Tropic Thunder and Atonement.

Atonement was riveting!

Not quite sure what I think of TT.

Just watched Vertigo again.

What a fabulous movie - I notice something new in it every time I see it.

The soundtrack is one of the greatest too (notice things like that because my brother is a musician/composer and points stuff out to me).

Saw "Julia and Julie" last night (or is it the other way round?). Enjoyed it, difficult to judge Meryl's performance though as regards Julia, as until the film came out I had no idea who Julia was, we did think that MS was a bit OTT, but perhaps that was what Julia was like, as I say, I don't think she was known over here.

Love Hitchcock, love Herrmann, Vertigo is both at their best. :D


Saw District 9. Gruelling, gruesome and brilliant.

I want to see Dsistrict 9 but a friend who saw it said it lacked too much to discuss, we have slightly different tastes thank goodness.

Someone on another book forum that I'm on kindly posted a YouTube clip of some of the real Julia's shows - and yes, MS is spot on! Right voice (she had a deep voice didn't she?) and mannerisms spot on.

No Reservations. Ok I guess. Didn't really grab me.

I have this on my Lovefilm wishlist - agree re Hugh J!
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

A Kiss at Midnight on Hallmark, a really cute little love story. We're watching Gladiator tonight hopefully if I'm not too tired.
