RE: Excited
L: Gazz 10 True presto_3000, I dont excited much about many films nowadays either, but very excited about this one. I loved Let The Right One In so im hoping Alfredson as made another belter of a film. And hopefully Oldman will finally get that oscar he so richly deserves. Im very optimistic and can't wait! :) sp; Avoiding anything to do with this film until I see it on Friday in Edinburgh. Looking forward to it after Right One Inast and excellent teaser trailer.  More

RE: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (2011)
Good casting with Gary Oldman as Smiley, will bring something different to a role that is largely synonymous with Alec Guiness. The casting is surely too obvious in some respects, wouldn't take a genius to figure it out.  More

Not been so excited about a film for ages - I haven't even read the book - but, what a cast, and love the look of the grim cold war cinematography. Even the music sounds amazing.  More

I cannot wait! It looks like a solid adaptation of a great story - and the cast should only add to the quality. Roll on September!  More
