The Dark Knight - very good indeed, Heath Ledger is genuinely scary.

Thankfully we had Tropic Thunder to follow - pretty amusing. Didn't realise Tom Cruise was in this...he was hilarious. Downey Jnr stole the show though.
Saw this last week - very funny, especially Tom Cruise!

Robert Downey Jnr. "What d'you mean 'YOU PEOPLE'?" biglaugh

Ended up watching a good part of Shawshank Redemption the other night due to channel hopping, thought I'd watch a bit of it before going to bed, of course even though I've seen it 3 or 4 times before, I ended up watching the rest of it. As good as ever.

I also watched this, though T. Dalton is perfectly acceptable as a Bond, I really didn't think that much of this film. Good lorry scene at the end but not much else, seemed a bit drab (though Q lightened the mood a bit)

Quantume of Solace was good, but occaisionally disinteresting.
American Beauty was as good as ever, althought I don't think the Italian dubbing for Thora Birch was the right actress (too "girly")

The closing scene is really powerful. Fantastic film.

Snap.

I would have said "was genuinely scary". I thought the film was brilliant and cannot wait for the next installment.

Kung-Fu Panda, Madagascar 2, Bolt, Meet the Robinson, - Watch them with my son, these were actully good films. He actully sat still and watch Bolt all the way through when we were in the cinema.

IronMan, The Dark Knight, Cloverfield - Was a bit dissapointed with the end of Cloverfield as i wanted to know what happened to the Alien. Ironman was a brain off enjoyable film and i love the performance of Bail and Ledger in the DK.

Forgot to mention Shoot 'Em Up biggrin

The most unrealistic film I have ever seen, but still found it funny to watch!

Plus it has Monica Bellucci in cloud9

Same, its hated on by some people, as its a cool film to love, but there is a reason for its success, it truly is great.

And to prove the Oscars are a bunch of st, it didn't even get one!

American History X - Been meaning to see it for ages, and I'm glad to say it was as good as everyone told me it was going to be!

Indeed. Great film, even on the 27th viewing...

I thought it was going to be a serious film when I read the synopsis. How wrong was I? laugh

After 5 mins I realised what I was going to be in for, I still never felt the need to change channels, though.

The fact that it was so unbelievable made it a bit easier to watchlaugh

Sat and watched 12 Monkeys on Saturday night (me and mate had the lurg and track day on Sunday so stayed in) we didn't mean to watch it but caught the beginning and then couldn't turn it off, really enjoyed it.
