I almost rented that tonight on On Demand but wasn't sure. Thanks for the good review, I'll probably check it out tomorrow night!KMInfinity wrote:Saw I Am Number Four last nite OnDemand. I liked it a lot. I think it's much better than the reviews suggest. Lots of wit and humor (a la Buffy, thanks to Marti Noxon), a nice scifi plot, and some excellent action sequences.
It never hurts to have a cute dog, imo.
And Timothy Olyphant in the Obi-wan mentor role sealed the deal.
KMI, thanks for the review. I think we will catch it On Demand too.Cheryl wrote:We finally saw the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie today. Love me some Captain Jack. But I found myself missing Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley's characters and their sweet little romance. Penelope Cruz wasn't bad. Usually she annoys me to no end for some reason but she was tolerable in this. Johnny Depp is ageless. I think he really DID find the Fountain of Youth.....in real life!
Saw this on Starz last night. Very very good. Lots in common (almost an homage?) with The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.tgir wrote:Just saw "An Education" on netflix, with Carey Mulligan, and small parts for Emma Thompson, Alfred Molina and Olivia Williams and Ellie Kendrick (recently on the recent revival of Upstairs/Downstairs).
Recommended for those of us with daughters and those of us who once were girls.
Very bright and promising only daughter of a 1962 suburban London family whose father is ambitious for her to go to Oxford---as well she should do. By chance she meets an older man who seduces the entire family and nearly costs Jenny her entire future. Could have been much more sordid, but it wasn't really. Quite a cautionary tale about how and why we sometimes allow others to lead us away from what we know is right and how that gives us--and other people--permission to do what we know is wrong. It all comes out in the end, but Jenny does indeed get an education.
