    saw the new Hulk film - i thought it was very good (by no means outstanding)- much better than expected - ED Norton did a great job as Dr. banner

    Loved the interlinking of the other marvel superheroes in the film(like what they did in Iron Man)

    An enjoyable 2 hrs spent watching it

    You don't have to. They're not connected stories. I think it does pay off to watch them in order though. Leone grew up as a film maker while he made them. Each one is a bit more complex and clever than the last. Just a warning: the dubbing is very poor, and the stories (particularly individual scenes of bravado) can be a bit silly and over the top, but they're great cinema.

Baby boots. Never used".
    Never heard that before, wow, that is brilliant.
    Dorothy Parker popped straight to mind at the first sentence but after that...
    Anyway, one of her more famous theatre reviews: "The House Beautiful is the play lousy".

    Last film I saw was Fargo a few nights back and it was, as ever, 10/10.

    Watched The Flock, thought it was very poor. Was Xtra Visions movie of the week so i thought it would be decent enough but was very disappointed.

    ...a brand new dyson couldn't suck like it. It's like they drafted in the scriptwriters from Home and Away to tighten up the dialogue a bit.


    Ha ha ha great review Lionel.I couldn't,wouldn't, watch that if they stuck an AK 47 behind my head.Its for girls.

    Crank.

    Ridiculous, mindless, brain-dead action film. Which makes it the best thing ever.

    Crank is wonderful. Pure adrenaline. You'll believe Jason Statham can fly.

    Watched "The Children of Huang Shi" www.imdb.com/title/tt0889588/ the other night. First movie I have watched in a while without switching it off. It makes for a refreshing change from the usual Hollywood drivel that's being released lately. I'd give it 8/10.

    Rented Wanted last night. Grand if you want to sit for 2 hours and not think but fairly poor show IMO.

    Having watched Oliver Stone's JFK last night, I am now ready to bump the 'Conspiracy' thread that was knocking around a few weeks ago.

    Rented "Smart People" last night. Mildly amusing nice movie along the lines of Juno (Ellen Page is in it too) or As Good as it Gets. Not an awful lot happens but its told well and family members are recognisable. Dylan laughed more than I did but it is perfect Sunday evening after a hard weekend kinda viewing.

    Rear Window is class. Probably my favourite Depp movie after Cry Baby. Lidl have some of those 3 movies in one case sets going for 9.99 at the mo and one of them was Rear Window, Identity and Panic Room which is not bad. Havent seen Panic Room but love the other 2.

    wait magicme i think you're thinking of a different movie - is it 'secret window'?? rear window's the hitchcock one with jimmy stewart and his broken leg spying on all his neighbors! unless i'm thoroughly mixed up, easy believe me.

    It's the original, but have only got around to watching Rear Window which I absolutely loved. My Lovefilm DVDs arrived since then so have watched Casablanca, Quantum of Solace, Buster Keaton's The General and The Maltese Falcon since then. Casablanca was as good as rear window, some terrific performances, The General was decent enough, although dragged a little at time and TMF was enjoyable enough last night; I am becoming quite the Bogart fan. I have The Assassination of Jesse James to watch tomorrow and then I'll get back to Wicker Man and TGTB&TU. Phew, it's been a slow week!
