Year end: DVD round-up

Not as much fun as the book list, but here is the list of movies we watched this year. We got to the cinema twice (Fireproof and The Secret Life of Bees) but the rest were courtesy of Netflix.

My personal favourites are in bold but let me highlight two. If you want to watch something to make you laugh watch Air Guitar Nation! If you want to watch a serious drama I highly recommend The Lives of Others, with The Pianist a close second.
