Yeah, I saw 300 in IMAX. To be honest, I was very disappointed. It was very corny and dull at the same time.
Ricokevin, the tix here are about $9-$10 but for IMAX you have to pay $15. ricokevin wrote: faifai0714 wrote: anybody seen 300? Here Not much story, just action (the "man-ness"). Was entertaining tho. How much do movie tickets cost in the US??? Here in Korea, it's around$7~8 per adult.

Watched Mr Bean's Holiday.

It is a good show if you want a laugh. But of course he is still Mr Bean. You get what I mean. Sometimes it gets a little corny.

In the US tix prices are dependant on where you are. I live in DC and it is second highest cost of living next to NY and Select place in Cali. The prices in DC range from 9-10 during early hours and 12-16 for evening movies. As for Borat I thought it was hysterical. If people find it offensive I guess they are just sensitive. I am the type of person that can laugh at something poking fun at me as long as it is funny.

Do you think Holiday is better than the 1st movie?

u mean Bean's first movie, Mr Bean the movie? He also has a Johnny English.

To me I found I like the first one. This can be very subjective.

I didn't like the first one cus there's too much talking, it seems to me that Bean Holiday has less talking.

I saw Knocked Up with my wife last weekend. I must say it is one of the funniest movies I have seen in years. Some parts I missed what was said cause everyone in the theater was laughing too hard to actually hear anything.

I watched "The Last Samurai" on day before yesterday. Earlier, I had "the Little Buddha" and "Ghandi". I enjoyed them.

"Wall Street" is also a good movie for the business students. I also heard good thing about "Other people's Money".

I am very selective in watching movies that are something special. I avoid movies, like "The Godfather", that have too much violance.

Can anybody pls suggest me some movies that are historical or revolutionary?

Thanx......

I think you'll like the movies they show on the History Channel. Even some of the biographies they show are very good and are probably in line with your interests. My favorite Biography has been Ghengis Khan. He was FEARLESS. When he decided to go to war, it didn't matter to him how far away or how powerful the enemy was. Now I got to read a good book on him too...
