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?

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

I thought it was decent. I do have to agree with Willy though. It does seem like it is Smith playing the role not the person he is supposed to be. I did hear that he did an amazing job in "The Pursuit of Happiness" though. Any by the way, for all those people who haven't seen Juno, go and see it now. It is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. Style of movie is a bit different but it is the same guy who directed "Thank you for Smoking". That one was a bit different also, good, but different.

Juno's not out here yet. I'm off to see a preview on Monday though. :D

Have to say, having read I am Legend years ago, I avoided this Will Smith film like the plague. ( ;) )
From all the pre release interviews I'd read and later, the reviews, it seems that yet again the hollywood machine has taken HUGE liberties with source material that a lot of people, myself included, were rather fond of. :(

Im a Trekkie... :lol:

In answer to the chap below, Heath Ledger was a legend... Hence the conversation about the movie... Also, he would of been excellent in Star Trek, a conversation is being had about that very subject on IMDB atm...

He might not have been the best comedian around, but he had the balls to go on tv and on stage with a very visable physical disability. That i had major respect for. He had real problems with cancer and laukemia (sp?) before he got taken into hospital on the 25th, and in a way i was glad to see him go via 'the old mans friend'... The best way to go apparently...

RIP Jeremy

Possibly the most depressing article i have read in my life: http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/ate/cancer/202478.html :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I didnt think Neumonia was that serious, i mean i knew it could kill you but i thought it was quite rare modern day (even then those who do are prob. elderly).

Was it a suprise or what?!

It's much easier to die of pneumonia if you are having treatment for Leukaemia at the time... limited immune response.

Not that depressing. The man made his choice. What's far more depressing is when they fail to diagnose correctly and the victim ends up in the same position.

And then if you want really depressing, you want to read the UN papers on the decisions regarding whether to intervene in Rwanda in '94, and their ultimate decision to pull the UN forces out....
