Definately go and see this movie! Its brilliantly done as are all Eastwoods films.

 

He plays a widowed man who lives next door to a foreign family. As the movie goes on he learns to accept them.....but with consequences.

 

HE doesnt mince words, calls a spade a spade amongst other things!!!

There is a strong moral background to it but I cant say any more else I`ll spoil it!

Good idea Joanne,

Went to see Defiance with Daniel Craig in it and even if you aren't a Craig fan ( which i am) it is well worth seeing.

Based on a true story ,it really makes you think about the situation those people were in.

The acting was superb.

Went to see "revolutionary road" yesterday.

 

VERY well acted. I can see why they got nominated for awards but it is one of those films you come out thinking.............."oh my, what happened there!!!"

 

There was something about it, whether it is because I think every married couple could relate to it?? Dont know!

 

Interested to hear thoughts from others on it

This threads gone pretty quiet! Thought I'd liven it up.

 

went to see The Road a couple of weeks ago. Very good film, very realistic and believeable. Must be just what it would be like post-apocolypse. we saw The Book of Eli last week, was a bit dissapointed as it was bit too Hollywood. Too many ridiculous fight scenes.

Avatar = $250mil + Dances with Wolves + Apocalypse Now + Blue Cartoons lol

 

Blind Side:- Excellent, could be an Oscar for Sandra Bullock .

 

Crazy Heart:- Jeff Bridges is superb

 

An Education:- Well worth watching

 

The Hurt Locker:- Very thought provoking

 

Julie & Julia:- Excellent, not what I expected

 

Invictus:- 1st half is great, last bit is just a slow motion Rugby match

 

It's Complicated:- Very very good (& I don't normally like chick flicks)

 

Up In The Air:- Another great film (not many duff ones around)

 

A Serious Man:- Quirky typical Coen Brothers

 

Sherlock Holmes:- not a great story, but I'm sure the franchise will run & run. Enjoyable all the same.

 

 

This has been Barry Norman for Poms in Oz ;-)

Invictus was a big let down for me. The story was inspiring but just all a bit slow.

 

A Single Man- Fantastic. I really really hope Colin Firth wins an Oscar for this role.

Yes, I have seen Milk, it is very good, and the acting of Sean Penn made the whole film, as he portrayed the character very well true to who he was.

For the kids, Nanny McPhee. It is the first movie we have seen where the audience actually applauded at the end. Great movie with one of my favourite actresses.

We went to see the film as a family (daughter 15 and son 10) and we all thought it was a good family film.

 

Daughter and I also thought Sam Worthington looked pretty darn sexy in a dress too

I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows
