That's just New Zealand's way to torture you.




We stole Russell Crowe and in return we get The Hobbit 20 days late, fair trade


Couldn't you send him back and get a couple of sheep in return?

I'm pretty sure the national opinion from NZ is Sheep > everything else in existence so that would be asking for a bit much

Couldn't you get a picture of a sheep? Would still be worth more.

Then Russell Crowe? Well a picture of a sheep didn't have a shit sub-plot in American Gangster so you're probably right

Why, what's the difference?

Less people staring at all the mixed race couples in America.

In a way I'm thankful to that daft racist for giving us one more memorable thread before the year is out.

But the real difference is just the vibe, I think. I've never seen a film in America that didn't get a massive round of applause at the end. It's just this feeling that the crowd are really into it, and I don't get the same feeling all the time here. I'm not saying that's all the time, just that it's more often in America. Also - cheaper. So if I'm paying to sit in a small dark room with a bunch of strangers, I'd rather pay less to do it.

Fair enough.

I don't think I would like a culture that applauds the end of a film regularly. That seems...odd to me.

I do know what you mean, but it's just one of those signs that you have an audience that have come to enjoy the film. It's just a better feeling to me in a large crowd. Especially as I really hate crowds anyway.

I too prefer visiting the movies in the US. But I just put that down to the thrill that I used to be able to see films before they came out in UK, which is less prevalent now.

Just in case apartheid comes back, I've come up with the best idea for Dragon's Den. The Segre-Gate. Its a gate that works out what colour you are. Wrong colour and you don't get through. What????

I guarantee you'll want to. It opened in the cinemas here yesterday, and I went for a second time.

I certainly will be going back. Absolutely loved it.

Sorry to see that no one has commented on either Summer Hours or The Secret In Their Eyes.
Summer Hours is one of the most hauntingly beautiful films I've seen in a very long time, with superb performances from Juliette Binoche, Charles Berling and Jeremie Renier. It's one of those films which repays repeated viewings.
The Secret In Their Eyes is one of the finest thrillers in many years, richly deserving of the Best Foreign Language Oscar it won in 2008. The ending is literally gobsmacking - powerful, and for me at least, profoundly disturbing.
