Movies You Should Watch. Yes. You Should. And One You Shouldn't.

There has only been one bad film I have (barely) watched of late and that was Ted. I can't even blame Matt for this film choice - I saw the trailer and thought it looked hilarious, but, well, turns out they jammed all the funny stuff into the ads, and the rest was unfunny gaff. Don't borrow it.

The worst thing was I forgot to return it to the DVD store the next day (yes, I still do that) and had to pay a late fine. Matt kindly told me that I was just merely doing a civil duty by ensuring no one else could hire it.

Sorry Marky Mark - Ted was totally wrong dot com. DO NOT WATCH!

Now that I have that off my chest, here are some films you might just want to check out:
1. Les Miserables:: I've said it once and I'll say it again, I love Les Mis. And this didn't fail. Though I was wary of Amanda Seyfried (am I the only person that didn't rave about Mama Mia?) she has the voice of a songbird. And Anne Hathaway - yowser. Plus I have a crush on Eddie Redmayne. I give it: 4/5

2. Wreck-It Ralph:: We took the smalls to see this, and it's safe to say - the whole family loved it. The outtake? It's a bitch to be a glitch. Sarah Silverman is AWESOME! I give it 4/5. 

3. Hysteria (on DVD):: I adore Maggie Gyllenhaal, and she does not disappoint in this - with Hugh Dancy (phwoar). Literally a laugh out loud film, you must watch it. It gives the history of the vibrator in a hysterical story. I give it 4.5/5. I loved it that much. 

4. The Intouchables:: Whoa Nelly. This is one of those films that will have you laughing, crying and re-evaluating your life. Watch it, love it, and then watch it all over again. I loved this life affirming movie SO much. I give it 5/5. 

Have you watched any good films of late?

The Intouchables is my favourite film in the history of ever. Saw SkyFall with my hubby recently and got quite a kick of it too - but I'm a bit of a Bond buff (especially when it's Daniel Craig - hello). Loved Hysteria too, me and Maggie G need to be BFFs if I can't convince Amy Poehler and Tina Fey to add me to their gang of awesome.

Oh wasn't Ted awful!? So crude, and really just downright boring! Can't wait to see Hysteria and The Intouchables - they look lovely!

Thanks for the heads up on Ted. How bad does it suck when you have to pay a late fee on a dud movie? Doesn't seem to hurt when it's a good one. Ok, my winner - Ruby Sparks. Clever premise and original. Good music too.
