    David Copperfield with Dame Maggy Smith and Daniel Radcliff. Really good and I must say Daniel did a great job.

    Glad I'm not the only one impacted by this. I've been thinking about it since yesterday and finally had to google the dude and read more about him. I was just blown away by the complete and utter honesty and truthfulness and then had to take a hard look at myself. I think I'm going to watch it again today.

    it's an outstanding, brave film. i just wish it had gotten more mainstream attention.

    Julie and Julia

    This was on TMN last night and I went to IMDB beforehand to see what people thought of it. I have to agree with most of the reviewers that the best parts of the film were about Julia and Paul. Nora Ephron really did an overhaul on Julie Powell to make her more likeable. If you read the reviews for the book Julie and Julia at Amazon, apparently the real Julie is whiny, bitchy, completely self-centred, mean to her husband, and a real pig. The book got very bad reviews with almost every second person telling you to skip Powell's book and read Child's My Life in France instead. A lot of the reviewers were very disappointed that the actual Julie/Julia Project didn't get much mention and more than one person seemed to think, based on Powell's own comments, that she didn't even like cooking that much.

    If Powell didn't focus much on the cooking or the food, which is the whole point of a cook-through blog, then I would have to agree with Julia Child who thought the whole thing was just a stunt for attention. It really did not change her in any way or make her a better person. Apparently, in her follow-up book [which merited even worse reviews than the first one], she writes about cheating on her husband. Klassy.

    I took a peek at the blog quite some time ago and wasn't terribly impressed. Maybe I'll go back and give it another look.

    i didn't read the book and had never even heard of the project before seeing the movie (on a really long flight after i'd watched the other films i wanted to see) and i thought it sucked. the julia parts are good but julie came across as whiny, bitchy, self-centred and mean to her husband in the movie, and if that is the improved version, i can only imagine what she's like in real life!

    "A Clockwork Orange".. amazing as always. I think my favorite part about this film is the music.. Kubrick integrated it in such a great way.

    My husband preferred the Julie parts, but that was because he couldn't stand the way Meryl was talking. Me on the other hand, loved the Julia parts and thought the Julie parts dragged on and on. If the movie had been just about Julia and Paul, I would have been perfectly happy.

    Julie seemed whiny and self centered in the movie, if they had to make her more likable in the movie, she must be a mega-bitch in real life.

    Repo Men

    I loved it! Great story, though the ending kinda pissed me off.
    But Jude is a nice bonus.
