Anyone here like sparkly vampires who talk about "their feelings"?

Didn't think so.

haven't read the books or seen the films, but to me it looks like some teenage breaks up with a gay vampire to be with an even gayer werewolf

"Does"? Last I read her wikiPEELia page I got the feeling she doesn't like sparkly vampires who talk about "their feelings".

Reservoir Dogs

It was ok. I already knew how it was going to end after the first guy got shot. Pulp Fiction was better.

Dougal and the Blue Cat

I never thought I'd hear the words "take him to the torture chamber" in a U rated film but they were uttered in this Magic Roundabout film. As a child in the '70s I watched the television series but as far as I'm aware I never saw this film. Having heard UK film critic Mark Kermode frequently rave about how great this film is I decided to seek it out and must say he was right it is a great film, the eighty minutes just flew past.

Things in the Magic Garden are a little strange, Dougal is having strange dreams about something going on in a disused factory and shortly after Buxton, a blue cat, appears and is instantly popular with everybody except Dougal. Buxton isn't as friendly as he appears and plans to become king with the help of the mysterious Madam Blue in the factory. In order to carry out his plans he captures everybody except Dougal who is forced to dye his hair blue and call himself Blue Peter in order to try to rescue them.

All of the regular characters are here although the new Buxton steals the show with his evil plotting and diabolically sweet torture of Dougal. The animation may look dated next to today's shiny CGI but it is good enough and the great story and fun characters more than make up for that. It is a shame that this great animation doesn't have a DVD release as it is an utter delight and belongs in the collection of any animation fan.

Haven't seen it, but Kermode was right about Curse Of The Were Rabbit, one of the best movies of 2005 if not the decade!

I remembered Magic Roundabout from TV when I was a child but I was astonished at how different* they came across when I had the chance to see some of the episodes during my university days.

* i.e., inspired by psychedelia

I watched that clip as well. Heh heh.

I haven't seen any new movies lately. Saw Titanic for the first time in at least 10 years last night. I never really thought about that movie looking like it had aged. But it has.

I agree. There were some very horribly directed scenes and some very horrible acting moments in this.

I haven't seen any Twilight films but I saw a clip on TV and must say the CGI werewolf transformation looked terrible, the instant change was no were near as good as the slow and painful changes in films like An American Werewolf in London or A Company of Wolves.

A Film With Me In It
Morbidly dark comedy written by and starring Dylan Moran and Mark Doherty (and his brother David, and Irish comedian) about two men who just happen to be around a few accidental deaths all on the same day all in their flat, all over the course of a few hours.

I found it very tragicomedic! big grin

Speaking of Jason Isaacs.

The Patriot

Not the most historically accurate movie as the British come off far worse than they actually were but still interesting. The story is interesting and as crazy as Mel Gibson is he gives a good showing. As do Jason Isaacs who always seems to be an excellent villian and Tom Wilkinson, who always seems to be playing some kind of general. The way colonial era warfare was relatively faithful to history excluding some miraculous shots from infamously inacurate weapons.

The changes (from what I remember) are not described as being painful in the books - or slow.  An intimidate change like what they show is more what I expected after reading the book.

And Bianca - if you are really over twilight and think its bad, why did you see it in its first release.  I actually enjoy the movie and wont go see it for another few weeks.

My only other issue - Kristen Stewart is a bad actress.  She can't emote.  At all.  Even though she isn't supposed to be playing the same character in every movie she makes, it all comes out that way.

I never said it was bad, the books were good, I still like them, I'm just not obsessed with them like I was before.
