Hi Bob! I've just bought it and another Sting Bluray with your code... the amazon ratings are quite interesting It's quite? rare for a movie to have a U-shape rating? So many people gave it 5 stars, but just as many absolutely hated it and gave it 1-star! Of course, that means the average is 3-stars...

FANTASTIC PICTURES!! Wow, I'm so jealous. Interesting that the Aqua walking took place on Tuesday in the move! :) I was indeed quite fortunate to have caught the aqua walking. It only happens once every week for around half an hour. I didn't know what was happening until the trainer started doing h...

I think the comment that Charlotte made about EW wasn't just a reaction of what Kelly said, but a reaction that started when Kelly first met them.. 'John?!!' The way she looks at her up and down is so funny and then she finds John flirting with her and so get a bit pissed off I think. So the 'proble...

I just noticed that Amazon has its 'look inside!' feature enabled for this book; didn't realise it when it was first released. Looks like there's a lot of background info that's researched by the author... will get it soon!

I'm of the opinion that the flashback treatment may lessen the impact of the movie somewhat. I know everyone may have been 'punched in the stomach' moment at different points in the movie, probably the last parts of it. My moment was the fading out of Bob's taxi ride to the airport and when the cred...

Ok good ideas! I just paid online, it costs USD 478 a night including taxes. I wrote on the online order form that I'm staying there because of LiT. Maybe the concierge has something 'extra' to give me haha... The hotel used to have a LiT package but not now... I'll also try to buy the owl if it's r...

Going to Tokyo next month, may be staying at the Park Hyatt

So I'm still thinking about whether to pay the USD 500+ a night admission charge. Will probably be watching LiT in the room haha...

I'll be reading related posts in the forum... does anyone want anything/ pictures of xyz, or have ideas what I should check out at the hotel?

I felt punched in the stomach when the movie ended, then was became a zombie for the next 3 days. Then I watched it again. In total, I watched it 5 times for the next few weeks LOL

I just watched this, Scarlett's great! She just has that ability to bring it up a notch even though her role was not really the main thing... and the rest of the cast is wonderful too...

7.1 stars on IMDB, and 83% at rotten tomatoes...just about right!
