    Warched Argo, good movie but expected a bit better; probably was distracted at the time. Need to watch it again

    Watched the rest of Django and whilst it was reasonably entertaining, it is a very lightweight film

    Watched Forbidden Planet for the billionth time last night. So, so good.

    Absolutely love old 50s sci-fi films.

    Now I have to watch all my favourite 50s sci-fi/monster movies....

    The day the earth stood still.
    The war of the worlds.
    Creature from the black lagoon.
    Them!
    The time machine.
    The incredible shrinking man.
    Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

    A man for all seasons:

    "What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil? ... And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you – where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's, and if you cut them down -- and you're just the man to do it -- do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!"
    Few quotes really make me stand up and take notice. This is one of them.

    Ebert's article on death:

    I do not fear death - Salon.com

    A very nice and moving piece. He was really an amazing guy. He wasn't one of those people who liked taking movies down - even though his negative reviews are legendary - he actually LOVED movies and was effusive when they were good - all types.

    What I will miss most is his blog though - one of the most thoughtful and intelligent blogs on the internet. On everything from politics to history to science to movies to philosophy. It was exceptional.

    Watched Top Gun for the first time tonight. Despite really wanting to hate it, I just can't bring myself to. The shots of the aircraft are absolutely fantastic, but everything else about the film is bilge, and relentless bilge at that. Just about creeps into to the "so bad it's good" bracket though.

    haha, it's meant to be bilge. It was a recruiting tool. The Pentagon had creative input, that's the reason the producers were able to get so much footage of said aircraft in action.

    Absolutely cringeworthy as is Days of Thunder

    Watched Snow White and the Hunstman last night and it was horribly dull

    Couldnt seem to make up its' mind whether it was an action or drama and ended up being neither

    Also, if Kristen Stewart is the fairest in the land then the place is full of ugly chicks

    Saw Star Trek Into Darkness this past weekend. Loved it! I had huge expectations from it being a Star Trek fan and having to wait 4 years between films. The movie has the right blend of sci-fi, action, humor, and drama. Trekkers and non-Trekkers alike should enjoy it. I liked it more than Iron Man 3 fwiw.
