    wow, one of the worst, if not the worst, movie I've ever sat through!

    93% positive reviews on review sites, everyone saying they love it but within 20 minutes I was looking at my watch and feeling sick that there were another two hours to go!

    I don't know if anyone else has seen it but I wouldn't inflict it on my worst enemy (ok maybe I would <evil grin> )

    I just don't know what I'm missing or what the reviewers are seeing in the thing!

    it didn't really appeal to me to go to the cinema but was planning to watch when it comes out on Sky. Maybe you understand how Johnie and I feel about the Matrix

    I loved it! It's a great movie. The acting is so well done. I especially love Jennifer Lawrence.

    Some friends and I wonder if the reason those who don't like it is due to the fact that there are no highs and lows in the movie

    Sitting here aghast. My flabber is truly ghasted

    You're in great company. Most of the reviewers I normally read have loved it

    I can't think of a thing I liked about it with the possible exception of Amy Adam's outfits

    It just bored me to death to be honest :/ I thought the acting was just OTT, almost impossible to see through it to the actual plot. No highs, lows, point to it other than a look at how things were at the time which I got in the first ten minutes and didn't need to suffer another 2 hours for!

    I thought it was OK. I'd call it 6 or 7 out of 10.

    I was really excited to see it, the genre's right up my alley but ended up leaving a little disappointed.

    Actually didn't want to go but went to please wife and daughter. It was very good. I was surprised that I liked it.

    The film won 3 Golden Globes last night so it can't be as bad as Keith thought it was.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
