Watched yesterday

Top Gear - 4/5
Never watched this before. Quite entertaining.

CSI Miami: Bunk - 3/5

Film no. 2285
Twilight - 4/5
Pleasantly surprised by this. It's entertaining, looks great and is quite subtle, a rarity for the genre. It is about 20 minutes too long though - 4/5

Film no. 2286
88 Minutes - 2/5
A shambles of a film. It makes no sense whatsoever and the cast - which includes many of my favourites such as Al Pacino, Amy Brenneman, Leelee Sobieski and Deborah Kara Unger - is completely wasted. It even makes Unger look frumpy, which is a crime - 2/5

Film no. 2287
The Other Boleyn Girl - 3/5
Good enough, but somewhat redundant if you watch The Tudors TV series (which is also much more entertaining). The Tudors' Natalie Dormer is also a far hotter Anne Boleyn than Natalie Portman.

You've Been Framed! - 4/5

The Family: You're The One - 2/5
Not a patch on last year's series. The trouble is that aside from Shay, the family in question are actually quite reserved. Well, either that or they're just not that interesting. I think the producers have acknowledged this by inserting one-to-one interview segments in which family members talk about what's happening. This just wasn't necessary with the Hughes, where pure observation and clever editing was able to convey just what was going on. It's also moved away from being purely observational with the cameras following family members outside the house, into their cars and beyond. The purity of the original format has been diluted. I'm out.

The X Factor - 2/5
This is just boring me now. I only give a damn about Stacey and George Michael has always bored me.

Film no. 2288
Zack And Miri Make A Porno - 3/5
Moderately diverting comedy, if entirely unconvincing on every conceivable level.
