If it sounds too good to be true,it probably is!

Why don't they just call it "Nearly A Quarter Past Eight"?

'2012' dominates weekend box office with estimated $65 million
It has to be better that George Clooney's "Men Who Stare At Goats"

I just watched it.
In a nutshell, I'm in the kitchen making a brew and the wife is yelling "you're missing the special effects"  " OK, lovey, I'll be right there.

Now, for a riveting movie, I recommend Doubt, Meryl Streep and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. They can still make great movies!

Ashtonian54,  Agreed - one of the Meryl Streep's masterpieces. That lady can make it happen!! Was never interested in 'Mama Mia' until my granddaughter was staying here and I watched it with her. Must have seen it a dozen times since.  Denise   :o

Its available in both flavours greeny,its one film i won't download,apparently once you have seen it in 3D,you will never watch a normal flick again.on the subject of acquiring films,i watched the new Michael Caine film in the luxury of my house yesterday,its called Harry Brown ,its gruesome and disturbing,but the man gets better as he gets older,he is superb.

Saw part of Harry Brown last evening. Don't know if I'll finish it, very dark and disturbing, but absolutely brilliant acting by Michael Caine. I used to enjoy the 'Death Wish' series with Charles Bronson years ago, but Harry Brown is so typical of the gang violence we hear about on our streets these days.        Denise   ???

Lol @ Greeny,yes Denise,its very dark,to be honest I didn't sleep very well after watching it,I think the actor playing the smackhead in the drug den deserves an oscar too. We watched "cloudy with a chance of meatballs" last night,an animated film,for the family,just as good as Harry Brown,but for all different reasons  ;D

Only watched up to when Harry goes and asks for a gun, and is taken through to the cannabis-growing area. I'll probably finish it during the day sometime, as you say, could give you nightmares!! I've watched all kinds of horror movies in the past - must be getting wimpish!!  My grandchildren have seen 'Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs' - raved about it.    8)

Harry Brown reminded me of the Chester Sq roundabout and how no one wanted to use the underpass.
The underpass and it's inherent dangers feature in Harry Brown. The moral of course is 'Don't mess with Carter'

Underpasses have been no-go areas for years, especially for the elderly. Not a lot can be done to make them safer either. I don't recall one at Chester Sq - must have been after 1966.  Harry Brown also has an element of the movie 'Gran Torino' starring Clint Eastwood.        :)
