Yeah he was good but had no where to go with it. The story just degenerated into some cliche climactic battle ala Porkys, Grease or whatever. They had so much to work with - anti-conscription riots, lynchings, corrupt politics (all the makings of a great yarn) .... and what do we get. De Caprio and his sunken chest drooling over some bint with baaad eye-sight. Pathetic !

.. I'm kinda into LoTR: The Two Towers at the moment. Especially since I have the rip from the DVD that were sent out to members of the Academy. Of course, I'll be waiting with my credit card in hand to get the DVD once they bothers to release it in August.

"Chicago" - I went to see this for one reason....the last out of nowhere Oscar contender I can remember was LA Confidential, which I didn't bother to see in the theaters, but fell in love with once I saw it on video. Not wanting to repeat the mistake, I forked out the $7.75 for this Oscar winning musical.
And that's all it was. A Broadway musical on film. While I know great acting enough to recognize the sizzling performances from Zellwegger, Zeta-Jones, Gere et all, I would have much preferred to see this on stage rather than on film. (And I'm not a huge fan of this particular music to begin with). As a musical, it was swell. As a movie? Eh.
"The Core" was just fun, nothing more. Another one of those concepts that could be great, if they'd obsess less about what cool special effects they could plug in.
"LOTR The Two Towers" was great (I'm very biased), BUT...I liked Fellowship better. Jackson is starting to take some generous creative license from Tolkien's masterpiece, and I don't think it neccessarily lends more to the story (In the Movie, Treebeard comes across as borderline psychotic. And Faramir is a dick. Then again, I hated his Galadriel too......she talks like she's been smoking some of that famous Lorien ganja.) Still, I can't wait till Return of the King.

I have seen Anger Management and Spirited Away. Tonight I am going to see a screening of Down With Love starring Ewan McGregor and Renee Zelweger. I can not wait for Charlies Angles 2 starring MY GIRL: Drew Barrymore!!! *YAY*
I thought Anger Management was funny and I really liked the story in Spirited Away. Especially the dragon.

A couple of my friends & I were going to go see "Anger Management" or "Holes" last weekend, but didn't get to. I think the movie will be as good as the book, in terms of "Holes".
Most recent movies I've seen-
-Saw "Daredevil" a few weeks ago.....it was OK, could have been better.
-"Darkness Falls" before that, which was an OK movie...got better toward the end. I got bored after a while, to be honest.
-"The Ring". This movie is amazing! The story pieces itself together as it goes along, the actors do a good job & it was really entertaining. I really liked it & would recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it.
-I saw a movie in November or December with Katie Holmes, supposed to be a suspense movie. Don't know the title, but it wasn't very good.
-"Die Another Day". Horrible theme song, crappy movie. Absolute waste of time....only James Bond movie I can say that about. As I like to say, "it would have made Ian Fleming turn over in his grave"
Does "Anger Management" follow the "typical Adam Sandler storyline"? I like Adam Sandler, he's a funny guy, but it seems like all his movies go:
"Sandler's hard-luck-duck character is introduced, has life-changing event, meets girl, likes girl, somebody's out to screw him, girl leaves him, life-changing event goes bad due to badguy screwing Sandler over, girl makes startling discovery, life-changing event gets better, relationship turns better, happily ever after, the end"? It was pretty much this way in "Happy Gilmore" (awesome movie), "Mr. Deeds", and "Big Daddy" (good movie).

Just bought some DVD's from Best Buy. So I've just seen the Matrix for the first time. Well I saw it once before but I fell asleep before it was more then 15mins in to it. This time I choose to watch in the morning. Smart idea because I watched the whole thing and I think it was a great movie. I really liked it. Besides from that I've watched Goodfellas and Remember the Titans. Both great movies.
