Default Today, 5th September

With my Unlimited cinema card, what shall I go and watch later this afternoon? Not a very attractive selection, is it?

You have about an hour or so to vote...

Man on Wire? It's on at our local indie, which is why it comes to mind.

Or are you going to be putting up a poll?

EDIT: Ah.

The only one I've heard of is The Duchess - Keira is plastered by poster all over the underground.

It's really not!

For a moment there I thought some sadist had voted for Disaster Movie but I was misreading it, it was a vote for Get Smart.

EDIT: Seriously though, if those were my options, I'd probably go and see Hellboy II again if only for the visuals.

I voted for RocknRolla only because after reading The Guardian's review of it today, I'd like to know if it really is *that*bad.

EDIT: Aha, I see you've already started a thread for it...

As much as I loathe to suggest a Knightley film, it got in the Indy (whilst not lauding KK to the skies, thankfully).

I think I can see myself seeing all of those so far voted on, actually, thanks to everyone for taking the effort to have your say...and that's before Man on Wire on Wednesday.

We'll see, depends what I can fit in, but so far The Duchess it is.

Have a good weekend, y'all.
