Right, I'm actually going to post a topical blog: seeing as the Oscars happened last night, I thought I'd give you all some quick reviews of some films I've seen recently... If anybody can recommend some, please let me know.

Solaris - The new George Clooney sci-fi film, produced by James Cameron (Terminator, Titanic) and Steven Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Traffic)
To be honest, I wasn't hugely looking forward to this one, it seemed like a bit of a Clooney vehicle to get the ladies in. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised. It's a difficult film to understand from the off, but halfway through something just clicks and the you get the plot completely. It's a bit like Event Horizon (which is brilliant), a bit Sixth Sense, and much more of a psychological thriller / drama than an outright sci-fi. OK, so it's set in space, but that's about as the sci-fi aspect goes. Go see it! Rob's Rating: 8.5 / 10

Jackass: The Movie - The TV show, but 90 minutes of it!
If you like the TV show, which I do, then you will love this. Sicker, funnier and longer. Some of the funniest bits include going to the toilet in a hardware store display toilet, running around Japan in panda suits, and Johnny getting shot, resulting in the biggest bruise ever. No plot, just random stuff. Oh, and the intro sequence is brilliant! Rob's Rating: 9 / 10

The Princess Bride - Children's classic fairytale, but brilliant.
I was introduced to this by a friend earlier this week, and already I've watched it twice, it's that good! Yes, it's aimed at 10 year-olds. Yes, there's no swearing. Yes, it's absolutely mad. And yes, it's great! Locations in the film include the "Cliffs of Insanity," the "Pit of Despair" and the "Fire Swamp," all as crappy as you expect. The acting is so over-the-top and hammed up it's funny, and it has Andre The Giant in it! What more could you ask for? Rob's Rating: 7.5 / 10

Films I'm looking forward to this year include The Matrix: Reloaded, Terminator 3 (just watched the trailer: amazing.) and Phone Booth. I'm in the UK, so I'm not going to be able to see any of these films until way after all of the Yanks, which is ever-so-slightly annoying.

That's about all for now, just a quick note to say that the mighty Arsenal are back on top of the league! Champions!
