Movie update

These are the films that we have received from Lovefilm.com and also watched on TV recently - with my ratings out of ten from my movie list on IMDB :

Eragon 6
OK, Ed Speleers cant act, but looks nice... it's a fantasy film that was obviously designed for a sequel.

Pretty in Pink 4
Oh dear - I wish I had missed this "classic" piece of 80's rubbish.

Waltz With Bashir 8
A stunning animation with disturbing content.

Bright Young Things 7

Hackers 5
It's meant to be a computer classic that hasn't dated - but it has dated badly and the acting was awful.

Heathers 6
It's strange when you revisit a film you enjoyed many years ago... and wish you hadn't.

Shelter 7
A pretty good gay themed film featuring some cute surfers.

The Royal Tenenbaums 8
An off the wall story about a New York family - not as obvious as it first appears.

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou 6
From the maker of the Royal Tenebaums, this is a really bizarre film and I cant decide whether it was crap or wacky?!

Run Fatboy Run 7
Funny film with Simon Pegg - a few good laughs.

No Country for Old Men 7
A good thriller with a storyline that kept you on the edge of your seat - but it was a little too long for me.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull 4
So disappointing and so annoyingly childish in places. Avoid this terrible film.

The Constant Gardener 7

Lucky Number Slevin 8
I really enjoyed this film and also watching Josh Harnett in a towel for most of the film!

The Good Shepherd 7

Rushmore 6
An usual movie, from the same people that made the excellent films: 'The Darjeeling Limited' and 'The Royal Tenenbaums'

  1. I hate Lovefilm, they always go missing.

  2. Had about 60 discs so far with no problems - pretty impressed with the turnaround time too.

  3. The last Indiana Jones was really bad. I loved the first movie all those years ago, but the crystal skull was SO SO SO shit.

  4. I was stunned at how emotional Waltz With Bashir made me feel. Great film.
