The Hunted and The Boondock Saints

With Markus. While Benicio Del Toro is a first-rate actor, he picks some really crappy movies to partake in; The Hunted was terrible. Conversely, The Boondock Saints was great; Willem Dafoe hammed it up amongst an impressive cast of Irish and wannabe Irish. The Russians, as always, got the rawest deal.

Pirates of the Caribbean

In Göteborg, in English with Swedish subtitles at Filmstaden. The ticket was about $AU18 and the seats are cramped (and pre-allocated). This might be the best way of picking up the vocab... (The movie itself was pretty funny, with Johnny Depp hamming it up beautifully. Geoffrey Rush makes a good pirate... Only probs were that I couldn't make much sense of the plot, and the fight scenes were a tad predictable and mostly pointless. Great CGI, though.)
