I went babysitting on Thursday evening and the 10 year old twin boys I was 'sitting for started watching "Meet Dave" just as I got there. It was actually quite watchable with some quite subtle adult humour in there buried among the family friendly film... good fun.

Watched Pathology (18 R) with DS and his GF. Stars Milo Ventimiglia from HEROES, although I wouldn't have known this if it didn't say... a group of pathologists-in-training in a Washington DC hospital each commit a murder and the others have to guess how it was done. Not bad actually although be ware there are lots of raunchy bits!

Also watched The Cube(1997) which I thoroughly enjoyed. 'In this sci-fi thriller, six strangers wake up to find themselves in a 14ft by 14ft cube. When they try to get out they find they are snared in a seemingly endless maze of interlocking cubicles armed with lethal booby traps. ' The suspense is quite well maintained and it's interesting to watch how the characters change through their experience - good guy turns to bad guy etc. Recommended although I would have given it an 18 R rather than a 15 age rating.

Both of those sound good, Andy.

The last film I watched was Knowing (2009) starring Nicholas Cage. I'm not going to say much more here, as it may spoil it for those that haven't seen it yet. If you want to know a bit more, have a look on imdb.com.
