Thought a MOVIES thread would be good on here..in case anyone has seen anything good in the movies and or on rental! ON rental I finally saw Talking Lives..was not bad! Good ending..w/angelina jolie and keifer sutherland..IN the reg movies I can't wait to see the ones coming up at xmas time..Meet the Fochers! That is gonna rock!!!!!! And Streisand's gonna be the mother! Hey speaking of which Trudy is Neil Diamond def. opening for her in 2005? MY mom graduated w/Neil! Said he was the nicest! He looks identical in his yr book pic to how he is now! LOL..I went to school in Bklyn with Scott Baio..but lord u never hear about him anymore! LOL..And in College I spent one semester w/Taylor Dayne! Glad she is doin so well now..she was so shy in school:) ..Did anyone see The Grudge? I didn't but heard it was ok
The last three movies I saw in the theater were...Wicker Park, Garden State and Ladder 49.
Wicker Park - horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE! It was advertised as a psychological thriller but it really wasn't - it was slow and boring and just plain BAD.
Garden State - loved it, loved it, loved it! In fact I saw this one in the theater 3 times. So so so good. Def. recommend it.
Ladder 49 - just saw this one and I enjoyed it. It's a tear-jerker though, just to warn you.
The movie my sister and I really wanted to see was The Forgotten - but then we heard it was horrible...Has anyone here seen it?
I don't want to see The Grudge cause it looks a little too "scary" for me. I like scary movies but more of the psychological thriller type.
I really want to see I <3 Huckabee and maybe the new Mike Nichols film with Julia Roberts and the guy who's in like every other movie for the rest of the year, Jude Law - I believe it's called Cancel - but I don't know much about it. I'm on the fence about Alfie - the cast looks good but the whole cutting Cher's song is highly annoying to me.
Hmmm...I can't even really think of what else is coming out? I think A Series of Unfortunate Events is coming out around Christmas (Jim Carey and Meryl Streep) and I really wanna see that but that's a ways away...
isn't it adorable how her expressions are practically the same!
NO sorry Michael I went off track was saying how Streisand will be in Xmas movie w/Stiller and then mentioned how she is touring w/neil who graduated w/my mom and then I mentioned I went to college w/Taylor! LOL..my bad! LOL..I went off the movies track under my own movies thread! LOL..too bad u were not in NYC when she played in Aida! She was great
I dunno I love travolta but found compared to others he's been in that Ladder dragged a bit..did not care for new Gere one either..just slow..Now Raising helen and Jersey girl I loved..Talking Lives is good too w/Jolie..
Di...Garden State was written and directed by Zach Braff (the guy from Scrubs) who also stars in it. It's also starring Natalie Portman. It is so so good. It's the story of a Andrew Largemen (Braff) who has moved away from home (NJ) to LA to become an actor and has lost touch with his family and friends there. He has to come home and "refind" himself when his dad calls out of the blue one day to tell him his mom has died. When he goes home he meets Sam (Portman). It has some really touching moments and many moments that are hilarious!
Yeah, Ladder 49 wasn't my favorite movie I've seen lately but I enjoyed it. I did think it was a little slow at times too Jan.
I also forgot to say in my last post that I want to see Ray too. Everyone has just been raving and raving about this movie...especially David Letterman. I've found that he doesn't rave about movies too much unless he really really likes them and when Jamie Foxx was on the show he def. went on and on about how good he thought it was and how much he liked it.
isn't it adorable how her expressions are practically the same!

Taking Lives was GRRRREAT!! There were a few scenes in there with Angelina and Ethan Hawke....Whooohoooo!!
Megan...I saw Angels in America. Was really good. Different...very, very different. Took a little while getting use to it. But all in all, I really liked it. If you'd like, I could send you my copy to view. It took me forever to watch it all! Two discs...and six chapters to that sucker! But was so worth it...the acting alone was incredible! Meryl Streep Rocked...Al Pacino, Mary Louise Parker...Emma Thompson...was very good. LMK...

Really really good...a must see! What's nice too..is it's only 89 minutes...so you're not getting the ole numb butt sitting in that chair!! LOL...Loved it though...Jake liked it too! GO SEE!!
Put on the Silkwood DVD the other night. LOVE Kurt Russell in that...HOT HOT HOT!! and the "Dolly Pelliker" character...the name itself is a hoot...OMG..Cher is so funny in it. She ROCKS! Meryl too..Her and that other girl...and when she gets her face made up like a corpse!! LOL...then when they break up..."Yeah, it's nice not being with someone that smells like formaldihide"...LOL...I have been watching a lot of Meryl's movies lately. She is one heck of a great actress. She's awesome in Angels because she plays three different characters...That lady can PLAY LITERALLY ANYTHING and she'd be great!

I d**n near died laughing...he's got the belly and all! That would have been a hoot!! So anyone seeing anything tonight? We are going to try to catch INCREDIBLES with the kids...LMK...Take care and have a wonderful weekend all! Love, Di
