  1. Seen a few new films these last couple of days

    Avatar = ok but the story was a bit blergh

    Inception = yeah I enjoyed this but I do not think it quite lived up to the hype

    And tonight

    Up in the air = I thought this was really good ... Much ether than I expected
  2. Is this a George Clooney film? I really enjoyed it!
  3. Yep, George .... I like him when he does things a little out there

  9. I thought it was worth watching but it did not wow me

    Santa brought us a new telly and his elves chucked in a BluRay player for free - obviously some sort of sales promotion they're having at the North Pole. Anyway, we've been lent 'Avatar' on BluRay so that's waiting in the line up.

    TV-based films that have impressed me this Christmas were the excellent coming of age story 'Juno' (on Film4 again this week) and the original 'Miracle on 34th Street'. With regard to the OP, I thought 'Up In The Air' was a very good film and well worth a look, with Clooney definitely playing against type.

    A film I wasn't impressed by was 'The Red Baron', which successfully ruined a potentially gripping tale by reducing it to computer game graphics with a soppy love story bolted on to just pull in a bigger audience. Very disappointing.
  11. Juno is an excellent film isn't it?

    An Oscar-winning screenplay and a soundtrack that grabs you by the lapels and shakes you. It's good to see directors are still coming up with fresh approaches to their material.
