When it comes to the Da Vici code, I'd rather watch paint dry and I've been exited about paint drying.

One movie that every one should see before you die is Monty Python and the holy grail

At least the fumes from watching paint dry would keep you awake un-like this terrible film.

Hmmm. There was a televised version of Frankenstein on when I was 13. It had Danger! High Voltage! backfrop-song-ting that Channel 5 used. My dad watched it, it sounded far too scary, like the monster ripped out Dr Frankenstein young wife's heart. Tasty. then set her on fire etc etc. Im glad I didnt see it.

I watched that one in Media Studies years ago.

It was a nice modern version.

Hmm, it might have been. It was on about 4 years ago on tv, so Im guessing it had been out a couple years before that at the pics.

Well it was released in 1994, directed and staring Kenneth Branagh. Add Helen Bohnam Carter, Ian Holm, John Cleese and of course robert Di Niro and you have the film.

to see a less sympathetic version of Doctor Frankenstien, I suggest "The horror of Frankenstien" some Hammer Horror goodness.

On a completely un-related note go see Fight Club and A Clockwork Orange right now.

Clockwork Orange is a definite must see, Fight Club's a good movie too, but nowhere near Kubrik level

Speaking of Branagh, how about his Hamlet adaptation? Sure, it's a four hour movie, but worth it.   smile

Fight Club's not even close to Kubrick's level but it is one of my favorite movies. And it's spelled Kubrick sorry to nit pick.

Saw Jurassic Park on TV yesterday while I was about to go to work. I love that film. It never fails to amaze me. I'm sure everyones seen it though. The other 2 films were gash. The first was the best.

Jurassic Park's alright I never really got into it...

Now Monty Python And The Holy Grail that's a film you should see... That was completely off-topic.

By which you really mean "one of the most overrated movies ever and sentimental to the point of inducing up-chucking your dinner", right?

Anyway, some more good movies I've managed to watch in the last while since I've posted:

Dog Day Afternoon
Rashomon
The Seventh Seal
Borat
Apocalypse Now
Touch of Evil
Traffic

Aliens come to a planet where they're allergic to over 70% of the material on the surface and in the atmosphere?  Yeah... that makes 10 times less sense than how the aliens were defeated in War of the Worlds.

In fact, I think it's actually less believable than Jeff Goldblum coding an alien virus on a macbook and uploading it to an alien technology of which he's not familiar with in the least.

Are you talking about Independence Day? How about the one where the aliens are living under the ocean and then that guy breathes water and goes to visit them and then his wife had died but now she's alive again?

I only saw about the second half of that film; and I didn't get the end. Would I have gotten it, if I had seen the whole thing?

You'd have liked The Abyss.  It's a good movie, like Sphere.

Cool there is a book. I got new books. And new DVDs, including A Scanner Darkly, which was the only movie that I hadn't seen. Do you know much about it?

A Scanner Darkly is a pretty cool film, it is a bit odd at first as it is a live action film with recognisable actors which has been turned into an animation, this seems to suit the strange drug addled tone of the film though.
