    I love that movie...

    Yesterday we went to town and bought a few DVDs so we watched Spiderman3, which was for my son... not bad at all, and enjoyed the Toby Maguire trilogy as a whole.

    Then last we night watched Super 8 which was a perfect, post dinner, with a few drinks, Saturday-night-in watch.

    John Carter of Mars

    Contrary to the horrible reviews, I thought it was fairly good. I quite liked it.

    I nearly grabbed this on disc yesterday, as it was only four quid, but the awful reviews put me right off, even at that price... I'll give it a chance, next time I see it. Even the comments on YouTube, which is usually a nest of vile remarks, are fairly positive... Nothing wrong with a bit of good cheese.

    Is it suitable for an eight year old?

    No it was quite good. However the producers, who may know how to market Superhero's are lost when it comes to legends from the Pulps of the 30's and 40's. The only one they ever got right was "Conan" and they got that one right only once and by accident. They did a "fair" job with "The Shadow" but have ruined everything else. They have no feel for it. I also think they should've title it "John Carter of Mars" which would've made more sense. But I liked the film anyway.

    "Goon" - C+ - I had real low expectations for this one but wound up loving it. Great soundtrack, simple but decent story, engaging actors and a good time.

    I think so. No nudity or sex. Fantasy violence, nothing overt.

    I did too & High Sierra on TCM.

    Both great films though I've always wondered why couldn't the ending have been happier for Bogie in both films.

    I know...I know... ( then it wouldn't be considered a great flick & so on ) ... but it's just my 2¢ .

    Thank you... I don't mind him watching movies that are a little too old, but you do have to be somewhat careful, as you will get swearing coming into 12 rated films... 12A's are okay I think.

    Some library DVDs over the weekend:

    Dark Shadows - Wildly uneven and kind of a mess even by Tim Burton standards, but with enjoyable moments, especially if (like me) you were a regular viewer of the original spook opera back in the sixties.

    The Master - I felt about this almost exactly the same way I felt about Anderson's last film, There Will Be Blood: Not quite the "Ultimate Story of America!" masterpiece that it was overpraised as, but a pretty interesting and powerful film with some really fine performances.

    Friends With Kids - A somewhat smarter-than-average rom-com made more pleasant by its great cast (Adam Scott, Kristin Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Chris O'Dowd, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt).

    In Harm's Way. John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Patricia Neal a whole bunch of other people AND Slim Pickens!

    Good WWII movie. Now I'm itching to watch They Were Expendable again
