Dah Dah Dah Dah in a 20th Century Fox styleeeeeee

Edith Bowman | 15:05 UK time, Tuesday, 3 March 2009

Hello and welcome to our brand new blog. How exciting! The plan my fellow movie fans is to keep each other up to date on what we love, and maybe love not so much on all things movie related. Please feel free to post your comments as often as you like, about whatever you like. We will try our best to keep you updated on what we've seen, who we have spoken to and what we think you should see.

We are so very lucky with all the stars we get on the show, especially when they make the effort to come and hang out in the studio. Right here is where you can see and hear it all, we'll give you extra stuff from what you hear on the show like uncut interviews, behind the scenes pictures and regular blog updates.

Next week we have Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston who were very funny talking about their new film Marley and Me and tomorrow on the show Emily Blunt is joining us live in the studio to talk about her new film Young Victoria. Emily has been on the show before, it was around the Jane Austin Book Club time and what a top chick. If you have any pressing questions get them in to us here by just commenting and i promise to try and ask them.

Check out James King's Watchmen interview below - there will be a new one each day for the rest of this week!

Ok i think that's enough from me right now but thanks for having a look at our spangly new blog and i'll be back soon x x x e

    Cool ... nice shiny new blog!

    I'm really looking forward to the New Watchmen... do you have idea if the IMAX viewings will be in 3-D?

    Kyla...are you from Milton Keynes also? I guess we have much time on our hands!

  • Comment number 5.

    I'm not that pumped about Watchmen. It just doesn't seem to have anything that would appeal to me... But as far as what i've been watching/enjoying. Last night I finished Werner Herzog's 'Aguirre: The Wrath of God' and also watched 'Grey Gardens'. Haunting movies both. I also started watching 'A Woman Under the Influence', the work of a master director.

    I am looking forward to Watchmen, but also wondering what to go and see tonight. I am contemplating going to see Gran Tourino or The International, has anyone got any recommendations between the two of those or even something else?

  • Comment number 7.

    So, Rachel from Friends is coming in to talk about playing Rachel from Friends in yet another rom-com. Should be interesting.

  • Comment number 8.

    Oh, but loving the new movie blog - very shiny compared to the old one.

  • Comment number 9.

    Az, Haven't seen the International but I watched Gran Torino last night, and enjoyed it quite a bit.

    I'd heard most of the cast were untrained actors, and this does show quite a bit, but it's fine if you take it into account beforehand. Eastwood himself, is getting better with age...and he's still a law unto himself!

    Liking the new movie blog - so much so i have finally registered and got involved!

    Always enjoy the EB show and especially the movie element to the show as I am a huge fan of films. Listening to the show helps pass my day at work.

    Just a quick recommendation for you before the day of work begins.....you have been talking a lot lately about Danny Mcbride - You should make a point of seeing The Foot Fist Way. Its a real low budget film but brilliantly done and has some really funny moments it. Danny Mcbride plays the main part as a Karate instructor who has a few problems in life. Really funny.

    Good shout out for The Foot Fist Way. Danny McBride is real funny. Loved him in Pineapple Express. For anyone who has the DVD watch the extended version. Some of his best stuff was cut out. Don't want to say to much for those who haven't seen it, but the scene round the diner table is genius.
    The only two Jennifer Aniston movies i enjoy are Office Space and Bruce Almighty. Not to struck on anything else (except Friends of course)
    "Excuse me, i believe you have my stapler"

    PS> If you haven't seen Office Space, go buy it.

    After losing the BBC movies page this is a great idea at Radio 1.
    I look forward to adding comments and reading others too. I am a massive movie fan so this is a great thing for me!

    Ok the funniest film i've seen for a few months is without a doubt Role Models.

    I have to say there arent many films starring Seann William Scott that i don't like and find his juvinile comedy so funny. Also Christopher Mintz-Plasse is just hilarious. He was awesome as Fogell/Mclovin in superbas and was just as good in this.

    As for films i would highly recommend skipping. I can honestly say that one of the worst films i have seen in modern time is Epic movie. I am a huge fan of the Scary movie's set and figured it would be along those line's but man was i disappointed however being a gluten for punishment i thought i would give the franchise another chance and sat down to watch Disaster Movie - holy cow what a steamy load of horse droppings. The idea of taking the mick out of other films has always been a solid formula but you have to have a story line to go with it you can't just stick a random load of micky takes together and call it a movie.

    Hopefully i will have saved some people a couple of hours of there life's with this report. Wherever possible keep clear of Epic Movie and Disaster Movie and live a happy life!!!
