One of the advantages of being a student again is that I can go to morning showings, which should be quieter (and, indeed, shouldn't be sold out, as the prime time showings of Dark Knight probably will be). I dislike crowded cinemas.
Oh, hi. I'm not Hollywood Steve. You caught me typing a new signature. This is the story of Kenny Loggins writing 'Footloose'.

Saw The Machinist on TV the other night and it was good.
It's very psychological and has taken me until now to decide whether I liked it or not.
At the time I did not appreciate the ending at all and saw it as a cop out by the writers, but I now understand it and has added a new level to the film.
It's definitely a 'only-watch-once-film' but I still recommend it!
8.5/10

Don't really see the Pulp Fiction or Sin City references but it is a great film. I never worked out why it didn't get a decent sized release in this country, hugely underrated.

I went to see the Dark Knight last night and the screening was pretty rammed.

I liked the movie a lot, although not QUITE as much as I thought I would. I think if I'd ignored the hype and had gone in without any expectations then I would be raving about it. I'll still definitely be buying the DVD, but I didn't like this one quite as much as Ironman.

I thought Heath Ledger's take on the Joker was very good and more menacing than Jack Nicholson's, although I still prefer Nicholson's. (But then again, my favourite James Bond is Roger Moore :lol:)
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!
