Well it's not at our nearest theatre, and not in the "coming soon" list, so I assumed it had come and gone

I did find it at the theatre farthest away from us (but it's downtown where you have to pay for parking, so that's out) but I noticed it opened Jan 21st there

"Hot Fuzz" which I loved, an excellent satire on sleepy town life in the area I live, and on stupid action films too. I enjoyed it far more than "Shaun of the Dead" , I thought it was much funnier and more clever. As someone who lives in the Cotswolds it certainly resonated with me in a hilariously accurate way... I do wonder how much non English people will miss of the humour and in-jokes though.

I also saw "True Grit" at the week-end which I thought excellent, beautifully shot, superbly acted , the young Heroin had such a quiet intensity about her which I found quite mesmerising. A wonderful old style Western. I never saw the John Wayne movie as I am allergic to him ( I think he was one of the worst actors I ever saw, on screen presence he may have had but acting certainly was not one his skills, to me he always played himself and was ridiculously wooden and hammy)but I would be surprised if the original was better. I thought the Coen Brothers did a fantastic job and esthetically the film really was stunning, the muted browns palette rendered to great effect.

Its a shame the theater doesn't give you free parking. I know the Regal Theater in downtown Vancouver Wa, gives free parking in one of the city garages.

Robin Hood with Russel Crowe. Not as good as I expected. 3.5 out of 5 points.

I just watched A Child Is Waiting, starring Judy Garland and Burt Lancaster. It's about a school for mentally retarded children. This movie is a forgotten gem. It's on Youtube if you want to check it out on the fly.

The original SNOW WHITE. It's the first time I've ever watched the whole thing from beginning to end. (I'm 40! You'd think I'd have seen it by now.) I have to say that I didn't enjoy the movie very much. Mostly I thought it was boring.

(I AM looking forward to the live-action version they're supposedly developing, however.)
