    Wow, they're incomparable and Crowe can't even act, what were they thinking when they decided to cast him?

    I agree, Amanda Seyfried and Eddie Redmayne were bland, I almost fell asleep. I haven't read the books (despite my mum's nagging) but the musical is in its final days in the theatre here so I may entertain the idea of watching it. Quite frankly, I've been turned off the whole thing thanks to the awful film.

    Aside from the technical side, did you like the plot?

    It's a quintessential man movie.

    I would call it an okay movie. A B-class movie that you watch it because you had nothing to watch. Yes yes yes the acting was good. What i felt it lacked was length and i think that's the first i felt it. They could have made the scene where the kidnappers are caught longer by adding some detective work. And the way yhe husband gets caught is too soon and too sad. Yes yes that was where they could have lengthen it, catching the husband, finding evidence of his involvement.

    Did you enjoy the tv series? It was much better and was shockingly entertaining. Yes a lot of weight was put behind the assasin's character but even if he was made mediocre the show still would have been entertaining. The detective work the lead character does is classic detective work. No Sherlocks there.

    I liked the God Father 1 and esp 2. I don't see any females complaining about it. I am still kinda concerned whether i like it mainly because it appeals to the i-want-to-be-a-crime-boss-who-is-above-the-law part of tbe male brain.

    The second was better tha the first.

    Complaints ladies?

    I think they're the best "anti-hero" films to date, better than even Taxi Driver. I have no idea how many times I've seen the club scene in which Michael first realises that it was Fredo that betrayed him, I kept rewinding and re-watching it, and it still hasn't lost its impact on me.

    I haven't seen part 3 and I have no desire to.
