    King's Speech is brilliant. AND you get Colin Firth.

    What more could you want?

    I really liked the King's speech. I haven't seen Black Swan but my friend said it was pretty uncomfortable to watch at points. Still very good though, she said. Just depends if you want something heavy x

    I've got to agree with your friend kirstabubble. It made for very uncomfortable viewing at lots of points in the film. I went because of my strong passion for ballet, but the amount of dodgy things in the film left me feeling very weird... I would love to watch the kings speech. Good story line in the Black swan though...

    I've seen both and they were both brilliant in different ways! I wouldn't know which one to recommend really, although there are some VERY thought-provoking parts in Black Swan.

    Hope you enjoy whatever you see! xx
