Audition followed by American Psycho. Does that mean if I go "Psycho" on my family over here... I can blame you all for putting me through the movies?  :tease:

My Thoughts:
After watching this one I am really not sure what to say about it. I think I may have been a little to tired when I started this one... as I have kept myself very busy all day today. So I did find it a bit on the confusing side and feel I will need to watch this one again at some point. But with that said I did enjoy what I saw here. It definitely kept my interest through-out the movie.

- Final Destination: The Spirit Within
Is this right...?

I think the Final Destination sequels were all numbered and The Spirit Within is Final Fantasy...?

My pick:
Ichi the Killer


Alternatively, if you don't want to read again so soon:
John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars

In The Bedroom is marvellous. Slow and serious, with a fantastic last act, you should put the effort into watching it, just to day you did.  :thumbup:

Title: Ocean's Eleven
Year: 2001
Director: Steven Soderbergh
Rating: PG-13
Length: 116 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, English: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, French: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Commentary: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo, Commentary: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

Stars:
George Clooney
CeCeLia Birt
Paul L. Nolan
Carol Florence
Lori Galinski
Bernie Mac

Plot:
The plan is set. The rules are clear. If all goes right for Danny Ocean's grifters, the payoff is $150 million. Divided by 11. You do the math.

The skill of Academy Award®-winning* director Steven Soderbergh combines with enough starpower to light up the Las Vegas strip in this classy caper. George Clooney plays Danny, defying the odds in a split-second heist of three Vegas casinos – all owned by a magnate (Andy Garcia) who is dating Danny's ex-wife (Julia Roberts). A fixer (Brad Pitt), a pickpocket (Matt Damon), a blackjack dealer (Bernie Mac), a flimflammer (Carl Reiner) and others in well-defined roles are with Danny. Are you in or out?

My Thoughts:
This is the first time I ever seen this one. While I am not a big fan of George Clooney... He wasn't bad in this one.  Though for some reason Julia Roberts didn't do it much for me here. She just seemed a bit stiff in the role. Not exactly relaxed... so not exactly believable. I also felt pretty much the same thing with Brad Pitt. But he is another one I never been a big fan of either. The movie itself I enjoyed quite a bit despite the problem I had with some of the main cast. It has a good, interesting storyline that easily kept my interest. I enjoyed it enough to look forward to seeing the sequel before too long.

Personally I didn't really like the sequel and as you I enjoyed the first one, take it for what it worth of course...

I didn't like the sequel either, Jimmy. Shocked you liked the first one! The general consensus is that Ocean's Eleven is fantastic, Ocean's 12 is dreadful and Ocean's 13 is somewhat like the first and remembers how to be good. Well, that's the consensus outside of this forum. I seem to remember Eric liking 12 best and a bunch of weirdos agreeing with him!  :tease:

I was too :laugh:
But without Kathy sending it to me this is probably something I won't have watch, since those films aren't my cup of tea usually.
