Hey Pardus,

Why did you become "Eccles"?

You're still Phillip though, that's good.

I am what I am, still... I guess, anyway. Sometimes you need a change, and it's fun to confuse people...

And as for the reason why I became Eccles - because I could.

Uncle J,

Did you really like Babette's Feast? I was gonna rent it but it seemed like it would be kind of slow. I saw the other 4 you mentioned, but still not sure whether to rent Babette's Feast. Why did you like it?

Travel100:

I enjoyed Babette's Feast for a number of reasons. A French woman chef (Babette) arrives in a dismal Danish town in the middle of nowhere where everyone is apathetic. Babette spends all the money she won in a lottery on a very elaborate meal for a large group of the eccentric inhabitants. After much eating and drinking the people discover that they really enjoy each other's company contrary to what has happened in the past. There is some drama and some comedy which makes for a nice foreign film.

Snatch - Brat Pitt was incomprehensible in this movie as a gypsy

Incomprehensible, Brad Pitt in Snatch? I have been told that he does an authentic Gypsy accent by Irish people here, can anybody confirm?
He sounds a bit like Lil j, actually: "Wanna buy a dag?"

I'm sure Brad's accent was very authentic in the movie, hence incomprehensible to me as a Canadian. Great movie, absolutely hilarious; Brad was awesome as usual.

"Top Secret"with Val Kilmer... a cheesy movie from the 80's that makes fun of every war movie/spy movie/love story ever. I had to watch it twice to pick up on everything. I still crack up when I see it...
Heroine "Somethings are better left unsaid."
Hero "Like what?"
Heroine "Like, when you blow your nose into a tissue and put it in your purse and a little while later you have to reach in there for your lipstick or something and your hand gushes into it..."
(note:remember...I don't get out much;))

Never heard of that one. Val Kilmer must have been pretty young. It does remind me of a couple mivies that are "satires" of War:

The Mouse That Roared with Peter Sellers. This tiny, little country gets the idea to start a war with the US and lose so they'll get all the post war benefits of losing a war to the US, but they win and that's the funny part.

King of Hearts (French) Makes you wonder who the crazy ones are? If you've seen this movie you'll know what I mean.

Anyone seen (or heard of) either of these?

Note: I personally think 'Sepet' is our (Malaysian) 1st film - if you would like to gain an insight of how dilemma our society is, find out in this film!

HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED ANY MOVIES WHICH TAKES YOU MORE THAN 11 hours? Recently, there are a lot of films shown on Singapore Films Festival 2005:http://www.filmfest.org.sg/ where I recommend those who are interested on how people THINK ABOUT USA in middle-east, watch them...I AM VERY SURE YOU WOULD RE-ORGANIZE YOUR VALUE after watching them...trust me...

I am a very serious film-audience; I will give warning or even make my voices in the highest pitch if I found people are talking over their mobile or repeating the film-scripts or even chatting in the public cinema...no one could escape from my 'warning'!

Do anyone of you having the experience (while watching in the cinema or theatre) where people are eating their hamburgers (with the smell in the cinema) beside you or hearing the 'crack-crack' sound when they are eating the popcorns or some of them would laugh uncontrollably when the actors are showing his deepest depression on the film??? We are paying the money to watch the film and to learn something from the film but some of them do not think as such way...sigh...

I had watched all the latest films in Dutch Film Festival last month and to my astonishment, only 5-8 of us watching each film (in average)...remember what the Oscar's speaker say in 2004?

" 9 out of 10 in USA know what is "White Chick" and only 1 out of 10 will look for movies in Oscar's Nominees" and then the speaker smiled (and sighed...hahaha)...

Lee, I agree with you completely about movie watching. That is why I hate going out to the cinema. I prefer watching it at home. That way I can pause the movie if I am thirsty, hungry, or need a potty break. I can't stand when people eat, crack their gum, slurp their soda, speak during the movie or kick my seat. I also can't stand the people who have seen the movie before and have to say aloud everything that is about to happen! I also believe that cell phones should be banned from theaters! I no longer enjoy the 'movie going experience' :(

I really liked that moive! But I was lucky enough to play Helen Kokintz in the High School play;)

I love the movie, since I don't have a TV I spend a lot of time in the cinemas - and even more so now that I have a subscription (16 Euro for 1 month).

This weekend I've seen "Mysterious skin" - very good movie, interesting topic, although maybe a bit controversial, it's about Child abuse and UFO abduction and how people cope with that.
The other one I saw this afternoon is "The Jacket" with Adrien Brody. It started off very interesting and mysterious but the end just ruined it for me. It doesn't make sense to me at all. I won't go into detail so that I don't spoil it for anybody who hasn't seen it.

I am on my way to see "Seed of Chucky", I just feel like having a laugh, although I haven't seen any previous Chucky movies. But hey, I've got an Unlimited Card, I don't pay.

Back to Movies - "Top Secret"!!!!! I love that movie, we had it on video at home in Switzerland and I watched it so many times - there's always something you miss going on in the background. My favourite joke I can remember from it is the Moving Trainstation.... It's an obvious joke if you think about it, but it's done so well and it comes as a total surprise - and it's so bizarre...
I love the Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker Movies anyway, Hot Shots, Naked Gun and all the others...
BTW Did anyone ever see "Police Squad" - the 30 mins series with the Naked Gun cast (okay, most of them)?

I really liked "Mysterious Skin", very deep and emotional film, also very grim. "Hot Shots" both first and second have been my few of my favourite comedies for a long time - simply brilliant! :)
