Ingredients:

- Cloudy, cold Sunday afternoon
- Duvet
- Sainsbury's 'Basics' popcorn (96p)
- United 93
- Tropic Thunder


I thought United 93 was incredible (subject matter aside). Knowing what was going to happen created immense tension, and my heart was pounding watching it.

The final scene was hard to watch - I won't deny I had a lump in my throat (missus was blubbing). Astonishing stuff.

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.

Anyone else watch anything good over the weekend?

I thought that was ok, quite heart-warming at the end. And the Ghostbusters scene was brilliant!

I bought Step Brothers on DVD!

Seen it a few times before, but I'm sure the bonus material will be worth the purchase!

Day The Earth Stood Still - Quite dire, more like a Green Party documentary than Hollywood 'Blockbuster'.

Transporter 3 - Totally silly, but very enjoyable

Wall-E - Enjoyable, but what is it with Hollywood and hatred of the Human Race of late!

The new Guy Richie film can't remember the name.... Rocka/Rolla or something. Quite good I thought.
