LOL, so not even bordering on graphic makes it a no-go. Pretty sure you can have straight kissing in a PG.

Also I enjoyed Men Who Stare At Goats but I thought it went a little too weird, and for that, I give it a 7/10

A film I'd recommend that maybe not everyone has seen would be The Ghost Writer with Ewan McGregor. Enthralling thriller, well worth a watch IMO. 8.5/10

Ghost Writer was very enjoyable.

But the best film on DVD over the last two years is 'Taken'.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0936501/
A truly excellent film that I must have seen about 6 times over the last few months but it is well worth it. Former special forces then CIA agent Bryan (placed by Liam Neeson) doing odd jobs (e.g. Popstar bodyguard) is conned by his daughter (Kim) (with help from Bryan's ex wife) into letting her go to Europe with a school friend supposedly to do the culture trip but in reality they want to follow their favourite rock band around Europe. Sadly their arrival at a Paris airport is clocked by an Albanian 'female slave' trafficking gang who kidnap them. Kim rings her father during the kidnapping and tells him what is going on. He records the kidnap, commits it to memory and on his arrival in Paris he proceeds to capture, torture and kill (seemingly) the entire gang while searching for his daughter (who being a virgin has bee sold on to another up market trafficking organisation). En route he finds out his old French Secret service friend is bent and is taking money from the Albanians.

He eventually finds his daughter on a Sheikh's yacht and an excellent one man fight then takes place against an army of middle eastern bodyguards as he attempts to rescue his daughter.

BA rating: 9.5 out of 10. Well worth a watch.

Films i have seen recently are

Drive - A great film, possibly the best i have seen this year. Gosling doesn't have much to say, but he plays his part really well. 9/10
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0780504/

Senna - A documentry/film about the late great Ayrton. I think i was to young to really appreciate what the Brazillian was about and watching the story unravel and the politics in F1 i found myself amazed at just how good the film turned out. Quite easily the best thing i have watched in 2011. 9.5/10
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1424432/

In Time - Watched a CAM version of this the other night. Futuristic style film with a great twist. Without time you'll die. Timberlake as an actor gets better and better. If you liked I Robot or Eagle Eye you'll love this. Good futuristic action movie. 7.5/10
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1637688/

Killer Elite - Another typical Statham action movie, an enjoyable one though, and the lead actor is a lot better than he has been of late. His best film since Crank for me. 7.5/10
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1448755/

The Adjustment Bureau - Another film that ranks up there with the best i have seen this year. Are our paths really set out for us? Matt Damon finds out what happens when you try to defy that. 9/10

Myself i think it is imposable to pick just one movie as the one i like most, i like lots of movies for different reasons, the Godfather movies i think are very good, The good the Bad and the Ugly i could watch all day just love that movie, To Kill a Mockingbird just a great watch, A Man for all Seasons, Jesus of Nazareth TV Mini Series, Bullitt, El Cid, Cromwell, Hannibal Lecter, they are all very good films in their own right, so to pick one more than any other i would find impossible.

If you're going to see a film in the next couple of weeks go and see "The Lady in the Van"
http://www.theguardian.com/film/2015/no ... an-bennett
A delightful film where the excellent Maggie Smith plays a curmudgeonly homeless old lady who lives in a van who parks her van on his drive for 15 years after the council add parking restrictions to Alan's street. Alex Jennings is brilliant plying two roles: Alan Bennett the person who interacts with the old lady and Alan Bennett the author who talks to himself about what he should do when he next meets the dragon on his drive.
