Chinatown is on five at 11.10 if Jack Nicholson is any consolation?

What, Jack instead of Alan? Don't be daft

spacedonkey Sat 18-Dec-04 17:31:13

Juniper - Die hard is brilliant. Not usually into action films but this is not to be missed imo.

Anyone seen Mr Ripley, is it worth a watch?

spacedonkey Sat 18-Dec-04 18:11:56

does that mean you can't watch it?

in what way? Can you tell me a bit of the plot, like to know these things b4 hand

spacedonkey Sat 18-Dec-04 18:16:21

Director Anthony Minghella followed his award-winning The English Patient with this absorbing thriller, based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith. Matt Damon plays the eponymous Ripley, a young opportunist who seeks out Dickie Greenleaf (Oscar-nominated Jude Law), an American playboy living it up in Europe. Ripley becomes friends with Dickie, but gradually comes to covet the carefree lifestyle he shares with his glamorous girlfriend (Gwyneth Paltrow). Minghella's classy direction and the superior cast make this never less than compelling.
