I saw S.d. Millionaire today! It was fantastic. It was one of those 'different' films. It was emotional and very tensional at times. It was action packed without 'randomly' throwing explosions and blood into it. And the cross-cutting between the past and present kept it going and kept the audience in suspense. It was very, very good!
I was sure t was! When they were children it looked animated. I suppose I thought I was being clever- noticing what noone else had I thought it was like Beowulf or The Polar Express... Just VERY good graphics. Silly me!
I finally got round to watching In Bruges last night.
For me, it was one of those movies that you really wanna watch because there's someone you like in it, but you never got round to it because you think it's not really the kind of film you'd enjoy.....
Anyway, I was indulging my lust for Colin Farrell ( as Becki refused to go out and fetch him for me! ), and In Bruges was about the only film left of his that I haven't seen!
OMG I was SO wrong about that film! It is one of the best movies I've ever watched! It's hilariously funny, but tragically sad at the same time. Colin is just awesome in it, and also Brendan Gleeson, another Irish actor I adore. ( he's been in loads of wicked movies - Braveheart, 28 Days Later, Gangs of New York etc ).
I can't reccomend this film enough - it's gone into my top 10 overnight, lol. ;D
I just watched 'Millions' on BBC iPlayer! I've still got the link www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00bwslq/b00bwskk/Millions/ I read the book for a competition a few years ago, and always wanted to watch it. And then I came across it an hour and a half ago. It's been directed really well and it's a very nice film. Quite funny too. It's one of those good British films. I quite loved it. I reccomend it!

oh God yeah Liz, I watched 'In Bruges' just because I was bored and there was nothing else on - it was sososo good! I've never seen tragedy and comedy mixed so well... it lures you into a false sense of humourous security before the ending, so you're just like I was shaking for about an hour after watching it!
Has anyone seen 'Requiem for a Dream?' it's one of my favourite films, although you can only watch it on a sunny day, early on, and then go out with your friends afterwards (it's THAT bleak and depressing...)
