It's been a month of strange movies and not by design...
Carnage (2011) 2
Appalling. *Spoiler alert* It's about two couples arguing over a fight their kids have. One couple goes to leave, but stays, they argue some more, they go to leave again but don't, argue some more... repeat.
Shrek (2001) 8*
Classic film that still makes me laugh.
Like Crazy (2011) 7
A British student falls in love with her American boyfriend and stupidly outstays her visa. A love story which does make you think about relationships, especially long distance ones.
A Summer Day (2006) 6
French film about a teenager that dies during a football match and the effect it has on the community. Not many laughs!
Louise-Michel (2008) 4
A frustrating black comedy about a group of employees who try to kill their ex box after being laid off. Funny in places, but there were far too many unfunny parts.
Born in 68 (2008) 6
One weird and loooong film about a hippy commune over several generations. Best bit is the gay bit at the end with the very cute Theo Frilet. The movie overall doesn't work and there is way too much filler – could have been 45 minutes shorter!
Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011) 6
Another strange movie about a girl escaping from a cult. Could have been good, but was lacking a compelling story.
The Muppets (2011) 8
Both Pete and I grinned all of the way through. Easy 8.5 here with nostalgia aplenty and plenty of wonderful one liners.
The Kids Are All Right (2010) 7
A boy and a girl each have a different mother, and those mothers are lovers. The kids want to know who their sperm donating father was. Black comedy with some funny moments.
