Not a big film watcher at all but my favourite is the Hitchcock film - Rope.

By chance, 1 of the 2 worst I've seen is on TV tonight - The counsellor. The fifth element is the other.

This sounds good:

Julia Roberts is due to commence filming her new movie in January.

It is a biopic about a woman so obsessed with rock and pop that she would always have a music magazine by her bedside so she could read if she woke during the night.

An studio insider has informed me that it will be entitled "Sleeping With The NME".

Rock Star has best soundtrack to a film alonside Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, which I've never got round to watching even though someone gave me the DVD as a present. The film is based on a true story, which I won't spoil for you, but Steel Dragon's Blood Pollution, Stand Up And Shout and best of all Livin' The Life are right up there with best rock/metal anyone has ever done. Shame there's no such band Sad
