Just finished watching The Benchwarmers, was good, typical Rob Schneider type thing but I liked it, especially Lon Lovitz, driving around in his original KITT and original Batmobile.

Also saw World Trade Centre yesterday, loved it. not one for the criers though, was hardly a dry eye in the house when I looked around at the end.

I watched House of 1000 Corpses and The Devils Rejects over the weekend, I was a little disapointed as I thought they were a little tame.

I thought Devils Rejects was very good, House of 1000 corpses wasnt great.

Havent seen many good films lately, Jackass II was quite funny actually with some good bits

X men 3 still as good as i remember it being in the cinema

Casino & Goodefellas - Been in a gangster mood this week and they don't come any better than these two, well apart from Godfather Part 2.

Watched a great film recently, Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky. Completely OTT martial arts-style film from Korea with insane amounts of comedy gore and violence, all dubbed over with dodgy voice actors. Also includes a Warden who can turn into an Incredible Hulk lookalike.

Half the reason it's funny is the storyline seems so serious, you don't know if they're actually taking the p!ss or not.

Cracking stuff.

Pi? Good film, if perplexing. Ong Bak rules, the next Jackie Chan definately.

Just watched Eyes Wide Shut - Utter Bollox would be a better name.

Finished watching Summer of Sam aswell and have changed my mind about it. I thought it was quite good in the end.
