In The Valley Of Elah with The Other Boleyn Girl

Added a couple more movies to the list of movies not to watch again this weekend:

In The Valley Of Elah (IMDB / Wikipedia) – well acted, impressive photography, a little unsettling (based on true and rather sickening events) but very, very slow. It felt a lot longer than its 121 minutes.

The Other Bolyen Girl (IMDB / Wikipedia) – a bit better paced but rather bleak depiction of the court intrigue and general naughtiness surrounding Anne Boleyn’s dalliance with King Henry VIII. Based on the book of the same name and I can only hope the book is better than the film – though I suspect I’m unlikely to find out.
