My Neighbour Totoro
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!
- "Into Battle"

We saw the animated Arthur Christmas this past Saturday and absolutely loved it. Hugh Laurie, James McAvoy, Jim Broadbent, Ashley S Jensen and Bill Nighy are the voices for the main characters and their personalities provide a perfect blend with the animated artistry. I laughed so much! The movie is such a clever take on the Santa tradition as it brings three generations of Santas into the thoroughly modern technological era.

Just seen the first trailer for The Hobbit - on IMDB - and although I had some misgivings - still not sure about a couple of castings - it looks awesome, and perhaps inevitably, quite familiar too. Still not sure if spreading it over 2 films is a good idea though.

Northern Lights. Pleasantly surprised by the fact that Leann Rimes actually can act.

Personally speaking, I can't wait!

Just watched it with Harm, we'll probably be seeing it in the theatre. At least once a year or 2, we watch all the extended versions of "Lord of the Rings" movies, over a period of a week or so.

Excellent movie! I enjoy movies that take a look at something totally different. And I agree it was a great performance.

Mozart's Sister. A big disappointment. All of the characters were flat emotionally. Saw very little spark in the sister, nothing to make me see her as a vibrant young woman. Beautifully filmed, but that didn't make up for very slow pacing and lack of emotion. And the captions against the snowy background really did not help.

Disney's A Christmas Carol. Different. Not sure that it's a good different. I can appreciate the talent that went into it, but I don't think it like it.

Love's Enduring Promise and Love's Long Journey. Ok.
