Given that Ghostbusters is being shown on Fiver and I'm sitting through it in growing horror. I loved this film once. Am I being overly cynical?
Who you gonna call?

1. In London they are currently trying to cast the role of Lizbeth Salander in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
2. Emma Watson suddenly releases this picture of her "new look" to the media.
3. All of the stories about it somehow work in that she's finished shooting the last Harry Potter movie and is now out of her exclusive contract.
Is it over? I don't want it to be over.On the way to the car:
Me: What was the best bit Miss Holly?She was genuinely upset that there wasn't more to see. Wrath of Khan with her soon then (we've got two copies of the DVD after all).
amazing_holly: All of it.
I thought it was arse. All the good bits are in the trailers,
Do not go to see Hot Fuzzand
funny at times but not funny enough to make up for The Stupid, nor for the awful plotmay have given the impression that this movie was a waste of celluloid unworthy of consideration. In fact, the only comments made that, on reflection, appears to be true, was
some great set peice sequences and damn fine actingand
a drunken night in front of the DVD might be worth itbecause that's what we did last night, and I loved it, laughed all the way through it. The first-person-shooter pastiche, the cop/buddy movie pisstakes and the overall quality of the cast really did make for a nice end to a great day.
( Scorecard )I suspect both draich_goch and baseballchica02 would've got more if they'd got in before I did the first point scoring. Jennie suggests next time I do it as a poll with text boxes, which might work well.

it's mysogonistic boy's own adventure bollocks, so is refusing, which is fair. Given that exactly the same can be said for Bond and she's a huge fan I don't really get it, and that it's boy's own adventure bollocks is surely the entire point? Anyway, aaronace gives us a nice fan-mix of the theme tune with clips from all the films. I liked it anyway. This one's a bit late, but meh. Some random bloke's guide to a succesful relationship and not being that ex. Think I mostly agree, opinions? Last up, how to make money in an era where copies can be made for free.
What this film is, is a series of 'set pieces' taken from the book - the fight scenes, the escape scenes, the meeting scenes - all stuck together with very little in the form of narrative 'glue'. As you'd imagine they are beautifully rendered, with some genuinely well-advised use of CGI, and the acting is first class. But the emotional element...was almost completely absent.I'll now be putting the trilogy back on the pile, and if they do make films two and three, I'll likely go see, but not because I expect it to be any good. But just to, y'know, take in the scenery. Especially the Eva Miles shaped bits. As for protestations that the boycott worked? Bollox, it's failed at the box office because it's crap, not because the Catholic League decided to not like it.
During filmingGo read.
Emma Watson: *reading the script* Do I FINALLY get a potentially funny line?!
Rupert Grint: Are you sure you can handle it? Can you handle the responsibility that comes with it? You don't want to let me do it?
Emma Watson: Oh RUPERTALD. I can of COURSE do this line expertly for I am EMMA WATSON and I am HERMIONE!
Rupert Grint: *shuffles off back to his ice cream van*
Back to the film -
Hermione: Allow me to introduce you to this female homosapien, Loony Lun- I mean, Luna Lovegood!
Tumbleweed: *blows past*
Audience: Yeah that wasn't funny in the slightest.
Hermione: *turns away and looks embarrassed*
Everyone else in the world: *is embarrassed for her*
Luna: *says ANYTHING and saves the scene entirely*
We're not going to die, y'know why? Because we're so very pretty...Which, y'know, is mostly true. So, via Amazon (UK, don't have the US search installed) the series is £15, the film is only £5.
