Put in The Man With the Iron Fists and didn't make it past the credits. :roll: I loved Pulp Fiction, but nothing since. Luckily, we had a backup, The Expendables 2. Also horrible, but in a fun way. :D Except I only got about 5 minutes of Jet Li and that was it. I felt cheated.

I tried to have a movie night last last night just about every film I had my eye on was still unavailable
Gwishini Sanda (ghost house)
The movie follows a man who buys a (well, haunted) house and has to deal with the ghost living in it. Later on, through utterly cinematic contrivances, he sort of gets to turn the tables. In the last third of the movie, theres an evil company that wants to build a hotel that comes in and has really nothing to do with the rest of the movie, other than to finish the plot. That's probably the biggest problem with this horror/comedy.

the only link I found that was playable was non subbed
kuchisake-onna 2 (Slit mouthed woman 2) I could only find the trailer
but I found a good film and two shorts Little Witch Academia, how to train your dragon gift of the night fury and 200 pounds beauty

Watched predator today, forgot how much of a classic it is. Next gonna give elementary another go but the episode I saw last week left me thinking and how exactly is this anything to do with Holmes apart from the names obv!

Took the girls to see The Croods tonight... bit of a drive but worth it. Most theaters here can charge $15 a ticket and this one only charges $7.

I sooooo wanted to see Oblivion even though it does have idiot features Tom Cruise in it. ... but ...

Anyway.. it was a brilliant movie. I cried. And cried. I knew dad would HAVE to get back to his family. .. but I still cried.

I found a pretty good documentary series whilst mooching about called Oddities I'm enjoying it a lot despite some of it's really obvious staging but what I'm really doing is window shopping I love the weird and unusual and a lot of the customers who come in are a damn site weirder than the object them selfs

Careful Del, that's a spoiler!

Ghost, I've thought about watching that show. Good to hear you enjoy it! I'll have to give it a try.

Got my S1-S4 boxset of Castle last week, and watched S3 and S4 over the weekend.

Channel Five fupping about soooo much over S4 (making way after about 5 eppys for Big Ruddy Brother) that the rest of the season isn't due to air until 2014, that I forked out for the discs.

Now I'm climbing the walls for S5, and it hasn't even finished airing the States yet!

watching a mini series (7 eps) called Viking, based on Ragnar Lothbrok. Very good.

I discovered this YouTube video of a documentary about a group of salvage experts who try to repair and fly a B-29 bomber that crash landed in Greenland and has sat pretty much undisturbed for 50 years. It's a really fascinating show and well worth a look.

I'm waiting for the extended edition which is due out at the end of the year about a month or so before the second film hits the cinemas. The extended LOTR films made much more sense than the theatrical releases so I'm hoping for the same with the Hobbit
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
