Go see Sherlock Holmes - it will replace Alfie for you. And that definitely needs to happen.

Oh...and have you been to Five Guys yet? I'm thinking of making a trip this weekend...

I agree, he was great in Sherlock Holmes. I would have to choose between that and "Enemy at the Gates." His portrail of Vassili Zaitsev was really good. I would put both of those before Alfie personally.

Sherlock Holmes isn't on the near horizon what with the P4P campaign coming up and all. I'll get around to it eventually.

I have been to Five Guys - both the one down by UC and the one out on Tylersville Road. - once each. Tasty burgers.

I've heard good things about Enemy, Smamy. Think you've mentioned it before. Thanks for the rec.

five guys is amazing, im sure Tigerland would be #3 or 4 for Colin Farrel if you see it, it's a solid, but not great, flick
