Alien Vs Ninja. Really fun film with some brilliantly choreographed fights :)

Seems to have poor reviews but i love scifi/alien films and im ok with a bit of mediocrity.
Hoping to see it this weekend. Either that or Lockout. Lockout, good script. Battleship, SPECIAL EFFECTS. So, I think it will be Battleship. I'll let you know if you can wait.

Yes, BBC Drama (tm). Not what it was these days. All written by nepotic post-grads in touch with da peeple. It's the Wurther's Originals version of the 70's.

Just finished watching 10 Things I hate About You.

Haven't seen it for years and still enjoyed it.

40 episodes later and I'm still going, it's just utter, utter genius! The parody on high school musical, awesome-o, cartmanland, the release of the Sony PSP and many, many more.
They are some good episodes you've seen there. I'd forgotten about the PSP one.

Have you seen the 'Family Guy' episode?

Walking Dead.

Im overly cautious getting into tv series as they either get cancelled due to lack of comprehension or move to Sky where I cannot and will not watch them.

Oddly I saw the last 2 episodes first and enjoyed them,now watching re-runs and i'm 3 episodes in. May have to invest in the dvd set as the multitudinous ad breaks are very annoying.

I watched 'We Need To Talk About Kevin' on dvd, that was an interesting film, not one I would watch it again.

Another one 'The Final Destination 5', I had held off watching this one for a while and am glad I did I'm usually fan of the series, but I think it should come to an end as I fell it's run it's course. Might have been different in 3D on the big screen, the story was poor and the characters was not very likeable.

On the big screen I watched 'Shaun Of The Dead' with the Flash back Odeon are offering on a Monday evenings, was brilliant to finally to get to watch it on the big screen. I had missed the first time, very funny and very timeless.

And finally couldn't sleep Saturday night, ended up watching 'Walk The Line' on TV (I own the DVD don't know why I do this often), just love the story of Johnny Cash and Joaquin Phoenix is brilliant and then I sat and watched 'Romeo and Juliet' the one with Leo DiCaprio, admittedly I had to put the subtitles on, still think this is a brilliant way of showing a classic Shakespear and also think the same of 'Ten Things I Hate About You', really good way of conveying the story over.

I think the first season has been shown on FiveUSA. The second season on FX. I assume that FiveUSA are going to get the rights to the second season, but who knows for sure.

Hehehhehehe. An interesting critique of the program, anyway, I finished it off last night. Hmmm, the BBC have produced better dramas. I then watched some more 'True Blood(season 4)'.

Started to watch Sucker Punch earlier, but turned it off after 45 minutes. Biggest pile of censored I've ever seen. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I've just finished watching Thor, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Bring on The Avengers and Thor 2 I say.

I've never found any of the characters likeable.

Shaun Of The Dead is such a funny film, a firm favourite of mine - wish I'd seen it at the cinema though.

It's a brilliant film, often overlooked by many. There's a real sense of feeling and humanity, not to mention some really good music (if you're into that sort of music, that is) - haven't seen it in a while, didn't realise it was on TV recently, otherwise I'd have watched it again.

Aye, watched it on Film4. I love the song at the end, keep meaning to pick up the soundtrack but never get round to it. Might pop into That's Entertainment in the next couple of days and see if they have it on the cheap.
