[quote="Quatermass"] QI...it's helped cheer me up immensely over the past little while.

QI is one of my cures for the doldrums as well.

Ernest & Celestine looks great :)

I've been watching The Lakes with Rory McGrath. A natural wonder alright, the lake district not Rory.

I watched the first episode of this. Mainly because it has Tamsin Greig in it. Sad but very good telly.

Watched Beowulf last night, the CGI version from 2007 as I found the DVD in the charity shop for 99p. Not bad as something to watch but hopelessly inaccurate to the original story and the fact it is completely CGI makes it look more like a video game than a film. As Neil Gaiman is credited as main writer and one of the executive producers I was hoping for a script closer to the original

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

We watched Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 over the weekend. Not as good as the first one, but still cute.

Watched After Earth starring Will smith and his son. not bad, thought the "monster" (the ursa) looked awesome but it was only shown near the end of the film (apart from the small clips from flashbacks etc. the rest of the movie was dissapointing.
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

Philomena was beautiful. Very glad I saw it.

Have watch the first 2 episodes of this show. Maybe slightly premature but I highly recommend it.

Last night, The Sixth Sense (charity shop find). Forgot how understated and powerful this film is. Quite hypnotic in fact. Just shows that you don't have to go over the top to make a point.

We watched Red 2 last night. I was so worried I wouldn't enjoy it, but it was great! John Malkovich and Mary Louise Parker absolutely steal the show, just like they did in the first one.

It's excellent I gave a full set of DVD's to my sister for Christmas as she loves detective drama and this is a great example. Have you tried Borgen as well?

Not yet, it's next up along with Broen :D only I'm a bit scared the added Swedish will confuse me...
