A lovely film, with an amazing performance from Colin Firth. The cinematography was stunning. I loved the character driven story and the overall emotion of the film.

Another one of Miyazaki's masterpieces. Brilliant film, lovely story and loveable characters. Miyazaki, as always, manages to portray some very deep and meaningful issues through a wonderfully innocent story. Some amazingly symbolic visuals reminiscent of the nuclear explosions in My Neughbour Totoro. A beautiful film.

The Lovely Bones

Nice story, some really nice visuals throughout most of the movie, but I must say I thought it became fairly-dare I say-tacky in some scenes, especially in the limbo. Saoirse Ronan was great and her performance was very touching, as was the story, but I think the film was missing something and was fairly weak in parts.

Didn't really know what to expect from this film. It started off as an almost cliche' "family rediscover eachother", some cheesy and predictable moments, but it gets much better as it goes along, falls out of any sort of scheme and takes its own path. Pity it didn't set out so decisive from the beginning of the movie. Good film, would like to see the original.

One of the best documentaries i've seen..Really great insight into the world of street art,and incredibly funny. Banksy is brilliant and his cynicism is priceless!

When I heard that Tim Burton would be directing Alice in Wonderland I couldn't wait, but I hate to say that when the time came I was a little dissapointed. Didn't like the 3d at all, much better in 2d. Loved the downfall of the mad hatter, Johnny Depp was great!
