Well, not today, but this weekend; Munich and Beowulf and Grendel. Munich is bloody impressive.

beowulf and grendel was quite depressing, with one or two moderately funny moments.

I think it was meant that way, sad story isn't it ? Felt sorry for the Troll. I read the book eons ago, don't remember much of it.
Always liked the song Grendel by Marillion :)

What a coincidence, I just had a real movie weekend with the following movies:

The Descent: Eeeh, yeah, entertaining enough!
Lucky number Slevin: BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!!! Everybody go see!

And yesterday I saw Brokeback Mountain: Man!! I had some terrible night from that movie, I mean seeing to cowboys "going all the way" isn't quite my cup of tea, but also the amount of emotion in that movie left me breathless... I mean wow, the end I almost felt like I got an emotional breakdown myself!!! Great movie!

The Proposition (dvd) - the Australian outback western with Emily Watson, oh la la, screenplay by Nick Cave. Gorgeous scenery, gritty, violent but not pointlessly so, and old Nick even sneaks a little poetry in there.
Wish I could've seen it on the big screen.

I watched steamboy, it's by the guy who did akira, it was really dissapointing. It started off well but it just ended up being really boring, too much action. I'd give that one a wide birth. The last good film I saw was wolf creek, I really enjoyed that, it's been ages since I'd seen a decent horror film.

I watched UHF the other night. Classic cinema.

Caught Silent Hill for the second time, not too bad but kind of trampled on the story of II, which I hear they're making. I'm hoping they don't fvck that one to hell and beyond.

We watched The Brothers Grimm the other day - I love Terry Gilliam but christ, what a pile of shite. Turned it off after 40 mins.

Saw Volver the other day - good but not as good as the reviews led me to believe...

I really enjoyed it - I even found it a bit scary to begin with! I don't really handle scary films too well - I think I like them then I watch one and am left terrified. The Grudge is the most horrible film for that I have ever seen.

What a weed... :lol:

i hated the grudge, the only good thing was Sarah Michelle Gellar, but she never took her clothes off. so in that respect, it was a horrormovie. some of the effects were cool though!

The Ring, The Grudge, those Japanese horror stories are scary as hell ! Esp. the Ring, Jesus !!
I also saw the low budget Japanese versions, those are even scarier !
