    Not to mention the previews looked awful! *shudder*

    Nice imagery.

    I actually kind of liked it too. Canít say the same about Road Trip though. Iím not sure, but I think it was so bad that Iíve forgotten most of it.

    That just arrived by mail yesterday, and Iím looking forward to watching it. I really like Franka Potente a lot. Her part wasnít particularly challenging in the first Bourne movie, and itís still kind of weird listening to her speak in English, but Iíll buy just about any movie if sheís in it.

    Realistic tone, ridiculous plot. I hated it. I hated it even more because I forgot to return it. I paid double the rental price for it. If it was a good movie like Bourne Supremacy, I would've remembered.

    I fear this might garner another tongue-lashing from happyblue (), but we rented Dodgeball the other night and I LOVED it! Silly, slapsticky goodness. GO BALLS DEEP!

    Watch Mean Girls and really liked it.

    Saw the Terminal a couple of weeks ago and would give it 2.75/4 stars. Tom Hanks did an amazing job.

    No tongue-lashing from me, Snowflakegirl. The worser the movie, the guiltier the pleasure. I found The Girl Next Door just very dull. Not even worthy of the "it's so bad it's good" title ... like Dodgeball.

    This is so stupid it's hysterical. There's no in-between about the Farrelly brothers' humor. You'll love or hate.

    The Terminal - Just rented this last night Another great Spielberg movie, Tom Hanks was excellent in this, his role here sort of reminds me of Castaway, the way he is all alone, and has to figure out how to fend for himself. Great movie.

    Saw the Dawn of the Dead remake (unrated director's cut)...absolutely loved it. Not just because I'm a Sarah Polley fan, either. I rarely notice stuff like the camera work (unless it's really unusual, like The Blair Witch Project), but I really enjoyed the way this film was shot. And the *video* clips while the credits were being run were hysterical.

    Oh, and the music was great. I'm generally a Lilith Fair kinda gal, aside from my Henry Rollins obsession and my former headbanger days of the '80's, but I would love this soundtrack. Anyone know if it's available, and where?

    I thought that same exact thing. I felt he was playing the same exact role but with a little twist.

    Glad to see I'm not the only gal who loved Dawn of the Dead around here. Great movie.

    You, know I'm surprised that they don't have the new soundtrack available for sale (I checked Amazon Canada for you, and couldn't find it), but here is a listing of the songs used from IMDB, if you want to seek out the tracks on your own:

    I'm currently watching season one of Dead Like Me on DVD, and I just love this show. "My So-Called Teen Afterlife"!
