    Not quite a film, but it was originally, I saw The Producers on Saturday (Theatre Royal, Drury Lane) with Lee Evans & Nathan Lane, very well written, funny show, and a quality moment when the set broke and Evans had to improvise for a few minutes - what a pro!

    The Burbs - quality 80s film.
    Mullholland Drive - not my cuppa tea, bit wanky.
    Gangster No1 - Quite Good, bonus points for a good torture scene.
    Autin Powers 1 and 2 - both crap.

    Good films to watch with the missus...
    Bridget Jones Diary 2 - not as good as the first one but a few laughs
    Deliver Us From Eva - Good film, romantic comedy thingy

    Bad films to watch with the missus...
    Deer Hunter - old but one of my favorite films of all time but too much for the ladies
    Man On Fire - out on DVD a while here - maybe recently there too? Well worth a trip to Blockbusters

    Saw this one recently - very entertaining, but it lacked real dramatic urgency. I was never really concerned about "would they make it on time to save the world".

    Other movie I saw recently was Garden State, which was OK. A good first effort, I'll say that much. Relatively charming, but almost too hip because it was trying so hard to be hip. Too many self-conscious Graduate references.

    Yeah, I preffered the alternate more "action film" ending, so I guess that doesn't make me so appreciative of the pathos tony scott was going on about

    sometimes it's just nice to go out with a bang ;)

    Hellboy, one of the better comic adaptations, currently dreading Constatine, though sin city looks to be shaping up well.

    Aviator, certainly more interesting than I expected. Couple of real funny moments, and a pretty good performance by Mr De'caprio, I'd almost forgotten he used to be an alright actor after some of his more recent dirge.

    Not a film, but saw the FireFly box set (joss whedon sci fi thing) the other weekend, and it was fucking great - ended up doing the "24" style marathon, and only snatching a few hours sleep before getting up to finish it off..

    and at 12 quid for the box set now on amazon it's a bargain - really looking forward to the film they're making of it..

    Ive had to put up with plenty of customer moaning about Sky Captain recently saying that it looks like a snide copy.

    Spotted about 15 flaws in "Man on Fire" although I quite enjoyed it.

    Watched "City Slickers" other day. Cant beat watching films that you used to love.

    Being forced to watch "Bridget Jones" and "White Chicks" tonight...GREAT!

    Bridget Jones is actually a good film - there ya go I said it.

    My grandmother-in-law informed me yesterday that her late husband took her to see Deep Throat way back when it was released in the cinema... TMDI!!!

    Say 'Are We There Yet' at the weekend - don't bother.

    Have I seen anything worth recommending lately? No.

    Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind...great film

    Loved it. My favorite film from last year.

    Although I despise the Academy Awards, Eternal Sunshine recieved a well deserved Oscar for best original screenplay. Charlie Kaufman is, by far, my favorite contemporary screenwriter - along with a nod to P.T. Anderson.

    Enjoyed Sideways, *really* liked Garden State, although I connected with a lot of the points he was trying to make... Constantine was a decent action flick (don't go into it expecting anything more than that... and forget that Constantine was supposed to be blonde >_<), seen Finding Neverland last night, which utterly amazing. Brilliant cinematography with fabolous acting :thumbsup:

    $15 a month at Blockbuster for as many rentals as I like (2 at a time) so I'm working my way through everything new(ish).

    Saw Anchorman last night... had a couple of moments but mostly pants.
    Also saw Cinderella Story. Predictable, wishy-washy, pants.

    Will be Dodgeball and Mean Girls tonight.

    Basically.... moreover it's like a large house, divided down the centre to make two apartments that people rent. They're reverse mirrors inside, so the same rooms/bathrooms/etc. Typically have 3-ish bedrooms. I've never heard of a top/bottom duplex, usually it's just cut in half with 2x the doors (2 front doors, 2 back doors).
