Yes, I do. :)

By the way, I think Drive had a good scene that sort of suggested the presence of another driver of Ryan Gosling's skill. It was the second chase scene, after the botched pawn shop robbery. Of course, Ryan got the best of his pursuer, but it took awhile to shake him. Hearing the director mentioning the possibility of giving Driver a Moriarty makes me picture many more scenes like that in the sequel. But the first movie only had a couple of chase scenes, and most of the focus was on the characters, so a sequel will have to have another good character story in addition to upping the action.

The Woman In Black - saw it with a friend last night. Okay acting and all but badly recycled plot.

I saw In Bruges tonight. I found it strangely entertaining.

I assume it's one of those situations like The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Hannibal Rising, in which the film producers made it clear that there was going to be a sequel with or without the original author, so he decided that he might as well write a book for them to base it on.

I can't find much information, however, on whether or not the film sequel will be based on the book sequel. The book sequel's plot summary only mentions in vague terms Driver's past catching up with him, while an interview with the first film's director mentions having two drivers in the film sequel. He mentions giving Driver his own Lex Luthor or Moriarty, a sort of mirror image arch enemy.

Wherever they go with it, I'll be there.

I recently watched Tampopo, which had been recommended to me more than once. Highly entertaining. I didn't quite know what it was about before watching it, which made it even better. I think I literally laughed out loud early on as I was still figuring that part out.

Well, it has it's strongpoints in terms of suspense especially the ending which, I shant give away but, it makes you wonder.. I'm not good at stating whether something is great or bad cause, all things mean different unto others.

I watched "In time" on Sunday. Probably one of the worst movies I've seen in years. Can't believe it's the same guy that directed Gattaca.

I had never heard of The Reeds. I looked it up hoping that it would be a killer plant movie like The Ruins (which is excellent, by the way), but the plot summary on IMDb disappointed me.

I just watched two movies today for Valentine's Day:

The Woman In Black, which my wife and I went to see afternoon. It made me jump a few times. Most significantly is is that this movie was made by Hammer productions, which used to churn out British horror flicks in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. They kept the old Hammer formula, with the story taking place in Victorian England, along with creepy, suspicious locals who ostracize the hero, and refuse to tell him what horror is taking place - - till it's too late!

While I got to watch The Whisperer in Darkness, which my wife had gotten me as a Valentine's gift on DVD. Basically, this was a tale by H.P. Lovecraft put on film. All I can say is, while I love Lovecraft, this, like most movie adaptions of his work, didn't translate well from page to screen. Still, better than most other Lovecraft adaptions out there.
