One of the most confusing movies i have ever seen along with Time Travellers Wife, but that was a good confusing movie. So far i've only liked her in Pretty Women.

Gremlins 7/10

terrific movie and atmosphere. Real nostalgic 80's there and brings back lots of childhood memories. Phoebe cates is very sweet too. Shes aged today but still nice.

Mm-hmm. I attempted to watch this maybe 3 or 4 days back. It was all over the place. Zero chemistry between the two.

I saw 'Toy Story' for the first time just now. Very nice animation. Can't believe it took me 14 years to see this. I'll check out part 2 once I find it at a decent price.

Had a rewatch on A Perfect World, not a fan of Costner but I really enjoy this one. Put the Stockholm Syndrome perfectly on film And great acting.

Rented this a couple weeks back, and I'm glad I didn't pay full price in the theater for it. I enjoyed the plot, thought the story was well crafted. The two turn offs for me were: Julia, as a rule; and the lack of chemistry between her and Clive. Nice plot twist at the end, though.

Here's the thing that immediately got me.

Spoiler
He meets Roberts, sleeps with her she disappears.
He meets her again, finds out she's the contact they have a conversation about this, then she splits.
He meets her a third time, then complains about the 1st time right off the bat as to how she 'seduced' him for info. It just seemed weird and out of place that this wasn't brought up in their second meeting you know.

I dunno, I really couldn't get into this at all.

I thought Duplicity was just an OK movie. I'm not a big Julia fan either and I felt that Julia and Clive just didn't work well together.

OMG! What's wrong with you mister? Or miss, whatever you are, heh. Toy Story 1 & 2 are the best animated Pixar films ever!

Waaah! I love this movie too! Too bad no one else saw it.

^ I saw it ages ago. I think it's time for a rewatch and I like Costner.

Last night I watched a sweet little Norwegian movie about a man who feels lost when he retires.
