Saw the latest Batman film last week.
A bit long, and a bit French Revolution in parts (the storming of the prison, and the Terror that followed), but overall enjoyable.
I've never thought much of Ann Hathaway before, but I'd shag the arse off of her dressed as Catwoman. Me-fucking-ow!
One thing that did strike me was the number of British actors in main roles in the film. Christian Bale (Batman), Michael Caine (Alfred), Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon), Tom Hardy (Bane), Cillian Murphy popping up again as the Scarecrow, and Aidan Gillen (CIA agent) briefly at the beginning. Even Liam Neeson appeared again as Ra's Al Ghul.ARRSE World Cup 2010 Fantasy World Cup Mode ChampionRunning dogs over since 2002

Forgive your enemy but remember the bastards name. 3. Help someone when they are in trouble and they will remember you when they're in trouble again. 4. Many people are alive only because its illegal to shoot them. 5. Alcohol doesn't solve any problems. But then again, neither does milk. Drink Up !!

In other news, watched The Bourne Legacy in the cinema last week - not a bad film, though worth noting the previous instalments of the serious were a lot better viewing. Good effort though._________________________________________________

Just watched: Never Let Me Go, a very sad film indeed. Keira Knightly, 2010, worth a watch but be prepared to be just a little shocked.
Based on the book by Kazuo Ishiguro, Remains of the Day et al.Dry books of tactics are beneath the notice of a man of genius, and it is a known fact that every British officer is inspired with a perfect knowledge of his duty, the moment he gets his commission; and if it were not, it would be sufficiently acquired in conversaziones at the main-guard or the grand sutler's.

The Guard (2011) - IMDb
Watched it on a rather inferior tele - screen too small, and sound shite. But, allowing for those inconvienences did enjoy it. Will check it out when I'm 'home' on a decent tele.
Didn't mind the cast. That Mark Strong luvvie sure gets around, and sorta getting type cast as a 'baddie'. Anyway, as stated not a bad flick.

I know not strictly a film but it is classed as a film and I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be.

Weirdly they've been knocking out loads of really good quality stuff recently, it's as if the recession has focused the BBC. I also nominate another 10/10

I watched Idiocracy on Film4 last night.
Pretty mindless drivel but it did raise the odd laugh. I did like the poster advert for a particular brand of cigarettes "If you don't smoke Tarrlyton cigarettes, then Fuck You!"
OK if you have had a couple of beers and really have nothing better to do.
Rodney2qIn the career of glory one gains many things; the gout and medals, a pension and rheumatism....all of these fatigues experienced in your youth, you pay for when you grow old. Because one has suffered in years gone by, it is necessary to suffer more, which does not seem exactly fair.
