I tried watching that once (probably twice actually) but I got nowhere with it. I really wanted to like it, but I just couldn't get into it :(
Shame, I usually love foreign films as a lot of the time they're better than anything the UK or America can cough up.

It's certainly a marmite kinda film. The sequel Daywatch is even stranger

One day I might try again, but not for a while.. As far as foreign vampire movies go, Let The Right One In seems to be my stopping point, probably because I liked it so much that I don't want anything to beat it :lol:

Righteous Kill: Predictable 'thriller'. You'd expect more from 2 class acts such as DeNiro and Pacino.

Watched it recently. It looked like Al knew it was beneath him, and was doing the swivel eyed, over acting thing, but De Niro was trying to make a decent fist of it but ended up being little better than 50 Cent.

Just watched Zac and Miri Make A Porno - meh.
She wanted nothing...and I delivered

That's the one. I like how it's quite awkward but funny. And it's got some of that moody shit, too.

Watching The Talented Mr Ripley. I remember it being really good but it's been years since I've seen any of it.

i thought both filsm were brilliant. the story gets hard to follow if you miss anything as its a very attention needing film. i think it makes Twilight look like a 14 year old girls wet dream while Night Watch/Day Watch are the brooding 30-somethings who want a good fight with plenty of sfx. i cant wait for the third film Twilight Watch (no connection to Twilight) based on the second Nightwatch book.

although if you watch Daywatch, you cant deny the scene with the car driving on the side of the building is pretty awesome.

'edit' just found out there might be a fourth film titled Last Watch. awesome

I witnessed Britney Spears' despairingly woeful attempts at acting when she appeared in How I Met Your Mother.
I know nothing good can come of watching Crossroads.

That film was so badly that it physically fucking hurt me.

It's like they went "Hey, lets take the names from Dragonball and then basically change everything fucking else". Plus it was so rushed you didn't really understand the story, or liked any of the characters. New viewers didn't have a fucking clue what was going on, and Dragonball fans just plain fucking hated it.
