Watched a movie called 21 last night about a group of MIT students who use they're maths skills to count cards in vegas, decent film.

I watched more of 'The Good Wife'(season 3) and 'The Big C'(season 2). Both better episodes from their current seasons.

I then started watching 'Romanzo Criminale'. It was shown on Sky Arts. An Italian drama about the Mafia. Pretty decent stuff. I have about 8 more episodes to watch of it.

I just looked it up on IMDB, and apparently there was a film version as well. I haven't seen that, or read the book on which it is based.

Just watched the latest Walking Dead episode from the US.

Not bad, more zombies, glad they're away from that farm as that was boring. Only 3 episodes left this season so i'm sure it'll end with a bang.

Recently joined Love Film and Mrs Tachi added "2 and a Half Men Season 1".
Got the first disk yesterday and watched it...
How the hell did that show become so successful, it's bloody awful!
Suffice as to say we cancelled the order of the rest of the series lol

They've been showing the Dirty Harry films on one of the ITV channels this week; one per night so far, so I'm assuming that Sudden Impact will be on tonight.

I've seen the first two countless times but never the other three. Missed most of the Enforcer last night but will make sure to watch the remaing two this week. Decent films, especialy if you're a fan of Eastwood.

We picked that up a couple of weeks ago for £1.50 as O/H fancies watching it, might give it a watch myself now.

Just watched Melancholia...what a pile of crap...
Nice to see Kirsten Dunst's (ahem..) talents but it was just so damned dull.

I found it far too predictable to be enjoyable.
From 5 minutes in you knew exactly what was going to happen regarding him, his son, the woman and the robot.
Paint by numbers movie if ever there was one.
The robots were cool though but I'll take Arena and Robot Jox over this any day.

Red Cliff. What an outstanding piece as epic war films got even better. Based on the novel Romance of the Three Kingdom, it was delivered with such unique approach and I enjoyed every moment of it. Incredible battle sequences that got very bloody, arrows flying everywhere, and the set pieces was really clever. Plus it's good to see John Woo bringing back his trademarks for this one.

Need to watch the second part for the conclusion.

I've had that for about 2 years and managed about 15 minutes of it, I need to be in the mood for a subtitled film, especially one clocking in at 5 hours :shock:

Watching "The Almighty Johnstons" the now on ScyFy - quite entertaining. Young man from New Zealand discovers he (and his family) are reincarnations of Norse Gods but they don't have that many of their powers - a few enough to make life a bit easier, or one of them who doesn't want to use his powers as it would be cheating.

I'm quite enjoying that show & it makes a change having New Zealand accents rather than American.
