One of my favourite films from last year, i thought it was quite horrific for a animated movie aswell, not as in scary, but the monsters that are created were quite grotesque :lol:


The friend that I saw 9 with didn't like it. He said he didn't understand what was happening. :lol:

I thought it was pretty damn good.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!

Yeah I meant to say I dont intend to watch another Twillight film either. I had to go and see the first one at the cinemas to keep her indoors happy. lol.


I want something with a bit of mindless violence, gore, and Bruce Willis.

then i suggest waiting for The Expendables to come out in summer. could be a brilliant film or the worst excuse to make money. got a great cast list

Sylvester Stallone, Dolf Ljundrum (cant spell it), jet Li, Jason Statham, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin, Randy Couture, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis (cameo), Arnold Swarzzenager (cameo), David Zayas and the lovely Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia in Buffy).

Watched the Armando Iannucci comedy In The Loop last night. Always amusing, occasionally searingly funny, it's definitely worth the award nominations it's getting. Peter Capaldi's mouth contains some of the most inventive swearing heard on film. Nice (brief) live appearance by Cannabis Corpse too.
8/10

I watched The Road the other night. Not really as depressing as I expected it to be. Disappointed.

Still, a good film regardless.

Invictus - Nelson Mandella (Morgan Freeman) Inspires the south african rugby team t owin the rugby world cup and unite south africa. Average at best with some of the worst acting ive seen on the rugby field.

3/10

Lakeview is a decent little 'scary' neighbour movie, Samuel L. Jackson plays his part very well, nothing brilliant but worth a watch.

Choke is different, filled with black humour & benifits greatly from having Sam Rockwell as lead, not too everyones taste but pretty good.
