Least Favorite Film: War of the Worlds left me very unsettled. I didn't realize until partway through that I had already seen Mansfield Park. It's only ok. I also wasn't much on Air Force One. I've seen several scenes before, but this was the first time I watched it from start to finish. The Gary Oldman character made me too angry. 

Favorite Movie: The Noir movies I watched were all very good. Split Second was interesting. Full of Life wasn't at all what I was expecting but I enjoyed it. My favorite was probably my rewatch of Separate Tables though. 

Who else is a Wendy Hiller fan?
