Ali isnt bad, but couldve been much better. The fight scenes and set pieces are excellent, as is the acting...but the script and the camerawork is just a bit too slow. Given that the film supposedly covers the 10 most action packed years of Ali's life...that action is spread pretty thin over 3 hours.

I saw Ali and Tenenbaums on that list.
Ali...so so, good acting, story focus seemed in the wrong place, dragged a bit.

Royal Tenebaums...very funny, if you like off-beat, dark humor. This one I recommend.

Hey!! Shipping News is about Newfoundland....I'm from Newfoundland.

I've heard mixed reviews but go and see it anyway. We're all pretty proud over here that we actually had Kevin Spacey right here in our very midst

Seriously, I think we have an interesting culture with our own unique dialect... I hope they presented it good.

Royal Tenenbaums was wonderful - sad, sweet and disturbing at the same time!

Wonderful script and acting!

Uhm... lol! You *may* want to see the movie... Made me want to visit NF, but never, ever live there... But no disrespect intended!! Not at all! I am a fellow Canadian...

Maddie--> The Shipping News is great. I recommend it. Plus Kevin Spacey is super sexy.

I wanna see the Shipping News too, I've heard mixed reviews as well, but the bad ones not from sources I'd care to trust, rather make up my own mind.
I've read the book, maybe a year ago or something, it was really cool, and I could imagine it would translate quite well onscreen, the scenery is meant to be gorgeous too, so another reason to go, and well Kevin Spacey is a great actor, though apparently this is quite a different role for him, having read the book I can believe that.
Still wanna go though, I dont get to the cinema enough

ACH damn!

Never saw and forgot to ask til now....I see America has the film 'The Time Machine' out....please can someone let me know about that one?

It would interest Rodney, and me needy to knowy

also we are NOT going to see 'We Were Soldiers' not while its like Saving Private Ryan.........

and we did go see Beautiful Mind........actually not what I expected, but John Nash made me wanna cry..........esp near the end when those little f*kers made fun of the way he walked.........cause unfort my handicapped brother walks a little like that, and loads prob laugh and make fun of him......

sorry I thought BM would be very similar to Affleck and Damons film........

Royal Tenenbaums was excellent.

I haven't seen the other films, but even though I love Kevin Spacey TSN holds no interest for me whatsoever.

Haven't been able to see many movies lately *sob* but I did see the Royal Tenenbaums -- very, very good. I really want to see it again. It is completely excellent.

I was disappointed in the Mothman Prophecies. The film was shot 40 miles from where I live, and I got to see Richard Gere in person.
