If it were an hour shorter, and DID not have Jessica Chastain (who is annoying and over dramatic), I might have enjoyed it.

The Last Stand opened to $6.3m (10th place) this weekend..wow. Guess that's not a movie to see. Really want to see Silver Linings Playbook now. It jumped back up to 3rd place this weekend after the Golden Globes.

Wow, only 6.3? Damn, poor Arnold.

In other news, I just saw Frankenweenie. Not bad, I enjoyed it.

Just saw the movie and I must say that I completely disagree with you. Apart from being loose with a few facts, namely that it was an entire team of CIA agents instead of a lone wolf after Bin Laden, I really enjoyed it.

Considering that Bin Laden did kill 3000+ Americans in easily the single worst terrorist attack I know of, of course he's high on the villian list, and deservedly so. As for the length, well, there is such a thing as telling a story and enjoying the ride. People just have uber short attention spans these days

Chastain I won't comment on, I thought her performance was done well but I would prefer a more historocally accurate depiction. Obviously though, a good story needs a recognizable protagonist(s) and a groups of CIA operatives wouldn't fit the bill as well as a good looking woman who happens to be obsessed with her work.

What I want to know is if •••Spoiler:   that CIA friend of hers who tried to bribe the doctor and was killed by the suicide bomber really did exist and if seven people were really killed

Beautiful Mind is an excellent movie.

Not actually a movie but I finally got round to watching the fifth season of Dexter. Very good series.

Anyone seen Life of PI?

Saw Children of Men starring Clive Owen. Fantastic film, worth watching.

E: Michael Caine in long hair was pretty funny
