With a three day weekend, I checked out three DVDs from the library this weekend:

Impulse choice: W.E., an odd drama made by Madonna, purportedly about Wallis Warfield Simpson and the Duke of Windsor (review by Mark Kermode). Kermode warned against the movie, and I now understand why. Andrea Riseborough puts in an excellent performance, but the movie is all over the place, the camera very jerky for no reason at all. I'll be honest, I didn't finish the film and have no intention of going back to it.

The Dark Knight Rises. I had wanted to see this in cinemas last summer. In fact, I was all set to take the kids (my staff), but we hired 11 people in August, and something had to give. Fantastic movie by Christopher Nolan, who can make a thinking person's blockbuster. I'd seen his previous Batman films Batman Begins and The Dark Knight and loved them as well. (review by Mark Kermode)

For something completely different, I had Enchanted April on reserve. I'm just now watching it. It obviously moves at a much slower pace than Nolan's Batman. This is not a bad thing.
