Yes, Rufus Sewel. I was going to mention him but he didn't have much to do, did he?

I got a few laughs out of the film, especially in Dalton's scenes and Paul Bettany arguing with the sniper at the end. You're right that the story is lame (maybe not lame x 3) but it was enjoyable enough as a piece of fluff. They ought to have gotten someone more interested in the material than Depp, who seemed like he wanted to be somewhere else throughout the whole film.

Mr. Hulot's Holiday (1953) - 6/10
It's got some hilarious bits but gags are few and far between, and there's practically no story.

Murder, My Sweet (1944) - 7.5/10
Powell does a great Marlowe. Visually the movie is rather bland except for the passing out and delirium scenes. Too much is told in dialogue, there's very little action.

Psycho - 7(?)/10 - 2nd viewing. My first watch was nearly a decade ago (where does the time go?) and my previous rating was softened by memory. Well, I finally watched it today and I was a mite disappointed. Basically it's Hitchcock being a master craftsman, putting all his effort and skills into making a chintzy B Horror flick, but one wonders if it's worth the effort. There's just an anemic feel to a lot of it, and for all the stylish moments and the admittedly fascinating Norman Bates it's nowhere near his best, neither artistically nor entertainment wise. The acting is a high-point - even the usually wooden John Gavin and obnoxious Vera Miles come off well - and its big set pieces are appropriately well-done (I like Arbogast's demise better than the shower scene, though). And yes, Jinkies, the music is great. But the movie as a whole isn't.

Cats and Dogs (1982) Mild crime comedy with Bud Spencer and Milian subbing for Hill as he plays a petty criminal. I never laughed. 5\10

Yeah, your take pretty well squares with mine. I find, though, that I like the first half a whole lot better than everything after Marion Crane's demise. It's not merely that no shock can top the one where Hitch kills off his heroine mid-way through the picture: Marion is actually the most interesting character in the film, and her story--her steady movement away from civilization into what Robin Woods called "the chaos world"--is compelling. Norman Bates is interesting up to a point, but nothing matches the scene where the two talk together in the Bates Motel office. Norman on his own is just one note played too often. And speaking of notes: yeah, the music is great, but Re-animator's appropriation of it has pretty much ruined it for me.

Btw, should I mention how fabulous the Blu-ray looks?

My Gun Is Quick (1957) Third Spillane novel brought to the screen Robert Bray was an acceptable Hammer, action is moved to California again, women are "hammer-tomically" correct but sexuality is again neutered. 5/10

Wolf (1994) - ?/10

Watched like an hour of this until I went to sleep: I sincerely don't know if it was even possible to make it any more predictable. Maybe it deserved a fiver later on, don't know.

Lars and the Real Girl (2007) - 8/10

This must be as good as a comedy drama can be. Hilarious, brilliant, great performances.

I do not remember when was the last time I said something like this for a new movie.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1 - 7/10

Quite ok, faithful to the book and has enough time for everything. Way better than the last two ones. Still jsut 7/10 because I hated the first half of the book. Nothing happens.

The Miracle Worker (1962) - 6/10
Arthur Penn's melodrama about a mute/deaf/blind girl and her teacher. Just about every scene with the mom (Inga Swenson) is horrible tear jerking but the scenes between the teacher and the girl are pretty energetic.

Rare Exports (2010) - 7/10
Fun.
