55 The Stuff One for JM, again. In this case, it was the internets coming to the emotional relief of my inner child, who had longed to see this based on the usual VHS rental trailer, but somehow never plucked up the courage knowing his parents would disaprove. End result: 25 years later, it turns out to be a load of old crap... but with a few strangely odd or amusing nuggets poking out to make its passing a little more noticeable. Not what it looked like in the 80s though.

I can´t really post at the moment, so in brief: I thought it good, but I didn´t feel it all as strongly as in the novel. Hard to say why, although I didn´t really take to Hillcoat´s Aussie western either, so it may be partly the filmmaker. I dunno. Glad I didn´t take the g/f to this one as I´m pretty sure she´d have felt the time and not appriciated the experience overall. I´m pinning my hopes to The Hurt Locker (with an agony magnet) for my next top cinema experience.

05 Good That title... really brave decision
04 Sherlock Holmes
03 A Serious Man
02 An Affair to Remember
01 Where the Wild Things Are
