Really?! I'll have to watch again just to listen.

just watched dredd, die hard and attack the block in the future, not a bad bit of escapism, they could have been a bit more true to the comic tho in certain aspects

Fantastic film. The book is even better
No. I don't imagine anyone west of Bree would have much interest in "adventures."

Saw a few episodes of s1 & 2 of Sherlock. Enjoyed very much. Especially chuffed to see Mark Gatiss as Mycroft. Have also been watching s2 of The Walking Dead. It's not too bad, I've read quite a few of the comics. The SFX are good but I laughed a few times. Some of the characters are hard to like.

I watched The Hunger Games, and it was pretty good, but the olographic stuff was absurd and out of place, and ruined the atmosphere for me. My bf (he's called Emi, you pronounce that like Amy) didn't like that bit too.

Has anyone seen it? Because I have a question, so I'll put it as a spoiler, and it's a big spoiler so don't read it if you haven't seen the movie:
Spoiler: show
The little girl called Rue that is friends with Katniss gets killed in front of her. Later Katniss fights with a girl when she goes to get the medicine, and that girl says she killed Rue, but we saw it was a boy killing Rue, and Katniss killed that boy with an arrow. So.. was she just lying to get Katniss upset? But Katniss was there, so she knew she was lying? I know that it''s a usual plot to have the attacker waste time talking so to have an excuse to get Katniss rescued by Rue's 'team-partner' , but it didn't make any sense, I mean less than usual, if it was just a lie... What did I miss here?

Watched The Pirates for family movie night last night. Some cute parts, but mostly disappointing.

For Crys

Spoiler: show
The girl didn't know that Katniss had seen Rue's killer, so she thought she was making her mad which would make Katniss more likely to make a mistake during their fight. And she was pretty evil, so she wanted to torture Katniss before killing her. I agree it was a bit of a lame way to stall for time though.

Galaxy Quest.

S4 of Fringe. Bloody brilliant it was too.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Terminator Salvation. Actually very good and I'd only just recently heard of it. Of course I now have found that there was a TV series called The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Maybe when that money from the Nigerian email comes through I might get that. ;)
