    I watched Dead Man's Shoes on TV the other day, which I liked.

    Last week I watched Cloverfield and Punch Drunk Love on iTunes as I was bored. I enjoyed them both.

    I was also cajoled into seeing Clone Wars which was better than expected, but an entirely pointless film nonetheless.

    Today I watched 24 Hour Party People again, because I love it so.

    Although not a feature film, I decided to get my DVDs out of From The Earth To The Moon. An excellent 12 part hourly drama-documentary with feature film production values. Excellently acted, and a superb reminder of the greatest technological achievement ever by mankind.

    Have recently watched " No Country for Old Men", "Before the Devil Knows Your Dead" and "There Will Be Blood" on DVD. Three brilliant films IMHO.

    I did the same. It's a frightening experience.

    Watched another of Shane Meadows' films the other day, Once Upon A Time in the Midlands. Really enjoyed it. It's got a touch of the Mike Leighs about it, red-nosed comedy with a slightly desperate edge. Rhys Ifans is excellent as an awful wilting stringy man who needs a hug.

    Yesterday I watched The Time Machine (60s version) which plays fast and loose with the classic story, turning it into a slightly cheesy anti-war film. Good entertainment though.

    Tonight, if I've got the time, I may well watch Re-Animator, which I recorded off the telly the other night.

    Just saw The Counterfeiters. Brilliant German film depicting the true story of a unit of Jewish forgers in a concentration camp, surviving by counterfeiting allied currencies for the Nazis in their attempt to destabilize the enemy's economy. Powerful and interesting stuff.

    Again, not a film but some old DivX's I've got off the shelf. James Burke's The Day The Universe Changed science history series from 1985. Cracking stuff, NOT chock full of special effects, but loaded to the gunnels with good philosophy, insight, and historical facts. Love the way he predicts the coming of the world wide web, of society changing fundamentally, and the explosion of everyday modern technology, which itself was underway during the series.

    There is a scene in one of the programmes which is quite staggering. It involves JB standing on a balcony while narrating his piece about advances in microtechnology, overlooking 3 engineers kneeling down in a circle, on a huge piece of white paper. They are concentrating on a square inch of the paper, and pointing out some tiny transistor gate design, an how it affects the immediate area. The paper is the area of a basketball court in square, and the design they are looking at is a 286 microchip. And we know how old they are now. It was a staggering image at the time, but just think how big an ordinary Pentium IV chip would be to the same scale.

    For those that don't know him, JB is a kind of Dan Cruickshank for science. But without the height. And JB has glasses. Here's a website and photo of JB today: http://k-web.org/public_html/jbmessage.htm

    And here's a tiny snippet from the last programme. There were 10 programmes, an hour long each.

    Really? I couldn't believe it was possible to be that bored by a film with so much knobbing.

    Watched No country for old men

    Disapointed, the book as usual was a lot better.

    Looking forward to seeing there will be blood.

    Watched Platoon the other night it's still a great film.

    Well, the only film I actually wanted to see at the cinema this year got postponed but I have watched airplane and borat recently. Both brilliant. How Sacha Baron Cohen got away from the rodeo still beats me. Apparently, it almost caused a riot!

    I saw Hellboy 2 last night and it was pretty dire. There were some really nice touches from Del Torro, as you'd expect, but everything got lost in a sea of 2nd rate cgi and a frankly embarrasing script. Time to make another of your amazing non-Hollywood, spanish civil war films like the devil's backbone and pans labyrinth. 1.5/5

    9 songs is a ****ing awful film. If you want vivid sex scenes, watch porn, otherwise what does this film have to offer?

    I saw Wanted, thought for a short while it was going to be surprisingly good, it wasn't.

    I also saw The Strangers and really couldn't see the point of it. It had nothing to offer in the way of scares, tension or social commentary. Rubbish.
    Cloverfield was great fun.

    3:10 To Yuma - watched this last night. Enjoyable if resolutely generic 'gritty western'. Cracking performances from Crowe and Bale and looks amazing (although the landscape does the work there). Really made me want to watch The Proposition again.

    Tonight, either Lust:Caution or Atomised, depending on how arty I fancy my sauce.

    I'm going to disregard your opinions based on your awful quoting technique

    (Have you seen Atomised? I read the book and am hoping the film will match it for reactionary kicks)

    In Bruges - didn't seem to know what it wanted to be - lurched between genres - Fiennes as Don Logan was a somewhat embarrassing rip-off too. Having said that it was quite enjoyable and Colin Farrell wasn't bad.

    The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - was alright. Very long and on too late but never watched it all the way through before so felt I should.

    Me and the wife watched two films last night

    The school of rock- She hadnt seen it and I wasnt going to turn it down, brilliant film, really funny with an awesome soundtrack 4/5

    Zodiac- Slightly long, but a entertaining enough film. Only let down was obviously the lack of a concrete conclusion but as they never caught the Zodiac there wasnt going to be. 3/5

    Didn't Catherine Zeta Jones look amazing in that? I didn't know it was her until I saw the credits.

    Apocolypto - wasn't expecting much but dissapppointed it wasn't a brutal as I 'd heard
    Anastassia - Taped off tv ages ago and only just got round to watching it - very boring so far.
