So...when's the Wedding?
And, most people can wander out of their comfort zone because they have an open mind. I think, if you are honest with yourself, you would admit...that ain't you lil sis. There isn't anything wrong with that. You have strong opinions. I wouldn't argue with you or try to get you to enjoy something you have a built in distaste for.
A man(or woman)'s got to know his(or her) limitations
And if you can't trust Dirty Harry, well who can ya trust?
Just finished this...
Was it perfect? No. Started strong and turned into a surreal portrait of what it's like to be betrayed. Wouldn't have been a problem if it hadn't been so clumsily handled. Shame really, because this movie NEEDS to be seen for the performances. Strong across the board, Ian McShane as a high-rolling 'poof' and John Hurt as a very cranky old man with ridiculous dentures especially. And I will say it as an American...English people use English so much better than we do. This movie's dialogue is variations of f*** and c***(the male form) with various words thrown in to add flavor...and it's poetry. The ending and ambiguity of a certain important detail were kind of a drag too. Solid rental worth seeing for the language and performances alone.
If you edited all the emo romance crap out of this movie, it would be so much better. I just wade through it because I love the planes.
Just got done with this...based on Robert E. Howard's 'other' character...man lives life of sin, finds out his soul is damned, and gives up violence to atone for his sins...not-so-fast...
It's a decent flick, James Purefoy(Rome) in the part that Hugh Jackman wishes he had got, some nice swordplay action, and even a decent cgi boss-villain at the very end. This film is 2 or 3 years old and has no distribution stateside. Shame, because I have seen a lot worse. Kinda reminded me of a more sophisticated version of those old drive in classics like DeathStalker, etc.
Also worth seeing for Pete Posthelwaite in one of his last appearances.
I didn't know that they made a Solomon Kane film!
Saw this with Kq the other day. Not bad. A little heavy handed and obvious, but still, not bad. I like Adrien Brody...Forest Whitaker too. Clifton Collins Jr and Cam Gigandet are pretty good in it too. Worth a netflix.

Saw this last week. And even given that Green has made Hatchet 1+2...this is his best/truest HORROR film. This is a random event that could happen(it's deceptive how the gears mesh together). And you see real human reactions to a situation. Personally...too much for me. I can watch psycho chainsaw killers till the cows come home, but these REAL horror flicks freak me the hell out. Well done/acted all around.
