    If you haven't seen I'm Not There, check it out. It's definitely an art-house film, and sorta bogs down during a few scenes, but there's some excellent stuff in it (particularly Cate Blanchett's performance).

    Saw 'The Last Casino' the other night...not a bad little Canadian flick. Nothing spectacular about the movie overall: decent acting, good script and direction...didn't look like a cheap Canadian flick. But it did grab my wife's and my interest quickly, and the tempo stayed high throughout the movie. Considering that she's not at all a gambler (and we both found the Texas Hold 'Em scenes in Casino Royale horrifically boring), this movie kept the focus shifting from characters to storyline without over-focusing on the blackjack. Overall, worth it if you've got a night to kill (on TMN On Demand this week, too).

    Of course, Hollywood went on to remake it as '21', so I'll have to watch that one sometime to see which was better.

    Is it a remake of the french movie "Ils" (Them in english I think)?

    Just watched the trailer and it sure looks like it. "Ils" was average, nothing groundbreaking in horror flick. A 7/10 at best.

    Why do people say "Italian" Mafia. All "mafia" is italian. The rest are simply OCS (Organized-Crime Syndicates).

    Mafia is derived from Ma Familia, sound pretty dumb to call the Irish Syndicate Mafia.

    well, technically, Mafia just means "mob" or "bullies".

    So saying "Italian Mafia" is like saying "Irish Mob".


    The real name of the "italian crime syndicate" is actually Cosa Nostra.

    What? Are you suggesting that the Irish aren't capable of putting together something more than just an unruly mob? That perhaps we're too drunk to ever be organized?

    Wow, religion, music and film really gets the testosterone going huh?

    I watched something that I thought was going to be awful, and it turned out to be awesome. Match Point. It was really edgy.

    Its not new btw. I got into the film business about three months ago and am having a lot of fun with it. Really interesting. Lot of flakes though, but every industry seems to have those.

    Musicals aren't for everyone certainly, but "Sweeney Todd" is one of the best i've seen in years. The look of the film is terrific, which is usually the case with Tim Burton directed films.

    Depp doesn't have a strong voice for a musical, but it's passable. The rest of the cast is great.

    The format is more like "Chicago" and "Hairspray" than "Rent" or "Phantom of The OPera", in that, there isn't musical numbers for the entire film. They take a break and tell stories through dialogue. THese musicals tend to work better on film than something like "Rent", where it's just endless musical numbers through the entire film. That gets very tiresome imo.

    I don't like Mr Leto, but that is some heavy commitment to get to look like that guy.

    I found it ok, but I really hated the obvious made up ending. What made it worse, they admit as the film ends what parts were real and not, but don't include that awful cliche ending.

    Iron Man, the movie, was garbage.

    I mean, RDJ was just great, but I would have been happier if they had just made a 30-minute movie of the action sequences, close-ups of the suit, and Gwynneth's frame as she teetered around in heels and that pencil skirt.

    I just watched Eastern Promises last week. That was some serious, serious, up-close violence.
    And except for that bit of a sausage-show in the shower scene, I really enjoyed it.

    Loved Viggo's performance in Eastern Promises. I saw it with the girlfriend by accident to be honest as we had seen all of the other movies that were playing that night. Was one of the more moving films made in the past year with some of the most realistic violence sequences I've seen. All of them were meaningful and not gratuitous for the sake of gratuity.
