    Raiders of the Lost Ark

    Watched this on Blu-ray for the first time.

    Wow!!

    Crystal-clear picture and sound make this 31-year-old classic look like it was shot yesterday.

    DAMN, this film is more awesome than ever!

        Still sets the tears going after the 12th time!

            Having watched "The girl with the dragon tattoo" on TV a while back (The original Swedish version),
            we have just watched the second in the Millennium trilogy, "The girl who played with fire", and now
            have the last one to watch "The girl who kicked the hornets nest".

            Very good films.

              Last Chance Harvey - Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson. Well written and perfectly acted.

                Had read the book and cried and the film was a big disappointment and rather full of Spielberg saccharine. Then I saw it on stage and the tears did flow again. Unmatched.

                  I've yet to see the stage show, but it's due to hit Edinburgh sometime in 2014. I'm definitely going to have to see it.

                    Don't miss it, Daz - it is exceptional and if there are youngsters involved they will be rapt.

                      Cockneys vs Zombies, a true cinematic great, very funny indeed

                      With a star studed cast, which includes- Richard Briers, Honor Blackman, Tony Selby, you know it must be good

                      Sometimes it's better to be a bumblebee than it is to be Professor Heinkel.

                        Men in Black 3

                        Should have been called "Meh! in Black".

                        The Hunger Games

                        Predictable, boring, overlong, and without a single likeable character in it. Plus, I can't get behind a character whose name is one consonant away from "Catpiss"....

                          Jurassic Park

                          First film of the year, on blu-ray. Hard to believe this film is TWENTY YEARS OLD this year - and I saw it in the cinema in 1993!

                            Watched 'The Birds' the other night.

                            As excellent as ever.

                              "Dan in Real Life" - Steve Carell, Juliette Binoche, Dianne Wiest, John Mahoney and Emily Blunt. Great cast but weak story and unconvincing direction.

                                Giving the blu-ray player a good workout today. So far I've watched....

                                Tremors

                                Giant man-eating worms terrorise a small desert community. Great fun.

                                Blue Thunder

                                Roy Scheider uncovers corruption while testing out a prototype helicopter. Another great fun flick!

                                Gladiator

                                Need I say more? This was the theatrical cut, which I happen to prefer, and it looked and sounded fantastic.

                                  Batman - Dark knight rises

                                  Dark, depressing, miserable and absolute cr@p.
                                  Actually cheered when Batman was blown up by the nuke at the end, that's how much I cared for this sulky 2D character. Imagine the dispair when the knob appears in a cafe in Rome as the end credits roll.........

                                  I'd rather watch Apollo 18 again and by god, that was abysmal.

                                      V for Vendetta

                                      A masked freedom fighter strives to release the fascist government's grip on a futuristic Britain. 8/10

                                      Shaun of the Dead

                                      Destined to become a classic of British film, if it isn't already. 9/10

                                        Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

                                        The weakest of the four, in my opinion, but still good fun.

                                        Dangerous Moonlight

                                        A Polish concert pianist vies to return to combat, having fled the Nazi onslaught in 1939. So-so WW2 romantic drama, the highlight of which being the last 15 minutes or so, where the main character gets to grips with the Spitfire.

                                          a rare 10/10 from me.
