    Agreed. I wasn't expecting much given that it was written by M. Night "I-Had-A-Couple-Of-Hits-So-I-Think-I'm-A-Genius" Shyamalan, but I was pleasantly surprised. Perfect pace too.

    Just watched this at work and really enjoyed it, top show! I'm not sure about a trilogy of them though chin ponder

    I also watched The Fighter Christian Bale was brilliant and from the clips shown at the end had him down to a tee.

    Yeah I get that but I think now you know the story for sure would you be willing to sit through 2 more which is just going to be a "who'dunnit"? Part of the reason I watched this last night was to see what the hell it was about now that I know I dont think my interest would stretch much further.

    True Grit- not a bad film but I wouldn't call it great either, I know this was closer to the literary version but I got tired of the dialogue very quickly I'm obviously a philistine! The little girl was excellent in her role though.

    Buried- Top show, Ryan Reynolds was excellent considering he is the only person in the fucking thing apart from a few glimpses of others. Like'd ending even though I saw it coming

    Let Me In- I wanted to finish reading the book first but couldn't do it, now that I've seen this it has actually made the book easier I can visulaize it al lot better. Good show.

    Get Him To The Greek- what the hell took me so long to watch this? First film to make me actually laugh out loud in a looong time. I'll even begrudgingly admit Russell Brand was excellent as well.

    The Book of Eli - It was okay. Bit silly and the message, if you can call it that, was a bit preachy. Funnier if, like me, you find it difficult to separate Mila Kunis from Meg Griffin. And I can never quite decide if Denzel Washington is a good actor or just good at being Denzel Washington in films. A bit like Tom Cruise.

    The Kings Speech - As good as everyone says. Nice to go see a hyped up film and not be disappointed for once.

    Fletch

    Absolute classic, espeially the ease with which he shows he could have pulled the story pretty much any time.

    Watching it again, I don't agree with Kevin Smith that Jason Lee could have played the role, but I could see Ryan Reynolds in it. Definite flashbacks to Berg in TGAAG looking at some of his disguises

    Black Swan - dull as shit in every way, even lesbian action between portman and kunis could not save this

    The Way Back - not totally true to the excellent book but a good film

    Thor - not the best of the marvel films but entertaining enough

    Wow. I've never heard someone describe Black Swan as "dull", even if they didn't like it. I loved it. Perfectly directed by Aranofsky (creating a real sense of tension and urgency) and a real breakout performance by Portman, not to mention Kunis being pretty great herself. I thought it, along with King's Speech and Social Network, were the best three films of 2010.

    There was no sense of urgency it was obvious from the offset how it was going to end and for a not overly long film it took its bloody time getting there.
