    I think Sorkin displayed the adrenaline pumping micro drama of a newsroom in episode one and went all out with comic interaction between all the characters in episode two. I liked both very much and am predicting a more subtle mixture of the two extremes for the rest of the series.
    So what did you think of episode three?
    I'd say your prediction turned out to be accurate for this episode, it was certainly much stronger than number two.

    Watched The Adventures of Tintin last night. It's fantastic. I absolutely loved it and some of the set pieces were fantastic. Really Indiana Jones type film, not surprisingly.
    Did you not find it just that little bit predictable? :erm: . It was less Indiana Jones and more Scooby Doo in my eyes :lol:

    I genuinely loved it. I know it was aimed at kids more than adults, but so what?

    Yeah it's gone pretty much as I'd hoped. The only problem I'm having at the moment is Emily Mortimer's acting which is quite surprising. Everything she does seems a bit forced and OTT compared to the rest of the cast. Hopefully she calms down a bit but it's certainly not dissuading me from watching the show!

    I think her character's a bit, well, ridiculous but yeah I'm actually really looking forward to next week now!

    Naah, I got nothing against films aimed at kids, I love them! But I found Tintin a bit underwhelming. The animation quality was fantastic however :yep: . And it was Tintin after all

    Just saw Spiderman.

    Hmmm. It was good. I enjoyed it. I just felt it lacked a little something. I think perhaps the villain wasn't that great.

    I was also convinced for a little while that:

    The police chief would be the next Green Goblin. He just had that kinda look..

    Attempted to watch Haywire tonight but it just wasn't happening. Turned it off 15 minutes in.
    I'm surprised you endured Lockout but couldn't get through Haywire.

    Wrath of the Titans is crap.
    Do you want to break the news to Dalek1099 or should I?

    The Dark Knight Rises is getting gushing reviews and early impressions. Embargo will probably lift in a few days. All aboard the hype train that departs in 9 days. :woo:

    Yeah, Lockout was pretty bad. I usually like movies like Lockout and Haywire which is why I persisted with Lockout, when I was watching Haywire I just wasn't feeling it

    Haha why, does he love it?

    I've finally seen the Swedish version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which was fantastic.
    I preferred Fincher's version slightly more; I found it more girtty, slicker, and maybe because it didn't have as 'happy' an ending... It might just be because I saw it first though.
    Looking forward to seeing the sequels for both versions.

    Anyone seen the whole trilogy?

    I would say Fincher's ending is happier, considering that

    Hello, I'm new here

    Saw 'Submarine' the other day, thought it was really excellent! I was really looking forward to seeing it last year but never got to because they screen hardly anything left-field where I live. I only got round to borrowing the DVD recently!

    I'll probably see the new Batman soon. There talking about it in the same breath as Oscar nominations, but surely that's just CRAZY hype??
    I'm still skeptical of hyped-up superhero films since my friend saw Fantastic Four back in primary school and told me it was "the best film she'd ever seen". Safe to say I was pretty disappointed...
