I can't wait to see "Taxi."

To be honest its a while since I've watched Shaolin Soccer so I can't really comment on how intrusive the CG effects are. I try to dig out my copy over the next few days and let you know.

Taxi is great low-brow fun, with some great car chases. They realeased Taxi 3 earlier this year, and now it looks like Luc Besson is taking his series to the US and a version staring Queen Latifah is due to start filming next year.

Oh, I forgot about Lagaan!

Granted, it has pretty much an entire cricket game in there, but if you like Baliwood, it's fab. If you aren't okay with people randomly breaking into song and doing the shoulder-thrust dance, I'd skip it, though.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, because I haven't read the whole post.

By far the best movie that I have seen in the past 10 years has beena foreign film:

The Pillow Book

It was an amazing film. Did anyone see it and like it as much as I did?
