    I saw 300 recently and it's actually pretty good. Snyder has a great hand for bringin the world of the graphic novel to the screen. I hope he does equally well with his next project, Watchmen.

    I just saw Happy Feet. Penguin dances to his own tune and gets kicked out of the penguin community. A story of growing-up and being true to yourself.

    Nice movies both. Boggie is one of my favourite actors - tough guys.

    Nice thing to study directors in college. My University - lessons were quite different and sometimes dull. I like very much what i studied and i like my work very much..but you know these artistic studies are something different.

    Yes, I always try to get thier films and any other old films that look appealing. I have two out right now from my library. Can't wait to view them. Going there again tonight to return 4 things and get two more CD's to download. Can't have enough movies or music!

    manolia, Yes, it really was fun. But I went to college (Philadephia College of Art) in the 70's and it was pre-video days. We watched actual films on screens - not real large, but projected, nice. It was one of my most favorite and fun classes. I loved it. Art school was a blast - I had all different type classes relating to art and the arts. Now my school is the Philadelphia University for the Arts - can you even imagine what it is like now (?) - includes dance and theater, etc. I would have been in my glory. But, I had a good film teacher and I learned about the all time greats - Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, W.C. Fields, Capa, Houston, Ford, and all the other guys who paved the way for today's directors and producers. So, I was truly blessed and it gave me this avid and broad interest in all types of films.

    Naimh, I think they were pulling your leg, but I will look up his biography again for our satisfaction. By the way, I keep a whole folder of photos of the guy. I have a bunch of film stars I like in a bigger file.
    It would have been nice if he were an identical twin so we could both have one to keep.

    Oh, I have been one (a groupy) for sometime now! Yes, cloning Joseph sounds reasonable. He should be cloned and more than once. He was so darn sexy in those bedroom scenes in "Shakespeare in Love" - that guy is gorgeous.

    Last movie i saw was "The passion of Christ" 5/10. I didn't like it. It was a violent movie with Christ beaten to death (almost) in every scene. In fact i think it is a boring film. A slow paced film and although i generally like slow paced films i was bored with this one. And was it really necessary to have such a bloodbath? It made me sick

    Woo, I agree totally -- I love Bogie!

    We rented that silly movie, Borat last night.... hmmmmm, I really did NOT like this movie one bit. Too slap-stick for me, I guess, did anyone else see it? I give it a 1/10.

    kiz-paws,
    I like Bogie, too. What was the name of that film where they introduced Laren Bacall? I like that one. I have seen it a couple of times but never can recall the title. He fell for her in that film. She was really young, built incredible and was so sexy, no wonder he fell head over heals. She was really sultry.

    My friend, Lynne, and I never agree on films. She loved "Miss Sunshine", I really did not. I knew she was going to tell me about "Borat", and I have no desire to see this silly, stupid film. It looks too cras for me. I would not waste my time on it. So glad you wrote this post, kiz-paws. I am sure I would agree if I saw it (1/10), but I won't even bother.

    The last movie I watched was The Usual Suspects: In the aftermath of a ship, conflagurating and sinking on the open ocean, presumed to be carrying a host of notorious drug dealers and buyers, initiating millions of dollars worth of illegal trade, only one survivor of the catastrophe may tell the story in his own words. When the rest of the survivor's underground crew are discovered to have died on the drugged ship except the arch-leader, Keaton, an official team interrogates the survivor and pushes him to great lengths to tell the tale. The movie consummates on a beautiful twist, after sending the viewer through a joyride of heart thumping scenes which may or may not have been the complete facts---

    You and I have conflicting views. Mel Gibson directed that film flawlessly in my opinion.

    I agree, I liked the movie. Yes, I think Mel Gibson did a wonderful job in his meticulous directing of the film. I especially liked the ending with the nail marks on the risen Christ's hands. I thought Jim Caveizel did a fine job of acting in that film. He has a introspective quality and wonderfully expressive eyes. I felt he fit the Christ image well. I do think other versions of 'the Passion' are a bit cleaned up. Yes, the whipping scene was awful, but that is in the bible. I really did not know what all the fuss was about the film, when it first came out - all the negative contraversy. The violence was no worse than "Lord of the Rings Trilogy" or the new film "300" and people eat that stuff up. If it is real life they seem not to tolerate it. Go figure that one out....
