See I'm kinda with Ack, I wouldnt turn her down, but thats not based on me being attracted to her, its based on me being incredibly incredibly desperate... She is bland, the blandest thing ever... In order to gain attraction for me (when basing purely on looks, and not personality) she has to be qui...

Friends? The scene with Joey and Gary Oldman where he says spitting helps with delivery of lines?

So I'm rewatching it on DVD (well Bluray) for the first time since the cinema and... I could have sworn the forest fight was longer.... Its a shame that so much technical expertise and money goes in to these fight scenes, as it means they dont last very long.

All of my resolutions just happen to be stuff that coincide with this month, for instance another one is joining the gym... Something I've been intending to for months, but only this month will I have the money to do so.

Yeah I mean... I guess simplicity is to blame for calling 1923 nineteen-twenty-three rather than one thousand nine hundred and twenty three... two thousand and ten is still pretty simple to say.... Twenty-Ten sounds too american for me to say, even when everyone I know was calling the film Twenty-Tw...

As others have said, the sequences following the resolution of the main plot were very good, even for a non fan such as me... I knew very little about the Wilf character, but felt the pain and such in both the Doctor and himself as they spoke about the radiation... And the wrap-up-montage as I've de...

It was said in a way; and felt so out of place, that made it very much feel as if there was a purpose for them not simply saying nightmares. Is it likely to improve when... Moffat (that his name?) takes over? I've always liked the idea of Doctor Who, but I just havent been able to get past the awful...

My resolution is to not give up on the diet I am currently on, having lost 7 stone in 15 months I'm incredibly happy with how I've done, but I still have a long way to go, but my will power has been worn down to nothing over the last 2 months due to various stuff...

Oh god, another contender for film would be Let The Right One In, with more special mentions going to - Up, Slumdog Millionnaire and Basterds.

Up provided me te biggest tearjerker of 2009, with the opening sequence having me bawl my eyes out.

I'm thinking - Film, TV, Music, Comic, Book... any kind of category you want to talk about really... I'd prefer to hear about stuff released in 2009, ...

Also, anyone else hear of the morbid news about the poster for her new film? Which depicted her laying dead in a bath. Be pulled on the grounds of taste... Not too surprised.

Sadly it does happen, much to the annoyance of the British press who love a bit of muck around a celebrity death. I'm waiting for Jane Moir to now use this as con clusive proof of the evil of heterosexual marriage. This is something I've tried to make a friend of mine understand, as soon as he hear...
