I'm going to say that Donald Faison is still standing thanks to his Scrubs career!

Oh shit.

Both are really good.

Go see Slumdog if you want to be happy.

I suffered through Scrubs last night and can safely say Scrubs no longer counts. It's now on the same level as a straight to DVD Britney Murphy flick.

I agree with harry on this about Slumdog. 3 stars:

Name: Harry
Rating: ###
Comment: A perfectly enjoyable film to watch on the big screen, but the dull characters and the unimaginative and tedious romance at the core of the film don't match the exuberant cinematography and fascinating locations. Ultimately Slumdog Millionaire is forgettable and two-dimensional, and certainly nowhere near being among the best films of 2008 as so many people all over the world have suggested.

Scrubs is an entertaining show but it's become pretty formulaic.

Its worked off the same episode guide for each of its seasons. I like it if I don't think about it, but if I put one ounce of effort into watching an episode, I just get the shits!

There's still at least SOME life left in it. The first two eps of the new season have got me really excited.

Scrubs has the track record to demand relevance still, and until they cease to make it anymore then it will remain the case.

I fucking hate Linney. The rage grows with every minute of screentime and she almost made me throw up in Mystic River.

Well done to Mr Farrell with his Golden Globe for In Bruges, was deserved.

Julianne Moore is great. Magnolia is one of my top films, she was brilliant in that but then again nearly everyone was. Tom Cruise was 3 time champion of the world.

But that is my only complaint. A good laugh, certainly isn't Clerks, and its a shame about the final edit, i'd love to see the missing scenes to see if they fill the holes in the story. If you love crude humor and ever spent time thinking up porn movie names, then this will be worth the watch.

There are boobies


Yeh surely does end up in a big hurry with everything working out just peachy. Other than that its worth the watch.

I think Kevin Smith should go back to making good movies and leave stuff like this to Judd Apatow and Co.

They can't.
THEN (and only then) will it be a bad show... although I will happily admit it's lost the spark that it had in the first season or so.

well Zach Braph (JD) and Judy Reyes (Carla) are leaving after this season as is Bill Lawrence (the creator). So they have no choice but to do a new cast if they want to continue... can't afford the wages basically.

Well I knew Zach Braff and Bill Lawrence were leaving... but last I heard that meant the end of the show.

Zach Braff is synonymous with JD and Scrubs - they couldn't continue and hope for it to be successful without the creator and the main cast members.

Agree 110%.
Also Valkyrie not as bad as expected - lots of poms playing Nazis (mostly 'good' ones) Bill Nighy, Kenneth Branagh, Tom Wilkinson, Terence Stamp and even Eddie Izzard.

When I was watching the Valkyrie trailer it looked brilliant.... until I saw Tom Cruise's face pop up....

Bedtime Stories was utter shite, Adam Sandler cannot sink any lower. WTF was going on with the guinea pig? Fire whoever decided that cutting to this guinea pig every 5 minutes was going to be funny.

Producer: Watch this. A.W.E.S.O.M-O, given the current trends of the movie going public, can you come up with an idea for a movie that will break $100 million box office?
Cartman: [as A.W.E.S.O.M.-O] Um... Okay, how about this: Adam Sandler is like in love with some girl. But it turns out that the girl is actuallya golden retreiever or something.
Mitch: Oh! Perfect!
Executive: We'll call it "Puppy Love".
Mitch: Give us another movie idea, A.W.E.S.O.M.-O.
Cartman: Um... How about this: Adam Sandler inherits like, a billion dollars, but first he has to become a boxer or something.
Mitch: "Punch Drunk Billionaire".

Slumdog Millionaire was good I found it a bit predictable but some of the flashback moments had me laughing.

The Wrestler just depressed the shit out of me, still it was well made. Rourke was good will he bag an Oscar? Open field with most awards this year.
