yes, the first film was rather cute, as was the book, but it went downhill from there.

Invictus :thumbup: and Paradise Now :thumbup:

not really into the post-apocalyptic genre OR the bible as the basis for religion. Seemed like a waste of time to me.

reminded me of some other film I've seen, where everyone had a book memorized. Can't remember the name of it.

it was a bad weekend for movies. every one I watched left me unentertained and wishing I could have those hours back.

I generally enjoy post-apocalyptic stuff, but Book of Eli was utter, utter crap. Worse than a 'meh'.

Apocolypto is quite the most brutal film i've ever seen but it's done in a way that makes you think this could have been a day in the life of the ancient Mayans. If you haven't seen it then order it off Amazon right now!

I agree. It was rather gory but the Mayans were gory people.

Never Let Me Go - one of the weirdest films I've ever seen. :shock:

I quite liked Taking Woodstock, which I saw recently.

Working my way through Twin Peaks with my partner. Much fun. Good with lamb curry or roast chicken.

It's not a brilliant or good film in the sense of a classic, but its characters are quirky and the story is 'age appropriate' for us older folks. It's based on the real story behind organising a venue for the Woodstock fest. It's not a laugh a minute, but it's off-beat and the soundtrack's great. It's got real rock n' roll, and it has soul. Soundtrack reminds one of the dirty, funky, sexy, primal roots of rock...
