True. It's great that he won the second set but still a little worrying that he is having trouble holding serve.

Anybody see any movies lately?

I saw The Amazing Spiderman last night. I thought it was pretty good.

I'm a little behind the times, I just saw Batman Begins and The Dark Knight this week.

I just finished watching a back catalouge of 193 films that I missed for one reason or another, none of which had spiders in them. Stand out's (artisticaly and origionality wise) would be: Midnight in Paris, Drive (with its Danish conection), and Hannah. Most of the rest are a blured and blended mass in my head. I yey to takle Melancholia (surely prime material for DIAH) and The Family Tree. The first because I need a holiday before takling Von Trier again, and the later because I'm expecting a hugely self indulgent propaganda fest and would need to be feeling particularly forgiving.

MIP is a masterpiece of romantic art with a beautifully crafted message excelantly told. A must see if you missed it and you're not adverse to optimism in reality.

My gf didn't have ANY movies she was interested in seeing this weekend,and that's quite rare.

Can't judge Spiderman,not having seen it,but it indicates a lack of ingenuity from Hollywood,IMO,that they're already re-hashing that superhero when Tobey Maguire doesn't even have grey hair yet.Btw,my eldest sister named her first child after the aforementioned Tobey, with Clive Owen getting preference for 'Clive Tobey'....Sis was actually an actress of sorts--an extra,really.

Batman with Christian Bale makes a lot more sense to me with an entire generation having passed since Keaton/Kilmer/Clooney.Btw,Bale is a genuinely-admirable human rights campaigner...unlike the photo-op-hogging monkey crap that comprises 99% of pretentious Hollywood charity-workers....Oh,and Joker didn't kill Batman's parents in the original comic story from many years ago,apparently;they concocted that plotline for Nicholson's character

I assume that the Midnight in Paris you speak of is written and directed by Woody Allen? While I haven't seen his last several films (I think that Match Point was the last one I saw) I do consider myself a fan. I'm sure I'll catch up eventually, I'm interested to see Larry David as Woody in Whatever Works.

After a fairly long game (seventeen minutes or more) Roger finally breaks to go up 4-2 in the third set.

Yes it's Woody, and not far off his best work so far. Is 'what ever works' a bio, cameo, or other? Yet another film to add to a dauntingly long list

It's written and directed by Woody but he does not appear as an actor. I guess he believes that he is too old to be a leading man now but I really prefer it when he at least has some role in his films.

No shit? And here was I worried that twitter, all the live score blogs, the live radio broadcasts, and the LIVE TV broadcast that is being televised in just about every country on earth was wrong. Just as well I came to Women's Tennis Forum, and the Scandinavian Player section in particular to double check...

Or were you casually taking the piss?

Maybe I'm reaching, but I was under the impression that all Woody's leads were 'Woody' in one sense or another? It's part of what l love about true story tellers and their craft... I guess I will have to ask him.

Oh, I agree but I tend to enjoy it more when he actually appears as the lead rather than having other actors impersonate him. John Cusack in Bullets Over Broadway springs to mind.

What is Drive's Danish connection?

I've thought about seeing Midnight in Paris before.

I don't think I've seen any Woody Allen movies before.

Nicolas Winding Refn. One of the many hot young Danish directors out there. Interesting I hadn't checked the production team before the film, and I came away with a strong taste of DFI pacing and flavours of Zentropic spice.

If you like Art, Literature, and a good yarn, then you should definitely see it. It's very much a fable told in Art lovers terms.
