Blastro, I really enjoyed Warrior, as I said, it's good movie, not GREAT, there is more drama, even too over emotional for me, but fight scenes made credible and tastefully, without unnescessary sadism and blood. My rate 4/5. Definitely goin' watch again some time later.

Reckon I'll give that one a go, Sovs. As you say, it does look like it overplays the sentiment card a tad (could see that from the trailer) but so do the Rocky films, and I've always loved them - well, not Rocky 5, that was bloody terrible!
In fact I'll leave now, before I get into a full blown rant about Rocky 5 and what it did for my beloved Rocky series! Grrrrrrrrr!! : (

Iron Man 2 - Triple Play (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) The first was something differant to watch and was worth the time, as for iron man 2 i felt the time could have been better spent watching something else not a film i would watch again so glad it was loaned to me.

Yep, got no probs with number 6; just a shame it's predecessor left such a big hole for it to climb out of.
And the fact that it came 10 years too late.

Nickelcock Turtleback, are you the same one that wears tartan trousers. I agree, Boardwalk Empire, brilliant, can't wait for the next series.

I watched Cowboys and Aliens - though not having any hope at all for it, it turned out to be a pretty decent film imo. Good film to kill a couple hours with without too much thought or plot following.

Thats good to hear I quite fancied Cowboys and Aliens !!

I watched Hereafter, Clint Eastwood film staring Matt Damon. Not bad, not what I expected, very slow pace, but i quite liked it.

What is that actually about - I saw the trailers when it was released but couldn't gather what the plot was.

And probably not something to admit, but my viewing this evening will be Final Destination 5 (you just know it's gonna be bad when you've never heard of any of the actors and it's straight to DVD lol)

Dolly Parton wrote the song and her version is streets ahead of Witney's even though I loved WH at her height in the 80's before the drugs took hold:)

Well I watched 'The Kennedy Detail' again on the DISCOVERY channel. It told the story of J.F.K's personal bodyguard security people, and what they experienced on 22nd November 1963 and since. I thought it was a very interesting programme. I also watched 'Secret History: Sex and the Swastika'. Again another good little documentary. This one was primarily concerned with Hitler's intimate, and sometimes scandalous, relations with some of the females in his life. Unsurprisingly, he treated them all pretty badly. I had seen a similar very good documentary on this subject a year or so ago, but this was a good one too.

I thought it was good too, good mix of taking itself seriously and not, felt they could have done a bit more with Olivia Wilde though...

I Have Found It [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
after at last finishing Human Centipede 2 I needed something positive feeling, and what can beat romantic Indian movie, 2,5 hour of colourful dance choreography & singing with magnificient Aishwarya Rai. Not Bollywood this time, East Coast, Chennai, not tghat it makes much difference.

Watched a couple of duds over the weekend...

Transformers 3 - fantastic looking, are them there Transformer films, and I even enjoyed the first one. Very easy to tire of this stuff mind, and this one didn't do a great deal for me. Ok for the young uns.

Arachnid - might qualify as one of those 'so bad it's good' films. Plenty of unintended humour. Might be fun to watch with other folk after a few tinnies.

Nicle: No. avoid it. It is predictable. lacks plot or sense, the acting is atrocious and the direction leaves a lot to be desired. =)

Bollywood, feel sentimental lately, Pardes - DVD.
Three hours of course with plenty of dancing & singing. It's ok, unless start analysing or in a peevishly-snobbish mood.

Well I watched another fascinating documentary on t.v. last night. This one was on the National Geographic channel; 'Hitler's G.I. Death Camp'. I like to think I know a fair bit about WWII and to a certain extent the Holocaust too but this was a subject within the context of the war that I was really quite ignorant of. Ok, so essentially, the programme was about U.S. prisoners of war being treated as slave labour at a concentration camp called Berga in Germany during WWII. Jewish servicemen were selected and removed from some groups of captured American POW's. This was mainly on account of their religion being recorded on their 'dog' tags. However, those who tore off their dog tags were not guaranteed escape from removal from the other American POW's. This was because the Nazis used their warped, racial physical appearance identification method criteria to i.d. them. However, anyone who even 'looked' Jewish, in the eyes of the nazi military of course, but were not, irrespective of what they said, or of what was on their 'dog' tags, was also separated out too. This included a man called Tony, who was an army medic. He was actually of an American Indian race, but the Nazis thought he looked Jewish to them. Anyway, they all suffered the most appalling, inhumane treatment as slave labourers, often working in extremely dangerous mine shafts all day long with no food or water. Severe beatings were extremely common too and for the slightest false pretext. It was incredible that any managed to survive their ordeal. Some were indeed mercilessly shot out of hand for the slightest misdemeanor, again in the eyes of the Nazis, but also simply for succuming to their miserable trials. I was very extremely moved by the whole programme and especially the survivors stories as recounted by them in interview to camera. By the way, the amazing American Indian man, Tony, survived.

My son's home at the moment, so he dictates TV. Which usually means DAVE, repeats of Top Gear (groan), repeats of Scrubs and repeats of Big Bang. I'd never watched the latter before and now being forced to watch it, I have to admit that it's funny. Watch 3 episodes last night. Seems to be c..p on TV at the moment with the exception of Earthflight, which will watch tonight.

Big bang is surprisingly funny isn't it, for American comedy anyway, sheldon is brilliant and penny is gorgeous

LEP / Bauer - in agreement re Big Bang. Either of you see the episode with Sheldon as Flash - tearing his way to the Grand Canyon? Absolute scream!
