SteveR750:I watched Ghost Rider straight after it and thought it was better.


Oops I meant writer, not rider...indeed


I saw this recently advertised as 'The Ghost' not 'The Ghost Writer'...seems like there is a bit of confusion over the title, maybe a copyright or something....

Finally got round to seeing Shutter Island tonight (have avoided even reading this thread....)

Spotted the twist very soon (tell me there's a twist and i'll sniff it out from plot motifs soon enough), but didn't spoil the film for me - far from it; cinematography (and especially lighting) is awesome, and some very strong performances.

And a great-looking Blu-ray, if slightly odd in the sound-mix occasionally (but hey, maybe it's meant to mess with our heads
)

Not an all-time classic, but just a solid, compelling movie that paid homage to classic Hitchcock/noir very effectively.

Mind you, i still struggle to watch (Sir) Ben Kingsley without thinking of his turn in Sexy Beast

I saw it on the LCD screen in an Airbus A330 so wasn't able to appreciate the finer visual points of it to be fair
