 I don't know, I really loved Farscape.</green>
 
 Ooops!  I forgot about Farscape - but that was made by an Australian company and bought by SciFi so there's my escape from being in error.

                Just seen Wild at heart for the first time (at last)
 
 -It has Malkavians.Malkavians everywere...
 -Bobby Peru was not as cool as the fans claimed him to be.
 -I allso need a snake leather jacket to express my believe in individuality and personal freedom.
 -Cage's Elvis complex: It's allways around the corner.
 -Such a cute couple..

 Heh, I loved wild at heart.
 "Fuck me"
 "Maybe later"
 
 Just saw the new Willy Wonka.  It's a movie that made me wonder why I watched it.  Not bad, not good, not wierd enough to be interesting, just *yawn*.
 
 Also watched The Island.  I'd rate that as a fairly good action flick with a little bit of a brain at least in the beggining.  If you come not expecting much you'll like it.
 
 Also watched the Brother's Grimm (or whatever its called).  Mildly diverting, good visuals, good actors wasted in minor support roles.  Never really came thru on the promise.

 I didn't understand why The Island didn't do better. The story was original, Ewen is a really good actor and the action scenes were pretty intense.

                First, on Narnia, if you go into it looking for parallels to Christianity, you will find them.  Aslan is certainly a Christ figure, there is a Judas figure, etc.  But the fact is, that the story does stand on its own, and as an Agnostic, I didn't find it to be in my face should tell you something.  The roles are more analogous than anything else, Aslan is not Christ, he is Narnia's equivalent to Christ.  It shows Christian virtues, but isn't preachy.  If more Christians in the US were like this movie, I'd be a lot happier with the state of things here.
 
 As an added review, I saw Munich the other night.  It is an interesting movie.  It is a fictionalized account of the Israeli reprisals of assassinating Palestinian leaders after the Black September plot at the Munich Olympics.  In general, it used good filmmaking techniques, kept a lot of ambiguous stuff unexplained and captured a great sense of the uncertainties involved in the covert world.  (For example, the team gets a lot of information from one information broker, but it is never clear if that broker is also selling information about them to others.)  One thing it does really well is show the toll that the operation takes on the members of the team, both in how the bloodshed affects them, and the paranoia that develops when they are being hunted by the other side.  Throughout the film the main character dreams of the Munich operation, and additionally newscasts are shown from the time (with the interesting part that much of the newscasts are done by sports journalists, so you get to see Howard Cosell and Dick Enberg covering the hostage crisis and how the Black Septemberists used the TV coverage to see when the German Police were moving in to lay siege to the place).

                Say, does anyone agree when i say The crow is the most tragic movie ever made?
 
 Eric and Shelly were just so happy together...and then they both got tortured to death.
 
 Allso, there is Brandon Lee's more then a little dramatic fate in the real world.
 
 I can't put the finger on it really, but it all feels sooo sad and beautyfull i actually came close to tears at the end.

                Well Bloodrayne debuted today but the studio refused to provide an advanced screening for the critics - a sure sign that the movie is irredemably bad.  I was thinking of seeing it but now I'll wait out the few weeks till its out on video.

                <red>EDISON</red>
 I just watched this travesty and for the love of all the good things in this world do not, I repeat, do not watch this "movie". The only thing good in this movie is that it is direct to video. Seeing Justin Timberlake in the credits should have clued me in. I thought having Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey also in the movie would have drowned out Timberlake's whinning and by god he's whinning the entireity of the movie, I was wishing the whole time the bad cops to just shoot him dead to stop the girly whinning. Edison is confused whether it wants to be a hard-boiled cop drama or a summer action flick. Avoid this like plague.
 
 The local cinema just put a <yellow>HOSTEL</yellow> poster on it's coming soon board. The reviews were generally good. Anybody seen this already?

                I haven't seen Hostel but I have a friend who did and I read the plot on http://www.themoviespoiler.com/.   (By the way don't use this site unless you want completely ruin all the surprises).  Very nasty, very gory flick and after having read the plot I can say that's really all the movie has, well it does have a few Tarintino touches that are darkly amusing.

 I think I'll give Hostel a chance.  I really enjoyed Eli Roth's other movie, .Cabin Fever

                Saw 2.
 Pretty far-fetched plot. Not even sure what happened in the film, it sort of continues the storyline from part one which I have seen but forgotten.

 I kept nodding off during saw.  The only part that was even slightly interesting was the very end (dont want to spoil it).  I wouldnt watch saw 2 if it was free.
 
 I saw munich.  It was okay.  I expect more from spielberg.
