    I'd say she writes like a bus driver, but I wouldn't want to offend bus drivers, so I won't say that.

    The Lake House was one of the funniest movies I've seen in awhile.

    Flash, thought that looked pretty good. Good enough to plan a gal's night around?

    Absolutely. Popcorn and red wine!! It's like Sex In the City in suburbia ... a little more subdued but way more interesting.

    The Departed. See it. Love it. Walk out of the theater dropping the f-bomb every other word.

    I don't know what's worse, that busdriver is illiterate or that 50 First Dates is her favorite movie...

    OK, gratutious plugs aside...

    I saw Borat the other day and it's funnier than Dane Cook but not as funny as Talladega Nights was, IMO. A little of Borat goes a long way, but then again when he hits one, he hits it out of the park.

    I thought The Deported was a swing and a miss by Scorsese. The first third sounded like it was written by David Mamet, with cracklin' diaglogue, but then it goes downhill. The very last shot in the film is very controversial here in Hollywood -- Leo was asked about it at a press screening a colleague went to and he responded, "It was fine by me," but most observers found it (the last shot) campy.

    I liked The Prestige a lot. Great story, good acting, and it leaves you scratching your head in a positive way when it's all said and done.

    Last King of Scotland is the best movie out right now.

    tigervols, what was controversial about the last shot?

    mostly i agree with your analysis of it. i saw it on saturday and thought: eh. better than a lot of movies. unpredictable but not implausible, which to me is a huge part of what makes a movie good. terrific acting, which helps. but ultimately it just didn't do it for me.

    I would recommend "The Nightmare Before Christmas" re-release in 3-D.
