^ really enjoyed this too, the humour was great and came in unexpected places, I don't remember the book being that funny. The part when the boy was discovering the religions was hilarious, ending with 'I would like to be baptised!" The only let down I think is that when the boy was telling the alternative story at the end, it would have been better if that part was acted out instead of leaving us to imagine it, that's kinda an important part.

 

Really well made though.

Apophis, Django Unchained is one of the movies I am looking forward to this coming year as well, Insha'Allah, along with the Star Trek sequel and World War Z.

Anyone watched Baytown Outlaws?

 

This seems quite a bit like Smoking Aces, doesn't it? I've ordered it off Amazon! :D

I actually saw part of that film being made (the submarine scenes) in Longcross Studios in Chobham, Surrey. Kinda killed the magic after that.

 

I also saw Jack the giant slayer being made. Seeing that, definitely killed the magic as now I'll be thinking: yap, that's not a real tree :D.

Nothing worth seeing here. A lot of over hyped mumble jumble and the overzealous attempt to give meaning to junk.

You should read the Book... Tis' was a beautiful film. Though it could never compete with the book

but Ang Lee’s adaption was pretty brilliant I have to say.

 

Ps. The Hobbit, Unexpected POINTLESS and USELESS Journey lol

Love it, love it. I knew the book was genius and I was so glad the movie did it justice. Man was it beautiful and that relationship with the tiger ...left me speechless.

Apo, what were you doing in Chobham? I never knew they had studios there. Are members of the public allowed to go visit?

Django, what a film! I have not seen that much ore since Saving Private Ryan, and it was perfect. A classic.

 

Les Miserables: expect to be emotionally punched with a wrecking ball. 5/5

It was a summer job and I didn't know there was anything, let alone a studio there. I don't think they allow public visits but if you really want to go there's one of those "experience days" companies which let you drive some sort of sports car, high speed in an unused runway (the place used to be a major RAF airbase, with a huge runway). After you get in, you can just wonder the area, no one will ask you anything (plus you can get free food from the mobile caffeterias if you feel peckish) Did you get that? writing it confused me :D

The Perks of Being a Wallflower - not your average movie but an amazing one nonetheless.

To kill a mocking bird (the black & white version) - simply amazing. I remember watching it in History a couple of years ago and I loved it.

 

That's all I can think of for now.
