Gunslinger's Revenge

David Bowie as a cowboy on the bad side intrigued me enough to rent it

Done well, that could've been interesting, but it also sounds like it might've been painfully bad to watch.

So, Da Vinci Code: good for 12 year olds



And tell her to hurry up and finish the book!
Daughter still reading the book, but Mom went to catch a late showing of the movie. I agree with your rating 8/10. I enjoyed the movie - seeing some visuals made things a little clearer in some parts. There are a few parts of the movie not in the book & vice versa. Or the manner of how things happened (don't want to give spoilers away for those first reading the book or who haven't seen the movie). I turned away when Silas was punishing himself - so that might have been a "gruesome" bit. There was a sudden 'violent' scene with Silas, and the people sitting behind me jumped - it was kinda funny afterwards (I think they were embarrassed). I like Tom Hanks, he was alright in the role of Langdon. Don't know who I would have cast in his place. Ian McKellan was great though!

And when my daughter finishes the book, I'll take her to see if.

I took my 11 year old son last week, we both thoroughly enjoyed the film.

10/10
One of the greatest movies of all time

Oh and my latest movie is Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants- Even though it's a bit sappy it's still a great movie to watch no matter what your age is.

I watched The Family Stone last night. It was frustrating--great characters who were handled completely wrong. It's one of those movies that I'd like to rewrite, because the characters deserved better. Too many almost great scenes were wrecked by trite, corny dialogue. Some of the changes near the end felt forced. I won't ruin it for everyone, but what happened to Diane Keaton's character didn't need to happen and felt like it was tacked on to give the movie "substance" that I think it could've found elsewhere.

I give it 5/10

Watched most of Speed 2 last night. Missed the ending... I'm guessing everything probably all turned out alright..

Was that good? It's pretty far down in my Netflix queue, but I was thinking of bumping it up.

You should definitely bump it up. The cinematography was really gorgeous and striking. The scenery in South America was breathtaking . Gael García Bernal and Rodrigo de la Serna truly carried the movie with their natural acting. You almost forgot you're watching actors on screen. One of my favorite movies of 2004

Yes, yes, yes.

I was lucky to see it on the big screen last year...some of the shots took my breath away.

Da Vinci Code last night. Enjoyed better than what I expected after the local media reviews. 7/10.

Tom Hanks didn't convince me as Robert Langdon, Audrey Tatou works as Sophie Neveu (even though in the book she strikes me as a bit of a Amazonian type), best casting was IMO Ian McKellen and Silas. Jean Reno rarely dissapoints too.

I completely misread that as Janet Reno. Oh man, I need more coffee!
