I just finished watching Inglourious Basterds and thought it was very good. Has anyone else seen it, and if so, what did you think of it?
Yep,saw an "advanced screening" back in august, thought it was excellent.....Tarantino's back at the top of his game IMO.

Did you watch it on Blu-Ray? If so, is it a good transfer?

Yes, I saw it on blu ray. I thought it was a good transfer, PQ was very good, in my opinion, though not sure sure about the SQ since I use the tv's speakers.

Just stuck on Heat on Blu Ray. Only watched a little bit of it (supposed to be working from home after all) but the picture quality looks excellent. Well worth the 11 quid I paid for it.

At last. Tonight is the much anticipated James May's Toy Story where he builds a full sized house, out of lego! That series has been brilliant.

We have been watching the series of ITV pantomimes writted by Simon Nye and with incredible all star casts. All have been excellent.

More essential christmas viewing in our household - The Worlds Strongest Man. Steadily slipping down the ratings as it is now on Bravo.

TG "Bolivia Special".

EDIT- It seems despite slashing the bitrate 40% on BBC HD, sometimes the Beeb can make it work-PQ was excellent on TG tonight...

I went to the big cinema yesterday and watched a film called 'Alvin & The Chipmunks - The Squeakqual'. It was a damning indictment of the ruthlessness of the music industry and institutionalised bullying in high schools.

On the TV box I watched part one of 'Day of the Triffids' with Dougray Scott and Eddie Izzard and Joely Richardson. I hope the triffids win.

The Top Gear Special was brilliant, but there was no way Clarkson was at the wheel as he passed the other 4x4 on the crumbling moutain road. Way too dangerous for such a big star.

RodhasGibson:daveh75: Sherlock Holmes @ the cinema..........
Okay Dave, and your verdict is ? I am Thinking of getting the blu-Ray.As a Sherlock Holmes movie it was disappointing and didn't really work IMHO.

Though as an action/adventure movie,particularly if you like Ritchie's style, it's enjoyable...

I enjoyed watching the film "Grey Gardens" on Sky the other day starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange. It's a dramatisation of the true story about the lives of mother and daughter both called Edith Beale who were the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. They lived together at a house called Grey Gardens in East Hampton New York for decades with virtually no money, the mother didn't want to sell up and move so they lived a reclusive life of poverty in the well to do area of the Hamptons.

Drew Barrymore was very charming in the role of the querky daughter "Little" Edie Beale and did a good job of portraying her character, along with the strange upper class New York accent.

It's nice to come across unexpected gems like this on the telly and it was the best thing I've watched over Christmas.

I did a bit of googlazontube searching and found there was a documentary film "Grey Gardens" released in 1975 abount the Beales and a follow up "The Beales of Grey Gardens" released in 2006 containing the footage which wasn't used in the original documentary and after watching the clips on YouTube I'm thinking of buying them on DVD.

Just finished watching SuBo on an endless NHK New Year's Eve song special: she looked nervous and jetlagged to oblivion, poor love. Didn't understand the presenter's first question in English, and had to have it translated, seemed to lose the orchestra at one point, and generally seemed very nervy and not too sure where she was.
