Going to watch Monty Python's The Meaning of Life later today. :)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

What didn't you like, Divia? I have it on my Netflix list, but I keep bumping it down because I'm wary of trying it.

I loved "Sherlock Holmes", and look forward to the sequel in a few years. But that's just me.

It took too long to get into the story and by the time it did I was half asleep. Also the characters were talking quickly about things I didnt know or understand. Maybe if I knew something about the books I may understand it more.

Also I just couldnt believe that Holmes was able to spot every small detail and knew everything about everyone.

I have Sherlock Holmes on my netflix list, too, but it has a long wait.

I saw Coco Before Chanel this weekend, which I loved - Audrey Tatou is magnificent and the film is emotional without being maudlin; wonderful fashion from the turn of the century, too. Alessandro Nivola, playing Chanel's lover "Boy" Capel, isn't too bad to look at, either :)

I recently watched the Blind Side with Sandra Bullock. I really liked it, although it didn't make me cry as my friends said I would :cool: :rolleyes: :p

And of course I had to go watch Iron Man 2 - I loved it! :D :D :D

I finally wound up watching the series Life on Mars, which I found pretty good. I need to get my hands on the British series. I have to say that seeing Jason O'Mara handcuffed naked to a bed was rather toothsome.
