Daniel’s instant movie reviews

We’ve started a mini-DVD swapping scheme at work, so this weekend I watched two movies I missed in the cinemas…

– great movie. Best bit was seeing "Clavdivs" – Derek Jacobi in it! That and looking at Russ
in the Colosseum and thinking… Hey, I’ve been there!

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
– yeah, pretty good. Undoubtedly spectacular, but I found it difficult to get as "in" to it as with Gladiator. No doubt to compare the two movies is unfair, but inevitable for me I’m afraid. Also in the middle of the fight sequence where the chick is dressed as a boy, I had this strange flashback to Monkey… Hmmmm!
