    I want to see Let Me In, will be interesting to see what they've done differently.

    I recommend Run Lola Run, it's one of my favourite films and it's awesome. Not very long but really fast paced and entertaining. The music is awesome too. I recommend watching it in German with the English subtitles on, the dubbed version just feels a bit weird :p

    At the cinema recently I have seen:

    Wall Street: Money never sleeps. - A good film and I enjoyed it, have not seen the original but it was very easy to follow the storyline, which I thought was rather good.

    The Social Network Movie - brilliant, loved it. Was worried it might be a bit too geeky for me and I wouldn't understand but it was a really good film, although I don't think the Mark Zuckerberg was too impressed lol.

    Easy A - this was funny and I enjoyed it, its not the most grabbing film of the century but was light hearted and good to wath.

    Legends Of the Guardians - saw it in 3d, love the movie, to say it's a kids film though it was a teeny bit scary I thought lol. Brilliant story - but since when were owls Australian?

    Despicable Me - Saw this twice it is so good! The storyline is really good and the characters are hilarious, seen it both with a grown up and a child and every one just loved it, it's a tiny bit silly in places but really really fun!

    Burke and Hare - A fun film, but not the best in the world. Quite enjoyable and it is historically accurate which makes a change for comedies.

    Let Me In - I absolutely loved this film! It was amazing, I was gripped for the entire film and having never seen the original or read the book I had no idea of any plot twists. Absolutely amazing.

    Alpha and Omega - this is a good kids film, a little predictable in places but cute and fun. I saw it in the 2D version and maybe expected too much from the graphics but it was good none the less and Spud cried at the end.

    Due Date - a really good comedy, funny throughout with real laugh out loud moments. Defied all expectations.

    Think thats it for now - although am due to see Unstoppable, Harry Potter, London Boulevard and Skyline.

    I only go to cinema a lot as before SW I used to go out clubbing but now I don't drink and don't go out and I don't smoke either so cinema is my little treat to myself :)

    Thank you for the lovely comments too, I was 22 in the before picture, don't think I look my age though I look much much older, am 23 in the new pictures and much happier :D

    Films that have stuck with me over the years are:

    Drag Me To Hell - full of jumpy bits!
    Paranormal Activity - scared me within an inch of my life
    The Orphanage - just brilliant
    Brave Little Toaster - makes me feel fuzzy inside :)
    Freddie Got Fingered - very funny, if you like Tom Green
    Green Mile - not managed to watch it without crying yet!
    Zoolander - makes me giggle
    Edward Scissorhands - classic
    Flight of Dragons - reminds me of being a kid!

    The original Let the Right One In is superb, I personally don't think it should have been re-made for the sake of the american market as it was perfect as it was. The same happened to the spanish film Rec...re-made as Quarantine and it was nowhere near as good.

    Inception is also brilliant. xx
