    Thanks for the disclaimer Agent otherwise I was thinking of watching it
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I've seen quite a few decent films lately, the remake of True Grit, brilliant film highly recommend it.
    A film I knew nothing about called Stake Land, a vampire film but not your usual cheese ball fest, really good film surprised me tbh.
    Blitz with Jason Statham in was a good action flick, non stop from start to finish.
    Kill The Irishman a cracking true story crime flick, well worth a watch really enjoyed it.

    Smali, don't be put off by what I wrote. There are action sequences in the film, however it's not your typical action film. It's not like fast and furious, or other similar car films. It moves at quite a slow pace, but it's full of tension and the music makes it really good.

    It better not have a lead character that uses some kind of Avatar/surrogate/dream body or I'll ****.

    (My thesis is killing me enough already without another ****ing film)

    Watched Centurion last week. Lacked novelty a bit and that was a shame really. It had reasonably interesting characters who acted pretty well but didn't have a chance to go any deeper than that. The storyline was hardly what you would call well thought out but it had its moments where you thought "hey this might turn out to be interesting".

    Smalishah, you may find this one to your tastes though. It has a fair bit of action and is an "olden day" type movie which you mentioned earlier in this thread.

    Jason Statham. Lots of cheesy action then

    Thanks for this Himan. Will take a look at the Centurion. Reminds me of the cartoons called Centurions on cartoon network back in the early 90s.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    I like it too. My only complaint would be that I can't seem to sit myself for a repeat viewing because it is, IMO, a tad too long for a straightforward plot.

    Watched Source Code the other night. Cracker of a flick, drew me in nice and steady so by the end of it I didn't give a **** about how impossible the whole thing was, really entertaining and satisfying. As much a philisophical thriller as sci-fi action flick, kind of Matrix-meets-GroundHogDay-meets-Inception.

    Watched Paranormal Activity last night. Was very impressed with it despite not being a very big fan of horror movies in general. Love the slow and continous buildup and the tension that continously rises as the movie progresses. It has a cold underlying edge to it for almost the whole movie keeping you quite captivated. Bit of a breakaway from the traditional horror movie I suppose.

    Watched X-Men First Class finally last weekend after wanting to watch it for a while. Quite liked it on the whole despite my somewhat sceptical expectations.
