Cygnet,

I'm curious as to what you didn't like about Cars...the most recent trailer that is out does not look very good, is it 90 minutes of redneck jokes?

Maybe this year I'll keep up with this. I see lots of flicks, just forget to come rave or rant on 'em.

Holy crap, I remembered to come back! I rank 'em on a 10* scale initially, and then divide by 2 to put 'em on 5* scale for the masses.

January
Syriana- 3 1/2 * for initial review. I was a bit tired and winked out for about a minute each time. The movie was already fairly confusing enough, but still enjoyed the acting etc. I'm sure a future viewing will bump up this rank.

February
New World- 2 1/2 * - For the first part of the film I was uncomfortable...I'm not sure why. Maybe it was the style of the narration that threw me off. I felt more comfortable about 2/3 of the way in when
Spoiler:
Pocahontas sees England
. I'm not begging for my 2+ hours back, but I'm not sure I'll see it again.
