescent.
