    Apparently the main problem they had when writing the script was ensuring no one would compare Iron Man to Batman which I think they did brilliantly Jr is superb in everything he's in and the fact he's an Iron Man fan probably helped ;D

    Hope everyone stayed till the end of the credits

      The last film I saw at the cinema was Cloverfield and I loved it. I think it's just been released on DVD and my advice to anyone wanting to get this on DVD is make sure you have a decent (at least) 5.1 surround sound with booming bass. To some degree the sounds that you hear add to the suspense of this film and listening to it on standard TV speakers just won't do the film justice. It was probably one of loudest films I've ever heard at the cinema and the sound effects definitely add to it; but it or rent it, I'd recommend it.

          Finally got to watch this last night unfortunatly not with 5.1 surround sound with booming bass but even so....Wow, what a brilliant film I was hooked from the moment of the explosion to the very end resenting my puny eyeballs and there need for blinking..

          and I didn't feel cheated either.... didn't know where the monster had come from and didn't know if it was dead at the end and didn't want to as that would have spoilt the movie.... a monster movie about the little guy, not the scientists who are trying to discover it's weakness or the military who are trying despratly to destroy it but the average person who is just trying to survive and save those close to them..

          Brilliant from beginning to end ;D

            Knew you'd like it mayhem, now you just gotta watch it again with 'big' sounds, you'll see what I meant about it adding to the movie.

            Think I'll have to get this and watch it one night with volume whacked up, stuff the neighbours ;D

                Glad you liked it Mayhem, it seemed like your kinda film.

                I also totally agree with Sky, the sound adds a lot to this film which is why I'm glad I saw it at the cinema.

                I started watching P.S. I love You the other day and was shocked at how bad it was. Even my gf ended up switching it off (I had already been asleep for a while by that point).

                I admit it's not really my type of film, but at least even your average romantic comedy has decent chemistry between it's characters. These actors seemed to be just reading lines seperate of one another. It was just odd for such a 'blockbuster' of a popular novel.

                If you like this kind of thing there may be something in it for you, but for everyone else, please avoid!

                28 weeks later is next on the list. Can't wait

                  Now that your gonna love ;D I did

                  Next one for me is Daywatch.... loved Nightwatch so can't wait to see the sequel. My beloved took a look at the trailer on the internet and decided that she would rather roll inm stinging nettles than watch it with me ;D

                  But thats pretty much the same for most of the films I like....... but she did love cloverfield as well, though she had doubts that the camera would have survived at the end :-\ (can't win em all)

                    Yesterday went to see The Happening....such an underrated film.

                    I have always like M. Night Shyamalan's directing style so it was probably inevitable that i would like this.....and feel it is definitely worth a watch even if your not.

                    And Amtiskaw....28 weeks Later is a fantastic film...with some amazing visual effects....worth a watch as least

                      I'm hoping to get to see the happening in the next week or so.....

                      I think many are unfair to M. Night Shyamalan, always expecting another sixth sense..... I'm betting that film is something of a double edged sword for the man, he writes really good stories about people, but everyone is always waiting for some earth shattering twist at the end...... I'm not saying he's the best director making movies at this time but he's certainly not the worst by a long shot..

                      The critics have panned the Happening..... but who ever listens to them

                        I am looking forward to seeing The Happening, although for me some of Shyamalan's films are like the whole marmite thing, there doesn't seem to be much middle ground. I agree though that most people are very eager to jump on the 'rubbish' bandwagon before they've even seen it. There's something about this film though. The trailers look amazing, although they are supposed to :

                        Anyway, 28 Weeks Later. Saw it last night and, as entertaining as it was, it has nothing on the original. I am a bit biased towards Mr. Boyle's directing skills though (He directed the first) and so I would say that :P

                        It perhaps concentrated a bit too much on the gore rather than the character development and slow psychosis that they went through in the first one, but some of the visuals were amazing and they still retained that feeling of isolation in the centre of London.

                        Worth a watch ;D

                          But the fire bombing of London looked incredible.....but yeah, the film as a whole isn't that original......there were just a few scenes that stuck out for me. Like the fleeing Robert Carlisle scene at the beginning

                          With regard to Shyamalan, he has a very distinct direction style, which works for him. Granted, even I feel each of his movies are structured in much of the same manner, but I still find them very enjoyable, all but Lady in the Water :-\

                            I thought 'Lady in the Water' was good for what it was.... a kooky little fairy tail

                              I must say, Carlisle makes a great super zombie! And the fire bombing was cool, there were some great scenes in it. It's just unfortunate for this sequel that 28 days later got it so right in the first place.

                              I've not scene Lady in the Water. Just didn't appeal to me really.

                              Here's a question, if you ended up being stuck in a house due to being eaten by marauding super zombie's if you left, and only ended up with one film to watch over and over until you were rescued or the inevitable happened, what would it be?

                              What? It could happen... I'm just preparing you all for it ;D

                                This is going to surprise most here, but i would have to choose The Burbs....i just love it.

                                I know it's not a classic movie, but it has an endearing quality that appeals to my sense of humour.......Tom Hanks is brilliant as the paranoid neighbour.
