Wrapping up 2007 (films)

Listed behind the cut are the films I saw at the cinema in 2007.  There's one bit of pure silliness (which I knew it would be going in), and one film that I absolutely loathed.  Apart from the latter, everything was more or less of the good, and some films far exceeded that.  :-)

   1.  28 Weeks Later
   2.  After the Wedding  (Dutch)
   3.  Babel
   4.  Beyond the Gates
   5.  Blades of Glory
   6.  Breach
   7.  Breaking and Entering
   8.  Children of Men
   9.  Curse of the Golden Flower  (Chinese)
 10.  Dan in Real Life
 11.  Day Watch  (Russian)

Perfume. (I could make a bad joke here, but I'll resist.)

I see you remembered your login password. :-)

Ah ha ha!

What didn't you like about the movie?

I had to reset the password. I keep forgetting this system requires a password that has a number or other non-alphabetical character in it.

When I first got my lj account, the password system didn't require that, but a couple of years ago they made everyone tighten up their password. It made the system more secure.

As to Perfume, I didn't like anything about it (and if the final scenes had come earlier in the film I'd have walked out then and there, saving some time, if not money). I thought the film was going to be a psychological thriller, but instead it was this horrible mishmash of thriller-cum-camp (and camp is something which I dislike even more than quirkiness). Here's what IMDB says about it: http://imdb.com/title/tt0396171/

Well hello there! It was Blades of Glory. Definitely worth renting or checking out from your local library. :-D
