Did anyone mention Charlize in The Cider House Rules? Not the best of all time, but it wasn't bad at all.

Strangely enough, I'd put it back on my NF queue some time back and it came up this week. I re-watched it last night, and it was still very good the second time around. And Dakota Fanning was...

True, he did a very good job on that one, and it's a really good movie. I think I posted a review of that some time back. Sarah Polly wrote/directed that one, right? I like all her stuff.

Not all of his stuff is like that. I think he does a good job in 50/50, which is also a quite good movie.

But wait, you are changing the argument. You said it was a win for NK. Now you are saying it's a win for Dear Leader. I agree it's a win for him, but not for his country or his people, which was my...

But it makes no difference what his people think about him. It's a completely totalitarian society. He could have just told them he did it, whether he did or not, and they'd have believed it. He's...

I'm having a little trouble understanding any of that. I'm certainly VERY against our country lowering itself morally by engaging in illegal activity. As they say, freedom isn't free, and we have to...

Someone on another forum had a funny idea. Sony should just claimed that they were hacked, and the hackers stole the movie and posted it on the internet.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... The internet is a joke. It was never designed for what it's being used for. It's an almost completely impossible to protect system. This is ironic since...

Sia has monster pipes. Here tune "The Church of What's Happening Now" is an amazing example of what she can do. Makes my big toe shoot up into my boot every time I hear it.

I'm not a particular fan of the genre, but I would say that "Man on Fire" goes well beyond the bounds of a strictly revenge type movie. It is that in a big way, but it's incredibly powerful...
