Just a thread to mention the last film you watched. You may write a little comment about it if you want.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I

I was a bit disappointed and it's my least favourite from the series so far. I can't really say much because I haven't read the book tho.

My last movie was also the last Harry Potter one. And I thought it actually to be t h e best of the series. It captured so perfectly the spirit of the book. For once, I'm actually looking forward to the next movie.
But I've read the books.
Maybe the problem is that I haven't read the book, but I still think it was pointless to split it in 2 movies. Maybe I'll enjoy this last movie better after watching Part II.

Last night: Gladiator. It was beautiful with a good performance by Oliver Reed, but some of the scenes were just too unbelievable. Not least the end where they leave the Emperor lying in the sand to rot. Listen closely to the crowd in the final duel. They are cheering because their Emperor is getting an *** whooping! What did he ever do to them?!

My little review there.

The last movie / film I saw was Secretariat . I know nothing about horses, racing, or any other type of sports. Why, even the Olympics are Greek to me. I merely went because a lady friend wanted to go. I was surprised at how caught up in it I became. I even did a little research into the horse racing history afterward. The creatures seem to love it, and that was an aspect I had never known before. It does make it more interesting to me.

Usually I live on a steady diet of science fiction, historical dramas, or classics. It was nice to get a little more well rounded (like the rest of me is getting).

Very funny western with Marlene Dietrich and James Stewart from 1939 (often considered the best year ever in Hollywood movie history). Most of the movies I watch are from the 1920's up to and including the 1970's.

Saw the Patrick Stewart/Richard E. Grant version of ACC on Sunday. I quite like it as it invokes the atmosphere and social injustices of early-ish 19th century London well. That said, the Sim portrayal of Scrooge is without equal. I like 'A Muppet Christmas Carol' as well. Oh, and the Blackadder xmas special where the reversal of the Scrooge story is both funny and clever. Hope to see all of these this week.

Last night I went to my daughter's house for our annual screening of It's a Wonderful Life. It has to be one of the darkest Christmas movies I've seen. Jimmy Stewart really looks like he's having a breakdown. Of course, then I had to go to YouTube to see the Saturday Night Live alternate ending with Dana Carvey, where they beat the tar out of Mr. Potter.
