    And therein lies the rub. Only a 50 yr old will get this.

    I just watched "Murder by Death" --- deliciously tongue-in-cheek, and outstandingly funny. I swear, you have not seen comedy until you've seen this gem.:)

    At the very beginning I was slightly apprehensive, but when these names came on in the opening credits, I just knew it was going to be great: Dame Maggie Smith, Sir Alec Guiness, Peter Sellers, Truman Capote, (a relatively unknown) James Cromwell...with a cast like that, you can't go wrong!

    "Zombieland". Pretty good (the Bill Murray cameo was great) but it's no "Shaun of the Dead".

    Red Cliff was good....and long.


    If you haven't seen it, I would also recommend The Legend of the Shadowless Sword

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71dl9kH_WUM


    This will draw another Crouching Tiger comparison but the action here is very entertaining.

    Fair enough, but still somewhat confusing wording.

    Seen it. It's another "wuxia" film with not much plot to speak of, but good action scenes and eye candy. The entire film is like one big chase scene. Pretty entertaining.

    I thought that movie was ok, nothing special though. Russell Brand is just plain awful, another example of the Brits great sense of humour.

    Can I just say in defence of British people that Russell Brand is not primarily known as a stand-up comedian in the UK, more as a (not very good) TV presenter.

    Go to the Edinburgh festival for an experience of the excellent quality of UK comedians.

    Fair enough. I will say that John Oliver from the Daily Show is pretty funny. His piece in the Eng/US WC match last week was hilarious.

    The A-Team.

    I used to like this show when I was a kid (mid 80s). Expected the film to be silly/ironic and I wasn't disappointed (better than trying to make it 'realistic' like the ridiculous new Batman films).

    Unfortunately, I also expected it to be poorly done and I wasn't disappointed there either (could have been worse though, see Law Abiding Citizen for a recent utterly awful Hollywood film).

    Liam Neeson as Hannibal takes about 20 minutes to say 'I love it when a plan comes together' and it sounds about as laboured as it could possibly be.

    The action scenes are fine as you would expect but that's about it really. If you're looking for an action comedy film try Kick Ass instead, that was genuinely quite funny.

    6 out of 10.

    Iron Man at home, followed closely by Iron Man II in the theatre.

    I enjoyed them not so much for the movies themselves but for how my kids invited me to watch a movie with them!

    Robert Downey Jr. is a really good actor. I was impressed.

    Re Russell Brand, he's only funny to teenagers I think, not that many of them either probably. Not a popular guy in the UK because of an incident on the radio where he said some unpleasant things on an answerphone while on air.

    Can't stand him personally, sorry for you in the US, seems he's moved over there (always seems to be on US chat shows and in rubbish movies etc anyway)

    Mystery Team - I give it a 4.5 out of 10. Three funny moments in the movie, the rest is irritating. I'll try not to spoil it.

    Scene 1. "You want me to..."
    Scene 2. The water fountain.
    Scene 3. Stop sign.

    The Remains of the Day. I recommend this movie to all of you. The movie was nominated for eight Oscars, including Best Picture. Anthony Hopkins is a main actor in this movie.

    Actually, I read somewhere that Dane Cook did watch the one with Matt Dillon.

    Post some pics, Tina! Of you, or the actress, or maybe one of each.
