On the flight over: Brave, The Dark Knight Rises, Spiderman and Total Recall.

I really enjoyed Brave, thought the Batman film was lacking in action and didn't seem to know where it was going. Spiderman was good, but do we really need a rehash of the same story? But the real surprise was the remake of Total Recall. I thought it was excellent. :)

I saw The amazing Spiderman some days ago, and although it was not bad, I found it a totally unnecessary remake, I could have easily done with just the other one. I was never particularly fond of Tobey Macguire, but I prefer him to Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker.

My friend & I watched Hugo Wednesday evening. I got the DVD for Christmas & we'd missed it in the cinema. Lovely film & brilliantly acted.
Best wishes,

We saw MIB3 last week. Cute, but not fantastic. And got to see The Hobbit over the weekend - loved it! :D

Just finished watching Mary and Max - pretty dark but funny and heartwarming!

Watched Total Recall last night, delighted to see just how evil the British have become :twisted: I have this feeling that Hollywood is preparing the US for an invasion of Britain.... :shock:

I didn't do much last night but I found a good film on-line Go Find a Psychic!
and the other day I stumbled across Hinokio: Inter Galactic Love which is one of the sweetest films I have seen in a long time

I watched it with HORRIBLE subtitles, don't know why anyone'd bother, but it was funny at some point where it said: "Ow, look! I can almost see BUDHAPEST from here!" :lol: we did it! Budha is ours 8-)

Watched Battleship. It was actually a very fun movie. I got the sense watching the trailer and think it more after seeing the movie, that some suits decided to have this done, and when it was turned over to the writers they were like "Really? you want to make a movie about what?" but then said "screw it" and just decided to have fun with the idea. Some of the navel battles were pretty unique and over all the action was good. mostly it's all tongue in cheek.

The one interesting thing is that, though they don't get into the motivations of the aliens further then they are a scouting party and want to send off a signal to bring more of them here, how they are portrayed is a bit more in depth then the usual invading fair. They aren't shown to be merciless killers, and only destroy or kill for tactical reasons or if they are attacked. on several occasions they simply let people go because they aren't a threat. I thought it was a nice touch, and surprised it was there at all.

Watched Snow White and the Huntsman last night. Wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't great or anything, but more entertaining than I expected.
