2 Movies to Avoid

In the Bedroom is on top ten lists, but why? Its sooo slow, and soooo boring. When we went into the theater, a woman stopped another woman who was a friend of hers and said "hey, wait, don't go to that, its so boring." The morality of it sucks also.

Another one that is so boring, and so slow, plus makes you absolutely freeze, is The Shipping News. Nothing goes on in it at all, and certainly nothing any of us would care about. They are all so cold, that you get really cold.

Ha! Because in this movie, they are never in the bedroom, no one ever is. Its a couple of middle-aged men who talk through 3/4 of it.

How could any movie called "In The Bedroom" be boring?

A movie that is not boring is "The Royal Tenembaums". It is the one with Gene Hackman, Ben Stiller, Gwyneth Paltrow, etc. It is really funny. It is from the same writer/director of Rushmore which is also good!!!

One to see-well, I really loved it-'A Beautiful Mind'.

Oscar worthy acting from Russell Crowe, in my opinion-and a captivating story, based on the life of John Nash. He is a brilliant mathematician who also had schizophrenia. He overcame it enough to win the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1994.

I loved the Royal Tennenbaums. Did anyone else feel like they were watching an adaption of an unknown John Irving novel when they saw it? Gwynneth Paltrow's relationship with her brother, her failed and self-destructive affairs and his obsession with her were very reminiscent of an Irving novel called The Hotel New Hampshire. Also Paltrow is physically maimed in simultaneously amusing and disturbing scene. Very Irving-ish.
Oh, and Ben Stillers obsession with the health and safety of his children felt like a real nod to the World According to Garp.

I wish that I had walked out after Tom Cruise's character fell asleep on the sidewalk in "Vanilla Sky." An interesting concept, but the punch-line just didn't seem to fit the rest of the film well.

Ya gotta see "How High" if you like stupid, juvenile humour.

"Behind Enemy Lines" had some great "combat" scenes.

Yes, CHITTY, CHITTY BANG BANG -

The freak that steals the kids is a total whako, I wanted to smack him he was grotesque, even my 11 year old was freaked by him, but the best part of the movie is that the late Benny Hill plays the toymaker!!

Okay, but I have to admit, Tommy Boy rocks - too bad Chris Farley had to go and die - I am rambling -sorry

I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one. This movie was intentionally slower in pace and took some time with character development. I actually thought it was rather well done. Capra-esque in fact. Definitely not your typical movie of our fast-paced short-attention-spanned time period, but a good movie. Anyways, that's all.

Thanks. Will definitely go see the Royal Tennanbaums. Going to see Gosford Park tomorrow night. Can't even stand to continue seeing the advertisements for The Shipping News, as it makes me freezing cold. The entire movie they were all shivering. Kevin Spacey is always wonderful, but that movie is a big bore. Almost left it and went to The Majestic after 1 hr., but apparently wouldn't have made a difference!
