Re: What are you watching?

King Kong (2-Disc Special Edition)  Somehow I missed Peter Jackson's remake of King Kong when it was out in the theaters. Really outstanding visual design and effects, a far more believable relationship between Ann (Naomi Watts) and Driscoll (Adrien Brody), a touching portrayal of Kong by Andy Serkis, and even Jack Black manages to not annoy me. Gets a little draggy in the middle when they're on the island, but the beginning and the end are really top-notch. Not sure why Kong had such a poor reception when it was out at the box office. It really deserves a first look if you skipped it, or a second look if you didn't like it.

Re: What are you watching?

How did you like the series? I'm a fan, and was sad when I finished the 6th season.

Yes, I did see "Prayer of the Bone"; it takes place in Texas, USA. It was strange seeing this veddy veddy British actor interacting with Texans... there was a lot about the hot Texan summer weather. It was an intricate mystery, and Robson Green, as always, is a wonderful actor.

Re: What are you watching?

Hi Shawna,

 

I love Clint Eastwood and thought about renting Grand Torino.  I just thought it would end like most movies like it and left it alone.  I'm glad to hear something positive about it though.  No one really spoke about the movie.

Re: What are you watching?

My husband and I saw The Informant this past weekend with Matt Damon.  It was a prettty good movie and the Matt Damon character was "mental" to say the least.  I think you can really enjoy this movie if you were in on the "inside" joke.  My husband knew a lot about the characters in the movie and he enjoyed it much more than I did.

 

What I have really gotten into is "Lost" season one.  :smileysurprised:)

 

 

Lost - Season 1 

 

Working on season two to try and catch up.

Re: What are you watching?

Torchwood - Children of Earth  

 

I've enjoyed all three seasons of Torchwood, but I certainly understand what my friends meant when they said "Children of Earth" was when the show finally got good. They've finally told a story that lives up to Torchwood's potential as "Doctor Who for adults." Really gripping, but they still manage to keep the sense of cheeky fun that made the first two seasons so enjoyable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deadwood - The Complete First Season  

Deadwood - The Complete Second Season  

Deadwood - Season 3  

 

I saw the first two seasons of Deadwood a few years ago, but never got to see the final season; sadly I'm still in a waiting list for it at the library. But the first two seasons were as great as I remembered... so raw, so brilliantly murky in its morality, with incredibly written and performed dialogue. David Milch makes poetry out of profanity, and Ian McShane is the right man to deliver it. His Al Swearengen is a tour de force and worth the cost of the DVDs alone.

I remember this book.  Awesome.  It's been a long time.  I like a lot of things to do with my home town.  I am originally from New York.

Re: What are you watching?

I started watching the first season of Fringe.

 

Fringe - Season 1 

 

It reminds me of the X-Files which was one of my favorites.  I heard so much about it and am trying it out.

Re: What are you watching?

A friend got me hooked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I'm disappointed that I passed on this the first time around -- it's really a fantastic show. Great characters, great writing, and of course that constant undercurrent of wry, self-aware Whedonesque humor. Right now I'm halfway through Season 4.

Hi TiggerBear,

 

I never heard of this show called Wallander.  Is it any good?  What is the premise of the story?
