The bit of the forum where you can be the director, producer, and critic of anything that is movie related in a Discworldly sort of way.

I had hight hopes for this, as it has been lauded by just about every theatre critic in London, and boy! Did they undersell it!

Without a doubt the funniest thing I have seen for years
I am in pain today all down the side of my ribs from roaring with laughter
It was superbly written, with lots room for ad libs and improvisation from the cast, with subtle digs at the recent riots, politicians, 'celebrities' - in fact, just what commedia dell'arte should be

I probably missed about 1/3 of the jokes about celebrities, Julia missed about 1/3 of the ones about Moliere and commedia dell'arte, so, a bit like Terry book, everyone goes away feeling good that they spotted a hidden reference or pun and every comment I heard was 'must go and see this again' or 'must bring so-and-so to see this'

We are going to see this when it transfers to the West End in November. Cant wait.

We're going to go again when it comes back to the West End for a run in November

Bloody marvellous!


We are going to see this in November, when it transfers to the West End. Cant wait. Everyone I know who has seen it has loved it.

Captain America: The First Avenger . I thought it was great fun and a nice rounding off of the series from Marvel.
I am looking forward to the avengers movie which, I understand has Joss Whedon attached?
I must say in the Marvel/DC rivalry Marvel appear to be winning the movie battle hands down, recommended.

Yeah, it wasn't bad. Michelle Pfeiffer was just a stunner!

Just watched On Demand (here in the States) Dale and Tucker VS Evil! AWESOME! This will be out in the movies at the end of September. I rank it with Shawn of the Dead! Great parody.

I watched Planet of the Apes which I thought was good slow to start but worth the wait, especially as I had been in Muir Woods the day before now that was a surprise as part of it was filmed there, and the ending was well done. :thumbl: :mrgreen:

We needed some brain chewing gum last night, after a stressful weekend of packing up, so we went to see The Inbetweeners
It was surprisingly un-crap 8-) and
Simon Bird got ll the best lines, as expected, but for the life of me I couldn't place where I'd seen the female lead - until the credits where I saw that it was Laura Haddock, who played Bethan in TCoM

Recently watched Legend of the Fist and Source Code. Legend was good, story was a little slow and there were looong stretches in between action scenes. The action was fantastic! Source Code was good, I enjoyed it, a little bit of a twist and a little bit predictable.

On my flights to and from ZA, saw;
X-Men First Class - aaaaaaargh what utter rubbish! EVERY single background, carefully crafted over the decades, kicked into a quagmire of slush and sentimentality
and
Super-8
Can't put my finger on what was wrong with it - nothing bad, just ultimately unsatisfying

No wonder I slept & read all then rest of the way!

Saw Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy this afternoon.
Brilliant. Beautifully shot, marvellous actors. The pace was similar to the TV series - cerebral not adrenalin.
It is not strictly a thriller, it has the suspense but not the excitement.
Gary Oldman was superb as Smiley. I kept seeing ghosts of Guinness
John le Carré even made an appearance as a Christmas Party guest.
I can imagine that many people will hate it as it does have the action of Bourne or Bond.

Not having the action of Bourne or Bond is a GOOD THING! Really good!

It's got a 15 rating, but I'm considering taking Small with us when we go. How sweary or sexy is it? I'm thinking of me rather than him - 'language' around my child embarrasses me something wicked... :oops:

There is mild swearing. It is set in the 60s. Bit of nudity.
