Can't quite remember the last movie I watched but I'm thinking it's probably 'The Bishops Wife' on Christmas eve.

Crackin old Christmas film with David Niven and Carry Grant and one of my fave films evah!

Tomorrow When The War Began, a Red Dawn rip-off based on the first volume of a series of Aussie young adult novels.  It's not terrible, but does take too long to get going and the pace for the rest of it is stops and starts.  The characters are pretty lightweight, with the only sympathetic one being the generic bible-thumper who considers the consequences of murder and ultimately accepts them by not wallowing in self-pity like the rest do even before they've actually done anything.  The rest are faceless by-the-numbers, not helped by some pretty terrible dialogue that sometimes sounds like the cast are just reading off casting notes or something.  It also ends abruptly.
Nice explosions, though, and the few action scenes have the benefit of being easy to follow rather than simply comprising of shaky camerawork and lens flares.  All in all, you'd need to have run out of anything better to watch to have to resort to this, but it's not that terrible, just banal in its competence.

Not the last movie i saw, but certainly on my list to see sharpish: Titanic 2. 'On the centennial of the original disaster, a new luxury liner is named titanic 2 and sets out for new york... Into the path OF A TSUNAMI!'

This film will be mine, oh yes. And as it's only £7 on first day of release, it'll be three quid in no time.

Double bill at the picture house for me today.

The Fighter was better than I thought it would be, but that's mainly down to the performances. Bale is a bit showy at times but I won't baulk if he wins the Oscar. Amy Adams is a real titan of an actor.

Even better IMO was Rabbit Hole. I steeled myself beforehand in case OBositiy prevailed, but this was just a great movie, undercut throughout with torrents of grief that never overwhelm the script's wicked sense of humour. I know a bunch of people don't like Nicole, but she's really tremendous here and I'd like to see her do more villainous roles in future. Also there are a bunch of awesome Dash Shaw illustrations to gawp at which came as a welcome surprise. Highly recommended.

Had a bit of a movie day on Saturday, when I watched:

Dragonwyck (not bad, Vincent Price)

Big (didn't actually watch it all and still never seen it from beginning to end, but still a great movie)

The Man With One Red Shoe (a Tom Hanks comedy wtih Jim Belushi, which I'd never even heard of before - not great, but a few laugh out loud moments)

Jane Eyre (pretty good, nice atmosphere, great performance from Orson Welles, but I expect a lot of the original story was been cut)

Regards

Robin

Watched that as well and rather enjoyed it... some wonderfully florid dialogue, a young Vincent, and a touch of deliciously gothic ambience. Quite agreeable.

How to Train Your Dragon, which I was hugely impressed with. Gotta love those Scottish Vikings  :-\

More recently The Road to Perdition. I know, it's been ages, but never caught it before, great film.

I started watching STARSHIP TROOPERS 3: MAURADER on Five last night.  I'm not sure I'll make it to the end...

 (and not because they've somehow made Jolene Blalock look hideous)

Somebody please explain to me why I should watch the remaining hour and a half.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

That was incredible!!! Jolene Blalock looked unshaggable -that was an achievement surpassing any of James Cameron's visual tricks.

The remainder of the 'film' itself was unwatchable -they managed to make anything with Danny Dyer in look good...

I saw Tangled in the cinema last night. Some good laughs, nice animation, some great characters all marred by horrible, dreadful clichéd 'broadway show-tune' style songs

Oi Disney...there is no need for the songs, even kids don't like them ! just stop

The whole scene in the Snuggly Duckling cracked me up.

Maybe I'm just sick.
