Since we are on the topic of old-time sailor movies, who here besides me has seen the Horatio Hornblower series broadcast a few years ago (1998-2003), with "Mr. Fantastic" Ioan Gruffudd in the lead role? That was really great, I thought! I even bought the entire series on DVD, I liked it so much! :-)
Errol Flynn and Basil Rathbone at their best!
I think I had a bootleg copy of that, until the fan failed on one of my arrays and I lost a couple TB of video... :-(
Just finished watching Hot Fuzz... a British action/comedy film from 2007 written by and starring Simon Pegg. It's not great, but the final 20 minutes or so made it worth watching, and the soundtrack really gives your speakers and subwoofer a heavy duty workout.
I liked Hot Fuzz. I missed the first 20 minutes or so, but it was pretty enjoyable.
Most of you have probably already seen it, but Live Free or Die Hard from 2007 is a pretty good shoot'em up for those of you that like heavy non-stop action:

...and there are plenty of computer references made in the movie for anyone here who might happen to be a computer geek! :)
Haven't seen it yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing The Artist now that it has won a number of top awards. It's a silent film, done in black & white, and in the 4:3 aspect ratio. This one didn't appeal to me at all until after I watched a few clips from the movie. Now, I've gotta admit that it looks different and interesting.
On the other hand, there have been a number of "Best Motion Picture of the Year" winners in the past that I ended up not liking at all, but we'll see how it goes with this one. :)
