Last film I saw at the cinema: Scooby Doo 2. An OK film, but I have to admit the main reasons I watched it are Linda Cardinelli (plays Velma, and Sam in ER) and Sarah Michelle Geller (plays Daphne, and Buffy in Buffy). 7/10.

Last film I saw on DVD/video: Can't really remember. It's Underworld or League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and I thoroughly enjoyed both.

"Dungeons & Dragons: The Movie" (DVD - only a fiver, LOL)

Script & acting...not great, but I've seen much worse.

FX & action were OK.

The main hero (played by Justin Whalin - Jimmy Olsen from "Lois & Clark") was...OK.

The female lead (Zoe McLellan) was...quite nice, in a "smart & sexy" way ;) (I have a weakness for brainy brunettes)

The "Empress" character (played by Jane Burnham - the daughter in American Beauty) was a bit of a poor "Queen Amidala wannabe".

The "comedy sidekick" character was annoying & unfunny...which is to be expected from any character played by Marlon Wayans IMO.

The main bad guy, however, was played by a wonderfully OTT Jeremy Irons. Each scene with him was great, just for his cheesy & OTT acting. His main henchman (Bruce Payne) was also good in a cheesy & OTT way.

Hmm.

Not a great movie, but not crap.

6/10.

"Thirteen Days" (DVD) - 8/10

Very good dramatisation of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Well made, with a good cast (despite Kevin Costner's baffling accent).

Well paced, & manages to increase the tension despite you knowing how it ends.

"Equilibriam" (no idea if i spelt that correctly) interesting film, bit matrixesque in parts, with a bit of a moral to the story 7/10

Kill Bill Vol2 at the Cinema a couple of weeks ago (7/10).....much preferred Vol1. Far too much dialogue about her daughter, etc. and just wanted to see Uma kick ar$e. A bit disappointed with the ending as well.

Sense and Sensibility on DVD a couple of nights ago 9/10.

Left Behind (www.leftbehind-themovie.com) - I suspect not many people here will have heard of it, it's a modern day take on Revelations. It started off as a series of books which were awesome (sold more than 50 million) and it was only going to be a matter of time before they made a film.

Saying that.....the film is truly awful. Terrible acting, VERY low budget effects, poor casting, sub-plots which don't make sense....

I bought the DVD as it was on special offer - this doesn't even come up to the standard of a made-for-tv film, which is a shame as it should have been a LOT better.

3/10.

Van Helsing

well what can i say van boring this movie sucked big time there was just not enough story to keep it going at any sort of pace whatever plot there was just made the picture even worse and as for kate backinsale's fake transylvanian accent don't go there !!!

Finally saw Pirates of the Caribbean a couple of weeks ago after avoiding it for a long time because I was worried I wouldn't enjoy it. Great fun though and with some very pleasing men in it :D . An 8/10.

Saw Lost in Translation at the cinema earlier this week. Wonderful film. A 10 for me.

i agree the film was a complete let down. The characters, i thought, were badly cast, however i tried buying a copy but apparently it is american so not compatible over here :confused:


saw dreamcatcher a while ago too and i agree with miss c it was fantastic
