I SAW STRANGER THAN FICTION TONIGHT.......

yes, I am pretty happy about it......

and it was pretty good

watched Hanna - Saoirse Ronan is luminous - Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana brilliant



then watched Limitless with Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro and Abbie Cornish (Ann Friel from Brookside was in it too)



it was pretty good but quite amoral in its message - basically kill anyone to get to the top.....

then I saw Source Code which was a lot better than I had anticipated......



that was last weekend

I'm tossing up watching either The Way Back with Colin Farrell and Saoirse Ronan again

or Priest or Paul or The Box or Rango tonight - not that keen on watching Rango

momentous night for me - I started watching The Way Back......



this is probably going to be my second all time favourite after The Thin Red Line (although I haven't seen Tree of Life yet)

it is extraordinary......macabre, beautiful, poetic, brutal and stark......

third favourite would be The English Patient.......

two good Irish actors - Saoirse Ronan and Colin Farrell - as well as an incredibly strong performance from Ed Harris

I've never even heard of Jim Sturgess, but he is an eye-opener

directed by Peter Weir - I encourage everybody - Eddie, Nashie and especially Pinz to watch it

X Men: First Class.

It was awesome! A blatent violation of the laws pf physics...but I suppose for the concept of X Men to work in the first place you have to suspend them. Plus there were scenes set in Oxford, it was really funny because everyone in the cinema cheered when they were on. And also laughed and jeered since they turned Hertford college into a pub and had the characters graduate out of the Rad Cam. All in good spirits!

Terence Mallick's new film. Wow, it's hard to know what I think about this movie. I'm already tempted to go and see it again. On the whole, I liked it. Some of it is fantastic, some of it works less well. To be fair, I spent a lot of the film not knowing what the fuck is going on. I've never even seen a film that is remotely like this one. My main issue with it is the constant whispering of 'profound' stuff. Maybe if they just spoke normally it would be OK, but it really is hard not to laugh at the whispering narration, it's kind of like an aftershave (cologne) advertisment where you just know they are speaking bullshit because they are bloody whispering it to make it sound intense and intelligent.

There's a lot of interesting themes going on, but this film certainly is not for everyone. In fact, it might not be for many people at all.

The Kings Speech. Didn't think that much of it pig

None of the actors looked anything like the people they were meant to be.

The bloke who played Edward, was, I think, in Neighbours years ago?

Anyway, I wouldn't have given it a Blue Peter badge let alone an Oscar

I thought it was nice enough. But no, certainly not that keen on it.

That doesn't really bother me. I prefer good actors rather than people who were chosen simply because they looked similar.

He was indeedio, good spot! He's been in some great films (check out 'Memento' and 'LA Confidential')

Not only is it about Royalty, it's also about someone with a disability. It just had to win Oscar's, it's in the rule book.

I watched the newish Brighton Rock last night. Why was is set in the 60's for goodness sake, it wasn't like Pinky was a mod. The Mirren woman was in it and John Hurt, but it still wasn't any good, and neither were they. Really confusing and a lot of it bore no relation to the book, whatsoever.

Was also annoying when watching scenes of Brighton that were in fact Eastbourne.

The two young leads that played Pinky and Rose were pretty good though.

I think I will give up on new films and just watch old ones. Suspect

A terrific film set in Australia's outback. This one has John Hurt in it as well. Highly recommended, although be warned: it's violent.

A peculiar film directed by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson. I didn't really enjoy it to be honest. The 'graphics' were bizarrely bad, I have no idea if this was done on purpose. Also, I didn't really 'get' what the film was about at all.... Don't worry if you get murdered, it's all gravy baby. Maybe those that have read the book can shed some light on this?

Stanley Tucci is in it, with an Eno soundtrack. So yeah, it's OK.

"Angels And Demons" on television . In my opinion like the book it was better than "The Da Vinci Code"

Pretty good. Gotta love Coogan.



It's OK, certainly not terrible. Was pleasantly suprised to see the legend that is Stanley Tucci.... clearly the best thing in it!

Pacino plays Jack Kevorkian, the doctor known as 'Doctor Death' due to his activities/beliefs relating to 'the right to die' - which gained him the nickname 'Dr Death'. Kevorkian served eight years for 2nd degree murder for killing one of his patients.

The film was pretty decent, with a good performance from Al - it's great to see one of the old skool great actors challenging himself in such a big way.

I also re-watched 'The Dark Knight', which gets better with each viewing.
