    Spending the day putting together a presentation which applies the feminist ideologies of Virginia Woolf's 'A Room Of One's Own' to the so bad it's good 1992 sporting comedy 'A League Of Their Own'. :awesome:

    Speaking of so-bad-it's-good films, I'll probably be watching The Room fairly soon. :woo:

    Watched Lost in Translation last night, and thought it was excellent. I'll have to look out for more Sofia Coppola films now. Also, Bill Murray. :sogood:

    Watched Dead Poets Society and Source Code today. Very inspirational films in respect to 'seizing the day' and 'enjoying life'. Both fantastic films, however I thought Source Code could have focused a little bit more on the philosophical aspects of its plot, but otherwise brilliant.

    Would absolutely recommend both if you haven't seen them!

    maybe it's getting a selective area release... I think it did in America too, just to hammer home that's an arthouse stylistic flick

    Warrior is without a doubt up there with the best films I've seen this year, it's absolutely immense. And if it doesn't get some Oscar attention it will be an outrage.

    I watched Dazed and Confused last night. Good fun, easy to see why it's well liked; also easy to see the appeal of its famously tiny budget. Also, lots of actors whose faces I recognized but whose names I couldn't remember (or never knew).

    Is it an Oscary movie, though? I'm very much looking forward to watching it, but it didn't really look to me like something the Academy usually fetes. Unless it's even more like The Fighter than I thought.

    Gritty roles with plenty of character wrapped up in a good old Hollywood blockbuster - the argument could certainly be made for it. Nick Nolte and Tom Hardy were particularly amazing.

    My, Tom Hardy is rapidly becoming a superstar. The thinking man's Jason Statham, if you will.

    I'd be very surprised if I saw a worse film this year than Real Steel. Seriously, don't even consider spending money on it.
