Productive evening in, cake baking, laundry, cleaning and a healthy snack as a reward. Pooped now and off to bed!
Everybody’s fine: 8/10. This is a tear jerker of a film, Drew Barrymore at her best. The storyline is very clever and the acting is powerfully believable. Well worth a watch.
Skyfall: 8/10. Best bond yet. The personal intrigue kept me glued and 2 hours flew by. The action scenes and gadgets were slightly more realistic than usual, and Judi and Daniel did a top job- not to mention Javier who was a brilliant baddie.
The boys are back: 9/10. I’m not a huge Clive Owen fan but this film is incredible. I won’t spoil it by going into details but it is fabulous.
Ruby Sparks: 9/10. I cannot recommend this film enough. The chemistry is tangible, and the two leads portray the story beautifully. One of the best films I’ve seen all year.
Seeking a friend for the end of the world: 4/10. I fell asleep for most of this film, but the bits I was awake for we’re not much to write home about. I think the trouble is that Kiera was supposed to be likeable but it utterly selfish and just so hard to like. The concept was clever and a lot of the background story was interesting and frankly quite frightening but not enough to carry a poor film.

Lawless: 8/10. EPIC acting, and the family dynamics really are something else. A tad gruesome, and at times hard to understand the mumbling - but nonetheless a great film. Tom Hardy is boss.
Dark Knight rises: 8/10. Tom Hardy is still boss. I know he didn’t win everyone over with his weird voice box thing- but I loved him. The film was brilliant, a special surprise was the manly Joesph Gordon-Levitt. Plus it’s a batman film- hard to go wrong there.
Chasing liberty: 2/10. I loved this Mandy Moore chick flick as a teen, watching it back now I can’t say that I understand why. The film is beyond awful, the only redeeming feature being an adequate performance from Matthew Goode.
Life as we know it: 5/10. Predictable to a fault. A film in which two awesome parents die and leave their poor orphan child to unlikely candidates. Terrible acting, little to no chemistry between the cast. It does kill time on a rain saturday afternoon though.
Raising Helen: 6/10. A heartwarming film, also featuring the death of two awesome parents who leave their children with an unlikely choice…There are some classic lines and brilliant characters though. Well worth a watch if it pops up on tv.
Precious: 7/10. A harrowing piece of cinema. I mistakenly thought that this was about an over-weight african american girl who gets bullied at school. It is so much more. I cried a lot, I felt like I’d been on a emotional roller coaster to the point that after watching it I felt dizzy. Beautiful, but not for the faint of heart.
