Narnia is already out with another movie? I might go check it out, even though Caspian was very bad. Those movies are something of a guilty pleasure. I'm a sucker for the scenery.

Very true. Most of them aren't well written either because of how overused most of those words and phrases have become. I feel like Ebert has gone a bit soft lately though, but in his prime he was good. Didn't go out to tear down movies in order to make a name for himself, reviewed them with honesty and understood the joy of watching a good flick.

I read the books and watched the British mini-series (anyone who was a kid in the early 90's in Canada saw these on YTV) and the next two Narnia stories are the best. Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Silver Chair. Prince Caspain was probably the weakest so I'm happy they decided to continue the series. I hope they do these well.

Rififi - 8/10

French heist film which inspired many of the ones that followed. Four guys cook up a plan to rob a diamond shop. Many memorable sequences, the most of which being the iconic/long heist scene with no dialogue. It's meticulous, tense and you'll never forget the movie because of it. Wasn't a big fan of how the story progressed afterwards though, felt like it got a bit too preachy (done well enough that you can ignore it though). Overall a great crime flick, you'll enjoy it if you like crime/heist movies mixed with a noir atmosphere.

I watched the Trotski a week ago per Qwyij's list and I was smitten with laughter. Best comedy since In the Loop. Absolutely loved it.

Glad you liked it. It might only "work" on people who know the background history of everything and catch some of the historical jokes "Ah, you must be the Ceausescus".

I'm not going to lie and say I got all the references. That one I didn't know.

His delivery and overall demeanor was the funniest aspect of the film. I was howling about 5 minutes into it and didn't stop until the credits.
