Leo Says: We finally got this film. I found it to be as good as it was rumoured to be. I think if one actually honestly listens to what is said here it will be very beneficial to their lives. And for those of you who already know this stuff, it just helps re-enforce your knowledge.
You can rent it or order a copy $40.00 + $2.00 shipping and handling all tax's in.
Conversations with God
Stranger Than Fiction
Leo says: I was really looking forwards to seeing this flick, I had very high expectations and figured it would be one of the best films of the year, dispite having Will Ferrell in it. You know what I was not let down, it was simply brilliant. Definitely one of the best scripts of the year, realistic dialogue, great acting, very well directed, cool cinematography and all that. Will Ferrell was actually perfect for the part, no over acting or stretched out jokes, the man looks like he may be able to act like a normal human being-not saying that this part is all that normal but if it were he may have pulled it off. So the jist of it is that this is one of the best films of the year in my books.
Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny
Kate Says: A wonderfully creepy film. Coming from the director of "Fear and Loathing in Las vegas" and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" you can expect something bizzarre, which is exactly what you get. Somewhat disturbing at times, as it deals with heroin junkies and their daughter, the overall feel to this film is simply strange and eerie but very enjoyable. Jodelle Ferland does a wonderful job as the young and imaginiative Jeliza-Rose; she definately has a promising career ahead of her. This is one to watch, the cinemetography is superb as is the acting. I recommend!
Leo Says: Like Kate says this is an amazing film. Bizzare, original and loads-o-fun. One of my favorite films of the year. Terry Gilliam the director is so very skilled as always.
San ging chaat goo si (New police story)
Jackie chan is back ya'll
Kate Says: Yes, another scary movie starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. While it looks like it may just be "The grudge 3" it is in fact quite different and, in my opinion, much better. For one thing, "The Return" is more of a mystery/thriller than a horror. Secondly, it has a genuinely creepy feel to it, and it is adequately suspenseful. Gellar does a good job as the main character, and while I will admit I went into this movie with low expectations, I thouroughly enjoyed it and would recomend it as a very decent thriller.
Great title eh!

The U.S. vs. John Lennon
Plot outline: A documentary on the life of John Lennon, with a focus on the time in his life when he transformed from a musician into an antiwar activist. (view trailer)
Leo Says: This may not be the most important doc of the year, but it is one of the nicest to watch. With a very strong message about peace it is simply lovly. I was afraid that it would focus on the beatles a lot but was very happy to see that it is very much about Lennon and his campaign for peace, I now have great respect for the man.
The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream
Plot outline: Since World War II North Americans have invested much of their newfound wealth in suburbia. It has promised a sense of space... more
Leo Says: This is one of 3 films this year that I felt had somthing realy important to say. An Inconvenient Truth & Why We Fight were the other two. I highly recomend then.
