Enjoyed the very wonderful Jo Nesbø-penned Headhunters, so, thought Nesbø's Jackpot would also be good. Umm, no.

Coen bros-style black humour + Tarantino gunplay + Guy Ritchie-esque time-shifts = a right ol' potboiler.

And casting a shamless David Brent impersonator - replete with beard and 80s-style barnet - doesn't help the cause, either.

Not the worst film that I've seen, but was challenging in the "stay awake, this won an Oscar" stakes.

The soundtrack of the film had a big impact on the overall tone of the film - without it this would have just made the "Extremely Dull" category.

With the soundtrack, it edged its way into the "Dull and Too Long" list.

Worth watching so that you can have an opinion...otherwise will not make you friends with the rest of the family. They endured it.

Went to see Wreck it Ralph, which was excellent with a very good story and plot twist to it.



Before it was a short called Paperman, the sound track for which is wonderful

I saw Wreck it Ralph with my two nieces.
Yep, interesting, definitely better than Ice Age 4 (the other one I saw recently), although 3D was not very good.

This may be in French with sub-titles - but it is brilliant and very funny, despite it being about a paralysed French aristocrat. Me, my wife, my daughter and her boyfriend,and my parents all thought the same. Three generations all loved it - one of the best films I've seen for a long time.

Looks good. Can I recommend "My Life As A Dog", a Swedish film, very funny, and moving. A real joy.
