"Dark Shadows" on Sat. We enjoyed it a lot, my mom loved it, she was big fan of the original, and even named her first daughter, my sister, Angelique (which I always thought was appropriate when I was a kid! :D ).

Iron Man, Iron Man 2
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!

Not a film but TV -- Harlots, Housewives and Heroines: A Girls' Guide to the 17th century by Lucy Worsley, BBC4. Great fun and delivered by a real enthusiast.

London: A Tale of Two Cities also BBC4 also shaping up well.

We watched "The Iron Lady" over the weekend. I love Meryl Streep and I thought she did an amazing job. However, I was a bit disappointed that I didn't see more of the "Iron Lady" but rather the poor, senile, confused, woman. I know it worked for some people, but I was a bit sad for her. After all of the things she did for her country, that is now how I would want to be remembered.

Watched "Dead Again" today for the first time since the 90s - a good movie, fun noir if there can be such a thing. Nicely made, and of course there are some great in-jokes and games with British-actor casting and so on.
