[quote=""Mello""]Watched “Easy Virtue” a couple of days ago - my, Jessica Biel is quite a stunner and a competent actress too, I thought.[/quote]
I really liked this movie! Very lively, cheeky update of the whole Noel Coward thing. I thought Biel was very impressive - she was a bit plank-like in the only other movie I've seen her in (that magician thing...)

[quote=""Mello""]Also, saw the first half of the latest “Wuthering Heights” on tv last weekend. I have mentally labelled it the “tame version”. Hope the second half ramps up the insanity a bit :eek: [/quote]
Was this the bad-hair Tom Hardy version? I thought it was a right old mess (the adaptation, not the hair).

Great film isn't it? I'm not really a fan of Mike Leigh, but he surpassed himself with this one. Did you have a nice cup of tea afterwards, dear? ;)

Saw Moon with Sam Rockwell the other day. Excellent brainy SF (though the plot was a dead rip-off of David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas).

Watched the director's cut of Donnie Darko last night. Had only ever seen the theatrical version before. How's this for a coincidence? The pivotal date in the film is October 30th.

Missed the second half last night, but I'm not too upset about it. As you said, it was a mess, including the hair :)

This was on TV here the other night too, watched the first 10 mins or so and for some reason found it quite comical, and strangely dated. Think it has to do with TC in a blond wig.... :eek:

we rented GI Joe, The Ugly Truth and Ice Age Dawn of the Dinos. Let you know how they are after we watch them, I'm crossin my fingers on the GI Joe it has mixed reviews. I love all of the Ice Age movies so this will be no different and well Butler in The Ugly Truth need I say more?
