Old movie on DVD, but Pursuit of Happyness was a great movie...can't believe I waited this long to see it. Will Smith and his son (real life, Jayden? I think) were amazing, and the Cameo at the end with Chris Gardner was a great touch. ;-D

8/10


Never saw the movie, but I did read the book. Awesome read IMO. Definitely would recommend reading the book. ;-D

i thought the previews looked so awful i had no desire to see it...part of it could be that i think Will Smith's schtick wore off towards the end of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's run

I actually thought the previews looked really good, so I was excited to see it and then sorely disappointed.

Has anyone seen Body of Lies yet? It's been out for about 2 weeks but I just haven't got round to seeing it but I reckon I will because of the cast and the fact that Ridley Scott is the director just adds to the appeal of the film. I mean, I enjoyed American Gangster and everyone likes Gladiator so i just have a gut feeling this will be a good film. Enough of me gabbling on, has anyone actually seen it? :-b

I saw it, it wasn't bad but nothing special. I'd give it a 7/10.

Some of the story twists were interesting but the characters seemed to never be surprised about anything IIRC

Agreed. Movie was quite boring.

Also watched Wanted. Good effects but didn't care for some of the plot - guess that's what happens when you take something from a comic book.

So by that logic, you didn't like The Dark Knight then, right?
