Rio Bravo. Not matter how many times I see that film, it never gets old.

The film I watched most recently for the first time was 'The Desert Rats', about the Rats of Tobruk. James Mason's Rommel was brilliant, especially when paired with his role in the same part in 'The Desert Fox'.

The most recent 'new' film I saw was Ironman 2. Certainly very flashy and I got a good laugh out of the Senate Committee scene, but I wasn't mad about it overall.

Desert Rats? Yeah, I got it together with 'The Desert Fox' for about £5.

Rather reasonable, I'd say.

Most recently I watched Transformers 2 for the first time. I liked the first part very much, but this sequel turned out to be boring as hell.

Before that, a couple of months ago I saw Shutter Island. I expected some kind of fantasy/horror mixture, but was very pleasantly surprised with what I got instead. Then again, I had little info on the movie previously, so I had no idea Scorsese was behind it, until the credits started to roll.

I'm catching up on alot of TV shows. The last feature length film I watched was Percy Jackson. I'm not going to can it because it was exactly what it was supposed to be... a silly kids movie with mythological themes. Uma Thurman as Medusa was pretty cool tho'

Before that it was Peter Greenaway's Night Watch, for the second time in the last year. I love that movie I'm going through all of Greenaway's features for an article I'm working on.

I'll probably watch Kick Ass next, and Edge of Darkness is on the list too.

Shrek was funny, not as good as number 2, but very entertaining

8.1/10



thought it was amazing and very well done. I have no clue why it got bad reviews!

9.4/10



It was a good movie if you like action and adventure. No romance like the actual story of Perseus, and it differed a little bit from the actual myth

7.3/10



One of the best miniseries I have ever seen! Very true to Forester's novels, with only slight variations

9.6/10

I liked that too - especially Robert Lindsay as Sir Edward Pellew. I love that speech he gives when Hornblower goes aboard Indefatigable for the first time. The music is excellent too. The Mutiny and Retribution 2-parter was my favourite, I'd say.

What do you mean there was no romance? Not all romances have to be the typical Hollywood style of two people jumping each other’s bones. The relationship between Perseus and Lo was very well done. I just wish the rest of the movie would have showed the same restraint instead of being way over the top. 3 out of 10 stars

Kick-Ass: 6.5/10 - What an overrated movie...

Rewatched:

Watchmen (Director's Cut): 9.5/10 - Great masterpiece. Loyal to the novel.
Jurassic Park III - 7.5/10 - Just saw it to get ready for the Jurassic Park game that will be announced at E3.

Once upon a Time in America. Bloody long, but excellent.

I think I may like it even more than The Godfather.

I have seen more movies this year than I have ever seen in one year.

Also, I just finished the Percy Jackson series, and the labyrinth in that movie that you described in the beginning, I am wondering if it has anything to do with Daedalus and his labyrinth and the lost god of the wild.

The Snake Pit





Watched this last night. Back when it first came out it was one of the first movies to ever take viewers inside of a mental hospital. The story was good, and the acting was brilliant. I would suggest it to anyone who is a fan of old films.

I rewatched The Wicker Man for the first time in a long while the other week; the 1973 original, not horse-face's remake. Strikes me that the issue with the Hollywood version is that they seemed to take this deeply flawed yet immensely brilliant (not to mention disturbing) film as being what it always says in synopses: a horror film. It isn't. It's about what we consider to be normal, and what people are prepared to do for their faith, be it Puritan Presbyterianism or a reconstructed 'Old Religion'.

I just saw Prince of Persia and Eclipse. They were both pretty good, but there were flaws in them.

Matchstick Men. Even though Ridley Scott made better films; Matchstick Men is still one of the better genre mixing films I've seen in a long time, and is also one of Nicolas Cage's better films. Most of his other films are "meh" to say the least.

I've also been heavily interested in television mini-series lately. Currently, I'm following Planet Earth, and Band of Brothers; along with more traditional shows such as the sixth season of Futurama, and Doctor Who.
