    Three nights in a row I tried watching a movie with my wife and she falls asleep half way through. I feel bad for finishing it without her so I shut it off. Should I just keep going or what?
    In my experience, thats only allowed if YOU fall asleep.

    Is the movie not her thing or is she merely tired? It should be possible to find a spot where you both get to ride it out. Try a different time of day. Like when the baby takes a nap, then have 1-2 breaks to check on her/him.

    I wouldn't persevere if the movie in question is oh I dunno, Freddy got Fingered.

    Yes it was. Which is quite sad.
    Maybe one day they'll get it right. I happen to like all of the adaptations and I love and own the book.

    And as he lay there
    Playing games with his pain
    He felt his choice of jobs
    Was such a mistake
    He could have been a doctor
    In a soft easy chair
    Instead he chose three stars
    A territorial affair

    I laughed when I read his nap comment as well

    Edit: not a mocking laugh, Morris, a my-youngest-is-six-and-I'm-STILL-tired kind of tired chuckle.

    Since this forum's been talking about Zodiac a lot lately, I figured I'd throw my two cents in on it by sharing my review:




    There's more than one way to lose your

    life to a killer.

    Honestly I think the Zodiac, whoever they are, is dead. Good review though.

    Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula by Francis Ford Coppola is just...delicious.

    Every frame is gorgeous. Oldman's performance cannot be overstated...it makes up for any shortcomings *cough*KeanuandWinona*cough* and is just so sublime. Good God he is stunning.

    This may have jumped into my top 10-20 of all time.

    An incredible piece of work.

    The behind the scenes on the vfx on the train scene are incredible. Achieved all in camera.

    Yeah the movie is a technical marvel. Apparently the blue flame circles are the only things they didn't achieve in camera.

    Freaking awesome.

    I liked Jessie Buckley in I'm Thinking of Ending Things, so today I watched Wild Rose. Another good performance, but I didn't care for the movie.

    I love the race against the sunset at the end of FFC's BS's D. It's such a marvelous piece of work set against that incredible score.

    Kenneth Branagh's Mary Shelley's Frankenstein by Kenneth Branagh is...missing everything that made Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula by Francis Ford Coppola so special.

    Pedestrian direction, completely devoid of the rich romance that elevated Coppola's film into the stratosphere. Coppola's film indulges in phantasmagorical excess to create something operatic and mythic, whereas Branagh's film is merely self indulgent.

    If ever there was a film that could encapsulate the meaning of the term "vanity project", it is this one.

    Branagh wrongly chooses to focus on himself, when the monster is obviously the most interesting character in the film. Once the monster has been created (and hot damn it takes its time getting to this point) the focus still remains on the Doctor and his bland love affair with his step sister.

    Branagh is a fine actor but I have never seen evidence that he is anything more than barely passable as a director. Either he doesn't have the eye to frame and capture lush imagery the way this film needed if it was ever going to stand up next to FFC's BS's D by FFC, or he just doesn't care because THIS MOVIE IS ABOUT MEEEEEEEEE! LOOK! I GOT ABS!! LOOK AT THEM!!!

    Very disappointing.

    I'm delighted by how much I liked Late Spring considering my somewhat tepid response to Tokyo Story. I just found it a lot more emotionally stirring, but I owe TS a rewatch.
