Is he? I really had no idea. Or maybe he means that Clive Owen's american accent makes him sound like Christian Bale.

Watched three movies today:

Walk the Line - I really liked this one. I didn't have much of a relation to Johnny Cash beforehand, so most of the things in the movie came as total surprises to me. Both Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon were great.

Underworld Evolution - Crap. That's all I'm going to say. The movie isn't worth wasting more words than that on. Though Kate Beckinsale in tight, black leather/PVC = good thing.

Capote - I really liked this one too. Just as with Walk the Line I wasn't very famililar with Truman Capote beforehand. It was a bit slow at times, but in all a good watch. And I'm really interested in reading In Cold Blood now.

I'm surprised some of you didn't know Christian Bale was English.  You guys never saw Empire of the Sun I guess.  Looked up his IMDB info and it says he was born in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK.  

Anyways, I bought Cinderella and Mulan on DVD.  I'm slowly upgrading some of my movies from VHS.  I recently had a hankering to watch Mulan after playing KHII.  I forgot how funny the movie was and how funny Eddie Murphy was.  I find that now days I only find him humorous when he is doing voice work for movies.  It's a shame.  

Also I saw Antonio Bandaras when I was out shopping today.  Complete shocker to me how short he was.

I watched Clive Barker's 'NightBreed' today. I haven't seen this movie in YEARS and it was pretty corny but cool regardless.  I don't rember that movie being set in Alberta though....

That means he's Welsh, not English! Ha!

Sorry, had to be a dick and try and save face :P

I watched Saving Private Ryan for the first time in a while. I did not realise Nathan Fillion was in it.

Hell, I had no idea Christian was an English Welshian either! Every movie I've ever seen him in he's sounded american. American Psycho = Gold.

Unforgiven - Another "classic" movie that I didn't like as much as I expected to. The premise simply didn't work for me.  Why would he risk everything for some cut up whore he doesn't even know? This was in my head the whole movie. It still worked as a character study, which I imagine was the whole point.

Nan brought home some low budget horror movie called "The Damned".  It was so awful, that it was almost enjoyable. I found myself laughing quite a bit. Tonight, we feed!

Watched Kingdom of Heaven on the telly recently. It was an alright movie...character development felt stunted and I couldn't really concentrate on any of the characters except for Balian because...

Code:
...everyone else kept on dying or they were too boring. Iron's did well though.


Overall, an alright movie. Could have been so much better.

And hey, I didn't know Christian Bale was British (Welsh, whatever) until Batman Begins was out. My brother kept going on about how a lot of the main characters were European. :P

Just watched Hostel. BIG disappointment. Not scary, not suspenseful, not well acted or directed. I was told otherwise to all of those. The whole thing seemed like it just wanted to be a gross-out flick, but it didn't even do that well.

Waste of money.

It didn't help that the first 30 minutes of Hostel was basically softcore porn either. It managed to gross me out though, and I was kinda rooting for

Jay Hernandez to escape and get revenge
which was kinda fun.

The last kill was fun, I'll say that. The only other part I really enjoyed was when

Code:
Jay runs over those two girls and the guy that told them about the Hostel in the first place... especially when the brown-haired one gets hit the second time.


But yeah, there was more emphasis on bare breasts than suspense... which, depending on your view, tends to be pretty detrimental in a horror film.

He was?! I only saw it once ages ago, and that was before I knew who he was - before Firefly and, of course, Season 7 of Buffy. Let me guess, was he an unimportant character?

Anyway, as for Christian Bale being British (that covers Wales), the only reason I know is a) I've seen him in things where he sounded authentically British (a newish film of A Midsummer Night's Dream I was made to watch at school, and some tv adaptation of a John le Carre book from about 20 years ago - i watched the video a few years back) and b) it was mentioned in  some article about Batman Begins.

And there were about 5 European actors in Batman Begins:
Liam Neeson was that guy who
Code:
as it turns out was the leader of the League of Shadows

Tom...something... was Falconi
That Guy From 28 Days Later was Scarecrow
And of course, Christian Bale and Michael Caine

Anyway, i saw Children of Men the other day. I think it's one of the best films I've seen this year, although its rather depressing - not only the fact its set in 21st century dystopia (end of the human race, that kinda thing), but also the fact that
Code:
almost everybody dies.
Clive Owen was good in this film, i think because he didnt have the same kind of part he did in King Arthur - i.e. not the hero, but rather the ordinary guy who has to stand in for him. Everyone else was good, too. It is definitely worth seeing, but i think it won't be out anywhere other than England for a while. I could be wrong, but I haven't heard otherwise.

I went out and saw The Illusionist. I must say that I really liked it. Edward Norton rocks, what can I say?

Currently almost done with The Day the Earth Stood Still. I'm watching it with the Sci-Fi club at my school and we'll probably have it done by friday. It's pretty damn good, especially considering how old it is.

You could say he's one of the most talented actors in Hollywood who's under the age of 40....cept for maybe Christian Bale or Phillip Seymore Hoffman, but he's only got a year left.

At anyrate...I'm planning on seeing that this weekend. I am stoked.
