Is that Sacha Baron Cohen?
I won't watch his films; his new characters such as Borat make me cringe.

Then there are films that play fast and loose with history such as anything involving Mel Gibson and the English.
I'm only about 20 minutes in though so there's still time.
Of course the 6,000 metre long pipe full of water reaching to the earth's core was a tad far-fetched
Just got to the first big scene
Harry Brown, Max Payne, Jet Li's Fearless and the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still.
Does my OTT review now make some sense?
Something like Monsters Ball?
Having read the plot synopsis, I can't imagine a situation where my life would be so empty as to ever need to watch that film for something to do.
, so bad it's good then?
I find that very disturbing - not just the notion that there could be another such disaster, but that some tosser was willing to try and make money from it.
Hello sonny, 1500+ people died in a real disaster and you have the audacity to turn it into some sort of money-spinning "sequel".
I agree that Borat was , to borrow a phrase from Blackadder Goes Forth, "a steaming pile of horse manure".
The actors actually did their best, but with material such as: "You're good, and I'm bad. We're made for each other" - need I say more?
I thought Sin City was an excellent film, I do admit I am part of the target audience and I'm a huge fan of Frank Millers graphic novels. If you're not familar with the source material then it would seem like your average violent money spinner. If Brogan hasn't seen it I would definately recommend it as one of the best films to show off the capabilities of Blu-Ray.
I used to use it as one of the movies for doing just that
After watching the clip of Titanic II that FB posted, I was sorely tempted to walk out of my computer room..!
I loved the imagination that had gone into all the different worlds and peoples and scenarios - the planets were great, the monsters were great, the spaceships were great.
If only they'd taken the same care over the script (I read somewhere that Lucas refused to let anyone else - a team of professional script writers, say - do any of the script writing). He has a special gift of making otherwise talented actors into expressionless clumsy lumps of wood.
