True , but I didn't find it as

similar as some people (*cough*step-dad*cough*) said it would be . I thought it was going to be so alike it

wasn't even funny . But it wasn't. It was just a small town and community service that I found similar . And I

thought he would have to fix the fence .

Carribean 3, Harry Potter, and some others, nothing much really. :P

I really can't stand all this commercial fuss at the moment.. it's just way too much. I'm

only looking forward to Ratatouille.

I looooove classic films. It doesn't matter the genre, old movies

are better. Much better film scores as well. Some of my favourites are Bride of Frankenstein, Our Town, Dracula

(the 1931 version), The Good Bad and the Ugly, Vertigo, Psycho, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Magnificent

Seven, The Fearless Vampire Killers, Blow-Up, and a bunch of others that I can't think of at the

moment.

And I adore Disney films, but especially the classics such as Fantasia and The Three

Caballeros.

Aggie - I whole-heartedly

agree with you there, Aggie. I just watched The Good, the Bad, and the

Ugly
last night with my family, and it's astounding how much more advanced and intruiging films

were back then in terms of story-telling and -- as you stated -- score. Of course, there were always those select

few cheesy films that didn't quite make the cut, but still....

Everything now-a-days is special effects,

special effects, and special effects. It's fine to view a beautiful picture on screen, but if the story isn't

effective or note-worthy then...what's the point?

Oh, and I do have to admit that I absolutely

love Peter Jackson's King Kong. Some people liked it,

others hated it. I thought it was simply stunning.... :)

Aggie: My school's Film Club president is an

incredible fan of Batman. He can not wait for that movie. I did not see the movie that came before this. But I

heard it was good.

Batman

Begins
is currently my 14th favorite movie of all time. The Dark

Knight
(as the sequel is called) is certainly highly anticipated in my book. For the record, I

actually didn't have too much of a problem with the previous four Batman movies before Batman

Begins
(i.e., Batman, Batman Returns,

Batman Forever, and, yes, Batman and Robin). I guess

the mediocre acting (IMHO) in the last one was rather obtrusive to the film, but overall, it was pretty

enjoyable, along with the other three that preceded it. However, they are nowhere near the level of brilliance

that Batman Begins has achieved (Batman Begins is

supposed to be a reboot of the franchise, and after watching it, I became really glad that they started

over).

In regards to Indiana Jones 4, I haven't officially seen the first

three (you can look at my previous post which should explain why I said "officially"), but I'm excited

to see those three, so I guess I'm quite excited to see the fourth one as well. It is a Lucas-Spielberg

collaboration after all - what more can you ask for? :)

Finally, I actually just added The

Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
to the list of films that I'm most interested in watching. I was

doing some research (for fun) on recent Honorary Academy Award recipient Ennio Morricone, and I stumbled upon the

premise of this Western flick. I don't usually watch Westerns, but the premise of this particular film is great,

and I hope the movie follows through.

Oh, and one more thing: I haven't seen a single Alfred Hitchcock

film in my life - not one! A lot of people say that

Psycho is his best work, and it probably is, except the last time I voluntarily saw

a horror fillm was about eight to ten years ago, and I'm not really too keen on the idea of seeing another one

and getting disturbed for about a month. The Hitchcock film that I actually want to watch is Rear

Window
; I rented this from my city's public library just before I went to university, but I never

got the chance to watch it, unfortunately.
Latest movie(s) to make it to my list of top films:
"Toy Story 3" (#5 spot)

CountSolo - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is

definitely a "must-see" film for those who love westerns and a great premise of a story. I absolutely

love it and hail it as one of Clint Eastwood's best performances, if I do say so myself.

And

"gasp" -- you haven't seen any Alfred Hitchcock films?! Oh, but you must!

There are so many great ones! Rear Window (my favorite), The

Birds
, Vertigo, Psycho....
I haven't

seen "Psycho" yet, but I'm working on it.

Probably my most

favorite live action movie of all time has to be First Knight with Sean Connery, Richard Guere and much more. I

love the setting, the fights, the costumes, etc.
