At the movies

Here's the movie thread

 

Hobbie, hello and I did rent a movie that I thought I'd tell you about:

Warm Springs, with Kenneth Branaugh. Its about FDR and his recovery from polio before he decided to run for public office. The actress playing Elanor Roosevelt did a very good job, I thought.

This is what i like about your recommendations, SweetP... Most of the time it's about movies that i've never heard of. Not too sure if i'll be abble to find this one here, but i'll have a look, cause most of the time i find Branagh to be good...

 

I recently saw a nice movie The Syrian Bride. It terms of filmography it's far from being the best ever, but the context of the story is very interesting and actors are great.

oooh! i saw 'the syrian bride'. it was like a palestinian "monsoon wedding". :roll: but it was really nice as a story, i thought. very much a tearjerker. the bit with the u.n. representative running between the two 'offices' was so ridiculous and so infuriating by the end of it.

 

i saw a film called 'duma'. it's like a modern 'born free'. the boy's a terrible actor but then if i had a lifesize cheetah as my co-actor, i don't know how good an actor i would be. :p some of the film is nice but very stereotypical. i saw the copy that the studio had shown as a preview. :roll: amazing what pirates can acquire. :lol:

I've no intention of seeing it, but that message made me laugh out loud.

 

I saw the Green Mile last night for the first time. Really enjoyed it. Michael Clarke Duncan was excellent.

 

Must go and see Walk the Line and Munich this week.

I liked it. And Craig is a huge Johnny Cash fan. He thought that Joaquin did a fine job.

 

And Hobbie, Warm Springs was an HBO film.

I've seen a few clips of Warm Springs (whilst watching the Golden Globes, actually :blush:) and it looked quite good. Have always been a bit of a Branagh fan.

 

I saw the trailer for the Da Vinci Code the other day - looks a lot better than I thought it would (apart from Tom Hanks' hairdo :what:)

I want to see Brokeback Mountain.

Saw the trailer of TDVC the other day, did Tom Hanks look very young or is it an optical illusion/plastic surgery/good makeup?

I didn't like it at all.

Probably make up. The desciption of Langdon in the book is nothing like Tom Hanks.

Nothing really happens in the movie. I found it quite boring, to be honest. But pretty to look at (the scenery, I mean).

 

Oggi didn't like it either.

A Tom Hanks fan? :teaser:
