    Agreed. I think it's one of those novels where a 1:1 adaption to a movie doesn't work out.

    And yes, the novel is fantastic. It's also "quite" short, so you'll be through it in a handful of hours.

    Consider? Dude. There's nothing to consider, unless your mind works in false ways.

    So, I decided to watch Iron Man 3 today. The 3D didn't bug me as much as expected, but I certainly could have lived without it.

    The movie is an above-average entertaining movie. A few laughs, action, definitely satisfies the little boy in each of us. The end was too cliché, but whatever.

    Just saw the great gatsby on cinema. Absolutely loved it, one of the best movies I have seen this year. That and Django for sure. Saw it in 3D, so great!

    A movie everyone needs to see.

    I like the effects and the details in the movie. I look at very small things, just like the movie Brideshead Revisited.

    The acting is great, top level. The music is maybe a 50 % from my part, but in the same way I think it's cool to bring in modern music in to a ''old style'' movie.

    A movie you must see :) you won't be disappointed

    Ok. See above, I've seen it and wasn't convinced. But tastes differ and I was genuinely interested in what aspects you enjoyed, FWIW.

    Saw these two on a flight

    End of watch. Really liked this. Sad ending though.

    Broken city. Not very good.

    for me it just added that subtle dash of migraine which really does intensify the whole movie experience...

    Saw it again in 2D as I had to stumble off the earlier one. Solid film but not spectacular imo.

    What I've watched recently:

    12 Monkeys
    Memento
    Oldboy
    Collateral
    Spartan

    out of which the last one wasn't particularly great, but at least highly accurate regarding all the little details.

    Glad you enjoyed it. Lloyd was an exceptional physical comedian with nearly perfect timing.

    If Ides of March is any indication of how real politics work, I am really sad about all the interns
