Re: Lovely Bones

I saw this in Shepherds Bush (please don't let this cinema get closed down) Amen to that. It's my go-to cinema for big new releases. I think the incline is a big part of that, no chance of anyone's head being in the way, but the closeness of the screens to the seats is also a plus. It's not a cinem...

Re: Wanted - Kick-Ass Shaftsbury Avenue

On the off chance that anybody lucky enough to have got tickets decides they don't want to go, I'll put my plea in for 2 tickets. We can but hope. Ignore my request. I managed to get a couple of tickets due to the change of cinema to the Haymarket .Presumably they are now having this on the same scr...

Re: Precious

Saw this at the Odeon Richmond Studio this afternoon. Obviously the cinema weren't too interested in our comfort as they didn't even bother to turn the lights on. So everyone was trying to get seated in near darkness (a slight exaggeration but still). As for the film, I'm usually pretty cynical abou...

Re: Lovely Bones

I've been looking forward to seeing this ever since Peter Jackson was announced as director. Interested to see how he tackled what I thought would be an unfilmable book. And to be honest I was a little disappointed. Curiously for a filmmaker who has built his career on fantasy, those scenes were the...

Re: Ninja Assasin

There was a guy dressed like Monkey from Monkey Magic sitting near the front... gold crown, sideburns!!! I noticed that. I was tempted to point out to him that Monkey has got nothing to do with Ninjas, but he'd clearly gone to a lot of effort, so I didn't want to upset him. Oh and shame on Peter Br...

Re: Ninja Assasin

Most of the previous reviews sum it up really. A cheesy, gory action movie that passes the time without taxing the brain. Pretty much what you'd expect from a movie called 'Ninja Assassin'. Great to see a pretty substantial role for Sho Kosugi though.

Re: BAFTAs 2010

So the BAFTA members, are they watching those films at BAFTA screenings and/or sent special DVDs, either way I thought the rules are at least the film should be out by the time the nominations come out! Here's the rules for eligibility from the BAFTA website. Eligibility Films must be released thea...

I've been registered since the beginning of December and I've heard nothing from them. I only found out about 'The Boys Are Back' screening through this site.

Re: Everybody's Fine

You just beat me to that information. I had posted it in 'The Boys Are Back' topic about a minute after you posted this. I went to cancel tickets for tonight also and noticed it. I looked at IMDB and apparently it's a remake of an Italian film directed by Giuseppe Tornatore who made 'Cinema Paradiso...
