    like I said - there are moments when I laughed (well, chuckled) when I shouldn't have, but a top drawer film all the same

    The school was Bishops Gore in Sketty - the rest seemed to be shot all over South Wales, including Swansea. Either the film took liberties with their locations, or the main characters were well into very long walks or multiple bus journeys!

    The Guard
    /2

    Maverick Garda Brendan Gleeson teams up with FBI ace Don Cheadle in the toughest case of their lives - to smash a $1/2 billion cocaine ring!
    Sort of.
    That's the basic story, but it's far from a Hollywood actioner; it's hilariously sweary and dribbling with black humour.
    Highly recommended for those who liked "In Bruges"...

    yeah, that's always the case when you recognise a location - two for me were - an episode of spender (jimmy nail) when he was chasing some bloke down the street (newcastle) and around the corner he was chasing him in gateshead - some 10 miles away...

    and the classic of get carter - where michael caines chasing some bloke near the river tyne then the next shot he's still chasing him down on horden beach some 20 miles away..? - no wonder he had a sweat on...

    What bits were funny? I think the lesbian double-dildo scene was worth a giggle if you're that way inclined but the film made me feel like I had been sucking on lemons for two hours.

    I watched a spooky stop-motion animation the other day - Coraline. Thought it was excellent. Certainly not for young children or adults of a nervous disposition!

    Midnight in Paris - a very good Woody Allen movie about nostalgia, love and time-travel.

    The Awakening - an ok-ish super-natural thriller about a haunted prep school in 1920's England...

    The Grey

    Thereís nothing particularly original in this survival tale with Liam Neeson leading a group of plane crash survivors against a pack of merciless Wolves, but the execution is superb, especially the final moments of the film.

    There is a short scene after the credits which provides a clue Teddy. I enjoyed the ending just as it is.

    John Carter

    A thoroughly enjoyable sci-fi romp which reminded me most of Flash Gordon and Barbarella. Itís unfortunate for Disney this was a flop at the American box office possibly because the title was less than self-explanatory. Should have gone with Cowboy on Mars or something. Much better than Avatar - not difficult - and as much fun in twodees as threedees.

    Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol: not bad at all action flick with some rather well put together set pieces (directed by Brad Bird of Incredibles and Iron Giant fame.

    Colombiana: rubbish. Imagine Luc Besson's Nikita but with far less style and a very flimsy plot.

    Tin Tin: rather good, amazing animation - far better than the last Indiana Jones film.

    12 Angry Men
    /2

    Just watched this again - nearly 30 years since I last saw it!
    Anyway,this is essential viewing from 1956, starring Henry Fonda as a chap on a jury who has "reasonable doubt" about the guilt of a young man who's been tried for the murder of his father and faces the electric chair.
    It's (almost) all set in one room, has 15 people in it (all men, 12 of them the jury) and details all of the responsibilities of being on a jury in a highly absorbing way.
    Recommended.

    IIRC the camera starts low, and slowly rises throughout the film to show the rising realisation. I think they use the room temp to similar effect. Excellent film
    Nothing like my jury service!

    A couple of foreign films to recommend:

    Angel-A - Black-and-white film about a Moroccan immigrant in France and in debt who is saved by a rather unusual guardian angel. Very uplifting and well acted.

    Spirited Away - Studio Ghilbli animation, fantastic story and characters, this is now firmly in my top 10 films of all time. Magical!
