@myname - Uyazi mina I was very dissapointed when I saw the movie. There was a lot of hype around it and I left the cinema confused and still waiting for action. The movie that did it for me was "THE TOURIST". But ke its different folks for different folks nhe.

Sheeew these two bored me to sleep especially that guy, i like Anne Hathaway BUT hosting and being a comic the same is not her thing!!
I just changed the channel to red capert event on E!

Anyway  i am not really "wowed" about the movies that came out last year, the likes of King's Speech, The fighter, True Grit etc...are not my kind of movie!!

Clearly I haven't been going to the cinema enough. The only movies I've watched on this list are The Social network & Alice in Wonderland.

Oh well...

And to think that Inception was not even nominated for best director!
