Elizabeth and the X-men

I think I need to rent the film Elizabeth (and not just because Joseph Fiennes is in it…) I’m working on the CD soundtrack of it, and I love the pictures in the liner notes. Yes, that’s a silly reason to want to see a film, but the costuming looks amazing, Cate Blanchett looks beautiful & strong, and I wanted to see it back when it was in Theatres.

Can’t wait for the X-men……

    tell me about it. i still haven’t seen it either, and i’m a huge fan of cate’s.
    a tidbit: i saw a few of her performances when she was studying at the national institute of dramatic art in, shit, ’92/3?, god i’m getting old. nida has long-standing ties with the uni i went to, so they’d give people in my course free tickets. loved seeing the shows then following their careers, depressing tho that they were the cream of the acting crop, supposedly, and only a small percentage of each year’s graduates would ‘make it’, as they say. she was definitely the stand-out that year. daniel lapaine as well, but he hasn’t gone stratospheric like her.
    well, that was a tangent! 🙂

      tangents are good! (except in math class… I hated math class…)

    Totally Cool Movie – Do Rent Elizabeth

    I have loved everything Cate Blanchett has been in and this movie is no exception. She does a beautiful job of creating Elizabeth from young to matronly (if she could ever be matronly). The photography was well done and the music is beautiful. Joseph Fieinnes is gorgeous eye candy. So what’s stopping you – get out there and rent this jewel?
