    Yeah, same. The chances are it's not going to hit the highs of the previous film and we won't do it any favours to expect it to.

    Fassbender and McAvoy are both excellent. Unfortunately to my great dismay about a third of the way into the film Xavier suddenly reminded me of a younger David Cameron,could not really shift this idea for the rest of the film.
    McAvoy is excellent (was at his best in Shameless tbf) but that film annoyed me. The two leads were done well, and the dialogue between them were the best parts of the film, but the story didn't really make much sense, the kids as you said were dull and I was just expecting better from the reaction it got.

    It did that one thing comic book films often do that really annoys me - it kept bigging up the dubbing and revealing of comic book names as some kind of dramatic moment, just for fans of the characters to squeal over. If it doesn't make sense in the context of the standalone film, it doesn't belong there. Unless it's deliberately released in two or three parts, the film has to stand up in its own right.

    Genuinely more excited about this than any film for years. Just that score starting up again is enough to remind me of what a phenomenal film making achievement the LOTR films were, going there again is going to be superb.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Anyone see a film called Merry Christmas on BBC2 last night? Was about the French, British and German soldiers during WW1 having a truce and playing football on Christmas Day, thought it was quite nice. Better than most other things which can be called "Christmas films" in any case.

    Apart from Die Hard obviously, best Christmas film ever.

    Was talking to the missus about my not owning any Christmas movies today. I did argue on behalf of Die Hard.

    Most Christmas films are so dire. Have heard people bang on about how great It's a wonderful life is. But it's the most saccharin, stomach-churning, sentimental dirge.

    Got a 93% rating on RT... pretty impressive for a popcorn action flick.

    Clearly forgetting National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Usually it's on TV every Christmas and it's become a ritual of mine. Not being shown this year and I couldn't even find it for cheap on DVD. Just isn't Xmas without Chevy and his ridiculous lights

    Saw Iron Lady last night. Was a really good movie and a stunning performance by Mrs Oscar herself Merryl Streep. Not sure that Burgey would approve, but it was a very good movie. It focussed on Maggie's character and her coming to grips with her declining mental state. It really made little to no judgment on her politics. Top watch and if you're politically neutral or a Tory you'll probably like it. My only complaint was that it could have used more about Maggie's pre-PM life.

    Did they play the song Altogether Now by the Farm. If not, then bull****. Should be the tune to accompany that film.

    Watched Die Hard on Christmas Day. The missus fell asleep.

    Saw Hugo the other day. Was fine, a bit too much of nothing real interesting happening. The young actors, especially the guy doing the lead role, were excellent.
