Last night I had a very lazy night due to vertigo and just veged out in front of the TV... thankfully it's not 3D cos that most likely would have upset the apple cart.
Anyway, I first watched Homefront with Jason Statham, and while I enjoyed it I don't feel it was one of his better movies, though that may have been due to script limitations or the director/producer, etc. Yeah, probably a 6 out of 10.
Next I watched The Last Legion with Colin Firth and Ben Kingsley. Now that was a terrific movie and definitely a 9.99999 out of 10. It is about a legionaire who is assigned to protect the boy Romulus, who became the last Caesar just as the Goths over-ran Rome and sacked the city. The boy decides that he will follow the advice of his protector and they travel to Britannia with a handful of loyalists to find the last legion in the hope of retaking Rome, but for various reasons this does not occur and they end up settling there instead. I'm a bit of a history buff so I truly enjoyed it, but it is a more than worthwhile film even if you're not one.
Then I watched Byzantium, which is about two women who are hiding a dark secret as they settle in an English seaside town. For the storyline and plot I give this an 8 or 9 out of 10. The acting is quite good and the various twists and turns make it a great supernatural thriller.
Not sure what I'll watch tonight, what with so much choice available on Foxtel, but whatever, I'll report back here with my findings.
