    Hm, quite a few haven't seen too many that were out, live in Switzerland but not at uni anymore so it's hard to find people to go cinema with (too expensive here to go on your own imo). Really wanna see Star Trek and White House Down - my brother really recommended this, Kick Ass 2, The East - love Ellen Page - and Red 2).

    Might be a few that I can't think of but those are on my mind at the moment.
    Nice. I'm trying to watch quite a lot off this list.

    Just watched Mud. Haven't seen any of Nichols' previous work, so decided to give this a shot based solely on the positive word of mouth and glad I did. Easily one of the year's best.

    Really sad I missed my chance at seeing Star Trek before coming back to the UK. No longer in cinemas here but it is back in Amsterdam.

    He has only really aged a bit in the last 2 years. What a great man.

    No Hans Zimmer + Howard Shore + Craig Armstrong = Disappointing.



    Anyway I've been attempting to watch Princess Mononoke, first time watching this genre and just can't get into it. It's just too weird. Don't know if I can be bothered to give it another try.

    Saw The East at The Electric Cinema in London on the 4th just gone. It was very very good. Brit Marling especially so. Ellen Page was good as always.

    Yea? That girl is so talented and she is really, really down to Earth. Although I think that's the new Hollywood, a lot of young actresses seem extremely decent people (Lawrence, Stone) who I love to watch their interviews on youtube. But yes Page chooses what movies she does carefully, in one interview she said she rejects some films because she wants to focus on what interests her.

    Absolutely love the new generation of actresses. Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, Brit Marling, Emma Stone - all so down to Earth and talented as ****!

    I would add to that list Saoirse Ronan. She was great in The Lovely Bones and I totally loved Hanna

    Just watched Percy Jackson SOM, and it was much better than the first. Well, imo...maybe it's because of my raging crush on Logan Lerman. He's definitely grown since the last one. It might be the Charlie in him that's awesome lol.

    If you can't get into Princess Mononoke, then I wouldn't bother with the rest. PM is my favourite Anime.

    I have, but I was disappointed. In fact I left before the end as I was so bored. Just seemed like a load of incoherent, drug induced rambling to me. Couldn't see the point at all.

    I like some of his other films (Down Terrace was excellent), but he's a terribly patchy director.
    Ah, interesting! My evaluation of it was more positive - I didn't think it was great, with the main gripe being that a lot of the avant garde elements of it seemed pretty amateurish rather than intellectual, but I did think it was well-directed in terms of the steady creation of an atmosphere. I said that I thought it was a bit similar to Berberian Sound Studio - I thought that it had the same sort of theme of the surrealist deconstruction of a quite pronouncedly British psyche, and I really quite enjoyed that; but again, while the abstractedness of Berberian Sound Studio all seems quite well thought-out and planned, there were parts of A Field in England that seemed just a bit too throwaway - perhaps a bit closer to dadaism than surrealism. :cute:

    In other news, I've been inordinately excited about this movie since it went into production:



    Just look at that cast. :coma: I had the privilege of seeing Mr Ejiofor perform live in A Season in the Congo at the Young Vic a couple of weeks ago, and he was absolutely magnificent. :yep: I'm quite interested to see what sort of role Fassbender is going to have in it, though: in both of McQueen's previous feature-length projects, his characters were very much in the spotlight and his performances (perhaps consequently) particularly nuanced; I wonder if being in a side-role will cause him to become more one-dimensional (which is what the trailer seems to suggest to me - though I have a great deal of faith in his talent, so I'd remain optimistic). :holmes:

    Anyway, just about to sit down to watch Uzak.
