Re: Movie You're Watching Tonight

I'm doing a re-watch of Stuart: A Life Backwards. A beautifully poignant, ofttimes funny, and ultimately tragic true story of Stuart Shorter.

One of Tom Hardy's finest acting roles.

Re: The Great Gatsby

I really cannot wait to see this film. The sense of theatre that Baz Luhrmann brings to his films alone is worth the ticket price. Unfortunately it doesn't open here until May 30th. :(

Re: What movie have you seen the most times?

Probably The Empire Strikes Back...no doubt followed by the other two SW OT movies; A New Hope, and Return of the Jedi.

Or maybe it's The Magic Sword:Quest for Camelot; my son's favourite movie...
