The Terminal starring Tom Hanks.

More than a few implausibilities but still packs an emotional punch.

I liked it right from the beginning, the characters and scenery eliminated the need for a proper story. I just wanted to watch them, I wanted to be that girl on the train.
But unfortunately it became a mystery, and the big reveal came long before the official reveal.
It could have been more, it could have been....a season.

Junior.

Surprisingly poignant. No doubt the Reitman influence. And Schwarzenegger can do more than say "I'll be back." Who knew?

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion starring Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow

Not as funny as it thinks it is but entertaining in its way. Also notable for early appearances by some stars who would become much better known, including Camryn Manheim (The Practice, Ghost Whisperer) and Alan Cumming (The Good Wife, Instinct).

Probably dating myself here, but I can't get past thinking of Cumming's American career as something new and novel. Even his earlier stuff.

To me, he'll always be that guy from The High Life.

And if the rest of that video is anything to go by, that free milk certainly gave him a lotta bottle.

I watched Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney in The Ghost and Mrs Muir

Before that, Alan Cumming was the guy from The Airzone Solution to me. Which had starred Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Peter Davison, Jon Pertwee, Nicola Bryant, Michael Wisher and Nicholas Briggs. Those names seem vaguely familiar to me but I can’t quite place them.

Lovelace starring Amanda Seyfried

Unusual non-linear narrative revealing the tragic story of the artist formerly known as Linda Lovelace.

It was on YouTube, and I had never seen the full movie. It was more fun than I thought it would be - and I think it's time for a sequel.
