His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass
Posted By champagnesque
Re: His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass

Those Golden Compass books make me happy. It's trying to market itself as a Christmas movie, much like the first Narnia movie was released, in early December. I hope it'll be good. I suppose there's...

Re: Your opinion on new movies

Maybe we have a greater capacity to make movies than like 50 years ago, and there's SO many more production companies, they can just churn out as much junk as they please. I think that...

Re: The Best MOVIE of ALL TIME

I still see favorite as more or less synonymous with "best movie of all time". You can't really cater this to public opinion on this kind of thing, and if you enjoyed all aspects of a film, it's...

What do you watch on T.V.?

Re: What do you watch on T.V.?

I don't watch any new tv shows. It seems like I only get into shows after they come off air and I end up having to watch reruns.

I'm obsessed with Friends. I bought the box set and my god I've...

Re: The Best MOVIE of ALL TIME

I liked Shawshank because it's one of the few linear films that tells the story in a very moving fashion beginning to end. It seems like a lot of movies skip back and forth in flashbacks, or have...

Re: What was the last movie you saw at the theaters?

Oh my gosh, I haven't been to the theater for SO long. I have a pretty good home entertainment system and I usually just rent movies and watch them by myself. So to be completely honest, the last...

Re: Actors who are always in good films

I feel kind of stupid saying this, but Judi Dench! Recently she's been in some box office hits (Casino Royale, Pride and Prejudice), some Oscar-heralded films (Shakespeare in Love, Chocolat), some...

Re: Foreign films

I don't really like distinguishing between foreign films and - what's the opposite - homegrown films? ha. They're both movies, made by people all around the world with unique insights about it. I...

Re: Peter Jackson / The Lovely Bones

I remember reading the book a few years ago and honestly I wasn't impressed. I thought the plot was clumsy and stretched out for way too long. Ahh now I regret having read the book! Whenever I read a...

Leo Dicaprio as TEDDY ROOSEVELT?

http://imdb.com/title/tt0480046/

Yeah, I know Dicaprio is Scorsese's pet actor, but you've GOT to be kidding me. Big, burly, booming, mustachioed Teddy Roosevelt? Thoughts, anyone?

Re: who do you think is the best kid actor right now?

I like that girl that plays the minor roles in movies. Like, she was in Big Fish and Walk the Line - Hailey Anne Nelson. I think she has potential. (Despite the fact that altogether I have probably...

Re: Saddest movie you have seen

Gone With the Wind. There are SO many times in that movie I found myself sobbing uncontrollably.

And I know nobody's gonna agree with me on this one, but Closer made me cry like no other.

I'd definitely agree with Citizen Kane, because it really was based on newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and it captured the spirit of that time period.

As for the others I'd pick...
