Here are the films that Pete and I have received from Lovefilm.com and watched on TV and DVD over the past few months in reverse order, with my ratings out of ten from my movie list on the IMDB.
The Castle (1997) 8
Funny Australian film. I think that most Aussies and Brits would find it funny. I get the feeling that Americans would be wondering why we were laughing.
True Grit (2010) 8
Some great acting and a classic story.
The Fighter (2010) 7
Disappointing - just another sports film with an obvious ending. I am really beginning to dislike Christain Bales as he seems to be overacting all of the time.
Get Low (2009) 8
A strange film about a man who wants to plan his own funeral. Simple but effective.
Paul (2011) 7
Recommended by my friends 15 year old son and I laughed all the way through - though it missed opportunities to be even funnier.
Tetro (2009) 8
Atmospheric and gripping. My full review is here.
Vamp (1986) 2
Terribly dated vampire film.
Howl (2010) 7
All about the life of Allen Ginsberg - I loved the animation sequences.
Black Swan (2010) 7
Not as good as I had hoped, but still a very good movie.
The Way Back (2010) 7
Based on a true story - a good adventure, with dodgy accents.
Chatroom (2010) 6
Original, but didn't quite work. Aaron Johnson is cute and Matthew Beard is an amazing actor.
To Catch a Thief (1955) 6
Classic Hitchcock - and it was good see Nice and district.
Love and Other Drugs (2010) 1
Absolute shit story and crap acting and synical in its attempt to use serious illness as entertainment.
Kung Fu Panda (2008) 8
Very funny, wonderful animations - fun for all the family etc!
The Tourist (2010) 6
So obvious, so many errors, so bad it's watchable.
Passenger Side (2009) 7
Now this is how to make an improvised film. Witty road trip.
