Doh! – The Simpsons Movie

I watched The Simpsons Movie at the cinema last night. What a disappointment. I’ve been a fan for years and I still laugh loudly at episodes I must have watched dozens of times. I must have only laughed three times during the film, and they were only minor laughs. What a disappointment. Which to be honest, was what I was expecting. I’ve always said that when they did a Simpsons film it would be disappointing. And look: I was right.

I am now rushing through episodes of the Simpsons I’ve got on PVR in order to get my laugh workout back on track.

The Terminal (2004)

Today I paid a visit to the cinema to catch a viewing of The Terminal. The film was great for what it set out to do, and I think Tom Hanks did a great job in playing his character, Viktor Navorski. Basically, the film is about a foreign traveller to the United States being forced to stay in the JFK airport international arrivals area because of his country ceasing to be recognised by the U.S.A. during his flight, and becoming stuck in legal limbo when all this papers are cancelled as a result. Note: This film is way too long for what it is and I noticed most people in the cinema becoming restless about two thirds of the way through.

I’d probably buy this one on DVD for Tom Hanks great performance, and I’d like to see the alternative ending.
