Couple of L's

Watched Law Abiding Citizen the other night - a very, very stupid movie but I did watch to the end so couldn't have been that bad. It's just one of those dumb Hollywood thrillers where reality and innumerate plot holes don't seem to be a concern. Competent enough acting from Foxx and Butler but they should reallytry to look for better work.

In contrast, the low budget strangeness that is Hammer's The Lost Continent was a pleasant surprise; maybes it was my low expectations but I really enjoyed this odd film from the 60's. It starts off like a sweaty thriller at sea then morphs into a Lost Land type thing with a Child King and some oversized sea creatures. Gonna have to see if I've missed out on some other Hammer classics.
