I saw "12 Monkeys" again last night.
I think it is a great film even if Brad Pitt goes way overboard too often.

er... I liked As Good As It Gets, I wouldn't say it's the funniest film ever or anything, but I certainly describe it as my favourite chickflic.

About Schmidt is a much better Jack Nicholson film - I loved that final scene

About Schtmittd was rubbish... actually that's not true, with About Schditmdt I could see how the film can be a quality film and appreciated as such so long as you (the viewer) is over fifty three years of age. Overwise it's just a lot of midlife-crisis stuff that is totally tedious and uninteresting to understand.

Err, I enjoyed it. I must be middle aged (bloody hell - that creapt up on me!).

Hell's Angels was ok. Even though the Nicholson character was superfluous.

I liked 'As Good as it Gets' as well. The transformation of the character seems pretty abrupt, to my way of thinking: I didn't get much sense of the length of time over which the action was set.

I saw As Good As It Gets. It was worthwhile. I liked the dog!

Characters were interesting, too.

The best thing was that I actually forgot I was watching Jack Nicholson after a certain point and I thought that was FABULOUS.

He's one of those actors that is ALWAYS Jack Nicholson in every role he plays, so losing him and seeing only the character was really cool. I actually cared if he would change...and since I don't really care for Jack Nicholson, that was amazing.

Jack is always this somewhat slimey, dirty-old-man type guy who's a bit not quite there and dangerous. (That's my POV from what I have seen of him. He seems very base, very selfish, very in touch with his self-indulgence--like the character he starts out as in As Good As It Gets but without being a neat freak.)

I thought his role in the Witches (forgot the name, movie with Cher and two other lady witches and he's the warlock) really captured the way I see him. Slimeball.

If he's not that way in real life, he's really cornered a great character type. Nice to see him break out of it for a bit in As Good As It Gets.

That's how I see him. That's why I was surprised I forgot it was him playing the character and I actually cared if he changed at the end.

Yeah, Jack is always Jack.
For me the Helen Hunt character [Carol Connelly] was the most interesting.

Witches of Eastwick. And he's the Devil, I believe.

decent film. I liked it. I didn't find it that realistic, but it's a movie. What do you expect.
