    Friggen excellent. Its mostly a well orchestrated montage of race film footage, but with enough focus on the man and his family to really make it special. Observation: Eddy and Axel both look like their mothers.

    1776 - 6/10. I love musicals, but except for a few songs, this would have been better off as a straight film. (I understand it works better on the stage.)

    I would've given Resident Evil 6 out of 100. I have no desire to see the next one. My fiancee and I saw it last night just because it required no thinking, and we were right.

    Yes, it does - in some ways. Film makes everyone appear overlarge, and in a stage production you get more of a feel of ordinary people doing extraordinary things, which IMO is appropriate for this one. Plus there's some different pacing.

    Nevertheless, I give the film 8/10. I'll watch it whenever it comes on. And I'm surprised that you don't rate the music more highly. With the exception of 'Momma Look Sharp' - a real downer - and the one where all the delegates depart in their carriages, nearly every number is enjoyable if not memorable.

    Season 1 of HBO's True Blood. Excellent. I'm looking at Season 2 via netflix since the regional chain's copy of season #1 was in bad shape.

    Also watched Saw IV tonight. Not bad for a sequel of a sequel of...

    The runaways: 8
    Little Miss Sunshine: 8.5

    As far as I'm concerned, there is no such thing as TOO LATE to see a movie. I.e. The Blues brothers... who says you have to see a movie between its release and the Oscars? It's not like they evaporate.

    That's a movie that gets better with every viewing, at least for me.

    It was great. Surprisingly I've never seen it in its entirety before.

    Oh. Gotta get that. Next time in Border's I'll order it.
    Both Merckx's have been favorite pros to root for. If I were to have had a son, we'd name him Axel at my insistence. The video has footage of both Merckx's. ?. Axel often rides in California during the winter season. He lives part time, in Canada with his Canadian wife, seems I recall reading. Attend the LA bike Expo and you just might meet Axel. He's often there.

    Two nights ago we saw "Social Network." I'd rate it an 8.5.. Pretty good. Gets a little geeky at time and the main character is a jerk.. But, goes on to show how masterful is the director , Kevin Spacey who knows how to make the audience maintain interest in a geeky, arrogantly tempered lead character for two hours.

    My kids saw Jaws I and II recently and really wanted to see III (through OnDemand). I told them it was really cheesy, but they insisted. So we saw Jaws III the other night. Their verdict - really cheesy 2/10 (2 for a young Lea Thompson)

    Don't think they'll be pushing to see Jaws IV. Thank God

    If you're into Shakespeare, I recently watched - again - Olivier's Hamlet. A little truncated, but overall: Amazing! 9.5/10. The ghost scenes give me chills just thinking about them. God bless TMC. (I do wish he'd used his wife for Ophelia. I could have bought Vivien Leigh as a nubile wench. I mean, what is the willing suspension of disbelief for, for goo'ness sake!?)

    I haven't seen his Henry V. Thanks for the pointer; I'll look for it.
