Wet Boxing Day afternoon, rain and wind lashing the windows, so we thought we'd watch a Japanese movie...

Excellent. Writer/director Gilles Mimouni's debut, which was critically acclaimed and a box-office hit. Yet, Mimouni has done poke-all since

Watched this earlier on... couldn't work out why they were chasing Richard Stilgoe for most ot the film though!!
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
Speed Dreams: The Fastest Place On Earth
Rather good documentary following various British teams of men in sheds as they build/prepare/race their vehicles for/at Bonneville Speed Week.
Looking forward to ep.2
Watched the first 2 episodes of Borgen on BBC HD, I had not seen the previous series so was unsure what to expect and I ain’t sure yet.Over Christmas I watched Casablanca which I’d not seen before, the Hitchcock thingy and Hemingway and Gellhorn. Have to admit I didn’t even know who Gellhorn was, a bit ignorant really as the Telegraph rate her as one of the greatest war correspondents of the 20th century. Still I learnt something. I may have to try and read For Whom The Bell Tolls again, I gave up last time
You can't exchange a six inch band for all the poisoned streams in Cumberland.
Slash Blu-ray, I am having a Blu-ray afternoon!
Cant seem to get the image for it on my iPad! Anyone know how?
The Devil You Know.
"The Road" on Blu-Ray, last night.
Watched it with Mrs C - verdict was that it was a brilliant but extremely depressing film, and would never watch again. Mrs C in tears by the end.
When the discussion is - "If the world went pete tong (in the case of the Road it looked like natural catastrophe/volcano/earthquakes) would you eventually commit suicide?" So grey and hopeless.
I bought the Nick Cave soundtrack CD, which is very good, but I couldn't recognise anything from the CD in the actual film.
