It all takes place over 24 hours(hence the title)and it has you gripped from start to finish.Also the unit which I thought would be a man's thing butit also told the story of all the soldiers families.
Watched The Greatest dvd the other night with Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon very heartwarming film, made me cry from the start.

Set in the Balkans during the second world war it tells the story of a group of Jewish resistance fighters who take to the forest for nearly 3 years and show an incredible spirit. A bit difficult to take James Bond (Daniel Craig) seriously in the lead role. Decent enough but my memory of some parts of it is a little hazy as I'd been to the bar then scoffed a huge tea so some dozing resulted.
Funny Games 2007
A family is captured by a couple of young psychotic killers who abuse the life out of them in a very affected manner. Tim Roth as the father here, this held my attention throughout and the performances of the two young killlers were very good.
The American 2010
Largely an excuse for George Clooney to make a film in a beautiful Italian setting. He's an assassin trying to kick the habit and whilst doing so falls for a hooker (never a good idea). That's pretty much it really but Clooney and the Italian scenery perform well.

Love story set in the '60s to the tune of Beatles songs. I wasn't sure what I would make of this but I really liked it, so well done to the backdrop of all the relevant social developments of the time, great choreography and it doesn't take long before you realise how great some of those songs really were. Cameos for Eddie Izard and Joe Cocker too. I liked this a lot.

A funny one this starring Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg this is essentially a tale of two sisters and their strained relationship which is exacerbated by the approach of a planet which is about to collide into the earth. Far too slow moving and static for me, I began to smell over indulgence and also a whiff of pretentiousness so I'm not recommending although I can imagine it will get some more favourable reviews. Not in this place though.

That's 2 nights on the run I've watched a well reviewed 2011 movie and have thought it was sh*t. This one's got Brad Pitt & Sean Penn in it and is directed by Terence Malik. The story (as such) is told in a very unorthodox fashion with little direct dialogue and huge sections of the (over long) film with no dialogue at all and plenty of beautiful images flashing before our eyes to signify...... I'm not sure.
In short it left me cold and the word pretentious springs to mind.
What I can't say sh*t???

The Ides of March 2011
Ryan Gosling, George Clooney and Philip Seymour Hoffman in this political coming of age drama. Good enough and certainly kept my interest but I was left with the feeling that it was about up to the standard of an average episode of the West Wing.

When something has run its course you should leave well alone, this is a case in point. This stuff wouldn't have stretched to an hour and a half even when it was in its pomp. Some bits mildly amusing and I liked the TV shows a lot at first.

Arover I loved the İnbetweeners Movie but you have to watch the UK Series first before watching it xxx
Yes I watched all the TV stuff and thought the first two seasons in particular were excellent, once season 3 came round though I began to feel that the formula was somewhat jaded and, as I said earlier, I don't think that kind of material is strong enough to carry a full length feature film.
Every dog has its day, the trick is knowing when to retire to its basket.
Variation on the guy buddy movie this one being the female version, it's a comedy with some funny enough parts centring around preparations for a wedding predictably enough. Easy viewing, Mrs Rover and I quite enjoyed this one.
