Tale set in France of an ex army NCO (floppy haired chap from Twilight) sleeping his way to the top. Christina Ricci, Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas provide the ladder. I had to go as part of deal with the Mrs. It was as bad as I thought, send your women to this on their own is my advice.The life of the individual is important

'Mrs Henderson Presents' thoroughly recommended. Judy Dench superb (as always) supported by Bob Hoskins. It tells the story of the Windmill theatre (We Never Clothed!) and contains belly laughs, pathos and a tit or five.What your average soldier wants -- really, really wants -- is no-one shooting back at him.

Pirates - Adventure with scientists. Took our smaller Comedy Dave duo. Great film. works on all levels. Slightly too long I thought. Nevertheless, great all round entertainment.
Just caught up with the last two instalments of the Swedish/Danish film-noir; "The Bridge" on BBC iPlayer. Excellent series and twisty turny like a twisty turny thing.

'Beneath Hill 60'. Oustanding and really gripped my 14 year old lad's imagination as he's off on a school trip to the WWI battlefields next week and will actually be visiting Hill 60 and the Messines Ridge.
'War Horse'. Utter shite. I should've given up at the point where a British soldier shouts 'gas, gas, gas!' and disco smoke erupts from the walls of the German trench they'd just occupied. One of the worst films I've ever seen.

I've just watched 'Warhorse' and thought it was rather good, not a great film but it was ok.Night time is really the best time to work. All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone else is asleep. ~Catherine O'Hara
