True, they recasted Katie Holmes character didnt they between movies. Im guessing she's still munching her placenta with Tom Cruise...

I know this sounds kinda silly, but i still think Heath Ledger looked like Josh Hartnett

How bad does your life have to get before ‘A Knight’s Tale’ seems like a highlight?

It is a bummer to see him go. I went to see I am ledgend and the first 5 min of the Dark Knight were one of the previews. It looks kick ass. Can't wait to see it and I think that he is going to be the best Joker that the Batman franchise has ever seen. Christian Bale is by far the best Batman and this story line looks like a good one. I didn't much care for Katie Holmes in the last one. I think the other brokeback mountain guy's sister is playing her part now. I think her name is Maggie. She was in the movie the secretary. :oops: Kinda a kinky movie but it was good. Anyways, Batman is going to be awsome!!

Just out of interest, what did you think about it?

I wasn't too impressed to be honest. There were some good special effects etc, and it was making me jump every 5 minutes, but i think the story could have been a bit better and a lot of things were left unexplained.

I was disappointed with it after all the hype. My friend who I watched it with told me it was really good and that this was the 5th time he'd seen it.

I just thought it had a kinda pussy-ass ending to it, very much like the cheese-filled ending to I-Robot. I can't say I think Will Smith is a bad actor, it's just that I haven't seen a film with him in where I believed he WAS that character. He just comes across as Will Smith, like, ummm...acting.

I don't get to the cinema much and I am lazy when it comes to downloading films, I am usually a few months behind everyone else. My next "must see" is American Gangster. Been wanting to see that for yonks.

I thought 'I am Legend' was ok. Didn't like the shoe-horning in of Bob Marley etc. Went a bit corny a few times.

Saw 'No Country for Old Men' the other day and thought that was good.

Looking forward to seeing Dark Knight, Juno, Valley of Elah, Sweeny Todd, Cloverfield. possibly more if i can remember?
