  • Rashomon on TCM means I must now try and persuade fellow bloggers who haven’t check it out to do so!

  • “Rashomon”: wonderful film.

    Can’t wait for “The Social Network”. It’s currently at 100 on Metacritic. Speaking of Metacritic, am I the only one who hates the new look of the site? It’s way harder to navigate.

  • @G1000 – I completely agree with you about Metacritic. Sometimes change isn’t always good.

    Have you seen the new Deathly Hallows trailer?

    So very, very, very, very *ten years later* very, very, very, very epic.

    Alex, the trailer for The King’s Speech is up to, it rivals the Potter trailer in my opinion.
