Still need to sit down and watch the Da Vinci Code (got in on Playstation 2 as well he he)

We liked The Da Vince Code.
My problem - I had read The Da Vinci Code followed by Angels & Demons awhile ago. Both have Langdon as the main character. I kept confusing them in my head so I would be waiting for particular things to happen, just to realize that they were actually part of the Angels & Demons storyline.

-----------------

We also watched Clerks II and Cars over the weekend.

Clerks II turned out to be better than I expected. I like Kevin Smith movies (though have not seen Mallrats), but was still surprised it was as good as it was. Then again, I felt the same way about Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. (Which I know is not a Kevin Smith film.)

Cars was cute. Definitely has the appeal for kids, but also throws in little things that only adults will recognize/know. Nice homage to Michael Jordan in the beginning too. Personally, I'm not a big fan of animated movies, but I'd watch this one again. (More than I can say for Over the Hedge.)

Is there another Harold and Kumar movie!?!

I loved the "Get the munchies" one.

Working title: Harold and Kumar Go To Amsterdam

It's slated to begin production in January, 2007 with a release date of 2008. So, the answer right now is... Maybe...

The Departed was a brilliant movie. I skipped the DaVinci code because the book was so horrible.

Fast & the Furious, Tokyo Drift - better than i thought it was going to be.
Worlds fastest Indian - a great classic film (one deffinately to see).
Sin City - brilliant
Revolver - good gritty gangland film.

We watched Miami Vice and Ice Age 2: The Meltdown over the weekend.

I was looking forward to Miami Vice... Though it was grittier and not filmed in "pretty pinks & purples" (thankfully), it was 1.5 hours too long. Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx did the best they could with what they were given, but Michael Mann stuck to his formulaic rehash of the original series. I'm not sure what I was expecting but what I got was a one hour episode stretched out way to long and a swooning Farrell. I will take one of the boats though... (Maybe it's just because I'm not a big Michael Mann fan for starters.)

Again, as with Cars, I was more pleased with Ice Age...

Also watched Pirates 2 again - Sorry Phil - still good regardless of Orlando Bloom.

--------------------

I agree with Jase with World's Fastest Indian amd Sin City. Both were excellent.

Casino Royale was amazing! Probably one of the best Bond films ever.

Casino Royale is next on my list!

Otherwise, last night I saw 'The Holiday' and it was way better than I expected. Really nice romantic/comedy and not that predictable either!
