It was basically Arnie's The Running Man without Arnie. In other words it was crap.

Sherlock
British mini-series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman and created by Steven Moffat (Coupling, Dr Who, Jekyll). Absolutely brilliant!

I'm a fan of the original work and this is a very good adaptation. The two leads work very well and there is plenty of good dialogue and the fast pacing really keeps it interesting. I look forward to a second series soon.

I went to see The Social Network last night. I really enjoyed the movie, it seems I enjoyed the score a bit more though lol.

Finally watched Avatar. It was out on BR as a weekly so I thought "Why not."

Aside from the visuals this really was nothing special. It looked fantastic but this didn't stop me from thinking of the glaring plot holes, the awkwardness of the story, the hipocrisy of the entire theme-set, etc, etc. It did, however, make me fall in love with my blueray player all over again.

Law Abiding Citizen

I felt ripped off. I picked two twists and only one occurred. Lame. Also completely unbelievable that a normal guy could go and do what he did. Read any serial killer profiles and they spend years working up to dismembering people alive.

Watched Social Network on Sunday. Thought it was a great movie. Couldn't help but sympathise with and loath Mark Zuckerberg simultaneously. Great score as Skippy said, and an amazing script. 7/10

Watched a new Aussie film called Wasted On The Young at the local film fest tonight. Awesome movie, thrilling and twisted and enthralling. Amazing acting by a bunch of unknowns and great work by a first time director. Not due out in cinemas til March apparently. 8.5/10

A friend of mine was working on that. I don't know what he was doing, but I'm guessing camera work (he wants to be a director). He also worked with Noyce on another Aussie film (as a runner for the director).

Luther
British drama with Idris Alba in the lead. Bloody fantastic.

Watchmen Ultimate (HD)
Liked this version more than the theatrical version. Probably more true to the original novel. I started watching it to make sure the file had downloaded correctly and ended up watching all +3 hours. Terrific.

Inception
Really enjoyed this film. The only thing I felt was that everything was pretty straight forward and most things were telegraphed. Visually amazing, especially the hallway scenes. Acting was good, but the dialogue left a little to be desired.

Red Eye
Quite a decent thriller, but tended towards the generic. The only thing that held this together was the two leads, Cillian Murphey (reminded me how good he was in The Wind That Shakes the Barley) and Rachael McAdams (my favourite actress ATM).

The Eiger Sanction
This movie could be summed up by "This movie has Clint Eastwood in it". I was impressed that Clint did a lot of his own stunts in this. Considering that he was doing a lot of free climbing, etc, he really was putting his life on the line. Apparently a couple of the stunt doubles/cameramen (they used them for both) died during the making of the film.

Watched Milk on the weekend and came to realise why Sean Penn got the Oscar over Mickey Rourke last year. He was fantastic. Great roles by all main actors in fact.
