    Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
    My missus hired it on DVD. It was pretty funny.
    Same guys who did 40 Year old Virgin and Knocked up and Superbad. But was more of a romantic comedy than those I guess. Russell Brand's character was fuckin funny. Had some great lines.

    I would say it was alot better than Superbad which I thought was total shithouse.

    Mila Kunis was freakin gorgeous in this movie. I didn't really rate her before.. thought she was ok... but she looked stunning in this. Beautiful eyes and hair... did that sound gay?


    Be Kind Rewind
    To be honest I only hired this cause of Jack Black.
    Basically, it was about a small/old and humble video store in black America owned by Danny Glover's character. Glover goes away and leaves the store in charge of his adopted son played by Mos Def. Jack Black's charater is a friend and accidently wipes all of the tapes in the store... This leads them to recreate all of the films using no budget and hand held camera's etc. The first film they 'Swede' (recreate) is Ghostbusters... pretty funny. They do a shitload of Sweded films and business picks up etc....

    The sweded film parts are funny shit. The first bit of the movie was a bit stupid but when the plot develops and they start sweding the movies it gets better. Then half way through it kinda turns into a serious almost moving film and the end is actually quite touching....

    Better than I was expecting

    The last movie I went to watch was 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, but I was ridiculously hungover and fell asleep a short way in. Maybe I will try again later.

    Last movie I saw was Step Brothers, another funny/strange Will Ferrel movie, if you like what he does you'll enjoy it, if you don't, it will bore/disgust/annoy you


    I enjoyed it

    Last movie I watched was Mad Max. Incredibly dated but still has some really cool bits.

    I saw a few on the aeroplane back from Jordan, but the only one that stood out was "Bee Movie". The inflight entertainment system failed halfway through it, and I didn't give a damn. Actually, it even made me a bit happy.

    3:10 to Yuma & Awake.

    3:10 was fantastic! Christian Bale is always entertaining and Russell Crowe did a decent job (i'm not much of a fan of his) Awake was pretty good too. No time be much more descriptive atm. Got Be Kind Rewind to watch sometime soon.

    Tropic Thunder - Very funny, typical Stiller & Co stuff, has a Tom Cruise cameo that is a must see. Coming from someone that despise that freak, that's saying something. :) RD Jr is awesome, as usual.

    The other night we watched The Terminal. I didn't expect it to be whimsical. Not bad, but you have to love Tom Hanks. Really, really love him. He's in every scene almost. The real story about Mehran Nasseri would have been more involving.

    Tropic Thunder is high on my list when it comes to DVD, and I loved The Terminal.

    It was funny, which I didn't expect considering the topic. Nice movie. The Indian guy is hilarious.

    Oooo. Is that like the Argento-fest from a few years back? I have most of Kubrick's stuff, but if there's something on while I'm at work I'll definitely tune in.

    Didn't see the Argento one, but I assume it was similar. They're showing a film every night. I'm not sure when it finishes; it started on Sunday with 2001 A Space Odyssey. I couldn't watch it because I had people over....grrr. I've still not seen that one. Lolita's on tonight. The films are on quite late.

    I'd stay up, but I have work at 6am. You have to catch 2:ASO at some point. It doesn't make a lot of sense, but that doesn't matter.
