:roll: :D Beg my pardon, I've worked too many night shifts this week. I meant I've seen the trailer for 47 Ronin, it showed before another movie I watched.

Ahh, OK :D
Listen.

I saw The Hobbit. Smaug was very, very good.

And Bard, he was good as well.

No, not yet. :( We tried a few days ago, but the showing we went to was sold out. The theater is really busy over the holidays. So, we'll probably try again next weekend.

I'm watching David Attenborough Night at the museum and I'm wondering if this happens every night or just the nights when David Attenborough happens to be there because London's Natural History Museum must have one hell of a clean up crew

Can't help but feel that from what I've seen of the trailers they have completely missed the point of the story altogether and have merely taken the day dreaming concept forgetting the actual point and meanings and built a completely unrelated story.

It's only a very short story Ghost. You can read it here - http://ebookbrowsee.net/the-secret-life ... -d74860345

You're completely right Pip. But that's Hollywood for you.

Watched Troll Hunter again. I think it's a really good monster movie. I say, Norway itself is just as much a star, amazing landscape.

That's not to say it won't be a decent film.

thank you for the short
saw R.I.P.D. yesterday and it was a good low brained film sort of like hellboy meets dead like me
I enjoyed it very much it's about as deep as a puddle and been done before in all sorts of ways but fun
needless to say I've never read the graphic novels from which the film is based from and it's unlikely I'll ever will but I wasted and hour and half with a stupid movie that doesn't pretend to be anything but stupid

I agree Ghost. We felt like it was a supernatural Men In Black, but not nearly as good.

We saw Elysium a few nights ago. Very predictable, but not as bad as I thought it would be.

3 films in the last 3 days, Anchorman 2 was funny at times but the lack of a storyline took away from it. Mandela was quite good but wouldn't rush to see it. Tonight was All is lost which was superb and is a definite must watch, amazing performance from Robert Redford
