The Doors

Watched The Doors last night for the first time, on the MacBook Pro with the screen mirrored to a 32″ flat screen TV. Unfortunately I could only connect via PC …

Blood Diamond

Watched Blood Diamond last night. It must of been good as dispite still felling ill I managed to stay focussed on it for the whole 140 minutes, which is rare …

Music & Lyrics

All Sands wanted to do last night when I got back was chill out and watch a movie so it seemed fair to let her choose which one. I forgot …

Hot Fuzz

I finally got round to watching Hot Fuzz while I was away this time – on the MBP in the hotel room, which was pretty cool. The MBP was certainly …

The Pursuit of Happyness

Wow what an amazing film! Based on a true story never can one person have had so much bad luck, yet stay so positive. Well acted, with a well told …

A Good Year

Have to admit this was a pleasant enough film considering it had Russel Crowe in it, was based in France and was such a cliche it wasn’t even funny! I …

3:10 To Yuma & The Game Plan

A couple of plane movies that turned out much better than I expected. I picked the 3:10 To Yuma as I hadn’t seen a western for a long time, and …

The Bourne Ultimatum

Finally got round to watching The Bourne Ultimatum – I told you I wasn’t a avid movie watcher! – and without doubt it as good a Trilogy as you could …

The Prestige

The Prestige is one of the best films I have ever seen, made all the better for the fact that I wasn’t really that bothered about it when Sands said …

Children of Men

Weird, would be the simplest way to describe Children of Men. Had never heard of it, and have no idea why we recorded it, but it was pretty powerful and …

The Departed

I had intended to watch The Departed a long time ago but somehow or other always seemed to miss it. Anyway we had a couple of hours to kill in …

Mission Impossible III

Not a big fan of Tom Cruise, although sort of liked Jerry McGuire for a bit, but have to say that as escapist action movies the MI series have been …

The Devil Wears Prada

A perfect film for the end of Boxing day as it requires no brain power at all and a large amount of wine! The Devil Wears Prada is actually not …

Syriana and The Holiday

Have only watched a couple of movies so far this Christmas, Syriana and The Holiday. I enjoyed Syriana a lot, but found it too hard to follow to say it …

The Sentinel

Just watched The Sentinel and really wish I hadn’t bothered! I am not really surprised that I didn’t like it as I really find Michael Douglas irratating, but the film …

Chaos

I really enjoyed Chaos. I thought it was well acted and had a pretty good story line with an interesting twist at the end. It wasn’t that great watching it …

Oceans 13

A couple of the guys that I was with in Dubai really rated Oceans 13, but they also really rated Oceans 12 which I hated, so I wasn’t really that …

Live Free or Die Hard

Only had time to watch one movie on the flght over to Dubai so went with Live Free or Die Hard or Die Hard 4.0 as I think it is …

Thank You For Smoking

I have to admit that I had very little interest in Thank You For Smoking as I thought it would be just another poor attempt at a comedy movie by …

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

We watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s last night at the end of Sands Birthday. Having now completed the transfer from DVD’s we thought we should start watching some, but this was …

United 93

Have just watched the movie United 93 which was somewhat strange given the events yesterday in London and today in Glasgow. I really am not sure what I felt about …
