    I doubt he'd be replaced - I agree that he was the show!

    Yay, shiny new thread!

    Johnny English with Rowan Atkinson and The Pink Panther with Steve Martin are hilarious films.
    I heard (word of mouth) that they're planning a Johnny English sequel. :holmes:

    Have you seen The Pink Panther 2? I thought it was rubbish; Aishwarya Rai cannot act very well.

    I'd like to see Charlie Sheen act again a big budget movie. Preferably a bio-pic with him playing himself
    Sounds basically like Two and a Half Men - The Movie! :holmes:

    EDIT: Johnny English 2 on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1634122/

    I could rep you this time :woo: and :dance: for a second thread


    on a different note, I saw Black Swan yesterday! It was amazing!

    and I had a great discussion about the symbolism reflecting the black swan and the white swan throughout the movie. Plus we had a few thoughts on what psychological disorder she might have, if it is some kind of selfharm or if it was some kind of OCD, if she was paranoid or had a multiple personality disorder... so do we know what she had? what do you people think, did she die in the end?


    I know you might already have had this discussion, but it only premiered here in Sweden last week on the 11th :sigh:

    I would lean closer to OCD than self harm, primarily because she seems almost unconsciously to harm herself (though this isn't usually an explicit symptom of OCD). I suppose it may be the desire for self-harm on an unconscious (or sub-conscious) level, possibly because of how hard she seems to push herself (a couple of elements of a type-A personality, though she isn't at all aggressive or extroverted). I think it's an important indicator of how co-morbid most disorders are: it isn't a textbook depiction of any disorder (that I know of). And I do think that she dies in the end, although I'm not sure that's of much significance.

    oops thanks for reminding me to spoiler, didn't think about it

    yeah that's what I thought too, but it didn't seem like she had received any medical treatment or a therapist for that matter since her mother was always there to check up on her and acted as her "therapist" I suppose..
    but maybe the aggressiveness was the fact that she was harming herself, plus she did hurt her mother when shutting the door and then when she wanted to leave she crushed her hand again..
    Yes that's true, I don't know of any myself so yeah, even the display of the disorder is different.
    I think it was important for her in the sense that she was striving for perfection, if she would have continued to live and performing the black swan she probably wouldn't have been able to do it exactly as the previous time when she "became" the black swan. She would've always thought that that was it, nothing could get better than that. So I think she either died or was perhaps institutionalized :dontknow:

    ^ On that topic, I've seen most of 'The Birds', quite good

    I haven't seen the original Pyscho though.. I heard there's a remake floating about, I also hear it's pretty bad
