You didn't like The Godfather!? :shock: Oh well can't be helped. classic to some might not do for others I suppose. Well at least we can agree that Carlito's Way was great. Did you like Scarface, Casino and Goodfellas though?

I loved the Goodfellas!!
It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat.

The Godfather's a good movie, but not what I was talking about.
The Hogfather is a movie/mini-series based upon a Discworld novel written by Terry Prachett about Hogswatch (Christmas essentially).

Hogfather...is David Jason in it? I may have seen it, but I can't be sure.

Goodfellas and Casino yes, Scarface no.

I've just finished watching The Queen. Helen Mirren's acting was good of course. It's a nice controversial film focusing on Elizabeth II's point of view during the passing of Princess Diana. Pretty good show, though most people would prefer watching a blockbuster I guess.

Another thing that nearly threw me off my seat just now was the warning label on the DVD box. Aside from the PG rating (which I found to be redundant, what's there for a parent to advise anyway?), it says the film contains "coarse language". Haha. :?

Yesterday I saw 28 Days Later and then 28 Weeks Later. Both were pretty awesome "zombie" movies.

Also, Casino Royale. Probably one of my favourite Bond movies, and I hope that the next one is as good.

Yeah, he played Death's butler (well, elf in the movie thing) Albert.
