And yesterday I watched "Bewitched" - by babe Nicole Kidman. This movie is just for entertainment (somehow a same species like "Meet the Fockers") Nicole Kidman has been trying very hard to 'alive' Samantha in the classical TV Drama series - Bewitched.

No one can replace Elizabeth Montgomery.

Closer was a well acted movie....but depressing none the less :(

Jun Lei, i agree with you, Elizabeth Montgomery is too lengendary!

And Joz, I 've never seen Closer tho the scripts are spectacular! Many great quotes are coming from that just reminds of how womaniser Jude Law is (and his film in Alfie and his real life with is maid...sigh)

hey cikusang, the last time i went to watch international movies at gsc was that french canadian movie that won the oscars. something barbarian invasions was it? and that was on a free tix. some of the int. movies i've seen recently are 'the piano teacher', 'the motorcycle diaries', 'swimming pool', 'irreversible' and 'seven swords'. i'm dying to watch '2046' coz i just love 'in the mood for love'. sluggish but beautiful cinematography.

I heard Seven Swords was crap. People don't know how to do proper wuxia these days.

But 2046 and In The Mood For Love were great!

Went to see Crash last night - I thought it was quite good. Don Cheadle was great as usual, and Sandra Bullock was cast in a role completely unlike her usual girl-next-door, saccarinny (thats a word!) ones.

It was a depressing film though...kind of reminded me how nuts the world is!

Sorry, Closer was just painful. I felt like I was watching the sequel to Alfie without any of the lighter moments to break up the monotony. We kept watching in hopes that it would improve, sadly it did not. By the end, I felt that none of the characters were worthy of the happiness they so vehemently thought they deserved. There are only so many times you can say, "I just want the truth!" and then become a bigger jackass (than what you were before) when you get what you have asked for. Misery loves company and they were all in good company in that one.

We watched Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle right before Closer. I wish we had saved it for part 2 of the double-feature. I took for granted it would be rather stupid, but was surprised instead. It was one of those silly, fun movies and I didn't want to strangle all the characters after the first 15 minutes. (Without A Paddle was a surprise too - silly and fun.)

A great sleeper movie was Wooly Boys with Peter Fonda and Kris Kristopherson. It's a coming-of-age movie for Fonda's character's grandson. It's heartwarming and very well acted.

Watch DAWN OF THE DEAD... I have never seen a movie with the fastest moving Zombie.

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
Hey, hey, hey. What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, oh, ya, ya-a...

We saw Broken Flowers over the weekend. It was pretty good, although deliberatley slow. Bill Murray sure can say a lot while not saying anything. It wasn't fall-off-the-chair fantastic, but I like movies that don't spell everything out for you as if you were too thick to figure it out. I'd give it a B+!

Might seem a little camp for a red blooded male but i love nature films but both of the "Shiloh" films, (about a beagle that is so cute)

Not so much a film but a documentary on film called Daylight Robbery 1 & 2 (all about cheeky little squirrels, tis great)

there is another one i know about an orphan fox that i have myself, tis a lovely film, if i can find it i shall post the name up here
