Haven't seen that yet.Is it like 'Ransom' ?
I do like Liam Neeson though I compare all his new movies with Michael Collins in which I though he was great. He was sweet in Love Actually

So did I... were you with me? .... Are you a fasting elder Lebanese man that was sat next to me in business from Beirut to Dubai?

(Liked it by the way - RDJ seems to playing a lot of Journalists these days, he was rather brilliant in Zodiac too). Angain thanks to Eva for pushing this choice - saved me from watching Terminator Salvation...

the soloist is fab...but the hangover, nah, what a load of old crap...

reminds me, i watched my sister's keeper, i am staggered at what they did to it...it's an ok film but the book is brilliant, why on earth would they need to tamper with it and completely change the ending...?!

MM, xx

I really liked the book so am fully expecting the film to be a total disappointment.

Saw The Soloist a few weeks ago and loved it! The Hangover was amusing, but not the great film that many are making it out to be. Watched a sweet little film called Sunshine Cleaning last week ( originally shown at Sundance) and Bruno last night. My god - no surprise that wasn't released here!

Bruno was pretty full on, so funny to see the americans going mental over the whole gay thing, especially the 'mr straight' wrestler thing at the end, I really am surprised he never got killed making it.

Funny as owt though.
