I saw V for Vendetta the other night (and for the record, I really hate Australia's lag in movie releases). Great film, should be seen by everyone at least once...

I'm going to see it again!

Recently I've seen V for Vendetta, twice. Still not as good as the comic, but highly enjoyable.
Stay Alive was so horrible that if you get a kick out of seeing absolutely terrible movies, it was actually worth the admission price.
And Ice Age 2 was better than the first, and I guess okay. Wouldn't recommend it or anything though.

When was the V for Vendetta comic published? I'd like to know to know because the story was very relevant for today's political climate.

1980's I think
Just bought walk the Line a few days ago, I liked it personally but I have friends who aren't Cash fans and hated it.

I saw Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame yesterday and really enjoyed it. Even though it doesn't follow the original story religiously, it's still the most adult Disney movie I've seen. The early scene in front of the cathedral is just chilling.

I just watched Dark Kingdom: The Dragon Lord last night. Pretty good, but dreadful acting. But, the actress who played the Queen of Iceland in it was hawt.

Last film I watched at the cinema was Alien Autopsy...Avoid. It's crap.

One film I would recommend though is Lucky Number Slevin, really enjoyed it. predictable twist at the end? Yeah, perhaps...but it's still a great film

I recently watched Reservoir Dogs again, which was an excellent movie. I finally realized why that guy picked complete strangers to work together... so that they couldn't rat eachother out. Quentin Tarantino at one of his finest.

Definately want to see X men 3. I was obsessed with the second one when it came out. Can't wait to see it.

Anyone seen the DaVinci code? Is it any good?

I just saw it and...... WHOA!

It's not likely that anyone else has seen it just yet, so I'm keeping my gob shut.

I'm a bit of an X-Fan so yeah... WHOA! I'm satisfied

Few bits here and there that were a bit "um.... oookay" but overall...

... WHOA!

BIG PIECE OF ADVICE!!! WATCH UNTIL THE END OF THE CREDITS!!!

I'll have to add that to the list of movies I need to see!

I recently watched the 1996 Doctor Who TV Movie, but I'm still trying to make up my mind about it. Perhaps a second viewing is in order. Although its...ok, I find its heavily americanised, and being a fan of the Doctor, and being english, I find that this is a bit of a letdown.

Still the 8th doctor in it does have like 70-80 novels from the BBC, so meh..

Saw, X-Men 3 about ten days ago, it's OK, but it's not as good as the first two parts. Some of the characters are completely unnecessary to the story and there's a lot more action and a lot less conversation.

I saw X3 recently as well. I thought number 2 was waaaaay better, but it was still enjoyable. I hated how they invented two new mutants (mister spikey face and run-fast girl) instead of tapping into the vast xmen universe to make up the bad guys. AND, no Nightcrawler! What the hell? he was the best mutant from X2!

I just bought Antz on DVD and saw the English dub for the first time. Wow, the movie is a lot stronger with the original voice work. Woody Allen is just brilliant as Z and all the other celebrity voices match their characters perfectly.

I'm not really a fan of computer animated movies, but this one is definitely one of the best. I love it how the plot line is a little more adult and political than in your average children's movie. It can still be enjoyed by kids, though I think you have to be at least a teen to get all the jokes and references.

I have no idea why people keep telling me that A Bug's Life is better than this. Rubbish, I say.

Two ant based movies from Pixar and dreamworks come out at about the same time, then two fish movies come out at around the same time... pretty coincidental ...

Not to mention two movies about toys. Also, doesn't Disney have a movie called The Wild which is pretty similar to Madacasgar?

I actually read some articles about how there is a lot of stolen ideas and competition for the audiences behind the similarities. Here is some info about the mess with Antz/A Bug's Life.

I think it's due for 2007 some time. Shrek over Shrek 2 any day of the week. Any day of the year infact.

The other day I saw a movie called 2:37. It's about a teenage suicide and teen problems in general. It sounds a bit cliche and it some parts it is but it makes up for it by very confronting and graphic. It deals with issues in probably the most realistic way I've seen. It also is an Australian film which really added to the realism for me since I'm used to watching american films.

I recommend it to anyone who likes watching movies that leave you silent and introspectivei n your seat after the credits have finished.

I saw the Pirates of the Caribbean sequel around a week ago. I liked it a lot more than the original, but I understand the criticism some people have directed at it. I'm just happy my favourite character (Norrington) hadn't been forgotten.

Also, I recently purchased a movie called Bubba Ho-Tep or something like that, but I haven't had the time to watch it yet. I've been told it's good. Has anyone here seen it?

Seen it twice and loved it both times! But I think they needed to harshly cut some of the scenes in the first hour because it takes ages to get going. But as soon as it gets going it never looks back.

You know, you and me have very similar tastes in charachters!

I saw Snakes on a Plane.

...I got cancer from that movie, but also developed an immunity to it during the climax of the film.

Also I saw Donnie Darko yesterday, heard it was good, picked it up and it kicked extra ass.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

I saw The Butterfly effect yesterday. A movie that really made me think about stuff that I haven't in a while, It was great. Even though I hate Ashton Kutcher.

The Butterfly Effect is awsome. Too bad the sequel is being released next year: new cast, new director (drums and trumpets... JOHN LEONETTI!!! The worst director in Hollywood, with other flops like Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, WTF?). That movie is doomed to go straight to DVD.

I definitely agree. I have really high expectations about the third movie, but at the same time, I'm not sure if they can solve all the plot lines they just started.

Wow, another Norrington fan? There aren't too many of us.

EDIT: Pho3nix! You're Finnish! I'm too.

Tallageda Nights: The balla of Ricky Bobby. Seems stupid, kinda is, but is definitely worth it. I thought I'd piss myself with all the laughing I did. The experience was enhanced since i went with a pretty wild crowd.

Never read the comic, but this is the BEST MOVIE EVER!

Another good movie: Alive! (1993). Have you guys ever seen it?
