have to disagree with you on sherlock Sarg. Mediocre Script, bad performance from Downey Jr, he just mumbled everyline, uninteresting characters and a rather damp plot. Watch Barry Levinson's Young Sherlock Holmes instead...

As I've been working out my top 10 vampire films, I had a vampire triple bill last night of Cronos, Near Dark and Tod Browning's Dracula. All three are top films and I might watch some more vampire films tonight.

I thought Sherlock Holmes was alright, easily the best film guy Ritchie has made, with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law as a fantastic on-screen couple. There were a few occasions when it really dragged, but overall I was impressed with it. It's a damn sight better than Revolver, that's for sure!

Well not for everyone I guess mate

Young Sherlock (and The Pyramid Of Fear as I originally saw it) is very good I agree. I saw it when it first came out in the 80s. I remember enjoying it, but I was young then, and pretty much enjoyed most things a little supernatural. But seeing it on TV a couple of weeks ago, I realised just how dark, well scripted/directed and acted it was. Anyone who hasn't seen it .... Pedro is right ... watch it!

Vote for Pedro!

Grand Theft Auto - not a fan of Ron Howard but I enjoyed this.

The Long Good Friday - Superb!

I love most of Del Toro's output, but was surprsingly non-plussed about Cronos. I thought it was really dull.

Near Dark on the otherhand is my fave vampire movie of all time, I think.

I watched Dogville last night.

Watched SURVIVE recently.
A gritty low budget piece of exploitation masquerading as drama from the director of Night Of The Bloody Apes.Recommended.

Minority Report on Blu Ray.Looked absolutely stunning and the sound was the same.
Second purchase of this on BR,thanks to Steve flaunting that lovely steelbook...
