Thoughts from me.

Bad movie year
After Batman Begins, hardly anything in the cinema looks interesting. I gave Kingdom of Heaven a miss after all, and will probably do the same for War of the Worlds. Early IMDb user comments for WoW (not always reliable of course) aren’t fantastic. I suspect—maybe wrongly— that I have seen most of the best bits of Fantastic Four and Mr & Mrs Smith in the trailers already. (Plus I really disliked the The Bourne Identity). And FF4 is just another super hero story a la Spiderman 1 & 2, X-Men, Incredibles and Batman.

My wife might drag me to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory… but it does look like a “can rent the DVD” title. In fact I will look forward to all these unwatched movies in the DVD/video rental store in 5 months time. I might even buy the Batman Begins DVD.

Thank goodness we have tickets for the local film society that provide weekly non-mainstream movies.
