The book is embellished isn't it?

Most recent film I watched was 'Into The Wild', directed by Sean Penn and starring an impressive Emile Hirsch.

I am a massive fan of Penn's recent work, movies such as '21 Grams', 'Mystic River', and 'The Assasination of Richard Nixon' were all superb, and a great run of films.

Haven't seen 'Milk' yet (Emile Hirsch is in that as well) but I shall endeavour to do so. I enjoy many of Gus Van Sant's movies, even if he is intentionally provocative at times.
have you seen the indian runner? it was penn's directorial debut. based on a springsteen song called highway patrolman which is from springsteen's best album, the delightful nebraska.

Haven't seen it, no. That would have been during his Madonna era.

Is it worth a watch?

yeah, i think so - it's not a spectacularly memorable film but well worth a watch.

it seems to be expensive to buy though

Mystic River is a really engrossing watch. I'd not heard much about it when I watched it and the blurb on the back of the dvd seemed a bit boring but it was anything but.

Went to an arts cinema last night and watched Charlie Chaplin's "The Kid" followed by a Serbian film called Život je čudo (Life is a Miracle).

The latter was a bit of a slog being just over 150 minutes long but was ultimately worth it.

I saw watchmen yesterday which is probably the worst film I've ever seen at the cinema. I thought about walking out after the first hour and wish I had but I thought it might get better. No interesting characters, schizophrenic plot that never goes anywhere and about 2 hours 40 minutes too long.

I was thinking of watching this but having now heard a couple of places its rubbish I won't bother spending money on the cinema. Will wait til its on DVD I think. Think one review said it captures none of the depth of character which is apparently in the graphic novel (I haven't read it).


Did anyone else watch that Hes the Man film on 4 last nigh?? How stupid was that?!? You have to laugh Soapy Tit Wank. ...and Vinnie Jones was in it!!!

I'm either going to watch Saw 5 or Quarantine tonight. The former because I've just watched the first 4 and the latter because its got Dexter's oddly attractive sister in it.

I watched 12 Monkeys yesterday, and thought it was thoroughly awful.

What didn't you like about it?

Like Blade Runner I don't think I would have understood the plot completely if I hadn't read an explanation. Both films are very clever plot-wise, although Blade Runner has more depth.

Did you not think Brad Pitt was good in it? I think his character was pretty funny.

Brad Pitt's character (as well acted as it was) annoyed me. The film as a whole just didn't do a lot for me...
