The Blade movies blow chunks. Saw the first (unfortunately) and have not seen the sequels (fortunately).

As for the latest movie I've seen... the Manchurian Candidate.

Interesting in it's own way. My favourite parts were the "throw away" one liners and the subtle Elvis impersonator gag. Nice spoof of consiracy theories made me reinterpret what the film makers were trying to say. I thought the movie was taking itself too seriously until I saw Elvis.

Pirates of the Caribbean. That film is the epitome of hoot, as in what a hoot! There's nothing like a swashbuckling adventure :D

Yesterday, I saw The Story of the Weeping Camel. What a facinating film. We have this small, very personal cinima which is dedicated to alternative movies.

I would defiantly recommend this movie, it's very refreshing and simply stunning. Though do not expect very much action/nudity.

I can quite honestly say, that I have never heard of the film. Care to elaborate?

I can understand that, it's one of those movies that, at least in Denmark, is perhaps only shown in one or two cinemas in the whole country...

My latest: Chinatown, and what an awesome experience that was, especially the ending left me stunned...

Casablanca has one of the best lines EVAR!

Chronicles of Riddick...

Borrowed the DVD from a colleague.

To sum up the movie: Whoa! :shock:

I was truly and duly impressed by this movie. Both with the story and the acting.

I don't think I have seen that much suckage for so many contigeous minutes in one single movie :)

I thought Day after Tomorrow was my worst experience, but this one beats it hands down. Having suffered exposure to it, I can now slam it with good conscience 8)

I must say i actually enjoyed that movie, because it was so terribly bad.
It did have some nice action though, and Vin Diesel is the worst fighter-movie actor of this time, his oneliners are the worst out there around now.

Lady G and I watched the Anchorman with Will Ferrell. WIthout a doubt the stupidest movie I've seen in a long long time. I thin at laughed twice and that was at the stupidity of the movie, certainly not it's feeble attempt at humour.
