I've got that on my 'to watch' list at Love Film. Looks compelling but I expect it might be a bit weird as you say.

I've just watched kid's film G Force and found it quite fun.

Spent a hot afternoon yesterday watching Toy Story I and II, and will probably watch TS III today. No matter how old those films are, they feel as fun and fresh as if they just came out!

Oh, I did that a couple of months ago. I totally agree! I had Toy Story 3 as a Christmas present - for me - never mind any kids! :D

Rise of the Planet of the Apes -- a good addition to the series. A couple of plot holes, but fun action and great CGI.

I watched The Death & Life of Charlie St Cloud last night - I quite enjoyed, although it didn't have the impact on me that the book did which I thought was excellent.

Ya had to interpret a lot of it. Frankly thats too much energy for me. I just like to sit back and watch stuff. And sometimes you didnt know if it was real or not.

And Daniel Craig looks really hot in it, but I'll probably catch it on DVD.

Last night "The Three Muskateers" from 1993, Tim Curry and Oliver Platt are so flamboyant in it, it's great :D
