    I really disliked this movie as well. Just another bad wannabe "thriller" movie that was incredibly predictable.

    A Good Woman. This overlooked little film is an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's Lady Windemere's Fan smartly updated to 1930 and set in Italy's Amalfi Coast. It stars Helen Hunt, miscast as an aging femme fatale; Scarlet Johansson doing a pouting ingenue; and Tom Wilkerson, bringing great warmth, heart, and dignity to a role that could have come across as just a buffoon; supported by a cast of older character actors and two handsome, studly young men. This delightful movie was witty, winning, and nice to look at.

    I loved that movie too Penpoint. The costumes were great as was the scenery. I especially liked the ending.

    We rented DejaVu last night. DejaSuck is more like it.

    Alpha Dog: It wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. While it wasn't great either, it was entertaining and did keep my attention especially the last 30 minutes.

    Hannibal Rising. Dull as ditchwater and not remotely frightening. Anthony Hopkins owns the role and the actor who played him as a young man wasn't in the least bit convincing. Plus, if I'd wanted to see a war movie I'd have rented one.

    Ghost Rider: Wasn't as bad as I had prepared myself for it being. It kind of dragged in parts though. There seemed to be chunks of the movie where I found myself just waiting for something to happen. But overall, not a bad Sunday afternoon movie.

    The Wicker Man (1973). I found it to be unintentionally hilarious.

    Breach: A good movie. Dialogue heavy though, so don't watch if you want a fluff or semi fluff movie. Even Ryan's acting didn't bother me at all and I'm not his biggest fan.

    Pan's Labyrinth and The Fountain. Liked the first, the second not so much.
    Count your blessings!
