25 films for January, a good start to the year. 2 films at the cinema were both excellent particularly Django. Other first view highlights were the Millenium trilogy (3 books now added to the 'to read' list) and the Australian film Animal Kingdom. One of those late night film4 ones that I decided to give a go. In rewatches started a Studio Ghibli season and a word for A Time To Kill, I like a few of the Grisham adaptations and they always seen to get good casts and this is one of my favourite ensembles. Finally ended the month with the Bourne films leading to a first watch of Legacy which I liked a lot.

The Millenium trilogy, did you see the theatrical or extended versions?

Yep, the theatrical ones. I've not seen the extended version myself yet (despite getting them for Christmas 2011) but they quickly became one of my favourite film series. The books are well worth a read.

Do you like the Fincher version of The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo?

I've only seen 5/29 of your January films.

I've seen all but two of your January films. I taped Planet 51 at Christmas so I'll get that seen soon but I missed Animal Kingdom completely.

Good to see you liked The Pirates! I love that film and the line that the Pirate Captain gives "Fellow scientists, poindexters, geeks" had me in tears in the cinema. It just tickled me.


Fincher's version was good, but not quite as good. As an adaptation of the book, it's a little bit more faithful in some areas, not something that generally bothers me but it does include one important scene that the Swedish version didn't and that helped Fincher's film greatly. Daniel Craig was good and Rooney Mara as Lisbeth was excellent, a different take on the character and it's a shame that her performance was always, inevitably, compared with Noomi Rapace. They were both as good as each other I think. But in general the Swedish film has the edge, maybe it's because it's the one I saw first.

20 films this month. A mixture of Ghibli and stuff recorded from TV. A couple of weeks ago I found Movie Mix on freeview (no idea how long its been there!) Which has added to my recordings. Can't keep up Smile

I discovered that too! I've got about a dozen or so taped from there to watch.

In January 2010 I saw 59, and 2006 I saw 60 in Feb and 67 in March. However, back in 2005 I saw a total of 768 films Shocked so I was watching 60+ a month, with September 2005 being the all-time record (well, since I started keeping daily records) of 73.

I have less free time now though and back then I only watched about 4 Tv shows, so that many will never happen again Laughing

What about yourself?

It's the quality of the films seen that's most important though. When I look back and see I've seen 50 films in the last month but only liked about 3 of them, it might be time to be more selective Laughing

Just 16 films for April though 13 were first views.

Surprise of the month was perhaps The Karate Kid, I've been kind of reluctant to watch it because i love the original so much but i actually enjoyed it, I was surprised at exactly how similar it was, i thought they's only share a title and basic premise.

Watched The Caine Mutiny today which I liked a lot, Bogart is great, the 50s is a great decade.

Finished the month at the cinema for Olympus Has Fallen which I thought was a fantastic action film, sort of Air Force One meets 24.

24 in April for me. I agree with you about Olympus Has Fallen, very enjoyable.

I rather stupidly deleted my Film Diary in the first post months ago. I guess It's about time I tried to get it back in order.
