Thats the one with the young girl out of Kick Ass in it, right? Shes a great young actress. Kick Ass is a kick ass film btw, I laughed out loud alot when watching it.
Chloë Moretz was the actress you are on about. I have seen Kick Ass as well and it was a great film. I especially like the 'Banana Splits' sequence in that.

I have seen the original 'Let the Right One In' and thought that was a very good film. Very different from a lot of vampire films that you see. I haven't seen the US remake.

Anyway, last night I started on season 4 of 'Sons of Anarchy'. I thought that season 3 and the 'Irish' storyline was a bit disappointing. I am only about 3 episodes into the new season. The 'drugs' storyline seems okay, but so far I have yet to be excited by this season.

Last night we watched The Fields. Keyed to be a creepy film with unusual happenings on a farm...absolute censored sadly.
Also watched Darkest Hour which we really enjoyed for all it's exploding alien shennanigans :)

Fair play for watching ten hours of something you didn't like!
Had to know what all the fuss was about. Kept expecting it to get better as well.

Did you not read the books as a kid?

As fantasy films go, there's few (if any) that match its scope or production values.

Caught up with a couple of episodes of The Big C today, just in time for the finale this week.

Now just need to catch-up with The Good Wife and Homeland.

Watched Extradionary Adventures of Adele Blanc sec, the first film I bought in years(only because Luc Besson done it) very dry but for some reason I found it incredibly funny

Watched 21 Jump Street at the cinema last night. Funniest film of the year - by far. (probably the past 2 years). Absolutely brilliant :D

Watched Wrath of the Titans recently. It's ok I suppose but it's all been done before.

I thought it was very good. Apparently, it hasn't been tampered with, and 'Americanized' like so many Euro-US remakes. But, I can't say for sure, as I haven't seen the original.

I did start to watch Green Lantern a few days ago, and found it quite good what I saw so far. Will be watching the rest soon.

I watched more of 'Sons of Anarchy'(season 4). Another 3 episodes. It is okay, but still lacking the zest of the first 2 seasons.

Just watched Event Horizon on Sky. I was quite impressed, good effects, decent enough story, fair few scares, yeah, I was entertained. 1997 I think, God that was 15 years ago yet it seems like yesterday. Man im starting to feel old.

Been gradually rewatching Nathan Barley on 4oD for the first time since it was originally broadcast, cannot believe it's over 7 years ago now(!!!)

I never found it particularly hilarious, even when I first saw it eons back, but there's something I really like about it and it's still pretty relevant.

Also watched The Apprentice, which was OK but a little boring tonight, and caught ten minutes of Junior Masterchef Australia earlier, was pretty weird how they were getting the kids to eat animal brains, obviously more for the yuck factor rather than because they actually HAD to - very exploitative in a truly odd way.

PS: I've never tried brains and don't particularly want to but I know they're a legit and acceptable foodstuff and I have no qualms about folk eating them, it's just that kids tend *not* to eat stuff like that and the only reason they were eating said stuff was because grown adults coerced them into doing it. On telly. Bit sinister-paedoabuserish, that, at least I thought, though maybe I'm mental???

Sorry, tangential ramble over. :oops:

Watched Ironclad on Blu-ray, pretty violent medieval film with some decent actors in it, worth a watch.
