Endure?! Many people pay a hefty monthly subscription to see just that thing...

Don't get me wrong, i'm a big fan of the undressed female form - but i bet those people wouldn't pay the same fee if they had to sit in a room full of complete strangers whilst watching it

in other news i watched this today:

Tamara Drewe:Decent enough comedy drama, good acting (esp Tamsin Grieg) and well paced. A shame to simplify the source material in places, but this is a good, solid British comedy which was a nice break from the american entries of late.

Other Guys: A decent premise, a few good laughs but not much else. It's too long and spends far too much time indulging recurring gags that just aren't that funny.

Devil: Good story, and quite well made. At 80 minutes however it feels like an extended twilight zone episode with higher production costs.

Despicable Me: Enjoyable, though emotionally flat in places. Big bonus points for sheer cartoon silliness though, Road runner fans should appreciate this.

Legend of the Guardians: Great 3D, decent plot, very hit and miss characters. This is a proper kiddie adventure epic, the first for quite a while.


(yes i know i am watching a crap load of kids films )

in that vein, you should check out how to train your dragon - it's awesome sauce!

i just saw -

predators - watch Adrian Brody struggle to carry around a gun that's bigger than him, and watch Larry Fishburne lose the plot completely [might have something to do with the fact his daughter has started a career in porn!]...mostly a "meh" film...

current wip -
dark angels seventh company
skaven horde
the warriors of ulthuan

foible - foi·ble / ˈfoibəl
noun: a minor weakness or eccentricity in someone's character:
"they have to tolerate each other's little foibles".

Red: Good fun but not a lot else. The acting and story were very good, but it didn't blow me away.

Jackass 3D: Exactly as expected. Funny, infantile twattishness. The use of 3D is good, and it's very funny, not sure if it's worth £10 tho.

Let me In: Haven't seen the original yet, but thought i'd give this a go. Overall it was adequate to good in almost all aspects except the concept -which was excellent. Enjoyed it but i'm sure i'll enjoy the first go even more.

Harry Potter's deadly cowbells - part 1: I've sort of enjoyed the last few films, but this was a peculiar beast. The boring parts seem to drag on far too long, and the action scenes (bar the first) were far too quick and rather hollow. The denouement to handle the split between the films is also pretty terrible...it just sort of... stops...

It's been a while...

The Butler - I don't need to be reminded for 3 hours that racism was bad. Oprah Winfrey is terrifying and Forest Whittaker has a gimpy eye.
