Saw Spectre last weekend. Typical Bond film really. Was good, but not as good as Skyfall for me. Casino Royale obviously still the best of the Craig era.

Just seen "Bridge of Spies." OK but a bit too much of Hanks strolling around for me.

Anyone seen the most hyped film of the last decade yet?

I'm off Sunday morning. Feel like a kid in 2005 again waiting for the last film. Shame that wasn't so good.

I've heard and seen the good reviews of this one though. So I hold out a huge amount of hope.

So, today I sat down and watched White Christmas from start to finish. I haven't done this since forever.

Wow!! The ensemble cast of Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen were outstanding. The cinematography, choreography, music score, direction...

I can't think of any artist today that could match Danny Kaye's talent and versatility, or the excellence of Vera Ellen's dancing.

If you haven't watched in a while because it's on every Christmas, do yourself a favour and appreciate it for the gem that it is.

  Watched Wonderful Life again recently. Cheesy as hell, but very much of its time, and therefore highly enjoyable.   Incidentally, I'm one of those (allegedly) rare individuals who have never seen a Star Wars Movie. I was turned off by the hype from the first in 1977, though I've read enough about them down the years. Some of the vox pops from the audience coming out of the US premiere had me laughing too.  One kid claimed it was like a religious experience.

Just seen The Force Awakens and I must say it was a brilliant experience. Definitely not of the breed of the early 2000 prequels. Brilliant stuff.

Yes I thought the new star wars was very good too.

Thought they recreated the far away universe in an impressive way, so that even the middle aged like myself could feel re-engaged again. Great new characters.

For me there are only four star wars films that count - the prequels are dodgy fan-fiction that can be taken or left.

If anyone is a fan of Charlie Brown, the movie is fab. thumb up
Not getting the love for the new Star Wars film. The plot is a complete rehash of the very first one. yawn
Good to see Chewie again tho wub

There was a big element of remake/reboot in the new star wars, but i was broadly happy with that. True they maybe pushed it a bit far, but in a sense the plot was just background to the character development, which took some interesting new directions.
