Movies, anyone?

Posted by BekkaH on August 23, 2003, at 16:59:52

Have any of you seen any good movies lately, either in the theater or on video? How about OPEN RANGE? That's new, and I've heard it's good, but I haven't seen it yet.

Hadn't even heard of that one. My therapist said "Winged Migration" is good as is "Bend it like Beckham", but she's really into the independent film thing.

Unfortunately, due to lack of time or money or motivation or whatever the excuse happens to be today, I haven't seen any new movies either in the theater or on video lately! Keep meaning to, but just haven't.

Hi, I saw *Bringing Down The House* with Queen Latifah and Steve Martin~~cute and pretty funny with a great ending. What is Bend it like Beckham about? Is it good in anyone's opinion?
Just wondering...................:-)

I saw Adaptation for the first time recently on DVD. I liked it much more than expected. If you liked Being John Malkovich you would probably like it (same writer, and that movie figures in the plot).

Also saw Pirates of the Caribbean in a theater. If you like Johnny Depp it is a real treat. The way he plays his part is really funny. I don't like action adventure much as a rule but enjoyed this one (I love Johnny Depp).

Hi Penny. Thanks for mentioning those. I'm not familiar with the first one, but I heard that BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM is good. I'll have to look up WINGED MIGRATION. I did see SEABISCUIT, and I liked it. It is uplifting -- a "Hollywood ending", but that's OK because it's a true story!!

Hi Galkeepinon,

Thanks for mentioning that movie. I love to see comedies. Funny movies are the newest addition to my antidepressant regimen! Steve Martin is almost always funny. There's only one movie of his that I didn't like, and that was ALL OF ME, but almost everyone else I know liked it. I've heard he's working on a movie adapted from a book he wrote. I think the title is "SHOPGIRL" or something like that.

Hi Tabitha,
Yes, I did like BEING JOHN MALKOVICH, so I will look for ADAPTATION. I've heard that Meryl Streep is in it, and I've always liked her. She doesn't seem to be acting much lately. I guess most of the roles are going to younger actresses, but she's the best! I've heard good things about the pirate movie, too.

I forgot to answer your question. . .I have not seen BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, but I read a review that said it's a bit like an Indian version of MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING. Some reviewers called it MY BIG FAT INDIAN WEDDING. I think it's about an Indian family that lives in England. The daughter wants to make a career out of playing soccer, much to her family's dismay. I think the title refers to a famous British soccer player whose name is Beckham and his style of playing the game.

being John Malkovich. His shoes were much too big for me and i had to act all pompous. nyuk nyuk.
No really, it was one of my faves. It's a funny question though really. A favorite movie- i think some people could name one immediately (like a favorite book) but i don't think I can. When my husband and I first "met"(on an internet dating site), and we were only at the e-mailing stage, he asked me what some of my favorites movies were. He told me his. You can tell so much about a person from the movies they liked. I remember I called my sister and said, "He said he liked 'American Beauty' but 'Gandhi' too! He has good taste!". Very biased of me of course, but...

Anyway, i'd prefer a list of movies and I could say liked/didn't like. Because i just can't retrieve all of them. In addition to that, my tastes have REALLY changed over the years. i just saw 'Boogie Nights' for the second time after about 3 or 4 years. My whole outlook and feelings have changed.

>If you like Johnny Depp
Mmmm, Johnny Depp...thanks, now I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight.

"Winged Migration", the previews talk about it being a study in the migration of birds, the scenery was beautiful. My building principal saw it and loved it. I didn't, I wasn't sure I would like all that flying.

"Whale Rider", absolutely terrific wonderful story about generations in a Maori family (watered down synopsis--also women' rights?)


"The Swimming Pool", another artsy film. I really enjoyed it, a British mystery author with a "block" takes her publicist(with whom she seems to have had more than just a business relationship) up on his offer to use his villa in France to get "unstuck". What she winds up writing is basically the plot of the movie. Great film with an interesting ending.

Another great movie was the "Rabbit Fence" (Ithink). It takes place in rural Australia and the conflict with"Mixed blood" children. Really great film. It made me so angry about how disruptive government can be.

I can never tell one actor from the other so when I saw "Pirates of the Caribbean", I didn't even know who Johnny Depp was in the movie. He's not as cute as I was led to believe but the movie was great!
