"17 Again", it was ok, but very hard to believe that hottie Zac Efron would grow to look like Matthew Perry, who is not exactly heart stopping.

I watched "The Young Victoria" during the week, and then watched a documentary that I had recorded also about the younger years of Victoria.

Interested in reading more about Victoria now!

Saw two great but very different films about relationships last week: Julie and Julia and The Soloist.

Yesterday's Sunday Popcorn Special was Outlander. It was pretty good for an Aliens Vs Vikings movie. :D

Watched "Casino Royale" again last night, really enjoyed it, much better than "Quantum of Solace".

Then I started to watch, and today finished, the movie version of "Brideshead Revisited". Surprised that they managed to condense the book (and original TV series) so well into a 2 hour movie whilst keeping close to the book and also retaining some of its dialogue. Very impressed; as ever, Castle Howard stole the film from the actors, good as they were!

Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont, on cable. A delightful, bittersweet movie. I think I'm in love with Rupert Friend's character, the young bohemian writer. :-)

Judi Dench can do no wrong, and certainly does none in this movie. Just lovely (btw, have you seen Mrs. Henderson Presents? Another excellent film of hers, more recent)
