I watched the original version of The Wicker Man yesterday. Britt Ekland was fit back in the day!

The film was infinitely better than the crappy Nicholas Cage remake as well.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is out for download. I;m waiting for them to release the subtitles and then I'll download it.

Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy. Not to be missed, definitely.

Need to watch that, nothing spectacular stands out from last year. Apparently there were the most number of sequels ever in 2011

I flicked through the Girl with a Dragon Tattoo remake. It's alright. Not brilliant, but not Italian Job/Wicker Man/Rear Window remakes

Yeah, there is a cam rip floating around the internet. Poor quality, but watchable enough to see how good the film is acting wise.

Yeah, I have no intention of seeing it at the cinema, just wanted to see whether it was worth getting on dvd later. Already have the originals.

Tbh I don't do the cinema that much. I hate it, ruins the experience of well written films when people are constantly talking over it.

Yeah I hate that, thankfully my local cinema is usually pretty empty (dont know how they are in business) so when I go, I can enjoy a film.

2011 was pretty bad for films. Hope it all changes in 2012.

This weekend I watched : The Conversation, Enemy Of The State, The Assassination Of Richard Nixon and Munich.

No idea what to watch later on.

I'm not sure I want to watch the remake of the girl with the dragon tattoo for some reason I don't see it being as gritty as the original

Finally got a chance to watch Senna the other night. Utterly brilliant. It's the only film I've ever watched that got me close to crying (yes I am a F1 nerd).

Also found myself watching Die Hard With a Vengance on BBC last night. Not a patch on the original.

I saw Dragon Tattoo the other night. It was pretty good, except the end is way too convoluted (it goes way too deep in the Wennerstrom thing than I cared for). And there were some changes here and there that bothered me. Note: I haven't read the books, and I saw the Swedish version first. Swedish version was definitely better, but the Fincher version wasn't bad.

Also, if you like movies, and comedians talking about movies, then I recommend the Doug Loves Movies podcast.

Personally, I think Senna was the best film of last year. As a piece of documentary filmmaking it's wonderful; using stock footage to recreate Senna's rise in F1 and public consciousness is remarkably effective. I know others who loved the film, and have no interest in F1 whatsoever.

And, unashamedly, I got more than a little teary in the cinema first time I saw it. The section on Imola 1994 is so tense and moving.

I remember watching that Grand Prix as a child and the emotions I felt back then came rushing back. I was glad that Prost came out OK in the film as I was a little concerned that he would be demonised because of the fued they had in the late 80's. Prost is one of the very best to have ever raced and I think that does come across.

But you're right, my girlfriend hates sport and she watched it and bawled her eyes out. Because she didn't know what happened to him she was shocked to see him crash and die.

I wasn't aware just how much he did for his country, Brazil. It's just incredible.

Thanks for the Senna recommendations. Will watch it tonight. Sounds good!

Also, anyone seen 13 Assassins? Really good Japanese film.

Saw Senna on saturday and it was a quality film. Like Nick I watched it with someone who isn't into F1 but even she was sad at what happened to Senna after learning about him throughout the film. Really well made.
