I've been working my way through "Beneath Hill 60" this weekend. Been some time since I've watched an Australian WW1 movie.

Saw the new Bond "Skyfall" First half is excellent. Last bit the plot (supposed mastermind bad guy) fell apart. Got a little ridiculous and made me think of Home Alone without the funny parts. Or Patriot Games

Definitely different for a Bond flick. Backstory, and some salutes to the old bond movies, More drama and acting than usual. Worth seeing.

Bond drinks Beer??

I've seen 4 movies in the last 3 weeks (quite unusual for me, but I'm bored).

Iron Lady (hagiography of Thatcher - 1 star)great acting but right-wing political views being soft-peddled.

Bond, OK, for a bond film. 1.5 star

Lincoln - great acting, really amazing actually, 3.5 out of 4 stars.

Argo - Iran hostage thriller. Almost had a heart attack watching it. Even you know it all works out, very suspenseful. 4 out of 4 in my book.

I'd give Prometheus a zero out of however many stars you want. It would have been disappointing if it had potential. It had no potential. The story was so weak that nothing could have saved it. A total waste.

I saw Argo over the weekend. It was good but they got sucked into Hollywood over-dramatization. Great (true) story, but I really doubt that everything barely happened by mere seconds (trying not to give anything away). It just seems kind of unnecessary over dramatize it. The story itself is dramatic enough. Worth the watch though.

The L Shaped Room.
A real gem, early 60's, starring Leslie Caron, is remarkable. Brock Peters is great as well. Story unfolds slowly with unexpected turns.

Can we talk t.v. here? Only two more days until D. Abbey season three begins. Anyone else a fan? My prediction is that the IRA guy lasts all of two episodes before being gunned down in the Easter Rising. This will force the prettiest cast member back under Lord Grantham's roof. Have a bone to pick with show's Brit writers in that this drama's villians are an Irish woman and a gay man. Wait a minute. That's my house.

Somebody here recommended 'El Topo'....gave it a spin last night, but couldn't finish it. I'm all about the surreal, but that one was just too over the top for my simple mind.

I'd love to hear the view of someone who knows cinema really well on the significance and meanings behind that one.

For stay-at-home New Year's Eve I bought the first two seasons of Downton Abbey.

Just saw "The Fall". Probably the greatest movie ever made with the only
possible exception being "El Topo". It grossed $3.2 million worldwide.
But then people didn't get van Gogh either. Dostoevsky, Beethoven, and
Mozart all died penniless. It's a pattern.
