I also watched a movie called "Death at a funeral", which had some amusing elements but generally sucked. Alan Tudyk was great, however.

Watching this guy Jeff Dunham on youtube. Do a search on him and you're guaranteed some laughs. Achmed rocks.

I saw something like that for real... guy falls in the hole and the casket falls on top of him... now there's a weird way to go.

Saw the golden compass, very enjoyable. Interesting setting with a mix of fantasy and sci fi though some scenes are easy to predict. That bear reminded me of the whitebear riders in tote(:D) and okku from motb. Seriously voice and character was very similar though it wasn't as massive :) Nice cast, Kidman still looks amazing.
I, for one, am dying to find out what colour they paint Michael's toenails.

From what I read the other day, the movie isn't as anti-religious as the book it is based on. Haven't read the book nor seen the movie myself though, but I guess it would be harder to be successful with an anti-religious movie than a book. A book doesn't cost as much to make and can pick and choose an audience, as it were, whilst a full blown and costly pew pew/magic and fairies and flashy stuff movie would need a more general popularity to be considered a success.

Of course, anyone feeling an urge to start one of those religious topic flamefests would be wise to reconsider. I'm just saying, in a purely precautionary way.

Not really though there is an order that orders people around and calling some things heresy :) I don't see how this could be disturbing to some people unless they take it as an offense against organized religion.

I'm just saying - there have been probably hundreds of movies over the years that could be probably labeled "pro-Christian" but as soon as one comes out that is allegedly "pro-atheist" or "anti-christian", out come the picketers. :disagree:

This is news? I tend to ignore the screaming of these conservatives. It's not like they're using valid arguments anyway.

IMO, anyone that feels the need to protest against a book that's for the most part, FANTASY, needs to be dragged out into the street and shot.

Got this 2-disc edition DVD of "Lord of War" for Christmas. I was just about to see it. I've seen it before, and I liked it, but here's the thing. There were lots of trailers and commercials before the feature started. I don't buy DVDs with that sh!t on, so I'm returning this one...

That seems to be happening more and more with dvds lately, much to my dismay.

I like trailers, but I also like to be able to skip straight to the menu as well, if you can't that's when I get annoyed
