What made me chuckle was the roof scene that clearly showed Granada studios, which was in Manchester, not London. :D

Started watching the new Cosmos (second ep airs tomorrow). My god is that a gorgeous series. Alan silvestri does the music. Seth MacFarlene and Brannon Braga produce. The effects are just, my god. And Niel DeGrasse Tyson is perfect as the host (there is even a little personal moment he has at the end of the first ep talking about meeting Carl Sagan. a very touching story.) and it pulls no punches either. especially when talking about the history of space science.

Started watching Cosmos,but was actually quite quickly disappointed and didn't make it all the way through sadly.

I did watch the last 40 minutes or so of Rope (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0040746) when coming across that on BBC2 today that while surfing the channels.
Great flic,loved it still!
The entire movie was shot in ten takes,you just don't get that anymore... :snooty: ;)

I saw a hunting in Connecticut filmed before The Haunting in Connecticut and based on the same apparent true events today and I enjoyed it very much a welcome bonus since I didn't know it was in the box set I brought yesterday I've also started to watch The Haunting in Connecticut but right now I'm too tired to fully enjoy it I'll continue to watch it tomorrow when I can process it properly

I got myself a membership for my local cinema. Can see as many movies as I like :P ( which means I also see a lot more bad movies. Need to get my money's worth out of it :P)

Last movie I saw was Need for Speed which was awful. However, every month our cinema organises a BBB night (Beer, burgers and blockbusters) And this month it was Need for Speed, so I had to go ;)

I watched an older Jet Li movie, The One. Not as good as I remembered, but still enjoyed it.

The second episode of Cosmos was pretty sweet. It was about evolution And my god did they pull no punches. :lol:

Also watched Walking With Dinosaurs. Gorgeous film, Beautiful animation, great live action scenery, great music. But the voice acting ruined it. John Liguizamo wasn't so bad as the narrator, but the characters..... And it wasn't so much that the acting itself was bad, it was that it all felt tacked on. The characters mouths don't move and they never act like anything other then animals. Like it wasn't in the original movie and they added it later.

I'm currently about halfway through watching The Rocky Horror Picture Show. My reaction? What. The. [EFF!]? :shock:

And seeing Tim Curry as Frank N Furter...well, lemme put it this way. Just about every other role I've seen him in, even as sadistic villains or killer clowns or smarmy POSes or Nigel Thornberry... they are normal by comparison. :shock:
