Gomorra ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0929425/ ) - pretty good

im a movie buff

I watched Paul, the film done by the same people who put together Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead. Can honestly say I was disappointed. The trailer lead it up to be so much funnier than it was :/

agreed. Paul was a huge let down, more of a nothing else to watch kinda film.

We had a double feature of Rec 2 and Paranormal Activity 2 the other night. A nice romantic night in Now it's a toss-up between Red and The Losers for tonight.

Paul's an excellent film if you watch it at midnight with a stomach full of rum and Pimm's. That's the only time I've ever seen it.

Scarface.

did you find rec 2 has disappointing as i did? the first rec was an amazing zombie film but then they had to ruin it with that silly plot twist. if you liked paranormal activity you may want to check out tokyo night ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1728179/ ) the publishing company sold the rights to a japanese film company to make their own sequel to paranormal activity, its not too bad.

last night we watched pans labyrinth (very good spanish film)

tonight we are trying The Rite hope its good, any other good films out there?

also paul was a bit of a let down but we still enjoyed it..

I quite enjoyed Rec 2 actually. I sort of forgave them for the plot twist they took because it was damn entertaining. I knew they couldn't replicate what they did with the first one, and thought they made the most out of it. But I'm a sucker for trashy horror films, so I'm kind of biased

Shark tale, it was on the other day and a friends child was round.

I watched Salt last night too. Didn't really pay much attention to the speaking/plot, just the explosions. I'm easily distracted when watching a film.

I think it was Office Space. I watched it a couple of weeks ago.

LOVE that film!

A friend of mine has been lending me a lot of new films recently, mainly rom com and similar. Rom com's aren't films I normally watch unless with friends or ill, so think she's trying to get me into them more.

Anyway I watched:

Going The Distance, I didn't think Drew Barrymore's acting was as good as other films I've seen her in. Though I did lioke how it didn't have the standard hollywood fairytale ending.

The Ramen Girl, I liked how the Japanese actors (most of them) actually were Japanese. Basically it's about an american girl who goes to Japan to live with her boyfriend who then leaves her. She decides to learn how to make Ramen, there are parts of Japanese culture, long hours at work, and drinking...

Orange County, About a boy who wants to become a writer. he applies to standford and it just messes up from there. Jack black plays a good slacker role as always, and the misfit family seems so unreal you can only relate to them.

Holes, now I read this as a book when younger and really enjoyed it. The disney version didn't let me down, even though it wasn't prefer the charcters were very similar to how I pictured them in the book.

Southland Tales, as rather trippy film which is expected as it's from the same writer and director as Donnie Darko. It has time travel, pornstars, unreal drugs, war, gangs. Even though it's a rather slow pass film I enjoyed it though I will need to watch it again with maybe some booze to get a better understanding of this film.

Tangled, I really liked this. When I heard it was coming out I thought Disney were going to mess it up but it seemed to have worked.

Marie Antoinette, slow... the characters even though beautifully dressed hardly said anything, badly cut in places, soundtrack didn't relate to the era, pretty shoes though.

The Princess and the Frog, Again Disney shocked me. This reminds me of their old classics, and I really enjoyed it, espically the dark vodoo elements.

Also just finished watching Tenjho Tenge which is an anime series and not a movie. Really enjoyed 5this series but the ending didn't feel complete, which often means there hasn't been enough manga produces, or they run out of money, or they are working on a series two.... only time will tell. But it has motivated me to become stronger as a fighter.

I haven't watched Paul recently but I actually really enjoyed it when I saw it. Though I got a lot of the comic book jokes which a lot of my friends didn't understand, my fault really for being a geek.

That's a few I've watched recently, certain there was more.
