Got Zack and Miri make a Porno from the library.I wonder if it's the law of diminishing returns with Kevin Smith.We'll see. It was all downhill from Clerks as far as I'm concerned.

I enjoyed that film. My favorite 3 Kevin Smith films are Dogma, Clerks, and Zack and Miri in that order. Red State is looking good, but not sure it'll get a cinematic release in the UK.

Kicked off HBO's 'Generation Kill'. First episode promising; nice slow and natural pace. One of the central characters talks CONSTANTLY, which becomes somewhat irritating.. I guess it's meant to show that when humvee homies turn out to be potential psychopaths, in the midst of war there ain't much ya'll can do about in.

Zack and Miri was quite amiable in it's own way.Speaking of war and HBO, I watched The Pacific over xmas.A very rich drama which is different again in tone to Band of Brothers.I'm not going to write some big review but it was very rewarding viewing.Seriously dark in places and the whole Melbourne and Jungle stuff gives it a different flavour.It's got little Timmy from Jurassic Park in it too.The little bastard who nearly gets them killed by shining a high powered torch at a T'Rex.Like you do!

Watched an excellent Spanish film called King of the Hill on Film Four the other day.Basically this guy gets lost in the backwoods with a couple of psychos taking pot shots at him.Pretty menacing with some really amazing looking countryside.Well worth a watch.

Off today, so I watched a double bill of The Desert Fox with stoic James Mason and Heaven Knows Mr Allison with Deborah Kerr and Robert Mitchum stranded on a desert island.I really enjoyed it. I bumped into my old nightmare landlord the other day who informed me that the house scenes for Looking For Eric were actually filmed in my old house.I got it out of the library and so it is.They'd changed it a lot, but still recognisable.An amiable film, but I couldn't help but look at the tiles in the kitchen and call me sad, but I actually remember the flaky paint on the bannister.Quite a few bedroom scenes in my old attic room too.Probably a bit boring for everyone else, but a bit strange to see it again on film.

Devil - a very very ordinary film from M. Night Shyamalan had almost nothing in it to recommend. The twist was almost a non twist aswell..

I watched Skyline the other day.God it was dreadful.I don't mind a good alien invasion movie, but this stunk.I had it on while I was doing other stuff, so I didn't really follow it properly, but what the hell was the end about? One of those Blair Witch moments.
