    Watched two movies back to back last night, first up was John Q, a good Denzel Washington movie about a man trying everything to get his son on a heart donar's list after he realises he has been screwed by his insurance company. One criticism would be SPOILER: a bit of a Hollywood ending, but sure we need that sometimes I guess.

    Then we went on to The Colour Purple, haven't watched it in years so wanted to revisit it and it's still a very powerful movie. Great performances from Danny Glover, Oprah Winfrey and especially Whoopi Goldberg. If you haven't watched I'd recommend it in an instant

    has anyone seen a movie called "adam and paul".
    storyline is about two dublin junkies stumbling through a drug hazed existence,going from one bad situ to another...very dark comedy,with ending probably somewhat true to life but extemely sad...one of the main actors sadly passed away this year from cancer in his mid thirties.an excellent actor.film is a few years old ,but if you haven't seen it, try to!!!

    Watched Hancock with the kids last weekend. Wasnt as enjoyable as I thought it would be but they loved it. It was ok but so easy to know what was gonna happen next. Perfect for the drink addled mind but since have been off the booze for weeks I just found it dull.

    Watched Die Hard 2 last night and its still great.

    Speaking of old movies. Last night, I flicked onto Sky Movies and Jaws 2 was on. Its not aged well.

    I forgot about the bit where the Shark eats the helicopter - including the pilot - who was sporting a groovy, Amish Community style beard.

    Alas, the beard alone was no match for the psychotic, 25 foot Great White Shark.

    I didn't like the film for some different reasons.

    No opening titles.
    Arab shouting 'Yella' during the opening shot. A blank screen. 'Yella' is just 'Let's go' (or 'come on' as translated in the film shortly afterwards) or 'allez'. When I here it as a cliché I start to be wary.
    (I don't know an American production where I havn't heard it. When a small amout of Arabic is used.) 'Sneil' or 'Raus' is becoming the appropiate translation.

    Topology was all wrong. For Northern Iraq they had that Erg/Hamada stony stuff that's found in the Sahara.
    There's a reference to torture from Laurence of Arabia's 'Seven Pillars' at Dera'a, Syria. (Laurence got it up the bum from the Turkish soliders.)

    Good production. I was expecting some inspiration. Than at the end Ridley Scott is the first closing credit. I blame myself.


    There was a scene where the Stars and Stripes were surounded by three Star of David window frames, that's about as subtle as Ridley Scott gets.
    My fear is that with 'Black Hawk Down', 'Jerusalem' the Crusader one where he positioned Jerusalem on a flat desert in Morocco (don't tell Scott about the Temple Mount or the Mount of Olives. What a Dick.) Anyway, my concern is that Ridley Scott may be considered an expert on the Middle East/ Holyland. Jesus.
    " I'll go right up to here,
    it can't possibly hurt.
    All they will find is my
    beer and my shirt."

    Saw "Burn After Reading" at the weekend. Had to stick with it at times but it was a rewarding watch overall with some great performances.

    Agree that the "What have we learned" scene is very funny.

    Watched a few now in the last few days

    Taken : actually pretty good for what it is.
    Saw 5 : havent gotten to the end yet but its fairly poor but has remembered the main reason behind the traps and not just to have pointless gore.
    Step brothers : 2nd time watching this love it its very funny.
    Resident evil degeneration : looks like a movie length game intro sequence really but i like it but then again i really liked the movies !!!

    Thought it was brilliant

    Jolie was fantastic I have to say probably shoo in for Best Actress at the Oscars

    A few relatively unknown actors gave great performances

    Hancock - very poor. Thank God it only lasted 80 minutes or so. Finished off the mist earlier in the week and was also disappointed. Class ending though.

    Must have been awkward with the fella sitting there beside you.
    A leading authority on League of Ireland football since 2003. You're probably wrong.
