    The Bounty:

    Great cast: Gibson, Hopkins, DDL, Olivier, Neeson. The movie did get better as it proceeded, I had my doubts at first. While not an amazing movie, it was pretty darn good. Apparently, it's also the most accurate portrayal of the actual mutiny on the Bounty.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

        I loved the first half of Casino Royale with Craig's sociopath Bond. That's what those guys are in real life, and it made a jarring change. Bond should be older -- he is, after all, The Most Interesting Man in the World. I can't think of a current actor who screams Bond to me. Damian Lewis could be a deeply strange -- he was amazing on Wolf Hall; I could see him as a Bond villain.

            A very odd movie, about 2 women who hide out in a seashore town, due to the secret they keep. Wasn't exactly sure I was watching what I thought I was watching, but the movie did come together nicely by the end. Of course, it was a predictable ending, no twists or turns, but no biggie, really. Decent watch.
            I watched that a few months back and would agree with the assessment. The girl is played by Saoirse Ronan, who looks like she's going to break out have a good career. I watched the movie because she was in it, after seeing her in another movie called Hanna, playing a girl raised by her father to be the perfect assassin - a fairly straight forward movie but she played her part very well.

              Heard about Hanna...might have to check that out on a lazy afternoon. Agreed on her having a chance to hit it big. The brunette, Gemma something...what a smokeshow.

                Hanna was a great movie, and that actress was terrific.

                  Tara Lynne Barr (God Bless America; great movie) has a shot, too, IMO. Reminded me of Portman in Leon: The Professional.

                    Rocky IV on IONTV. Awesome. One of the greatest bad movies ever.

                            I really enjoyed Hanna. Still watch it whenever it is on.

                                Page Eight. 'Spy' story in which a long-standing MI5 agent (Bill Nighy) discovers the PM had information that could save lives from terrorists but held onto for political reasons. If you're a fan of Le Carre books this is the film they should have become. Smart, completely lacking in violence and yet always managing to convey a subtle backdrop of foreboding doom, I'm really glad I accidentally stumbled upon this tonight.
