    Really? It's one of those I enjoyed, but i'm not sure i'd want to watch it again kinda thing. I feel the same way about several of Gosling's films though, except maybe Fracture and Half Nelson.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    Yeah, I saw it twice at the cinema and then as soon as it came out on DVD I bought it and have watched it multiple times since. I used to listen to the soundtrack constantly. I just think Gosling has been really underrated as an actor for years (I found an old status on my Facebook the other day saying that from about 2009 ha!) I think I've seen all of his films (I think The Place Beyond The Pines is the only one I haven't seen yet) and that's definitely up there as one of my favourites. Probably along with Lars and the Real Girl and Half Nelson.

    Lars and The Real Girl was ... weird ... but surprisingly good. Surprising to me anyway, I read the cover and just though "whut?" :P very very good film though.

    Don't get me wrong, I do like him as an actor, and agree with you actually about him being underrated. All I can imagine if full screen, that must've been quite bloody, I was a bit surprised actually by how graphic it was. Lars and the real girl is on my to-watch, has been for a while. Looks like it'd be as weird as Eagle vs Shark.
    I really don't watch enough films!

    So it was a choice between coursework or a film. Film won.
    The Hobbit: An unexpected journey.
    I expected to hate this, because I've read a lot of bad reviews. I didn't, at all. It's inevitable really for me to compare it to the book, The Hobbit is the first and only Tolkien book I have read (I do intend to remedy that), and I really enjoyed it. There's a lot of (unnecessary IMO) detail added to the films, but I can overlook that. Much like LOTR it is beautifully filmed, though a little too CGI reliant for my liking, but that's the nature of the genre. And the casting choices just work. Thorin I really thought wouldn't work, but he does, brilliantly, and Martin freeman is, well, Martin Freeman. Nuff said. 8/10.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    Cloud Atlas 5/10 Disappointingly confusing.

    I just ....... what? I understood the underlying situation (I think) in that I got the fact that it all happened over centuries, and I have the different bits in the right order, but as for how the sequences/characters link from one situation to the next ............. not a clue. No idea whatsoever. The only link I saw was the birthmark (ok and the letters and the journal but they're objects), and that doesn't explain anything or help in any way. Also found it hard to understand some of what they were saying at some points (the sections where Tom Hanks has facial tattoos) because they'd evolved the language into some sort of patois.

    Watchable, but I'm going to have to go and read the wiki then probably watch it again to make sense of it.

    I fell asleep watching this much to Darren's disappointment because he really rated this film. I enjoyed what I saw but I got a little confused too. I am going to give it another go when I have 3 and a bit hours to spare!
