Well, I've been falling behind so it is time to cram:

Here is what has passed through our rental queue since Curves

  • Barbarella (1968)

    1 star. This movie goes so far past bad it wraps around to good.
    Right up there with Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

  • The Guns of Navarone, 1961

    4 stars. Gregory Peck, Anthony Quinn, David Niven. Covert
    operation to blow up a giant german gun.

  • Johnny English, 2003

    1 star. Rowan Atkinson doing his thing. He is his usual funny
    self but it just wasn't worth it for me.

  • Pushing Tin (1999)

    1 star. Didn't finish watching

  • The French Connection (1971)

    4 stars. Blast from the past. Who knew that Gene Hackman had
    brown hair!?

  • Alias: Season 1: Disc 1 (2001)

    3 stars. Spy stuff. A bit formulaic

  • Gangs of New York: Disc 2 of 2 (2002)

    3 stars. Amy watched all of it, I didn't.

  • Donnie Brasco (1997)

    4 stars. I didn't see all of it but it looked very good.

  • Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)

    4 stars. Lots of violence but creative in parts. fun tribute to
    the super spy / samurai / assasin.

  • Road to Perdition (2002)

    3 stars. Not good but bearable

  • Veronica Guerin (2003)

    5 stars. Powerful 'based on a true story' movie. Cate Blanchett
    rocks, as always.

  • Beyond Borders (2003)

    did we rent this? Not only did I not see it, I didn't even know
    it was in the house...

  • Bridget Jones's Diary (2001)

    1 star. I watched the whole thing. Wanted a refund of my time
    afterwards. Parts were amusing but overall not worth it.

  • Enemy at the Gates (2001)

    4 stars. Jude Law and Ed Harris face off as Russian and German snipers during the WWII
    siege of Stalingrad. Joseph Fiennes too.

  • Morvern Callar (2002)

    4 stars. Scottish gal's boyfriend commits suicide. She submits his
    just written novel to a publisher as her own.

  • Boogie Nights(1997)

    4 stars. Stellar cast and performances.

  • Happiness (1998)

    say what? Another mystery DVD. Maybe Amy will come back and fill
    this in

  • South Park: Season 1: Disc 3 (1997)

    4 stars. I love SP.

  • Holes (2003)

    4 stars. Good kids movie. Follows the book closely

  • Flirting with Disaster (1996)

    4 stars. Good film. Lily Tomlin and Alan Alda make it really good

  • Iris (2001)

    5 stars. Free spirit genius slice of life movie meets
    Alzheimer's / end of life story. Judi Dench, Jim Broadbent, Kate

  • 8 Women (2002)

    1 star. This was so awful it was awful. Depending on your
    tastes it may be so awful that it is good
