Here’s a question for all you film buffs.
The name of it included a number – eg: Birmingham127 or Killzone239. I don’t know what language the film was in.
RS - I saw an odd film with them all in a circle and pulling the trigger on the person in front like russian roulette. It was a foreign language film but can't remember what it was called, but I know someone who would know. Or is it something different?
Just asked - it was called 13 Tzameti
Is this it?
No, it wasn't that one and I think that number was at the end and 3 digits; I can't be sure though. I've normally got a good memory re: films I've seen, but I've seen a lot now and maybe I only saw the trailer for this one. Hmmm.
I saw Bridesmaids on DVD at the weekend. Not something I'd normally watch, but someone at worked pressed it on me. I thought it was well-done, not too schmaltzy and I laughed a bit. So watchable for me but not amazing.
You've got me stumped then Squirrel. Let us know when you find out won't you.
Anyways, I've been to see The Artist. Me and Mr SD are divided on this one. I thought it was great. Very clever use of music/silence/sound. The plot is a bit corny and could almost be an alternative remake of Singing in the Rain (without the rain). Acting is first class and its certainly worthy of an oscar or two. Mr SD was disappointed but maybe its more of a girlie film? My verdict - well worth seeing (8/10) if only for the dog. I want the dog.
Went to see The Iron Lady last night, very good film and rather moving. Meryl Streep awesome acting, Oscar deserving
War Horse next
Did some Googling and found it!

Here’s a question for all you film buffs. I once either saw a film or a trailer for a film at my local arthouse cinema. The story was along the lines of Battle Royale – stalking and killing each other until one person’s left. The name of it included a number – eg: Birmingham127 or Killzone239. I don’t know what language the film was in.Anyone? Anyone?
Series 7: The Contenders
I'm not sure if I want to see War Horse. I've a bit of a problem with the whole thing.
The play is very good, brilliantly staged as you'd expect from the NT. The horses are fantastic, the acting very good, but the play does sag a bit in the second half and is probably 20 minutes too long. My beef with it is that a lot of the audience are there to see a play about a bloody horse. Millions of innocent people died in the conflict of WWI, and people are left weeping at the horse. Of course, the horse is the everyman, a character for kids to identify with and try understand the horror of war and how the decisions of stupid politicians effect the innocent. But for grown ups, there are better plays about war. Puppetry is even done better, or at least on a grander scale elsewhere too.
I generally feel that animal films are a cheap shot - an easy grab of the heart strings when real human emotion is lacking. I could be wrong. War Horse seems to have good reviews so I could do worse with my £10 on an Orange Wednesday I suppose.
The relationship is the primary device, yes and I am aware that it is a children's book, which is why I have my beef with so many adults going to see the horsey play/film.
As I said, I think the play is good and that staging is excellent. Just didn't ring my bell as loudly as it does others. At least it's not Mamma Mia.
